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.

Natalie, 

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, 

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.

Marc, 

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.

Clare, 

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

Betty, 

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.

John, 

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

Maureen, 

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

Amanda, 

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 familly, 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.

Sue, 

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.

Gill, 

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

Mah, 

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

Penny, 

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)

Neil, 

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 tygaron was delicious even in my brothers eyes as he is very well educated with the Chinese heretige. The sculpture place and blanket shop are also worth visiting. (Take your money as your bound to see something) we did.

Lorraine, 

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

Robert, 

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

Angela, 

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.

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

Christine, 

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.

Stephanie, 

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

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

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

Meir, 

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.

Michael, 

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!

The breakfast was really lovely served in our room overlooking the garden.

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

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 permitting...in 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.

Kerry, 

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

Brian, 

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.
