Nestled on the banks of the River Meurig, between the rolling valleys and enchanting hills of Cardigan Bay, discover the exquisite hand-crafted shepherd’s hut hideaway; Angharad. Meaning ‘much loved’ or ‘chosen one’ in Welsh, Angharad sits quietly in the spectacular Aeron Valley, offering a profusion of peace, seclusion, and tranquillity; the perfect setting to get away from it all.


What’s more, guests are well placed to visit a variety of natural splendours including Ceredigion’s breathtaking beaches and entrancing mountain wilderness, as well as the lovely municipalities of Lampeter - the UK’s smallest university town - and Aberaeron - the gem of Cardigan Bay.

 

The gorgeous riverside location is filled with an abundance of natural wildlife from woodpeckers and kingfishers to soaring red kites in the skies. Listen to the majestic sounds of the woodland with birds singing vociferously and the gentle flicker of leaves fluttering in the breeze.


Guests have their own private woodland along the river bank to wander through. Help yourself to fresh strawberries, mint and herbs from the garden, when in season. The shepherd’s hut sits conveniently near the country road – perfect for exploring the area - although the road is so quiet, you’ll barely see a soul all day.

 

The first shepherd’s hut in Ceredigion to be award Gold accreditation by Visit Wales as a Quality Assured Glamping Site, this glamping oasis is as luxurious as it is beautiful. The cosy hut has a wonderful warming wood burner and is equipped with a small kitchen area, dining area, and a sumptuous double bed, plus a church pew from the local chapel at Abermeurig.


Outside, the magnificent firepit is perfect for toasting marshmallows beneath the stars while the pristine evening air is only permeated by the gentle crackle of logs on the fire and the soothing babble of the River Meurig. Guests are also treated to a variety of other outdoor facilities including a dining pod, drying room, separate kitchen, composting toilet and hot water shower.

 

This tranquil part of the Welsh countryside is one of the UK’s best-kept secrets, with its hidden hills and magnificent coastline. The shepherd’s hut sits less than 10 miles from the beautiful Ceredigion coast, which offers golden sandy beaches, breathtaking coastal walks and crystal-clear waters; perfect for swimming in summer.


Take a boat trip to see Cardigan Bay’s famous bottlenose dolphins or explore the coastal path to find one of the many secluded coves on offer. The Cambrian Mountains are also within easy reach, which offer an enchanting glimpse into a mysterious Welsh wilderness. This lesser known National Park has yet to be fully discovered by mainstream tourism and offers some of the most colourful and beautiful landscapes in Britain.
