With Christmas behind us, and Spring almost on the horizon, we open The Byre again to welcome guests from far and near!

We hope that 2022 will be more like pre Covid 19 seasons, and that guests will be able to enjoy fully the wonders of our local area.

We have spruced up The Byre over January and are now ready to welcome guests again.  From us, to you, croeso!

Welcoming guests this Summer………






It has been a very difficult 12 months for all of us.  Here, at The Byre we look forward to welcoming guests, old and new this Summer.

As soon at the Welsh Government confirms the dates for opening self-catering properties we will be ready for a bumper Summer season.

Even now, with snowdops and crocus already brightening up the gardens and hedgerow, and with early lambs in the fields, it feels as if Spring is just around the corner and we can look forward to the longer, warmer days ahead!

‘We enjoyed a lovely (ridiculously) sunny stay at The Byre last week. Such a well located cottage for great walks up Pen y Fan as well as allowing us to explore The Black Mountain range nearer to Llandeilo. Not that you need to go anywhere really as there are endless walking opportunities from the doorstep. We felt very welcome and Lesley was always on hand to give us excellent tips and advice to help plan our days. The fridge was stocked with some essentials to get us started which was perfect; the cottage was clean, warm and quiet – really couldn’t have asked or more. Thank you and we hope to be back soon!’ J. Houlston, 22nd September 2020


‘Thank you Lesley for our fabulous Bank holiday weekend in your beautiful, clean, comfortable and airy cottage.  I recommend this stay to anyone.  The Byre is perfectly situated to take in the breath-taking views of  Cwm Gwennol (Swallow Valley) below; the ever changing light across this Valley is perfect for Photographers and Instagram enthusiasts alike. Lovely to spend time exploring the wonderful garden accompanied by the chickens.  We walked for miles each day with the dogs, and the forest roads are perfect for E-bikes – We did the 13 mile circular route along The Epynt Way under Mynydd Bwlch-y-Groes and Cwm y Glyn (Halfway Valley) with ease – again amazing views!

Great running routes through the Crychan Forest, and a lovely Sunday lunch at the Shoemaker’s Arms! Diolch!!’ D. Cheal, Kingston Upon Thames, 31st August 2020
