‘The owners have cleverly converted a vintage, 1964 Leyland Titan double-decker bus into quirky self-catering accommodation in the Teifi Valley.
‘It sleeps six people in two double rooms with a sofa bed downstairs and is perfect for couples, families or friends who want to stay in a place that is as much about the holiday experience as the destination.
‘How could you forget your holiday on a bus? There is a shop on-site selling local produce and crafts (and Welsh ice-cream!), as well as a bar (open for events but selling organic wines, ales and spirits at other times), and the venue is only a mile from the village of Drefach Felindre and the Tafarn John Y Gwas pub for a fine pint of local ale.
