    Hoseasons "A wing of a house looking over the Melindwr Valley with lovely walks from the door. Near Aberystwyth and Cardigan Bay. \nGround Floor\nKitchendining room \nWith electric cooker microwave fridge and coffee machine.\nSteep open-tread stairs to...\n\nFirst Floor\nLiving room \nWith TV DVD player CD player and a selection of books.\n\nBedroom \nWith double bed.\n\nBathroom \nWith shower over bath and toilet.Oil central heating electricity bed linen and Wi-Fi included. Utility room with washing machine shared with owner. Lawned garden with patio and garden furniture. Bike store. Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking.Lying in the heart of Red Kite Country and the scenery for TV’s ’Hinterland’ series this elevated self-contained wing of the owner’s family house was once the Goginan silver - lead mine captain’s residence. This delightful property overlooks an acre of delightfully landscaped gardens full of interesting trees shrubs spaces and quirky features. To the rear lies accessible woodland whilst its elevated aspect looks south across the beautiful Melindwr Valley to the village of Goginan itself. The Melindwr is a tributary of the stunningly scenic Rheidol famous for one of ’the Great Little Trains of Wales’ that runs from Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge.\nFrom the property there to an impressive network of woodland ridge top and valley walks with a variety of grades and distances catering for all. Locally 2½ miles away is Visit Wales’ gold award-winning Bwlch Nant yr Arian Forest Visitor Centre the county’s premier tourist attraction offering dramatic ridge-top panoramas including down into the Melindwr Valley and beyond to Aberystwyth and the sea. Viewing the daily feeding of the numerous red kites from down at the lakeside or up on the cafe’s veranda is a stunning spectacle. For mountain bikers provision includes a skills park two single-track routes 18km and 10km and a high-level 35km wilderness loop. Apart from the centre’s all-ability lakeside path way-marked footpath trails emanate out from the centre including access past as many as six upland lakes that once supplied water to the local mines.\nWhilst enjoying a lovely rural location the property is only 8 miles from Aberystwyth - ’the spiritual capital of Wales’ whose attractions include the extensive seaside promenade with at one end the short funicular railway up to Constitution Hill and at the other the harbour and confluence of the Rheidol and Ystwyth rivers. In between lie the ancient castle ruins the magnificent old college buildings and the Victorian pier renowned for its roosting starlings. Don’t miss out on the delightful sunsets The National Library the University Arts Centre and Ceredigion Museum offer cultural interest and entertainment. A full range of amenities including numerous coffee shops cafés restaurants and hostelries are on offer in this cosmopolitan university and tourist town.\nCeredigion’s contrasting beaches are a major attraction but activities such as golf horse riding and fishing are all on offer locally. If your passion is for walking then the choice of paths will not disappoint. Of particular note are the historic trails through the ’picturesque landscape’ of Thomas Johns’ Hafod climbing Pumlumon - Mid-Wales’ highest peak at 752m 2467ft and walking sections of the Wales Coast Path from Borth to Cardigan. The area abounds with wildlife but nature lovers will especially enjoy sites such as the RSPB’s Ynyshir the Dyfi Osprey Project and national nature reserves such as the sand-dunes at Ynyslas Borth the sessile oak woods of the Rheidol and the raised bogs at Cors Caron Tregaron and Cors Fochno Borth. Visiting the popular small sea-side towns of Aberaeron Newquay and Aberporth and nearby small coves is a delight and boat trips offer the opportunity to enjoy watching Cardigan Bay’s resident dolphins. Snowdonia is only 20 miles to the north and a scenic trip via Machynlleth Cadair Idris and Aberdyfi is well worth undertaking. Likewise a trip over the wilderness mountain road to the iconic Elan Valley reservoirs is a memorable experience. Shop 2 miles and pub serving food ½ mile." https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/105/840/105851.jpg 1424

    We have stayed in this flat many times so obviously we like it very much. It is in a beautiful location, very peaceful, comfortable and spotlessly clean. It is thoughtfully equipped and furnished. The owners are delightful.

    Overall rating 9/10, this is my absolute highest score I give anyone unless it's a restaurant or along those lines so 9 for this place means absolutely brilliant. Comfort and equipment was a 9 because I absolutely loved the chairs in the sitting area and your board full of up to date leaflets was utterly brilliant. I've never seen anything quite like that and I think it's a brilliant way to showcase what's around. Location: fantastic. My partner and I was looking for a secluded and remote spot and frankly it's exactly that. Although if you're travelling for the first time I suggest doing it whilst it's not pitch black as the country lanes are narrow and it's better all round if you go when you are at least able to see the road. Cleanliness, there were a few niggles here and there but overall very clean and very satisfied. Local amenities, the nearest shops is in Aberystwyth about 30 mins give or take. But of course if you're coming to this spot, you won't find much without needing to drive the car. There are fields upon fields where there is peace and quiet and beautiful for walking dogs, as this is a dog friendly accommodation. Value for money, for what you get at such a reasonable price is awesome. We will be booking to come back in the future, especially to get the much needed peace and quiet. All in all absolutely loved this place, definitely will be kept in our favourite places to visit again.

    Comfortable cottage just off the beaten track in a quiet location. Central to many local attractions in the area within a short driving distance. Friendly owners very welcoming and willing to help with recommendations of places to eat.
