A very lovely and historic thatched cottage set in the Cardiganshire countryside. Well worth a visit!
We had a wonderful time at this characterful cottage. We had lovely trips to Aberaeron and New Quay and enjoyed a beautiful walk along the coastal path. The accommodation was well appointed and perfect for four adults. It was refreshing to spend a weekend without phone and internet!
A very beautiful cottage, making our short break away in Wales even more special.
We have had the most wonderful time , the cottage is a delight and the restoration is wonderful. We wanted a quiet break and that was exactly what we had, we explored a little but most of all we enjoyed living in the house which was warm and cosy with everything we could want. Booking was easy , instructions good, no problems what so ever. Thank You for a very special holiday Jon & Jane
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this rustic cottage. After being married only the day before, we saw this as the perfect retreat to enjoy our first moments as husband and wife. We would highly recommend this cottage to everyone...just mind your head on the low doors.
A really great few days in a lovely cottage full of character, individuality and history deep in quiet countryside. Loved the thatched roof - inside and out - the real fire, beautiful old furniture and the cosy, homely atmosphere. Lots to see and do in the area - great coastline, fine pubs, good for nature and walks all round. And our own neighbourhood red kites flying over the thatch too!! And for our first UTT visit, we were really impressed by the ease of booking and simplicity of access on arrival and departure. Excellent!
Thank you Under The Thatch for a truly relaxing stay in this beautifully restored cottage, it was nice to be without wifi and the contstant use of mobile phones, we played games and talked! Lovely days out in Abereron, New Quay and the Devils Bridge. The children enjoyed being in the cottage so much that they refused to eat out and were quite happy with staying in with a takeaway!
A very unique cottage with so many lovely original features. It was great to come in from a long walk and get the open fire going. Thank you.
Troedrhiwfallen is an utterly enchanting place to stay, for so many reasons. The history of the cottage is fascinating and it has everything you need for a comfortable relaxing stay. We found it very cosy and warm, especially when the fire was crackling away in the hearth. The local area is picturesque and has a wealth of wildlife, with red kites, ravens and buzzards often seen overhead. The cottage is perfectly placed to visit local towns and beautiful beaches. Troedrhiwfallen certainly worked its magic on us and we hope to visit again soon.
We had a lovely few days here. Barring the occasional bumped head from those low door frames, we very much enjoyed staying in this rustic cottage and getting away from it all. There is plenty to see and do in the local area and the cottage is cosy and comfortable.
It's difficult to describe that property, if you don't like 'old' don't go! It was quite a strange experience, like stepping back in time but with all mod cons - wouldn't suit everyone that's for sure but if you like even the tiniest hint of history then this ones for you. I know nothing about architecture or renovation or historic properties, but, I can tell this one is a pure gem.
Super quirky cottage...lovely area of Wales...do your research and you will find lots of wonderful places to visit. Dog was fine there...loads of walks..but needed watching in the garden as access to road not blocked off. A great stay...would recommend.
Idyllic cottage in a very beautiful part of Wales. Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire delights nearby and we enjoyed evenings in the charmingly rustic cottage that has everything that you could want.
"What a perfect location and cottage - we're on our our Honeymoon and couldn't have found anywhere more romantic - a roaring fire every night!" - Jo & Jurgen Schumacher (from Buckley, North Wales)
"The crog loft is a simply wonderful place to spend an idle night under the eaves. Light the fire and lie back in bed watching the flames cast dancing shadows onto the roofbeams. This cottage is an absolutely excellent base from which to explore the stunning Cardiganshire countryside and coast. Mwnt is well worth a visit - stunning views, overflown by red kites and lazily drifting gulls" - C.D. (from Northampton) 3rd Feb 2011
"An absolutely wonderful restoration... the croglofft was so romantic...I booked for a few days peace and quiet and we got that in spades. The little touches, like lovely artwork, the powerful shower and lovely comfy beds were much appreciated. Thank you.' - Brenda & Katy
