The Lowdown

Tŷ Twt is an architect's own barn conversion near Cardigan Bay and is a little haven set in the coastal hills above the delightful Aeron Valley. 

Sleeping is in the croglofft, above the kitchen-diner, with 2nd bedroom and shower room on the ground level ; there is also underfloor heating and a cosy log burner. 

Ty Twt is part of the old stone range in the former store house. Adjacent is Cuddfan and the Long Barn.

Please feel at home to 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.

The Farm, is restored and managed sustainably in an exemplary way, with a wind turbine and ground-source heat pumps.

Local natural materials – stone, Oak, Ash, Douglas fir and lime.

The carefully crafted timber interior is comfortable and imaginatively designed.

How to get there:

Blaengors, Dihewyd, Ceredigion. 

Use the post code SA48 7QR to satnav directions.

Blaengors is the second property on the left after 1/2 mile. It is signed Blaengors and WILDERNESS. No buildings are seen from the road but you should see a wind turbine in the field next to the gate.

Note: Entering the postcode into sat-nav takes you to the next door property. Gors Villa. Blaenllain or Llainfach.

With Gors Villa on your left, continue for 100 yards and Blaengors is on your right.

Also, Google maps might tell you to take a different route - the above is the easiest, if not the shortest.

On arrival at Wilderness, please drive slowly - there are free- range animals.

Turn into the farm lane and drive 100 meters to the sheds where the later swings right behind the farmhouse.

Ty Twt is past the farmhouse and straight ahead up a tiny track beneath the trees. Follow the track round to the left and park facing the cottage.

Your property will be clean and tidy upon arrival. 

In light of the Coronavirus, we are asking our homeowners to instruct their housekeepers to focus more on items that are frequently touched e.g. door handles, keys, remote controls, radios, light switches and bedside lamp switches which should be cleaned and wiped thoroughly with anti-bacterial disposable wipes. 

Current NHS guidance is that Coronavirus is most commonly transmitted via human-to-human contact and cannot survive on surfaces for long but we consider this additional cleaning a sensible precaution. 

We would suggest that you wash your hands regularly, as handwashing remains the best defence for infection prevention.

If you have any further concerns, we recommend that you bring your own anti-bacterial wipes and anti-bacterial handwash with you. 

If you do fall ill during your stay and suspect Coronavirus, or do so soon after travelling home, please do notify us immediately.

If you develop symptoms whilst you are on holiday 

Self isolate

Call 111if your symptoms get worse or persist

Visitors should inform Sea & Slate and/or the owner of property

We sadly are unable to refund you for your holiday if for any reason you cancel your break within 8 weeks arrival period – We strongly advise that you check your terms on your travel insurance as to how you may be affected if you are forced to cancel

Wishing you a healthy and happy stay

Walking, exploring and relaxing...

We had a wonderful stay at Wildernest. We escaped our busy, city life to spend a cosy few days in rural Wales at the start of the year. Hugh & Jude have created a perfect little getaway, the space is beautifully designed with lots of thoughtful touches. The scenery around was beautiful - you feel very close to nature. Hugh & Jude were lovely hosts and recommended some nice walks and places to visit. Walking, exploring, and relaxing in the cottage was just what we needed. We will definitely be recommending this place to our friends.

Everything was so beautiful.

We stayed at Hugh’s place for 3 nights during October and had such a lovely relaxing time! Everything was so beautiful and the cottage is wonderfully warm even before you use the log burner! Do not hesitate to book!

Idyllic! Ty Twt is a lovely place to stay. The moment you walk through the door you instantly feel at home, it’s the perfect getaway. The house is artfully crafted and decorated, it's beautifully furnished, sparkly clean, cosy and very well equipped! Roaming around on the property reveals many nice surprises, from the animals to little meadows and the annex next door and there is lots to do nearby …but I just wanted to kick back at the house and relax … Jude and Hugh are lovely hosts, thank you again for your hospitality and for sharing your lovely house with us! We look forward to returning ☺

'Get away from it all'

It was a relatively late decision to have a relaxing break to "get away from it all" and I'm glad we decided to spend it at Ty Twt! It was exactly what we were after. A secluded rural location where we could spend some quality time together as a family. Our days were spent rising early, pottering about the cottage, admiring the oak door latches (you'll see) walking the grounds, venturing out to local beaches, walking the cliff tops (in the wind and rain, from Penbryn to Llangrannog with my daughter on my back! It was an enjoyable challenge!), returning for an evening meal and retiring to the sofa for quite chats whilst our daughter slept upstairs. Although it wasn't a necessity, we couldn't resist lighting the stove for added comfort too! Hugh and Jude made our arrival quick and easy. I was relieved and thankful for the loan of Jude's coffee grinder too after forgetting mine. It was probably the coffee that got me up the Penbryn cliffs! There are many other enjoyable treats around the cottage but I won't spoil the surprise... but owls and chickens outside the window are one. And of course, the dolphins in Cardigan Bay. We highly recommend. We hope to go back one day, even if to relax even more! Thanks again! Ben, Laura & Eilidh
