    “Willow Cottage is a lovely little cottage in a tranquil location.”

    Parking is easy right outside the door. We visited lots of local villages, towns and attractions. As well as Aberystwyth I would recommend visiting Bwlch Nant yr Arian Forest Visitor Centre to watch the red kites being fed, National Trust - Llanerchaeron and Aberaeron which is very very pretty. We would love to return later in the year when the heritage and cliff top railways are running. Thank you for a lovely staycation.

The property

Llanilar 3.4 miles.

Lying within the beautiful country estate and community of Crosswood in mid-west Wales is this charming one-bedroom, single storey dwelling, Willow Cottage.

Spend a relaxing and romantic retreat here with your loved one and delight in being within easy reach of many beautiful places, including the idyllic Elan Valley and the bustling coastal town of Aberystwyth, returning each day to the comfort of Willow Cottage.

Enter through the quaint stable door and be welcomed into the lofty open-plan living space, where a woodburning stove sits proudly before the plush seating, snuggle up on the sofa here after a busy day and watch the Freeview TV.

A dining table and chairs offers the perfect spot to enjoy a romantic meal for two, prepared in the wonderful, neat kitchen space, with a large range cooker and hob at your fingertips, as well as a fridge/freezer and a microwave, offering all you need to impress your other half with culinary skills!

Move beneath the high ceiling complete with exposed timber beams and discover the delightful bedroom where you'll have no trouble winding down, home to a double bed and a beautiful antique-style wardrobe for your things.

Choose to relax with a hot soak in the tub within the bathroom, or feel refreshed with a shower in the separate walk-in shower, a bright space to begin the day in.

Sip on your morning cup of tea in the pretty enclosed garden, with a table and chairs for some alfresco dining too, it's your own little haven to enjoy the crisp country air.

A great addition on any self-catered stay are convenient laundry facilities, with Willow Cottage enjoying access to a shared utility room where you'll find a washing machine , shared with the neighbouring cottage.

For those interested in the history of this beautiful area of Wales, head to the eerie ruins of Strata Florida Abbey where generations of Welsh princes are buried, as well as incorporating the Frongoch Mine Ruins into a walk too.

A lovely day can be spent exploring the Hafod Estate spanning 200-hectares offering a range of walking trails leading to picturesque woodland and waterfalls, whilst the magnificent Devil's Bridge Falls aren't far and offer an amazing viewpoint from the bridge over the deep and plunging gorge.

Find more natural beauty at The Magic of Life Butterfly House to get up close to many spectacular butterflies, before visiting the Bwlch Nany yr Arian Forest where you can enjoy seeing the daily red kite feeding and stop in at the lovely café for a treat.

Head to the lively coastal town of Aberystwyth for plenty of restaurants and pubs to relax in, along with a host of attractions; head up to Constitution Hill via the Aberystwyth Cliff Railway, in operation since 1896, this funicular will bring you up to some stunning views over the town and the sea, and don't miss a chance to enjoy the scenic countryside via the Vale of Rheidol Railway, a 12-mile-long track with Edwardian first-class carriages.

Spend sunny days on one of the town's two beaches, taking part in watersports or simply enjoying the sands, wander around the imposing castle ruins and delight in walking along the Victorian promenade and pier, before venturing up to the Pen Dinas Hill Fort.

With plenty of options awaiting you, Willow Cottage makes a wonderful holiday home for a couple's break in Wales.
