About Abermydyr

The ultimate woodland retreat, this fairy-tale cottage nestles in the Aeron Valley.

Nestling in the magical wooded valley of Aeron, is this fable-like cottage, with its small arched windows and yellow façade. It’s thought to be designed in the early 19th-century by the same architect who built Buckingham Palace, John Nash. A world away from a grand palace, this three-bedroom woodland retreat feels exceptionally cosy inside. Dark wooden floors and exposed beams are met by a warming log-burner and traditional furnishings.  

Abermydyr sits on the banks of the River Aeron, in the heart of the valley. You’ll be close to the Llanerchaeron estate, in which you’ll have free access to its walled gardens, parklands and main house. 

With the Ceredigion coast just a short drive away, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches. Paddle in the shallows, discover hidden coves and caves or take in the view on a bracing cliff-top walk. The picturesque seaside town of Aberaeron, with its colourful Georgian style architecture, is just a 10-minute drive.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
