Approached down a long private drive, Wisteria Cottage is the epitome of style and comfort. It has been lovingly furnished by the owners who live in the adjacent house set within 3½ acres of grounds. The main house was built in the 1800s by the Lisburn Mine Company and went on to be the local doctor’s house and surgery in the 1900s. What was once the stable and hayloft has now become a delightful detached holiday cottage, secluded from the owners’ home and with every contemporary comfort. The ground floor is spacious and comfortable with a wood burner for cosy evenings in the cottage. Both the first floor bedrooms have an en-suite, with a walk-in shower. The cottage lies within its own fully enclosed area, ideal dogs and children or just somewhere to escape to - and you will find the added luxurious touch of a hot tub to enjoy.
There is walking close by in the north part of the Ystwyth Valley, and the nearby Hafod Estate is a picturesque landscape occupying about 500 acres of this valley, where there are also numerous walks. There are many streams, waterfalls and rustic bridges to discover. At nearby Devils Bridge, first built by monks in the 11th century, you can see where various scenes from ‘Hinterland’ were filmed. From here you can take the Vale of Rheidol steam train (the line was opened in 1902), which meanders through the valley to the busy university town of Aberystwyth, with its Victorian promenade and pier. Wisteria Cottage is only 15 miles from Aberystwyth, and is a great base for visiting family and friends studying at university.
A 30-minute drive will bring you to the very attractive Ceredigion coastline with its long, sandy beaches, some of which allow pets all year round. Or why not visit Llanerchaeron, and elegant Georgian Villa, or the ruined abbey of Strata Florida, originally founded in 1164. Other places include the nearby butterfly farm and silver mine experience (open for 6 months of the year), which are geared towards families.
This culturally rich landscape of west Wales is an excellent base from which to explore and take part in activities such as long walks, mountain and forest biking, kayaking, horse riding or walking. Or you can just get away and relax and unwind in the tranquil surroundings of Wisteria Cottage, where you can put your feet up by the wood burner and relish the beautiful, peaceful surroundings. Café/shop and pub about 530 yards, restaurant 4½ miles.
