Yr Hen Beudy

Welcome to our Welsh rural retreat - a lovely self-contained former stone barn (on our non-working small-holding) now converted into a cosy, self-contained 2 bedroom cottage. Thick stone walls, slate floors and a slate roof - a lovely, solid old Welsh building dating from at least the mid-1800's. But it is now centrally heated, very well insulated and has double-glazed windows throughout. For more details click here or go to our advertisement on the Sykes Holiday Cottages website where you can also make a booking.

A unique feature of our home is the link to Frank Lloyd Wright, the famous American architect, whose mother Anna lived here and who moved, with her parents and siblings, to America in 1844. Over the years many Americans have visited exploring their roots in Wales.

The cottage provides a wonderful place to 'get away from it all'  and enjoy relaxing, walking, exploring the countryside or the Cardigan Bay sea-shores (a short drive away), or perhaps taking a break from the day to day world.

The main living area has a vaulted timber ceiling, a warming log-burning stove, comfy sitting area, a cosy dining area and a modern fitted kitchen area with dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave etc.

Slate floors, thick stone walls and slate-tiled window-recesses give a wonderful feeling to the cottage - and plenty of insulation built in helps keeps the warmth in.

All lighting is by low-energy fittings and central heating is by an energy-efficient LPG condensing boiler.

Outside, 20 yards from the cottage, there is a dedicated parking area for 2 cars and beside this is a visitors' terrace area with seating and a table.

There are lovely views of open countryside from this gravelled terrace, though not from the cottage itself which is adjacent to the main house and other barns.

The general location is secluded and at the end of a no through road with unspoilt views across the valley and the countryside.

It is  perfect base for artists, walkers, nature lovers, birdwatchers (including the chance to see lovely Red Kite and maybe the barn owl who lives in our wood barn) and people keen on water-sports.

The nearest convenience store is 2.5 miles and the nearest supermarket is 10 miles. The nearest large(ish) shopping centres are Carmarthen (20 miles), Cardigan (22 miles) and Aberystwyth (30 miles).
