Surrounded by rustling trees and enjoying an elevated position over a valley, the views are just glorious, overlooking the famous River Teifi and the pretty village of Newcastle Emlyn. Inside, the décor is classic vintage accentuated with modern Scandi touches and tactile, traditional Welsh fabrics - a mix that works incredibly well. From the splendid wooden floors to the rich colour schemes, pretty lighting to the floor-to-ceiling glass windows, this is a home stay perfect for families, friends or a couple seeking plenty of space to relax. It's also an excellent base for those who love the outdoors with walks, fishing and cycling opportunities galore on your doorstep.
Living and eating

The Scandinavian-designed open plan living, dining and kitchen area covers most of the ground floor and boasts floor-to-ceiling glass windows, offering stunning views and flooding the room with beautiful natural light. The pretty sitting area has a stunning, modern wood burner at its heart whilst the incredible kitchen - complete with Range cooker, Smeg fridge/freezer and all the equipment you will need to rustle up a feast, including the essential coffee machine - is sleek and modern in shades of cream and blue. We love the island which offers lots more prep space and a handy breakfast bar. In front of the kitchen, overlooking the pastoral views, is the dining table which easily seats six. In addition, there's a hidden-away snug with gorgeous seating, books and a record player - a fabulous spot for curling up for a peaceful moment to read or having a quiet chat.

Sleeping and bathing

You'll find one king-size en suite bedroom on the ground floor with fitted wardrobes and walk-in shower room, making it ideal for those with limited mobility (but please note there are a few steps to enter the property). Upstairs, you'll find two more gorgeous king-size en suite bedrooms - one with a walk-in shower and the other with walk-in shower and roll top bath. All the bathrooms have underfloor heating to keep toes toasty warm, whilst all of the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and have beds swathed in luxurious, softer-than-soft bedding to ensure a blissful nights' sleep.

Outdoor space

There's plenty of outdoor space with a terrace which can be accessed via the floor-to-ceiling sliding windows in the kitchen, allowing the outside in, and comes complete with a table, chairs and barbeque for a spot of outside dining (please note, the fire pit has been removed). Facing west, this spot gets the most incredible sunsets and is a perfect place to relax at the end of the day, with a glass of something chilled in hand. Children will love the large lawn for outdoor games, whilst if they look up they might spot a red kite or two, soaring high in the sky.


The Stables has WiFi so if you need to stay in touch with the outside world you can.


There is private parking for two cars, with access to an electric car charging point (please bring your own cable), to the side of the wood store. The Owners kindly ask for a £25 contribution for use of this throughout your stay. Payment arranged on arrival.


This is one of our pet-free properties.

Lucky you! This area of Wales is just beautiful with Cardigan Bay and the stunning coast of Pembrokeshire just a 15-minute drive away.
