Bwthyn-y-Gorwel is a pretty detached stone-built cottage, adjacent to the owners' home in the quiet North Pembrokeshire village of Bwlchygroes, 8 miles south east of Cardigan, and 13 miles from the lovely West Wales beaches at Newport, Poppit Sands and Aberporth.
The quaint little cottage has some lovely original features, including a high beamed ceiling with former crog loft and a wood burning stove in the impressive stone and slate fireplace. The accommodation is all on one level with just a small step at each threshold. Heating is by the stove (logs are provided) and electric heaters.
Living Room: open plan, with large leather sofa in front of the wood burning stove, FreeSat TV and DVD player, radio/CD player and WiFi; fitted kitchen area with electric cooker (double oven and ceramic hob), fridge with 3* freezer compartment, microwave.
Access to the owners’ washing machine and additional freezer space can be arranged, if required.
Conservatory: with dining table and chairs.
Bedroom: comfortably furnished with a king size bed, full bedroom suite and door to the garden.
Bathroom: with electric shower over the bath, basin, WC, heated towel rail and illuminated mirror.
Gardens: the grounds are shared with the owners, but the cottage has a quite private lawned area to the side and small patio with table and chairs. Attractive countryside views from the grounds.
Parking: on gravelled area adjacent to the conservatory and front doors.
Bwthyn-y-Gorwel provides a cosy base for a couple on the edge of the Preseli Hills. A footpath virtually from the door leads to 300 acres of forestry, waterfall, lake and fascinating birdlife of the Ffynone woodlands. Other excellent walking in the area. Welsh Wildlife Centre and the kayaking centre at Cilgerran within easy reach. There are a number of pubs serving food within a few miles. Crymach, 4 miles away, has an excellent range of small shops, petrol station, pubs etc. Cardigan, 8 miles, has a large supermarket and full range of facilities. Plenty of activities in the area with beaches, prehistoric sites, historic castles and churches to explore.

Everything fine; thank you. We hope to revisit.Ms Claire O'Kell - 21st May 2018
Log fire lovely. Owners brilliant. So many places to see - great for dogs. Loved it - will go againMs C Warren - 1st November 2017
The property is a lovely conversion with total charmMr K Jones - 14th August 2017
It may be a minority interest but we visited several amazing old churches. It is not just the religious who are interested in these fascinating pieces of history.And we visited Museums - neither churches nor museums feature on your list. The owners were very welcoming and the cottage was very good value. For us - and that is not the fault of the cottage - there was not quite enough room for the books and maps etc. that we always take. The loft above was not sufficiently accessible for us to use it. But that's us - not Cliff and Diana.Mrs Robinson - 4th October 2016
Lovely couple very hospitable. Great break.Ms Tarling - 13th September 2016
Lovely warm welcome of tea, cake and flowers in the cottage. Property was delightful with everything you could possibly need. Beautiful countryside, we loved the area. Had to drive to eating out places but that was okay we ate in most nights. Lots of general information also supplied on area in the cottage. Would definitely recommend.Mrs Lake - 12th September 2016
Great hosts who were very cooperative in offering information.Mrs Wilson - 16th August 2016
The property was well-placed to visit a number of interesting places and not far from three beautiful beaches. We especially enjoyed the Iron Age hillfort reconstruction at Castell Henllys and the nature reserve at Cilgerran.Mr Peter Garbutt - 4th July 2016
Very friendly people. Nice house, 19th century, very comfortable and excellently furnished.Dr Roth - 27th June 2016

Owners excellent, warm welcome, tea & coffee cake on arrival. Plenty of information on the area.Mr Dewett - 17th June 2015
The cottage is fantastic, we loved staying there. Cliff and Diana are lovely people and it was a pleasure to meet them. I'm just sorry our time went so fast, we would both like to go to the same place for longer again so I do hope to get in touch and maybe reserve it for next year as our work commitments get in the way for the rest of this year pity!!Ms Jakubowski - 10th June 2015
The owners made us feel very welcome and they were extremely hospitable.Ms Hasselt - 4th August 2014
