Our luxury holiday cottage in West Wales is the former Head Gardener’s home situated on the private estate of Plas Llangoedmor, which translates as ‘Church in the trees by the sea’. Consequently, this perfectly describes the idyllic situation of Gardener’s cottage. Located less than half a mile from the market town of Cardigan, the Teifi Estuary Nature Reserve, stunning Blue Flag beaches and the 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

Stay Like A Squire
Built in the 1800s, Gardener’s Cottage is a sublime rural retreat built into the wall of a 1.5-acre walled private garden. Which exhibits panoramic views over the surrounding country estate and the ancient St.Cynllo’s church. Plas Llangoedmor has 30 acres of fields and gardens of tranquillity. It is a Grade 2 listed house with a fascinating history, well documented in the Welsh archives. You can delve into a copy of ‘Squires of South Wales’ which we leave for guests to read, written by one of the previous owners of the estate describing the life of a Squire in the early 1900s.
Gardener’s cottage has recently been lovingly restored to create a flexible two bedroomed luxury holiday cottage in West Wales. With character, period features combining slate floors, underfloor heating throughout, exposed timbers & stonework with the very best of modern interior design. This refined Welsh holiday home has a large orangery style lounge with floor to ceiling glass bi-fold doors. So, this allows guests to delight in an ‘outside room’ inside and immerse the senses with the garden birds’ woodland chorus. Cosy up in the snug around the wood-burner on chilly nights. Or, relax in the sumptuous seating area after a full day exploring the Preseli hills and heritage coast of Ceredigion.
Our downstairs bedroom with a super-king bed really is a nature lover’s paradise. French doors with wooden shutters lead directly into the huge walled garden. During your stay, enjoy breakfast with a panoramic view over the valley to the woodland (where red kites have nested in the last few years) and Church and watch rare birds without leaving your bedroom, if you’re lucky our friendly pair of Wagtails may pay you a visit!
Superior Ensuite: leading from the woodland suite, a superbly designed shower room with cosy underfloor heating and a huge walk-in rain shower – indulge!
A double aspect huge bedroom with original oak beam ceilings, the front overlooks the garden to the Church and the other window towards the delightful Kitchen Garden of the mansion. Also, both have window seats to gaze at the views straight out of a Peter Rabbit book. Don’t worry, no Mr McGregor here, but there is a beautiful ‘Allotment’ themed décor. The flexible family bedroom can be set up as a Super King or a Twin room and also has a double sofa bed which can be made-up if required.
Luxury Family Bathroom: With a built in bath and shower, intricate mosaic tiles and welcoming underfloor heating. All fuelled by our sustainable biomass boiler.
