Why visit us?
Blaencwm Cottages is the perfect escape from the stress of your busy life. We are located just outside of the quaint town of Cardigan, and our cosy cottages and spectacular glamping pod are set in 4 acres of green farmland, with a backdrop of the Preseli Hills right on your doorstep. Y Beudy is a delightful couples cottage, boasting a roaring log burner and an exclusive en-suite sauna to keep you warm, even in the colder months. Y Frenni Fawr is a spacious and well-equipped family home from home with amazing views from the upstairs lounge - both cottages are extremely dog-friendly, with fully enclosed gardens to keep your pets safe.
We also have a quaint and cosy glamping pod, Ty Cnocell – sadly, no pets are allowed in the pod, as it is very close to our resident ducks and our newly arrived donkeys Hettie and Dudley. Both cottages have achieved a 4 Star Rating from Visit Wales and our glamping Pod, Ty Cnocell, has been rated as "Quality Assured".
We (Alison and Steve) have recently arrived at Blaencwm and are really looking forward to making this beautiful and peaceful area our home. We both hail from Surrey originally and have always dreamed of an “Escape to the Country” and Blaencwm is the perfect place to do that for us and for our guests alike.
Y Beudy (The Barn)
Y Beudy is the perfect place for a romantic get-away, to chill out and relax in our cosy stone cottage in the middle of the Pembrokeshire countryside. Relax in front of the log burner with a glass of wine (or two) or make use of the exclusive en-suite sauna - what better way to relax after a long day walking in the Preseli Hills or discovering the fantastic beaches just 10 minutes drive away.
Y Frenni Fawr (The Big Mountain)
Y Frenni Fawr is an ideal place to escape to with family or friends as it sleeps 5/6 people and/or cot in a spacious three bedroom house with one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and one single bedroom + cot (we can swap the cot for an extra bed if necessary). The house layout is “upside down” accommodation with a large lounge, kitchen and dining room upstairs, so that you can make the most of the panoramic views of the valley and Preseli Hills.
Ty Cnocell (Woodpecker House)
Come and sample the unique experience of staying in our gorgeous glamping pod with all mod cons provided.
Ty Cnocell (The Woodpecker House) is located next to our duck pond (with resident ducks Nessa and Stacey). What could be better than sitting with a glass of wine in your own enclosed garden area whilst looking out at panoramic views of open fields and the Preseli Hills. On those cooler evenings, why not snuggle around the firepit or fire up the BBQ for the perfect summer night.
