An idyllic meat-free country hideaway offering peace & tranquillity in an unspoilt part of Wales. Ideal for a romantic break & children love it too.

This 18th century thatched cottage is beautifully restored - quiet beaches, castles & wilderness are all nearby. Relax in the luxurious hot tub & count the stars/sheep!

The space
This is an amazing place to unwind, be creative and enjoy the silence and the stars. Hidden down a long track yet only 10 mins from shops, you’ll feel like you’re in another world. Restored with original materials and methods from a ruin and considered by many to be the best restoration in Wales. Almost everything is sourced from the valley - the oak beams, hazel in the wattle and daub walls and even the wool in the curtains all came from the hillside. Even the water comes from a spring and tastes beautiful.

Inside, the cottage is much bigger than it looks in pictures and is full of antiques and nice touches. The kitchen is very well equipped (NutriBullet etc) the cast-iron bath holds two with a view of the sunset and the fireplace will keep you warm no matter what the weather! In winter this is boosted by a new underfloor heating system.

It’s ideal for a romantic couple but also works well for families and small groups - actually waking up on the sofa bed near the stove is rather special!

Outside the new south-facing hot tub and picnic area has an amazing view of the mountains - you can see the Preseli Mountains 40 miles away in Pembrokeshire! There is also acres of beautiful garden, a dedicated bonfire area if you want one and a stream that runs just behind the cottage. Red kites and buzzards swirl over you constantly.

It’s the sort of place that seems to bring out the best in people, if you’re coming a long way then I recommend at least three days to really relax and appreciate it. I have tons of good tips for good things to see from castles to beaches and wildlife.

I can also offer really good vegan meals direct to your door, early / late checkout, flowers on arrival and I’ll accept well behaved cats & dogs too.
You’ve never been anywhere like it.

Where you’ll be

Llanybydder, Cymru, United Kingdom

The charming town of Lampeter is 4 miles away and has all the provisions (and pubs!) you might need during your stay. We will provide a basket of logs for the wood burner and you may purchase further wood as required. If you like mountain biking, there are several trails Abergorlech and the surrounding area. The coast is not far by car, you can get to the town of Aberaeron in about 30 minutes, there are many beautiful beaches along the Cardigan coast which are easy to reach by car. The Brecon Beacons and Pembrokeshire are both an hour away.

* COVID-19 UPDATE - FARMHOUSE & COTTAGE ARE ACCEPTING BOOKINGS FROM EASTER - WITH FULL REFUND IN THE EVENT OF MORE LOCKDOWNS * Hi there! Croeso / Welcome to this wonderful part of Wales. As you’ll see below, I’ve got some spectacularly beautiful places to stay here which will reconnect you with a simpler way of life. As a lifelong vegan the one rule is that you are not allowed to eat meat or fish here. Why not? Because I stick to my beliefs and I know that smart people can rise to the challenge. To make it easier, I offer top-notch vegan meals (where you only pay what you think is fair!), a well specified kitchen and loads of free advice. In fact, more and more people are coming for my home-cooked meals - see the link below. If you’re in any doubt about visiting - just read the reviews on here, people really do have life-changing experiences every time. The area is outstandingly beautiful and unspoilt - the beaches here are like Devon or Cornwall but without the crowds! A realm means "a world - real or imagined" and this place really is magical. Choose from a thatched cottage which is ideal for couples or the Victorian farmhouse which makes for the perfect family getaway or birthday party location. There’s also glamping and camping options coming soon too - ideal for kids, dogs and retreats. If you’ve got a special request or perhaps a tight budget - message me and I’ll see what I can do. I am a very reasonable chap and lots of fun. I welcome everyone and will show you a side of Wales that most people never see! So that’s a bit about me - check out the properties below and start to make that dream countryside holiday a reality... x PLEASE FOLLOW MY INSTA & SOCIAL MEDIA FOR DEALS & INSPIRATION! @robinsrealmuk

During your stay
I love socialising with guests and helping with day trip ideas or making a Scrabble / pool match more interesting. Read the comments and you’ll see the highlight for many guests was the time I took them to the best pub, went on a pretty walk or provided some silly comedy! However I realise you’re on holiday so I won’t intrude unless I’m asked. But you should ask - locals know best - think of me as a fun optional extra!
