Glynnedd is a beautifully presented and spacious dormer bungalow, with a high standard of comfort, set within the peaceful village of Bronant. You are assured of a warm Welsh welcome by the owners, or “Croeso Cynnes” as they say in Wales. The house is perfect for anyone needing a ground floor bedroom and bathroom, and an access ramp is also available in the property. Its enclosed garden has country views, including the stunning Cambrian Mountains, and is ideally situated to provide an excellent touring base from which to explore Cardigan Bay, the Heritage Coastline and the wonderful county of Ceredigon.
The rural surroundings of this holiday cottage really are an undiscovered gem. The sparsely populated county of Ceredigon offers roads that are untroubled by traffic, footpaths and bridleways that can often be explored without coming across another person. The terrain is excellent for cycling (on or off-road), motorbike and motor touring, walking, birdwatching, fishing and horse riding. If you like to explore the culture and history of the area, you can visit ancient churches, the ruined Cistercian Abbey of Strata Florida and Wales’ most remote chapel in the hills, Soar Y Mynydd. The Tregaron to Abergwesyn mountain road is well-worth driving as it offers wide open vistas of remote mountains and moorland. A world away from the bustling cities and hectic motorways, this is probably the greatest wilderness in southern Britain.
Just 6 miles away is the delightful town of Tregaron, steeped in history and famous for being a gathering place for the drovers who, before the advent of rail transport, herded large numbers of cattle, sheep and even geese, hundreds of miles to the markets of south east England. Today, the very small town still has a friendly atmosphere and boasts independent shops and an award-winning bar and restaurant. From here you can also visit the Cors Caron Nature Reserve, the largest raised bog in Britain with boardwalks winding through it.
Within half an hour’s drive you can visit the picturesque and colourful Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron, the seaside resort of Aberystwyth, with its long promenade and pier, the longest electric cliff railway in Britain, running since 1896, and the Rheidol steam railway. Visit Rhiannon’s Welsh Gold, Red Kite Centre, and the waterfalls at Devil’s Bridge. A 45 minute drive will bring you to New Quay, a quaint fishing town with lovely beaches and famous for its seafood restaurants and boat rides. Shop, pub and restaurant 1/4 mile.
