Min yr Afon
Min yr Afon is the kind of place that most befits our Rare Hideaway branding. Its other worldliness envelopes you, the peaceful setting is completely immersive, the stream rushing by takes the outside world along with it, relaxation is guaranteed.
Whilst it is only a few minutes from the bright architecture, bustling boutiques, and gastropubs of trendy Aberaeron, this painstakingly restored cottage ‘cwtches’ into a sweeping bend of a tributary of the River Aeron. It’s at the end of a reassuringly bumpy track and couldn’t be more perfectly secluded.
The careful renovation has added modern comforts and bang on trend interiors without stripping away the atmosphere and history that lives in a beautiful period building. The hefty beams, reclaimed stone floor finishes and inglenook fireplace that hosts the woodburning stove, all remain, and blend well into the contemporary colour palette. The view from the airy kitchen diner across the river meadows to majestic Llanerchaeron National Trust House is framed by expansive bifolds, bringing the evocative sound of bird song and the gentle rustle of trees inside.
The bedrooms retain the original features, including the old beams, but are furnished by merging antique pieces with contemporary style. The family bathroom, on the ground floor, has quality fittings and a soaking tub, ideal preparation for an alfresco evening supper in the spacious garden. There’s plenty of cosy corners to swallow up to four guests but works equally well as a couple’s bolt hole.
Enviably well located close to the stunning beaches of this rugged section of the West Wales coastline where dolphin-spotting boat trips, cosy pub lunches and cappuccino’s whilst watching the watery world go by on the harbour wall at New Quay are all must do’s, it is still all too tempting to stay put, dive into a good book, and make the very most of Min yr Afon’s remarkable ability to re-charge the batteries, make memories and reconnect you with nature.
