Hen Ffermdy, Banceithin Farm and Holiday Cottages

Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 2
Llanon, Ceredigion, Wales
We're small. We don't have staff, hot tubs or saunas, gyms or pools. We're in a part of Wales often overlooked in favour of its more well-known and glamorous neighbours Pembrokeshire to the south and Snowdonia to the north. We're all about slow, simple, sustainable living. We're an escape from the constant pinging of arriving emails and social media updates demanding your attention. We're a place to be part of rural Wales not simply looking in on it from outside. We want our guests to discover and love wild Ceredigion in the same way we do, not as a visitor but as a local, so they will tell others and come back time and again.

The outbuildings and acres of Banceithin were unloved for many years. Out of the mess we've created a home, two environmentally friendly holiday cottages, a wildlife haven and thriving s...

Lovely cottage so peaceful. Everything you need like home from home. Lovely to meet all the animals. The home cooked food which you can purchase from the freeze in the games room is a must, the cottage pie was yummy so was the mushroom rogan...More

Our 4th visit and we've booked a 5th. Holiday accommodation doesn't get any better than this. When you arrive you are greeted with a personalised welcome sign and homemade Bara Brith. The cottage is warm, stylish, comfortable and well equipped but if you don't fancy...More

To put it simply, Banceithin is a wonderful little place. My girlfriend and I spent a weekend there in the hen ffermdy cottage for her 21st birthday and we immediately fell in love with it. Quaint, homely and personal, the cottage is a beautiful blend...More

About the neighbourhood
There's plenty to do outside our gate: spend the days walking the remote hills following the footsteps of Welsh drovers and miners; paraglide off Pumlumon mountain; tee off by the sea at Cardigan Golf Club; enjoy a long beach walk and picnic in the dunes at Ynys-las; get out on the Cardigan Bay sea to dolphin spot in a kayak or on a boat; meet the Welsh farming community at the local real ale pub or for something more cosmopolitan try the Harbourmaster, Summer Grill or Hive in Aberaeron; shop for local produce at markets in Cardigan, Aberystwyth and Aberaeron; visit studios of local artists Moriath Glass & Helen Elliott; treat yourself to vintage Welsh wool blankets & clothes from Jane Beck's Ty Zinc shop; step back in time at Cilgerran.
