- SQF 1
This cute renovated milking barn is located close to the pretty habourside town of Aberaeron and the beautiful coastline of Cardigan Bay in West Wales.
Cosy down in front of the log-burner and chill in this super insullated cabin, drink in the uninterupted views while sitting on your own private deck with a glass of something cold.
Either way, you cannot fail to be charmed by this little gem of a place.
There is plenty to see and do right on your doorstep - Marvel at the incredible wildlife that surrounds the cabin, these include kites, buzzards and butterflies.Breathe in the fresh country air whilst overlooking the organically farmed land with grazing Hereford cattle and Llanwenog sheep.
Close by is the Ceredigion Coastal Path which stretches for approx 60 miles up the coast and is a spectacular vantage point to watch for an amazing array of sea birds, dolphins, porpoise and seals.
THE LOW DOWN:
Y Llaethdy is a traditional old stone barn which has been transformed and extended into a light and airy open-plan space with a secret, wildflower-roofed cabin bedroom behind a bookshelf.
Kitchen /Living /Dining Area
The living area includes a well equipped kitchen, dining table and chairs, a large sofa and television and a comfy armchair set in front of a working wood burning stove.
Push the integrated bookshelf to magically reveal an adjoining timber barn with wildflower roof that houses the bedroom (with king size bed) and shower-room. The inside walls are clad with birch-ply giving the space a Nordic feel.
From the living room, oak French doors open out onto a decking area with table and chairs and extends beyond to a large private garden with fruit trees.
Y Llaethdy benefits from wireless internet but please note we are in a semi-rural location and whilst the internet is suitable for basic surfing it is not strong enough to stream TV.
Y Llaethdy is a private, self-contained building with its own parking area, entrance and a large garden with uninterrupted views out on to open countryside.
Other things to note
Please be aware that the bed is custom made and is lower than a standard bed.
Y Llaethdy overlooks working organic fields. Sheep and cows are raised and hay and crops are grown and harvested depending on the season so you may see the occasional tractor (and farmer) pass by.

Added Covid information
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
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
