History of Hen Ysgubor...

The main property Ty Uchaf (Upper House) was originally a mining manager's cottage, built in the 18th century and is closely connected to local history. It also served as a Public House for the miners and drovers at one time and is featured on the Miners Tourist Information Board outside the Teifi Inn. John Wesley (1703-1791) the preacher who founded the Methodist Movement, with his brother Charles Wesley (1707-1788), was said to have stayed at Ty Uchaf in 1764. An old miners track is now a delightful walk suitable for the whole family, leading from the cottage to the old mine. Only a few miles to the south is the historic Strata Florida Abbey; to the north you can visit Devil's Bridge with cascading waterfalls, a narrow gauge steam railway and the world famous three bridges built one on top of the other; a short drive away from beautiful sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay and its famous bottlenose dolphins and the Marine Wildlife Centre; Aberystwyth and Borth are just nearby with perfect surfing conditions, a river estuary and beach side golf course; only 25 miles from the Snowdonia National Park; within easy access to the National Gardens of Wales, Dan-yr- Ogof Caves, kite feeding centres, fish farms, riding schools and mining museums to name just a few attractions available for fantastic days out. The secluded location of Ffair Rhos is ideal for tourists to have either a relaxed holiday in an upland area or to use it as a base to tour. A fantastic area for outdoor and adventurous pursuits, including adrenalin sports, both inland and on the coast. Stargazing and astronomy - Very little light pollution makes Ffair Rhos one of the best places to view the night sky in mainland Britain.
