“A warm,relaxed and peaceful retreat.”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This is a beautiful barn conversion that is well-equipped and warm. It is a great location with the countryside on the doorstep, lots of opportunities for walks and it is so quiet and peaceful. It is also within easy reach of Cardiff which has lots to offer all ages (especially if it is wet!). The whole family enjoyed staying here and the children particularly liked the large trampoline in the garden.

Lovely converted barn,tastefully decorated and includes everything you need for your stay. Bob and Ceri were very friendly and welcoming hosts. It made a great base for exploring Cardiff and the surrounding area.

“Cosy & comfortable”
Reviewed 7 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

Very warm and cosy, characterful barn convertion opposite owners home. Top of the hill overlooking the valley. You have to navigate a single track road to get there, but worth it for the peace, quiet and view. Two bedrooms, one double and one with a single/roll-out bed. Open plan lounge, kitchen, diner with wood burning stove makes for cosy nights. Wi-fi connection dodgey, but owner provides dongle that will pick up a signal (just). BBQ and play area with trampoline and swing for summer days. Walking distance to pub/restaurant, short drive to another pub.
