Ysgubor Holiday Cottage is a special property by anyone's standards. Beautifully designed, this glass-fronted barn conversion offers views of fields and rolling hills to truly immerse yourself in nature, whether indoors or outside. The surroundings here are spectacular and you can really soak up the scenery from the lovely enclosed garden. There is a blissful feeling of being miles from anywhere – in fact, you are just a mile from the nearest pub and the small Ceredigion town of Tregaron. Beyond, there are the Cambrian Mountains in one direction and the beaches of Cardigan Bay in the other.

Whether it’s countryside, the coast or the Cambrians that appeal, Ysgubor Holiday Cottage is an ideal place to stay if you want to take in this beautiful part of Mid Wales. It sleeps six in three bedrooms. One – a twin – is on the rear mezzanine. On the ground floor, there are two king rooms – one of which has an en-suite bathroom with shower and French doors to the garden. There's also a family bathroom on the ground floor, which has a large, deep bath. These easily accessible rooms are just one example of the thought that’s gone into the careful conversion of this former cow shed. Like the bright and airy open plan kitchen diner, with French doors opening to the garden. It's fully equipped with all the utensils you'll need, plus a washing machine, dishwasher, Tassimo coffee machine. A staircase from the kitchen leads to the second lounge with huge Velux windows that allow plenty of light in the day and are perfect for stargazing at night. The cottage is situated within a Dark Skies Reserve, so it's an ideal spot to appreciate the glories of the night sky.

Then there are all the ways the cottage has been equipped. Does it have WiFi? Yes. Is there a Smart TV? Of course. Will you find a travel cot and high chair? They’re all there. It feels like everything has been considered; from a Bluetooth speaker to a barbecue and even a charging point for electric cars. Friendly owners Lee and John live in the next house down the lane, so are nearby should you need them.

If you want tips on things to do, just ask or flick through the guest folder these experienced hosts provide. There are walks from the back door and view-tastic drives into the mountains – try the Abergwesyn Pass. There’s The Ystwyth Way cycle route all the way to Aberystwyth and the good old-fashioned fun of the seaside at New Quay and Aberaeron. Ysgubor Holiday Cottage is a prime location from which to visit them all, but it’s just as sweet a spot to kick back and enjoy the peace and quiet between the mountains and the sea.

Never slept so well!

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. Stayed May 2023.

The best!

We've stayed in scores of self-catering accommodation, and this beautiful, comfortable, warm, homely haven is the BEST. No need to even go anywhere – just fill up the feeder, enjoy the nature, see the stars and listen to the symphony of the birds. All the windows mean the serenity of nature is with you all the time. Lee and John have provided all the extra touches to make this a brilliant home and a hard place to leave! Thank you (definitely coming back!). Stayed Apr 2023.

Top class!

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! Stayed March 2023.
Apr 20, 2023 by The Roberts

Breathtaking views!

Had an excellent couple of days! The views were absolutely breathtaking and there were 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! Stayed April 2023.

Peaceful weekend break in beautiful cottage.

Stayed in this gorgeous cottage with my partner early in February. I have to say the place is spotless, very well equipped and has lovely decor. Comfy bedrooms with stunning views of the countryside while we enjoyed our morning cuppa! Lovely little touches such as treats for our dogs made the break extra special and we really felt our dogs were very welcome. John and Lee were really helpful hosts and we will definitely be back.

Fantastic Family Getaway

We enjoyed a great holiday with our three teenagers at Ysgubor Cottage. It has a wonderful , spacious feel with fantastic views. All of the facilities were of a high standard and we all appreciated the luxury feel of the cottage.The upstairs lounge was enjoyed by our three, as was the garden and walks along the country lanes. The location was perfect for both rest and relaxation and exploring the region. Definitely want to visit again.
