Y Granar (The Granary) welcomes lovers of peace and tranquillity. This is the place to shed the stresses of everyday life and relax. Set on the upper part of a 200-year old detached barn on the owners’ smallholding, it has a stunning interior, exposed A-frame trusses and stone walls. This sets off the romantic grandeur of the four poster bed with organic linens, and the freestanding roll-top bath. The stable door is glazed, so whether you are sitting in front of the wood burner or lying in the bath, you will be able to enjoy the views towards the Cambrian Mountains. Skylights give amazing views of magnificent night skies. The owners have created a country kitchen with Belfast sink and a range cooker, and there is also a shower room with skylight. The underfloor heating is powered by a biomass system fuelled by wood chip, and keeps you toasty all year round.
The barn, built into the hillside along a country lane, is accessed from road level, and is all on one level inside. The raised terrace has outdoor furniture for relaxing and watching red kites, or take the steps down to the garden with a barbecue and outdoor chess. The owners have gone out of their way to ensure that if you are bringing your dogs on holiday with you, they are made as welcome as you are! They have prepared maps to guide you through beautiful and dog-friendly walks via their own land, and there is a dog welcome pack and even a cute four poster dog bed suitable for small dogs. Up to four dogs are welcome and the there are no additional pet charges. You can also access open moorlands on foot within 30 minutes. A picnic basket is provided so you can enjoy your own adventure even more!
The ancient market town of Tregaron, 1 mile, was once a strategic point for drovers gathering livestock to take along ancient tracks across the mountains to the markets of London and south England. The stunning Tregaron to Abergwesyn mountain road was originally the first stage of the drovers’ route. Today, Tregaron is still a centre for ‘trotian’ - Welsh for horse trotting and harness racing - and the Tregaron Festival of Harness Racing each summer attracts competitors from all over the UK and Ireland. Tregaron is also the home of the Welsh Gold Centre which sells handmade Celtic-inspired jewellery and houses art exhibitions. The annual Tregaron Eisteddfod (Welsh music festival) each September features performers from all over Wales and beyond. The town has many amenities including a café, tea room, takeaways, an award-winning inn, and a pub/restaurant serving real ales and local ciders. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

About the local area

Just a few miles to the north you will find the Cors Caron National Nature Reserve, a raised peat wetland covering 2,000 acres. A fully accessible boardwalk leads to an observation building where you can enjoy views of the landscape and wildlife. Recorded sightings include otters and over 170 species of birds including buzzards, peregrine falcons, merlins, hen harriers and red kites. You can also access a 3¾ mile section of the Ystwyth Trail, part of a 21-mile trail for walkers and cyclists between Aberystwth and Tregaron.
Visit the wilderness of the Cambrian Mountains - there are only a few roads across the mountains and are some of the most breathtakingly scenic routes in Britain. Other attractions include the Dolaucothi Gold Mines (National Trust), The Llanerchaeron Estate (National Trust), Strata Florida Abbey, the site of a 12th-century Cistercian Abbey (CADW), the Gwenffrwd Dinas Reserve (RSPB), the Devil’s Bridge Falls, the Vale of Rheidol Steam Railway and the chapel at Soar-y-Mynydd, which is said to be the remotest chapel in Wales. Explore the coast of Ceredigion, including 60 miles of coastal path, beaches (many dog friendly), quiet coves and pretty seaside towns. Your pets are also given a warm welcome! They have their own mini four poster pet bed, dog treats, food and water bowls. The owners also provide ’visiting pet’ address tags, just in case.
