The Space

There is something about this thatched cottage that brings out the romance. We have hosted many honeymooners, couples that become engaged while here, and anniversary trips. It is simply lovely and cosy in an architecturally unique building near to the Welsh coast.

Our situation provides guests with an excellent base to explore the many local attractions and the Coastal Path. Ffynnon Oer is not too far (nor too close) to the coastal villages. We are “just right.” By staying at Ffynnon Oer you will avoid the tourist crowds while being able to dip into the beach villages (or the water) as you please.

Ffynnon Oer is also not too isolated. Getting here does not require a four-wheel drive to navigate a pot-holled farm road. We are located on a good road so guests can easily hop in their car for a quick explore. Our guests enjoy the fact that Ffynnon Oer is a “hot spot” (compared to other holiday locations). We offer reliable internet with wi-fi so you can sit on the sofa and plan your next adventure. Most guests receive a decent mobile signal. No worries about having to roam around in a field or hilltop trying to get a signal!

On top of all its practical advantages, the cottage itself will be one of the highlights of your trip. Ffynnon Oer is one of the best surviving examples of an eighteenth century clom cottages in Wales. It is Grade II listed in recognition of its “outstanding architectural interest. “ The cottage was built around 1750, and although there have been alterations, the interior arrangement and many details are original to that time. The “crogloffts” are traditional sleeping platforms that were once common in West Wales, as were wickerwork chimneys such as the one seen here.

Apart from doing repair work, no one has built in clom in this area for well over a century. The walls are protected with a traditional limewash and the oak crucks and roof structure are all original and untouched since the eighteenth century.

Our gardens are lovely any time of the year. Even in winter, there are over 20 different varieties of snowdrops. The front of the house is planted with a rose and herb garden. Please cut the roses and herbs for your enjoyment.

We are dog friendly. Canine visitors adore the coastal path or exploring the countryside.

Bath towels, bed linens, and bathroom welcome pack are included.

The house is situated in a small hamlet of houses. We are near to the beaches of ceredigion, Aberaeron (15 minutes), Llangranog (30 minutes) Lampeter, the Llanerchaeron estate, Aberystwyth (35 minutes) and lovely dining at Ty Mawr Mansion which has been awarded five stars from VisitWales. Paragliding and walking is popular in the area.

This property is co-located with another property that sleeps six. Both can be booked at the same time for a large party of eight.

Everyone loves the drama of the Welsh coast. The peaceful view of sheep across the meadow and our lovely gardens. View our blog for lots of ideas on what to do and where to eat: search for 'springwater cottages" plus my name, "Melise" to find the blog.

Getting Around

There is a private drive. A car is really a necessity. Even though buses are available, to experience the area fully you will want to have transport. West Wales isn't densely populated and the villages are spread out over hills and through valleys. To poke around properly requires a car or a commitment to hiking! This is part of the beauty of the place.

Other Things to Note

Towels, starter firewood, welcome tea & coffee, and bathroom amenities are provided to make a cosy welcome.
