About Blaenbetws

Blaenbetws is a much loved family home in the peaceful Pembrokeshire hamlet of Bridell. The holiday cottage sits in half an acre of lush countryside with mature gardens and incredible views across the valley to Cardigan Bay, and is just over a mile and a half from the excellent Penybryn Arms pub. The spacious house comfortably accommodates eight guests in four bedrooms, with a layout that is perfect for family and friends who like to socialise yet still appreciate their own space.

North Pembrokeshire is as beautiful as the south. However, while places like Saundersfoot and Tenby can feel very crowded - particularly in summer - Cardigan and the surrounding area enjoy a slower, more relaxed pace. Bridell is a small but friendly village and, due to its lack of light pollution, perfect for star gazing. It is three miles from Aberteifi (Cardigan) where there are a wide choice of amenities, a supermarket, pubs and cafes. Cardigan's Welsh name refers to the town's position at the mouth of the River Teifi, and the river also gives its name to the surrounding Teifi Valley. The ruins of Cardigan Castle are a must-see, although there are plenty of other historical gems around the town, including the Guildhall Market.

Whether you're the sort of person who can't sit still and loves to try a new sport on holiday, or you prefer to expend as little energy as possible, you will love Cardigan. Get active on the water paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing or kiteboarding. You can also try coasteering, tubing or keep your feet on dry land and enjoy a game of golf (you have the choice of two courses within six miles of the cottage). Relax and visit the locals on a boat trip to see Cardigan Bay's resident pod of dolphins, or canoe along a peaceful stretch of the river through the Teifi Gorge.

Cardigan's beaches are as beautiful as any in the UK, with pristine water and soft golden sand. Llangrannog is especially lovely, as are Aberporth and Poppit Sands. They take a little more effort to reach, but Mwnt and Penbryn - both managed by the National Trust, reward visitors with stunning views and no crowds. Newport Sands and Newport Parrog are both dog-friendly, as are parts of Tresaith and Cwmtydu.

Walking is hugely popular and with very good reason. The Pembrokeshire Coastal Footpath (accessible from Poppit Sands) stretches for 186 miles around the spectacular coastline, or there are some wonderful walks around Bridell through green pasture, fields and along country lanes with a footpath accessible directly from the cottage.

Blaenbetws' location is not only ideal for exploring the coast and countryside of North Pembrokeshire and Cardigan Bay, but it is only an hour north of St David's and an hour south of Aberystwyth.

Location (The Pembrokeshire Coast)

Blaenbetws has been in the owners' family for generations and is managed by two sisters who were brought up in the house and who raised their children there. Although it has been updated and redecorated with guests in mind, it retains the warmth and comfort of a much loved family home.

Ground Floor:

  • Entry through the front of the house is into a large hallway.
  • An open plan living/dining room is set on two levels and is a place where everyone can gather and enjoy being together. The living room has ample seating, television, and a choice of books and information about the local area.
  • The dining area has a large table with eight chairs and is roomy enough for serving a full cooked dinner with all the trimmings whether it is a special occasion like Christmas, or just because you have time to cook and eat it without rushing.
  • The light and spacious family kitchen is the heart of the home. It is well equipped with a dishwasher, built in double oven, fridge, electric hob, and even an electric hostess, together with a good array of cooking utensils and all crockery and cutlery for eight people. There is also a table with chairs perfect for lighter meals and breakfasts.
  • Separate utility room with a washing machine, tumble drier, additional fridge and separate freezer.
  • Large conservatory leads off the front hallway and is a peaceful space that is nice for sitting with a book and a cup of tea.
  • A rear hallway has a door leading directly into the garage, and another opening into the garden.
  • There is a convenient cloakroom with WC and handbasin.
  • Double bedroom providing downstairs accommodation which is good for guests with mobility issues.
  • Family shower room next to the bedroom with walk-in shower, WC and hand basin.

First Floor:

  • Three bedrooms and two bathrooms all lead off the large landing which has double fitted cupboards for storage.
  • Double bedroom with room for a cot if required. This room benefits from a cloak room with WC and handbasin.

  • Twin bedroom with two single beds.
  • Family bathroom with a deep cast iron bath, WC and handbasin.
  • Separate shower room with a walk in shower cubicle.

Outside: The house is in a private location with mature gardens to the front and rear, and lovely views of the neighbouring fields. There is plenty of space to relax outside in the summer months and a large garage attached to the house which stores garden furniture and a barbecue (bikes can be stored here). There is off-street parking for up to six cars.
