  • "Lawrence and Julie are wonderful hosts who made us feel so at home and like family."

    They had thought of every little detail without going overboard and were there for anything we needed. The cabin itself is stunning and the location is breathtaking and we quite frankly can’t fault a single thing and didn’t want to go home. The bath outside is so fun and very private, they offer the use of their own gardens as well as being clued up on local walks and amenities. What topped it off is that they are aware just how rural they are and provide you with enough quality produce to give you a good breakfast your first morning there and the welcome basket is so thoughtful and such a treat. Lawrence showed us around and handed us some warm, freshly baked bread and then on our second day, we arrived back from a long hike to find a local Bara Brith cake with a candle in it and a birthday card for my husbands birthday! This place is truly magical and Lawrence and Julie are absolute angels. We will be back as many times as we can.

    Wow! What a lovely review...thank you. It's a shame you couldn't come for longer as there are any number of places I could happily bully you into exploring. It was a real pleasure having you both stay and hope to see you again. Laurence (& Julie) Property Owner

  • "Thank you for a wonderful week, the kites nest is gorgeous and provided a really comfortable weeks holiday."

    Indi appreciated how dog friendly it was too! Every detail shows careful thought and all the items in the cabin are of really nice quality. The garden was lovely and I enjoyed the outdoor bath. We had some lovely sunshine but it's easy to see how cosy this place would be in winter. The owners were also lovely hosts and available if there were to be any issues or questions. As well as enjoying the view and the kites from the balcony there were some wonderful walks in the area, some so close it was easy to access them without needing to drive there.

    Hi Susan Thank you so much for your lovely review, we're pleased you enjoyed the week. Please give a little Indy a hug from me and tell her she left a chew here!! Laurence (& Julie) Property Owner

  • "I missed not having a table nor oven."

    Bed exceptionally comfortable and lovely to have a warm bathroom. Outside space was delightful. Owners were very helpful and friendly.

    I'm sorry you felt it necessary to leave a comparatively low score on your review. There is a table available to eat from and there is a high spec microwave oven, which you chose not to use. Hence we did heat a meal for you in the house. Thank you for your suggestion in the comments book regarding provision of dinner trays. We will do so. Pleased that you found the bed comfortable and enjoyed the private garden and beautiful view. Regards, Laurence Property Owner

    Warm and snug even on the coldest Welsh morning (too cold for the outside bath tho!). Walks a short drive away, such as Hafod. Would stay again. Thanks

    There’s plenty to see and do in the area. We even braved the outdoor bath in November! Though wore our woolly hats, what a sight!

    So glad you enjoyed it, it was a pleasure. Just to let you know, woolly hats in the outdoor bath are compulsory all year round!!! Hope to see you again. Property Owner

    The accommodation was lovely with an amazing view. Lots of lovely walks nearby too. The hosts were very welcoming, and went above and beyond in providing everything we needed for our stay. It was very relaxing and we’ll definitely be back for another stay.

  • "We had the pleasure of spending two nights at the enchanting Kite's Nest as a special birthday getaway, and it truly exceeded our expectations!"

    The cabin is impeccably designed and exudes a sense of luxury. The ambiance is incredibly tranquil and serene, making it the ideal haven for cocooning, watching movies, and simply unwinding. The outdoor bathtub was a major highlight, offering the ultimate escape from the everyday hustle and bustle. Kite's Nest served as an excellent home base for exploring numerous local attractions. In fact, there were so many enticing places to visit that we could have easily extended our stay and still not had the chance to experience them all. We were warmly welcomed, and the hosts went out of their way to ensure that nothing was too much trouble for us.

    Thank you for your booking and for your lovely review. it means a lot to us. it was a pleasure to have you stay and hope to see you again one day. Property Owner

About the location

PONTRHYDFENDIGAID

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 Teifi Inn and The Hafod Hotel. 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.
