Brynhyfryd Cottage is a cosy, traditional detached cottage peacefully situated near the historic village of Caio on the borders of Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion. Set on the owners’ smallholding, this former farm-workers’ dwelling has been restored sympathetically, retaining features such as the original fireplace with bread oven.

The Dolaucothi Gold Mines, which date back to Roman times, are within walking distance.
