This quirky, spacious 3-storey property takes up to 6 people (to book up to 4 guests, see our second listing 'Very Spacious 2-bedroomed River Cottage'). It lies at the bottom of the beautiful Teifi gorge and the peaceful atmosphere and abundance of wildlife offer guests an opportunity to relax and recharge their batteries. The semi-detached cottage has a large, self-contained, pretty, private garden. Cilgerran castle emerges out of the trees above and the Teifi flows past at a safe distance!

The space
The house sleeps six humans (one dog is welcome too!) and access to the property is off the footpath which runs along the river Teifi. The conservatory serves as the entrance to the house and is also the dining room. It looks onto the private, lawned garden with patio area, large picnic bench and separate table for a BBQ (BBQ itself is not provided). A rotary washing line has been set up and you also have an outside covered area to hang wet suits etc. You will find room in the garden to store canoes, paddle boards and bicycles if you wish and there is a tap to rinse off boots, boats, mud and sand etc. On the ground floor there is a well-equipped galley kitchen with environmentally-friendly cleaning products provided. This room opens into a cosy lounge with multi-fuel stove which takes a mixture of coal and wood (instructions for use are provided) and there is kindling, logs and coal in the scuttle to get you started. You will also find there is a computer table and chair set up in the corner. We have fibre broadband and in May 2021 a new router was installed which serves the whole house. Thus, Wi Fi including Wi Fi tv is provided, but be aware a mobile phone signal cannot be accessed inside the house. On the first floor there is a bedroom with double bed and a second bedroom with two single divan beds plus en-suite (comprising of toilet and sink). The main bathroom includes a bath and walk-in shower. The third bedroom is in the spacious attic on the second floor and has one double bed.

Due to the COVID -19 pandemic we are cleaning and sanitising the house according to current guidelines. As an extra precaution we are leaving two days between visits where possible to ensure your safety and ours. If you wish to bring your own bedding etc please let me know beforehand.

Where you’ll be

Cilgerran, Wales, United Kingdom

Cilgerran has a castle, one pub (at the moment), a café, an award-winning shop and post office, Dog Food Dave's pet care store plus a 'Labels for Less' outlet. Those who enjoy kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding need only take a few steps down from our gate to access the river. There are numerous local walks around the village, some of which encompass the impressive 13th century castle and the 5th-6th century Ogham stone in the churchyard. There is also the gorge trail to Cilgerran Wildlife Centre and the nearby coastal path is only a short distance away. The area is steeped in history including its slate-quarrying past which is still in evidence today.
