About Ralph Mike Newman

We moved back to Wales in 2002 and chose this part for its beauty and relaxed atmosphere in a community based environment.

Ralph Mike Newman purchased this barn in 2002

Why Ralph Mike Newman chose Tregaron

We moved into a 200 year old farmhouse and with it acquired the shell of a barn which craved conversion to a home rather than storage.

What makes this barn unique

By 2004, the barn had been carefully renovated to provide comfortable and homely surroundings in a superb rural setting.

Rural Holiday Cottage In Ceredigion, Family And Dog Friendly

It’s described as rural, and it is , and that’s part of the attraction

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little cottage with all the comforts of home, the outdoor space is truly amazing, the wildlife around the place is amazing to watch, and who could imagine swimming in a heated pool with birds of prey circling above, the more I describe it the more I want to be back there, the owners live next door but don’t be put off by that, they are such nice people, and couldn’t do enough to help with our stay, thanks mike and iris for making our stay so enjoyable 😊

Peaceful cottage with lovely pool

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the peaceful location, and having a swimming pool entirely to ourselves was a wonderful extra addition. Our sons (aged 6 and 7) really enjoyed being able to look around the rest of the owners land, see the chickens, run across the field and see the ducks on the pond. The owners were very friendly and accommodating, and they had provided inflatables for the pool which our sons enjoyed. They also kindly allowed us to store out bikes under cover. This was our first visit to the area near to Tregaron, although we are regular visitors to Ceridigion, and often holiday near to Aberporth, so it was great to explore a new area. There was plenty to see and do, and we particularly enjoyed the cycle trail to Aberystwyth (but did it in sections as the road parts were a bit too steep for our 6 year old whose bike does not have gears). We enjoyed Devil's bridge, but if you want to see another spectacular waterfall would recommend the Hafod estate - take the walk to the Caverns Cascade, it was amazing. The owner had some information in the cottage about Hafod. We found the cottage well equipped for a family of four and as the Olympics were on during our visit we appreciated having a good sized TV to watch it on. The fish and chips in Tregaron were good too. Fantastic holiday, would recommend it
