Cottage
Unwind in this enchanting 4 Star WTB cottage, beautifully situated overlooking the stunning landscape of the Ystwyth Valley. Located between the Elan Valley and Devil's Bridge, it is also within 30 minutes drive of the coastal town of Aberystwyth. Ideally located for those interested in walking, mountain-biking, bird watching, fishing and canoeing. The cottage sleeps 6 people, is attractively and comfortably furnished whilst retaining the charm and character of a typical Welsh cottage. The beams, log burner, stone built fireplace, oil paintings of local scenes and old framed documents give it a strong sense of place. Originally a small shepherds cottage, it has been a popular holiday destination for walkers, birdwatchers and fishermen for several years with a very high percentage of repea...Unwind in this enchanting 4 Star WTB cottage, beautifully situated overlooking the stunning landscape of the Ystwyth Valley.
