about the property

A stylish apartment within a historic country house in the heart of scenic West Wales in the University town of Lampeter. Just 15 minutes from the Ceredigion, Cardiganshire coast.

Cartref Cayo holiday apartment offers a spacious and comfortable stay in the luxury of a historical country house setting: the house was home to the co-founder and leader of the Free Wales Army, William Julian Cayo-Evans (1937-1995). The accommodation has been thoughtfully designed to retain the character of the mansion whilst at the same time providing all the mod cons for a comfortable stay. 

The apartment will comfortably host 4-6 guests, with extra beds to accommodate a maximum of 8. All rooms are beautifully styled and equipped to ensure guests feel at home. The two large bedrooms boast stunning views of the Welsh hills.

The house itself is surrounded by 36 acres of farmland that guests can explore. You are welcome to pet the horses or feed the peacocks: great fun! You will have a private garden and patio area with BBQ, and fire pit is also provided for al fresco dining in the warmer months.

You will also be able to purchase a selection of homegrown vegetables and freshly laid free range eggs from our hens during the summer months.
