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. We have arranged a 10% discount on this trip if you chose to stay with us.
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 for families who have a disabled child. I work at a charity for disabled children and our youngest daughter (now 21) 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.
We are usually at home. Our daughter (22) 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.
We had a super overnight stop in a really welcoming family home. The rooms were of a really high standard and very comfy. My children and I felt really welcome by the hosts. I can't recommend this highly enough. A beautiful setting tucked away near the coast. There is soon to be a holiday let next door, I can't wait to book it for next year with my whole family.
I traveled to Wales, and to the old stonehouse farm in Felinwynt, on a whim and it turned out to be one of the highlights of my trip to the UK. Traveling by public transport (train to Carmarthen, bus to Cardigan) I was a bit concerned about getting out to the farm. Alex and Renie arranged transport and the whole family welcomed me (Alissa, Deb, Jess and Toulouse the lovely toy poodle). The house is magical and the room is lovely. Alex and Renie went out of their way to make my stay special: providing me with walking sticks for the muddy coastal path, ensuring I had proper maps so I wouldn't get lost, assisting me with planning walking trips from their house or via the Cardi Bach ( a great local bus that runs along the coast), and making amazing hearty breakfasts to start me on my day. On the one day when rain and winds kept me indoors, it was great to curl up in front of the fire and relax in the comfort of their wonderful company. Special treats are homemade coffee ice cream, french toast, and feeling as if this is not an Air BnB but a place like home. If you are traveling to Wales (and even if you are just thinking about traveling to Wales) this is a wonderful location to explore the coastline and stay with a welcoming and caring family.
Once upon a time, on a stormy, stormy night, not so long ago, two weary travellers arrived at an old stone farmhouse in deepest darkest welsh Wales and were greeted by perfect hosts, they loved the dodgy zombie horror movies and the coffee ice cream, both home made! They slept well in a really comfortable oak bed, homemade too and ate a hearty breakfast and left refreshed and happy.
All Thanks To Alex and Renie xxx
PS I'm just not quite sure that everyone gets out alive................
Dare you risk it?
Alex & Renie were wonderful hosts. They made us feel very at home, and the house was great. The breakfast was amazing too. The only shame is that we couldn't stay for longer. Would highly recommend!
Alex and Renie live in a very nice region. We had a nice walk along the beatiful bay. Alex and Renie were very nice and friendly. I highly recommend this place to other vacationers.
It cant be a better break for me to stay at Alex and Renie's farm house. The house is so lovely and cosy, the family is so warm and friendly. I enjoyed walking along the coast path which was not far from the farm. Alex even hand drew a little map for me to make sure I walked on the right path- it was so sweet. Hopefully I will come back in Spring with my parents. Thank you again for letting me stay at your lovely home.
I really enjoyed my short stay at their beautiful farmhouse (especially the treks along the coastal path nearby). Alex and Renie were excellent hosts with interesting life stories - I think I learnt a lot about life from them! I'll definitely recommend a short stay at their lovely farmhouse to friends travelling around the region.
Alex and Renie welcomed us very friendly. They offered us Tea and a lovely cake. Their farm is absolutely beautiful and the best place to enjoy this amazing countryside. Both gave us advice where to go and to eat. During the evening we attended an entertaining family game and in the morning Alex made us a fantastic breakfast – one of the best we've had so far! Unfortunately, we only had one night to stay with them due to our route. We would have loved to stay longer with them.
We highly recommend to stay with these lovely people.
We were a stag party (albeit quite a sedate one!) and Alex, Renie, and Alicia still welcomed us. They built us a loggy fire, gave us carte blanche to stay up chatting and made delicious breakfasts! We had the most lovely time. This is clearly a place of great love and affection. We felt comforted to know there are such warm and gentle people in the world. We hope that many, many families come and use their annex and experience the joy of the Elsaesser family for themselves!.
I just wrote a great recommendation for Alex and Renie, but the system threw me out... Would be nice to know in advance, when you are having a maintanance works...
Anyway - our week was great, we loved the house, the people, the dog and collecting eggs from the chicken /especially Jakob our 8 year old, the clean rooms and all the extras, like advice for sights nearby, lending us (without our asking) very funny body board for our children, baseball gloves, badminton gear and then the nice breakfast talks and the waffles.... We were sorry to leave, even the weather was so nice... flower power on our car window brought us on our way home to London and then to Austria. We HIGHLY recommend a stay at Alex´s and Renie´s...!
And they are already building up an extension with a lovely shower, so we will send some friends and family over, who want to explore this lovely corner of West Wales.
