The Coach House, Cardgian is a tiny hideaway within the grounds of 12th century Cardigan Castle offering self catering accommodation which has been beautifully converted to an accessible luxury studio apartment with its own enclosed patio garden.
Overall winner of Channel 4/RICS Great British Buildings Restoration of the Year, Cardigan Castle (Castell Aberteifi) has a unique place in Welsh culture. It is believed to be the first stone castle ever built by a Welshman and, to celebrate its completion in 1176, Rhys ap Gruffydd (Lord Rhys) hosted a gathering of bards, musicians and performers, the first Eisteddfod. This was the start of the Welsh tradition of cultural festivals that continues today.
This is a special setting for a memorable holiday, lovebirds will adore the Castles rugged romance while lovers of history and tradition will relish soaking up the past from the ancient stone walls and discovering more about the Castle from the exhibitions. Look forward to lazy mornings in the Castle grounds, to discovering the unspoilt beauty of Cardigan Bay and to dinner at 1176, the Castle restaurant, or one of the many local eateries. Guarding the bridge between Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire, the Castle is conveniently located for exploring both counties. The Castle grounds are for the exclusive enjoyment of guests in the cottages and B&B accommodation outside the hours of 10 am and 4 pm except when evening events are held.
