About This Listing
Our farmhouse is almost 200 years old. We are in a quiet spot yet nestled between Aberporth on the coast and Cardigan with all the amenities. A great location for walking the coastal path or visiting some of the best beaches in West Wales.
The house is on a quiet 8 acre small holding near the beautiful coastline of West Wales. 3 miles to Cardigan and about a 40 minute drive to the Ferry to Ireland at Fishguard. Cardigan has a Aldi, a Tesco, and Co-op supermarket A few miles to 6 beautiful sand beaches, two that are National Trust. Our local beach is Mwnt, listed as No. 1 in the Daily Mail's list in the Top Ten: Europe's Secret Beaches. You can easily walk to the Ceredigion Coastal Path. There is a small bedroom with 2 single beds, another small one with a double bed, and a larger one with a King Size bed. Two bathrooms (one for exclusive use by guests) and a shower in an outbuilding if you hate baths and want an invigorating experience. We have our own eggs if you like a big breakfast.
It is a 15 minute walk to the local bus stops if you are using public transport. In the summer and selected days in the winter there is the Cardi Bach, a small bus that serves the Coastal Path so you only need to walk one way. The Cardi Bach bus stop in Felinwynt is close to our drive. Closest train stations are Carmarthen or Aberystwyth. If you come by bus, happy to pick you up in Cardigan. If you like to cycle, we usually have a bike you can borrow. Plenty of good places to eat nearby and if you are on a tight budget you can cook in the kitchen. In season you can see what vegetables we have in the garden.
If the dates you want are booked, contact us we may have another bedroom available.
One of the most popular trips in Cardigan is a boat trip called Bay to Remember-On most trips you will see dolphins, seals and plenty of bird life.
As a side note, all money we earn from airbnb goes to a building fund so we can convert one of the stone barns into a holiday home to cater for families who have a disabled child. I work at a charity for disabled children and our youngest daughter (now 23) has a disability.
Guests are welcome to use the kitchen and the washing machine and dryer. Guests are also encouraged to make themselves at home.
Interaction with Guests
We are usually at home. Our daughter (23) is also living here. We are usually around as we need to care for the horses and chickens.
We live in a rural location although there is a convenience shop 2 miles away. You can walk to the coastal path from our house.
There is a bus stop via a footpath (10-15 minute walk) for an hourly daily service. When the Coastal bus is running, that makes 4 stops a day near the top of our drive. If you are using public transport to visit, last bus from Carmarthen to Cardigan is 6.15 pm. Also no buses on Sunday except the small coastal buses.
Other Things to Note
Unfortunately we do not take pets.
If you are a smoker you can smoke in the outside porch/conservatory. The cats are outside cats and the dog is a small poodle and does not shed hair. We ask our guests to take off their shoes when they go upstairs.
Many of our pillows and duvets have down and feather in them. If you have an allergy, let us know so we can use polyester pillows and duvets.
If you are walking the Ceredigion Coastal Path or just visiting West or South West Wales, you couldn't choose a better place to stay than the Old Stone Farmhouse. Your hosts will look after your every need, including a freshly cooked breakfast to start your day, and help you with your itinerary if required. The Farmhouse is a beautifully quiet place to return to at the end of a busy day where you can relax with the family if you so wish. It is surprisingly convenient for buses.
I enjoyed my stay immensely - thank you Alex and Renie.
A lovely place in beautiful surroundings! Alex & Renie are very warm, friendly people. They live in a beautiful cottage on the country side, together with their youngest daughter Alissa (who's 23 years old). Horses in the garden, a green house, cats around. It's a great place to relax and enjoy your time at the cottage or to stay there if you are on a road trip (like we did). Very helpful, also with instructions/directions. The made a reservation for the restaurant before we knew it! Absolute recommendation! (Also very clean and a great matrass /linen!).
Alles is in het werk gesteld om het ons naar de zin te maken door Alex en Renie.
Nog nooit zo'n mooie en complete gite/cottage kunnen huren.
Omdat het boeken via de website van Air B&B voor ons zeer ingewikkeld was, hebben wij hierdoor fouten gemaakt.
Maar Alex en Renie hebben alles goed gemaakt!!
Wat ook op de site van Airb&b beter zou kunnen is een duidelijke routebeschrijving naar de lokatie vermelden (de plek was heel moeilijk te vinden), en de afstanden tot een stads- of dorpscentrum vermelden.
Nogmaals DANK Alex en Renie!!
Alex and Renie are lovely people and made us feel really welcome. The breakfast was delicious and the place gorgeous. We'd love to come back one day.
Alex and Renie were very warm and welcoming! They made us tea and cakes upon arrival - so lovely. The farmhouse is a bit remote but in a beautiful countryside location. Rooms lovely and well appointed though the single room was a bit small. However there is a skylight over the bed so would have been able to see the stars had the weather been better. Cheery fire in the sitting room to come home to after a long day spent outside.Breakfast was simple country food made to order and the hosts very kind and friendly!
Alex and Renie were great hosts. They allowed us to take over their dining room and arranged a birthday meal for me and my family which was cooked by their daughter.
They have a lovely character house in a beautiful part of Wales. We were made to feel at home and look forward to going back again for a longer stay.
Thank you very much for the great stay. We had a wonderful experience!The advices by Alex and Renie already before our stay were really helpful!

About the Host, Alex & Renie
After almost all the children left home (we have 9 of them) we wanted to share our home with others. Sometimes they come back so it can be a busy household at times. Originally from the USA, we have been in Britain since 1980. When our youngest was born with a disability, our life direction changed. We moved to Wales in 1997. I love my work at a charity for disabled children. We also are involved in disabled skiing.
We have met so many interesting and lovely people through hosting with airbnb. It has been good fun and a good excuse to keep the house tidy. Also the funds have helped us convert an old stone cow barn into a holiday let. We just finished it. We like walking and cycling and exploring all the beautiful parts of the UK.
A lovely beach. The village has pubs, shops and a post office. Can walk or bus there from our house. The Fish and Chip shop by the beach is good.Aberporth Wales
