    The name, the Plucking Barn originates from the days of old when the barn was used to prepare ducks and chickens. Today there is no trace of that, but instead you will be greeted by friendly owners who have created a modern and very comfortable holiday cottage, in an ‘upside down’ style to take advantage of the gorgeous views. On the ground floor there are two bedrooms, one a double and the other a twin with an additional z-bed. They both have access to the lovely shower room with walk-in shower. There is thermostatically controlled radiators upstairs, and underfloor heating on the ground floor. Upstairs, the living area is open plan with a spacious modern and well equipped kitchen and dining space which leads to the living area where there are two comfy leather sofas and chair. You can sit here and take full advantage of the amazing countryside views or step out through the patio doors onto the balcony and enjoy sitting at the table with a coffee or a glass of something chilled and breathe in the fresh Welsh air. There’s also an outside seating area right by the barn with barbecue, table and chairs and a great enclosed paddock for exercising dogs right opposite.
    The location of the Plucking Barn makes it an ideal base for day trips around west and mid Wales. There are over 60 miles of glorious coastline in Cardigan Bay. There are lots of beaches and coves and many are dog friendly all year round if you are bringing your pet on holiday with you. The pretty coastal resort of New Quay and the colourful Georgian harbour town Aberaeron can be easily reached within 30 minutes’ drive. You’re very likely to see dolphins in the bay and there are boat trips available to watch them and the other wildlife. The Victorian seaside and university town of Aberystwyth is also within easy reach and here you’ll find a traditional pier, promenade and the old electric cliff railway to the summit of Constitution Hill where you can enjoy a really panoramic view of the bay.
    If outdoor activities are your thing, there are plenty of options for walkers and cyclists of all abilities as well as horse riding, canoeing and more. Families can enjoy a day out at the National Trust Dolaucothi Gold Mines at Pumsaint, the Silver Mountain Experience (silver-lead mines) at Ponterwyd or the red kite feeding centre at Bwlch Nant Yr Arian. Or why not take a trip on a traditional steam train from Abersytwyth to the falls at Devil’s Bridge? There’s far more to see and do here in this diverse and culturally rich part of Wales than can be written in a few lines, so why not book a break or a longer stay at the Plucking Barn – you won’t be disappointed. Beach 13 miles. Shop 3½ miles. Pub and restaurant 5 miles.

    Andrea and Claire were very accommodating throughout our stay. The property was the perfect size and the balcony to sit and admire the view at breakfast was bliss. The dog paddock was ideal for our 5 to stretch their legs and have a good play whilst we got to overlook the picturesque scenery and watch the red kites overhead. Only negative to it, and really is a minor thing, the laminate flooring at the top of the stairs was a tad slippery when the dogs are keen to head down the stairs and our lab with her arthritis would sometimes slip. Once we realised this we'd slow them down, but if a non slip matt could be placed I'm sure others would benefit.

    We stayed here as a family of 5 and a dog and had such a lovely time. Claire and Andrea have thought of everything which made our stay easy. The views are beautiful as is the barn. We would recommend this to anyone wanting quiet few days away especially with a four legged friend! The only reason I put location down a bit was that finding somewhere nice to eat was a little bit of a struggle but that was not the fault of the plucking barn as it’s location is lovely. I’m sure there are some hidden treasures to eat but we weren’t really there long enough to find out.

    We had a wonderful time at The Plucking Barn. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need to hand. This was one of the most pet friendly cottages I have ever stayed in. My dog was made to feel just as welcome as my wife and I. Thank you Claire and Andrea, we will definitely come again and will be recommending you to family and friends!
