Yr Hen Beudy is 5 miles from the coast at the vibrant university town of Aberystwyth

Visitors to Yr Hen Beudy all praise the attention to detail in this luxurious ‘home from home’ just 5 miles from the vibrant coastal and university town of Aberystwyth.

Mark, Debbie, Jordan, Kendal, Becky Williams, David Davies and Rufus the dog from Manchester loved it. This is what they said:


Couldn’t believe it when we walked in. It was amazing, the attention to every little detail was beyond expectations. The location was beautiful with amazing views. We even got an introduction to the horses and stabling especially Alfie and Rory. Was made very welcome by Mair and she couldn’t do enough for us. Would definitely give the location, accommodation and welcome 10 out of 10 and are looking forward to coming back soon. Thanks for making the start of 2014 special for us all.


Kevin, Lynsey, Lily-Ann, Owen and Ruby Broom from Berkshire said:


This is a ‘home from home’ but far more luxurious! From the second we arrived, we felt instantly relaxed. The house is so well thought out and designed – it worked perfectly for our 5 year old girl and 2 year old twin boys. It was a delight to see their faces on seeing so many animals as soon as they woke up, priceless. We’re going to steal some of your decor ideas when we get home, as this house is beautiful inside and out. We’ll be back. Thank you.
