Dog Friendly. A huge (6,200 ft2 – 576 m2) spectacular modern five-bedroom spacious home (sleeps up to 10 persons and 3 dogs) set on the riverbank of the river Teifi with private grounds (lots of parking) and private fishing rights along our part of the river. Popular with three generation families, given the ground floor access bedrooms. There are two downstairs bedrooms, which are suitable for elderly and disabled guests, one is ensuite, a ground floor cloakroom and three further ensuite bedrooms on the two floors above. A large open plan living area with double vaulted ceiling above and most guests say, “Wow”, as they see the space in person. Just 5 miles from the golden beaches of Aberporth (the dolphins are regularly seen) and Tresaith. A mile from the picturesque historical market...Dog Friendly.

Popular with three generation families, given the ground floor access bedrooms. There are two downstairs bedrooms, which are suitable for elderly and disabled guests, one is ensuite, a ground floor cloakroom and three further ensuite bedrooms on the two floors above. A large open plan living area with double vaulted ceiling above and most guests say, “Wow”, as they see the space in person. Just 5 miles from the golden beaches of Aberporth (the dolphins are regularly seen) and Tresaith. A mile from the picturesque historical market town of Newcastle Emlyn (with its 12th century castle ruins). Suo Gân (meaning Whispering Song or Lullaby), Llandyfriog, Newcastle Emlyn, will simply take your breath away! Set in a wonderful position right on the banks of the river Teifi (Tivy), designated a site of special scientific interest (SSSI), just outside the bustling market town of Newcastle Emlyn offering three quarters of a mile of fishing rights with salmon pools and sea trout. A contemporary, uniquely designed, detached house, it maximises the glorious views along the river and surrounding water meadows. Finished to a very high standard throughout, step into the open-plan living space with modern quality, fitted kitchen with gas hob, electric double oven, microwave, dishwasher, two fridges, freezer, washing machine and high ceiling sitting room, the limestone chimney breast will catch your eye, while the wood burning stove ensures a cosy feel on chillier evenings. The floor to ceiling windows with French doors makes it feel light and airy and opens to a large, decked balcony terrace running the length of the house, the perfect spot to dine alfresco and listen to the river below you. One of the ground floor bedrooms has dual-aspect windows (one which opens to the balcony terrace) with views of the Teifi River. On the first-floor, the landing is galleried over the living area and the ensuite bedrooms offer wonderful dual aspect views over the river Teifi (Tivy) and countryside, while the Jacuzzi corner bath in the family bathroom is perfect for a luxurious soak! On the top floor there is a huge loft room with double bed and sofa, bean bags, open plan double shower and separate cloakroom/ wc. With its own gaming TV which includes Freeview and a DVD with wifi access to TV apps (including, BBC iplayer, Netflix and Amazon Prime - Purchases are rechargeable at cost) the loft room is always popular with teenagers who relish their own space. Spend your days wandering my adjacent fields or just messing around on the river, ideal for kayaking enthusiasts, as there is direct access to launch our two kayaks and a convenient outside WC and shower. (Two Kyaks, life vests and paddles are provided on site - Use of which are at your and your parties own risk) On rainy days, you can entertain yourselves with our board games, giant Jenga, the upright piano, the table tennis (ping pong) table or simply relax with a movie in front of the log burner. (Dvd player or TV apps including, BBC iplayer, Netflix and Amazon Prime - Purchases are rechargeable at cost). The riverbanks teem with birds and wildlife, with regular sightings of otters. Perfect for keen fishermen who will enjoy catching salmon and sea trout. Children will enjoy the kayaking, fishing and the rope swing over the river. You can walk past Newcastle Emlyn Rugby Club, which is good for a Sunday Roast dinner or a pint, to the market town of Newcastle Emlyn less than a mile away with its Norman Castle ruins, it offers a range of shops, pubs and antique centres to enjoy. Private Fishing on our bank - A local fishing licence is required and available at the local post office, Trout, Rainbow Trout, Sewin (Sea Trout), and Salmon. We recommend you book a local fishing guide well in advance, who will show you the best techniques and places to fish. A visit to the Pentre Ifan, a Neolithic dolmen which dates from around 3500 BC in Nevern, Pembrokeshire or the famous Cenarth Falls should not be missed, while the County market town of Cardigan with its farmers markets and facilities is only a 9-mile drive away. Book coasteering or take a boat trip to really appreciate the beauty of Cardigan Bay, which has its own resident bottlenose dolphins and grey seals, explore the glorious coastline with its many beautiful beaches, the closest being Aberporth or Tresaith between 5 and 10 minutes away by car, they are both popular with sailors and surfers alike, these beautiful sandy beaches (with dog friendly areas) have it all with regular sightings of dolphins and rock pools and even a waterfall to explore. An amazing holiday home that is sure to delight and leave you with memories to cherish. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 5*_GRADING_WELSH_TOURIST_BOARDMore
