  • This was the perfect getaway for a relaxing break. Eleri was so welcoming and was on hand if we needed her.

I would recommend this to anyone. Laura J, 26 March 2016
  • Lovely place, just as described. Would thoroughly recommend for a relaxing break away from it all. The hot tub was a great bit of added luxury. Rachel catt , 10 January 2016
  • Rhiwson Uchaf is a fantastic cottage in a perfect location. We really enjoyed our stay with the hot tub being a real bonus. The arrangements were seamless and the owner couldn't have been more helpful. We will definitely be going back again. Tim W, 12 October 2015
  • We loved our stay at Rhiwson Uchaf - it was everything we expected and more. The Rayburn was a particular hit with all of us and of course the Jacuzzi!!. Thank you for being so welcoming and relaxed. It put us at ease straight away. We thoroughly enjoyed our walk around Aberaeron and the Dolphin spotting at New Quay. Also the biking in Brechfa Forest. It felt like a home from home (if our homes were this awesome!) We leave rejuvenated although somewhat hungover. Much love, the 'youngish' group from Shropshire (and honorary Angelesy girl) Nathan,Sam,Kate, Paul, Jim and Char 14 September 2015

  • Superb place to stay. Fantastic welcome and beautiful accomadation. The real winner for us was the stunning outdoor space. Closed in for our dog to run around while we relaxed in the big hot tub. We had an amazing time and will be back. Mark c s coles , 27 May 2015
  • Lovely cottage, we really enjoyed our stay here. Its well kept, very clean, warm & welcoming. Its great to be in the middle of nowhere yet only 10 to 20mins in the car away from lots of places. The owners were really nice when we had a last minute request too. We'll defo be booking again! Karl O, 27 May 2015
  • "5 months since our last visit and just as good as we remembered. Brought our son this time. Visited Lampeter, Poppit sands, New Quay and enjoyed a walk at Hafod near Devil's Bridge. Fantastic bacon baps at little cafe opposite Devil Bridge Station after 2 hr walk. Weather fantastic - going home with a sun-tan! Hubby enjoyed cooking on the Rayburn and walking up the hill each morning kept me and son fit!" ~ Phil, Allyson, Stephen and Duffy the dog. stayed March 1 July 2014
  • "It has been a long trip from our home in Germany but worth every kilometre for this wonderfully renovated and welcoming cottage. Every day we awoke with that wonderful feeling of peace and freedom. We hope to come back again" ~ Martina, Eugin and family from Spindel, Germany 1 July 2014
  • "What a fabulous place! We don't want to go home. We have been very lucky with the glorious sunshine and have enjoyed exploring the little towns and beautiful beaches -Three Cliffs Bay on the Gower and Poppit sands just west of Cardigan are highly recommended!. This is our fourth stay with Under The Thatch and I cannot find any other agent that beats the properties. After a stressful few months at work this has been the perfect retreat- feel very content and relaxed 'UTT' our little secret!" ~ Sarah, Tony and Kira - stayed April 1 July 2014

Accommodation

'Rhiwson is an historic longhouse in the Teifi valley, west Wales. The Grade II-listed house has a thatch and tin roof, a four-poster bed, a garden with a millpond and an orchard. There are no roads in sight and guests have free access to 180 acres of pasture.' The Guardian, selecting it as the best location for a family Christmas.

An historic Welsh longhouse (c.1710) with wonderful views across the Teifi valley and 180 acres of pasture over which you have free access. Great for two couples/ family groups as it splits internally into two wings. The ancient thatched roof has been preserved under a protective layer of tin since the 1920s, and Rhiwson is now Grade II* Listed for its historic interest. Inside has recently been modernised in a comfortable modern farmhouse style. No roads in sight or earshot, and although the property manager lives in the converted stabling across the farmyard your windows virtually all face the other way across open fields. See larger photos of this Welsh longhouse or an aerial photo. Independent 5* review.
