Our birds of prey are always a hit with guests. Meet the birds and be photographed with a hawk or buzzard on your glove. There's lots to do at The Barn itself (watch the video).

Bounded by trout streams, in the middle of 7 acres of private garden, fields and woodland, The Barn is tucked away in the village of Drefach Felindre, once the centre of the Welsh woollen industry. The National Wool Museum, visited by Prince Charles, is at the end of the drive.

The village pub/restaurant is just a 5-minute walk, and there’s a chippie, shop and post office nearby too. The main house, built in 1910, is next door to The Barn but doesn’t overlook it. Before conversion, The Barn was an outbuilding that housed cattle, sheep and pigs, hosted formal evening dances, and even sported a full-size snooker table in the big bedroom upstairs.

The whole area is a paradise for walkers, cyclists, riders, fishermen, golfers and bird watchers. Get your swing in shape with our golf mats and net. Clubs and balls provided. There’s canoeing at Llandysul and Cilgerran and half a dozen sandy coves and beaches within easy reach, boasting cliff walks, cafes and pubs.


The Barn sleeps 6 to 8 people (plus cot) in three first-floor bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin, and a huge family room with a double bed, two single beds and space to swing a giraffe.

Galleried landing leading to…
Bedroom 1: double bed, wardrobe, 4 drawer chest
Bedroom 2: twin beds, wardrobe, 4 drawer chest
Bedroom 3: double bed, two single beds, 32” TV, DVD, wardrobe, 5 drawer chest
Bathroom: bath, separate shower, washbasin and WC

Living room: three large sofas, 42” TV, DVD, and a wood-burning fire - just right for slumping after a hard day at the beach or in the country
Kitchen: electric cooker and hob, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, toaster, 8 seat dining table
Utility room: washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing board and iron
Shower room: electric shower, washbasin, WC
Back porch: for wet jackets, muddy footwear, beach gear etc


At the rear of The Barn, an orchard leads down to a stream. In the summer, youngsters have great fun paddling around and building dams. Early risers might see fox cubs playing in the grass, or pheasants on the lookout for breakfast. For a while the fishpond was empty – an otter took the koi carp to feed her family and a heron visited regularly until seen off by one of our hawks. A raised patio overlooking the orchard catches the afternoon and evening sun. It’s a great place to enjoy a drink or barbecue as the day ends and the tawny owls and bats start the night shift. There is off road parking for 3 cars.
