The Thatched Cottage

Ciliau Aeron, Lampeter, Ceredigion, Wales

Charming historic cottage with HOT TUB near Aberaeron, set in 80 acres of woodland, meadows + grasslands offers the perfect retreat for total R+R.

The Quirky Tour

The cottage is set around a driveway as you enter the farm. There are wonderful views across the fields beyond and you can do a 2 mile walk around the farm. There is also a fun space for all - the Games Barn has ping pong, pool and a pizza oven amongst other things. This would be a great base for a holiday In West Wales with the coast a short drive away. There is enough to keep you entertained on site if you don’t want to get in the car.
