Minafon is in a lovely location right next to the ystwyth river. Some of us swam in it several times, it’s a lovely mix of currents, eddies and still water, only waste deep this time of year. Easy walking and bicycle riding up the disused railway line that follows the river upstream, and down stream you can walk into Aberystwyth, ( might want a lift back!) Bedrooms had lovely views and one came with a visiting bat. Made full use of the well equipped kitchen, dishwasher and washing machine.
