About Blaenwenllan Cottages
Oak, Ash and Cherry Cottages, named for the type of wood used to construct their handmade kitchens, were created from the farm’s original 18th century cow byre. Now tastefully converted to a high standard the old cow shed has been transformed into three, two bedroomed, well appointed cottages, suitable for people of all ages. Children are very welcome here at Blaenwenllan Cottages but due to the garden setting we do not have playground facilities or outdoor spaces for ball games. Step through the front door of any cottage and you will immediately enter a haven of comfort, with squashy sofas and comfortable beds. The kitchens have everything you need to cook anything from a speedy fry-up to a family feast. Each cottage has been designed and equipped to be your holiday home from home. For our younger guests we provide all the necessities at no charge, on request, so you don't have to bring it all with you.
We hope we have thought of everything – so you don’t have to!
Situated in the hamlet of Bryngwenith in Ceredigion with its beautiful Georgian Chapel, guests can enjoy the peace and quiet of rural living whilst staying only a couple of miles away from historic Newcastle Emlyn. Local history tells us that this quaint old town is the place where the last dragon in Wales was slain. It is believed that the dragon will one day return, so children need to keep a good look out when visiting the old Castle! The town has a good selection of shops, pubs, cafes, banks, takeaways and a hotel. It still holds a sheep market every week on a Thursday.
Standing in a beautiful garden setting the three cottages are furnished in a contemporary country-cottage style with with a mix of oak and pine furniture. Each is equipped with an electric ceramic hob cooker, dishwasher, fridge and microwave. For food prep there is a rather nice double width kitchen trolley. If needed more freezer space is available in the separate laundry room. The laundry room is shared by all three cottages, and boasts state of the art Zanussi 10Kg washer and super large Zanussi dryers for fast turn around of any washing you may feel the need to do! Shared freezer is here too, with a separate drawer for each cottage. Furnished with comfortable sofas and armchairs the living areas invite guests to relax and unwind. There is a TV with freeview and DVD player and feature fireplace. Upstairs there is a double and a twin bedroom with a shower room. Baby equipment is available at no charge, on request. Outside, through the French Doors, each cottage has a private patio area with wooden garden furniture. Oak cottage has a conservatory with cane furniture and a sun deck leading from the double bedroom.
Washing bikes or dirty boots is no problem. We have an area for that just outside the barn and a drying area in the laundry room for coats as well. Bikes and bulky equipment can be safely stored in our barn. For the car there is ample off-road parking on site.
