Available to book from 1st December 2019
Situated on the edge of the Ystwyth Valley, with acres of walks, streams and waterfalls all on your doorstep, Wisteria Cottage immerses you in the heart of rural west Wales. With natural beauty all around you, you’ll be able to appreciate why so many television series have chosen this landscape as their backdrop.
The main property itself dates back to the 1800s, and was the local surgeon’s house until the mid-1950s. Wisteria Cottage was once the stable and hayloft, and is now a delightfully converted detached holiday cottage with lots of contemporary comforts like a wood burning stove in the spacious living room and a hot tub outside.
The owners live nearby and have gone to every effort to make you feel at home, with two Galaxy tablets and a subscription to The Times newspaper and Readily, giving you access to over 2,000 magazines. You can enjoy your own private patio area or wander into the owners’ well-kept garden and relax on the benches.

Attractions and nearby amenities
- Go back in time at Aberaeron, a delightful Georgian fishing port where you’ll find lots of elegant houses, independent shops and a craft centre. You can take a boat trip from here to explore Cardigan Bay from the water.
- Aberystwyth’s seafront makes a grand statement, with a lovely sweeping curve and a large beach to enjoy. A stroll along the 2km-long promenade takes you from the marina up to Constitution Hill and the camera obscura. On the first and third Saturday of every month there’s a bustling farmers’ market in town.
- If you ever saw the TV series The Prisoner, you’ll recognise Portmeirion. This quirky and unique village was the brainchild of one man, Clough Williams-Ellis, and is now one of Wales’ leading tourist attractions. Why not take a guided walking tour?
- A stay at Wisteria Cottage puts you amongst some lovely gardens, not to mention acres of woodland and country walks to enjoy. But if you want to see more gardens, we recommend Aberglasney. The gardens here featured in the BBC series “A Garden Lost in Time” and there are 10 acres of magnificent vistas, plants and beds to explore.
- Picture a beach and the chances are you’ll be thinking of something like Penbryn. The beach here is almost one mile of golden sands, with a café and a shop too. If you’d like to get a bit more active on the water, you can try windsurfing, hire dinghies or paddleboards and more at Cardigan Bay Watersports.
- If you’re looking for a great day out, a journey north to Snowdonia takes you to Blaenau Ffestiniog, where you can visit a unique slate mine and see what it was like to be a Victorian miner. Or closer to home you’ll find Llanerchaeron, an elegant Georgian villa with a walled garden and traditional working farm.
