Pet the horses, feed the hens and watch the cutest little Spring lambs West Wales has to offer: Ty Clyd is the perfect rural escape and most definitely offers a taste of ‘the good life’!
Ty-Clyd is an old cottage which was renovated in 2010. Teresa, the owner, told us that 3 generations of her family were born there, her mother, her grandmother and great grandmother.
The cottage was the original farmhouse at Hafod Fach near Cross Inn, Llanon near Cardigan Bay. In the 1920s, Teresa’s family built the house which she lives in today and, no longer inhabited, the cottage became used as a farm outbuilding. Completely renovated, it is now a beautifully presented traditional Ceredigion-style longhouse.
Alongside the log burner in the living room, you can see the original bread oven. The framework you can see on the other side is what was used to hang cooking pots above the fire – some of the old pans stand on the windowsill (top left of the picture).
Ty-Clyd is ideal for couples looking for a rural escape with a romantic base, for families wishing to venture to the beach, and for walkers and their dogs too. There are 20 acres on the farm, including wildlife-rich fields which are Sites of Special Scientific interest. Stroll slowly through them to spot wildflowers and unusual butterflies!
From Ty-Clyd, you can enjoy beautiful countryside views and walks along forestry trails, explore the stunning Ceredigion Coast and the unspoilt landscape of the Cambrian Mountains. The friendly local pub is just a 5 minute walk away and there are plenty more places to eat in the Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron just 15 minutes’ drive.
It is much-loved by guests who stay there. As one said, “Please don’t change a thing, a perfect stay. Wonderful well appointed and equipped cottage, perfect host, a wonderful stay.”
