Reviews

Beautiful location and a lovely property. We would certainly recommend it to friends and family.Julian from Herefordshire - 20th June 2018
The barn was warm and cosy, the hosts were welcoming and helpful. Very peaceful and quiet. Hot tub perfect in the snow.Michael from Swansea - 21st March 2018
We loved being in the countryside where it was so peaceful, and seeing the wildlife. Our hosts were fabulous, so thoughtful, even going so far as to getting our daughter a balloon for her birthday. The hot tub was fabulous and the gazebo well thought out. There's a beautiful private garden at the back of the cottage but unfortunately we couldn't take full advantage of it because of poor weather.
We enjoyed visiting the National Woollen Mill Museum and gold mine on rainy days. Poppit Sands is a great beach with rock pools at low tide. It's watched over by RNLI lifeguards too. Calabria Italian restaurant was great and only a 20 minute walk.Family from Hampshire - 2nd September 2017
Everything was perfect
Cheryl and Bill's reception and hospitality throughout our stay were second to none - from the welcoming to making sure we had everything we needed for our stay.
Cardigan Castle is a value for money attraction. Folly Farm is great for kids and a great full day out. The National Woollen Mill is a must (it's free but you need a good half day to view and see the demonstrations etc)Joff from Nottingham - 25th July 2017
This was our 5th visit to Stone Barn Cottage - enjoyed just as much as the first if not more.Vivien from Gloucestershire - 11th June 2017
We had an amazing stay at the property. The property owners Cheryl and Billy were both so welcoming and friendly. The property was clean, well looked after and very relaxing. I would recommend the beach and the cliff walks and they are a memorable experience.Couple from London - 9th May 2017
Very welcoming, superb standard.
Recommends: Local beaches, the Daffodil pub for foodDean from Miskin - 24th April 2017
Absolutely amazing. The cottage and the surroundings are breath taking, such a relaxed place. We really enjoyed Aberporth Beach and the children loved being set free to run and play in the gardens. It was amazingFamily from Cheshire - 9th April 2017
A wonderfully peaceful location with discreet hosts.
Tips: Visit Ship Inn at Tresaith and discover waterfall on beach. Driving over the Preselli Mountains to Pembrokeshire - great views on a clear day.Couple from Slough - 3rd January 2017
