Brynarth Country Guest House
Ranked #1 of 1 Lledrod B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Stayed at Brynarth during a motorcycle tour of the UK, James and Stuart were very accommodating for the bikes as well as ourselves, nice big garage (back the bike in if you stay not ride it in!). We only stayed the one night but will definitely be back. Very knowledgeable hosts with information as to where to eat out locally too. Beautiful setting, just the place to go and unplug and relax.

We are just back at work after a great weeks stay with James and Stuart at the Brynarth Country Guest House, This lovely secluded residence situated away from the hussle and bustle in its own beautiful grounds has been a great tonic. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a welcome to match the warm weather that we were fortunate to have all week.
Our hosts could not have done more for, from pointing out all the great places to visit and routes to walk, to treating us to superb cooked breakfasts and home cooked evening meals. We were booked into there farmhouse room 1 which was full of character to match the whole building. Superbly clean and maintained as would be expected on a daily basis.It was and is our sort of place.
We came away on Saturday vowing to return, the reason being the venue and our friendly hosts. Quite a lot of fellow guests were only booked in for one/two nights but I am sure the wished they were staying longer. There is so much to see in this area, and being keen walkers we have only touched on the area in our weeks stay.
We will be back, keep up the good work James and Stuart

This was our first stay at Brynarth and we shall definitely be returning. The setting in the countryside is quite beautiful and very quiet and the accommodation is excellent and very clean. James and Stuart were very welcoming and hospitable and gave us lots of information about the surrounding area and things to do and see. The evening meals cooked by James, which included home grown vegetables and the breakfasts cooked by Stuart were excellent. The garden was lovely and we enjoyed walking round the grounds in the evenings.

Room Tip: Room number 1 in the farmhouse is the largest room.

We have just returned home from two nights at Brynarth; this was (we think) our fourth visit, but certainly the first in the summer, brought about by our daughter's graduation from Aberystwyth University. The tensions of the preparation for this mega-event were very much eased by the incredibly relaxing atmosphere that James and Stuart create, and Brynarth provided an ideal base from which to make forays into town in order to sort out the inevitable last-minute hitches.
Summer up in the hills was quite amazing; we had never explored the grounds at Brynarth before, and enjoyed walking around the mown path that Stuart has prepared; there are a number of places to sit in the garden itself, and they provided a magnificent view to enjoy in such a tranquil setting. The garden is awash with blooms and fruit, and the colours are really vivid.
As we did not have our dog with us, we booked Farmhouse 1 this time; this is a lovely room upstairs in the main building which it is spacious and beautifully-furnished. Although our daughter has now finished her official association with Aberystwyth, there is no doubt that we will return to Brynarth on a fairly regular basis.

Room Tip: We have stayed in most of the double rooms - they are all great, and wonderfully quiet.

I knew this was my place the moment I arrived. The surroundings, the atmosphere...it's simply magical. Then I met the hosts and they are...the best. They can't do enough to make you feel welcome. Breakfast is great. The place is exceptionally clean and every detail is planned to perfection. I had a very cosy room in the farmhouse, with a comfortable bed and everything I needed. Woke up to birds singing and enjoyed my morning coffee on the wooden bench overlooking the valley (and the sheep!). The garden is wonderful, with benches and tables/chairs placed on the right spots. There's fruits and vegetables, flowers everywhere, and then these artistic details here and there.
This place is ideal for art classes, also because there is plenty of room in the barn if the weather shouldn't allow outdoor activities. Or maybe meditation? Anyway a place for anybody who love nature and silence. A place to switch off the world and recharge your battery.
I will definitely go back for a longer stay. Will bring my pencils and hopefully manage to capture a piece of this little paradise on paper.
My only complaint is this: I didn't meet Brian ;-)

Room Tip: Had room number 8 in the farmhouse. Very cosy and quiet. The place was full but I didn't hear a...

Just spent a weekend in this peaceful B&B, everything about it was just perfect. We arrived wet on our motorbikes and were allowed to keep them under cover in the garage. The B&B is in the middle of the countrside so the silence is only broken by the birds, sheep and owls and only very occassionally during the day if you are lucky, the lovely Brian. James and Stuart were the perfect hosts through out our stay from showing us arround the property when we arrived, to always finding enough time to stop and chat with all their guests no matter how busy they were. We had planned to only have an evening meal at the B&B on our first night and then to try elsewhere on the other evenings but the qualty of the food was so good that we chose to eat every evening. If you are lucky enough to be offered Stuarts apple and rhubarb crumble then you must try it as it is the best crumble you will ever taste. The rooms were spotless and the addition of the games and TV rooms was a bonus with a Pool and Table Tennis tables. The location is ideal to tour the Welsh Coast or paying a visit to the magnificent Elan Valley. I would recommend this B&B for Bikers, singles, couples and families with older children not very young children as there is a pond in the garden. Fantastic, you will not be dissapointed.

My wife and I only stayed the one night but wished it could have been longer. The accommodation was recommended to us by the dog breeder we had gone to see. We travelled from Bridlington to pick up a "sproodle" puppy and wanted somewhere nearby to stay. It couldn't have been better as James and Stuart (the proprieters) had a sproodle from the same breeder, so we could see what we where letting ourselves in for.
A fantastic setting in nice quiet surroundings. The food was outstanding (home made as opposed to just home cooked)! The bedrooms where spotless and very comfortable. We can't recommend enough.
Thank you James and Stuart.
