We stayed for 4 days at the cottage, which is in a lovely country setting about a mile or so away from the village of Llanrrhystud - between Aberystwyth and Aberaeron. We didn't go to the village pub or shop so can't comment on them. The cottage was quite cool and dark inside as you should expect of old cottages but the heating worked pretty well - weather was cool for May anyway. The cottage was well equipped, especially the kitchen and there were nice touches like fresh candles. If we'd had young children there were some toys and games which would have been very welcome. There was also a travel cot in one of the bedrooms. The bedding and towels were good quality but the mattress was a bit of a disappointment - bit too firm, not bouncy enough and you could feel the springs! The garden was pretty with a stream running along the end. It was a good location for visiting places. we'd recommend going to the National Trust property at Llanchaeron near Abaraeron, which has a smallish house, farm and lake and lovely little café with homemade food. Also went on the steam railway to Devil's Bridge which was fun. Best eating place we went to was the Druids Inn at Goginan - really good food (we had delicious lamb pie and steak pie) and super friendly staff and clientele - they allowed us to taste the wines and beers before deciding which to have!
