. These two beautiful, adjoining holiday properties have been lovingly restored from historic farm buildings. Eithinog meaning gorse, (ref OW5), has been converted from a cow and calf shed, and Helygen meaning willow, (ref OW4), converted from the adjoining stables, granary and hayloft. They lie in the peaceful, rural location at the edge of the Cambrians, amongst 350 acres of farmland and with wonderful views, and even a panoramic view of the coastline from the hillside. Just a mile away is Talybont village with local amenities, including well-known pubs and restaurant. At the nearby seaside resort of Aberystwyth, you can walk the promenade, take the cliff railway to the biggest Camera Obscura in the world, or catch the steam train to Devil’s Bridge and Waterfalls. Nature lovers will appreciate the abundance of walking available, from the stunning Ynyslas Nature Reserve and sand dunes to the Bwlch Nant Yr Arian Forest Visitor Centre. There is also a visitor centre where you can watch majestic red kites feeding over the nearby lake.
Cardigan Bay is home to bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic grey seals. A dolphin survey boat trip will give you the opportunity to learn from expert volunteers about the work that goes into maintaining this Special Area of Conservation.
The Dyfi Valley and Aberystwyth area is indeed a special place, in terms of the landscape, wildlife, the people and culture, and the area’s history and heritage. UNESCO gave the whole area Biosphere status in 2009, the purpose of which is to help in the process of protecting the environment that makes the area distinctive. The Cambrian Mountains offer an ideal destination for mountain bikers who enjoy a wild and rugged experience. There are biking trails, walking trails and a variety of other attractions in the area.
The owners of Eithinog and Helygen have created two extremely well-appointed and comfortable holiday homes and you are assured of a warm Welsh welcome. They have been appointed Ambassadors to the Cambrian Mountains, an initiative set up by HRH the Prince of Wales to recognise high quality tourism establishments that contribute to the sustainability of the region. They have also received the prestigious certificate from the World Hosts programme in the principles of customer service. As well as this they have won an award from Aberystwyth University for ’The Best Aber Welcome’ in recognition of their fantastic hospitality. You are assured a warm welcome or "Croeso Cynnes" as they say in Wales. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
