Spacious dog-friendly accommodation in stunning setting
Hiraeth was a really fantastic place to stay. We loved the incredible open setting and the wonderful views across the countryside, exploring the endless paths around Hiraeth, the table tennis and sitting around the large table in the kitchen with family and friends. We will definitely return!

Perfect Holiday
Our second visit to this gem, and it was better than the first time. The barn is full of character and charm, and the location is amazing. You can let your children roam safely and get close to wildlife. We saw hares run past the front door, and swifts nesting above the bedroom window. I had to work for a couple of days and had a great signal with Vodafone, so the lack of wifi was not an issue.

Hiraeth Cottage
I visited Hiraeth with friends for a weekend. It had a perfect location with great views. The house was a good size with great space outside and inside. Had a wonderful time at this place however a few bad things. No WiFi. No service inside the house. If you want to contact the outside world you will have to leave the house, which can be a little frustrating in the 21st century. Also the overall hygiene of the accommodation could be improved however for some people it may seem satisfactory. Overall I had a great stay with great friends but I probably won?t return in a hurry.

The cottage is a stunning conversion and sits with spectacular views over the valley. The woodland walks, dark night skies and wildlife were exactly what we we were hoping for.
Mr Herley

The homely feel to Hiraeth is fantastic and there is the added bonus of the 'sports barn' too. We have been there twice and have recommended it to many friends. The remote location enables you to disconnect from the world. Excellent property!
