Close to the beaches and walks of the Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion coastline, and within easy reach of Bluestone Country, Troedyrhiw is ideally situated for exploring this corner of Wales. Former farm buildings have been transformed into five immaculate cottages situated around a courtyard. Hidden at the end of a private lane, five tastefully renovated farm buildings are tucked into a wooded valley on the banks of the Nant Arberth, on a secluded smallholding. The original character, stone walls and timbers have been retained where possible, but with plenty of modern comforts. There are five cottages in all – The Coach House, Gorse Cottage, Oak Cottage, The Stables and The Granary, sleeping between 2-8 people. All of the cottages have a cosy woodburner to relax at the end of a day out in the fresh air. Just perfect!
What makes a stay at The Granary at Troedyrhiw unique?
Between them, they offer almost all permutations of size, from the one-bedroomed Coach House sleeping two, to the four-bedroomed Granary sleeping eight. Troedyrhiw is also ideal for larger groups – if you are planning a reunion or special gathering the cottages can accommodate up to 23 people. All cottages are warmly furnished in a restful modern/ rustic style and come with woodburning stoves (plus central heating of course), beautiful bathrooms and Freeview TVs. The picture outside is just as appealing. Troedyrhiw, surrounded by well-kept lawns, is located in an idyllic wooded valley at the end of a road half-a-mile long with no through traffic, making it very child-friendly (the kids also love the farm animals on this 13-acre smallholding, including miniature Shetland ponies, pigs, ducks and chickens) with abundant wildlife and walking too. Troedyrhiw is close to the attractive town of Cardigan and the beaches and bays of the unspoilt Ceredigion Heritage Coast and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Cardigan area?
Cardigan is the historic gateway into Ceredigion from the south west. Cardigan's Welsh name is Aberteifi - the [town at]the mouth of the Teifi - which developed into a significant port, giving its name to Cardigan Bay, which extends north beyond Aberystwyth. Cardigan was the county town of the shire for many centuries, and today serves a wide area of south Ceredigion and north Pembrokeshire. Cardigan has a vibrant contemporary arts scene, with theatres and galleries and a host of colourful events, interesting shopping at markets and independent shops and a great choice of cafes, pubs and restaurants.
