Our hosts were genuinely pleased to see us again, and the place has remained that quirky blend of old and new that is so much more than the often bland interiors of the modern day B & B.
Finding our feet more quickly second time around we got out and about every day. A daily run down to Poppit Sands was invigorating, following the previous evenings fantastic meals. For up-market local food, '25' in nearby Cardigan is a must (See our review). For simple fare, Bowens Fish and Chips, 5 mins away is very hard to beat, the fish must be some of the best anywhere. The White Hart, 8 mins, serves very fine Welsh Ales. Further afield we visited Melin Tregwynt, a working textile mill producing fantastic welsh blankets etc with a modern twist. On a similar theme, we also visited the National Wool Museum near Newcastle Emlyn. Check with them and get yourselves on a tour, the character delivers this with amusing anecdotes and demonstrations of the machinery. There seems plenty to occupy close at hand too, we somehow managed to to fit in the local farmers market, and got to go to the Pilates class!
