Far from the madding crowd

by Webmaster, 3rd February 2021

With staycations becoming ever more popular this year, as Covid restrictions limit international travel, the heart of Wales is the ideal destination to avoid the crowds

If you’re looking to get away from it all, Wisteria Cottage (or Bwthyn yr Ardd) in the heart of rolling west Wales countryside offers the perfect escape. While most holiday cottages can be extremely charming, few offer the sleek, five-star experience some guests are looking for. 

Halfway between Aberystwyth and Rhayader, Wisteria Cottage offers the best of both worlds. While it has a clean, modern interior, it also has a log burner, period features and even allows dogs. Plus it is set within three and a half acres of secluded family-friendly grounds and gardens, but is walking distance to the village pub, cafe and small shop at Pont-rhyd-y-groes.

Ideal for a family of four or two couples, the cottage has two bedrooms (one with a super-king bed and one with zip-link beds, so can be made into a double or twin), as well as three bathrooms.

The area is not only beautiful, there is plenty to explore, such as local hiking trails, visiting the nearby Strata Florida, a fascinating medieval abbey, the famous Devils Bridge, and the Cardigan Bay coastline is just a 15-mile drive away.

Even if it rains, there is an undercover hot tub, perfect for relaxing with a glass of chilled Champagne. 

If you are interested in hiring Wisteria Cottage or a different property in Wales, visit who offer 1,200 holiday lets from the top of Anglesey to the base of the Brecon Beacons and everywhere in between.
