Sleeping four people, the cottage has a double bedroom, a twin room and a family bathroom. It also contains a fitted kitchen, a sitting room with a woodburner and a conservatory.

Outside is a small enclosed garden and off road parking. Set in fabulous countryside just four miles from the coast, Maesgwyn is a lovely family-friendly holiday cottage all year round.


Cosy traditional cottage
We stayed for a week in October 2022. The cottage was clean and comfortable with plenty of hot water and a well-equipped kitchen, and has lots of traditional charm. The conservatory is lovely for catching the last of the autumn sunshine and doing a bit of birdwatching from the comfort of the sofa. The owners live next door and were friendly and helpful. Great for animal lovers as there are dogs, ponies and sheep around. The location is very peaceful and secluded, and there are lots of walks to do straight from the cottage. It's about 45 ? 60 mins drive to the more touristy bits in the south of Pembrokeshire but the roads are beautiful, and Cardigan and St Dogmaels are only 10 mins away for local shops, restaurants etc.

Idilic - Tranquil - Haven
Visiting family with my own family and 2 dogs. Fran and Chez very welcoming and nothing too much trouble. Plenty of space indoors with a box full of games, dvds and jigsaws to occupy yourself with. Tea, coffee and milk awaiting your arrival along with fresh Sunfowers as well as Welsh cakes. 9 Miles of County side to walk and explore from the farm without having to drive anywhere. Dogs must be kept of lead as plenty of live stock about. Extra large enclosed garden - both kids and dogs loved the space out there. Plenty to do in area. Beaches, Caldey island, little towns and villages to explore and find a few bargains, caste ruins, wildlife trusts, parks, indoor play areas for kids when it's raining. Typical Wales mind - wellies and brollies needed Sun / Mon, sun hats and suncream needed Tues / Wed. Thankyou once again for sharing your wonderful cottage... Highly highly recommend.

Wonderful escape
Ches and Fran were wonderful hosts and very welcoming. Relaxed and tranquil atmosphere. Ideal rural escape. A great place to get away from it all and an ideal base for lots of walking and plenty of local beaches with Poppit Sands being a favourite and dog friendly all year round. This dog friendly cottage is well equipped whilst being cosy and characterful. Would definitely recommend to anyone who needs some time out. Take a walk along the river from Cilgerran to the next village along, cross over the bridge and a 100 yards up the hill is a dog friendly hotel which is ideal for lunch.

Perfect Winter Break
Have stayed here before and will keep coming back thanks to the welcome of the owners. Situated in a cottage adjacent to the owners home nothing is too much trouble and we couldn't have been made more welcome. The cottage has everything we needed for a peaceful get away and is well situated for Poppit Sands, Cardigan and many other attractions. For us the walking is great with numerous footpaths within very easy reach. Highly recommended and we'll be back again soon.
