“A relaxing haven in mid Wales. ”
The hosts were professional and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts and bar facility. The local dinner recommendations were perfect and ensured our stay in mid Wales was welcoming and comfortable. We would highly recommend Brynarth to anyone looking for a country escape.

From Aberystwyth take the A487 South. Just past Llanfarian, turn left onto the A485 through Llanilar to Lledrod. (In Llanilar, take the second exit at the new mini-roundabout in front of the Falcon Inn, to stay on the A485.)
In Lledrod, turn left at the hairpin bend, signposted to Ystrad Meurig, and follow this road up through the village houses. Go up and round to the left, keep going for about 2 miles then take the narrow left turn at the blue ‘Brynarth’ sign to Trawsgoed/Crosswood, carry on down this road for about half a mile and you will find us on the left hand side.
You will see the car park entrance first then the gated drive immediately afterwards. Please use the car park unless you are a Blue Badge Holder; there are pedestrian steps in the corner directly down into the main courtyard. Blue Badge holders please call ahead and we will be watching out for you to assist with baggage and show you where to park your car.
From Carmarthen and the South, follow the A485 to the north, go through Tregaron taking the left at the junction in the middle of the town, then look out for the steep descent into Lledrod and the hairpin left bend. Take the right turn immediately on the hairpin bend, signposted to Ystrad Meurig, then follow as above.
If travelling on the B4340 North from Pontrhydfendigaid ignore any SatNav directions to turn left towards the river ford, carry on and turn left over the bridge, then turn left again following the blue ‘Brynarth’ sign. Just under a mile you will reach a T junction, bare left here, at this point some SatNav’s will try to direct you down a dead end track back towards the river ford again!... ignore this and carry on following the blue ‘Brynarth’ sign for a mile and a half, up the steep hill, over the hump back bridge, carry on even though your SatNav may have told you that you have ‘reached your destination’ you will find us on the right-hand side.
If travelling south from Aberystwyth on the B4340 follow this road for just under 7 miles until you reach Trawsgoed, then take the right turn over the bridge and follow the above directions, towards Brynarth.

These include a single and a double with level access (but not wheelchair-accessible due to doorway width) which both have en-suite shower rooms. These both have a step down into the shower room and then a step up into the cubicle itself. There is another single room, again with level access, this time all the way through into an en-suite bathroom with full bath, again doorway-width precludes wheelchair accessibility. • All other bedrooms are on the First Floor in either the Farmhouse or the Barn and access is via stairs only. • The Dining Room, Lounge and Snug Bar are all in the Farmhouse. The front door has 2 uneven, slate external steps then a timber threshold into the hallway. • There is then a 3” step from the hallway up into the Dining Room. • The Lounge enjoys level access from the hallway, although there are 2 uneven slate steps up into the Snug Bar from the Lounge. • The bathroom for Guests use whilst in the main Farmhouse is on the First Floor, access by stairs, handrail on the left as you ascend. • Assistance dogs are welcomed at Brynarth, please discuss prior to booking as not all rooms are suitable for dogs.

There is a main train and bus station, large taxi rank and plenty of shops, banks and restaurants. • There are limited buses from Aberystwyth to Tregaron, which stop at Lledrod village, about 2 miles from Brynarth; we are happy to collect guests from there or from Aberystwyth by arrangement. • Our Ordnance Survey reference is Landranger 125 ref 669698. • Taxis can be booked for Guests to be collected from Brynarth but we would recommend advance booking due to our remote location! • Anti-allergenic pillows and duvets are available on request. • Digital, colour television is available in a comfortable seating area within the Games Barn, access is via 2 sets of 5 stone steps. • Mobile phone reception is poor to non-existent in this area depending on network, guests are welcome to use our landline if required although a charge or charity donation may be requested.

There is nothing like being able to sit in our lovely grounds, with the wind whispering though the trees, the chirping of the birds and the croak of the frogs in the pond to make one feel at peace – and why should we have this all to ourselves? Go to sleep to the sounds of the owls, the complete darkness comforting you and allowing you the best rest for years, or just stand in the courtyard and gaze in awe at the abundance of stars in the night sky. Come and share it, we will help you however we can to make the most of this tranquil setting, and you know what they say – ‘Where theres a will, theres usually a way!
