Ty Mari and Penroc have interconnecting doors to provide accommodation with two double and three twin bedrooms, two bathrooms and two very spacious living areas. Several of our guests rent both, even if their party is smaller, to provide separate living space for their teenagers! If you do so, we suggest Mum and Dad bag Penroc as the double bedroom is fabulous!
The cottages are at the end of a terrace of c.18th century cottages overlooking the Ystwyth river, with stunning views up and down the valley. The location best suits groups looking to "get away from it all" and who enjoy walking, bird-watching or relaxing in cosy comfort around the coal-effect stoves. There are beautiful beaches 35 minutes away (Borth sands) and many other places of interest worth a visit. Devil's Bridge, where there is a narrow-guage railway to Aberystwyth and fantastic water-falls, is only three miles away. Cycling, pony-trekking, fishing and canoeing are available for the more energetic, but even after 37 years we have not exhausted all the possible walks.
Both cottages have one large living room downstairs, with the well-equipped kitchens situated along one wall.
Night storage heaters provide comfortable background heating and the gas stoves are lovely to sit around and mean the cottages are warm enough even on the coldest winter nights.
Both cottages have window seats to enjoy the view.
The double room in Penroc has french doors onto a spacious balcony - a quiet area to sunbathe or eat your breakfast.
There are two double beds (Vi-spring mattresses) and six twin beds (Ty Mari sleeps 6, Penroc sleeps 4).
A very high standard of furnishings throughout - these cottages are well-loved homes and we trust our guests to treat them with respect. There are also a good selection of DVD's, games, puzzles and children's toys,Sky TV and internet (sorry!) in case the weather drives you indoors.
There are two upright freezers (one in each cottages) and the Spa in Rhayader is worth a stop on your journey through in order to stock these (the butcher in Rhayader is excellent too). There is a good Morrisons in Aberystwyth (25 mins) and a small store in Pontrhydygroes for newspapers and essentials.
Towels and bedding, a final clean, phone calls UK eves and weekends, heat and light and internet all included.
