This holiday property sits within the Hafod Forestry Commission Estate, which occupies about 500 acres of the Ystwyth Valley.

This wonderful example of a detached, single-storey converted barn, adjacent to the owner’s home, dates back to circa 1810, and sits within the Hafod Forestry Commission Estate, which is a picturesque landscape occupying about 500 acres of the Ystwyth Valley and surrounding hills, some 15 miles inland from the Ceredigion coastline. Lovingly converted by the craftsman owner, Pendre Isa is an extremely spacious and beautifully furnished property for two people, boasting its own private decked terrace from where you can relax and enjoy the views and watch the red kites and buzzards circling overhead. From the doorstep of the barn, the estate can be explored on foot (maps are available for the five way-marked walks of varying length and difficulty) where there are streams, waterfalls and rustic bridges to discover. It provides an excellent base for exploring and taking part in activities such as canoeing, mountain biking, horse riding and walking, or just relaxing in a ‘get away from it all’ location. Nearby attractions include Devils Bridge, first built by monks in the 11th century and from where you can take the Vale of Rheidol steam train that meanders through the valley to the seaside town of Aberystwyth, the Silver Mountain Experience, an 18th-century silver-rich lead mine, and the Magic of Life Butterfly House. A 30-minute drive will bring you to the attractive coastline and all that it has to offer. An ideal holiday base.

    Great location but the farm buildings are being developed so one of the two windows looks onto a building site with portaloo, piles of rubble and the noise of builders and power tools so not pleasant to sit out on the deck. Well equipped for two people. Nowhere to put muddy boots or wet clothes -- really needs a porch or some such. The walking is excellent from the door, albeit limited to the prepared routes around the Hafod estate.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you were affected by the builders next door. The building work has ran on longer than scheduled. It should be completed soon. Thank you for the suggestion of a porch or somewhere to put muddy boots and wet clothes. We will take this into consideration. We hope to welcome you back to the cottage again in the future.

    Warm, comfortable and well equipped cottage with spacious kitchen lounge. Great location for scenic hilly walks, on and off road cycling and trail running. Adequately stocked garage shop a short drive away in Ponterwyd and Cafe with basic supplies in Pont-Rhyd-Y-Groes 2 miles away (Cwtch). Would definitely stay again.

    It is a lovely quiet location they left us a lovely bottle of wine but also two days out of date milk rubbish left in the kitchen bin and none of the little extras that was mentioned in the guest book the starter kit for the fire was two logs and a cigarette lighter the other lighters did not work the towels in bathroom could do with upgrading they were small bath towels and thin the walks were very good from the doorstep and the builders doing up the cottage next door were no bother

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your review. We are very sorry that milk and rubbish were left in the kitchen. This should not have happened. We have spoken to the cleaners and they have assured us this will not happen again. We have purchased more matches and lighters and have got new fluffy towels. We would love to welcome you again to the cottage.

    Absolutely amazing cottage in a beautiful location! Warm and cosy, log burner to add to the experience. Everything you may need and want all located literally within Hafod Estate so you can have lovely walks and really escape from everything. 100% would return.

    Lovely place for a retreat. Isolated so need to provision in advance but that's what we wanted. Were not bothered by the owners although they were available if we needed anything. Plenty of birds came to visit including a woodpecker that could often be heard even if not seen. Will almost definitely be staying here again.
