Lanlas Country Cottages
Aberaeron 3 miles. Situated on the owner’s 130-acre organic farm in beautiful rolling countryside, down a single lane farm track of about 0.5 miles, these wonderful holiday cottages are a perfect rural retreat, and have fabulous views of the Aeron Valley.
Just three miles from the scenic Welsh coastline, whose sandy beaches stretch for miles in both directions, these cottages offer four star-rated, beautifully presented accommodation, each with an enclosed private lawned garden with a barbecue and patio area.
There is also a large shared lawn and a children’s play area, plus a games room with a log fire, pool table, table tennis and games console, allowing you to join in all the fun with the other guests and make new friends. Take a stroll down to the owners’ fishing lakes for a spot of quiet time, or enjoy breathtaking woodland walks and National Trust footpaths from the doorstep, which once belonged to the Llanerchaeron estate.
The Farmhouse stands proud at the top of the courtyard, while The Stables and Mill Cottage form part of a three-cottage stone barn conversion at the side. Each is superbly presented and equipped, whilst still retaining many charming character features including open beams and stone walls.
You may wish to spend the whole of your holiday here enjoying the private fishing ponds, fresh eggs and homegrown vegetables from the farm, along with the resident chickens and sheep, but from the doorstep you can also walk down to, and along, the River Aeron, join country cycling routes (the properties are part of the Walkers and Cyclists Welcome schemes), or just relax and enjoy watching the Red Kites and other wild birds overhead. The NT café, house and gardens of Llanerchaeron are a five-minute walk or short drive away.
The local area offers picturesque coastal towns with shops, tea rooms, pubs and, of course, beaches (many of which are dog-friendly). For a secluded seaside stroll, or to try some surfing, then pop along to the sheltered bay at Aberarth, a hidden gem. The local area is bursting with activities, from horse riding and golf to boat trips and beach days, so you’re certain to find something to suit all ages. With so much to see and do on-site and in the surrounding area, these cottages are the perfect choice for a tranquil Welsh break.

SPACIOUS AND SPOTLESSLY CLEAN by Heather Mckeogh, Llanon, July 2016 on February 7th 2017
We had a great time at Farm House Barn celebrating our small family wedding. The barn is well equipped, clean and perfect for family gatherings. The hosts were kind, helpful and welcoming, and although living on the same site and on hand if needed were otherwise respectful of our privacy . Plenty of social space inside and outside. Lovely, peaceful setting with fantastic views. Although not ensuite, the 4 bathrooms were as good as given how close they are to all the rooms (except one). Lots of secure parking
