Welsh Culture

Bwlch Cliced cottage is named after an ear mark, which on sheep and other animals served as a sign of ownership. These markings, of which there are around 30 for different farms, were of particular importance in the surrounding mountainous terrain where animals were once allowed to graze and wander freely.

We completed restoration works in late 2014. Our furnishing and the commissioned artworks from local artist, Ruth Jên, are focused on the theme of wool, supporting the origins of our local village, Talybont, which was well known for producing Welsh tapestry.

Set in beautiful countryside and well located to reach coastal Borth and surrounding beaches.


Our local village is Talybont, meaning ‘brow of the bridge’ and standing on the Afon Leri and Afon Ceulan riversides. There are many old silver and lead mines and woollen mills surrounding the village.

Although silver and lead had been mined in the area since Roman times, it was not until the 19th century that the village began to grow dramatically; many of the terraces were built during this period for workers who migrated to the area.

There is a small Spar convenience store in the village for your essentials and also a pharmacy and petrol station.

Siop Cynfelyn, two miles north of Talybont is a community enterprise, promoting the Welsh culture of the area and providing all the basic essentials like bread, milk and newspapers. They also have a cafe with delicious cakes and the best coffee and of course a cheerful Welsh welcome.

Talybont is located about halfway between Aberystwyth and Machynlleth and is well located to reach coastal Borth and surrounding beaches. You will find a slightly larger Spar in Bow Street with a large choice of shops in Aberystwyth.

"I recently stayed at Bwlch Cliced for a long weekend, the location and views were fabulous. On arrival we had a friendly welcome with complimentary cakes and drinks, also breakfast for the next morning. The cottage was awesome, it was furnished to a high standard, and was so lovely, warm, clean and fantastic views."
