April 2017 Review from West Wales Holiday Cottages 

“A nice place to stay with great views well managed and quiet which is what we were looking for”

February 2017 Review from West Wales Holiday Cottages

“The 'barn' was beautifully decorated, comfortable with all mod-cons, very clean throughout and dog friendly (we kept our dog downstairs in the hall as she got a little wet n muddy). The kids kept busy on rainy days with games and dvds provided, and used the wifi for their gadgets. We enjoyed the peace n quiet and the views from the balcony. Lampeter was only a short drive, the seaside half an hour.”

October 2017 Review from West Wales Holiday Cottages

“Ideally located for the hill walking and coastal. Great place to relax in the evening after walking veiwing the wonderful views from the comfort of the seatee.”

"Perfection" August 2016

This place is a small piece of heaven. The barn was immaculate throughout. The kitchen was incredibly well stocked with all the things you could possibly imagine. The views were fabulous and the family were so welcoming and friendly. They looked after my dogs for the day so I could head out to sea for the day which was fabulous. They provided a huge amount of information for local days out and things to do. I cannot fault any part of my stay. Highly recommended.

"Luxury with a view" August 2016

We stayed in the Plucking barn last weekend. What a fabulous place. Wonderful panoramic views. Quite peacefulness with very friendly hosts.

It is a great place to use as a base to visit the local area. New Quay to watch the dolphins - yes they were there last Friday and great Fish and Chips.. Aberaeron for its genteel quaintness and Llangrannog for its little bay and brilliant pub.
On the Sunday we took a drive up to Gigrin Farm to watch the feeding of the Red Kits. An unforgettable experience.
We will definitely return.


"Beautiful Holiday Home" August 2016

This is one of the best holiday rentals I have been to. The owners attention to detail is superb. the view from the balcony is stunning.

This is an 'up-side-down' place with the bedrooms and bathroom on the ground floor and kitchen/diner/lounge on first floor. Very clean, very comfortable. The attention to details means that everything you think you will need (and a few you don't think of) will be found somewhere in the property.
The two bedrooms are one double and two single, and I had the best night's sleep ever in the double bed. My granddaughter is now asking her mother for a bed the same as she slept in here!
The directions given to the property where good - I found it easily without the use of sat nav. As this is Wales, please be warned that sat navs don't work too well!

    We stayed four nights, the Plucking Barn is gorgeous and the view is beyond beautiful. Everything that you need is provided including holiday dog tags. The paddock for the dogs is superb, our boys loved it. Other place are easily accessible,we particularly enjoyed Aberforth. In Lampeter Grannies Kitchen was recommended to us and the food was lovely, it was also dog friendly, which was a bonus, water and treats were brought for the boys so they were pleased! Lovely relaxing stay and we will definitely be returning, the hosts were very friendly and helpful

    Just absolutely amazing
    Not sure where to start but WOW what an amazing place to stay.
    The barn is just perfect and wonderful inside. Luckily for us the weather has been unbelievable and sitting on the balcony looking at the amazing views is worth the trip alone.
    We booked here as soon as we read the reviews, saw the photos and more importantly found out about the enclosed dog paddock which our 3 springers love. Its probably the best, safest and biggest area we've seen for where the dogs can have a great time while on holiday.
    The utility block literally has everything in it. The amount of books, dvd's, games etc as well is awesome.
    Everything is clean, tidy and well looked after. The covid measures put in place are second to none. So much so there's even a box to put items like dvds and games in that will be cleaned before they are out back.

    A lot of our holidays we have actually considered or gone home a day early, but that wont be happening here. We needed the rest and relaxation and we've certainly had it while staying here.

    Claire and Andrea the owners made our stay even more enjoyable and it was a pleasure getting to know them. They are just absolutely lovely and nothing is too much trouble. They said we could of stayed the rest of the weekend and we would of if it wasn't for work.

    The little details like dog tags with the location and phone number, dog treats, bowls, balls and an endless supply of dog towels really did mean alot.

    The 1st day we lay on our dog beds on the gravel in the sun and was soon told 'We don't expect guests to do that, make yourself at home and use any furniture you see'.

    Thank you so much Vanessa, Reece, Snoop, Poppy and Lilly.

    An amazing holiday home that feels as comfortable as your own. The bathroom would not be out of place in an expensive hotel and the whole barn was spotlessly clean. The attention to detail was more than I expected and the owners are lovely and extremely helpful, though also very mindful of your privacy. The setting could not be better and the peace and quiet of the area together with the view was beautiful. If you are undecided whether to book don't be. You will not be disappointed, the reality is even better than the pictures. A perfect holiday that was as geared to our dogs as to us, although would be just as nice if you didn't have dogs. We will be returning.
    Thank you Claire and Andrea
