    We found the accommodation comfortable, spacious, characterful and homely. Very well equipped kitchen, excellent quality furniture and furnishings. Comfortable patio furniture provided. Beautiful countryside around, peaceful surroundings but not far from the nearest towns. We thoroughly recommend Ysgubor Hir- we couldn't have found a better place.

    Everything was provided for; from all cooking equipment down to bath bombs in the main bathroom. We unfortunately had some car trouble throughout the duration of the stay and had to leave our car in the garage to get repaired. Dawn was so kind enough to go out her way to help us find a garage whilst also allowing us to remain in the cottage past the check-out time until the car had been fixed. We are grateful to them for being so understanding and kind and I would recommend this place to anyone. What a lovely bank holiday weekend we had!

There is a pub about 1 mile away, the food was excellent. Would have liked to sat on patio but with it being February there was no chance, but I can imagine in the summer it would be beautiful.

  • "This property is a hidden gem!"

    A perfect location, hidden away but close enough to be able to visit plenty of sights within the area. The property was huge with ample parking space and plenty of room to accommodate 5 in comfort. The facilities were well appointed, with a well-stocked range of kitchen implements and utensils, the washing machine was very welcome, and the underfloor heating kept us toasty warm. The welcome from the owner was warm, with a nice welcome pack. Bedding and linen was clean, comfortable - special mention to the lovely sheets used throughout. I can thoroughly recommend Ysgubor Hir to anyone visiting the area and wishing to either relax away from it all, or to use the property as a base with which to explore further. The only thing I would have liked to have seen added would be a hot tub, although I appreciate that isn’t for everyone, and please don’t let a lack of one make you miss out on what is essentially a fabulous property in a great location.

The property has amazing views always clean with everything you could possibly wish or hope for. I would definitely recommend and will always give it a 5 star rating. Close enough to the M4 which takes you to a wide range of other amazing adventures in Wales but still far enough to feel like your in the middle of the countryside.

The house is very large and could accommodate quite a few people. The house is well equipped inside and out. The owner was very friendly and hospitable. All in all a great place to set up a base for your Wales adventures and if you're a petrol head then it's close to the Black Mountain Pass. It's a short drive to the Mumbles and Gower and the local distillery tour is a must. There is also caves and waterfalls a pleasant drive away.

Dawn, the owner, made us very welcome and popped by midweek (socially distanced!) to check everything was OK. We really couldn't fault it in any way.

  • "Nice cottage - very well equipped (more so than anywhere else we’ve stayed), but in need of some updating and thorough cleaning."

    The kitchen set up is not ideal for cleanliness as all pots and pans etc are out on display rather than in cupboards - everything we needed to use had to be pre-washed as was covered in grimey dust. I think the beds had been made a while ago and the property vacant for a while as they seemed a bit dusty too, which wasn’t great. Also worth noting that the upstairs bedroom is gallery style (has no door on it), which really should have been stated in the listing - important to know if you’re traveling with another family. Great little stream outside and country views all around which was lovely - as was the food gift basket. Utility room with washing mashing and clothes dryer was very useful too as we got very wet and muddy on walks. Just needs a bit of decluttering and thorough cleaning.

    Thank you for you feedback. I had contacted the guest on Thursday evening and asked how the holiday was going and if there any issues during their stay and no issues were reported. They advised that everything was fine. We encourage guests to contact ourselves if they have any issues for us to address which are quickly rectified when reported. Property Owner

  • "This property was very spacious and luxurious."

    The beds and settees were very comfortable and there was quality furniture everywhere. The owners had put a lot of thought into making this accommodation comfortable and practical for their guests. There was hooks on the bedroom and bathroom doors, towels,, tissues , kitchen roll, toilet rolls and soap for guests to use which was so helpful. I found the utility room where the boiler was a very useful area to dry wet coats and clothes, and there was an airier for guests to use. There was also a washing machine and dishwasher in the kitchen although I didn’t use these. The kitchen was lovely with a large oak dining table and chairs and several cupboards with plenty of crockery and everything you need in a kitchen and also an island giving you more preparation room.This property would be ideal for families with children as there were two beds upstairs in the attic conversion which would be an exciting area for youngsters to sleep, and outside there was a grass area fenced an ideal play area and also a tarmac area where we parked the car where children could also play. The bedrooms were nicely furnished , one had a bathroom next door , and one had a shower en-suite and there was another shower and toilet next to the utility room. There was also a book shelf full of books and dvds and games and puzzles for guests to use. This property was easy to get to as it was near the motorway and not far from several beaches and interesting areas to visit. I would recommend this property as a lovely place to stay. Happy holidays to everyone.
