    > The semi-detached barn conversions of Awel Y Mynydd (ref OY3) and Golygfar Mynydd (ref OY4), meaning Mountain Breeze and Mountain View respectively, have been lovingly created by the neighbouring owners to provide luxurious holiday accommodation in a wonderful setting on their working sheep farm, taking full advantage of the stunning views and total tranquillity of the rolling hills and Cambrian Mountains, where there is an abundance of wildlife and red kites. Featuring exposed stonework, beams, slate flooring, bespoke oak kitchens, luxury roll top baths and cosy wood-burning stoves, these holiday homes are a perfect base at any time of year. A warm Welsh welcome is assured by the owners, or ‘Croeso Cynnes’ as the locals say.
    About 1 mile away lies Strata Florida Abbey, the remains of a medieval Cistercian abbey, founded in 1164. The preserved ruins of its church and cloisters are open to visitors. Beside it are the burial grounds where celebrated Welsh poet and writer Dafydd ap Gwilym and several Welsh princes are buried. The village of Pontrhydfendigaid offers pubs serving meals and village shop for essentials. Nearby, historic Tregaron has an award-winning pub and restaurant, the Welsh Gold Centre renowned for handmade, Celtic-inspired jewellery, Welsh tea room and art exhibition, and is a ‘Walkers are Welcome’ town. The annual Bro Tregaron Walking Festival is held in May, and the town is also as a centre for horse trotting and carriage racing. Tregaron also holds festivals to honour Twm Sion Cati, who originated from the region and is celebrated as the ‘Robin Hood of Wales’. The town itself was a strategic point for drovers taking animals from west Wales to markets in England - they were driven overland through the Cambrian Mountains to markets in London and even as far as Kent. The Tregaron to Abergwesyn mountain road was originally the first stage of the drover’s route, now a stunning scenic drive.
    The Cambrian Mountains and Tywi Forest are a paradise for walkers, mountain bikers and horse riders, where trails lead to the Strata Florida Abbey, Cwm Doethie, Elan Valley, Llanddewi Brefi, Cors Caron, Soar-y-Mynydd and picturesque Llyn Brianne Reservoir, all renowned for their breathtaking views. Guided walks are available through the Cambrians including Hinterland walks, exploring the locations used in the well-known TV detective series. The wonderful Cors Caron Nature Reserve, set between Tregaron and Pontrhydfendigaid covers over 2,000 acres and comprises three raised bogs built up from deep layers of peat that have taken around 12,000 years to form. It is a wild landscape made accessible by a network of boardwalks that enable visitors to get right into the heart of varied habitats, with over 170 species of birds having been recorded. Within walking distance are the remote lakes of Teifi Pools - Llyn Egnant, Llyn Hir and Llyn Teifi surrounded by open moorland; the lakes are renowned for their quality brown trout, and angling permits are available locally. Within ½ mile lies an ancient holy healing well connected with medieval religious foundations and miraculous healing powers. For walkers, the 21-mile Ystwyth Trail follows some parts of the old Great Western Railway line, connecting Aberystwyth with Tregaron, and Lampeter with Devils Bridge. Within an easy drive is the Ceredigion Heritage coastline with its coastal path and golden beaches, or enjoy dolphin watching, boat trips and visiting colourful seaside towns and villages such as Aberaeron, New Quay and Aberystwyth.
    After a day exploring this magical area, the serene environment makes the perfect place in which to relax and unwind. Beach 17 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2¾ miles.

    Awel Y Mynydd (OY3) and Golygfa’r Myndd (OY4) can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests.

    Beautiful cottages with a gorgeous view across the hills and valley and about 3 miles from the local village. The cottage was well equipped with everything you need to have a relaxing stay in the country. The Black Lion in the village has excellent food and service for a meal out. Or stay at the cottage and cook local meat from the butcher 1 village away. Wifi and TV worked well. Our hosts were wonderful people and made sure our stay was enjoyable.

    Fantastic cottage, Monica and Meirion are such a warm friendly couple and the location is stunning. This was our second visit, the first being 4 years ago, when the cottages had just opened and this visit was just as good. The cleanliness and decor were just as good 4 years on and the welcome was second to none. We will definitely return again.

    On arrival we were welcomed warmly by the owner who personally gave us a tour of the property. A goodie basket had also been left. The views were fantastic and we very much enjoyed our stay. It’s a very quiet and tranquil idyll and perfect for our stay with walks and bike opportunities on the doorstep. I cannot comment on the local amenities as that’s not the reason we chose the cottage. If you want a break in the middle of the school summer holidays without the crowds this is the place to book. It was lovely !

    We had a wonderful relaxing week in a cottage as a family of four with two young children. Our son enjoyed riding his bike on the tarmac area immediately in front of the cottage. There were plenty of activities within 30mins - 1 hour drive, including a trip to the seaside one day. We were lucky to be around when the lamb was being fed one evening and both our both children enjoyed bottle feeding. The hosts couldn’t have been more hospitable or accommodating.

    Comfortable clean and extremely well equipped. Beautiful location - 15 mins to nearest town of Tregaron and 30 mins to Aberystwyth. Hosts Monica and Merion were very welcoming and on hand if needed. The cottage is well thought out and Monica provided a wonderful welcome hamper of treats. An excellent base for walking and sightseeing. The easiest recommendation I've ever given. Lovely cottage and lovely hosts. Would also recommend tge Black Lion pub in the village for excellent food.
