I drove from Aberdeen with my family, Girls 7 & 17 including the in-laws on a 5 night get-away and it worked very well. The majority of the stay saw no mobile phone usage, this was great to get away from work and concentrate on enjoying quality time with the people that matter. James & Stuart were so welcoming and...

Excellent hotel with freindly owners and superb rooms. The views are amazing and the gardens are beautiful. Breakfast was ok but hearing the microwave pinging was worrying. Mushrooms weren't great but the eggs made up for it. Would stay again.

Thank you for your review, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Brynarth. We must commend you on your acute ear for kitchen sounds, although there really was no need to worry - we only use the microwave to heat the Heinz Baked Beans! Best regards Stuart & James

If you want peace and quiet this tranquil little haven is ideal. It's in the middle of nowhere with superb scenery all around. James and Stuart where great hosts, rooms cosy and welcoming and what makes it better is they allow well behaved dogs. Would definitely recommend

I've stayed at Brynarth for work purposes 3 or 4 times now and will continue to visit. I suggest trying to arrive in daylight partly because it's in a remote location so not easy to find in the dark but the main reason being when you arrive the view & location is stunning. The owners are really welcoming. I've stayed...

Stayed here for two nights in June 2016 and really enjoyed it. Spacious well appointed room and friendly hosts. It's very secluded and has a lot of grounds to explore and it is off the beaten track but would definitely stay again.

We have just returned from another two night break, Brynarth being one of our favourite places in the UK. Delighted by the renovations to our usual room, Number 5 is now bigger which made it feel very spacious and the new furnishings were very welcome especially the metal bed frame and chairs. We often choose this room as it is...

We stayed for two nights whilst visiting the University. We were warmly welcomed by our hosts as well as an owl resting in a tree nearby.

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. Brynarth is ideally located to access not only the many attractions in Ceredigion, The Ystwyth and Elan Valleys but is close enough to easily enjoy the bustling coastal town of Aberystwyth itself. The 17th Century farmhouse and barns have been tastefully and sympathetically renovated in keeping with Brynarth's age and time in history, with two acres of bluebell woods included within it's eight acres of grounds, Brynarth hosts an abundance of wildlife - including regular fly-pasts by red kites, successfully re-populating this area of mid-Wales. Bats, owls and pheasants are usually both seen and heard daily. Crystal clear spring water comes down from the mountains to supply Brynarth even through the driest of summers. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind, whether for a weekend break or a longer stay, and if you're feeling more energetic there is so much countryside waiting to be explored, particularly by foot or bicycle. 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 free Wifi, 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! Breakfast is served in the warm and welcoming farmhouse Dining Room. Evening meals can be arranged for groups of four or more guests and are bookable in advance. Dinner is normally served at 7pm and comprises a set menu of two courses, a main course and dessert, with after dinner coffee/tea/mints for £25 per person. If you wish to dine with us please note that we require at least 48 hours notice. Packed lunches are also available by arrangement, if you are planning a day out walking or cycling. Guests can relax in front of a log fire in the lounge with it's adjoining licenced Snug Bar. We are fully licensed with a good range of beers, wines and spirits. 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. We have a large car park and also offer secure, covered parking to motorcyclists and cycles. We welcome 'Well-behaved' dogs by prior arrangement only. We have designated rooms that can accommodate your pet so please contact us first to check availability and requirements. We allow a maximum of 2 dogs per room. We charge £10 per dog for a one/two night stay, and then an additional £5 per night thereafter. ... more   less
