Brilliant, relaxing holiday again. Our favourite place to come. Lovely welcome pack. Thanks for a lovely stay


One week went by far too quickly. The cottage & scenery are amazing. The birds on the feeder kept us entertained daily. Thank you for letting us stay :)

Phil & Carol, 

Lovely, felt at home right away with everything we needed. Even brought round some freshly laid eggs! Beautiful surroundings which the house has really made the most of and perfect for enjoying walks on the doorstep! Would definitely recommend and be happy to stay again Thankw you for a great few days, we wished we could stay for longer!


Lovely, well equipped cottage with fantastic views. very tranquil - we enjoyed listening to the birds in the morning. Thank you for a lovely stay


Thank you Lee for a great week. Your attention to detail at the cottage is impressive. Really well equipped. A wonderful, cosy place perfect for some R & R.
We enjoyed some great walks. Thank you for the Freshly laid eggs for Sunday breakfast and your kindness in returning a precious teddy!

Jo Sole, 

Such a fantastic relaxing holiday with the kids and dog :) Lots of walks, trip to Aberaeron. Aberystwyth wonderful even in the rain! Loved watching the birds feed. Thank you

Maz, Steve & Family, 

We had a lovely stay at the cottage. Trips to New Quay and Aberystwythwith the dogs. Really nice cafe in Tregaron too - Coffi a Bara


We have enjoyed our stay very much! The house felt, open, warm and cosy, beautiful views. The kitchen was a pleasure to use. The tv with netflix in the evening was lovely. Thank you!

Kiss Family, 

Wonderful holiday in your barn. Views couldn't be any better; the accommodation was fantastic and we really enjoyed the many places to visit. Thank you

Ian & Tricia, 

Great cottage. Very, very well equipped & super location. Birds and wildlife fantastic. Thank you

Kay, John & Alfie, 

So, so relaxing. Bird feeding was our TV for 5 days. Beautiful house and garden... thank you so much


What a wonderful cottage, so comfortable to be in. We had all we needed and were able to relax so well. The views are amazing as are the lovely local walks. We covered the beautiful lanes and benefitted from some wonderful weather. Thank you!!

Anne and Herma, 

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It’s a beautiful cottage and very comfortable with everything very well thought of. Thank you!


Thank you for your hospitality in the most wonderful holiday cottage! We enjoyed our stay in the beautiful Wales with breathtaking landscape and especially friendly people! Thank s to Lee and John for a very relaxing holiday. Danke schon for alles!!


Excellence all round. The availability of the ev charger was an added bonus and allayed any 'range anxiety' - Thank you


Thanks for everything. It went too quickly. Can't wait to come back next year


3 fabulous days spent immersed in nature with family, laughter, fantastic walks and every comfort. Lots to explore next time 10/10


Thank you for a brilliant stay! The house is beautiful and Candy loved the garden and her walks!

Anne & Terry, 

Beautiful location & lovely comfortable house. We had a lovely half term break with beautiful views and lots of time to relax - Thank you!

Watts Family, 

Thanks for a lovely relaxing stay in your beautiful barn. Never slept so well! Extremely comfortable and everything has been thought of. Beautiful views; Thank you

Debra and Deborah, 

We've stayed in scores of self catering and this was beautiful, comfortable warm homely haven is the BEST. No need to even go anywhere, fill up the feeder and enjoy the nature, see the stars, listen to the symphony of the birds. All the windows mean the serenity of nature with you all the time. Lee and John have provided all the extra touches to make this a brilliant home and hard place to leave! Thank you (definitely coming back!)


Had an excellent couple of days! The views were absolutely breathtaking and there was lots of things to do within the local vicinity and the town was only about a half an hour drive away!

Both Lee and John were extremely kind and friendly, and ensured we were comfortable and had a good stay, thank you both!


We had wonderful time at Lee’s place. Fantastic views. The eggs from your hens were excellent. We hope to come again. Thank you.


Great place to stay......beautiful views ........everything you need to hand.......ideal location......we will be back.


Fantastic stay in the beautiful Ysgubor. Needed a relaxing week after Christmas and it provided just that. Lee was lovely and we all agreed that we could've stayed there for much longer. High praise from my 9 year right up to 85 year old grandparents! Really hope we can return in the future.


If you like peaceful countryside, then you must come here. The home is comfortable, cosy and very well equipped, and the views out the windows will have you breathing deeply and relaxing in no time. Lee is a very considerate and helpful host, with a lovely sense of humour too. Our two dogs were welcomed and we all had wonderful walks out the gate and up the track. Ask Lee for directions to the old slate quarry and forestry track for a lovely ramble to enjoy with dogs. All the locals are friendly too, from the little supermarket to the local Michelin star pub and the riverside farm shop and cafe. And of course, mid Wales is full of wonderful things to do. Don't miss the starling mumeration at Aberystwyth at dusk. Absolutely extraordinary!

Helen & David, 

Our second visit here and just as lovely - thank you so much John and Lee. The weather forced us to to very little - perfect!! Happy Christmas and biggest thanks for the goodies!

Ian & family, 

Lovely property with stunning countryside views. Owners delightful and very helpful. Great for dogs. Tregaron jewel in Mid Wales. Walkers delight. Will defo visit again.


Absolutely gorgeous cottage! Our family has stayed in a few cottages in the UK and this has to be our favourite! Beautiful finishes, amazing views (especially from the the top at night looking at the stars) and Lee has thought of everything around the cottage. Wifi super fast so the kids could still have their one-hour of tablet time! Loved our time here, our walks and excursions to local attractions, but the cottage itself holds such great memories for us, wish it had been longer!


Our third visit and first for Bryn. Beautiful cottage in great location. Very peaceful and everything you need. Thank you for the welcome pack. Lovely to sit upstairs at night. New Quay a lovely place, ice cream, fish & chips and shops all dog friendly. Pennau Craft shop - great food. Thank you for letting us stay Lee & John

Sharon, Jon, Ruby and Bryn , 

Lovely cottage and good weather. Views are gorgeous & lovely trips around area. Thank you


What a wonderful location in a beautifully equipped cottage. Great walking and sightseeing and we were blessed with fine weather. It was good to discover this very peaceful part of Wales which has so much to offer. Thank you for your generous hospitality and for David's birthday eggs!! Delicious

David & Suzanne, 

We've had an amazing time in this lovely house. The location is perfect and great fun for the dogs. It's been a brilliant couple of weeks of recharging and relaxing. Thanks for the perfect holiday

Shiel Family, 

Just leaving this magical place and feeling like we needed another week there, at least, to make the most of the beautiful accommodation and stunning part of Wales. The cottage itself was incredibly well-stocked and fitted to a very high standard and had everything we needed for our two young children and 3 adults who love their food! Beds were also super comfortable and garden was a delight with amazing views and a hive of activity for local wildlife. Thank you John and Lee for making our stay so lovely


Thank you to John & Lee for the delicious eggs.x It is such a lovely house in a soul-restoring location, the memory of which will stay with us always. Here for the heatwave! But it would be infinitely worse at home!!


We have had a wonderful stay in this cosy, well equipped & comfy cottage. Our dog has loved the peace (no cats) and we have enjoyed the stunning views. The area has delivered friendly people, wonderful woodland walks & coast. Even a bit of kayaking. Thank you to Lee & John for the tips etc' - very helpful

Sharon & Norman, 

A beautifully equipped house with the best made beds - flat bottom sheet - I've seen in years!! Been a lovely few days in a fabulous setting. Thank you


Well, what a great week. Beautiful location & surroundings, such a lovely house and warm welcome. Loved the solitude and nature's sounds. Thanks for your kind hospitality, Lee & John. Best wishes from us all.

R Llewellyn, 

How have we managed to neglect visiting this delightful part of Wales? The valley walk from Ty'n Cornel is breathtakingly beautiful as well as providing an exciting car journey for the last two miles. Ysgubor cottage is the perfect place to return to after a day of walking. Is there a better reading room than the mezzanine lounge? Wow, top class!!

The Roberts', 

Such a beautiful place and such a lovely cottage. We've completely recharged our batteries! Many thanks for all our goodies, we've been mage very welcome.

Judith & Ian & Family, 

We've had an amazing break in this lovely cottage with the most wonderful views. Thank you so much for all the treats too


A beautiful conversion, making the most of the wonderful views all round. We'd love to return at a different time of the year and enjoy sitting in the garden too. Thank you very much

Stuart and Pat, 

Absolutely lovely holiday cottage. Outstanding property in outstanding area of natural beauty. Real home from home with so much attention to detail. Thank you so much for the eggs

Osborne family, 

I can't recommend this holiday let highly enough - brilliant owners, perfect communications, beautiful building and an amazingly well equipped kitchen.

We loved staying here and will be back. A bird watching, star gazing, cyclist heaven!


From start to finish this is the best experience we have had. Lee was amazing with communication from the off, with quick responses and some great tips.The barn is delightful with great touches everywhere and the best equipped kitchen we've ever stayed in. The food at the Talbot pub in Tregaron was exceptional. Stunning scenery everywhere to cap it off.

Stay here and you will have an amazing time.

We've already asked to book again next year!!

Simon & Family, 

A lovely cottage in a lovely part of the world

Allan & Sara, 

What a wonderful week. Such a beautiful barn and local pub with brilliant food! John and Lee are wonderful hosts thank you for having us, have a wonderful Christmas!


Perfect countryside retreat with amazing views. Everything was as expected and more. Very eco-aware. Great communication. Everything was set up ready for our toddler, including cot, bath, nappy bin. Would definitely book again.


Comfortable, clean and tranquil cottage with picturesque views. We loved every moment of our much needed family break and enjoyed a very relaxing stay. Thank you!

Sarah P, 

Lovely cottage. Everything we wished for. Thank you for the goodies too!

Morris Family, 

The setting of the cottage was very idilic set in the Cambrian mountains. Unfortunately when we were there the weather was horrendous, but it didn’t effect our stay. We would highly recommend to couples or families. Lee & John were very good hosts and made the welcome very inviting. Loved the welcome gifts and our dog 🐶 loved the biscuits you left. Thank you.


Super clean place, quiet too, I can definitely recommend!!


Fabulous cottage - particularly the upstairs snug - an amazing space. Loved getting to know the area and this was the perfect space. Thank you for the hospitality

Barnes Family, 

Delightful and very well-equipped cottage with stunning views. Sitting in the Mezzanine reading and watching the weather, the Red Kites and other wild life became our favourite activity. Lee and John were excellent hosts, very helpful and accommodating with great communication before arriving. We will be back.

The Spencers, 

Perfect second visit. Everything we could ask for and well equipped for our 11 month old granddaughter too!! Thanks Lee & John

The Davies', 

We had a lovely stay. The cottage is very well equipped and has fantastic views over surrounding fields and hills.
Lee was a very accommodating host - she even mowed a strip in the field for my cricket mad boys to play cricket. They loved it!
It’s a lovely part of the country to stay in especially if you want to stay in an area that’s a bit quieter than busy holiday hotspots.


Just great to get away! And what a place to get away to. had a great, relaxing stay and enjoyed the scenery and birds! thank you.

The Dickenson's, 

Long awaited family get-together with 3 year tins, parents and grandparents. Ysgubor was perfect in situation & facilities & the Welsh weather even kind enough to allow 2 bbq's. The twins loved it all, particularly the wildlife and fresh air. We will be back!

The Humpherson family, 

Half term week. What an amazing house and location. Memorable sunsets from the 'upper' sitting room which I would love to pick up and take home with me. So many peaceful, local beautiful walks from the house. The cliffs south of new Quay, so many dolphins to spot.


Ysgubor makes an excellent introduction to the Cambrian Mountains due to to the location and amusing wildlife ie lambs gambolling and varied birds visiting. There are excellent walks directly from the property and it's well situated for visiting various local areas of interest ie Cors caron. Saw a pine marten at The Hafod. No luck yet with the red squirrel but maybe next time!

Mr & Mrs Bennett, 

Our second time here at this immaculate property. Typical May weather - sleet, hail, snow and some lovely sunshine made for an interesting and relaxing week. The leaping lambs in the field were an added bonus. Many thanks for the welcome goodies

Andy C, 

Lovely week, good weather. Thank you for the eggs and welcome pack. Lots of good walking with the dogs. Very clean & comfortable cottage. Would love to come back.

Roy & Family, 

Lovely, comfortable base to visit family after 12 months apart. Very relaxing, beautiful part of the country. Well needed change of scene. Didn't watch any tv, too busy watching the birds, lambs and red squirrel. Amazing swim at waterfall by 'remote telephone box' on mountain road, worth a drive, fabulous views

The McGuinness', 

We have had a terrific time this week. A lovely cottage in an outstanding environment. Thank you for the welcome, the advice and, of course, the eggs!

The Richards family, 

Thank you both. We've had a wonderful stay here at your barn. The barn itself was perfect for us. It was lovely and comfortable, extremely well equipped and has amazing views. I could quite happily wake up here every morning. We've been lucky to have some lovely sunny days. We've played lots of games together in the garden and have been on some lovely walks straight from the barn and met all the lovely animals on the way. The children loved these 'adventures'. The barn itself is well situated for some trips out too. We visited Cors Caron nature reserve, New Quay beach, Aberaeron, Llanrhysted beach and the local play park all of which were thoroughly enjoyed. We've loved having the sheep as 'neighbours' and the children have loved being on 'lamb watch' and using the binoculars. We've had a fantastic stay and look forward to coming back. Big thanks to Lee for letting the children collect eggs off the chickens every morning. You've made 2 very happy children. Thanks

Mike & Family, 

“Amazing spot for anybody who loves the 'Welsh' feel. Lots of fresh air, fine views and bird watching to be done. The top floor looks out over the hills, so tranquil! Thank you sooooo much for allowing us to stay at your home. We had lovely time, outstanding hospitality from you both and everything is just as we wanted it if not better. Again. Thank you so much!”


A clean home in a beautiful setting. A lovely welcome pack on arrival and good communication from the owners. Going home feeling refreshed

Westlake family, 

An amazing relaxing holiday, just what we needed. Thanks for letting us stay in your perfect holiday home x


A lovely week. Blessed with war, hot! weather. The barn is so relaxing and amazing scenery. No pollution and fresh, clear Welsh air. Visited cardigan, superb Aberporth and great beach! Walked in Hafod Estate - great waterfalls. Thanks Lee & John


A beautiful cottage, excellent views. Grandkids loved their room. Will come again! Thank you

Bob A, 

We spent another week at Ygusbor in August 2020, which is our fourth visit to this utterly idyllic holiday cottage in Tregaron. Ygusbor is finished to a very high standard with brand new sofas, reclining chairs, nice stone flooring throughout. It includes a beautiful open plan kitchen, which has all the essentials - it's a home away from home! The absolute best feature of Ygusbor is the uninterrupted views across Ceredigion, especially from the mezzanine room at the front of the property. You could quite easily relax in the reclining chairs and waste hours drinking that view! The cottage is spotless and always cleaned to a professional standard whenever we have visited. We hope to return again very soon.


Ysgubur is a wonderful holiday home, set in beautiful countryside and blessed with stunning views from the house and lovely garden. We found it well placed to explore the many attractions this pretty part of Wales has to offer, with great walks nearby as well as enjoying trips to the coast. The house well immaculately presented and our lovely host Lee was very helpful. Thoughtful touches, like seed for the bird-table, enhanced the tranquility of the garden and brought us great pleasure watching a variety of birds enjoying the treats! We would happily recommend booking this property.”


Perfect place for rest! Brilliant! thanks


Ysgubor was everything we wanted for our first post-lockdown family getaway. The cottage is stylish, beautifully decorated, clean and has all the amenities you need for a relaxing stay. There’s even decent sized glasses and sharp cooking knives (two of my bugbears with holiday lets!). Lee and John are very quick to respond to messages and are perfect hosts. If you’re looking for something close to the action then consider staying elsewhere. We were after peace and tranquility in a rural setting and Ysgubor delivers in spades! The views from the mezzanine lounge in the cottage are fantastic, best enjoyed with a glass of something in hand. I can recommend the spectacular national showcaves (about 90 mins away) which were great on a rainy day - of which West Wales is not short of course. We also visited Elan Valley to marvel at the beautiful scenery and impressive dams on the reservoirs. I would recommend staying here to anyone who wants to immerse themselves in the Welsh countryside. We shall return!


A well equipped, comfortable cottage in a beautiful secluded spot with lovely views. The upstairs living area is the perfect place to sit and read on a rainy day and for watching the red kites and buzzards soaring above the valley in better weather.


We all had a fantastic relaxing holiday - thank you! Cottage is amazing & views stunning. Will recommend to friends and family back home. Would love to return in summer for bbq's in garden. P.S Thank you so much for the welcome basket, cake & Roxy's treats - much appreciated x


Travelled through storm Ciara to get here. Had a bit of everything, weather wise - rain, wind, hail, snow, sunshine. Great views and loved all the birds. Visited Bwlch y Geuffordd Gdns, Bronant - really interesting but better in the summer. Thank you


“Great cottage in a stunning location. Would definitely recommend staying here, and Lee was a great host!”


Beautiful barn with stunning views. Tregaron is walkable from the barn, and the owners have details of lots of walks around the area. The barn itself is equipped with everything you could want, beautiful bathrooms, comfy sofas and beds. Can't fault it at all and will definitely go back!

Ian and Gill, 

Had three great nights, weather dry, frost in the mornings. Views just great. Must come back in the summer. The cake was very nice, thanks

Christine and Ron, 

A fabulous stay in a place that's really had some thought gone into it. Perfect peace and tranquility in a great location. I'm sure we'll be back. ps Thanks for the eggs and welcome basket - nice thought! And Ted's treats!


A perfect cottage location for a perfect getaway! Thank you for the delicious eggs - what a treat! many thanks!


The perfect holiday cottage in the perfect location! We searched high and low for a peaceful place in gorgeous Wales and we found it! Due to both our boys being rescue dogs and our youngest one still very nervous of strangers both Lee & John respected that and gave us privacy which made our week very relaxing for us and the dogs. The cottage had everything needed for a comfortable stay and cosy evenings in after adventure filled days exploring. Thank you again for a perfect holiday making some irreplaceable memories with our boys


Thank you for a lovely stay in your beautiful barn. Everything you need is here, you have put so much thought into the whole experience. Amazing!


Absolutely stunning views from all angles. The perfect getaway and break from busy life. Thank you Lee for such an easy check in. The space has everything you need for a home away from home.


A lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings. best equipped cottage we've stayed in. We saw the Golden Eagle, Lee! Thank you for the welcome pack and eggs. A comfortable week despite the 'challenging' weather. A really top notch cottage that we hope to revisit :)


Thank you for your hospitality, the treats (human and canine) and the fresh eggs. Thea loves the field and the garden . A lovely cottage in a gorgeous location. We hope to be back and will be recommending to friends and family.


Just Brilliant!! :)

Nici and Family, 

Loved the location. View was amazing. Room was very big decent size came with everything you need including a mini fridge that was great for bottles.


Immaculate, beautiful accommodation with fantastic views and thoughtful hosts. Everything you could need and a very warm welcome for the dog too! Highly recommended.

P Rowley, 

We had such a wonderful time in this wonderful cottage. We especially enjoyed the beaches to the north f New Quey and the walk on Cors caron. Thanks for your hospitality!


Clean. Tranquil. Peaceful. Beautiful breakfast basket. Perfect hosts.
Our 2nd visit, definitely not our last!


What a wonderful cottage and holiday we have had. Beautiful views and lovely garden. Peaceful and relaxing, we love the upper lounge. Thank you Lee and John for the goodies xx

Fisher family, 

Great place to view the local wildlife and walks up the road add to this with ponds and streams as well as excellent views. Thanks to Lee for the suggestions for local walks and wildlife reserves

T Taylor, 

Thanks for letting us stay here, we've had a lovely week. A mix of weather but we've enjoyed it. Nice views from the living room made for a couple of lazy afternoons. Recommend going to Riverbank cafe just outside of Tregaron for some

The West's, 

Cottage superb, John and Lee perfect hosts. had a lovely week. Enjoyed many walks in the area and loved the steam train ride to Devil's Bridge. Fantastic part of wales to explore.

Jackie and Dave, 

We have had a wonderful week and this beautiful cottage was the perfect base. Thank you to Lee for all your recommendations of places to visit and see. I just wish we could stay longer and to top off a perfect week we watched the eagle for an entire afternoon.

The Coxhills, 

The quality of the bedding, comfortable firm bed and facilities were excellent. The Hamper breakfast included warmed croissants and freshly cooked bacon rolls which were great. The bedroom suite had fantastic views and a beautiful garden to enjoy.


Breakfast and hosts were superb. Very dog friendly and full use of a field was available. The views were lovely with lots of wildlife as well.

R Blackler, 

Great room with fantastic views, spotless room/ bathroom, tasty breakfast basket, French doors onto beautiful garden, easy parking and perfect hosts.
Thought hard but couldn't think of anything that could have been better...even the weather was perfect!

Mr Tyler, 

Thank you for a wonderful week. The cottage is amazing and everything we'd hoped for. We've enjoyed the beautiful views and watching the weather and our dogs love the garden and local walks. We will be back!

Marc, Tracey, Poppy and Ted, 

Our second visit and just as lovely! Such a relaxing and well equipped cottage with warm and welcoming hosts. Many thanks, see you again

Martyn and Jane, 

We had a lovely stay. location very peaceful and beautiful. Would definitely stay again.


Absolutely great time!! Quiet place, beautiful views and many attractions around

Murdzek family, 

Lovely B&B, nice people, dog friendly, great place to stay. The large windows in the room look out over the garden and the valley. Lots of birdlife and stunning views at breakfast time. A bit like sitting in your own, private bird hide, but warmer and very comfortable. Good quality bed and comfy mattress and everything was clean and well cared for. What a lovely place to stay - couldn't fault it. Highly recommended


Fantastic week - we all had a great time. Really enjoyed the local walks, John and Lee's maps are great

The Fergusons, 

The breakfast was plentiful, and well presented with 4 choices. Nothing was too much trouble and the hosts were very friendly.
The views from the garden and room is astonishing, and the wildlife is close at hand including Kites flying overhead, all in all a great experience


We've had a wonderful week - such a relaxing place to stay. We've loved the views and local walks and bike rides. Can't wait to come back next year!

Cath and family, 

Wonderful stress-free week in this lovely cottage which has everything you need and more. Great views, very peaceful and loved watching the new born lambs playing in the field. Weather was brilliant too, thank you Lee and John

Sue P, 

Fabulous week for our 6th wedding anniversary. Dogs loved it. have been to to a lovely craft shop and cafe called Pennau at Bow St. Thank you

Jon and Sharon, 

Beautiful accommodation, the barn was fantastic and decorated to a very high standard and spotlessly clean, no need to take anything with you as the owner has thought of everything. The views outside the window were breath taking and no nicer feeling waking up each morning to hearing the birds singing. would highly recommend this place for a wonderful relaxing holiday


Fabulous accommodation that met all our needs. Very pet friendly, Millie loved the secure field and local walks. Very enjoyable stay, great views - that would change every season


Just back from a winter break at Ysgubor. I have often done the same elsewhere and can with some authority say that this is one of the best. Stunning views, well equipped house, warm everywhere. The glass gallery room is a particular plus. The hosts are helpful, friendly and enthusiastic about their area. Stay! You won't be disappointed!

Sally Southall, 

Absolutely fabulous
We had a fabulous time! The cottage is absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean, all amenities provided and the hosts were very welcoming. We would definitely recommend this as a place to stay-ideal for a weekend getaway-very peaceful with beautiful scenery


A truly beautiful place with amazing views. Stylish design, lots of space/light and plenty of picture windows to enjoy the scenery from yet still cozy for the evenings. The choice of lounges is a wonderful bonus and the stars we’re breathtaking viewed through the gallery upstairs. Beds were lovely, the house really well equipped; books, dvds and local info all thoughtfully chosen and spotlessly clean throughout. Great hosts and location is brilliant for everything from local village, towns to seaside. We felt relaxed the moment we arrived and will definitely be back!

Gemma M, 

We have visited "Ysgubor" on three separate occasions now and consider this our second home... Ysgubor and Nant yr Onnen is nestled in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains, on the edge of the quaint town of Tregaron. This picturesque property is surrounded by beautiful scenery, with access to some truly wonderful walks - ideal for dogs! The cottage decor and furniture is to an extremely high standard, with the owners Lee and John conscientiously making sure cleanliness of the property is meticulous.. We love the 'homely' feel of the property, garden and it's location and wish we could live there permanently. Thanks Lee and John for always being accommodating to us...


My family and I had a lovely time staying here in the gorgeous, spacious old barn . Well equipped and very comfortable. John and Lorilee were very helpful and easygoing.The lovely small town of Tregaron is within walking distance if you need the shops ( or a pub ) . Relax, unwind and enjoy the beautiful surroundings that nature can provide. A+.


Weather so kind. Walking in T-shirts in November! The barn is v comfortable & well equipped. Thanks

Kathryn & Martin, 

Greeted with a warm welcome from the owner into this wonderful, relaxing property. Although the weather was poor throughout our stay, it was cozy, homely and well equipped inside. This included a good size LCD TV, always a must when the weather is poor. The internet connection, although not speedy, was fine for emailing. Everything was laid out logically, good kitchen equipment and adequate dining area. The main attraction, for us, the mezzanine in which to relax, read, watch the clouds go by or even watch shooting stars at night through the huge roof windows. This property is one of the nicest we have ever stayed in. Plenty of wildlife - literally on the doorstep - and amazing views! Very highly recommended - looking forward to our next visit.


Came for 37th wedding anniversary! Lousy weather but a warm welcome, well equipped and comfortable cottage. Made for a wonderful and relaxing break. We will be back in the summer. Thank you

Jane & Martyn, 

What an amazing holiday cottage in a beautiful part of Wales. Had a great week, helped by lovely weather. Have explored all over and fallen in love with Wales. Thank you

The Chastons, 

Beautiful holiday property in a wonderful scenic part of Wales. Very well equipped and comfortable with adequate local amenities. Owners were very welcoming and helpful. We would definitely return.


The cottage was absolutely superb. It was of a very high standard, commanding fantastic views and ideally placed to explore mid Wales. Lee and John were the perfect hosts, informative, helpful but to not intrusive. We would definitely recommend the cottage and seriously considering booking for next year.


Great location for exploring! Brilliant views and fantastic weather all week. Holiday home was immaculate and very well equipped. John and Lee were both very friendly and welcoming. Definitely will be coming back again!

Marc, Jo and family, 

This is an absolute gem of a cottage - not so much a cottage but a deceptively large property which the photographs do not do justice to the space. The different areas are really useful to provide relaxation for different activities, the upstairs gallery area is a must for a quiet read and star gazing! The garden is spacious and enclosed for pets. The owners do live next door and provide support, guidance and advice, they are very friendly. Watch out for baby hedgehogs and please advise Lee if you find one particularly now - we did and it was rescued and made safe with 2 of its siblings. There is so much to do in the area but do be prepared to travel about an hour to everywhere - a must do is Devils Bridge, watching dolphins in New Quay, the costal villages and towns, so much! Would not hesitate to stay again and would recommend for couples, families, friends and pets alike.


Just Brilliant!!

The Jones', 

Best B and B we've ever stayed in
Beautiful setting..Clean comfortable and thoughtfully laid out with a table and chairs to enjoy breakfast looking over the hills. Breakfast hamper delicious. Nothing too much trouble for hosts


We have had a wonderful week here! Ysgubor is a lovely place to stay - I especially LOVE the upstairs lounge. Thank you for everything, comfortable, spacious, great views

The Masters, 

I loved the tasteful decor and the large picture window looking out across spectacular countryside.

It's great for walks in the peaceful countryside, birdwatching, stargazing and having time away from urban life.

We loved the rural location in lovely countryside with fine views of hills, woods and pastures. Last night the stars were magnificent. I haven't seen such a glorious display for years.


Amazing hosts & lovely location with stunning views. Lee & John were wonderful hosts. The room was beautiful & the outlook was amazing.


Amazing property. So peaceful 5 star

Stayed here the last week of August and had an amazing time. The owners Lee and John are so lovely and really care that you have a lovely holiday. Our dog Lola was well catered for and loved running around the field by the cottage. Lovely welcoming gift basket which included dog treats. Just lovely touches that make your holiday. Thank you so much for a lovely relaxing break. The Crane family xx


Lovely holiday home, thank you. Highly recommend Devil'd Bridge and paddle boarding at New Quay. Another experience was The Butterfly House. Not much sunshine but we have enjoyed our visit

The Humphrey family, and Buddy!, 

Delightful B&B
We spent four nights in this fabulous B&B. Having mobility issues I’m always a little concerned about whether the venue will meet my requirements. Having spoken beforehand I was reassured and wasn’t disappointed. Entry through double French doors with a small step was fine. The room was large enough to move about in easily with a walking frame and the shower over the bath was perfect used in conjunction with a bath board and portable grab handle which I took with me. Having breakfast served in the room was perfect for me and what a breakfast! I’ll miss that basket of goodies! Spotlessly clean and a beautiful setting made this the perfect getaway.The hosts were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you both for a perfect relaxing break.


Lovely B & B in a peaceful location
A modern spacious room with beautiful views in an extremely peaceful location. The breakfast basket had plenty of choices with fresh fruit and freshly cooked croissants. All very tasty. Would definitely visit again.


Thank you for your hospitality and having us at Ysgubor. Very convenient, cosy, perfectly equipped - we felt quite at home here! We had a great week, hikes a lot, cycled, visited some towns, a castle and the coast. Just a perfect holiday week in the beautiful, peaceful establishment!!

Isabelle Lambeau , 

Lovely B & B with beautiful views from the room in a tranquil and very private location. Not just dog-friendly, but dog-welcoming. Breakfast hamper arrived on the dot with a great choice and generous amounts to start the day


Beautiful peaceful location. Top class breakfast hamper served exactly at the time I requested. Hosts were most considerate of my accompanying dog.


Host Lee was lovely and had great tips for walks and eating. The location is so beautiful and peaceful... Such a pleasure to watch the birds in the garden with the woods and mountains beyond. There's a pretty footpath down the valley to Tregaron if you want to visit the local pub for dinner (20 mins walk)


Great week with amazing views. We have seen the top of Snowdon on the train, seen castles, been hiking and bathing. Great cottage, thank you

Family Molbach, 

What a hidden gem this place is! Absolutely stunning views from the room and garden. Lee and John are welcoming and really lovely people. Every detail was thought about. Winston even had some doggy treats on arrival with a towel (which we had forgotten!)
The room was spacious, pristine and very nicely decorated. The breakfast is amazing!
This is hands down the best B&B I have ever stayed in.
We can't wait to come back soon. Thank you both for an unforgettable 1st wedding anniversary stay :)
Love from the Dugmores x

Fi, Will and Winston Dugmore, 

Lovely cottage with spectacular views. Immaculately presented and spotlessly clean. Helpful owners. Good area to stay, only an hour to the lovely beach at New Quay and near the steam train for a journey to Devils Bridge which was good fun. Surrounded by fabulous scenery its a perfect base for a scenic drive, particularly over the mountain pass.

Spectacular time - views, kites, other birds, sunsets, weather great - just a few of everything we have enjoyed here. The house we cannot praise enough. can't wait until we come again. Thank, thanks, thanks again

The McLaughlins, 

We had a lovely week away at this property, the owners were very friendly and helpful. The views from the cottage were spectacular. We visited lots of dog friendly beaches, pubs. The Dani Chinese in Tregaron was delicious even in my brothers eyes as he is very well educated with the Chinese heritage. The sculpture place and blanket shop are also worth visiting. (Take your money as your bound to see something) we did.


Breakfast really good..........excellent place for bird watching......very comfortable room


Thank you Lee and John for the wonderful time in this wonderful cottage. We enjoyed house and garden, especially the windows! We liked Teifi Pools, Y Talbot and the friendly people. Feli loved the environment and other animals


Really enjoyed our week. Plenty of cycling (Bit hilly!!) Well equipped and thoughtful welcome pack. Cannot think of anything we needed that wasn't provided. Many thanks.

David & Viv, 

Beautiful cottage with fantastic surroundings. Our daughter particularly appreciated the mezzanine as a study area for her GCSE's.

The Williams', 

Beautiful cottage. First visit to Ceredigion. Enjoyed all the scenery.Many thanks for all that you have provided for us. Hope to visit again soon

Jan P, 

Short but very sweet!
Loved the views, hosts , breakfast, birdwatching and lovely accommodation!


Better than we could have imagined. A treat for us and pups!
The view was spectacular and our hosts made a tremendous fuss of our pups. They were very kind and attentive and the breakfast basket is a fabulous idea, particularly for those who struggle with being sociable first thing in the morning! We were very impressed with the cleanliness of everything, plus the decor was very tasteful and made the stay almost spa-like in atmosphere.


Fantastic house with amazing views. Perfect for extended family as we didn't hear our granddaughter ( 6 months old) crying in the night!


This beautiful place has captured our hearts. Amazing holiday and we don't want to leave! Hopefully we'll be back soon!

B. Smith, 

Brilliant hosts, a top class stay and the views were breathtaking


Had a fantastic holiday in your beautiful home. We loved it the last time we came ( 9 years ago ) and we loved it this time too. We will try not to leave it so long next time!


Thanks for a lovely stay at your B&B. It was a lovely room with fantastic views. You both should be very proud to have a great place and to be able to make people so welcoming. We have done loads of B&Bs and have to say yours beats the lot..

If we are looking again in your area you will be top of our list!

The Thompsons, 

Went with partner and dogs and was truly amazed at what a wonderful B&B it was. Plenty of room for us and two dogs. Lee and John were amazing hosts and very helpful. Only a mile walk to the local village where there is a nice pub that does lovely food. Will definitely be going back


We have had an amazing time in your wonderful home. We have seen some amazing sites while here. The dogs have loved every minute we have been here. Thank you

Jon M, 

We have all had a wonderful time in your wonderful cottage. Views amazing. Having someone in a wheelchair and easy accessible has been great. Don't want to leave but will be back. Thanks Lee and John for making us so at home.

Beautiful property. This barn conversion is in an idyllic location. The property is beautiful inside and the hosts Lee and John were fantastic. i would highly recommend this stunning barn conversion to families or couples looking for peaceful break in sensational surroundings. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Tim B, 

Comfy bed, beautiful views, large windows, lovely quiet location. Excellent for nature lovers and bird watching.


Great welcome, good food and a lovely room.
This was a beautiful room, large, well equipped, space both for sleeping and dining with a stunning view over to local valley and mountain. The owner was very helpful but not intrusive. The breakfast was very good and was sourced from local produce. From my bed, through a very large picture window I saw a stunning sunset. It was a very good place to be.


Fantastic cottage, fantastic location, gorgeous views. Helpful and welcoming hosts both to us and our dogs. Everything is well equipped, spotlessly clean - bits of info about things to do & lots of games for rainy days - we loved it- Thank you xx

Jacqui, Matt, Imogen, Arthur & Eddie. Notts, 

We have had the most relaxing half term in the barn. Even though it rained quite a lot we didn't mind as the views were magnificent. The children loved watching the birds and our dogs had great fun running in the field. Thank you, we hope to return again one day!

Chan Family, Gloucester,

10/10 Will stay again later this year.
owners made us feel very welcome & accommodation was lovely


A beautiful B&B tucked away in the peaceful Welsh countryside......
The welcome from Lee & John was so friendly, they were excellent hosts & provided everything we could need or want, (including a treat for our two little dogs). The room was bright and airy, with plenty of space and had access out onto a lovely private garden overlooking a field with a brook. The breakfast was really lovely served in our room overlooking the garden.


Lovely and peaceful, great nights sleep and great breakfast


Absolutely fabulous Cottage retreat. A week of peace and tranquillity, just the tonic to take away the trauma of the rat race. Superb cottage with everything you would ever need, immaculately kept. Amazing views all round, daytime and night time with some incredible sunsets. Very dog friendly. Brilliant location with some of the best roads and scenery anywhere in the UK. Highly recommended.

Mike and Family, 

We love the little extra touches you have made here, and we were thrilled to bits to find new walks that we could manage easily (as the weather was boiling hot & we mustn't complain) a lovely, lovely place

Lyn, Bernard, Pauline and Roy, 

Short but very sweet
Lovely well designed and comfortable room,great bed,and then came a brilliant breakfast served in a hamper in the room.Nothing was left out,and serving it this way was such a clever idea


Just fabulous! Thank you!


What a fantastic house and position - we have had a lovely week, walking and exploring the local countryside. the walks Lee and John suggest were well worth doing, especially up to the trig point- marvellous. Thank you

Madeline and Martin, 

A return visit to this bird watcher's paradise! We've had a lovely week just relaxing around the cottage and visiting the many attractions in the region. Many thanks to Lee and John for making us feel so welcome

Special place.
Posted Jun 5, 2017
We had a wonderful greeting on our arrival from Lee who showed us to our lovely room it was very clean and had a fantastic view from the bedroom window the wildlife too was fascinating Lee herself was very knowledgeable about the surrounding area which highlighted our interest. Everything we needed was supplied in the room. We felt we were made to feel special and as for breakfast we have never eaten so much in the morning we had so much to choose from. Hope to visit again time the mean time we are letting others know about this lovely couple Lee and John and the accommodation which made our stay wonderful. Thank you!


We have a cottage 'treat' every year from the kids - it really was a 'treat' this year - wonderful - let me know if you want to sell! great time in a great place - thank you

Jacqui and Derek, 

We could not have asked for anything more to make our stay more enjoyable and relaxing. The room was incredibly comfortable, with a delicious breakfast each morning, and the owners were a joy to bump into for a chat. We enjoyed our day trips to Nant Yr Arian, Cadair Idris, Cambrian Mountains and The Black Mountain. We would advise all who are able to stay here, to do so.


Loveliest cottage we have stayed in in Britain. Hope to return next year

We've had an amazing week here in Ysgubor. thank you to both of you for providing such a useful information pack & a property which is a joy to stay in. The wonderful views. peace and quiet & level of overall comfort would take some beating. We have had many self catering holidays over the years but this 'tops the bill'! We hope to return in the near future.

Pat, Pam and Alfie the Westie, 

What a wonderful cottage in such a lovely, peaceful location! Was lovely to watch the sheep and lambs in the field every day! Cottage had everything you could need, couldn't fault it. Lee was very friendly and helpful and the children loved their Easter Bunnies - thank you. A stay to remember in Wales, beautiful views of all the hills and by night the many stars! Wouldn't hesitate to book the cottage again - many thanks

Erin. Lee, Morgan, Shay, Aoife, Barbara and Taffy the dog!, 

Contributed to a very memorable weekend. The best of comfort and peace and quiet.
The aspect of the room in a country setting was a lovely surprise. The bed was very comfortable and everything was extremely clean. Lee was very friendly and attentive particularly to coeliac g/f needs of one guest. Great area for walks and access very immediate.


We had a lovely time! The cottage is nice and cosy and we were super lucky with the weather. Had lots of nice walks in the sun and had a great time overall!!
