Cosy barn conversion in an idyllic countryside setting in the heart of Ceredigion.

This peaceful barn retreat is located just a couple of miles outside of the village of Llanilar which has a convenient village shop, bar and restaurant. There are countryside and woodland walks to be had directly from the doorstep, walk along the nearby stream and keep an eye out for local birdlife. The popular seaside town of Aberystwyth can be reached within six miles where you will find a wealth of bars, restaurants and shops to choose from or take a walk along its promenade. Why not venture to Aberaeron, just  13-miles and enjoy a famous honey ice cream or delicious fish and chips and watch the boats or walk to the pebble beach. Only 20-miles away is the beautiful seaside resort of New Quay, the town has a variety of shops, eateries, a wildlife marine centre, two golden sandy beaches and a picturesque harbour. Enjoy boat trips offering dolphin watching and a range of water sports. Explore the Dylan Thomas trail and follow the footsteps of Wales’ best-loved poet who once lived in the town. Walkers can join part of the coastal footpath, which covers over 60 miles with breath-taking views. Or visit Wales' only silver mine visitor attraction, dramatic waterfalls, or take a trip on a steam train with the Vale of Rheidol Railway.

As you enter the barn you are welcomed into a cosy, open-plan, lounge/kitchen/diner. Light your very own wood burner in the evenings and curl up in the comfortable lounge which has ample seating and a Smart TV to watch your favourite programmes. The stylish kitchen is equipped with an electric oven, induction hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave and a built-in Quooker boiling water tap. You will also find a selection of crockery and cooking utensils so you can make the most of the space and whip up a light lunch or a delicious supper. There is a dining table for four provided.

Spent a week at Swallow Barn and found it was an ideal spot to use as a central base to tour all of Wales. The cottage was immaculate and well set out with an open plan downstairs. Provisions in the fridge were greatly appreciated upon arrival and the kitchen had everything and more we needed to cater for ourselves. The cottage is down a gravel traRead moreck but caused no issues and set well back in a lovely sun trap, we enjoyed our evenings outside. We would highly recommend and would stay again Hide

If you are looking to stay in this area then this is a lovely cottage conversion. Despite being on the south side of Aberystwyth the location also gives quick access to the town and areas to the North. Access to the property from the allocated car parking is via a path which slopes up. Although it is well designed within the limits of the site, thoRead morese with bad mobility may struggle with the gradient. Good patio/garden area for spotting the plentiful wildlife in the surrounding trees. Hide

This was a beautiful, well maintained property in a lovely, very rural setting. Very peaceful location and a very comfortable barn conversion but close to amenities. We had a lovely holiday and the sun shone every day. The garden area is a lovely late afternoon/evening sun trap to sit with a glass of wine.

The barn is surrounded by wonderful countryside and although secluded, it is an easy drive to the coast. The barn itself was immaculate upon our arrival and exceeded all our expectations. A thoughtful welcome pack of essentials was greatly appreciated. The barn is very spacious with all the amenities you would ever need and its design and decor addRead more to the relaxing atmosphere. All the family throughly enjoyed our time at Swallow Barn and we will be returning. Hide

We had a fantastic time at this amazing property; it was stylish, comfortable, spacious, super clean and in a really pretty location. A lovely welcome pack of essentials (milk, bread etc.) was also a bonus. We thoroughly recommend it!
