Sssh! Only the very few know about Cwm Hoffnant Valley. We like it that way! Rich with wildlife & bird life, this quiet & secluded valley leads down to the beautiful beaches of Penbryn, Llangrannog & Tresaith. The current owner has registered 30+ species of birds during her time here; many are rarely seen in Wales these days.

Clrhiw nestles in the woodland at the top of the valley yet within walking distance of a great shop, petrol station and the main hourly T5 bus route between Aberystwyth and Aberteifi & on to Haverfordwest/Fishguard. (Easy ferry distance to Ireland too!)


Cilrhiw translates to “In the Nest of the Hill” so it’s sheltered from North and East winds, and the land is South West facing. As we say in Ceredigion, West is Best!

Cilrhiw is the first cottages of three, which are in ‘Allt Hoffnant’. The other two are holiday homes owned since the 1960s by 4 generations of families who live in Oxford, Cheshire & London so we only have close neighbours for school holidays.

A great woodland walk of ancient, native rare Cecille Oaks are above us which we enjoy, and at the top magnificent views of Cardigan Bay all the way over to the

Llyen Peninsula & Anglesey.
