From Newcastle Emlyn, proceed over the river bridge and take the left turn onto the B4333 Aberporth road. Continue for a mile or so until you reach Cwm Cou. On the right-hand bend in the village just before the turning to Cardigan, you will see a small lane which goes back on itself called Lon Drewen (no-through road). Take the no-through road and Ger y Lli is at the very end on the right-hand side.

Additional Information

Our clients bought this property through us back in 2007 and we are delighted to be instructed again to market Ger y Lli on their behalf. Since purchasing Ger y Lli our clients have extended the property and have remodelled the rear garden areas. They have also sold off The Mill that once belonged to the property, however the 4 acres of pastureland with the River Teifi is still included.
