At Llaethdy Rachel (Rachel’s Dairy) you can enjoy absolute peace and seclusion (see our guest's comments), with outstanding views over unspoilt Welsh hills. The cottage is a converted milking parlour set in the heart of Rhydafallen, our twenty eight acre smallholding. Designed (inside and out) with your comfort in mind the cottage has two en-suite bedrooms, underfloor heating throughout and for those cooler evenings or winter breaks you have the added comfort of the wood-burning stove as you relax on comfy reclining leather sofas. On the south facing decking you can dine alfresco, or simply relax, in private, with just just the sounds of nature for company as you look out over the Aeron Valley, which is a designated special landscape area.
Llaethdy Rachel is ideally placed for exploring Ceredigion, with Cardigan Bay, the Ceredigion Coast Path and the pretty harbour town of Aberaeron just a fifteen minute drive away. New Quay, Llangrannog and Aberystwyth, each with their own characteristic charm, are also within easy reach. For those who enjoy walking we are also close to the Cambrian Mountains and have a collection of walking guides and Ordnance Survey maps to help you discover hidden gems off the beaten track, as well as the breathtaking views along the coast path. There are two golf clubs within easy reach and for anglers, in addition to sea fishing, there are freshwater fisheries and rivers close by.

Outside the cottage…
The south facing raised decking with 6 seater dining set is easily accessed from the living room and, through the porch, from the kitchen. 4 sun loungers and a gas barbecue are also provided to add a little extra comfort on lazy summer days. The cottage enjoys extensive views across the Aeron Valley and below the decking there is a lawn which extends directly into a large mown area of almost half an acre(see the decking photo) where children and dogs can play safely a quarter of a mile away from the road. The whole area is for the exclusive use of the cottage and is securely fenced all round. Driveway parking for 4 cars..
