Located on the western side of mid Wales, Ceredigion is an ancient county with some wonderful valleys, woodlands and beaches as well as the Cambrian Mountains, an "Area of Astounding Natural Beauty." The most well known town in Ceredigion is Aberystwyth, a coastal university town with a lot of character. Ceredigion has a rich cultural heritage which can still be felt strongly today in some places including the village of Llanfihangel-y-Creuddyn. It is very quiet and off the beaten track today but this belies its historical significance.
Many guests will want to stay in the immediate area to relax and soak up the atmosphere and sense of place. The cabin is set in an enchanting meadow, to read more about exploring the meadow, click Meadow.
