Cyfiau Bach

The Barn


Converted to a modern, contemporary style, the barn sleeps six, in three bedrooms (one en-suite). The kitchen is fully equipped, with oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator and freezer. There is also a washer-dryer. Tiled areas have underfloor heating, and the main living-room has a wood-burning stove. Freesat TV is available on a 32” LCD HD screen, with a wide selection of DVDs, books, OS maps and games.

Broadband Wi-Fi is available upon request.


Outside there is seating for dining on the terraced front garden and a large decked area to the rear of the property, from where you can appreciate the stunning view to the mountains. There is also a barbecue stand and ample parking on site.

Getting to the Barn

Cyfiau Bach is a couple of minute’s drive from the centre of Devil’s Bridge / Pontarfynach, which is itself a three-hour drive from Cardiff or Birmingham. Aberystwyth is served by trains run by Arriva, and the village is a twenty minute taxi journey from the city, for those looking for a car-free experience!

The Restoration

Reputed to date from c.1780 and probably forming part of the nearby smallholding, it had fallen into disuse and was sold by a local farmer in 2002 and purchased by us in its still semi-derelict state in the summer of 2003. The interiors were designed from scratch and built over the next two years.
