Glascoed, 7 Ty Glyn Vale Meadow Cottages, Ciliau Aeron

This is a modern, dog-friendly, semi-detached holiday chalet on a small site (about 20 semi-detached chalets in 10 buildings) four miles inland from the beautiful Georgian coastal town of Aberaeron. Our chalet is small, cosy and homely, and ideal for getting away from the stresses of modern life. It has two double bedrooms but one is set aside for our belongings. The available double bedroom is an attractive room with double bed and a generous wardrobe and chest of drawers. It has a bookcase covering one wall; you are welcome to read whatever you wish during your stay. If you wish to read the Accessibility Statement for the property please click this link.

There is a restful living room which runs into a modern kitchen, which latter has a washing machine, electric cooker, fridge with icebox, saucepans galore, baking tins and trays, microwave, kettle – in fact everything we could think of. It even has its own bookcase, as does the living room and bathroom sink area.

In the living room is a comfortable large sofa and easy chair; a nursing chair can be left out on request. There is also a modern gate-fold dining table with matching chairs and a satellite television with a built-in DVD player. You are welcome to use our large collection of DVDs (mainly classic TV drama and detective series). There are also OS Explorer maps of the immediate and wider areas. Throws for the sofa and armchair will be provided if your dog(s) would like to sit with you on the furniture. Dog food bowls and water bowls can be provided on request.

The chalet is carpeted except for the room containing the toilet and modern shower cubicle which has a laminate floor. Non-slip mats are provided for this room and for the shower. The bathroom sink is separate and alongside.

We have furnished the chalet with some of our favourite pictures (many nautical scenes). We do not go in for minimalist!

Outside is an enclosed decking (the rails are about 3 feet high) which our dogs love lounging around on in warm weather. It is a year-round sun trap. There is a lawned area to the front (unfenced) and a useful lawned area to the back which is unfenced on two sides. This backs onto pasture fields, and stately old oaks line the boundary in which owls hoot at night and red kites wheel over during the day. Outside (and sometimes during) the school holidays, this area is remarkably quiet – a lovely retreat. In fact the silence is intoxicating.

A refundable deposit of £50 will be required for each booking, over and above the cost of rental to cover any damage, excess cleaning costs, or use of electricity over the first free £15.00 per week. This deposit will be refunded within 4 days of customers leaving the chalet, if it is not required. Re: extra cleaning – an excess will only apply if the chalet has been left in a soiled state and needs heavy-duty cleaning. If the chalet is left in the condition close to that in which it was found by the customer, then there will be no problem. Re: electricity charge – we use the chalet regularly and we have never exceeded £15.00 per week under normal usage – the only appliance that is very heavy on electricity is the oven. For safety reasons too, please do not leave any appliance on when you are not there, including the electric wall heaters.
