The Maerdy is the perfect choice for those seeking genuine comfort and the peace and tranquility of the countryside. Overlooking peaceful pastureland, the grounds offer plenty of space for children to play safely, and walks straight from the cottage doors provide bounties in abundance for country lovers, bird watchers and serious hikers alike.
Situated in one of the loveliest valleys in Wales and surrounded by woods and farmland whose titles date from the 14th century, The Maerdy was once the home farm of the historic Robert Peel Estate in the ancient district of Dinefwr.
Catering: Mrs Jones has been providing evening meals from her comprehensive menu for 20 years using local and mainly organic ingredients.
