    Gerlan is a quaint town cottage built around 1866 sometime after the railway arrived in Tregaron. Tregaron was once a very strategic point for taking animals from the farms in West Wales to markets in England. Before the railways, it is said around 30,000 animals were escorted overland on drovers’ roads through the Cambrian Mountains. The trading importance of the town was such that it even had its own ’Black Sheep Aberystwyth and Tregaron Bank’, and the number of black sheep engraved on the bank notes issued indicated the number of pounds value.

    The Cambrian Mountains are one of the few remote areas left in southern Britain, and Tregaron lies close to this wild open wilderness. Although there are only few roads across the mountains they are acknowledged as some of the most scenic routes in Britain and walkers and cyclists revel in the peaceful solitude.

    The current owners of Gerlan have lovingly restored the property so that it now provides the perfect base to discover this wonderful part of Wales. The ground floor has a country kitchen leading into a spacious living and dining room, and an attractive stone fireplace with a wood burning stove so that you can be cosy year round. A ground floor bathroom and two first floor bedrooms complete this quaint cottage. 100 yards from the cottage, in an elevated position, there is a natural lawned garden, with a bench, providing an ideal spot to sit and enjoy a quiet drink and appreciate the lovely views over the town, and to the hills beyond.

    Today, historic Tregaron is a ’Walkers are Welcome’ town, and the annual walking festival held in May is a firm favourite on the walking calendar. Competitors and visitors come from all over the UK and Ireland for the annual horse trotting and carriage racing too. It is also the home of the Welsh Gold Centre, selling Celtic inspired designs.

    The town is small and has a friendly village atmosphere. A short stroll will bring you to independent shops, and on the square, the award winning pub and restaurant, the renowned Talbot Hotel. Also standing proudly on the square is a wood carving depicting Twm Siôn Cati, the legendary 17th-century ’Robin Hood of Wales’ who is said to have used his wit and bravery to outsmart gentry and crooks alike.

    Cors Caron, or Tregaron Bog as it is also known, is the largest raised bog in Britain and lies just outside the town. It is a peat bog of international importance and a nature reserve since 1955. It provides a habitat to very rare flora and fauna and is fantastic for wildlife spotting, including buzzards, peregrine falcons, harriers and iconic red kites.

    The beautiful Ceredigion coastline can be reached within 30 minutes drive and offers lovely beaches (many dog friendly year round), and interesting towns and villages to visit. The university town of Aberystwyth has a historic castle, long promenade and pier, plus it is home to one of Wales’ most picturesque steam train journeys through the valley over to Devil’s Bridge. Georgian harbour town Aberaeron, and quaint fishing town of New Quay, are also great places to go for restaurants, shops, boat rides and dolphin spotting.

    Gerlan sits across a private no-through lane from property reference UK6062 Hen Efail, and they can be booked together to accommodate larger parties. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
