Make your way along a leafy lane, over a historic stone bridge and then feast your eyes on the beauty of Penyrallt Fach Cottage. This pretty stone Grade II listed Victorian Piggery, has been converted into a delightful comfortable holiday cottage that sleeps four guests, on a secluded traditional organic dairy farm.
The cottage is an ideal base from which to explore the many glories of West Wales. Cardigan Bay's stunning beaches are just thirty minutes away by car. The castles, gardens and other historic sites of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire are all within easy reach as are the attractive small market towns of the Tefii Valley which forms the county boundaries between Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire. The Cathedral City of St David ’s (the smallest city in Britain) is too within easy reach.
For those who enjoy walking, the spectacular Pembrokeshire coast-path is a must and there is also fantastic hill walking inland in the Cambrian mountains of Ceredigion and the Preseli mountains of Pembrokeshire.
The area around the farm is a haven for wildlife with resident badgers, rabbits, foxes as well as buzzards, herons, red kites and kingfishers, along with many species of indigenous British flora and fauna.

The cottage has immense character and rustic charm with exposed beams, ceilings clad with wood and wooden floors. The owners have made many pieces of furniture using harvested wood from the farm, and the cheerful decor encompasses eco-friendly organic paints of warm rich colours.
The main room is an open-plan, spacious fully-equipped kitchen/sitting/dining room with big farmhouse table and seating for four guests, two comfortable sofas, television screen/monitor with integral DVD player (please note that the cottage has no television reception) and a lovely log burning stove - ideal for those more chilly nights! Upon arrival, a freshly made cake and fresh flowers provide a warm welcome.
There are many traditional games and books as well as Wi-Fi, radio, DVD player and extensive selection of DVDs for guests to enjoy in front of a roaring fire, after a long walk in the hills or day on the beach - a perfect country retreat!
Both bedrooms are attractively and simply furnished. The double room is the 'master', and the smaller bedroom has two quaint single beds similar to the old traditional Welsh cupboard beds, a unique and quirky feature.
Additional information: Bed linen is supplied, as well as lovely Welsh wool blankets. Natural springs from the farm provide pure water to the cottage. All fuel and electricity are inclusive in the rental charge. A member of the 'Soil Association Open Farm Network', the owners are happy to arrange a complimentary guided farm tour (by arrangement). Central heating is available from October - May and is included in the rental.
