I have stayed at Plas Hen several times over the past three months as it is located just down the road from the National Trust property of Dyffryn (I am currently carrying out some consultancy work there). After a hard days work Plas Hen is the perfect location to relax and unwind. Quite country setting, lovely garden and comfortable rooms... More

Helen was a perfect host. We stayed here rather than in Cardiff when we came over to see Wales v Scotland in March. What a great idea! We shared a taxi into Cardiff on the Saturday and caught our own taxi back that evening. It worked out cheaper than paying the over-priced Cardiff international weekend rates and much more relaxing... More

I stayed at Plas Hen Country House recently with my friend as we were photographing a local wedding. The house was beautiful and welcoming, with a fab country kitchen, modern bedrooms and bathrooms. Helen was so friendly and made us feel at home. The food was delicious, we couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Helen!

We stayed for two nights to get a quiet week end in the countryside and it couldn't have been better. From the excellent room and facilities to our lovely host Helen and her marvelous breakfasts. You will enjoy an absolutely gorgeous house in beautiful country side just minutes away from everything you might need. I thoroughly recommend!

The warmth of Helen's welcome was an indicator of what was to come. Plas Hen is in a peaceful spot that is a minute or two's drive from the A48 - very convenient for Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. Our room was spacious, with a large and very comfortable bed. Breakfasts were delicious, served by Helen in her beautiful... More

We stayed at Plas Hen recently while visiting our daughter at the university in Cardiff. Plas Hen is ideally located for Cardiff - a short drive out of the city. It is surrounded by countryside if you are looking for peaceful accommodation as we were. Having said this it is not far from an A road (no noise though) so... More

We booked Plas Hen for a one night stay. Helen was extremely helpful when I rang to book and this continued when we arrived. We were greeted with warm welshcakes and a friendly chat that made you feel very welcome. Helen went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable in our room. Breakfast was excellent!

Helen was a lovely thoughtful host who made my stay relaxed and comfortable. The room was clean and cosy and the welcome helped me to get ready for my business meeting the next day. The breakfast was well prepared and presented with fresh pineapple! The evening after my meeting I had a reflexology session with Helen which was very good.... More

After leaving the A48 and traveling the short distance up the country lanes, Plas Hen appears and first impressions count for a lot, the house and gardens are immaculately maintained. The welcome by Helen can only be described as biblical, and normally reserved for the prodigal son, truly warm and friendly After being show to our room we were given... More
