Between Fforest Farm and the adjoining wildlife reserve there are 500 acres to explore. Walk the river gorge, through the reed beds down to Cardigan or into Cilgerran for a pint. Enjoy frosty, misty mornings, stunning starry skies at night. Listen to a deer roar, birdsong at dusk and silence.
Where do you find your luxury? Lazing in bed, wrapped in a blanket, woodstove roaring, safe and warm looking out across the landscape with the gentle patter of rain on the skin of your dome? Cooking & eating in the sheltered undercroft, watching the moon rise in the crisp clear air, knowing that you can step inside to the beautifully crafted comfort and underfloor heating of your crogloft? Watching the sun setting over the estuary while the river flows beneath the castle from the balcony of your granary loft, housed in a restored 18th century maritime warehouse on the wharf of the old port of Cardigan?
Restored in 2015/16, the farmhouse has the quality of a cave, with warmth, comfort and intimacy.
Massive slate walls quarried 200 years ago from the river gorge, full of memories . The big communal areas remain cave-like; cosy places to gather together, to cook, eat, play and just be. The kitchen is the heart; slate floors, massive open inglenook fireplace, wood-smoking oven. The five bedrooms all with private bathroom provide stylish comfort.
For up to 14 guests in bunk room, family room, and doubles.
In 2012 Lonely Planet voted coastal Wales ‘the best region to visit on earth’. That’s a lot to live up to. But there is no doubting that right on our doorstep there are magnificent landscapes. A coast walk, a beach to yourself, the warmth and crackle of a driftwood fire and a golden sunset are all quiet adventures to be enjoyed within easy reach of fforest.
Our hygge getaways are self catering, but we'll supply all the elements to help you create your own hygge. You can pre-order hampers of local cheeses or breakfast produce and warming curry or cassoulet to heat up in your kitchen.
Our 200 year old tiny pub, Y Bwthyn, becomes your tiny pub during your stay. The fforest approach to the mini bar. The fire will be stoked, the bar stocked, the rest is up to you. Last man out makes the fire safe, switches the lights off and shuts the door.
