Tyddyn Castell is a traditional 17th century Welsh farmhouse, in the heart of the small rural village of Eglwyswrw. With cosy log fires and a friendly welcome, Tyddyn Castell gives a feeling of warmth and relaxation.
Tyddyn is the Welsh name for a small holding, or small farm and Castell translates as Castle; it is an appropriate name, as the remains of an ancient castle overlooks the rear garden.
The house is furnished to a very high standard and the co-ordinated soft furnishings are elegant and luxurious.
A spacious double bedroom and a smaller single room have the exclusive use of the large family bathroom, which is equipped with bath and separate shower cubicle.
Guests also have the private use of their own sitting/dining room, with digital TV. Here you can enjoy your breakfast or, if the weather is kind, feel free to have breakfast outside, on the patio, the choice is yours.
Breakfast is prepared using local produce; bacon and sausages are sourced from local butchers, who specialise in meat from local farms on the Preseli hills; vegetables are from our own garden (whenever possible); and jams and marmalades are home made. Eggs for your breakfast are from our own free-range hens.
Vegetarians are easily catered for, although prior notice would be appreciated. Packed lunches are also available on request. It should be noted that we do not normally serve evening meals.
There is ample off road parking space. An extensive garden surrounds the house with lawns, streams, an orchard, a vegetable plot, landscaped banks and a private woodland.
An abundance of wildlife also inhabits the garden, including many wild birds. The highlight of the garden is the wildlife pond, surrounded by native flowers. The pond is fed by the ancient and sacred well called 'Ffynon Fair' (Mary's Well), which is a site of historical interest.
Eglwyswrw is on the main A487 and is half way between the pretty market town of Cardigan and the seaside town of Newport, with its large sandy beach and fine dining restaurants.
We're only five miles away from the stunning Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, whilst five miles in the other direction, takes you into the panoramic Preseli hills.
