The Owner Says
Features & Facilities
The shepherd’s hut has an electricity supply, a fully plumbed-in shower and WC and a kitchenette with a sink, fridge, dual-ring hob, toaster and kettle. There’s a seating area with a table which converts in to a double bed. Outside there’s a hot tub for guests to enjoy, a picnic bench, sun loungers and a brazier where campfires are allowed. Logs are provided/available to buy for £6 per bag.
The Three Spaniels site has a small woodland and meadow with a stream at the boundary line which guests are welcome to explore. Beyond the site boundaries, the River Teifi is a great place for walks, wildlife spotting and canoeing. The area is also a great place for mountain biking and horse-riding. Brechfa Forest is about 14 miles down the road and has plenty of walking, horseriding and mountain biking trails. The site is about 20 minutes from the coast at Cardigan Bay. Head for the closest beach at New Quay (12 miles away) to join a dolphin, seal and birdwatching boat trip, or explore the pretty seaside villages of Llangrannog, Tresaith and Aberporth a few miles south. You can join the Wales Coast Path for challenging walks or go coasteering, paddleboarding, kayaking or surfing.
Food & Drink
The closest pubs are a 4-mile drive away in Llanybydder but Dave and Miranda recommend heading a little further to the little village of Prengwyn and The Gwarcefal Arms. Their favourites also include seaside pubs The Black Lion (01545 560122) in New Quay and The Ship Inn at Llangrannog (01239 654510), both a drive of around 30 minutes. Another recommended pub is Penllwyndu (‘The Pen’ to locals – 01239 682533), about 20 miles away. A little closer to site is Lampeter, 7 miles away, with a number of places to eat and drink. The dog-friendly vintage-style Granny’s Kitchen (01570 421667) gets the thumbs up from David and Miranda. Newcastle Emlyn, 12 miles away, also has a choice of restaurants and cafés including the recommended Harrison’s (01239 711814) and The Riverside Café (01239 710404). The Plwmp Tart (01239 758100) at Penbryn Beach, 16 miles from site, is also recommended as a place to refuel after a walk.
From Lampeter it’s about 7½ miles to site. Head west on the A475. At the mini roundabout in Drefach turn right onto the B4338. Proceed about 1½ miles to the next village which is Cwrtnewydd. In Cwrtnewydd, turn left over the stream and head up the steep hill, out of the village. You will pass the primary school on your right. Just over the brow of the hill you will see the drive entrance. There is a tractor tyre marked ‘Penlan Ganol’ beside the entrance and a small copper beech tree.
There are regular buses into Lampeter and Newcastle Emlyn from Cwrtnewydd village, which is a 20-minute walk from The Three Spaniels. The nearest mainline railway station is at Carmarthen, 20 miles away. It’s possible to arrange transfers to and from the station, please contact The Three Spaniels directly.
