Syglen Cottage is one of a cluster of pretty holiday cottages with superb leisure facilities including an indoor heated swimming pool, hot tub and a 40ft games room. In the heart of West Wales, this is a special place to relax and explore all that the area has to offer - the spectacular beaches of Cardigan Bay and Pembrokeshire, stunning wooded valleys, unique wildlife and attractions to appeal to all the family.

In the leisure suite, the Jacuzzi hot tub overlooks the pool and is a great place to unwind after a day out, while the well-equipped games room has a pool table, table tennis and various games, puzzles and books to help keep all ages entertained.

An original stone farm building that has now been completely transformed into the sweetest holiday cottage, Sylgen Cottage is a favourite choice for couples or small families. It is full of character, with beamed ceilings and cosy furnishings, so guests have returned time and time again.

From the cottage, every direction will lead to a beautiful, unspoilt landscape - rolling countryside, quiet country lanes and hedgerows displaying colourful wild flowers from early spring right through to autumn and wooded valleys offering peaceful trails. Bird lovers will be in for a treat as regular visitors include the famous Red Kite, Buzzards, Woodpeckers, Owls, a colony of Swallows and other more common birds.

In secluded countryside, away from busy roads, yet convenient for the local market towns, the magnificent coastline and a whole host of holiday activities, Syglen Cottage is the perfect retreat!

The owners live on site and will be there to welcome you on arrival. They are also happy to provide information about the local area.
