We stayed in Stable Cottage, a cosy cottage conversion that feels like home from home. Wonderful quiet ‘off the beaten track’ location which is good for dark skies, walking routes and surrounded by friendly farm animals;
Without sat nav you are very likely to travel along the A487 coastal road to Llainfran. If you are travelling from the midlands or the north of England, you will pass through Aberystwyth and Aberaeron along the A487. When you arrive at Synod Inn, travel along the A487 towards Cardigan for a further 1km and turn right at a sign to Caerwedros, Llwyndafydd and Cwmtydu (there is a church on the junction).
If you are travelling from the south of England or south Wales you will arrive at Synod Inn from Carmarthen. At Synod Inn you need to take the A487 sign-posted to Cardigan and turn off after 1km as described above.
Once you have turned off the A487, travel towards the sea! Llainfran is about 3km along this road after passing through Caerwedros village and going straight across at the next cross roads following the signpost to Cwmtydu (there’s a green tin ‘shed’ on the corner). We are about 600m along this road on the right.
Look out for the distinctive blue painted plough on the road verge as you turn into Llainfran. You will then know you have arrived. Time to relax!
It is the perfect base for exploring the south Ceredigion and north Pembrokeshire coasts.
The rugged coastline is a diverse landscape with spectacular cliffs, small hidden coves, smugglers caves and sandy beaches; a refuge for wildlife and a world of adventure.
The Wales Coast Path links coastal villages, beaches and secluded bays making this a haven for walkers and a nature lover’s paradise.
Dolphins and seals are frequent in the coastal waters within walking distance of Llainfran. Cliff top walks make this stretch of coastline ideal for dolphin watching, birdwatching or simply enjoying the fresh, clean coastal air. A tranquil escape from congested city life.
If you are looking to avoid the more popular and crowded coastal parts of Britain, or looking for a different stretch of coastline and new beaches to explore, Llainfran is the perfect destination.
Stable Cottage and Tydu View Cottage share the prime sea views of the Llainfran Fach Estate. A stay in Bwthyn Nyth Fach offers an unforgettable experience of 18th century Welsh vernacular history while Pendre takes you back in time to Victorian farmhouse living.
At Llainfran we have our own touring caravan site located in a peaceful setting above the main farmhouse. This is a Certified Location (CL) site registered with the Caravan and Motorhome Club offering spectacular views across coastal countryside to the sea.
