Alma House is a typical 19th century stone built Pembrokeshire cottage located on the outskirts of Abercych, a small Teifi Valley village. The cottage is surrounded by the pastures of an organic farm and mature woodlands,it is the perfect spot for a holiday in Wales. We’re located at the point where three river valleys meet, the famously picturesque Teifi Valley and those of the River Cych and the Nant Morw, the sun shines on the house throughout the day
Abercych is only a short drive from the sandy beaches of North Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion but offers the peace and tranquility of Wild West Wales with its un spoilt countryside. The area abounds with wildlife and is the perfect spot for nature lovers of all ages - many of our visitors have had their first sight of badgers, otters and kingfishers while staying at the cottage.
There are plenty of interesting walks nearby along a network of footpaths and bridle ways which start just yards from the cottage but one of the main attractions is the River Teifi, famous for its salmon, sea trout and brown trout fishing which we offer free of charge to our guests. The River Teifi is Wales’ premiere game fishing river, more sea trout were caught from the Teifi in 2004 than any other river in Britain and we can offer our guests free fishing on some of the best water on the Teifi.
The cottage sleeps up to six people and has a four star Wales Tourist Board rating. The accommodation comprises of two large double bedrooms, one with a double bed, and the other with two single beds. There is a double sofa - bed in the rear living room.
The house is fully modernized but retains all the charm of a nineteenth century Welsh cottage. It has oil fired central heating, a new fitted kitchen, a really good cooker and a large bathroom with a shower, bath and foot bath.
We have a wood and coal burner in the lounge, leather sofas and oriental rugs, wide screen TV, DVD player and a video. To the rear of the living room is a leather topped table and chairs, ideal for games or writing. The ground floor of the cottage has been extended to create an unusually large kitchen and living area for a building of this age.

There are spacious gardens, safely fenced from the road for children at the back of the property and room to park several cars. Across the lane five acres of our meadows are bordered by the Nant Morw and the confluence of the River Cych and the River Teifi. These fields are sheep pastures farmed organically and located in an area designated as a Special Area of Conservation, they're a perfect spot for picnics, observing the wildlife or just watching the river roll by.
