We had such a lovely stay at Pentbontbren at the start of August. The suite was perfect - like a cottage, just without the kitchen! Our daughter loved having her own room (not to mention TV!), the décor was so nice and such a comfy bed! The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and completely set us up for the day, and... More

We recently stayed at Penbontbren and had a fantastic time. The accommodation and welcome is first class. Richard, Huw and Carol could not have been more accommodating. Us, the kids and the grandparents had a wonderful time. The accommodation is beautifully decorated, the breakfast is yummy and the garden is idyllic. It was perfect and we will be back again!

From entering the drive to leaving everything is 1st class and more than 5*. We had room four, a suite that looked out over (Kew gardens) a... More

Straight away we were made to feel very welcome along with our dog who settled in immediately! The room was beautifully well appointed with a luxurious big bed and crisp white sheets. Everything was spotless and the fridge was well stocked. A special treat came in the form of welsh cakes restocked everyday and a fresh bottle of milk in... More

I recently stayed in the beautifully decorated garden suite which was my very own cottage detached from any of the other buildings. It looks over the well maintained gardens and has its very own garden area where you can sit outside and enjoy a drink / meal. I was travelling by myself and had picked up food along the way... More

Having stayed on many occasions with Richard & Huw at their previous (and similarly excellent) establishment near Cardiff we were very keen to pay a joint-birthday visit to Penbontbren to say hello and sample the delights of their rural retreat, and the reviews already posted here do not exaggerate in their fulsome praise. Penbontbren is, simply, perfect. The suites are... More

'Beautiful property, in peaceful surroundings. Very relaxed atmosphere, made even more comfortable by the friendly welcome and service. The perfect place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hosts/staff were extremely friendly and put everyone at ease, which led to a lovely atmosphere at breakfast.
