Everything about our holiday was perfect, just what we wanted. A lovely well maintained property in a perfect location, very peaceful but with easy access of many places to visit from waterfalls to the coast. A perfect holiday and we would definitely visit again.

Remote location was ideal. The nearest town (about 4 miles away), had lots is amenities including a lovely local health shop. The house was lovely, clean, homely and the owner was very helpful and polite.

A superb setting with fantastic views down to the village.The owners made us very welcome on our arrival and showed us around the cottage.On the website the cottage looked stunning and when we arrived it looked even better!The cottage is immaculate and has everything you would need for your weeks stay. Lampeter is a lovely town and you are a short distance from the coast.Overall a great place to stay.Try the dolphin trip at New Quay.

The owners have gone the extra mile with attention to detail everywhere you looked. Views over the hills were stunning from the decked area. A lovely week.
Mr Hands

This cottage is an absolute gem. The owner was the perfect hostess, she is kind and considerate, and keen for the guests to have a great time. She provided a fabulous Bara Brith loaf on arrival, which wasn't beaten for taste anywhere in Wales. The cottage was spotlessly clean and excellently appointed. Every comfort had been thought of, and we felt that we were staying in 5-star accommodation, but at a 4-star price. Of the eleven cottages that we stayed in during our UK holiday, this was easily the best.
Mr Rowan
June 2014
This is a beautiful place to stay in a fantastic location. It was immaculately clean, with a great open plan living area that seemed bigger than it appeared on the website. The owner made us feel both welcome and at home and it was child and dog friendly. There were lots of little extra touches that made it exceptional, not just the basic provisions but also shower gels, bubble bath for the children, luxurious blanket for the dog, and delicious smelling bed linen.

Accommodation was perfect - plenty of space and excellent facilities. Modern and clean and a bit quirky. Owner was very friendly, helpful and the welcome was special with freshly made cake and other basics supplied. The views from the property are superb and the location great for exploring southern Wales. Wonderful week blessed with 7 days of sunshine!

Stunning! The cottage is beautiful, luxurious, exceptionally clean and extremely comfortable, with panoramic and breathtaking views of the Welsh valleys and hills. The owners are lovely, friendly people who went out of their way to make us feel at home from the minute we arrived. They have really thought of everything, and more! Could not fault this amazing holiday property, or the wonderful owners, and would love to return as soon as we can.

10 out of 10 what a fantastically presented property. The photos do not do this property justice! The house was immaculate and the owners were friendly and welcoming. This was an excellent base to explore the mid Wales coastline and we would definitely return here.

We have just had a fantastic Christmas here. You can't fault the owners and Linda is just so friendly and lovely. The 'Old School House' is just amazing made that extra special all decorated for Christmas. The owners have thought of everything. We brought stuff that we just haven't even unpacked as it's all supplied. The hot tub and views are just beautiful. We can't recommend this place highly enough. Thank you Linda for letting use this stunning place. We will be back x

we arrived on Saturday 20th jan and was met by Linda the owner who showed us around and had fresh eggs and brownies left for us. The cottage was very comfy, clean and very well equipped. The hot tub was amazing with great views down the valley which we chilled out in after out walking the dog each afternoon.
June 2017
We are halfway through our week long stay here with our 2 small dogs. I think by the time we go home the breathtaking views from the garden and hot tub might start to seem real, they are just too perfect and what us londoners only dream about. The house is amazing, everything you need and all good quality utensils, lots of space, games and dvds, sky TV too. Lynda and Tony the owners are friendly and helpful without being in your face but there if you need something. She had made us a bara brith which was delicious! and there were some free range eggs. The hot tub makes this place even more special, it's set at the perfect temperature and the massage jets are just right. The whole area has breath taking views and friendly people. If you stay here you must go to the y Talbot in Tregaron, the burger with cheese and bacon all local produce is amazing in fact all local produce is way more tasty than anything I've tasted lately in london.
June 2017
This cottage is absolutely stunning. It has everything you need to feel at home. Beautiful views especially when the sun go down. The cottage is spotless and very modern. The owner is just lovely. It's by far the best cottage we have stayed at. The hottub was amazing it even has lights and a radio.Newquay is only a 25 min drive away.We will def book here again :-)

We wanted a base where we could tour mid and South Wales from but afforded us some rest and relaxation This cottage provides everything you could wish for in a cottage in the country. We had a really fantastic week. It's so refreshing to find a clean well appointed and equipped cottage with good quality accessories. There was plenty of towels! Bathroom , hot tub and beach towels as well as dressing gown each. The description was very accurate. The back is a real sun trap and views from the hot tub/patio table of open fields with red kites flying above were superb. It was so peaceful. Just what we wanted. A little piece of heaven. The owners were very helpful but unobtrusive. The welcome parcel was really appreciated with home made Welsh tea bread . I loved being in this little bubble and definitely wasn't ready to return to normal life which is quite unusual for me!!
March 2016
This is such a beautiful little get away. It's so peaceful and absolutely ideal for a quiet couple of days and you can even bring your dogs. Myself and my husband have been more than once over the May Bank Holiday weekends for a quiet few days. The owners are lovely as is the lovely fruit loaf that awaits you on arrival. It's very clean and modern inside with absolutely everything you would need to cook in the kitchen. We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you for having us :)

A perfect home from home! With a beautiful setting and superb interior. ..The Old School is the best holiday accommodation our family has ever stayed in. We received a very warm welcome, with every essential provided. There is nothing we could fault...Perfect...Perfect ...Perfect.

The Old School is a beautiful place to visit inside and out with the old building being retained but brilliantly modernised. Clean and with everything you could want in the kitchen and lounge well stocked with games and DVDs and we were welcomed with home made bara brith as well as some staples (milk, eggs) in the fridge. We saw red kites soaring outside and were in touching distance of lots of areas of natural beauty (Brecons, Pembroke Coast, Brechfa forest etc.). We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to come back to with the dog after a long day walking. Wonderful hosts always willing to help too. Highly recommended.

The Old School is a truly wonderful property. The owners have supplied everything you need and were very friendly and welcoming. There were even dressing gowns and slippers in the bedrooms for their guests to use! The views were totally amazing and it was lovely and peaceful.

A great property, the photos do not do it justice. The owner and her brother who lives next door were helpful and friendly people. There were plenty of places nearby to visit and plenty of walking opportunities. Had a great visit and will definitely return.
March 2019
We as a family have just got back from a wonderful, relaxing break. Very friendly welcome from Linda and a lovely touch of fresh eggs and cakes on arrival, very clean and all the holiday essentials you need, home from home really...not very often you can celebrate the hubbys birthday in a hot tub, with bubbles and watching the sun go down, even the dog felt welcome with his doggy treats. Plenty of little towns to visit and boat trips, we even got chance to see dolphins and seals in their habit, the kids loved it...Will definitely be recommending this holiday let to family and friends, hopefully will visit again in the future, thanks again
September 2017
The old school is a lovely place to holiday and relax. On arrival the owners had left fresh flowers, fresh eggs and a homemade bara brith. The conversion has been done to a very good standard and is made even better with the addition of a hot tub overlooking the surrounding countryside. There are some great places to explore nearby including Lampeter, New Quay and Aberaeron. Very nice

This Old School House is a dream.. The owners have made sure that you have everything you need to stay plus some. The hot tub and views are just beautiful. I cannot recommend this place enough. The owner are just so lovely, helpful. Dog friendly. We came for Christmas 22nd-29th Dec 2018 Christmas tree and decorations are spot on. We will definitely come back. If you want a lovely relaxing break I would say come and stay here.. I miss it already and we are only packing up to leave xx

The property was amazing and the welcome very friendly.. Lynda had gone out of her way and printed off details of half term activities for the children. The bara brith and eggs we received were fantastic as well
Mrs Dunn

The Old School is the perfect getaway.. The location is stunning with the most beautiful valley views from the garden / hot tub. The owners have thought about everything with their attention to detail. I've never stayed in such a well equipped holiday let. All rooms are so comfortable in every way. For dog lovers, it is ideal as there is a gorgeous forest walk only a few minutes drive away and if you fancy travelling 45 minutes or so, you can be at New Quay with it's gorgeous beach walks. Lampeter is only 17 minutes away and provides good shopping to top up supplies (a decent sized Co-op and Sainsbury's Local), plus the Indian takeaway there (Shapla Tandoori) is one of the best I've tasted.

Excellent base to explore some of the lovely Welsh coastline.. Stunning views over the valleys from the hot tub. This year a BBQ was added and new garden furniture. The homemade cake and little touches added by the owner of the property added a lovely personal touch to our stay.

Weekend away with friends, just what the dr ordered.. Peaceful comfortable and the hot tub was lovely. They only slight problem was there is only one bathroom. But the charm of the property out weighed that.

We stayed on 27th December and looking forward to a relaxing break away to start off the new year that way, we had just that and more, Linda and Tony made us feel at home in everyway.. what they have done to the Old School is amazing and having Linda onsite was great as we had allsorts of weather whilst we were there from snow to thunder storms and they always made sure things were working. On arrival we had a lovely hamper with goodies and prosecco and later that evening she bought round lovely chocolate brownies! Lovely walks and views, hot tub was fab and the kids loved it too! Linda also told us of some places to visit however there are plenty of maps and leaflets with things to do, the kids were kept busy with cards, board games and puzzles and even a trip to some beaches for chips! The towels and robes are a nice touch too and came in very handy which also meant less packing and washing! We would absolutely recommend this cottage and would definitely go back around the same time. Shame to have left when we did and get back to reality! Darren and Marlene Scott

We all thought the Old School was a fantastic holiday home.. Lynda was very friendly and informative suggesting areas where to visit locally, we visited the Red Kites Nature Reserve and had a great day with the kids. The kitchen was well equipped and the house was open and comfortable with plenty of room to rest and relax. The scenic views were beautiful and we liked looking at the sheep over the fence!
Mr Castle

There is nothing even remotely negative that I can put here about this cottage.. All other feedback captures this place brilliantly and, as we were leaving, they were making even more improvements to the property. We will return.
