About Mike and Julie Cook
Mike and Julie have lived at Cuckoo Springs for over 15 years. We are smallholders having escaped from teaching and IT. We have rare breed animals and 2 horses and try to be as self sufficient as possible. We converted our 18th century barn for holiday guests in 2009 and we work hard to ensure you have a memorable holiday .
Mike and Julie Cook purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Mike and Julie Cook chose Newcastle Emlyn
We fell in love with the peaceful, magical location of this farm when we first saw it in January 2002. Then when we saw the beach at Penbryn we were hooked! The final decision to buy it was made February 3rd which just happened to be our wedding anniversary. Not many can say, my husband bought be a farm for an anniversary present! As you might guess I am an incurable romantic and we try to make your holiday special and romantic too.
What makes this Cottage unique
We are an active small holding with rare breed pigs, sheep, horses, chickens and a house cow. All of our animals are friendly and we encourage interaction with them (under supervision of course). Children of all ages can help feeding the animals, and older children and adults can be more involved if they if they wish. We allow our guests to enjoy our 5 acre wood and an adjoining 5 acre field with wild flowers including orchids and bluebells. The cottages offer a haven of peace and tranquillity in a secluded wooded valley and are just 4 miles from beautiful beaches and the Pembrokeshire/Ceredigion coast path.. There are a number of very good pubs and restaurants some by the sea and others in the countryside. The cottage has won a number of awards for customer satisfaction

Just what it said on the tin, really!
Clean, pleasant, warm and comfortable (especially the four-poster bed). I took Bluebell Cottage for a month in order to finish a book I was writing, and it proved a perfect bolt-hole for the purpose, just quiet enough but with a few comings and goings of a working farm to stop boredom setting in. Mike was indefatigable, and ultimately succcessful, in tracing and curing an annoying wi-fi malfunction.
Very comfortable and lovely location
Mike and Julie lovely hosts who made us feel very welcome. Lovely, comfortable accommodation in a super location for the family to explore the beautiful local areas. Thanks!!!
Mike and Julie were most welcoming and helpful. The cottage was perfect and the proximity to fabulous, unspoilt beaches made it an ideal holiday with our grand-children.
We had a lovely two weeks in Bluebell Cottage. Mike and Julie were amazing hosts and made us feel at home on the farm. Our children had a fantastic time meeting the animals and the carriage ride was one of the highlights of our stay. The accommodation was extremely comfortable with a touch of luxury. The location was peaceful and quiet yet only minutes from beautiful beaches. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we would love to return in the future.
A lovely rural location. Beautifully appointed and lovely and quiet.
We are near beautiful Cardigan Bay with it's coastal path where you can see dolphins, seals and seabirds
Our beaches are delightful featuring horse shoe shaped coves with rock pools and cliffs as well as long sandy stretches. The tiny sea side village of LLangranog is a must. The views from the cliffs here inspired Elgar to write some of his music and the views are truly magnificent
The wild and beautiful Preseli hills are near by where Welsh mountain ponies roam freely and there are many footpaths for walkers and an impressive iron age burial site with huge balanced stones.
There are many centres offering various water sports and dolphin watching and sea fishing boat trips are available from Newquay.
There are castles to visit and a wild life centre
where you may see otters and kingfishers if you are lucky.
