The owners were there to welcome us which after a long journey was great. The cottage had all we needed. The location was perfect to go explore other towns and areas with a good time to get back. We loved that once the babies were asleep we could go outside and have a sheltered seated area to chat and relax. An overall wonderful first family holiday. We would definitely go back again and recommend others to stay!

Although this is a 5 star holiday we feel it should be given more. Joy and Rod are two of the nicest people you could meet. The accommodation was faultless. The hot tub was super and so relaxing. We will definitely be going back next year.
Mr Anderson

It was a home from home where we could relax and enjoy our time together as a family.
Mrs Worthington

The owners were such welcoming hosts and were brilliant with our boys and allowed them to enjoy the farm and the animals. The cottage was beautifully appointed to a high specification and the hot tub was a fabulous extra. It was a good location in a lovely part of Wales. We wiill recommend and return.
Mr Faulks

The property was exceptional and the location lovely and secluded. I love cooking, so was ecstatic to see the kitchen was full of bowls, knifes, whisks etc.
Mrs Burton
February 2016
The standard of facilities was extremely good you can actually turn up with a few clothes in a bag as the owners have thought of every eventuality. Location was good plenty to do within a few mile radius or plenty to do in the cottage with board games, DVD and 3D TV provided.
Mr Walker
November 2015
What can we say about the cottage - it was warm, homely and spotlessly clean. It was the best equipped we have ever stayed in with a fantastic kitchen and bathroom. The laundry room was very useful as the weather was wet for the whole week. It didn't stop us enjoying the wonderful coastline though and the hot tub was a great place to enjoy a drink in the evening. All in all a fantastic place to stay, we would thoroughly recommend it.
Mrs Horrey
January 2016
Fantastic holiday! Yr Hen Llaethdy was spotless and had everything we could possibly need. The owner had thought of everything and the little extra touches made the stay even more enjoyable. The hot tub was a lovely added luxury after a day's walking. The photos do not do the cottage justice- it's much bigger in real life and is decorated to an extremely high standard. Can't wait to visit again!
Mrs Charlton
November 2015
This cottage was beautiful! We could not have felt more welcome by the owners and the whole cottage was finished to such a high standard, it felt like being in a luxury hotel. The hot tub was amazing and our six year old loved going on the swing everyday. Would highly recommend to anyone to visit this beautiful place.
Mrs Woods

The hosts were welcoming and thoughtful, and the holiday cottage was quiet and relaxing, just what we needed.
Mr Chambers
September 2015
Liked the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners, the cottage, which was everything we hoped it would be, and the beauty of Wales. The fact that the cottage is dog friendly and so many of the pubs and cafes are also dog friendly.
Mrs Robinson
July 2015
The attention to detail, the excellent hosts, the feel good factor of the solar roof cells, not having to think about anything because everything was there and the privacy.
Mrs Sharkey
June 2015
In terms of value for money this property was absolutely great. Accept this property as part of a working farm and the quality is very hard to beat. The owners were helpful and friendly. It is very well equipped, comfortable and well placed to explore this part of Wales. Simply loved it!
Miss Morrow
February 2015
We all loved the hot tub, even the kids couldn't get enough of it.
Mrs Favager
March 2015
The owners are incredibly friendly and welcoming and really contributed to a fantastic week away. The cottage is furnished to the highest standards and the welcome pack that was left was wonderful and very thoughtful. We cannot recommend this cottage enough and really hope to return very soon!
Mr Williams
March 2015
I liked everything about this fabulous cottage. An ideal location for peace and quiet but near enough to the town centre and other places of interest. Highly recommended.
Mrs Khan
April 2015
The accommodation is stunning - beautifully furnished and a lovely finish. The picture of the outside of the property makes it appear quite small but it is deceptively large when you go inside. The whole family loved the hot tub which we made use of every day! The owners were very helpful and were happy to show our children the farm animals. Would definitely recommend this property for a lovely holiday.
Ms Harvey
June 2015
A relaxing environment around nature and the animals, within easy commuting distance to beaches - at New Quay beach we saw Dolphins several times on different days. The standard of accommodation was excellent with attention to detail, magazines, hot tub, 3D TV, shower, and fantastic bath and bed. Very comfortable, a home from home!
Miss Matravers

Mr Gaw

Yr Hen Llaethdy was superb, finished to a high standard and spotlessly clean. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners who are on hand if you need them, the hot tub is excellent as-well!
Mrs Kelly
August 2014
We stay in a lot of cottages, and the owners have obviously given careful consideration to the comfort of their guests. This is a beautifully furnished, well-maintained and well-equipped cottage with nothing to want for. Thank you for a fantastic week.
Mrs Davies

The cottage was wonderful and finished to a high standard. The hot tub was amazing. The couple couldn't do enough for us and were lovely people. It was a perfect holiday. We would definitely return.
Mrs King
December 2014
Liked the peace, the welcome, the hamper and the farm animals. As well as the hot tub and the wow factor of the cottage. The underfloor heating made the cottage warm and toasty, thank you for giving us a relaxing break.
Mr Bray

Completely excellent accommodation in every way.
Mr Latimer
May 2014
It was amazing from start to finish. Every little thing had been taken into consideration and to say it was home from home would be to do it a disservice!
Mr King-Hall
April 2014
We enjoyed our stay, it was perfect in every way. The owners of the property were very welcoming. Would recommend this for a family break or just a nice romantic getaway.

Miss Humphris
March 2014
The cottage was modern and very spacious. The hot tub in the private courtyard was an added bonus. The owners had thought of everything, even down to their quirky ornaments. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, definitely looking to go back there, perfect retreat.
Miss Cook
January 2014
Very friendly owners. Lovely farm setting. Fantastic hot tub. Lots of nice little touches ie birthday card, homemade cake, oil for hot tub lovely soft fluffy towels etc.
Mr Chaggar
February 2014
I booked Yr Hen Llaethdy as part of my wife's 30th birthday surprise and we loved it! The pictures don't really do it justice as the cottage is stunning; the owners have done an amazing job of making it cosy, yet modern with a green twist. Highlight was the hot tub, hidden in the corner of the garden, perfect for a romantic bath with bubbles, lights off and the LED's on. During the day we had a walk around the farm and met some of the animals, the donkeys were the best! Would we come here again? Oh yes!
Mrs Branston-Orr

The cottage exceeded our expectations and was lovely to return to after a day exploring this wonderful part of Wales. The property is of a very high standard. We shall definitely be returning in the near future.
Mr Van Der Hoeven
November 2013
Me and my partner will be searching for a place of our own soon, and this cottage really inspired us, in many different ways! From the underfloor heating, the ground source heat pump, to the fantastically kitted out kitchen, the fantastic log burner, the animals, the scenery, the excellent bathroom, I could go on and on! If only something like this could be bought or rented! Cannot offer high enough praise, really impressed, and will definitely return in years to come!
Mrs Walker
September 2013
Wonderful accommodation, perfect place to relax.
Mr West

Warm friendly welcome. Tasteful decoration. Brilliant kitchen, made cooking a pleasure. Lovely garden with chiminea and covered area so any weather use. The owners' attention to detail and obvious desire to make our time there pleasant.
Miss Andrew

The cottage was beyond our expectations, very high quality and fantastically equipped with everything you could want.
Mrs Hannis
August 2013
Fantastic holiday cottage which completely exceeded our expectations. Superb facilities and exceptionally clean! The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Our children loved seeing the animals around the farm. Super quiet location within 20 minutes of beautiful beaches. We cannot wait to go back!
Mr Curnock
July 2013
Having had self catering holidays for many, many years this was probably the best property we have stayed in or certainly in the top two or three. The owners were a delightful couple and had put a lot of thought into making the property like a home-from-home. The surrounding area was stunning in its beauty and one week was certainly insufficient to explore it all.
Mr Kemp
October 2012
This is a particularly well appointed cottage, and everything has been thought about.
David R
August 2016
From the very first moment we stepped inside this holiday cottage to the very last second we left we loved it so much. The property is beautifully furnished with every need catered for. The cottage is on a working farm so you can see donkeys and cows but when you are in the cottage you forget about all of this. The hot tub is a lovely extra and a nice way to relax after exploring the many seaside towns and secluded beaches and coves. We enjoyed the area so much we intend to go back next year. Would I re commend this property? Yes. 100%. A great cottage and location for a wonderful family holiday.
Mrs Templeman
August 2012
A well looked after, modern, wonderful cottage. The cottage is is in a lovely quiet area,Towns and beaches are easily accessed.
Mrs Preedy

The accommodation was truly excellent. Everything of a high standard and beautifully clean. No expense spared. Location good for Cardiganshire beaches.
Miss Gaze
July 2012
The cottage was amazing and surpassed our expectations. South Wales was beautiful, the beaches fantastic and we even saw dolphins swimming in the sea. We will definitely go back.
Mrs Broadway
July 2012
This cottage was incredible! It far exceeded our expectations! If only our own home was so lovely! The owners could not have been more accommodating and helpful. We will definitely be back.
Mr Morton
July 2012
The town where the cottage was situated was really good and had some lovely shops. The countryside was beautiful. The people who owned the cottage were very nice and nothing was too much trouble for them.

We decided on this barn as our honeymoon. It was perfect. The barn, the surroundings, the garden..... Everything!!! We took our little pug Colin and the garden was perfect for him. It is fully enclosed so he could wander around. Although it is a working farm you do not get disturbed. I have seen some negative comments about the wifi. We didn't even try it as we were on holiday and had no need for it. Joy and rod were always there when needed but didn't intrude. I would highly recommend this holiday let to anyone. And one last thing... Buy the eggs!

My husband was really keen to book this cottage but I was a little reluctant because I didn't feel it would be right for our boys. I couldn't have been more wrong. Joy and Rod are brilliant hosts, providing a very generous welcome pack. The cottage is beautifully appointed; very comfortable beds, nice bed linen and towels, a very well equipped kitchen, lovely bathroom and the hot tub and 3D TV are great extras. The area has some stunning beaches and good value days out for families. The boys (7&9) loved the farm and Rod was good with them, allowing them to feed the animals. We've already checked to see if we could go back for our summer holiday but the cottage is booked. We will definitely be back though!
February 2016
We have just returned from a week at Yr Hen Llaethdy. We were greeted by the owners who were very welcoming. The cottage is extremely well appointed and we found it to be the perfect base for exploring all west Wales has to offer. After days out we found the cottage very comfortable and relaxing, the hot tub being a great feature. Will defiantly return.
August 2015
This is the second time we have been to Yr Hen Llaethdy and loved it both times. Situated adjacent to the owners' farmhouse it remains private, with help to hand if needed (not that we did), and a very warm welcome from the outset. There is no expense spared in the furnishings or comfort with everything we needed to hand. The hot tub is a favourite, and the canopy means that meals outside are lovely even when its a bit chilly or damp. This suits us because we like to be a little remote but not too far from local amenities and attractions.
April 2012
My 18 year old daughter is studying for A levels and we picked this cottage as it was the only one we found with WIFI. It doesn't have it. Excuses didn't help, there is no wifi. Left early with no refund as owners didn't care.
December 2012
This cottage was beautiful and one had the feelimg that no expense had been spared in equipping it. The setting is lovely and ' farmy' and the owners very helpful and thoughtful. Altogether an excellent experience!
June 2013
Friendly welcome, comfortable, spacious, well equipped property.
August 2013
When you first view this property nothing really stands out, but when you entae then practically everything stands out. It has been veryu well thought out and no expence has been spared, but that does not mean that it is not cosy and hoely and even though we have a dog we did not feel that the dog shopuld not have been there. The owners were very friendly and did everything in their [powers to make our stay a pleasant one. plenty of places to visit in relatively close proximity but very nice to come back to the peace and quiet of the farm
May 2014
This was our first family holiday in the UK and wow it was great. From the minute we stepped into the barn we knew we would have a good week. I am a bit "fussy" when it comes to properties and cleanliness etc but I needn't have worried, it was the cleanest and most luxurious property we have stayed in in a long time. We loved the hot tub, 3d television and the massive shower to name but a few. The kitchen was enormous and had everything you'd ever need to practice your culinary skills. It was reassuring to have an enclosed garden as with small children it can be a worry about them wandering off into the farm. We all loved saying hello to the animals daily and Rod (property owner) was even kind enough to show us around the farm and take us on a short ride to his nearby field to see his sheep and lambs! Although it is a working farm once the doors are closed the house is sound proof so the kids and us slept very well in the huge beds. There is plenty to do in the local area from stunning beaches with seals to theme parks, castles etc. the list is endless! Wifi in the property is a little hit and miss but what do you expect in the middle of the country, we were there to holiday after all and if we wanted to spend all day in he internet we'd have stayed at home. Thanks to Rod and Joy for making us feel so at home. I'm sure we'll be back!
August 2014
We had a great week in this cottage, lovely cozy cottage done up to a very high standard, we really couldnt fault it. The only thing that let it down for us was that it was too remote, we couldnt walk anywhere, ie a pub or the next village, you have to get in the car, albeit not a very long drive away. Owners lovely and didnt interfere, but always on hand should you require anything. As this cottage is set on a working farm, its a great way to get first hand experience of how a farm is run and we were lucky enough to meet a new born foul that was 12 hours old. They welcome you to wander all round the farm to say hello to all the animals .

We stayed at this beautiful barn conversion mid- August, with two children aged 8 & 16 so it's not easy finding somewhere they will both like. The location is very remote but this only adds to the feeling you away from it all.Surrounded by cattle,donkeys and other farm animals it's a brilliant location for people who enjoy wildlife and love being outside. The barn itself is stunning, no expense is spared the kids loved jumping in the hot tub in the evening then playing on the swing in the lovely courtyard while I cooked our evening meal in the massive kitchen. The bedrooms are spotless and extremely comfortable.There is a utility room great for muddy wellies and washing clothes.The main lounge is lovely with a 3D TV and a wood burning stove which was gorgeous crackling away at night. As for things to do there's loads, newcastle emlyn itself is so pretty with lovely tea rooms and gift shops. New Quay is about 30 mins away a lovely seaside town with dolphin spotting boat trips. Folly Farm is around 50 mins away but a fantastic day out for kids and adults alike. The owners were so kind leaving my daughters a goody bag filled with biscuits,chocolate, sweets and jam which they were thrilled with. We cannot wait to return it was so relaxing and stress free.
