Visit Wales Graded 4 Star Cottage
Relax and unwind in this enchanting cottage, steeped in history. Enjoy the warm welcome, the peace and tranquillity, dramatic countryside and remarkable wildlife, and even gaze at the stars without the distraction of light pollution. Wake up to a stunning view of the open moorland from your bed.

Esgair Wen is beautifully situated overlooking the Ystwyth Valley on a 1000 hectare sheep farm-- Tyllwyd, on the Devil's Bridge to Rhayader mountain road. This road has been considered by the AA as one of the most scenic routes in Europe.

The cottage sleeps 6 persons, is attractively and comfortably furnished whilst retaining the charm and character of a typical Welsh cottage. The beams, the stone built fireplace, the oil paintings of local scenes and the old framed documents give it a strong sense of place. Originally a small shepherd's cottage, it has been a popular holiday destination for walkers, birdwatchers and fishermen for many years, with a high percentage of repeat bookings.

There is a grassed playing area in front of the cottage and a splendid 'tiddler' stream nearby which offers supervised children many hours of fun. Walkers and birdwatchers can walk onto the open moorland from the rear of the cottage and there is ample parking space.
