The Barn at Y Glyn
Our Llandysul Self Catering rental is bounded by trout streams in the middle of 6 acres of gardens, fields, and woodland The Barn offers spacious family holiday accommodation in the Welsh countryside at Drefach Felindre near the Cardigan Coast in a peaceful environment with grounds chock full of wildlife.
The Barn can be found in the village of Drefach Felindre, Carmarthenshire, 12 miles east of Cardigan Bay. Once the centre of the wool industry in Wales, the National Wool Museum is at the end of the drive. The village pub/restaurant is just 5 minutes walk and there is a chippie, shop and post office nearby too.
The main house is next door to The Barn but doesn't overlook it. The house was built in 1910 as a wedding present for the mill owner's daughter. Before conversion, The Barn housed livestock, hosted formal evening dances, and the big upstairs bedroom sported a full-size snooker table.
This area of Wales is a paradise for walkers, cyclists, riders, anglers, golfers and bird watchers. There's canoeing at Llandysul and Cilgerran and half a dozen sandy beaches within easy reach boasting cliff walk, cafes and pubs.

Made cosy by oil fired central heating and double glazing The Barn sleeps 6 to 8 people (plus cot) in three first floor bedrooms with views over gardens and fields.
There's a twin, a double, and one huge room housing a double bed and twin beds with space to swing a giraffe. This room is equipped with a TV/DVD so you can park the kids upstairs while you relax.
Also on the first floor is a modern bathroom with a bath, separate shower, washbasin, and WC.
The galleried landing descends to a spacious living room with ample seating, a 32 inch TV, DVD, and wifi internet broadband. Comfy sofas and a log burning fire are perfect for slumping after a hard day at the beach or in the country.
In the kitchen, there's plenty of elbowroom around an 8 seat pine table. Appliances include an electric cooker and hob, fridge, freezer, microwave, toaster, etc. Next to the kitchen, a utility room houses a second sink, the washing machine, and tumble dryer.
Completing the accommodation is a ground floor shower room with electric shower, washbasin, and WC.
For guests with toddlers, stair guards can be fitted on request. The living room wood-burner has a child-proof fireguard. The bedroom wood-burner is decorative only. There are smoke alarms installed on both floors and the first floor has an emergency exit with steps to the ground.
At the rear of The Barn, an orchard leads down to the river. Early risers may see fox cubs playing in the grass or pheasants on the lookout for breakfast. Sadly, the fishpond is now empty an otter took the koi carp to feed her family and a heron snapped up what was left.
A raised patio overlooking the orchard catches the afternoon and evening sun. If you're not dive-bombed by nesting swallows its a great place to enjoy a drink or barbecue as the day ends and the tawny owls and bats start the night shift.
