The Lowdown

This little architect designed, handmade timber framed cabin is for couples who truly hunger for a simple rustic retreat away from our busy world.

However, 'rustic' doesn't mean without style and its luxurious touches, this little 'Pig-Let' oozes all of this, charm and much more!

This little cabin is perfect for all of those who wish to experience the rural outdoors but with all the home comforts.

Cwtch Ciliau has been built within the restored stone walls of a former pigsty and outhouse and attached  to the farmhouse

It is perfectly located just 4 miles inland from Cardigan Bay and all it has to offer. There are fabulous restaurants serving locally sourced fish and produce, activities including Dolphin watching, kayaking and walking the stunning coastal path is a must - it  stretches an impressive 60 miles along the coast 



The Pig Let benefits from Wireless Internet - Note: As The Pig Let is located in a semi rural position, it is suitable for basic surfing but not for streaming film /TV content

Central heating in the cabin is provided from the farmhouse. There is a thermostatic radiator valve on the main radiator by the staircase.

Restored from an old farm building The Pig Let's compact space  has the best of both worlds with the old charm of the restored building and  the contemporary designed interiors with modern insulation keeping guests cool in the Summer and cosy and warm in the winter months.


Living area: with sofa, armchair and a small library of books

A compact shower-room and loo (sits below the sleeping loft)


Narrow stairs take you to the sleeping loft (a modern take on the traditional Crog Lofft)

  • Double bed - with view from the window over open countryside


Your own enclosed verandah with dining area, a table for two and chairs 

Covered outdoor camp kitchen (Double gas burner stove) ideal use for simple meals and cooked breakfasts! Very much like camping!

  • *Important Notes: 

The Pig Let is built onto the side of the farmhouse (think semi-detached) so it may be possible to hear the occasional sounds of family life.

The ceiling heights are restricted to 6ft 2" under the platform at the highest point of the loft - The staircase is narrower and steeper than a standard one and the shower cubicle compact too.

SA48 8BY 

Please note the postcode will take you near but not to the property. 


The village of Ciliau Aeron is on the main road (A482) between Lampeter and Aberaeron. When you enter the village turn down the hill at the crossroad (right turn if coming from Lampeter opposite the school). Follow the road down the hill past two cul-de-sacs on the left and continue to follow the road as it bends to the left. ‘Maes y felin’ (and The Pig Let) is the next driveway on your left along the hedgerow. There is a small sign for ‘Maes y felin’ at the bottom of the drive. Follow the drive up to the farmhouse.  


There are 3/4 parking spaces outside the front of the farmhouse. Please try to park as close to the grass verge as possible and walk around to the entrance of The Pig Let.  Please be aware that guests staying in The Dairy Shed will drive past The Pig Let to park.

Added Covid information

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
