  • "We had such a wonderful week at Yr Hen Ty Coets."

    The accommodation was amazing and so clean and comfortable. So much to see and do in the area. I would certainly recommend the accommodation, the owners, and Sykes the booking company.

  • "The cottage was absolutely stunning with lovely views out to the countryside from the rear of the property."

    Catherine (the owner) was very welcoming and helpful. The welcome pack provided was a lovely bonus which got our stay of to a great start. The cottage is nicely situated for trips to Aberystwyth, New Quay (for dolphin boat trips) and off road cycling at Barmouth. Would recommend this property 100%

  • "This converted barn is simply gorgeous."

    Well appointed, clean, spacious and well laid out. Having breakfast on the patio watching the sun rise over the countryside was the best start to the day that I can remember. Catherine (the host) was incredibly helpful and the welcome pack of Welsh goodies was an unexpected delight. There is no shortage of things to do and see locally and I only wish that we'd had more time. A really fabulous place for a holiday.

  • "What an absolutely fabulous place Yr Hen Ty Coets is!"

    The quality of this property is stunning. The location is excellent with unspoiled views to the rear of open countryside and a river. The owners live in the other half of the barn and they were very friendly and welcoming. There was a lovey hamper welcome pack waiting for us filled with Welsh goodies. I would highly recommend a stay here.

  • "Like many people we decided to holiday in the UK this year and chose this cottage as it was a reasonable distance for all our family to meet."

    This is a property with a high standard of finish and appointments, in an excellent location to explore mid Wales. The lovely owners (Catherine and Rheinallt) live next door and left an excellent and delicious hamper full of locally produced goods as means of a welcome which was very much appreciated. The living areas are all comfortably appointed - living room with log burner seating seven -piano room -dining room seating seven -kitchen with fridge freezer and dishwasher - the bedrooms all have their own TV (beds are comfy too!). There is also a utility room with a washing machine and a fridge for beer - there is really nothing you need to take with you other than food! The enclosed patio area at the rear has a gas barbecue as well. There is a pub 50 mtrs across the road and a convenience store about 200 mtrs walk away in the village. Borth is about 5 miles away and Aberystwyth about 7 miles. Will definitely return in the future

  • "We spent the Christmas period in this wonderful property and had the most amazing time."

    The property is stunning and finished to a very high specification....exactly as in the photos....if not better! It was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the log fire ensured we had cosy nights in. When we did venture out to the local pub (the white lion) we were made to feel very welcome by the locals. We were left a welcome pack on arrival by the owners, full of Welsh produce, which was a wonderful surprise and very thoughtful. The owners of the property were very friendly and helpful both before and during our stay. This is definitely the best rental property we have ever stayed in and we will most certainly be returning.

  • "Fabulous barn conversion done to an exceptionally high standard."

    We echo previous reviews, this is an amazing property. The high quality of the furniture is matched in the bedding and towels that are provided. Welcome pack was the most generous we have encountered. The Owners live in the adjoining property and greeted us on arrival. Very friendly and encouraged us to let them know if we had any questions/ issues. The property would benefit from some updated photos/description on the website. The drive has been beautifully resurfaced and no longer has raised ironwork that was mentioned in a previous review. The balcony off the master bedroom has been removed ! No chance to have breakfast al fresco whilst admiring the scenery from an elevated position. A washer/ dryer is mentioned on the website. There is a great washing machine but no dryer, only an airer. We had an 8 week old baby with us and she produced a LOT of washing. Fortunately the heated towel rails in the bathrooms saved the day. The underfloor heating is preset and locked so you cannot adjust it. Great selection of books, games and children's DVDs. This place is HUGE so plenty of space to spread out. The kitchen area is very well equipped but fairly compact in relation to the size of the property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay despite the not so great weather, the fabulous showers in the 2 en-suites were much appreciated, it's a shame the bathroom doesn't have one. The double width sink did prove a great place to bath the baby, she loved it !!

  • "The home was lovely and clean ."

    It was clear that a lot of effort had gone into ensuring comfort and convenience by the attention to detail. The home was furnished to a high standard with all the equipment and facilities to make you feel at home. The welcome pack with local produce was a particularly nice touch. Catherine was on hand to ensure our stay was comfortable. While we were there, the TV in the master bedroom broke down. Catherine was there within the hour to try to sort it and when she couldn’t, immediately got people in to replace it that same morning. We wanted to get some salt marsh lamb while there and we asked Catherine where we could source it. Not only did she call around the local butcheries on that same day but even the next day until she found one for us. She was more than helpful. A great holiday all round, highly recommend it! The views st the back of the house are lovely and you can hear the stream running at the back!
