Guest Reviews


    • “We were met on arrival by the owner, who showed us around the cottage, was always helpful and friendly throughout and obviously a fantastic source of knowledge for the local area. His Red Kite Cafe at the end of the drive provided one of the best ever breakfasts we have ever had, so give it a go! Ty Twt was a warm and comfortable cottage, very clean throughout with ample crockery etc. required for our stay. We were very central for the beautiful area with many walks and the town of Aberystwyth only minutes away giving access to the coastal walks....fabulous. A totally relaxing holiday with fabulous views of the night sky as no light pollution.”

    Mr Hutchinson, Shipley, November 2015

    • “Had an excellent holiday in a beautiful cottage, the scenery out of every window was lovely. It was very very clean, which in our eyes is a plus. Had lovely hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you.”

    Mr Haskins, Bridport, May 2015

    • “Ty Twt is furnished to a very high standard and was very comfortable. It is just the right size for two people and we loved spending the week there. The bedroom windows look out onto the hill at the back of the house, so we had the pleasure of watching the lambs every morning. The holiday was relaxing, with lots of walking (and birdwatching). We also really enjoyed visiting Aberystwyth, which is just ten miles away, and Machynlleth. It is the perfect base from which to explore the mountains and the sea. The cottage owners are very friendly and welcoming, and we also enjoyed some lovely meals in their Red Kite cafe, which is close to the cottage. A wonderful week's break, thank you.”

    Mrs Richmond, Reading, April 2015

    • “Beautiful views overlooking the hills with red kites flying overhead. Lambs were being born at this particular time. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in. The owners were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Highly recommended.”

    Mrs Coombs, Portsmouth, April 2015

    • “The owners of the cottage were very helpful and always very approachable. If I had any questions or problems they were there to deal with it night and day. It was a nice quiet area but not completely in the middle of nowhere. There were shops and supermarkets a short drive away which came in handy for those last minute Christmas shopping supplies. Overall I do see myself returning.”

    Mr Higgins, Market Drayton, December 2014

    • “Great people and a lovely environment!!! They are very helpful and can't imaging going back to Wales and not staying there!!”

    Mrs Vassallo, Zurrieq, November 2014

    • “Cottage was lovely, the owner friendly and very helpful. Was great waking up and watching the sheep from the bedroom window come over the hill. Must see the red kites just along the road, when it is feeding time, it was such a sight to see.”

    Mrs Kirton, Sunderland, September 2014

    • “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ty Twt. The cottage was lovely with an extremely comfortable bed and fantastic power shower. It had everything we needed. The location was great and the views were lovely. The owners were most welcoming and very helpful during our stay.”

    Mrs Macartney, Bolton, July 2014

    • “On our safe arrival at the cottage (due to the directions provided) my wife and I were shown around the cottage and all its facilities, which by the way were spot-on! We were made to feel very welcome by the whole family, while not being pushy or overbearing. This was our first visit to Mid-Wales, the cottage was set in an ideal position to see the Red Kite's, enabled us to visit places of interest and of course the beautiful countryside of Wales.”

    Mr Emerson, SPENNYMOOR, June 2014

    • “A beautifully decorated cottage situated in a lovely part of the countryside, especially geared for those who like walking, bird watching and beautiful scenery! - even a cuckoo singing in the early morning!”

    Mrs Buxton, Kettering, May 2014

    • “All aspects of this cottage were excellent- would recommend to friends.”

    Mr Rooney, Kingston Upon Thames, May 2014

    • “Fantastic holiday. Very easy to find location. Quiet and peaceful. Cottage very comfortable and completed to a high standard. Owners very attentive and helpful. Ideal location if you enjoy Red Kite bird watching.”

    Mr Cave, Spalding, April 2014

About the location


Devil's Bridge 5 miles; Aberystwyth 10 miles.

The small village of Llywernog stands at the foot of the Pumlumon Range which are the five highest peaks in the Cambrian Mountains. The village boasts a shop, pub and the Silver Mountain Experience which is a fascinating silver/lead mine museum. The immediate area is a paradise for outdoor pursuits with the renowned Bwlch Nant Yr Arian Centre providing 130 miles of mountain bike trails, wonderful walking and the exciting Red Kite Feeding centre all one mile away. Nearby is Devil's Bridge which has been a tourist attraction for centuries and was celebrated by author George Borrow who wrote Wild Wales in 1854. This famous bridge spans the Mynach, a tributary of the River Rheidol and is unique as it is actually three bridges in one, the original built around 1100, the second above this in 1753 and the third in 1903. The bridge is at a point where the River Mynach drops 300 feet in 5 steps down a steep and narrow ravine before it meets the River Rheidol. The set of stone steps leading down to the lowest bridge at the waterfall are known as Jacob's Ladder. Devil's Bridge is served by the Devil's Bridge railway station on the historic narrow-gauge Vale of Rheidol Steam Railway, which opened between Aberystwyth and Devil's Bridge in 1902 and provides wonderful scenery along the ride to the coast. This whole area which includes the beautiful Elan Valley lakes boasts stunning scenery and wildlife and is renowned for walking, cycling, fishing and bird watching as well as trips to the beautiful Cardigan Bay coastline with its wild cliffs and sandy beaches.
