Special Offers

At Llaethdy Rachel (Rachel’s Dairy) you can enjoy absolute peace and seclusion, with outstanding views over unspoilt Welsh hills. The cottage is a converted milking parlour set in the heart of Rhydafallen, a 28 acre smallholding. Designed, both inside and out, with your comfort in mind, the cottage has two en suite bedrooms, underfloor heating throughout and for those cooler evenings or winter breaks you have the added comfort of the wood-burning stove as you relax on comfy reclining leather sofas.

On the south-facing decking you can dine alfresco or simply relax in private, with just the sounds of nature for company as you look out over the Aeron Valley, a designated Special Landscape Area.

Llaethdy Rachel is ideally placed for exploring Ceredigion, with Cardigan Bay, the Ceredigion Coast Path and the pretty harbour town of Aberaeron just a fifteen-minute drive away. New Quay, Llangrannog and Aberystwyth, each with their own characteristic charm, are also within easy reach. For those who enjoy walking Llaethdy Rachel is also close to the Cambrian Mountains and has a collection of walking guides and Ordnance Survey maps to help you discover hidden gems off the beaten track, as well as the breathtaking views along the coast path. There are two golf clubs within easy reach, and for anglers, in addition to sea fishing, there are freshwater fisheries and rivers nearby.
