Bryncarnedd Country Cottages in Mid Wales are located 1 mile from Aberystwyth’s town centre. Nestled in the immediate countryside at the top of Aberystwyth, these cottages enjoy the closeness to the town as well as being just far enough outside to enjoy a truly rural feeling during your holiday.

On site we have 13 properties (3* and 4* graded), 6 lodges, and 2 glamping pods available for hire all year around, as well as an outdoor pool and hot tub (seasonal).

Bryncarnedd was once a busy dairy farm, providing milk for Aberystwyth and the surrounding area. Since its demise, the farmhouse and its surrounding buildings have been sympathetically converted into self catering holiday cottages. The 10 cottages, named after traditional farm buildings, vary in size sleeping from 2 to 10 persons, with 1 to 4 bedrooms – and each one uniquely decorated and furnished with luxurious fittings to provide the perfect accommodation for your holiday. Majority of the cottages have en-suite bedrooms, some of the cottages have patios and gardens. All of the cottages have an open plan layout, enabling you to cook, eat and live in a bright and open environment, making the most of your valuable time together.

We have also two houses just outside of the converted farm buildings, a 3 bedroom property, Cambrian View, and a 4 bedroom property, Brynhyfryd, both built to very high specifications and enjoying amazing views over the surrounding countryside.

All of our cottages come equipped with a fully functional kitchen to include a fridge freezer, electric cooker and microwave. Some of our properties have dishwashers, and there are also some with washing machines. There is underfloor central heating for the colder months, along with Freeview TV, a DVD player and a CD player. We also offer free Wi-Fi to our cottages, however this does not extend as far as the lodges.

Onsite there is a launderette at an additional charge, as well as a children’s play area.

We are more than happy to accept pets at an additional cost – there are plenty of walks in the surrounding area. We can also provide high chairs and travel cots on request.

Several of our properties are disabled friendly, such as Brynhyfryd, Cambrian View, the Barn and the Workshop, all suitable for wheelchair users and properties such as the Dairy, the Calf Suite and the Milking Parlour suitable for those with limited mobility.

All rates are inclusive of electricity and fresh linen – towels and tea towels are provided.

We have frequent special offers and last minute deals – please contact us for further information or check our online availability. For further information visit:


From Machynlleth area:
Follow the A487 until you see the signpost for BOW STREET - continue forward onto the A487 when entering into Bow Street and follow towards Aberystwyth. When entering Aberystwyth, which is 2.4 miles from Bow Street, turn right onto the B4572 (sign posted Clarach/Borth). This turning is directly at the top of the hill before you descend down to Aberystwyth. If you are descending and see the University on your left, you have gone too far! Once on the B4572 you will come to a bend in the road approximately 0.4 miles from when you turned, and take the left signposted ‘Bryncarnedd Caravan Park & Cottages’ and bear to the right and follow the country lane to the cottages.

From Llangurig:
Continue forward on the A44 from Llangurig, driving through Capel Bangor. At the Lovesgrove roundabout, take the 2nd exit up onto the A4159. This road takes you through Capel Dewi. You will stay in the A4159 for 1.5 miles, at which point you will turn left off this road and onto the A487. If you cannot see this left hand turn, do not worry as the A4159 carries on directly to Bow Street, where you can then turn left when you hit the A487 and follow the instructions as above.

From The South
From the south you will enter Aberystwyth by passing through Rhydyfelin. This road takes you to a roundabout, where you will need to take the 1st exit onto the A487 – this is sign posted for Penparcau. Carrying on along this road you will descend into Trefechan and then across a bridge (with the Rummers Wine Bar to your left) and into Aberystwyth. Continue to follow the A487 up the High Street, until you come to the top of town. At the top of town you will see a town clock; here you will need to turn right, taking you down Great Darkgate street. This is a one way system which will lead you to the University and the National Library. As you carry on along this road, you must keep to the MIDDLE lane. The left hand land will take you to the promenade and the right hand lane directs you back into town. The middle lane will follow onto a set of traffic lights next to a small Spar shop – follow this road. You will start to ascend Penglais hill, where you will pass first Bronglais Hospital, the National Library and then the University. At the top of this hill there is a cross roads, where you will need to take the left turn towards Clarach/Borth.
