Ty Cefn Tregib

Not suitable for children

Not suitable for pets

An authentic Mongolian yurt with colour, style and a ‘yurtmobile’ housing the kitchen and bathroom. Great views of the Towy valley...

Another wonder of colour to go with Waterfall Yurt at Ty Cefn Tregib; Gert’s yurt is a little further from the house than its sibling. Its private piece of hillside is bounded by trees on three sides with a view out over the Towy Valley and only the occasional ponies in the field next door for neighbours. A little modernity meets the traditional style of the yurt in the form of the yurt mobile. This handy hut, a few metres from your yurt, contains your own private shower and loo and your kitchen. The yurt itself has a wood-burner to keep it cosy and a big double bed, which might also not be quite traditional, but certainly makes for a comfy camping experience. The two cosy camping chairs on the deck are perfect for sitting out in the evening and watching the sun set on the hills and the village below. The area abounds with historical and cultural places to visit. Llandeilo is just a stroll away with some great independent shops and a wealth of places to eat serving everything from fish & chips to fine food for a special occasion.

Our guests say...

We had a amazing 4 nights in gurts yurt. Every little detail was thought of. The yurt it's self was beautiful. We went at the end of October and we were lovely and warm thanks to the wood burning stove. Cass, Mary and John were chatty, helpful and friendly. Left us to our own devices but we're on hand if we needed anything. The shepherds hut housing the kitchen and bathroom was great not to far from the yurt and had everything you could need in there. The views from the yurt were amazing and didn't fail to stun us every morning when we woke up. In the lovely big comfortable bed. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. Can't wait to visit again next year .

A magical place...up through the trees and just you and the bats. Owners very friendly and helpful, just let us get on with it. Lovely kitchen and bathroom area and, of course, the wonderful yurt. Loads to do and see in the area. Loved it!

Our stay was lovely and peaceful. We stayed for seven days and we had plenty to explore. It was lovely being so close to nature yet with all the modern things we needed. The setting was beautiful and the yurt was as nice as we hoped for from the website photos. Lots of thoughtful touches to make it extra special.

Secluded and idyllic location, far away from the stresses and strains of modern life. Comfortable and well equipped with everything catered for, including an emergency food stash if required! Horses next door, birds of prey circling ahead. Bikes provided a welcome alternative to walking. Fabulous countryside and welcoming and charming hosts, who have thought of everything to ensure a memorable experience, and one to be repeated.

Wonderfully peaceful. Cass welcomed us on arrival and said unless we needed anything she wouldn't bother us again - we never saw anybody else for four days! I think this proves how good this site is.

Mervyn

It was really relaxing, owners very welcoming and we were left alone to do our own thing which was what we really wanted.

29/05/2015

Thom

We had an incredible stay in Gert's Yurt. We experienced complete relaxation within minutes of arriving. Our hosts were very welcoming and had left tea and biscuits for us when we arrived. The nights were cold when we stayed, but the log burner heated the yurt very quickly in the mornings. Peaceful surroundings and plenty of walks nearby - Carreg Cennin castle is close and well worth a visit. Overall a brilliant stay and we can't wait to go back.

"We enjoyed it very much. It was an excellent place to stay, better than I had imagined. It was very well run, both in a practical and in an aesthetic sense. It was excellent value for money. I can recommend it to  anyone who would like a retreat from the world, a romantic break or a practical base for walking and exploring this rich and diverse county in Wales. The weather was wet but we were cosy, warm and very happy. Its also a very beautiful yurt. The owners are very generous and welcoming."

Marged

"It was perfect. Peaceful, everything we needed. Left alone to just enjoy our stay. Everything was well prepared. Logs for log burner, milk in fridge for us. Very cosy and perfect romantic getaway. I hour from the beach and lots of lovely walks right on the doorstep."

Suzanne

"Yes despite the weather had a fab stay. Everything was spotlessly clean and well kept."

13/05/2013

Donna

"We settled in in no time with the log burner making it warm as toast.  a few glasses of homemade wine later and we were asleep, so relaxed.  next day had planned to walk but with the sound of rain sprinkling on the yurt we decided to stay where we were and spent a gentle day eventually emerging from the yurt early afternoon to have a quiet amble in the local area.  The next day (Kemal's birthday) was like a dream come true.  Clear skies, beautiful sunshine and we did an amazing walk up the hills around Usk reservoir with great views of the Black mountains and the Brecon Beacons.  The sunlight fading across the moors as we trudged through the bogs back to the car is a sight I will keep in my memory for years to come.  Our new yurt home was the perfect place to go back to.  Am missing it now"

Abbi

"We had picked 2 of the best days of the summer in terms of weather.  Marvelous for staying in Gert's Yurt.  The spot is so quiet & secluded, the Yurt very comfortable.  Haven't 'camped' in over 30 years but could go back if this is the style & quality.  I like privacy for a shower & toilet & this gave it if you ignored the horse in the field!  The 'wee' wood burning stove in the Yurt was good fun & a bonus in the later evenings at this time of year.   The hosts were very accommodating & friendly but not intrusive."

07/09/2012

Robert

"Myself and my partner, Jon couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. Even with the rain, it just made the yurt cosier. The bathroom is comfortable, as is the kitchen (not that we cooked), and sitting outside watching the stars on a clear night was fantastic.  Very comfortable bed, we both slept well all weekend especially on the coldest night when we lit the woodburner. The local village has plenty of good places to eat and there are soo many things to do in the area you won't be bored. Our hosts, Mary and John, were very welcoming and left us to own our devices which was perfect. We explored the woodland behind the yurt and after a short search found the waterfall and rushing stream that we could hear since we arrived.  Beautiful view, quiet surroundings, perfect for two to get away with no tv or radio (amazing!)     Didn't want to go home. Would love to visit again."

Natalie

"Absolutely fabulous!!!!  It was one of the best yurts we had stayed in, and we have stayed in quite a few.  It was clean, well kitted out and they had thought of everything.  The shepherd's hut was spotless and had everything you would expect in a fully functioning kitchen and shower room!"

25/06/2012

Anabella

"Loved it despite the rain! We were very warm and the yurt was beautiful."

23/09/2011

Judi

"It was like camping but with none of the hardships! The yurt was characterful, cozy and warm with a log-burning stove. We had a comfy bed, well equipped kitchen, excellent shower and all in a lovely situation beside its own waterfall! There is lots to do in the area - from serious mountain hikes, endless castles, peaceful river valleys and quaint towns. And the lovely coastline is easy to get to, uncrowded and beautiful."

A little history

Mary and John bought Ty Cefn Tregib in 1989 as redundant farm buildings and converted the main coach house and stable block themselves into a large family home. They then set about reclaiming and refurbishing the other buildings on the land. When all the children had left home, around fifteen years ago, they started operating as a B&B.

The yurt debate...

The yurts are a reasonably recent development but could have come about a little sooner. Some time around 2001, Mary saw one and was instantly smitten. She then spent a remarkably persistent six years convincing John that it was a good idea. Once the first yurt was up, it became an instant success and was soon followed by a second. Now John is thoroughly on board, and they've joined forces to create an incredible pagoda-style yurt of their own design. Cass, their daughter, added an Airstream to the mix and since then it's gone from strength to strength. 

The reason Mary & John do so much to bring to people to Ty Cefn Tregib is because they feel so privileged to live in such a beautiful place and thoroughly enjoy sharing it with others. All the children have now settled back in the area with children of their own and everyone is involved with “Ty Cefn Tregib” in one way or another.

Wildlife & Environment

Ty Cefn Tregib is in an incredible location in the westernmost corner of the Brecon beacons National Park. Mary and John's land adjoins a woodland nature reserve (Tregib Woods) where there are deer, badgers and foxes aplenty. There are also Red Kites, Buzzards, and a wealth of other woodland and farmland birds. Ty Cefn Tregib is not off grid at present, but has been designed with a view to doing so. Use of the brook to generate hydroelectric power is currently under investigation.

Booking Terms

Canopy & Stars low price promise
 
Book with us in confidence knowing you won’t find that place cheaper elsewhere. All of the prices we display are set and matched by our Owners. (In this world of foreign currency, we do have to say 'subject to exchange rates' for some of our European places.)

What does ‘from price’ mean?
 
Our ‘from price’ is based on a four night stay in low season and designed to help you to compare different prices across our collection. Some of our Owners vary their nightly rates and check in days throughout the year, so it may differ from the rate quoted below the calendar. It is quite common (although by no means universal) for places to charge a little more in peak season or for shorter stays, to cover changeover costs. Consider booking longer stays during the cooler months if you’re looking for the lowest nightly rates.

2.2 Amendments and cancellations can only be accepted in accordance with the booking conditions of the Owner of your Arrangements. The Owner may charge the cancellation or amendment charges shown in their booking conditions (which may be as much as 100% of the cost of the Arrangements and will normally increase closer to the date of departure). The Owner may charge cancellation or amendment charges in accordance with its own booking conditions, however for the sake of convenience only, we have outlined the Owner’s charges at clause 2.3 and 2.4 below. Please note that these are the Owner’s own cancellation and amendments charges, not Canopy & Stars’, and therefore the Owner may vary their charges as they wish, without notice to us. The correct charges will be notified to you at the time of your cancellation or amendments.  

 

2.3 Owner’s General Cancellation Charges:

2.3.1 Cancellation by you at any time will result in your deposit being forfeited, as all deposits are non-refundable.

 

2.3.2 All monies paid for a holiday (deposit and balance) are non-refundable within 10 weeks before check in date.

 

2.3.3 Cancellation of any holiday after it has been paid in full and at a date 10 weeks or more in advance of your check in date, will result in forfeiture of your deposit (or an amount equivalent where one was not paid as the holiday was paid in full) and the balance being returned to you.

2.4.1 Alterations to your Booking can only be made more than 10 weeks prior to the check in date, after which time alterations will be treated as cancellation. All alterations are subject to availability and may incur a £30 adminstration fee.

 

2.4.2 Differences in the total amount payable resulting from alterations will be refunded to you in the case of a decrease in price and paid by you in the case of increases in price.

The exact charges will be notified to you by the Owner at the time of cancellation and/or can be found in the Owner’s own booking conditions which are available from the Owner on request.

 

3. Changes and Cancellations by the Owner

We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if the Owner needs to make a significant change to your confirmed Arrangements or to cancel them. We will also liaise between you and the Owner in relation to any alternative Booking offered by the Owner but we will have no further liability to you.

 

4. Complaints

Because the contract for your Booking is between you and the Owner, any queries or concerns should be addressed to them. In the event that you have any complaint about your stay, please notify the Owner as soon as possible. If you don’t follow this procedure there will be less opportunity for the Owner to investigate and resolve your complaint and so make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Delays may also mean that amount of compensation you may be entitled to may be reduced. Whether or not your complaint is dealt with satisfactorily, please also contact us as we appreciate all feedback. It’s important to us and the Owner to know that you’ve enjoyed your stay or if anything could have been improved.

 

5. Pricing

Canopy & Stars reserve the right to amend advertised prices at any time on behalf of the Owner. We also reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices.Special note: changes and errors sometimes occur.

 

6. Information & Accuracy

The information and prices shown on this website are varied from time to time and may change between the time you first view a property and make a Booking. You should check that all the details are as you expect prior to making a Booking. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the properties (including the features and extras available) may be incorrectly described and/or priced. If we discover this is the case after you have made a Booking, we reserve the right to contact you with details of the correct information and/or pricing and will give you the option to:

(1) proceed with the Booking based on the correct information and/or pricing, which may require the payment of an additional amount by you;

OR

(2) subject to availability, change your booking dates to dates when the pricing can be honoured ad so no additional charge to you. In the event that a lower price can be offered for alternative dates then the difference would be refunded;

OR

(3) cancel the Booking. If we do not receive your instructions within 5 days of contacting you, we reserve the right to cancel your Booking without liability to you.

 

7. Our Responsibility for your Booking

Your contract is with the Owner and its booking conditions apply. As Agent, we accept no responsibility for the actual provision of the Booking. Our responsibilities are limited to making the Booking in accordance with your instructions and acting properly in accordance with our legal duties as an Agent. We accept no responsibility for any information about the Booking that we pass on to you in good faith. However, in the event that we are found liable to you on any basis whatsoever, our maximum liability to you is limited to twice the cost of your Booking (or the appropriate proportion of this if not everyone on the Booking is affected). We do not exclude or limit any liability for death or personal injury that arises as a result of our negligence or that of any of our employees whilst acting in the course of their employment.

 

8. Pets

Not all properties accept pets. If you wish to take your pet on holiday, please advise us before booking and we can check whether pets are accepted at the property. You must obtain the prior consent of the Owner before taking any pets to the property. A nightly charge may be made by the Owner for each pet and additional terms may apply.

 

9. VAT

Many of the Owners of properties in the Canopy & Stars portfolio are not registered for VAT in which case no tax is payable. Where VAT is payable, the tax is included in the advertised holiday rental price.

 

10. Visa, passport and health requirements.

Unless you tell us otherwise, we assume that all members of your party are British citizens who hold or will hold full British passports valid for the entire duration of the Arrangements you chose to purchase. Information on visa, passport and health requirements, where given and applicable, is so given on this basis. Requirements may change and you are therefore strongly recommended to check the up to date position with the Owner of the Booking, Passport Office, appropriate embassy or consulate or your doctor as applicable in good time before the commencement of your holiday.

 

11. Insurance

You are strongly recommended to take out personal travel insurance for all members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance you purchase is adequate and appropriate for your particular needs. Please read your policy details and take them with you on holiday.

 

12. Special requests

If you have any special requests (for example dietary requirements, cots or room location), please let us know at the time of booking. We will pass on all such requests to the Owner, but unfortunately, we can't guarantee that they will be met and we will have no liability to you if they are not.

 

13. Group Bookings

Not all Owners accept Bookings for a single sex group (for example, a stag or hen party). Guests wanting to make such a Booking should check with us beforehand to enable us to check whether the Owner is prepared to accept the Booking. We will then advise you accordingly. In event that an Owner does not accept this type of Booking then it is with regret, that the Booking may be cancelled and cancellation fees may apply. It is the Guest’s responsibility to enquire with Canopy & Stars and/or check on our website beforehand to make sure that this type of booking is permitted.

 

14. Maximum Numbers

Please note that except by prior arrangement confirmed in writing, only the number of persons specified on a booking confirmation may occupy  a property. Most owners reserve the right to refuse admittance or revoke a booking if this condition is not observed and you are unlikely to receive any refund.

 

15. Your Responsibilities

Please note that you have a contract with the Owner of the property. As such you are under a responsibility to behave in a proper, appropriate and legal manner whilst staying at the property with due respect to the Owner, the Property and other guests and their property. You are responsible for informing the Owner of any losses or damage to the property as soon as possible. Please note that you will be liable to pay the Owner for any losses or damage to the property caused by you or a member of your party (except reasonable wear and tear). Some Owners will also require damage deposits. You must also leave the property by the check-out time specified on your booking. If any guest behaves inappropriately or improperly (of which the Owner will be the final judge on their Property), or illegally, the Owner reserves the right to ask the guest and their party (at their discretion) to leave the Property before the end of the holiday period and/or refuse any future bookings from you.  Any refund for so doing will be at the entire discretion of the Owner. In addition, the Owner reserves the right to sue the guest for any loss, damage or injury caused to the Owner, the Property or to other guests and/or their property. As agent, we will have no liability to you in these circumstances.
