A great country feel about the place but walking distance to the local pub which provides a good meal at a very reasonable price. The gardens and surrounding area are lovely with a beautiful walking trail along the Taff river right next to the property. Our room (Orchard Room) was very spacious, private with an ensuite, very comfortable. Margaret is... More

Just returned from our stay here, tracing family history. A great find and would happily stay here again. The family are very friendly, and are good sources of local knowledge/maps/etc. Breakfasts were lovely and plentiful, and rooms were stocked with almost anything you might need. I get the impression that Margaret really likes people, and so enjoys having the B... More

This was our second stay at the Gelynis while visiting family in the area. We had a warm welcome from Margaret and a delicious breakfast. The room was comfortable, and although close to the M4, surprisingly quiet. The location, close to the Taff Trail, is convenient for the City, yet rural, with great views of Castle Coch. We will definitely... More

A country experience, yet only 5 miles out of Cardiff, close to M4 junction, and within walking distance of Radyr railway station with frequent trains into town. A very personal greeting from Margaret, spotless quiet room despite the proximity of the motorway, and a wonderful cooked breakfast. Good walks from the frknt door along the River Taff.Very good value for... More

Our choice of Gelynis Farm B & B was based on its location--we wanted to stay near, but not in, Cardiff. The location was perfect. So was the b & b. The "farm" in Gelynis Farm is for real--we were among horses and sheep, and although we weren't far from the motorway we felt as though we were on a... More

My partner and I stayed here for one night in May and were more than happy! Margaret is an excellent hostess. Her communication via email before our stay was good and she accommodated our needs perfectly. We found the accommodation easily and were greeted by Margaret on arrival. Our room was beautifully clean with everything we needed for our stay.... More

We stayed from Friday to Monday. Easy to find not far from motorway, easy to get into Cardiff and other locations. Accommodation clean with heating and shower. Breakfasts lovely - Margaret very friendly and accommodating, she was very concerned to make sure that my partner (who has to have gluten free diet) was properly looked after. Going for breakfast and... More

Margaret runs a lovely B&B not far off a busy road outside Cardiff. Our room was stocked with cuteness and tidy country charm. The amenities are contemporary and appropriate, Wi-fi worked perfectly (not a small thing out in the country) and the views and scenery (including a small castle) were out of a picture book. To top it off, the... More
