“Didn’t want to go home”
Reviewed 24 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

This really is a great place to stay the views are fantastic, good facilities with pool table, dart board and hot tub. This is the sort of place where you don’t need to lock the doors! Also pet friendly one of the few places we could find that will accept more than 2 dogs. Mr and Mrs Evans are very friendly and nothing is to much trouble will definitely visit again the landscape is quite breathtaking. Towels are not provided so you will need to take your own.

“Beautiful farmhouse in amazing countryside”
Reviewed 7 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We spent five days at Ysgubor with family and three dogs and we all enjoyed every minute of our stay. We all loved the house with its 400 year history, oak beams and wood burning stoves making it cosy and relaxing, a real country cottage feel. The rooms are big and we loved the big kitchen with its family sized table and comfortable lounge. The hot tub and pool table were a definite bonus. Mr and Mrs Evans were lovely and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. We will definitely be going back.

A group of 10 of us stayed in Ysgubor for 3 nights and it was just a wonderful experience. Great friends, great house and super surroundings.
For a short stay in February the weather was very much on our side and the owners were extremely helpful and accommodating, showing us the best routes for our walks and just being general lovelies. As a group we walked to the Red Lion pub which served fantastic home cooked delights and a well deserved pint of something refreshing. We also took a hike up to the top of the idyllic mountain side surrounding the cottage which have the the most breathtaking views.
Of course this wouldn't be a review without the mention of the hot tub, just great!
This house itself is oldy worldy with beams, an insane master bedroom/bathroom combo and incredible dining area which really went down a treat with the wood burning fires.

All in all this was a super stay for us and we would be more then happy to go back again. In fact we are all in talks of a summer stay so lets get booking.

Thank you so much for your kind review of Ysgubor. We are so glad you had a lovely time and it sounds like your party really made the most of the surrounding areas! We agree that the food at the Red Lion pub is a well deserved treat after a hike up the hill! We hope to see you at Ysgubor again very soon.

Well this was our second holiday to the area and Ysgubor was a fantastic place to explore the area from and then relax and enjoy the evenings in. I can't go any further without mentioning the owners who couldn't do enough for you and were always so friendly, welcoming and enjoyable to deal with. The cottage is set at the foot of a mountain owned by the owners and as mentioned in other reviews the owner will take you up in his pick up so you can enjoy the incredible scenery and walk down. The hot tub is perfect after a long day mountain biking, walking or exploring!

The house is in good condition and it may sound minor but the pump that aids the water pressure around the house does a sterling job and all the showers are nice and powerful, especially the jet shower! Huge kitchen, big lounge and a games room means there's always plenty of room for everyone.

Would definitely recommend and return.

“Amazing cottage, can not wait to go back”

I can honestly stay I have never been sad to end a holiday like I was leaving here. We went as a group of 10 for a surprise Hen weekend. The bride to be was blown away as I think we all where. The owners couldn't of made us feel more welcome without being intrusive. The cottage was just perfect and we are already planning our one year on visit.

The farmer took us up the mountain in his truck and we walked back down (except for one of the group who was driven down) the views were completely amazing and the walk was on a road so wasn't too strenuous.

The hot tub was very well used and thoroughly enjoyable, the kitchen was definitely the heart of our stay. As it was lambing season the farmer let us all have a little cuddle with a new born lamb.

The lack of phone signal and internet was a pleasant change and I thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet of being there. I can not recommend this place highly enough.

Thank you for your feedback, we're happy you enjoyed your stay here at Ysgubor. We agree, it's lovely to go away and enjoy the countryside without the stress of daily life. However, we have recently installed WiFi at the property, which will be available if you did wish to use it next time you're here.
