What others have to say...

“Had a really lovely week in this fantastic cottage. This is our first visit to this area and we thought it was fabulous. Loved all the beaches and coastline especially around Llangrannog and Mwnt. Did some great river walks including a lovely one form Cardigan up the river Teifi to Cilgerran castle. Hope to be back soon.

Cryngae sits astride a hill about 20 minutes from the magnificent Cardigan coastline, on the edge of Carmarthenshire, close to the Pembrokeshire border. Each county is home to an amazing variety of seashores, from the biggest stretch of sand in Wales to beautiful estuaries, coastal towns and small quaint villages.

Unspoilt beaches are all within easy reach, with cliff walks, pubs and cafes and endless soft, gold sand. The Cardigan coastline is home to a pod of bottle-nosed dolphins and porpoises that are regularly sighted, and one third of the world's population of grey seals live along the Pembrokeshire coast. Take a boat trip for a closer look.

If you are looking for an adventure holiday, our area has it all, the Teifi valley being a paradise for walkers, fishermen, cyclists, canoeists, bird watchers and riders. Gentle riverside paths, sea front strolls, exhilarating coastal path walks or the rough, tough terrain of the Preseli Mountains or the Brecon Beacons National Park, the choice is endless. Cycle along our quiet country lanes, cross country along the National cycle network, or for an unforgettable journey ride along the Millennium coastal path.  For adrenaline junkies, try mountain biking through the Brechfa and Crychan forests.

For the young and adventurous, Oakwood theme park is less than an hour away, as is Folly Farm, a big hit for children and adults alike, and the Museum of Childhood is 5 minutes drive away. We have 2 steam railways close at hand, together with quad biking, paintballing and even a motor racing circuit at Pembrey, also home to the UK's newest turf racecourse at Ffos Las. The Teifi river and the Towy offer some of the best Sewin (sea trout) and Salmon fishing in Europe. Local lakes and ponds offer excellent game fishing. Sea fishing trips are available locally too. We have a mile of fishing rights on the small river Nant Bargoed, where guests are welcome to try their luck.Water sport challenges such as wind surfing, kite surfing, as well as regular surfing are all on the doorstep, but not just coastal, some of the best canoeing runs in Wales are available all year round on the Teifi too.

Wales's stormy past is evident from the many castles that survive in the area, from the magnificent Pembroke to Carreg Cennen perched atop the mountain to the tumbled remains encircled by the Teifi River in Newcastle Emlyn. Several unique National Trust Properties including Dinefwr, Llanarchaeron and the Colby Woodland garden are nearby. The historical treasure of Aberglasney is a short distance away, near the National Botanical Gardens of Wales, both a must see.

The tranquillity, remoteness and stunning landscapes have attracted many artists and crafts people to this inspiring part of Wales, with a wealth of small galleries and shops throughout the area. Specialised food producers abound too, for example Caws Cenarth, Pemberton's Chocolate and many farms and smallholdings offering organic produce at farmers markets held regularly locally. Renowned Welsh Black beef, Welsh lamb, a wealth of locally caught fish and home grown vegetables abound in our restaurants and cafes.
