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 cottage offers guests the special opportunity to stay in the heart of the Teifi Marsh Nature Reserve, surrounded by its tranquillity and wildlife. Families will love getting away from it all in this traditional Welsh cottage in a quiet spot near the village of Cilgerran, particularly as it has the advantage of an on-site restaurant, nature trail and children’s adventure playground. There are also a wealth of walking trails that take you on a tour of the nature reserve’s highlights, or you can walk to bustling market town, Cardigan, which is 4.5 miles by road or 1.5 miles along the footpath.

This rustic cottage is bursting with original features that add to its rural charm. Stepping through the front door, you’ll find yourself in the open-plan living area, which is cosy and comfortable. The farmhouse-style kitchen has everything you’ll need to cook up a hearty breakfast or evening meal, whilst the sofas in the lounge are an ideal spot to watch a DVD on the TV. There are two bedrooms: a cosy double for the adults and a bunk-bed room for the children. Completing the accommodation is the compact bathroom with a shower over the ¾-size bath. Outside, the cottage has its own small garden with a bench for private dining.

With Teifi Marsh Nature Reserve’s on-site facilities, natural beauty and varied flora and fauna on your doorstep, you won’t need to travel far. However, historical Cardigan is a short walk away (1.5 miles) and has lots to discover, including its castle and gardens. You are also close to Wales’ west coast, including the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, so there are plenty of scenic walks, sandy beaches and secluded coves to discover, including Poppits Sands (7 miles) beach where the coast path starts.

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

A wonderfully simple little cottage in a cracking location. The nature reserve setting is fantastic, we enjoyed the wildlife, even spotting a kingfisher flying down the river at sunset. Lovely walking trails for all abilities around the reserve and a easy walk into Cardigan for all your shopping, eating and drinking needs. The Wildlife center proviRead moredes good teas, coffees, cakes and food when open and there is a lovely playground for the kids just on the doorstep. Hide

Nice, cosy cottage in a brilliant location. We really enjoyed our stay. We had sunny weather but quite cold in the last week of April. The heating system worked very well and we were always comfortable.
