Hidden between the colourful hills and majestic rolling landscape of Cardigan Bay, Beudy Bendigaid (Blessed Cowshed/Barn) is a beautifully restored 19th Century stone barn, which makes a gorgeous countryside retreat for up to 4 guests. This stunning location is one of Wales' best kept secrets with a magnificent collection of mountains, beaches and glorious coastline to discover. Here, you will find a place of exquisite natural beauty without the crowds of the UK's better-known destinations; a rare find in today's leisure-hungry world. This is not to say you'll be completely alone, but you'll find plenty of hidden coves and gorse-covered hills, to enjoy all to yourself. Make the most of it while you can, because secrets don't last forever.


This luxurious stone barn conversion is equipped with everything you need for an indulgent escape including the wonderful warming glow of a log burner centrepiece. The old barn has been thoughtfully restored with imaginative touches and original features throughout, creating eloquent charm and homely ambience. Although it sits next to a small boutique B&B, the cottage has plenty of seclusion and privacy, as well as truly magnetic views over the flourishing hills and valleys below.


Guests are welcomed, along with their well-behaved dogs, to explore the beautiful 8-acre grounds with numerous beauty spots a variet of natural wildlife to discover. Meander along the meadow paths towards leafy woodland, hidden pools and pockets of bird-filled wilderness. Stop on one of the benches along the way and experience a real sense of peace and tranquility. If you're quiet, you might spot one of the many native inhabitants scurrying or swooping past, with anything from red kites to sparrowhawks on show, perfectly exemplifying the rich biodiversity of the area.


Only 2.5 miles from the Ceredigion Coast Heritage Path, Beudy is just a short drive from golden beaches and breath-taking coastal walks, while boat trips can be arranged locally to see the famous Cardigan Bay dolphins. What's more, the magnificently rugged Preseli Hills and Cambrian Mountains are all within easy reach, offering a great opportunity to explore some of Britain's best-preserved natural splendours.
