“The cottage was lovely and clean and tidy with all the necessary fixtures and fitting.

the wood burning stove was particularly good, and the owner supplied all the wood and kindling - which was very helpful.

the farm location was very quiet and gave easy access to the West Wales coast at places like Aberporth.

altogether a good experience.

“Lovely cosy cottage in a very peaceful location with some scenic views. Handy for the coast and Newcastle Emlyn is close by for independent shops, the river, the ruined castle and food shops for supplies.
The kitchen area is very well equipped with plenty of work space and the little courtyard was very handy to soak up the evening sun.
It was great to come back to on a rainy day and light the woodburner which is excellent!
My grandson who is 10 and myself are going back next year as he loved it too.”

“This is a very Cosy cottage, with comfy bed, kitchen well stocked and a very quiet location . The little outdoor area was a bonus. There are walks from the property but be aware that these are mostly not flat. Lovely views of valleys below from the field gates. We and our dog loved the “butterfly” walk around the meadow.

It’s location gives very easy access to a wide range of places on the coast and inland. 20 minutes to Cardigan, ( Cwrst artisan bakery was One of the highlights of Our trip.) 30 minutes to Llangrannog, Tresaith Or Poppit Sands and St Dogmaels( with its excellent market ). So a good choice of beaches and Lots of coastal walks to enjoy. Plus it was only 30 minutes to Narberth and it’s lovely high street and fabulous food shops.”

“Cottage was convenient for visiting many different areas. It was comfortable and cosy in the cold, wet February weather. The wood burner was warm and welcoming. The fully enclosed garden was great for the dog and the kitchen area was well equipped. Bed was very comfortable too. Owners are on site if needed. We enjoyed our stay.”

“My wife and I and our dog Teddy spent a few delightful days here in September 3/9/2019 to 6/9/2019. As a cosy, friendly and charming base to use whilst exploring the beauty of West Wales this cottage is perfect as it is just enough off the beaten track but has easy access to the main routes to all the places of interest and magical places to relax in. The property itself was spotlessly clean and well-appointed with good wifi which may or may not be a blessing”

“My husband and I stayed here for the 2nd time with our toddler. It’s a very child friendly property, especially with being all on one level and the 2nd bedroom being separated by 2 doors from the living area. It’s so beautifully quiet around the cottages, with a wonderful view of the night sky, unspoiled by light pollution. We will probably be back again next year too!”

“We enjoyed a lovely stay at Bay Tree Barn; the barn was well appointed and clean with comfortable beds and the courtyard in which it is located lent itself to a convivial atmosphere. Beautiful views around the farm too, as is usual for Wales! The setting is peaceful yet the village with amenities is close at hand - don't miss the Wool Museum which is well worth a visit. Great location, easily day-trippable to a number of local attractions and excellent value for money.”
