Please note: There is an unfenced pond on the owner’s land, 50 yards away.

The owners of Ysgubor Bach (Little Barn) justifiably claim that they are situated in the Welsh countryside at its finest! This delightful, 18th century, semi-detached cottage has been lovingly renovated by the owners to create a romantic retreat in what is still a largely undiscovered part of West Wales. Sited on a 9-acre working smallholding you can enjoy all aspects including rare breed pigs, sheep, chickens, geese and a resident Shetland pony. Ysgubor Bach, once a barn and grain store with thick stone walls, now offers contemporary country living for two in luxurious surroundings. The icing on the cake is the delightful enclosed garden and patio with a fabulous hot tub. You can sit under the stars and appreciate the sounds of nature whilst sipping on a glass of something chilled.
Many local public footpaths are available. One runs through the smallholding and opens up walking opportunities and enhances the owners designated dog walking areas with strategically placed picnic tables. Outdoor activities are in abundance in the area with walking, cycling, fishing and water sports all available. You are only a 30-minute drive from stunning Cardigan Bay and here you can explore the beaches and coves littered along it. Visit the quaint and colourful towns of New Quay and Aberaeron where a variety of events are held throughout the season. There’s a delightful choice of cafes, pubs, restaurants and independent shops. Why not take a boat to spot the resident bottlenose dolphins out in the bay? You can fish on the River Teifi or walk or cycle through the ancient Brechfa Forest. The bustling little town of Lampeter is just over 5 miles away and offers a range of amenities including a leisure centre, local museum and supermarkets, and a great choice of cafes serving homemade cakes. The regular farmer’s market is worth a visit and, if you are around in late July, don’t miss the Food Festival in the grounds of the university college.

Just 15 minutes further on from Lampeter you will find the fascinating Dolaucothi Goldmines (National Trust) where you can take an underground tour year round. Another National Trust property is Llanerchaeron just outside Aberaeron which can be reached on foot from the town along a level gravelled walk that follows the old railway line. The house is an elegant Georgian villa set in a wooded valley and is unaltered for over 200 years. The estate includes a farm, walled gardens and lake, and of course a cafe! Ysgubor Bach is waiting to welcome you to this most beautiful part of Wales where the local culture thrives and the possibilities for a lovely stay are endless. Beach 14 miles. Shop and pub 1¾ miles, restaurant 4 miles.

    Nice place for a break. Quiet and out of the way but only a couple of miles from reasonable shops. The hot tub is private in that it is not shared but is overlooked and is also in full view of the drive to the farm. Friendly owners.

    Well what can I say, such an amazing stay at Ysugor Bach. The cottage itself is absolutely delightful and the hot tub is great. Paula and Tim really looked after us and went the extra mile to make us feel welcome. I have no problems recommending the cottage and the owners, thanks for a great stay we will be back!

    Amazing stay at the cottage - hot tub was just what we needed, the cottage is beautifully decorated and immaculate, the hosts are lovely and excellent regarding communication and it was lovely to be surrounded by their gorgeous animals and the stunning countryside. Ate twice in Aberaeron - once at the Harbourmaster and once at the Cellar - would highly recommend both. We will definitely be going back!

    Lovely cosy and stylish cottage in the perfect setting for a relaxing break. Really friendly, helpful owners. Great to have a hot tub to relax and enjoy a glass of bubbly! Good location for exploring Wales. The only negative would be the creaky bed, but we were only there 4 nights so it didn't dampen the experience too much! 😀

    Response on behalf of the owner; Many thanks for your lovely review. Sorry about the bed, a new one is on order.

    Ysgubor Bach was the location that my partner and I decided to retreat to for 4 nights as a small getaway to explore the area. Firstly, the owners Tim and Paula couldn't have made it a better experience. We were able to get on well with them immediately and they went beyond our expectations to make the smallholding more like our home, such as fresh flowers and even complimentary welsh cakes! The local area boasts a small drive to several places. We travelled to New Quay, Aberaeron and Lampeter and each were no more than a thirty minute drive (even being careful around the windy roads). It was even only a 45 minute drive to the "Black Mountain" road in the Brecon Beacons. The hot tub was a perfect way to relax in the evening. The fact that there was no light pollution in the area meant that we were able to look up and see the Milky Way very clearly with a few shooting stars too! All in all, we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ysgubor Bach and we can't wait to come back!

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you so much for your lovely comments and detailed review, it really is very much appreciated and a pleasure to meet you both. So pleased you were able to see the shooting stars and the Milky Way, quite spectacular.

    We had a lovely 4 night stay at Ysgubor Bach. The cottage had everything we could need, cooking utensils, dog bowls and towels, tea, coffee and welsh cakes! Plus lots more. We spent most of the week either exploring the coast or relaxing in the cottage or hot tub. Paula and Tim were fantastic hosts and gave us a few recommendations of where to walk the dogs/things to see whilst we were down. Fantastic escape... just what we needed. Thanks again.
