A stone’s throw from Wales’ famous Cardigan Bay, Y Felin is a former mill building which started life in the 1700s, and has since been converted into a self-catering holiday property for up to five guests. Visually stunning and a triumph in design and architecture, Y Felin is the perfect cottage for couples, families and anyone else looking for a charming and private holiday property. You'll also be pleased to know that the mill has easy access to pubs, restaurants and the whimsical delights of Cardigan Bay.
To maximise the views and space, Y Felin is arranged ‘upside down’, with the two bedrooms on the ground floor and the kitchen and dining spaces upstairs. The master bedroom has a double bed, chest of drawers and lots of light, plus wooden shutters and a unique window feature where the mill workings came into the building. The other bedroom has detachable single beds, which can be configured as twin singles or a double. On this level you’ll also find a small study, perfect for sneaking off for some quiet reading or catching up on emails. Garden access is also from this floor, as is the bathroom.
Upstairs, an open plan space combines kitchen, dining room, breakfast bar and general communal living quarters, with magnificent views of the rolling Welsh landscape. Above this floor is the crog loft, with its small library, bean bag, and even a small bed.
Everything about this delightful, rural, one-time mill suggests pleasing design, rustic elegance, and cosy simplicity. Stone and timber abound, light pours in, and a mixture of modern creature comforts like Apple TV, WiFi, and well-preserved original features combines to create a truly delightful space. Outside, there is a small garden, a barbecue for summer evenings, and even a small table and chairs, perfect for al-fresco dining.
Although the property is tranquil and serene, you’ll be pleased to learn that excellent bars and restaurants can be found nearby, dotted around the coastal villages and smaller settlements of Cardigan Bay. Head to the charming fishing village of Llangrannog for the Sea & Slate Gallery, a brilliant arts centre, before enjoying a pint and meal at the family-run Pentre Arms. As well as a cheery atmosphere and excellent live music, the kitchen here has won at The Food Awards two years running! The Beach Hut is also good for fresh sea food in an edgy setting. Alternatively, check out Pizza Tipi for firepit-side al-fresco pizza or El Salsa for the best Mexican street food in Wales, both in Cardigan.

What a fantastic place to stay for a much needed family break. Y felin is beautiful inside and out, you are catered for almost everything you will need. The decor is so well done, it was a pleasure to stay here. The garden with barbecue and firepit was perfect for our last night goodbye barbecue. The surrounding area is amazing as well, we visited 3 different beaches all within 10-20minute drive and they are all so lovely. Cardigan town was fab with plenty of places to eat and drink as well. I wouldnt hesitate to come back here in the future and im sure we will. Well done to spot and charlie, you have created something very special.
