All this overlooks the fabulous countryside and River Teifi, Buzzards and Red Kites are often seen soaring high above the valley or resting in trees and on other vantage points around the cottage. The owners of Godre Garth farm breed and show prize winning flocks such as Suffolks, North Country Cheviots and Beltex sheep.

Llanddewi Brefi is just 1½ miles from the cottage; a village on the banks of the River Brefi in Ceredigion, West Wales, it derives the second part of its name from a local legend involving two oxen. The oxen were hauling stone up a steep hill when one of them collapsed and died. The other bellowed nine times, and because its bellow was so loud, the place became known as Llanddewi Brefi (brefi meaning below). Llanddewi Brefi might ring a bell with some people, as it appeared as the hometown of Little Britain character Daffyd Thomas, better known as “the only gay in the village”. The village offers a shop and two pubs and the village parish church. There is so much for everyone to see; Lake Llynbrianne, Aberystwyth Castle, The Tregaron Red Kite Centre is just 3 miles away, along with The Welsh Gold Centre again in Tregaron and Llanerchaeron. Other local activities include fishing, mountain biking, walking, golf, horse riding, bird watching, stick making and The Dolaucothi Gold Mines.
