Total Comfort in a Peaceful Setting

From the start we were made to feel welcome with a tea tray and bara brith. The cottage is warm and has everything you'll need for a relaxing stay. The village is peaceful and the villagers very friendly. If you do stay in abbey-cwm-hir make sure you visit The Hall - its an experience not to be missed - a true jewel in Wales' Crown. The church in the village is very pretty and well worth a visit. We'll do our best to stay at Happy Union Stables again.

Queit and Peaceful

The Happy Union Stables are perfect for a queit family getaway. The stables have been restored to a very high standard and its layout is perfect for a family (we had 2, so 4 adults, 2 babies and a 5 year old).
The owners live next door in the wonderful pub and couldn;t be more helpful.
The village is very quiet so bear this in mind if you're wanting somewhere with more things going on.
wonderful holiday in scenic & peaceful surroundings

Excellent holiday stay in a lovely area of mid wales. Super weather, lots to do and see and not too far from some wonderful beaches. Cottage was an excellent base, albeit a little off the beaten track but never the less it is a superb barn conversion, very comfortable and extremely well equiped & the owners are very welcoming & friendly.
warm and comfortable

we had a fabulous Christmas. The cottage was extremely clean, warm and comfortable, ideal for a Christmas with minus 10 temperatures outside, for myself, my daughter and her husband and their children, aged 3 and 5.. The owners, who run the pub next door, were friendly and welcoming. I would recommend it to anyone for a winter break

A true "Get away from it all " break in a tranquil setting.

Happy Union Stables is ideal for those who like the idea of staying in a romantic and tranquil setting. The cottage is lovely and the owners are very friendly and helpful.
The bara brith provided on arrival delicious and devoured all too quickly by my sons.
Cycling from the cottage was a delight as the roads were so quiet and safe and the Elan Valley and aberystwyth well worth a visit. A guided tour of the hall at abby- Cwm - Hir is guaranteed to put a smile on your face, very quirky and interesting. You can also round off the day perfectly with a drink at the Happy Union Inn.
