The old school is a lovely place to holiday and relax. On arrival the owners had left fresh flowers, fresh eggs and a homemade bara brith. The conversion has been done to a very good standard and is made even better with the addition of a hot tub overlooking the surrounding countryside. There are some great places to explore nearby including Lampeter, New Quay and Aberaeron. Very nice

“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed 21 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We are halfway through our week long stay here with our 2 small dogs. I think by the time we go home the breathtaking views from the garden and hot tub might start to seem real, they are just too perfect and what us londoners only dream about. The house is amazing, everything you need and all good quality utensils, lots of space, games and dvds, sky TV too. Lynda and Tony the owners are friendly and helpful without being in your face but there if you need something. She had made us a bara brith which was delicious! and there were some free range eggs. The hot tub makes this place even more special, it's set at the perfect temperature and the massage jets are just right. The whole area has breath taking views and friendly people. If you stay here you must go to the y Talbot in Tregaron, the burger with cheese and bacon all local produce is amazing in fact all local produce is way more tasty than anything I've tasted lately in london.

“ What a find! AND now has hot tub installed”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We wanted a base where we could tour mid and South Wales from but afforded us some rest and relaxation This cottage provides everything you could wish for in a cottage in the country. We had a really fantastic week. It's so refreshing to find a clean well appointed and equipped cottage with good quality accessories. There was plenty of towels! Bathroom , hot tub and beach towels as well as dressing gown each. The description was very accurate. The back is a real sun trap and views from the hot tub/patio table of open fields with red kites flying above were superb. It was so peaceful. Just what we wanted. A little piece of heaven. The owners were very helpful but unobtrusive. The welcome parcel was really appreciated with home made Welsh tea bread . I loved being in this little bubble and definitely wasn't ready to return to normal life which is quite unusual for me!!

“Mr & Mrs ”
Reviewed 30 March 2016 for a stay in May 2014

This is such a beautiful little get away. It's so peaceful and absolutely ideal for a quiet couple of days and you can even bring your dogs.
Myself and my husband have been more than once over the May Bank Holiday weekends for a quiet few days. The owners are lovely as is the lovely fruit loaf that awaits you on arrival.
It's very clean and modern inside with absolutely everything you would need to cook in the kitchen.
We will definitely be visiting again.
Thank you for having us :)

“Wonderfully peaceful Welsh countryside retreat!”
Reviewed 28 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The Old School is a beautiful place to visit inside and out with the old building being retained but brilliantly modernised. Clean and with everything you could want in the kitchen and lounge well stocked with games and DVDs and we were welcomed with home made bara brith as well as some staples (milk, eggs) in the fridge. We saw red kites soaring outside and were in touching distance of lots of areas of natural beauty (Brecons, Pembroke Coast, Brechfa forest etc.). We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to come back to with the dog after a long day walking. Wonderful hosts always willing to help too. Highly recommended.
