About Gellideg Cottage

Gellideg Cottage is a dreamy Welsh holiday home with loads of original character and breath-taking views over the Teifi Valley. Built in the 1850s, it’s a welcoming place where you can relax and enjoy spending time exploring the gorgeous countryside and coast for which West Wales is famous. Tucked away in the peaceful hamlet of Cwmhiraeth, it’s close to Drefach Felindre (with a well-stocked village shop and pub) and Newcastle Emlyn is ten minutes away. The holiday cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms with two bathrooms and is as comfortable for couples and friends as it is for families.

The sleepy hamlet of Cwmhiraeth (loosely translated as the valley of longing for home) is aptly named. Its charm is beautiful and familiar, and you’ll feel as if you’ve come home the moment you cross the threshold of Gellideg. Once the beating heart of the Welsh woollen industry, the surrounding landscape reveals its secrets in the ancient woodlands where, along the many footpaths, you will discover old mill buildings, babbling streams and tumbling waterfalls.

You can experience the full flavour of West Wales when you stay at Gellideg Cottage. The area is home to a multitude of local artists and artisan food producers such as Caws Cenarth cheese, Celtic Wines and for a sweet treat, Cardigan Bay Brownies. Dining out, local gastro-pubs The Nags Head and The Daffodil are just a short drive away.

Located where Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire meet, Gellideg is the perfect base for exploring the coast and countryside. There are ten spectacular beaches within half an hour, not to mention the glorious coastal path. With red kites, dolphins, and seals seen regularly, it’s a wildlife lover’s paradise. Local attractions include castles at Cilgerran, Cardigan and Llansteffan, the Welsh Wildlife Centre and National Wool Museum. A bit further afield are Folly Farm and Aberystwyth where you can ride a steam train high up into the Cambrian Mountains, drinking in the spectacular scenery. Take a sightseeing boat trip from New Quay, potter around bustling Cardigan, or experience the natural beauty of unspoilt beaches like Mwnt and Penbryn.

Whatever the weather, you’ll always find something to do. Gellideg cottage is cosy and well equipped, with a beautiful garden, letting you do nothing or everything, depending on your mood.

Accommodation Comprises:

Gellideg Cottage is a detached early-Victorian property with a traditional layout and accommodation over two levels. The owners have been careful with the modern touches they've added, ensuring guests are comfortable without detracting from original features.


  • Step through the sage-green stable door into a charming living room with a terracotta tiled floor, leather sofas with Welsh blankets and cushions, and a cosy log burner. Dual aspect windows ensure natural light floods in throughout the day. Put a film on the flatscreen TV or pull out a board game or puzzle for some old-fashioned fun.
  • You will spend happy hours in the country kitchen/diner with pine cabinets and a solid table seating four. Modern appliances include a coffee machine, fan-equipped oven and a dishwasher to encourage cooking to be a pleasure rather than a chore. Guests can expect a welcome basket with local produce and a supply of kitchen essentials like olive oil, coffee, sugar and milk.


  • Master bedroom with a king-sized bed topped with sumptuous white bedding, Welsh blankets and cushions, and French doors that open onto a balcony where there is a table and chairs where you can sit with your morning coffee and admire views over the garden and Teifi Valley.
  • Spacious bathroom with a double-ended bath, rainfall shower, WC, hand basin and heated towel rail.
  • Twin bedroom with a vaulted ceiling featuring timber beams, two full-sized (3ft-wide) single beds made up with high quality linen, Welsh blankets and cushions, and proper storage. Ensuite with shower, WC, handbasin and heated towel rail.

Outside: The cottage garden has a patio with garden furniture next to the kitchen, so you can wander in and out as you please. Settle back on the Welsh oak bench and drink in the sublime views as you watch the children play in the living willow wigwam. There is off-street parking for two cars.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen, bath towels, and fuel for the log burner are included. Smoking and pets are not permitted. Short breaks are possible, depending on availability.
