We were absolutely delighted to have found this place as it had everything we wanted on paper but wow it did surpass our expectations. These cottages have everything you need for a fantastic holiday.
We arrived late Saturday afternoon and although no-one was about, the keys were in the door waiting for our arrival and the cakes were on the table- a lovely touch.
The cottages are across the yard from the owner’s farmhouse and situated between the house and the cow barns. They have three lovely friendly dogs who are roaming around all the time and to the delight of our girls followed the everywhere. We had our own dog with us too but that wasn't a problem , as we didn't let him roam free around the farm.
Inside of the cottage was decorated ready for Christmas and was homely and warm. The log burning fire was delightful and we became very good at lighting it by the end of the week!
The bedrooms were large and had plenty of storage space and the bathrooms too were a good size. There were towels, toilet rolls, soap etc..all provided. There was even some nightlights for the bedrooms because it gets awfully dark at night when there are no street lights.
The kitchen facilities were also good. We used the dishwasher daily and brought along our own tablets. We also used the washing machine too. There were numerous utensils, pots,pans, glasses, crockery and cutlery- We've never stayed anywhere with so much choice!
The hot tub was simply amazing. There was enough room for 6 of us to be in together (4 adults and 2 children) and we would sit in there most nights looking at the millions of stars .
The farm is in a quiet location with Lampeter town being a ten minute drive away. Other main towns like Cardigan , Aberystwyth and Aberaeron were approx 40-50 minutes by car and we had a great time exploring the beaches, nature reserves and local restaurants during the day time.
Gwen and Dy were very friendly and helpful, giving us advice about where to go or just stopping for a chat. Our girls loved the freedom of the farm and especially enjoyed visiting the cows in the barn. Dy let them help out with feeding the calves and by the end of the week they were both very knowledgeable and extremely sad to be leaving.
Thoroughly recommend these cottages and indeed we are going back at Easter- can’t wait!
Had a wonderful time in hen Ysgubor cottage, dai and gwen were lovely hosts and kept the cottage well stocked with all you need, lovely to have a wander on the farm and a tour of the milking process, excellent facilities for my wife who is in a wheelchair, plenty of room.in the bedroom for our hoist, very friendly dogs at the door to greet you, shame we had bad weather all week but we managed a few trips out, the hot tub was most welcoming even in the wind and rain. Hope to visit again.
Perfect accommodation, very comfortable. Excellent views. Owners are on site but not intrusive. Very useful utility room, clothes dry overnight. Hot tub is added bonus. Tesco grocery delivery is very useful. Lampeter is looking tired, many businesses have closed. There are two supermarkets in town. A few nice coffee shops. I highly recommend Gwaffynon for a relaxing break..
We are just back from 5 days at Gwarffynnon Farm cottages. We stayed in Hen Ysgubor cottage and from the moment we arrived till the day we left the Davies family could not have been more pleasant and helpful. On arrival there was a lovely selection of cake to have with a brew which went down very well. The cottage itself was spotless and wanted for nothing, the beds are so comfy it made it that bit harder to get up in a morning :) Each room was very nicely laid out and had plenty of storage space and each was also on-suite. The kitchen had everything anyone could ever need for a short or long stay and again was large and bright, just like all the other rooms. :) We managed to pick sunny days all the time we were there so never got chance to get to use the log fire, much to my wifes annoyance :) The best bit of all has to be the Hot Tub and we spent plenty of time relaxing in it just looking out over the beautiful countryside, there was a Hot Tub with both of the cottages and both were quite private from each other. I can honestly say this is by far the best Holiday Cottage we have ever stayed in and would !00% recommend that people try it. We shall be heading back there later in the year with the rest of the family so we can all "chill out" :) Personally I cant wait :)
With a warm welcome received , I knew I was going to love it here. We arrived to fresh dairy milk (award winning farm) tea and coffee with home made bakestones and cake. Gwen and Dai's daughter showed us around the cottage and explained what we needed to know about inside the cottage and outside.
There is also an information pack inside. The cottage is well equipped in each room. There are plenty of kitchen essentials, I cooked a full roast beef dinner. A big plus the dishwasher was a real help! There's a three drawer freezer and ample space in the fridge.The food waste is collected outside as is all plastics, cardboard and recyclables. Off the kitchen there is a drying area/boiler room with washing machine/dryer. Very handy for when you use the hot tub in the night as you can hang the bathers on the airer and they're dry by the morning. Any wet areas on the floor, conveniently the mop and bucket are stored in this room!
The lounge area has a log burner and the first basket is included, all baskets after are currently £3.00 each which we found is enough from late pm to last the evening til late. Well, to be honest they probably last longer but my husband loved the burner a little too much!!
The lounge also has a variety of board games for children and adults, kept in the lounge cupboard. There's also an array of brochures and leaflets for every interest and occasion.
The downstairs bedroom has twin beds, wardrobe and dresser with plenty of space for a travel cot, with ensuite facilities it's fab for a family with a younger child. There are two windows, both with lovely views. If you do have a young child, you may not want to tell them about the chickens and sheep outside the window on the farm!! The shower/steam/sauna is something else! All details explaining the functions can be found in the book in the lounge, you may want to get familiar with them! I used the storm shower and had the radio on with the light but I wasn't daring enough to try and do anything else!!
The hot tub outside was ready for use immediately. It has several features to it and these will be explained, although it is relatively simple. There's also a lounger as well as the seated areas, so you can lie out and let the massaging relieve all the stresses. Although there are no stresses at Beudy Bach as it's the most relaxed I have ever been.
The wooden stairs leads to a very large bedroom with a kingsized bed and bunk beds in a recess, each with reading lights. The upstairs bathroom, ensuite has a lovely jacuzzi bath with a hand held shower facility.
There is a games room adjoining the next cottage that has a pool table and table tennis.
The owners were so helpful when we were there and that was a real bonus. Whilst there I used the wifi to look into re-booking!!!
