Cuddfan is a cosy, stylish architect-designed barn conversion for two in the hills above the delightful Aeron Valley, 6 miles from the seaside towns of New Quay and Aberaeron. A former spiritual retreat, the farm is now restored and managed as an exemplar of sustainability with wind turbine and ground-source heat pumps.
Cuddfan is a snug cottage for two, sensitively inserted into the rough stonework of a cart house and stables. The carefully crafted timber interior is comfortable and imaginatively designed. The snug is open to the exposed A-frame roof beams and has a woodburner for added cosiness. Sleeping is above, in what was the hayloft, up steep stairs. The lavatory with wet room shower is an immaculate pod. Local natural materials – stone, oak, ash, douglas fir and lime are dominant. See larger photos of this sustainable West Wales Holiday Cottage
