Brynarth Country Guest House
Ranked #1 of 1 Lledrod B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 March 2014

This was our third visit to Brynarth, and we have already booked the fourth! With the weather forecast looking particularly optimistic for late February, we 'phoned to make a reservation only a couple of nights ahead, and James and Stuart were very helpful. We had an excellent time, finding the place as relaxing as ever, which was the whole purpose of the trip as I am about to launch into a particularly hectic non-stop three-month work schedule. It is so good to be able to bring our dog Boris with us, as walking without him seems quite incomplete, and it was hilarious to see Brian again, James' and Stuart's dog who is a real character with a great sense of fun. One change we noted this time at Brynarth was the Guest Information folder, which James and Stuart have developed considerably since our first visit a year ago,and which provides invaluable information about local walks, visits and eateries to reflect their own experiences. Another feature which really struck us last week was the abundance of wildlife in the area - the local pheasant put in an appearance on the lawn as he took his constitutional, nuthatches and a woodpecker came to graze at the bird feeder, and the number of red kites circling around was astonishing. Finally, the thing which makes Brynarth special is the warmth of James' and Stuart's welcome, and this they support with a great deal of thought about everything they do for their guests. Thank you, and well done!

Room Tip: The two in which we have slept are both equally good - it is really down to whether you prefer a bat...

Just returned from a superb 2 night break in the company of very welcoming hosts.
Wonderful location and James and Stuart made us feel so at home we felt reluctant to leave!
Immaculately clean, delicious evening meal and plentiful breakfasts. We loved our evenings in front of the roaring log fire.

Very helpful local knowledge of the area provided without a hint of intrusion.
Try to include a trip to Bwlch Nant yr Arian forest centre. We arrived to see the daily feeding of the Red Kites. Great facilities for children- my 13 yr old was fascinated.

We booked a mid week break at Brynarth and stayed in the main farmhouse. The drive as you get near Brynarth travels down increasingly narrow roads but this is all part of the experience. We arrived later than expected but Stuart and James were very accommodating. The breakfasts are excellent with local produce being used and cooked to perfection. We booked an evening meal for the first night which was as good as the breakfasts, for the other evenings we ate out, once at the pizza place on the front in Aberystwth. We also tried the Miners arms, the later was excellent. The house is clean and comfortable and the main room fantastic when the fires going! Stuart and James are great hosts and try out the snug bar, fab and reasonably priced! The local area is fantastic for walkers, cyclists or just for chilling and exploring. If your looking for a great chilled out place, just book this! Oh and you get to meet Brian, the spoodle hope you boys are coping! Hopefully we will be back in the summer.

Room Tip: The en-suite above the main room is very spacious if you're staying for a few days and have lots...

My partner and I stayed in one of the farmhouse rooms and adored our time there. Not only is the surrounding countryside amazing and the local towns well worth a visit, but the guesthouse itself is by far and away the nicest place either of us had stayed at.
Stuart and James couldn't do enough to be helpful and their advice about local attractions was spot on. The rooms were warm and comfortable and well kept and the food served was superb.

I cannot recommend Brynarth highly enough and I hope that we will return some time soon!

Room Tip: The rooms in the farmhouse have wifi available, helpful as there is no phone signal.

When I asked Stuart and James if they could organise a programme of events for our annual ladies weekend away, their response was - "no problem, leave it to us". The result - an action packed couple of days - visits to local beaches, beauty spots and restaurants. We were collected from the railway station and taken everywhere by mini-bus - Stuart and James have a wealth of local knowledge and were able to give us a real flavour of what the area has to offer. A well organised, extremely enjoyable weekend. If you are looking for a hassle-free venue for a group of friends - look no further.

What a little gem is Brynarth Guest House just near Lledrod only 20 mins or so from Aberystwyth. Don't be put off by the narrow Welsh lanes as you weave your way to the house - it's all part of the adventure and the trip is well worth it when you arrive in such a beautiful oasis. Run by Stuart and James who are very welcoming and friendly without being intrusive. We had a wonderfully relaxing two night stay in a large en suite room in the main house which was clean and comfy, serviced each day. A big plus was large bath towels! Plenty of choice for brekky. There is a lovely cosy sitting room with log fire. Dinner is available on request, just as well - negotiating those roads at night would not be much fun! The surrounding grounds offer a wonderful view of green, rolling sheep filled hills. We visited in damp October, but in summer there are lovely peaceful spots to sit sipping a glass of wine! It's a great spot for a quiet getaway or with a small group of friends. Highly recommended. Thanks James and Stuart - not forgetting spoodle, Brian. It's a long way from Oz, but we will get back there when we can.

This was the first of several return visits we have planned to Brynarth in the coming months, on the pretence of dropping in to see our daughter who is studying at the University in Aberystwyth. We enjoyed the usual warm welcome from James and Stuart, aided and abetted by the new member of their team, Brian the Spoodle, who is a real character; it is impossible to say quite how it all works, but a couple of nights there makes you feel so amazingly relaxed, yet, to achieve the quality of the experience, James and Stuart must have to work incredibly hard. Everything is extremely well-judged and comfortable, and it is interesting to see how they are developing the place as time passes. We were very grateful for their recommendations as to good lunchtime eateries and places to visit; a particular favourite was the former Aberystwyth-Carmarthen railway line just down the road, where the track bed has been turned into a cycle path, ideal for walking the dog and for enjoying some stunning views. My wife and I (not forgetting the dog) look forward to going back again for a few days after Christmas.
