Part of a beautiful old stone mill transformed into a 1 bed luxury holiday cottage, nestled in 13 acres of pasture & woods, only 3 miles from the fishing village and stunning beaches of Aberporth and 5 minute drive from the historic town of Cardigan.
Cryngae Mawr Farm was founded in the 1820s to make use of the natural spring to power a mill and dairy. Its sits in a sheltered spot with stunning views across the countryside, a private lake and lots of nooks and crannys to explore.
The Coach House itself is a traditional stone building with walls over 2ft which was originally used to store the farm coaches and run the mill workings.
It has recently been converted to a high standard providing a mezzanine bedroom, ensuite luxury bathroom with power rain shower and a large open plan kitchen and lounge with large double sofa bed.
The Coach House has a private garden to front but also has stable doors opening from the first floor out onto steps down to a sunny open garden area leading to the woods and streams beyond.
Everyone is free to roam around the farm and discover areas hidden away for private picnics or just sit around the Coach House and soak up the sun. Local paths and country lanes lead down to Aberporth for an easy walk to the coast, beaches pubs and restaurants.
Interaction with guests
Jo, Shaun and Mabel are always happy to offer advice on the area.
Other things to note
Dog are always welcome but only one is allowed in the Coachhouse, please let us know in advance as there is an additional charge of £10 per dog per stay, this is to reflect the additional cleaning cost passed on by our cleaners. But do please bring your own blankets throws etc and don't allow pets on the beds or sofas, or leave unaccompanied whether crated or not in the cottage at anytime. Please also make yourself familiar with our dog section in the house rules
If you intend to use the sofa bed please let us know when booking so we can leave the bedding for you.
If you are travelling with Children you don't need to pack everything as we have cots, stair-gates etc and a ready supply of wellies for those that want to paddle up the stream.
It is a requirement of booking that the lead guest provides :
The names of all guests (ages if under 18), home address, an email and mobile tel number
We need these details for our insurance and in case we need to get in touch with you on the day of arrival.
The lead guest (booker) is responsible for behaviour of all other guests in the group.
We really want all of our guests to feel at home in the cottages but there are a few basic rules to make everyone's stay more pleasurable and ours as hosts easier!
Please park only in designated spaces, as other areas can be slippery and we don't want you to get stuck.
Try to avoid treading mud through the cottage by removing muddy shoes in the entrance hall
Essentially leave the cottage clean and tidy as you found it, e.g please ensure all washing up is done and items replaced in the cupboards, furniture is back in the original position if you have moved it, used towels are left in the bathrooms, fridges are empty, work surfaces are clean and the BBQ's are clean and ready for the next guests.
We understand accidents happen but if you break anything let us know so we can replace it ready for the next guests.
Bag all of your rubbish and drop off at designated areas
No smoking or naked flames inside the cottages at anytime and please do not throw cigarette butts in the grounds, it may only look like one to you but they soon mount up and the grass isn't an ash tray.
We can't allow additional visitors or guests to the property other than those in the booking, this is to ensure we comply with fire and insurance regulations.
Please keep dogs on the lead at all times as we are surrounded by farms which often have livestock in the meadows and our chickens wander free range.
Please do not allow pets upstairs or on the sofas.
We want your children to have fun but please supervise them at all times, there are steep drops, deep water and all the hazards found on a working farm.
The legal bit....the booking guest is responsible for behaviour of all other guests and we reserve the right to recover any damages or additional cleaning costs via payment details held on Airbnb.
Notes for guests with Dogs.
We hope that your dog enjoys his break as much as you do. We have some rules specifically for your pets to ensure that the everyone has a safe and enjoyable break.
We would ask that you keep your dog on the ground floor and off of furniture. Please do not leave your pet unattended at any time in the cottage or gardens.
Wherever you are on the farm, fields, tracks or surrounding lanes please bag any dog mess and place in a tied off black bin bag or in the dog waste bin in the refuse area.
Please don’t just think, “I’ll kick some leaves over it”, “it’s not my garden someone else will do it” or “this field is just rough grass it doesn’t matter”. There’s nothing worse than standing is someone else’s dogs mess, its not fertiliser and unbagged it poses a health hazard to children playing or when we are carrying out maintenance such as strimming or mowing.
Dogs must be kept on the lead at all times (even just going to the car) whilst on the property regardless of how well behaved they are. Please be aware that there is a lake, some steep drops and often farm vehicles moving around. If your dogs need to run around off the lead to let off steam our local beaches are dog friendly and ideal for letting your pet run around.
We are surrounded by farms which often have livestock in the meadows, our chickens wander free range and some other guests just don’t like dogs. It is safer for your dog and a condition of our planning that all dogs have to be on the lead at all times so we must insist this is adhered to.
We are sorry if this all feels a bit draconian but we have to have one set of rules regardless of the dog or owner to ensure everyone has a fun and safe stay at the farm. If you feel you are unable to comply with any of this you will have to leave Sloeberry Farm.
