Like many successful, star-rated self-catering properties, Troedyrhiw’s story is one of a labour of love. Former derelict farm buildings have been sympathetically transformed into five immaculate cottages sitting side-by-side around a courtyard.
It was a case of rescue as well as rebuild: as much of the original character, stone walls and timbers as possible have been retained. There are five cottages in all – The Coach House, Gorse Cottage, Oak Cottage, The Stables and The Granary. 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 it 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. So it’s very child-friendly (the kids also love the farm animals on this 13-acre smallholding, including miniature Shetland ponies, pigs, ducks and chickens). There’s 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.
