We stayed at the barn for 10days for a mum and daughter holiday and we had an amazing time. The cottage itself and the area was beautiful and very peaceful. It was a great way of getting away from busy London. There are some amazing restaurants locally and lots to see and do. The amount of wildlife was great and most nights we went to sleep listening to the owl outside the cottage.
Bryan and Wenda were excellent hosts and gave us a warm welcome. We definitely will be back to both the cottage and beautiful Wales. Thank you again

It's was a pleasure to see the care and attention to detail in your work both of you. Your cottage and your farm are a credit to you.

Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome. The Barn is absolutely beautiful and the interior & special touches made all the difference - just like you see in all the magazines and dream of staying in. The views are spectacular & you just could not ask for more. You are both so lucky to wake up to these views every single day - picture postcard. It has been a truly fab stay and we could not have asked for nicer hosts - only wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Bryan & Wenda.

A perfect place to stay for our first family holiday. The Barn is beautiful and cosy just what we needed with the little one. Loved watching the two adorable puppies and the chickens from the balcony. Will miss waking up to the stunning views. Thank you for a lovely stay. We will be back.

A lovely place to spend a week, very cosy and peaceful. We loved meeting the hens & sheep, their antics kept us well entertained! The coast here is wonderful, we never expected to see so many choughs and dolphins, and the cliff walks are breathtaking. We'll have to return again soon!

A very pleasant break in the beautiful Barn. Well looked after and a home from home. One of the best self-catering we have stayed in and of such high quality. Walking the coastal path between Aberaeron and New Quay is highly recommended. Whatever your age definitely go to Llanerchaeron - fascinating.

We stayed in The Barn for Valentines weekend and what an amazing romantic weekend we had! It’s a long 5 hour drive from Essex, but to stay in this beautiful barn is completely worth it. Pictures on the website do not do it justice – I was gobsmacked when I walked in, it really is stunning. Wenda was very welcoming when we arrived and showed us around – David particularly enjoyed her Welsh cakes! Overall a fantastic place to stay and we will certainly be recommending this place to our friends and family. Thank you for a wonderful stay. xx

Our third Christmas spent in the Barn at Parc-yr-Hebog cottages was third time lucky for weather – very mild, hardly seasonal, but perfect for getting about. The Barn is a welcome retreat after a day out, walking the Ceredigion coastal path, a little at a time, each year. So little changes here which is why we love it – Aberaeron for fish & chips and shopping for supper at the Deli, the fabulous local meat and produce to add to the generous treats provided by Bryan & Wenda, who never change either! Long may it be so and may we spend many more quiet and restorative Christmas breaks here. Mwnt and Penbryn were particularly worth finding and there is still plenty to come back for, not least to stay at Parc yr Hebog, our little slice of Heaven.

Just a quick note by way of thanks for our recent stay in The Barn. We all loved the accommodation and setting and have to say your hospitality (as we found across all of Wales) was first class!
We'll be sure to recommend to friends and family.

We chose this part of Wales because we found this cottage and wanted to stay because it looked so lovely – we haven’t been disappointed. As well as finding the cottage to be comfortable, clean, cosy and very pretty – the area is beautiful and we’ve had a wonderful time exploring an area we’d otherwise have missed. Thanks for a great stay – and warm welcome from Bryan and Wenda.

'FAB-U-LOUS!! Our visit to Wales and our stay in The Cottage exceeded all our expectations. Wonderful cottage and location, most tastefully presented. Excellent hosts. Thank you Bryan and Wenda for making our stay so enjoyable, and for your help in directing us to places to see.

We had a fantastic short break at The Barn. Such a luxurious place with beautiful views, peace & quiet but not too far from some amazing restaurants (We used the recommendations on the barns website!) We will definitely be returning but for a little longer next time. Thanks again Bryan for being so friendly & Wenda for the lovely cakes. :)
