Ty Derw is perfect for a group of up to 16 friends and family seeking a spacious cottage in the beautiful Ceredigion countryside to socialise, have fun and enjoy the great outdoors.
Ty Derw is a great place for friends or family to spend time enjoying meals together, chatting by the warmth of the wood-burner, going on gentle country walks or embarking on some of the adrenaline-fuelled adventures that Ceredigion has to offer. There’s a mix of sleeping areas that make it ideal group accommodation, but with a master bedroom just for two, this is a great property for celebrating an important occasion such as a milestone anniversary, where the special couple can have special treatment. Ty Derw is part of a family-owned holiday cottage complex set in 13 acres of private grounds and is housed within an 18th-century farm building that has been restored and divided into several holiday properties. There are pretty walks through woodlands and wildflower meadows straight from your door, while the site also features a picnic and barbecue area, a communal games room and a hot tub, plus a private chef can be hired to cook a special meal for you all.
Enter Ty Derw through the Great Hall, which is the holiday cottage site’s events space, close the door and get cosy in this relaxing space that’s perfect for up to 16 guests.
The contemporary kitchen has lots of prep space and a commercial-grade Range oven with a six-ring hob to make rustling up a cooked breakfast, picnic hamper, afternoon tea or a hearty dinner a breeze, while the dishwasher will make light work of clearing up. If you don’t feel like cooking, a private chef can be arranged to cater for you in the comfort of your holiday cottage, whether you require a fine dining experience or fancy a comforting family favourite.
Entertaining is easy in the open-plan kitchen/diner which is the ideal place to gather, eat, drink and be merry. Meanwhile, the large lounge area is the best place in the house for everyone to totally chill out together. With plush sofas to sink into and a lovely log burner, it’s ideal for playing board games or watching a movie on the Smart TV, while French doors lead to the patio area that’s perfect for pre-dinner drinks.
There are four bedroom suites that are individually designed to offer your group flexible sleeping arrangements. Upstairs there are three bedrooms. For the lucky couple, there’s a deluxe master suite, just for two, that features a super-king-size bed, a seating area, a separate dressing room and a private Juliet balcony. The second suite sleeps five guests and has a double bed – with the lovely touch of a skylight directly above for stargazing, as well as three single beds. The third suite sleeps five and has a custom-made super-king-size bed with a single bed over it, plus two single beds. And, the fourth suite is on the ground floor, is suitable for a wheelchair user and sleeps four guests in a super-king-sized bed and two singles. All suites have views, seating and a television.
Also on the ground floor is another shower room to ensure that nobody is ever waiting long to get freshened up.
The property also benefits from access to facilities that are shared with the other properties on the site:
The owners will welcome you on arrival and show you to your holiday cottage. There is ample parking at the site.
The holiday cottage site features low voltage LED lighting, a computer-controlled biomass central heating and water heating system, and efficient log burners with locally sourced logs or timber from the estate. There is also a biodisc biological sewerage system and a UV filtration system to reduce the use of chemicals, whilst cleaning products are environmentally friendly. Toiletries are supplied from a local social enterprise company and there is an extensive recycling programme too.
The garden is not completely enclosed which is worth bearing in mind if you are staying with young children or dogs.
