“A cyclist’s paradise”
Reviewed March 14, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A friend and I have just stayed here for a weekend of mountain biking and were blown away by the scenery, accommodation and hospitality. Karen and Richard were both very welcoming and full of useful knowledge about all the local trails and best places to eat and drink.

The barn conversion was done to a top standard, filled with nice furniture and decorated impeccably to suit its surroundings; a keen eye for detail was clearly used. The underfloor heating kept the place nice and warm on a cold wintery day and the kitchen had everything we needed and more. The barn also has a TV and DVD player with plenty of films to choose from. There is also a good selection of books ranging from local information to cycling with a few Single Track magazines as well. We especially enjoyed the freshly ground coffee and milk Karen and Richard had left for us on our arrival – a nice touch.

Looking forward to booking our next stay already.

“Welsh bliss”
Reviewed March 10, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Booked this property due to a Cycling magazine recommendation and wasn't disappointed.
Karen & Richard gave us a great welcome having stayed here over Xmas and couldn't wait to get back.
Very quiet location with great views of the welsh hills,everything you could need was available in the property re self catering.
So for tips where to ride,drink,eat and even the odd bike repair,we have no hesitation in recommending Ty Beic...will be back soon!

“Beautiful location, cosy and clean”
Reviewed December 24, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We had a warm greeting from Karen during our stay. The barn is set up perfectly for those who are looking for some quiet time, walking and biking.
Ty Beic had a very warm and homely feel to it, has everything you could possibly need for your stay and is superbly well kept.
We went primarily for a walking break and this is a great location to start from.
Highly recommend a visit to Pistyll Rhaeadr (waterfall) it was amazing, especially as there had been so much rain!
We hope to return when the weather is better to explore even more of this beautiful area.

“Amazing Place to Stay!!”
Reviewed October 19, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had a lovely weekend away at Ty Beic. Easy to find, beautifully done up cottage with modern twists and amazing scenery. Very welcoming and helpful hosts and the cottage is fully equipped with everything you can need. Some lovely places to visit and this provides a great base to do everything from. We wish we could have stayed longer than the weekend and look forward to returning. Thank you very much for a fab, relaxing weekend - just what we needed!
