Why we've chosen Lover's Cottage:

Named by the Guardian as one of the top five 'Lovenests' in the UK and featured in both '25 Beautiful Homes' magazine and the Scotsman, Lover's Cottage, is a traditional West Wales 'croglofft' cottage in a lovely rural location. Just a few minutes drive from the glorious sandy beaches of Llangrannog and Penbryn, it sits on a quiet road in a small hamlet a five minute walk from Rhydlewis village (where you can find a shop, salmon smokery and more).


  • Kitchen with country views and cooker, microwave, fridge, CD player and a Welsh slate work surface
  • Cegin Fawr with high ceiling, flagstone floor, traditional Ceredigion 'simne lwfr' (wickerwork chimney, lined for the woodburner)
  • Sofabed and second sofa
  • Doors at front and back to gardens; country views from windows both front and back
  • The woodburner is a specially commissioned heat-store stove - still warms the cottage the day after fire goes out
  • Crogloft: Double bed lit by traditional rooflight, open as mezzanine to room below. Low headroom
  • A travel-cot is (permanently) at the cottage, but bring own baby cot bedding, and high chair if required
  • Shower room: Large shower room with toilet and hand basin. Decent, powerful shower
  • Small garden to front that gets the sun most of the day, and a small raised patio with picnic bench to the rear with nice views
  • Access to field down to the river where there is another picnic bench
  • Parking
  • Suitable for well behaved pets. 
  • Rural public footpaths just yards away.
  • Deliberately simple and rustic with no TV and traditional oil lamps etc if you wish to use them (electric lights also fitted)
  • No clock, though there is a CD player/radio
  • Woodburning stove throws out an impressive 8kw of heat (equivalent to 8 bars on an electric fire) and stays lit overnight, but there is electric panel heating for back-up.
  • Generous midday check out time on day of departure.

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 including the restoration of a disused building for tourism purposes rather than constructing a new one. The walls are washed with lime, so they are breathable. Natural paints have been used. Locally sourced materials are used as much as possible. All materials are separated and recycled where possible.
