Ty Cariad

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Pont-Rhyd-y-Groes, Ceredigion, Wales
'Ty Cariad’ is Welsh for ‘beloved house’ or ‘darling house’. We chose this name to reflect all the love and attention that went into renovating it from October 2007 to May 2009 and the way the cottage is nestled in the foothills of the Cambrian mountains, providing a relaxing retreat and a chance to recuperate to the sound of birdsong. Our cottage is surrounded by forests, nature reserves and riverside walks and has stunning views over the beautiful Ystwyth valley. We are on the doorstep of the historic Hafod forest estate with it's wonderful landscaped walks for all levels of ability. Visit the cavern cascade to see a waterfall carved into a cave, or wander higher up the valley for some incredible views. Devil's Bridge with it's famous waterfalls are only 3 miles away, and we are situated some 20mins from the coast by car... Read more

Over a busy frenetic summer we had longed for peace and quiet, we had craved cosy warmth, fantasized about stunning autumnal scenery, beautiful breathtaking walks and quiet reflection time. All of these we found at Ty Cariad. The cottage itself is beautifully, thoughtfully decorated, loved...More

About the neighbourhood
We are on the doorstep of the historic Hafod forest estate with it's landscaped gardens and walks of differing lengths and levels of agility. There are the ruins of an old mansion house, waterfalls and a cavern cascade. In the valley below the village is a gorge with the River Ystwyth making it's way though. A few miles down the valley is the scenic Grogwynion Nature Reserve riverside walking, and bathing when the river is calm. The Teifi pools are nearby for angling enthusiasts. We are on two of the best cycling routes in the country (81/82) and a little further along is an excellent riverside walk called Black Covert and above this, a medieval hill fort. If you go further south, the Strata Florida Abbey ruins are worth a visit (do book a table for a meal at the excellent Black Li... more
