    Glovers Cottage, part of the 65-acre Fynnon Hywel Farm, is without doubt something unique. As you enter you will be struck by the space and the overwhelming character of this detached building. The owner has deliberately left the barn open-plan for guests to appreciate the huge A-frame beams and stonework. A feature handmade bed sits on the first level as you enter, and this area leads down two steps to the flagstone floored living and dining room, with the option of a breakfast bar or separate table to dine at. Two further steps down bring you into the well-equipped kitchen and the bathroom. French doors lead out to the enclosed courtyard where you’ll find a hot tub.

    University of Wales Agrarian Historian, Professor Richard Moore Colyerm, has kindly provided background to the farm. The small complex of buildings on the Ffynon Hywel site comprise a farm settlement which appears to date from the late 13th century and, indeed, may lay upon the foundations of an even earlier site. On a hilltop a mile or so to the west are the earthworks which represent the remains of the 11th-century castle of Llanrhystud, which played an important role in the various wars between the belligerent Welsh princes, before it was eventually fortified by Roger, Earl of Clare in 1158. Today a series of grassy banks and ditches, the remains offer wonderful panoramic views of the great sweep of Cardigan Bay. Ffynon Hywel (Hywel’s Spring/Well) marks the location of one of the 200 or more identifiable “holy wells” of Wales. In this respect the place would have been familiar to the many pilgrims en route to the great Cistercian Abbey of Strata Florida, in addition to being locally celebrated for the healing properties of its waters.

    Originally part of the Mabws Hall Estate, Ffynon Hywel is located close to the original lane leading to the hall itself. The lane is available to walkers who might wish to enjoy the tranquillity of the local pastoral landscape and the quiet splendour of its woods and rippling streams. Ffynon Hywel Barn, as the name implies, was a key component of the economy of the site for several centuries. Of scarved cruck and rubble wall construction, it has probably had many functions over that period in accordance with the changing nature of local farming practice. Over the past couple of centuries it will have served as a threshing barn, and original features relating both to threshing and winnowing can still be detected. It is a wonderfully atmospheric building and after a glass or two of wine it is only too easy to imagine the ’twack’ of the hand-held flails on the threshing floor as the labourers set about their dusty and sweaty task! Now exactingly restored by the present owner, the barn offers an ideal base for those keen to explore the rich heritage and unequalled countryside of this part of the ancient kingdom of Ceredigion.

    Fifteen minutes away you can visit Aberystwyth, where there’s an array of shops, restaurants and cafés, as well as the pier and promenade. Take part in the long standing tradition of walking the length of the promenade and ’kicking the bar’ at the end! There are several theories as to how this tradition began, but once you reach the north end of the seafront you will see the Victorian Cliff Railway taking passengers on the stately journey to the summit of Constitution Hill, where you can have a snack whilst taking in the magnificent views of Cardigan Bay stretched out in front of you. Being a university town, there’s a very good arts centre and theatre, and the National Library of Wales offers free guided tours. If it’s beaches you’re after, Ceredigion has a stunning selection and over 60 miles of coastal path too. The Vale of Rheidol steam railway also departs from the town and meanders through stunning countryside to Devil’s Bridge and waterfalls. Beach 3 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    Cottage was really nice! The hut tub was superb! Oven was a bit tricky but good experience. Had a dog with us and the only thing was that before us there must’ve been a toddler or a child staying as he kept finding sweets around the house. Otherwise very good experience.

    Lovely peaceful cottage in a beautiful setting, a great get away and a relaxing break, very much appreciated the added extras, cake and bubbly on arrival, would definitely recommend to family and friends. Made full use of the Hot Tub which was amazing.

    Glovers cottage overall is a lovely barn conversion, which has the wow factor when you first walk through the door. The bed is amazing and a fantastic size, along with a lovely addition of your own hot-tub. Well presented with lots of special features.

    Pefect cottage for a restful break away but in a great location for local town, attractions and beeches. The cottage has every thing you may need for your break, only down side we found were the sofa was a little uncomftable but nothing that would ruin your holiday. Before we went I was worried about reading reviews about the garden not being secure for our dog but the court yard is fully secure for our beagle, and if there were a way out he would be able to find it. Would highly recommend the cottage and wouldn't hesitate to stop again at.

    Lovely cottage. Perfect for a restful week. Only slight downside the sofas convert to beds and they offer no support as a sofa. Really uncomfortable to sit on. Everything else is of an incredibly high standard so this isn’t a complaint just an observation.

    Beautiful cottage with tasteful interior design .On arrival it felt as if the cottage had been cleaned in a hurry - bowl and sponge left on windowsill and a couple of other small details. More importantly, a piece of the bannister fell off the gallery area and missed my partner by a fraction! Would have caused a serious injury had it hit him . We’d literally just arrived at the cottage . The Aga was a bit of an issue - wanted to cook one evening but not at all familiar with this system , it seemed to be hot one day and cold the next . Central heating system also a bit of an issue , two of the evenings were particularly chilly - frosty outside, heating went off and when I asked about the thermostat was told it was operated via a smart meter which we had no access to . We were advised to open the door on the Aga oven but there was no heat coming from it. The property is new as a holiday cottage and I felt it was a bit sparse with some things. We were left with only one toilet roll and also would have liked a hand towel in the kitchen , plus soap . There was only one dishwasher tablet in the cupboard,also . Small details I know but having to go out shopping for loo roll and soap was not part of the plan . On the positive, I feel the cottage will establish itself once it has been up and running for a while . Nice gesture with the cake and prosecco on our arrival . Didn’t use the Hot Tub but it was checked daily . The bed was amazing , the mattress very comfortable. The cottage is situated in a beautiful and tranquil location and I would recommend it as a place to stay .

    Cosy quirky cottage with fantastic hot tub, great for couples. However if you are taking your dog with you the advert states an enclosed garden of which it is but only for large dogs, anything smaller will get through the fence and into the field which my dog did numerous times. Apart from that great quiet place to stay.

    A lovely cottage! The attention to details was incredible (e.g. welcome cake & prosecco, hot tub, interior design). Ideal for a countryside holiday.

    Got a little lost trying to find the cottage, but was happy to see the cottage is exactly as shown in the pictures. Very tidy and had Prosecco and Welsh cakes on arrival which was a lovely extra. Had a bit of trouble working the Aga on the first night but got the hang of it towards the end of the stay. Hot tub was brilliant and the main reason for booking - we had sunshine so made the most of it!
