CUSTOMER REVIEWS
  • We had a very relaxing week at Cuddfan - the location is perfect for exploring the area and the accommodation is comfortable, well appointed and distinctive. The owners are helpful but unobtrusive and there are plenty of grounds to wander in with chickens and geese roaming free. There is only one other self catering cottage plus an airstream caravan on site so you don't feel cramped. The cottage is quite spacious and comfortable, with a good standard to everything and nice little design details. We missed the lack of a proper settee (although there is one in the shared lounge area) and also found the bed a little small, but these things weren't a big deal. The cottage is well located for exploring the area, which has a huge amount of things to do, whatever direction you head in. We enjoyed Aberaeron, Aberporth and Mwnt. Janine E, 13 July 2015

  • 'We have had an absolutely wonderful time here. We love our little home and although we are really sad to leave we know we will be back. Beautiful area, lovely beaches, quaint little villages and towns.' M.D. Manchester 1 July 2014
  • 'Exactly what we expected and more. The perfect get away if only we could have stayed longer.' S. and O.H. London 1 July 2014
  • 'A beautiful and welcome retreat from the daily grind thank you.' J.S. London 1 July 2014
  • 'As an architect I enjoyed every little detail in the cottage, as a tourist well…..I love Wales, I love the countryside, I love the little towns next the Irish sea, just spectacular, thank you.' O.C. and S.K. Columbia 1 July 2014
  • ‘Probably the most relaxing weekend we’ve ever had – which is exactly what we needed….The meadow is teaming with wildlife, we’ve seen butterflies, bats, red kites and even a heron.’ 1 July 2014
  • 'Everything we’d hoped for. A most relaxing and tranquil place…Hot showers and generous tasty breakfast hamper to start the day.’ 1 July 2014
 
INFORMATION

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
