Located down a quiet lane, half a mile from the main road, Ciperdy is situated on a farm in southern Snowdonia where you are guaranteed a warm Welsh welcome. The cottage is perfect for working farm holidays in Wales with opportunities to see the farm animals from the doorstep – on the farm yard and in the fields around you. There is also a games room with a pool table and dart board in the shared games room next door.
The historical village of Pennal is just 1.5 miles away and offers a small village shop, a lovely restaurant / bar and Plas Talgarth’s health and leisure complex. Here you can treat yourself to a massage and a range of beauty treatments, enjoy the heated indoor and outdoor pools or even a session in the gym.
The cottage is also located between Aberdyfi (6 miles) and Machynlleth (5 miles) and they both have that something special to offer. Aberdyfi is located in a beautiful spot where the mountains meet the sea and its sandy beach stretches for 4 miles, all the way to Tywyn. Amongst its amenities is an 18 hole golf course, beautiful walks, watersports, lovely cafes and shops and a number of restaurants, with Pharoah’s Cellar Bistro and Sea Breese both recommended.
A short journey in the other direction brings you to Machynlleth, the Ancient Capital of Wales where the first Welsh parliament still stands today. Machynlleth also hosts the oldest street market in Britain every Wednesday and has many other amenities including mountain bike tracks, a leisure centre and a supermarket. Recommended restaurants in Machynlleth include Bistro Twenty One and the Wynnstay.
Other nearby attractions to visit during your working farm holidays in Wales includes the world famous Centre for Alternative Technology, Corris Craft Centre and King Arthur’s Labyrinth. Talyllyn steam railway offers a great day out and it also provides access to a number of scenic walks. Ynys Las RSBP Nature reserve is another popular attraction whilst the walk up Cadair Idris is well worth the effort with some very rewarding views from its peaks.
