  • "Just perfect!"

    Beautiful hut out in the middle of a peaceful location. We had an array of birds on the pond and nearby in the reserve to watch & listen to. Such a lovely part of Wales. All we had to take was food, everything else was there for us in the hut. No noise from traffic or people, just birds cows and sheep - perfect!! Even though we had a couple of wet & windy days, it was beautiful just to look out the large window from bed! The hot tub was a bonus just for relaxing anytime, luxury!! The weather wasn't cold enough for us to light the log burner inside or the fire pit outside but they were there as an added extra bit of comfort too! We brought games to sit on the patio and watched the birds in the evening! Had a lovely couple of days then in the local towns & villages. Gutted the Kite Sanctuary was closed but we'll have to come back & stay here again to go!! Thank you Dorian & Manon.

    The hut is exactly as pictured, beautifully clean and comfortable. Hot tub is bliss and checked daily by Dorian. It’s total peace and quiet - we pottered around locally in Aberystwyth and Tregaron and doing local walks by day and returned to hot tub and log burner in the evening. Manon and Dorian are so kind and thoughtful - leaving us extra fire supplies when asked and checking we were ok. We loved it so much we have booked another week in Feb when I next have some leave planned. Everything crossed we make it. Don’t hesitate just book this place you won’t regret it.

    The hosts have thought of everything, every little detail has been finished with care and attention. They made such a lovely gesture for a special birthday of mine and I was blown away by their kindness. We had the very best time here and exactly what we needed to reset and relax. We cannot wait to come back and stay here again in the future. Our dog also was made to feel very welcome and he enjoyed every second of the beautiful landscape. We ventured out and explored the local area as well a little further afield to a gorgeous place called Devils Bridge. Overall an amazing stay and so excited to return hopefully not too long away. Thank you for having us :) Georgia, Bryn and Diesel

    The facilities made it a very comfortable stay. A long and quiet walk right outside the door with plenty of wildlife to catch. Perfect distance to visit Llanbedr, Tregaron, Aberystwyth, Aberaeron, Pontarfynach etc... Very gracious hosts who make themselves available to you - just make sure you read the digital handbook so as to not commit any faux pas (leaving gates open etc), especially with the current pandemic.

    Me and my partner were celebrating 8 years together and this really did make it special. Hot Tub is perfectly clean as well as the rest of the hut, everything you need in one place. Beautiful sunsets, scenic views, quiet town nearby, beautiful beaches within and hour of you. You can’t ask for anymore. Note to anyone booking... as you would be taking your own food, make it simple. Microwave / grill & hob available. You’re on a working farm, don’t forget that... so at night you will have a small group of flies if the lights outside are on. Oh and the sheep... they have no concept of time so can happily baahhhhhh at 1.00am. But these are minor and are what you expect in this location. It’s all worth it!! Manon is amazing. Answers any questions quickly and will be with you in 10 minutes if you are struggling with anything. Have a great time , book it!!!

    Location is brilliant and Cwt Y Gors itself was so unique and beautifully clean. The hot tub is a fab extra especially as we were lucky enough to have some sunshine. One small bit of advice- it can get a little warm inside but don’t leave the door or window open as the first evening we ended up with an absolute ton of little flies and insects (To be expected as the location is a farm). Totally our error but worth mentioning for others. We would definitely book again and loved our stay.

About the location


Tregaron 5.5 miles; Devil’s Bridge 9 miles; Aberystwyth 16 miles.

Pontrhydfendigaid is a small village in Mid Wales between Devil’s Bridge and Tregaron. The village lies on the edge of the Cambrian Mountains in beautiful countryside. It sits on the River Teifi and his home to a local shop and two nearby pubs, the Red Lion and the Black Lion. Devil's Bridge 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 90 metres (300 ft) 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. The attraction offers viewing points and after the steep walk there is a hotel and cafe for refreshments. This whole area 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.
