A large and very comfortable house is a beautiful peaceful location with great walks from the front door. Highly recommendedMs Vicky Redding - 9th April 2018
The property was in a beautiful location and we loved the house inside and out. There was also plenty of grounds outside for the kids to play on. We would definitely go there again. It has been one of the best holidays we have had togetherMrs D Quinn - 4th September 2017
Minfon is our kind of country location property. The scenery is delightful with the river running in front of the property and meadows to exercise our dog. The lady in charge next door is a sweetheart and helps all she can. You grow into this property. We hope to return to it.Mrs Jean Cholerton - 29th August 2017
Lovely walks both ways to Llanilar to the pub and shop and the other way to Aberystwyth. Mrs Rodd - 14th August 2017
Fantastic location and very cosy old house. Great for our large family, nice local shop and we had a great time on the west coast, in Conwy and taking the dog for walks. Faultless week in wales!Mr Craig Williamson - 1st August 2017
We all had an amazing stay. Wonderful property, great location, lovely lady next door. Would definitely recommend. :)Mrs P Down - 6th June 2017
Thank you for the stay in this very comfortable and quiet property. It was a perfect location for the dog and the children who absolutely loved the river! Overall, we had a fantastic holiday and this was a great base from which to explore the area. We enjoyed our stay very, very much. Our children wanted you to know how much they loved the property. We really appreciated being able to bring our cat and would like to thank the owner for making this possible for us. Also, her aunt was absolutely lovely and made us feel very welcome. We would love to come again! Many thanks for our super holiday.Mrs Johnson - 18th April 2017

Minafon is an ideal holiday home for a large group or family. It is situated within sight and sound of The Ystwyth River and just 100 yds from cycle route 81. Red Kites and buzzards abound and pheasants walk through the garden.Mrs Steadman - 19th November 2014
Excellent sized property for the price, lovely neighbour (owner's relative), plenty to do straight from the doorstep.Ms Phillips - 3rd November 2014
