  • "This property is a converted schools house."

    The building is divided into two dwellings the front section being the holiday let and the read the owners occupy. Entry takes you in to a hall way with a boot/utilities room and the bathroom on the left the right hand a doorway into the main living area. The space is well laid out with a 3 seater and 2 seater settee a 4 place dining take and a kitchen with hob oven fridge and dishwasher, This area is all open plan with a staircase leading to a large landing and two bedrooms. One bedroom has two single beds and the other a standard UK double. Outside the property there is ample parking by the front door to the left of the property is a decked area with a table and chairs this leads past the owner part of the property to the hot tub and a bench swing. The owners are welcoming and on hand if needed, but leave you in peace otherwise. The school house is around 15 mins drive from Lampeter along mainly single track roads.

    Bara brith cake was a really nice touch, very tasty. Falcondale hotel was a great local dog friendly place to eat, whilst the Hafod hotel at Devils Bridge was also a super place to eat, went back 3 times… Definitely a cottage worthy of a return visit!

  • "A beautiful home, a beautiful view, supplied by beautiful people with beautiful bedding and a beautifully powerful hot tub."

    Area is glorious. The wildlife is soul warming. But please…mind your head on the extractor fan above the cooker! (Ouch) We would DEFINITELY recommend this holiday let to anyone looking for some peace and quite. Everyone in the area was just lovely and pleasant and the owner Linda was a star. Always giving us the privacy we went for but always on hand instantly with any concerns or requests. Try not to steal a fork like we did somehow upon departure. Take your swim wear for the hot tub with stunning views of the hills and lambs but also take ya wellies for long walks just incase it’s a wet one. We enjoyed like so many others have, walking ‘The Loop’. Gorgeous. Just ask Linda for directions. Would 100% recommend this lovely little escape. If you have a doggy I’d recommend taking a small doggy fence if you happen to have one to prevent your beloved pooch jumping over into the field next to garden like our little tike did. We would DEFINITELY return upon the chance to do so. TeamKenBexDobby.

    ! If it's escape from the stresses and strains of life you're after....you cannot wish for a more beautiful and relaxing place. The accommodation was spotless, smelled lovely (always a good sign in my book!) and had everything you could wish for. The hot tub was amazing and the views....just breath taking!! We visited several of the beaches which took about 45 mins to reach by car. Lynda is lovely and could not have been more helpful. Would definitely recommend!! We had a fantastic time.

  • "This is an excellent rental property well deserving of its review ratings."

    A quick scan of the website photo's convey its features and location. Its covered multi jet, 6 person hot tub with open vista over the river Teifi valley is the star attraction, but it has a lot more. Outside there is a private dining and seating area offering the same views. Inside the open lounge and kitchen has natural light streaming through the big arched windows. The kitchen is one of the best equipped of all the cottages we have stayed in. My wife and I struggled to think of a item of crockery, utensil, pan, cutlery, appliance, chopping board etc that was not supplied. It even had flickery led candles in the lounge to complement the Log burner style gas fire. The bedrooms were not huge but big enough and the mezzanine level had a vanity unit that according to my wife, "must have been designed by a woman". The twin mirrors, seating position, lighting and hair drier location were all in the right place to do hair and make up. Another unassuming but excellent feature was the big utility room for walking boots, coats, drying area and general storage. Finally the property host Lynda was excellent. She contacted me shortly after booking and was there on arrival to welcome us to the home, give us some guidance and offer help should we have any queries. For anyone looking for a place to stay in mid Wales this is a great place. The guest comments book had entries from repeat guests and plenty of positive comments from first timers like me. Testament again to the level of experience that can be enjoyed here.

    We visited over the Christmas week and the owners, Lynda and Tony, pulled out all the stops and decorated the old school house beautifully, left lovely Christmas gifts for us and even bought a few items of our food shop that we couldn't bring with us! Nothing was too much trouble for them. We'd like to thank them once again for their fantastic hospitality. The property itself was warm and comforting, a great place to spend the week, we didn't want to leave! The new shower room was great and the new hot tub too was great on a drizzly afternoon/evening after walks with our dog. We would definitely recommend this property and we hope to be back again in the future.

    It is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need. There is a well equipped kitchen, washer, dryer, dishwasher, smart TV, comfy sofas and lovely comfortable beds and of course the wonderful hot tub. We couldn't really fault it. The owner is warm and welcoming and showed us round the property when we arrived. There were lots of other things that we didn't use but would come in handy - books, games, DVDs , towels for the hot tub (we had brought our own), extra fridge/freezer. The local area is beautiful and quiet. We visited Dolaucothi Gold Mines which was great, Devil's Bridge Waterfalls (a must see!), New Quay (my advice would be to book the dolphin trips in advance as very busy) and Aberystwyth. The local town Lampeter is about 7 minutes away and has a few eating places but not a massive amount of choice. I would definitely recommend this cottage.

    The location is stunning with the most beautiful valley views from the garden / hot tub. The owners have thought about everything with their attention to detail. I've never stayed in such a well equipped holiday let. All rooms are so comfortable in every way. For dog lovers, it is ideal as there is a gorgeous forest walk only a few minutes drive away and if you fancy travelling 45 minutes or so, you can be at New Quay with it's gorgeous beach walks. Lampeter is only 17 minutes away and provides good shopping to top up supplies (a decent sized Co-op and Sainsbury's Local), plus the Indian takeaway there (Shapla Tandoori) is one of the best I've tasted.

LAMPETER

Surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and rivers, the area is ideal for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers.
