Cormorant Cottage is a delightful, end of terrace cottage, one of three attached to Glanteifi House on the outskirts of St Dogmaels, set on the banks of the River Teifi and offering the most wonderful views over this beautiful waterway, towards the mouth of the estuary and Poppit Sands.
There is a front terrace where you can sit and soak up the views on a summer’s evening or dine alfresco, the bird and wildlife is sure to delight; you are welcome to wander the 3 acres of shared grounds which reach down to the banks of the river and also to use the tennis court. The useful glazed porch leads to a spacious hallway and the double bedroom on the ground floor allows you to enjoy the water views as you awake.
The lounge/diner and fitted kitchen are located on the first floor, the dual-aspect and large windows really maximise the view along the river to the glorious Poppit Sands beach and out to Cardigan Bay. Comfortably furnished throughout, it makes a delightful retreat for a couple. St Dogmaels with its Abbey ruins, shops, farmers market and several good pubs serving food is within walking distance as is the beautiful, long, sandy beach at Poppit Sands. Here you can join the start of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and explore this stunning coastline. From the top of Cemaes Head, the highest cliffs along the path, the views are breathtaking and you can see seals and their pups below in autumn.
The bustling market town of Cardigan has a good range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants and is only a 5 minute drive away. A boat trip round Cardigan Bay to see the resident bottlenosed dolphins, porpoises and grey seals should not be missed as it is designated a Heritage Coast rich in birds and many marine species,
St Dogmaels Market is held every Tuesday 9am to 1pm for your chance to buy fresh, local produce - www.stdogmaelsabbey.org.uk

Cormorant Cottage is well situated for exploring this rural part of Wales, whether by car or by foot! The ever changing view of the river is mesmerising. Locals were very friendly towards us and our dog. It was handy to have Tesco and Aldi across the river in Cardigan. Garden centre at Moylgrove was worth the visit for the food and plants. The food and service at The Ferry Inn was also very good! October
Had a lovely stay - cottage very comfortable. Did several walks from the pack. Also ventured further afield to the Vale of Rheidol Railway at Aberystwyth and to St Davids for a boat trip to see seals - well worth the drives. Ate at the Ferry Inn and enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Webley Hotel sat out in the sun. Also did 2 of the jigsaws.
We did a lot of walking including several sections of the coast path. We ate at The Ferry Inn and The White Hart - both good. Farmers market Tuesday morning was great - you must go, we bought loads of good things. Also had a tour of the water mill and heard how the owner accidentally became a miller.
Beautiful Cottage set in an amazing area. Had a great time. Hugo loved the grounds. Surrounding places to visit very interesting. If you can go we would recommend the Tuesday market in St Dogmaels.
Very clean and comfortable cottage with idyllic scenery and views over the estuary. Many pleasant walks and places to visit nearby, a most pleasurable holiday. Many Thanks
Fantastic cottage and beautiful scenery. Dogs loved it and we will definitely be looking to come back.
Cormorant Cottage is probably the most idyllic cottage we have stayed in. Panoramic views and absolutely dog friendly. The local pubs were good for meals and the market handy for local produce. Despite being 'out of season' we found things to do and see. Poppit sands was great for the dogs and the local walks. Very nice. Will be recommending to friends.
Lovely break again - beautiful cottage and gorgeous area.
We had a super week at Cormorant Cottage. Tommy settled in straight away! We really enjoyed the beautiful views from the windows and grounds. Fabulous walks in the area and we were only stuck in avoiding the stormy weather once - not bad in November! A warm welcome for both us and the dog at The Ferry - it's a real bonus that its open at lunchtime for food even at this time of year. Premier shop in St Dogmaels very friendly staff and good selection of basics, even local meat. We enjoyed the Bluestone bacon and stewing lamb. Thank you for providing everything we needed in the cottage. We hope to visit again.
Fabulous holiday accommodation, particularly if you have a dog with you. Owners appear to have thought of everything you could possibly want.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely views, four lovely days of sunshine, lots of interesting visits. Woollen museum, cheese making, gold mine and watching dolphins at Newquay.
Spectacular views - always something to watch on the estuary, spent the week walking sections of the coast. We will be back!
We absolutely loved our stay in Cormorant.. The grounds were amazingly beautiful and we had everything we needed in our cottage,We cant imagine how wonderful it must be here in the summer months with all the activities! We set off each day for wonderful hikes-Ceibwr Bay, Cemaes Head, St Davids and Mwnt amongst our favourites, We toured Carew castle followed by a cosy fireside lunch at Carew Inn. We enjoyed strolling strolling the seaside towns of Tenby and Newquay, loved visiting the church and grounds of Nevern. On our rainy day we drove to Pant Mawr Cheese Farmhouse for tasting, buying and consuming!. We loved coming back to our cosy cottage at the end of each day. What a wonderful place. Thank you !!
Had a very relaxing week. The views out of the windows are stunning-in all weathers and at all times of day. The cottage had everything we needed. Did some great walks and discovered lots of stunning scenery
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. A perfect setting and wonderful views from the windows. We had a cooked breakfast and evening meal every day of our stay, the kitchen being a great place to cook! The photos of local scenes hanging up around the cottage are a great idea! We enjoyed walks around Ceibwr Bay, Poppit Sands, Mwnt, Aberporth and St Dogmaels. Mwnt was so beautiful we went there twice! Lovely cream tea at Penrallt Garden Centre. Also enjoyed walking down the the estuary every morning with Lily our dog-no car needed, no walking on roads! Wonderful! Also had a picnic lunch down on the beach one day, very peaceful and private too!
Incredible views and amazing walks. Wandering along the shoreline to Poppit Sands was stunning, as were the Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion coastal paths. We highly recommend , and throughly enjoyed, walks from the "Walking in the Teifi Estuary" guide on the shelf, our favourite being Walk 1 taking in the Teifi marshes and Welsh Wildlife Centre. Walk 2 to Cemaes Head was also amazing, with great coastal views including hundreds of seals. Other great days included visits to St Davids and Pentre Ifan Burial Chamber. To crown it all off we enjoyed early evening games of tennis in the sunshine, a lovely place
Lovely cottage. The views are stunning. Newport is a beautiful place to visit, the beach is huge and was good fun for our dogs. The weather helped a lot, quite warm at times, so we were able to sit outside pubs.Regarding the dogs, most pubs let you bring them inside, The pub closest, The Ferry Inn, offers a good selection of food, worth booking though. Poppit Sands is walkable if you are felling fit, not much there other than a cafe. All in all a very pleasant stay. Many thanks
We enjoyed our stay at Cormorant Cottage and really appreciated the amazing and ever changing views of the estuary, We found lots of place to go without travelling too far, Ceibwr Bay Mwnt, Newport, We bought excellent meat from the Fishguard Farmers market on Saturday. There were good views of nesting sea birds at Pen Dinas and we enjoyed visiting Cilgerran Castle and the burial chambers at Pentre Ifan and Carreg Coetan Arthur. The cottage is very well appointed and we enjoyed dining with the wonderful views over the Teifi
We spent a great week in this lovely cottage, Perfectly appointed for great walks, beach with amazing views, The Ferry Inn offers great food, friendly staff and an amazing location-just a 5 minute walk down the road, Booked a boat ride to Ramsay Island from St Davids, which was thoroughly enjoyable-dogs welcome too. Tenby is a lovely little place to visit for a day trip, Highly recommend a visit to Pembroke Castle, We took bus to Moylegrove and walked back to the cottage-amazing views along the way, The St Dogmaels market on a Tuesday is well worth a visit-we bought great pies and pasties from one of the stalls, Overall a great trip and we will definitely be back. Thank you
Had a really lovely week, views over the estuary and having the lounge at the top make this cottage really special. Lots of lovely walks, with or without driving. Would totally recommend the cottage and the area, Thank you
