Immersed in the gentle rural landscape of West Wales, Foel is the ideal retreat for relaxing holidays or weekends in a traditional Edwardian light and cosy cottage. Less than 10 minutes drive from the beach in the charming village of Llangrannog on Cardigan Bay, the cottage is set on its own along a quiet lane with unobstructed views across the countryside and dark night skies.
It is a perfect location for exploring stunning coast path, sandy beaches or reading a book by the fire. The Cardi Bach coastal shuttle bus passes the house twice daily in season, so you can walk stages of the 63 mile long Ceredigion Coast Path without having to double back each day. Other activities include dolphin watching, kayaking, coasteering, golf, horse riding and some of the best river fishing in UK.
Foel is a light, spacious yet cosy house that mixes traditional and contemporary décor to provide comfortable spaces for families or small groups, hikers and outdoor adventurers in all weathers and seasons. There is convenient access to two excellent pubs, farm shops, supermarket and friendly cafes. Popular day trips include the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, boat trips to spot dolphins, porpoises and seals, the foodie town of Newport, riding the heritage steam railway to Devil’s Bridge, exploring the National Botanic Garden of Wales and the University town of Aberystwyth.
