We love this part of western Wales – beautiful rolling countryside that looks over the Cambrian Mountains in one direction, yet only a short drive from the lovely beaches of Cardigan Bay – and so we were especially delighted to find the enticing cottages and stylish eco-cabins of Treberfedd Farm, where you can enjoy a wonderful farm-based holiday in a beautiful hilltop location just a 15-minute drive from the sea at Aberaeron and New Quay. A working organic farm with Hereford cattle and Llanwenog sheep, it's a special spot, situated in a lush Aeron Valley, with far-ranging views over the countryside beyond and a night-time darkness that makes it perfect for star-gazing.
As for the accommodation, Treberfedd has four pin-neat cottages sleeping anything between 5 and 9 people, and two unique octagonal eco-cabins in a flower-filled meadow for some extremely luxurious glamping. The cottages range from a lovely four-bedroom farmhouse to a couple of converted barns and a picture-perfect thatched cottage. Each has rustic charm in abundance, but despite that they are all very well equipped with modern amenities, with fully fitted kitchens, open-plan living areas, underfloor heating and all the mod cons you could possibly need, including TVs and DVD players and decent wifi and three of the cottages have hot tubs.
The cottages all take dogs, as does the two eco-cabins. These are unique octagonal creations, circular inside, with large windows all the way round that look out over the valley. The interiors are bespoke and completely original, and more spacious than you might think, with an open-plan kitchen large dining table and a super king-size bed that make the most of the panoramic views down the valley, along with fold-down bunk beds for the kids. A separate cloakroom leads to a toilet and shower room with a rainhead shower. The unique design of the cabins not only blends into the landscape, but also serves a practical purpose, with robust insulation provided by grass on the roof and sheep's wool in the walls, while no fewer than sixteen scots pine trees, visible from the interior, hold up the roof. Underfloor heating powered by the farm’s wind turbine and solar panels also helps to keep the place warm year round and one of the eco-cabins has a wood fired hot tub.
You can rent as many or as few of these options as you like, and it's a perfect place for both a romantic holiday for a couple and a large family gathering, with a private dining room (with optional chef) that can be hired with group bookings. (They also have a function room and meeting centre for corporate and group events). The location is perfect too – not only with scenery to die for but also loads to do in the surrounding area, whether it's visiting the nearby coast or mountain biking in the Cambrian Mountains, or just hanging out on the farm: they have a a playground, sandpit and climbing wall, and they've recently added a wood fired pizza oven on site free for guests to use as well. You can also follow the two-mile farm trail through the meadows and woods, along which you can meet some of the farm's own animals. They've been breeding cattle, sheep and chickens here for hundreds of years, and in that respect nothing much has changed on the farm. We're just lucky that current incumbents Jack and Eleanor decided to share it with the rest of us!
The two eco-cabins can sleep a family of 4, while the various cottages sleep between 5 and 9 people.

Nature versus nurture? There’s no need to get into this old debate at Naturesbase, a gorgeous natural environment nurtured to perfection by its caring, sharing owners. So, come and help yourself to a hefty chunk of nurtured nature, and a slice of pizza, too.
