The farm was off the beaten track, just as we’d hoped for. Our renovated stone stable had everything a household requires. Peace and quiet pure. Our landlord Hugh always had time for a chat although we're sure he had more important tasks planned. His lovely daughter Helen was an encyclopedia of knowledge, we spent many an hour quizzing her on just about everything and her 6 horses. So patient...thank you Helen!
Newport, small village 10 mins to the South by car has some excellent pubs. Cardigan, 10 mins to the North by car has everything that a small City has, shops, supermarket, discounter, banks, petrol Station, pubs, restaurants, fish 'n chip shop.
Moylegrove itself is quaint, but that's it. Good garden center just outside the village that I'm sure does more business with food and drinks than gardening equipment.
Aberaeron is a must see, small sea port with the most amazing honey ice cream.
We lucked out with the weather, 14 days of sunshine and blue skies.
The locals are all so friendly it's praiseworthy.
There's a mini Stonehenge 10 mins drive from Newport...Pentre Ifan...worth a visit.
Bessie’s pub in Pontfaen, valley of Cym Gwaun is also a must visit. 20 mins from Newport.
We'd love to come again but 1300km from home is a long trip.
Lovely to look at but totally impractical in the somewhat colder weather (late March). The two storage heaters and one elec wall heater (non storage, in lounge) plus whatever one pays for the hot water (fixed on a timer I guess) cost us £37 in electricity for the week - and we were still cold all the time despite the woodburning stove being lit afternoons and evenings. Only practical as a summer holiday let because of this. I wouldn't go to a cottage where heating isn't included in the price again.
Nicely decorated etc but needs more cutlery (2 dessert spoons and two tablespoons, oddly) and mugs. Better quality frying pan would be welcome too.
Cooker very old fashioned electric hot plates - take ages to heat up and lack controllability.
Wi fi signal was so poor we used our phones (only got phone signal upstairs) for internet use to our laptops.
Jacuzzi bath totally impractical with a flimsy curtain - the jets sent water all over the floor so only used it once (then mopped up).
Couldn't make the tumble drier work despite instruction book.
There were no matches for the woodburner, and given the cottage is miles from a shop, this was not a good start upon arrival. Fortunately found an old cig lighter in the car!
Bed very comfortable. Nice decor, curtains etc in bedroom.
Gym was an unusual feature - very good idea!
Difficult to find from instructions given - just as well the farm was named on the OS map which we fortunately had with us.

We rented this cottage for a week and found it to be just what we needed - quiet, relaxed, and finished to a high standard. There is plenty to see and do in the area, with the Pembrokeshire coastal path and Picton Castle being of particular note. We tended to go out and about during the day then come back to the cottage during daylight hours (the roads can be a little scary!) to relax for the evening. A car is essential. The cottage had pretty much everything we needed (scissors would have been helpful), and despite not really needing it for heat, the log stove was lovely. The only thing we'd do differently if we visit again, would be to bring some DVDs.
