Peace and seclusion await you in this spacious Welsh country house, with 30 acres of garden, fields, wooded hillsides and river to enjoy and explore. This idyllic valley is holiday heaven for children: tucked away down a long private drive at Gilfach Vale, they rediscover the joy of fresh air and wide spaces, with endless opportunities to play and imagine. The large games room offers indoor entertainment too. With the children happy, the adults can relax and enjoy lazing in the garden or the rambling house with plenty of space to spend time together or retreat to a quiet corner.

Hidden away here, you may hardly need to venture out but when you do, it’s only about 10 minutes to the friendly little market town of Newcastle Emlyn with its shops, cafes, pubs and the castle ruins perched above the River Teifi. You’ll find coves with picturesque seaside villages and sandy beaches within half an hour at Aberporth, Tresaith, Penbryn and Llangrannog. Visit the harbour town of New Quay and take a boat trip along the stunning coast of Cardigan Bay, watching out for dolphins and seals as you go. And at the end of the day, pleasantly tired from all that sea air, return home to the welcome tranquillity of Gilfach Vale.
