“Idyllic country setting with 5* service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2010

This was a wonderful find.An idyllic country setting based around a courtyard with stunning views of an unspolt valley.Ian and Cathy provide a friendly welcome, a high level of service, excellent food and lots of personal touches. They gave us useful advice about the local area which really helped our house hunting. We would highly recommend them to friends and will use them again when we return to the area..

Do not set your satnav to off-road unless you want to approach via a riverbed.
Food was excellent, people the same. Ian and Cathy deserve all the success their dedication and service earn. Well done you both !

A real gem in this class of accomodation, hosts who take a real pride in their standards and do everything possible to make your stay a pleasurable experiance. No hesitation in recommending Brynarth as a place to stay in Mid-Wales.

I am rather reluctant to write this review, as I am afraid that too many people will want to visit and I will never be able to book a stay again. However, praises have to be sung, and what praises. The location, the hosts, the food, the amenities, all excellent and all delightful; Cathy & Ian are hosts in a million, fun, friendly and attentive. Nothing and I mean nothing, is too much trouble for them, from ordering your particular consistency of scrambled egg to extra pillows or blankets for your bed. The garden is a delight, the countryside breathtaking and the silence, broken only by a myriad of birds in the daytime and the gentle hoot of the owls in the evening, the silence is incredible. Peace, perfect peace. We cannot wait until our next visit.

Our family took over this place for a weekend back in March, and i have been recommending it to people ever since.

Ian and Cathy are excellent hosts, and look after you for the whole trip, by the time you leave you feel like its your house and you know them!

The property itself (or collection of properties) has one main house with a lounge, bar area and dining room, with a couple of bedrooms upstairs. There is then another farmhouse to stay in right next to the main building which is where we stayed. The rooms are all very nicely decorated an comfortable and very cosy at night when its cold. (no tv's though, they want to to get away from the world here! Although there is one in the games room aswell as a pool table.)

We arrived mid afternoon on our check in day and were welcomed with coffee and cakes, which was a nice touch. Later that evening some of our guests still hadnt arrived (which was no suprise this place really was in the middle on nowhere!) But it was no problem for Ian and Cathy they simply delayed serving the food until everyone had arrived. They were equally flexiable with breakfast , some of us up were up later than others!!

The food itself was fantastic, huge portions and all local produce. The drinks in the little bar were well priced too which was a pleasant suprise.

Overall a really nice stay in a beautiful part of the world, if you fancy a walk or a bike ride etc or just a simple releaxing get away.

Would recommend to anyone.

From the moment of arrival to departure, you are made very welcome. It's like staying with old friends; friends who live in a charming farmhouse in a delightful part of Wales & who can cook really well. We've stayed at Brynarth twice, in the Autumn and in the Summer, and the garden & surrounding countryside were equally delightful in both seasons.
The dinners of locally sourced food are not to be missed and afterwards there's coffee in the sitting room with board games, conversation or a good book.
There's plenty to do in the area whatever your interests with attractive Aberaeron & the honey ice cream a must visit for us.

We couldn't have asked for more from our hosts, Cathy and Ian, excellent comfortable rooms, delicious home cooking, friendly convivial atmosphere. Good central location to explore Mid-Wales. All this in a beautiful location. After our first visit we felt compelled to return for a longer stay as it was so lovely. We felt completely at home and would definately love to return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Brynarth Country Guest House is nestled in rural splendor amongst some of the most stunning scenery in the Ystwyth Valley. It is owned and run by James Dwyer & Stuart Betts and is situated within the beautiful countryside in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains. This 17th Century farmhouse and it's barns have been tastefully and sympathetically renovated in keeping with Brynarth's age and time in history, with 2 acres of bluebell woods included within it's 8 acres of grounds. Brynarth is ideally located to access not only the many attractions in Ceredigion and it's beautiful coastline, The Ystwyth and Elan Valleys but is close enough to easily enjoy the bustling coastal towns of Aberystwyth, Aberaeron and New Quay. We are mid-way between the towns of Aberystwyth and Lampeter and are an ideal place to stay if you are visiting either Aberystwyth or Lampeter University - indeed we are a favoured haunt of many of the students' parents who prefer not to stay in the town. The accommodation includes two double rooms in the main farmhouse, both with large en-suite shower rooms, one with sitting area and dual aspect windows looking out over the countryside. Just across the courtyard, The Old Dairy Barn has 5 delightful en-suite rooms, 2 being singles, plus a further double and a twin that share a bathroom and are ideal for use as a family 'suite' or small group. All rooms are centrally-heated, have radio alarm clocks and hair dryers, tea and coffee making facilities, Welsh toiletries and egyptian cotton towels. Rooms are serviced each day to make your stay as comfortable as possible. An iron and ironing board are available on request. Our Bed and Breakfast rates include a cooked breakfast of your choice from our menu, plus fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurts and toast and preserves. We pride ourselves on offering as much local, fresh produce as we can, most of our eggs come from our own chickens, and we serve home-grown vegetables and fruit. Evening meals are bookable in advance and are cooked using fresh and local produce. All guests enjoy their meals in the warm and welcoming Dining Room and can relax in front of a log fire in the lounge with it's adjoining licenced Snug Bar. Packed lunches are also available by arrangement, if you are planning a day out walking or cycling. We provide free wireless internet access. To enhance the evenings, there is a separate Games Barn where one can enjoy table tennis, pool & darts, here there is also a large colour television with comfy sofas. There are many different paths to take and seats upon which to sit and read, or simply enjoy a drink whilst the sun sets in the perfect peace and quiet. Crystal clear spring water comes down from the mountains to supply Brynarth even through the driest of summers. A two and a half acre wood is a good place to hide away and in May becomes a blanket of bluebells. If you are looking for an escape from the hurly burly of city life or are in need of rejuvenating yourself in a caring and warm atmosphere with excellent food and nurturing surroundings then look no further. We love to welcome dogs here at Brynarth, however we can only accommodate dogs in the rooms of the 'Old Dairy' and not the main Farmhouse. This is because we provide anti-allergenic bedding in the Farmhouse and must ensure that those rooms remain safe for those with allergies. This area is a paradise for walking offering numerous paths, forestry tracks and bridleways, as well as more challenging routes to cater for more extreme walkers, all within easy reach of Brynarth. Cyclists can follow dedicated cycle-paths and byways that pass directly through this area and are free from heavy traffic with breathtaking views. You can join the Ystwyth Trail half a mile from Brynarth, this family friendly trail is traffic free with a gentle terrain. We also have secure storage to lock your cycles up at night. Here at Brynarth we are happy to welcome motorcyclists, as well as a large car park we offer secure, covered parking for motorcycles. Brynarth hosts an abundance of wildlife, including regular fly-pasts by red kites, successfully re-populating this area of Mid-Wales, we are in an ideal location to access many Nature Reserves offering spectacular landscapes and wildlife in their natural habitat, Cors Ian Nature Reserve is 400 yards from us. ... more   less
