This wonderful, detached farmhouse, surrounded by a working farm six miles from Llanilar, can sleep eight people in four bedrooms.

Cwmllechwedd Uchaf is a beautiful, family holiday home surrounded by a working farm and rural countryside, six miles from Llanilar in Mid Wales. The property can sleep eight people in four bedrooms, including a king-size double room with an en-suite bathroom, a double room and two twin rooms. There is a bathroom on the first floor and a shower room on the ground floor, accessed down two stairs from the open plan living space, which has a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with a woodburner. There is also a separate sitting room with another woodburning stove and outside, a patio with furniture and a barbecue. Across the stream, a bridge leads up a path to another seating area overlooking the brook and there is off road parking for three years.


What a beautiful part of Wales - no need to get the car out - just put boots on and walk from the farm - plenty of marked routes just outside the farmhouse. Very isolated really - be great to get stuck in the snow here - very cosy with plenty of wood available for wood burners . Kitchen facilities excellent - nothing needed .

Fantastic cottage in a fantastic location
After looking for a cottage with some character, I came across this property. What a find that was. This grade 2 listed cottage set in outstanding countryside is wonderful. It has been refurbished to a very high standard complementing the history of the building with original features but with some modern twists such as the kitchen which has everything you require. We arrived to a welcoming tray of home made scones, and a bottle of wine. Our dog Millie also had a welcoming box with a bag of treats! The cottage has been in the owners family for many generations with some delightful pictures of the property as it was many years ago. Although there were 6 adults and 1 dog in our group, this cottage sleeps 8 with 1 king sized room with en suite comprising of a bath and loo, 1 double room and 2 rooms with twin beds. A family bathroom with bath/shower. Downstairs at the entrance is a tiled boot room which has a washing/tumble dryer, fridge (for beers) and a freezer. It also has a toilet and shower, ideal for dirty dogs from an enjoyable walk! Entering the kitchen you will find a wonderful snug wood burner fireplace. The kitchen has a fridge, dishwasher, microwave, an electric oven and hob and it is fully equipped with every kitchen aid you wish to need. It has a table which seats 8. The hallway leading to the stairs has many books and games for your enjoyment. The lounge has another wood burner and is furnished lovely. Also some more games and books for your leisure. The garden is beautiful, on a hill with a stunning stream going through. Many levels of seating areas including a wooden swing. A games room with many garden games inside, also has a table football and a darts board. We visited the Devils bridge waterfalls and the 3 bridges which were wonderful which also included a fitness workout due to the many steps to get there. Worth it though! This is only 25 mins by car. A stream train ends up here from Aberystwyth which we also went on. Great viewing. We visited many beaches along the Cardigan area which were stunning and only around an hours drive. With so many places on the doorstep of the cottage to visit and the stunning cottage itself, you will have a great holiday here, so much so, we are planing a second holiday here, to which we have never wanted to do before. It was great meeting Jim, (the owner) and his trusty dogs who gave us a warm welcome. You should be proud of such a wonderful place you have here. Wifi is very intermittent so I had to talk with the family but that was ok!

What a beautiful cottage! We stayed in the cottage for a week at the start of August for a family holiday and had a wonderful time! When we arrived we had been left a welcome gift of home made scones and cakes (both of which were delicious) and tea and coffee which was amazing after the long drive there. The grounds were STUNNING, what a beautiful area and it was lovely watching the local Red Kites flying around in the evening. Inside the cottage it was clean, well equipped and beautifully decorated. The owner Jim was also very friendly and we would certainly reccommend a stay in this beautiful cottage!

A well equipped cottage and a stunning location.

The grounds of the cottage were stunning, with a lovely stream and bridge, games room and bench swing. The cottage itself was immaculate, we were made to feel really welcome. Lots of small touches made this very special place.
