This cosy cottage is perfect for young families that want to get out and explore the countryside in a wildlife-rich part of West Wales.

This charming property is ideal for families that love the great outdoors. Set in the Wildlife Trust’s Teifi Marsh Nature Reserve, you’ve got the countryside on the doorstep. The children will love playing in the Cherry Tree Adventure Park, discovering the Willow Maze and even meeting the resident water buffalo. The on-site restaurant is worth a visit to for hearty meals, but there are also plenty of cafes, pubs and restaurants in Cardigan (4.5 miles by road; 1.5 miles on foot via a footpath). While you’re there, take a wander around Cardigan Castle and the stunning grounds. Head up to the Poppit Sands Beach (7 miles) which is also the start of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and is ideal for dog walking.

Head into the open-plan living area where comfortable sofas and a TV for playing DVDs is the perfect place to snuggle up in in the evenings. You’ll find exposed stone walls throughout the property which add to the country-style feel of the cottage. The kitchen area has a farmhouse style and contains everything you need to cook up a storm, including an electric hob and oven, fridge and microwave. The main bedroom is a cosy double with a bright and airy feel, while the second bedroom is a bunk room so is perfect for kids. Out of both bedroom windows, you may spot some wildlife in the plants and trees directly outside. The bathroom completes the property and has a shower over a ¾-size bath with calming neutral-coloured tiles.

Outside, there’s a small garden with wild shrubs and a garden bench. There’s also off-road parking available.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

While the cottage is small and basic it has everything needed for a short break with a brilliant location in the heart of the Teifi Marsh Nature reserve. Friendly and helpful staff at the visitor centre. Many woodland birds by the cottage and around the reserve, kingfishers, goosander, water rail etc.
