The Forge has undergone 18 months of meticulous and loving renovation work to the highest standards.

We have recently won the Luxlife Travel and Tourism award for Best Dog-Friendly Cottage in Ceredigion and are also extremely proud of our Customer Service Excellence Award 2023.  Please follow us on Facebook or Instagram to see the story behind the renovations.

The modern tiled wetroom/bathroom has a walk-in Mira shower and wooden Japanese dipping tub with heated towel rail and candle-filled window sills, just perfect for a bit of 'me-time.' 

The Forge is accessed down a well-lit, woodland path from the parking area.  Approx 50m.  It is a gentle slope and a trolley is provided to help with your belongings, groceries or dog if required!

Bed through drapes


We have designed a perfect mezzanine nest-bedroom accessed by a spiral staircase, through sheer voile curtains. The mattress is topped with a deep-filled, sumptuous mattress topper.  The beds can be made up as a super-kingsize bed or two single beds to suit requirements.

The bedlinen is all super-soft, luxurious quality sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases from The White Company and Secret Linen including electric blankets for cozy evenings.  

Lavazza coffee machine


The kitchen is fully-modernised with Denby kitchenware, dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, fan oven and halogen hob and not forgetting the Lavazza coffee machine with compostable pods. 

From cooking a full Sunday roast to pizza on knees in front of the wood burner, you will find everything you require for your culinary needs.  Not forgetting that when you need a night off I can provide meals fresh from our freezer for you!

The living room has a woodburner, with logs and kindling supplied for a warm, toasty evening.  Smart TV with full internet access and bluetooth speaker.  There is a dining table and chairs, sink-into sofa and swivel arm-chair. 

If you need remote working access, there is excellent broadband speed and a gate-leg table which can be set up as a desk if required.

With double french doors which open out onto the wooden deck area, it is a delightful living space.



The modern fully-tiled bathroom/wetroom has a full-height, walk-in, Mira shower.  Delivering plentiful hot water.  There is also a hand-made wooden Japanese-style dipping tub.  This is a unique bathing event not to be missed, where you are cocooned in an abundance of warm water - a truly relaxing experience.

With plenty of fluffy White Company towels, heated towel rails and candle-filled window sills, this is the perfect bathroom for a little bit of 'me-time.'

Working from home


The external wooden deck with atmospheric lighting overlooks the private, enclosed, dog-friendly garden.  The perfect place for bird-watching, star-gazing or just deep-breathing. 

Beyond the garden are the extensive grounds, meadow, stream and fields.  The meadow and woodland walks are available to guests for walking or wandering, with dogs or without.   

There is a living willow dome next to the stream for sitting in, lying in or meditating in, the choice is yours!

What others think of us....

Fantastic 4 night stay at Glanmedeni. The setting is beautiful with gorgeous beaches on your doorstep. The accommodation was spotless and attention to detail in the guidebook makes everything easy. Jess went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed..... the welcome hamper was a lovely touch and the home made food delicious. We’ve raved about it to friends and plan to return!


The perfect place for a peaceful couples retreat, with the beach a 10 minute drive away with some lovely pubs to grab food or drink.

The cottage itself has been fully refurbished with everything we needed. I would fully recommend to anyone wanting to get away, recharge and reconnect.


The Forge is the perfect place to unwind. The building has been renovated to the highest standard with quality fixtures, fittings evident everywhere. Our host Jess was very generous with her welcome baskets of goodies. It was so quiet and a perfectly dark sky to enjoy the stars. A great location to explore the nearby coastal path with other walks just outside the door. We will definitely return. 


Absolutely loved our stay in The Forge at Glanmedeni, it was the perfect weekend retreat. The accommodation has been finished beautifully by Jess and was a pleasure to be in (especially a bed that’s genuinely comfortable!) The views at Glanmedeni are stunning and we particularly enjoyed walks on the nearby Tresaith beach and in the ancient Tŷ Canol woods, which were magnificent and only a short drive away (also a must see for any lotr fans!)  Highly recommend and very much looking forward to staying here again soon!
