About Ysgubor Holiday Cottage

Ysgubor is a detached and welcoming modern stone barn with large picture windows that frame the incredible views across the Ystwyth Valley to the Cambrian Mountains. It accommodates up to six people in three spacious bedrooms, with much of the accommodation being on the ground floor. The cottage is just over a mile from the lovely market town of Tregaron via a quiet country lane or a handy footpath. In the town you’ll find the popular 17th Century drover’s pub, Y Talbot along with cafes, restaurants and individual shops.

Tregaron has been a hub of the upper Teifi Valley for centuries, having held a regular market since the 1200s. The lush grass and fertile soil of Ceredigion produces superb dairy and meat products. The town is also known by horse breeders as the centre for Trotian, or harness racing, and Tregaron hosts harness racing festivals throughout the summer.

There is a carving commemorating the life and exploits of Twm Sion Cati, a Tudor highwayman. He is sometimes referred to as the Welsh Robin Hood, but this is more for his skill at outsmarting his victims, as there is no evidence he passed on his loot to the poor. One of his hideouts was a cave in Dinas Hill, now part of RSPB Gwenffrwd-dinas, and there is a waymarked trail leading to it. There are some excellent walks in and around Tregaron, including an 16-mile bridleway leading to Aberystwyth which runs along the old Tregaron to Aberystwyth railway line. Cors Caron Nature Reserve covers 2,000 peaceful acres, with the protected landscape housing a wealth of wildlife.

The Cambrian Mountains, which you can see from the windows and garden of Ysgubor, are a playground for anyone who likes walking, mountain biking or horse riding. You may be surprised to stumble upon a chapel in the midst of the wilderness. This is Soar y Mynydd, the most remote chapel in Wales. As well as wonderful mountains, Ceredigion has miles of beautiful coastal walks overlooking Cardigan Bay. If you feel like putting your feet up, take a trip on the Vale of Rheidol Steam Railway, which runs from Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge waterfalls.

The nearby Cardigan Bay coast is dotted with picturesque harbour towns and world-famous Blue Flag beaches. As well as great shopping, there are many tour operators running dolphin and seal watching trips of the bay.

Aberystwyth is a great place for a day out. The popular seaside resort town is the largest in Ceredigion and has a wide choice of places to eat and drink. It is a treasure trove of Welsh history with Aberystwyth Castle, The National Library of Wales and Ceredigion Museum.

Ceredigion’s many attractions are spread across unspoilt countryside and coastline. Whether your ideal holiday is fishing or golf, you get your kicks from scaling a mountain on foot or bike, or you love exploring pretty towns full of charm and quirky independent shops, Ysgubor is a comfortable home-away-from-home from which to explore.

Location (Ceredigion)

Accommodation Comprises:

Ysgubor is a contemporary barn conversion with accommodation predominantly on the ground floor. The owners are welcoming hosts, being on-hand with local knowledge if you need it, but otherwise leaving you to enjoy the space and privacy Ysgubor affords.

Ground floor:

  • The open plan layout of the kitchen and dining room makes the most of the natural light that floods into the cottage, as well as the views. The kitchen has a vaulted ceiling that is fully equipped with everything you need including a dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer and washing machine.
  • Dining area with table and chairs to seat six, which flows seamlessly into a comfortable living area where there are two sofas, Smart TV, DVD, CD player and 'Alexa' Bluetooth speaker. Glass French doors provide more natural light and open onto the patio and garden.
  • Master bedroom with a king-sized bed, bedside tables with reading lamps, and storage so you can unpack and settle in. The en-suite has a shower, WC and handbasin.
  • Second double bedroom which is also on the ground floor, and well furnished with a king-sized bed and good storage. It has high ceilings with Velux windows above the bed for looking at the stars.
  • A spacious family bathroom has a bath with shower above, WC and handbasin.

Front Mezzanine:

There are stairs from the kitchen leading to the front mezzanine lounge with full height windows to take in the view. With a large comfy sofa and recliner armchairs, it’s the ideal spot to relax.Lookout through the velux windows and watch the wildlife in the daytime or watch the stars drift by at night.

Rear Mezzanine:

  • The twin bedroom has two large Velux windows and two single beds. This room also has a fold out bed suitable for a child (there is an additional weekly charge for this).
  • There is a children's play area with beanbags and a DVD player, as well as a selection of books and games.

Outside: French doors open onto a paved patio area where there is garden furniture and a barbecue. The garden is fully enclosed and equally ideal for playing games or relaxing quietly with a glass of wine. Lack of light pollution gives Ysgubor amazing moon rises and the visibility of the stars on a clear night is spectacular. There is gated, private off-road parking, as well as a three acre field below Ysgubor which can be used for playing games or exercising the dog (subject to sheep grazing).

Additional Information: The cottage has full central heating and WiFi. All utilities, linen and towels (except beach towels and cot linen) are included. A travel cot, highchair and stairgates can be provided on request. There is a free-to-use charging point for electric cars. Check-in day is Saturday during peak season and flexible between November and March, when short breaks are always available. Non smoking. Dogs are welcome and charged at £12.50 for 1-3 night breaks and £25 for 4 nights or longer.
