Delightful, comfortable cottage in beautiful surroundings
We loved our week at Ty Cariad. The weather might have been disappointing, but the cottage was welcoming, cosy and spacious.
The whole house has been renovated, furnished and decorated beautifully. It’s clear that a lot of love and hard work have gone into making this a special retreat for the owners, and we felt that we were in a proper home rather than just a “holiday rental”. All the little details that make life more comfortable have been thought of. I like to cook, and the kitchen, as well as being an attractive room, was really well equipped – quite a contrast from the battered pans and blunt knives I’ve encountered on many holidays. Other daily activities – taking a shower in the sumptuous bathroom, eating breakfast in the stylish dining-room – were made that bit more enjoyable by being in such a lovely space.
The cottage is situated high up with distant hill views both from the house itself and the garden (I won’t forget watching the mist drifting up the valley in the early mornings). What was also important to us is that the house and garden are very quiet, private and not overlooked.
When you finally drag yourself away from the house, there are amazing landscapes at every turn, and plenty of places for walking - including waterfalls, mountains and reservoirs. There's lots of information (and some interesting books) at the house. Also worth a visit is the lovely (and lively) university town of Aberystwyth, with some great pubs and restaurants (I recommend the Ship & Castle pub for delicious ales and craft beer, and the Spanish deli and tapas bar, Ultracomida, for excellent food and wine).
Cozy Cottage in Wales
The Cottage was very cozy. We had more than enough space. There was everything in it we need. The region is very good for hiking. The garden is beautiful. In the little village is a very nice Pub with very friendly owners and a little Cafe with delicous homemade cakes. All conversations with Julie Shackson where very friendly.
Thank you for visiting Gregor! We are delight you enjoyed your stay.
A wonderful quirky cottage in a little known or explored part of Wales
We had an absolutely lovely week at Ty Cariad! The cottage is delightful and in such a beautiful setting, with super views, and provided everything we needed for a relaxing week. We had relaxing evenings playing backgammon after dinner, and our daughter loved her little room and an extremely snuggly bed. We really didn’t want to leave, and it was with a heavy heart that we closed the door and departed.
We had wonderful walks and cycle rides throughout the Hafod Estate – I think we just about covered all tracks, although on one morning we were on the receiving end of some rather wet climatic conditions! We also benefited from not many other tourists in the area so the trails were practically empty! The weather generally throughout the week was sunny and hot and we benefited greatly. In fact, we suffered slightly with sunburn after a day on Borth beach! We visited Devil’s Bridge falls, the Rheidol railway, and the old silver lead mine at Ponterwyd (which is very well presented and acted). The mine was interesting to myself and my wife as we both graduated in geology.
The area offers up so much in the way of the natural world, which for our daughter was certainly an education, and extended her exposure to the area having spent the previous week in the Elan Valley with her school. We were fortunate to see many different creatures including various beetles, butterflies, birds including grey wagtails, dippers, firecrests, tree warblers, hen harriers, and obviously the ubiquitous red kites. We were also very lucky to come across a slow worm – which is quite rare these days!
All in all we had a wonderful week at Ty Cariad, and would certainly welcome an opportunity to return in the future. We take away many special memories.
Thank you so much Julie, who is a very attentive owner who goes the extra mile to ensure her guests are looked after.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. It makes the hard work we put into Ty Cariad seem well worth it when we read about how our guests enjoy it!
Lovely cottage, great for relaxing, lots nearby.
We had a great time at Ty Cariad. The cottage itself is up a quiet (and steep!) backroad in Pont-Rhyd-Y-Groes, with offroad parking nearby. The Miner's Arms pub in the village serves a decent Sunday lunch -- we didn't need to book, but probably best to check in advance.
Tesco deliver to the cottage, so there's no need to do a "big shop" and take it with you by car. The fridge is a good size, so it's possible to stock up. The cooker has a big gas hob which was suitable for everything we wanted to eat. There's also a small but very efficient dishwasher, and a washer/dryer. The internet connection is excellent, and the instructions to go with the Sky TV are clear and simple (this is from someone who has never used Sky TV before).
The garden of the cottage is lovely -- there's no need to travel to see red kites, as we had two or three overhead throughout the day, particularly in the late afternoon between 4 and 6pm. Fans of frogs will find one in the rockery near the outside seating. I also saw a slow worm (a type of lizard) for the first time in my life. We were lucky with the weather (one rainy day and one foggy day out of a ten-day stay), but there's enough to do in the cottage and the immediate surrounding area if you aren't as fortunate.
There's lots to see and do nearby. We went on the steam railway from Devil's Bridge to Aberystwyth, which is recommended, as is a visit to the nature reserve at Cors Caron on the road to Tregaron. Aberystwyth isn't a great place to park, so be prepared to search for a parking space. The scenic drive along the A4120 (just drive towards Devil's Bridge and turn left instead of right) is well worth it.
Tregaron itself is worth a visit -- just keep going on the B4343. There's a Spar shop for bits & pieces and also a kite centre where you can learn about the red kites and also a bit about the village and surrounding area, as well as a large shop and gallery selling local arts and crafts. Incidentally, there's also a bottle bank for recycling on the B4343 as you head towards Tregaron.
So all in all, we had a lovely stay, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ty Cariad to anyone who wants a relaxing break in a beautiful part of Wales.
