Why we've chosen Stone Cottage

Stone Cottage enjoys a peaceful position halfway along a dead-end road in a wooded valley. A stream runs to the front, and there is good country walking from the door. The interior is simple, and comfortable with under-floor heating via a biomass boiler, a very efficient woodburner, and an open fire. Only the two neighbours use the lane that passes to front. Halfway between Carmarthen and Cardigan, there is plenty to explore locally or head out (around 35 mins) to the beaches of Ceredigion or Pembrokeshire. Stone Cottage is a traditional West Wales cottage newly renovated with sustainability in mind.

Why is this a greener holiday?

First, to truly minimise the environmental impact, guests are encouraged to arrive by public transport: the nearest train station is Carmarthen and from there it’s only short taxi ride north to the property. Onsite the owners have implemented a number of green initiatives to reduce their impact on the environment, including retrofitting a little used house for tourism purposes rather than constructing a new building. There is a biomass wood-pellet boiler and an efficient wood-burning stove for heating. The walls are plastered with lime, rather than concrete, so they are breathable. Low energy light bulbs are used throughout. Onsite natural spring water is filtered and used for drinking. There are clearly labeled recycling bins onsite.
