Detached farmhouse with enclosed garden in an elevated position commanding stunning countryside views. Perfect for family and friends to explore Aberystwyth and the coast and countryside of Ceredigion

Explore coast and countryside from this detached farmhouse just 3 miles from Aberystwyth. Set on a small working farm with cattle and sheep as neighbours and stunning rural views, it offers a welcome escape from the everyday for five guests. Create days to remember as you discover the watersports of the rugged Ceredigion coastline, stroll along the coastal path above or jump on the cliff railway before returning to the farmhouse for a BBQ on the lawn.

With original features, spacious rooms and home comforts, this modernised farmhouse is the perfect base to return to after busy days spent exploring West Wales. Prepare family feasts in the bright kitchen area, which overlooks the lawn, before heading for the dining room where competitive types will enjoy a game on the foosball table. Lose yourself in a good book in the sunny conservatory, which opens onto the lawn, or snuggle up on the sofa in the lounge. After a long walk or a dip in the bracing sea, warm up with a soak in the bath before later retiring to one of the three charming bedrooms. Outside, the enclosed lawn with wonderful rural views is a safe space for dogs and children to use up the last of their energy.

Just off the main coastal route, this delightful farmhouse offers easy access to the area’s most popular locations. Right at the heart of the Ceredigion coastline, Aberystwyth boasts a vibrant town centre with a host of independent shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants and galleries. Once you’ve stocked up on supplies, head down to the seafront for a walk along the Victorian promenade or a splash in the surf on North Beach followed by a delicious picnic. Step back in time to the Edwardian era with a trip on the Vale of Rheidol Railway (3 miles) or discover the world-famous Devil’s Bridge Falls, just 13 miles away.

We had a fabulous holiday. The chocalate cake on arrival was delicious and the friendly welcome was so nice as were all the other extras, fruit in the fruit, coffee from Aberystwth, milk in the fridge, the toiletries in the bathrooms and plenty of toilet roll too.

We were made to feel really welcome. The cottage had been completely sanitised and was perfectly clean. We had everything we needed for a family including a 5yr old and 1yr old twins. Lisa and Phil were both approachable and made our 5yr olds holiday when they gave her sheep nuts and chicken feed for the animals. There is lots to do local and at chRead moreeap prices! Whilst the property is near a main road I didnt feel this took away from our experience and we found beautiful walks locally for our dog Hide

Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. Everything you need is a drive away and the cottage has everything needed for a relaxing break. The owner is also amazing and we really enjoyed our chats with her. We will hopefully go back one day.

Despite mixed weather, we spent a very happy holiday at Chancery Cottage. Mr & Mrs Bumford were attentive hosts and provided not only a delicious chocolate cake but an apple crumble and a box of sheep nuts so we could hand-feed the Texels. The oak furniture was good and the equipment was excellent. We all slept well and were sorry to leave.

A very convenient cottage for 4 or 5 people - 1 double, 1 twin and 1 single bedrooms. Well furnished and equipped, wooden floors downstairs are a great idea, and we loved the "sheep" in the living room! Small garden with picnic table, washing line, and good view over the valley. Pity that the footpath across the road to the coast couldn't be found.

Mrs Bumford was very welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed the barbecue and found the beds and all the rooms comfortable. The chief problem is that the cottage is literally ON the main road, which is very busy from early to late. The noise is screened by triple glazing in the bedrooms, but none of them look out on the fine view eastwards. Also you cannRead moreot take a walk from the cottage, since there is enclosed farmland on one side and the narrow, busy, fast road with no pavements on the other. Hide
