Aberystwyth is approximately 12 miles north of Llanon and is a beautiful coastal university town surrounded by a mixture of wooded valleys, upland forests , lakes, reservoirs and moorland. It is also the backdrop for an exciting crime-based Welsh drama, 'hinterland' or 'y gwyll' (literally 'the dusk') which suggests a dark and mysterious place. Filming of the drama takes place around the town and includes several landmark buildings and the actors film scenes back-to-back first in the Welsh language and a second time in English.
The town is home to the National
Library of Wales. Situated on the Penglais hillside, it is open to
the public as well as being a copyright library housing over two million
books. These include some of the oldest surviving manuscripts in the
Welsh language, and is a huge collection of works about Wales and
the other Celtic countries.
The Town's University
Just a stone's throw further up the hill is Aberystwyth University. The modern campus is spread out on the hillside over looking the town and is home to students from all over the country and further a field and each year it is claimed that over 3,000 of them graduate from here every year.
Lampeter is a small market town, approximately a 40 minute drive south from Llanon, and is situated in the Teifi valley. This is also a university town and in the 19th century became the centre for a great revival of the established church in Wales. The university, after Oxford and Cambridge is the oldest university institution in England and Wales and in 1971 became part of the University of Wales and is now known as Trinity St. Davids University.
For many years we have tried
to be as environmentally aware and organic as possible and thought
it only right to continue the ethos into our bed and breakfast business.
We use only Sonett laundry powder and stain remover to launder our
guests' towels, bedding, bathrobes etc., as these are free from synthetic
fragrances, enzymes, petrochemical surfactants and other 'nasties'.
We also use Sonett products for cleaning purposes which are all are
approved by the Vegan Society, eco-control.com and Certisys. These
are purchased from Treehouse in Aberystwyth (which made the short
list for the BBC Food and Farming awards in 2015) and where we also
buy our fruit and vegetables. Another shop in the town and deserves
a mention is Maeth y Meysydd in Chalybeate Street where some of our
toiletries are bought.
