Sleeping six people in three bedrooms, this detached cottage is in an idyllic streamside location ten miles from Cardigan.

Star Mill Cottage is a detached cottage in the countryside ten miles from Cardigan. The cottage has a king-size double on a mezzanine level, a double room and a twin room. There are two bathrooms, one on the ground floor. The kitchen has a stable door, and the sitting room has two sitting areas, a dining area, sofabed and woodburner in Inglenook fireplace. Outside is roadside parking and a rear patio with furniture. Star Mill Cottage is an ideal family base for this part of lovely Wales.


The cottage itself is ok.....we found it to be very dusty and a little unclean on arrival. Miles from any main roads so don't expect a quick journey to anywhere! Well equipped but has to clean quite a lot of plates and pans etc before we used any of them. We know it's a cottage in the country bit there were cobwebs and dead spiders everywhere which hasn't been there just a few days or weeks if you know what I mean. The owners are lovely and very helpful ...i just think they need to get on top of their cleaner. Couch in tv lounge area is awful.....so uncomfortable that it was hard work to relax of an evening. Last thing to mention is that all the duvets and most of the pillows are feather which set off my sons allergy (unless it was the dust)...so we had to come home 3 days early. If you are looking for a retreat in the middle of nowhere and not looking for a luxury cottage then this is fine.

WHAT AN AMAZING COTTAGE. We have had just the best time here this past week and can honestly say we are truly sad to be leaving, our children especially. They have settled in so well and have slept beautifully every night which is unusual for them in unfamiliar surroundings. Every need was catered for, and much much more. On arrival we were greeted by the wonderful smell of the log fire. The whole place was beautifully clean and the owners even left a bottle of wine and choccys for our arrival which was such a lovely personal touch. Bob the owner phoned us a couple of hours after we landed to make sure all was to our satisfaction, which it truly was!! The beds are honestly the comfiest beds IN THE WORLD!! Never slept so well. There is plenty to see if you travel by car, highly recommend Poppit Sands and Cardigan Bay, lots of shops and places to eat. Manor Hall Farm was a great day out especially for children. We had a problem with our exhaust and the local garage (Garej Wyn) fitted us in that very day which was fantastic so must recommend them for anyone else in a similar position. My brother who stayed with us also had a more serious problem with his car and they fixed his at the drop of a hat also. Brilliant guys down there! Star is a picturesque place to stay and the locals seem dead friendly. There's very little traffic going by and the sound of the stream flowing by is so soothing (I think the noise helped my children sleep to be honest.) There are lots of birds feeding in the garden which is also very relaxing to watch, the kids enjoyed topping up the bird feeders in "The Jungle" as they called the garden. I could go on and on about this cottage but I won't bore everybody, in a nutshell we highly recommend this beautiful building to anyone looking for a long/short family/couples holiday/break away. Its gorgeous. In and out! We wouldn't hesitate to stay again or recommend to friends and family. We will take some lovely memories home with us.

A cosy cottage in a lovely quiet location
A very well equipped cottage in a quiet location. Comfortable and warm on chilly days. A real home from home. Love the stream outside the back door. The surrounding countryside is beautiful with some lovely walks nearby including woods, hills, beaches and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. It is within easy reach of some pretty villages and small towns and most things can be bought in Cardigan. Highly recommended.

A stunning, cosy cottage, equipped with everything you need for the perfect getaway.
Have recently spent an idyllic week staying at Star Mill Cottage.It is set in a beautiful part of West Wales, within easy driving distance of lots of wonderful, dog friendly beaches and interesting towns and villages. The owners have created a wonderful holiday home decorated and finished to a high standard with extra details that just make it even more special.They really have thought of everything.We especially loved sitting by the log burner relaxing and chatting in the evening after a busy day out and about.Would highly recommend this cottage and we hope to return for another visit next year.
