Bwthyn-y-Gorwel is a pretty detached stone-built cottage, adjacent to the owners' home in the quiet North Pembrokeshire village of Bwlchygroes, 8 miles south east of Cardigan, and 13 miles from the lovely West Wales beaches at Newport, Poppit Sands and Aberporth.

The quaint little cottage has some lovely original features, including a high beamed ceiling with former crog loft and a wood burning stove in the impressive stone and slate fireplace. The accommodation is all on one level with just a small step at each threshold. Heating is by the stove (logs are provided) and electric heaters.

Conservatory: with dining table and chairs.

Bedroom: comfortably furnished with a king size bed, full bedroom suite and door to the garden.
