Cuddfan translates to 'hiding space and is a haven set in the coastal hills above the delightful Aeron Valley.
Sleeps 2. Cuddfan has a large living space, open to the exposed A-frame roof beams.
Downstairs has a kitchen with a seating area, a living room with warm, wooden floors, two easy chairs, long bench seating and a wood-burner.
Sleeping is above in the Crogloft up steep stairs.
The lavatory with wet room shower is contained in an immaculate pod.
Cuddfan is part of the old stone range in the former cart house and stables. Adjacent is Ty Twt and the Long Barn.
Please feel at home and wander around the meadows, wet grasslands and woodland. By keeping to paths, ground-nesting birds and animals are not disturbed. The Long Barn is available for the use of guests, with its open wood fire, sofas, piano and table football. There may be other guests so please respect their privacy.
It is a magical microcosm possessing that precious commodity of seclusion. The habitat, neglected farmland, is being managed to produce a rich biodiversity of plants and animals. Our rarebreed konik horses graze the wet pastures and there are two ancient hay meadows with abundant wild flowers.
There are two special aspects to the landscape here - the Cambrian mountains and the Cardigan coast - making this a real green and wild destination. The Cardigan coast is notched with a chain of secluded coves with nestling villages. It is one of the best spots to see sea life with regular sightings of dolphins, porpoises, and seals. Seabirds perform from nests on the cliffs and it is one of the few places to see the masterful aerobatics of choughs. Cwm Silio is one the best-kept secrets; this beautifully secluded cove lies down a path from the back of a graveyard, through temperate rain forest, past waterfalls, across streams and butterfly- strewn slopes. There's not an artefact in sight. Further on, Castell Bach iron-age fort remains with the incredibly folded rock formations.
The lovely owners live in the near-by farmhouse. You can drop in and ask for help or some ideas where to go. Otherwise, they will not disturb you.
A few things to note:
There is no television but broadband can allow you to use your computers. Phone signals are okay outside but non-existent indoors because of the thick stone walls. Don't worry, you can always use internet communications.
The farm is restored and managed sustainably with a wind turbine and ground-source heat pump!
Railway stations are 40 minutes away in Carmarthen and Aberystwyth. Bring bikes if you like hills. Feet are best for getting around, we find, and a car to get to the coast and to the mountains.
