Brynath Guest House has been charmingly converted from a 17th Century farmhouse and its barns. It offers a different experience as it is miles away amidst the farms so if you want to get away from it all, this is the place for you where you can really relax amidst the sprawling grounds and beautiful countryside. Our family of 3...

We really felt looked-after at Brynarth. The directions were spot-on, the heating was at just at the right level, there is a proper Welsh snug bar and very comfortable lounge. Having visited historical houses, it was a joy to find ourselves staying in one which is so well preserved but with modern facilities, so we extended our stay. We didn't...

The drive to Brynarth along the narrow one lane road is well worth it and much helped by the 'Brynarth' signs at strategic points. We received a warm welcome from James and loved our cozy 2nd floor room in the old dairy barn with its skylights and view at night of millions of stars! The breakfasts were excellent, and the...

When we say height-we mean it, we nearly suffered from altitude sickness getting there, but the journey up the narrow lane was well worth it .

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
