Wonderful location, peaceful countryside whilst being only 10 mins from Aberystwyth. Everything you would need in a cottage plus more. Comfortable bed, cosy lounge and amazing views.

Lovely long weekend stay. We arrived first morning of lifting of lockdown in Wales for self catering hospitality on 27th March. An idyllic location on the slopes of Cambrian hills and 7 mins from Aberystwyth. Very warm welcome from host Marilyn and immaculate cottage for a couple with welcome bottle of wine in fridge and few other goodies and tea making materials. Cottage has all modern amenities, warm and some lovely walks within 10 mins drive. Coastal path walk was superb. Highly recommended for a long weekend rural retreat or a summer week break for a couple.

Thank you very much indeed for your lovely review. It was such a pleasure having lovely guests to start off after lockdown as I was a bit nervous of getting back into the flow! I couldn't have wished for more perfect guests and am delighted they enjoyed their stay. Brilliant!

We spent a very restful week in Celyn Cottage - Marily and Ivor are lovely hosts who are always available if you need them (we didn't)! The cottage is exactly as described, both warm and comfortable but far better equipped for a Self Catering property than I have ever encountered - the only items you need to take are food (and Marilyn provides a lovely welcome pack too). We enjoyed sitting out on the patio in the evening sun despite the chilly weather. Highly recommend - we will return.

Thank you for your kind review. By the time you return next year we will have completed a couple of landscape projects to make the cottage even more enjoyable. The gardens will be maturing nicely and additional planting will be done too. We look forward to welcoming you back.

I would recommend this cottage to friends. Marilyn and Ivor have worked hard to make this a lovely place to stay. It is clean and very well equipped. They made us very welcome and kindly left basic supplies in the fridge as well as bread, lovely biscuits and a bottle of wine. We would definitely stay there again.

A beautiful little holiday cottage, with everything you need for a wonderful peaceful holiday. A lovely warm welcome from Marilyn and a very welcome, welcome pack. You are only ten minutes, by car from the town and beach. This was our second stay here and it was even better than the first. A real gem of a place. Hope to make it a third time.

This updated one bedroom attached cottage is located just outside of Aberystwyth. We were met upon our arrival by our very pleasant host, Marilyn, who had stocked the kitchen with two types of bread, cookies, butter, and milk. She also brought us a lovely bottle of chilled wine as we began to settle in. When I asked about using the washer/dryer, she so kindly brought me washing powder and softener. During our stay the weather turned cold and she offered us the use of some coats. My only con would be to update the shower. Marilyn is undoubtedly the kindest and most thoughtful host in our experience! My husband also enjoyed talking with her husband about their property.

Thank you very much indeed for your very generous review. I'm so glad to know that you arrived safely back in USA after your trip. It was a pleasure meeting you both and having you to stay at Celyn Cottage and I do hope you enjoyed seeing the wonderful area while over here. I take note of your advice regarding the shower but, even giving a lot of thought, it is difficult to alter as it needs to be suitable for disabled users too. They need the wide walk-in area and low shower-head and ability to use hand gripps. It was lovely that your husband found the Welsh slate roofs so fascinating and Ifor enjoyed explaining how it is done. Hwyl!
