The B&B is located far off the main roads in the middle of nowhere, which makes for a great location. The room may have been a bit small but was nice as it was. The cooked breakfast matched expectations. If you don't want to depend on the signage, find the house on Google Maps and feed those coordinates to your... More

We particularly enjoyed the tranquillity of this B&B, positioned as it is in lovely rolling countryside. It was also good for accessing the lovely town of Cowbridge, and exploring the coast. The place was very comfortable, very clean and both June and Glyn were very helpful. Lovely breakfast with healthy options! Thank you!

Really nice B&B. We stayed here for a couple of nights and the bed was really comfortable, the cleanliness of room was excellent, and breakfast was good as well. Lovely homey atmosphere to the place and wonderful surrounding area.

We were visiting friends and this B&B was just perfect for our purpose. We could come and go at our own convenience and June provided helpful advice on which roads to use and where to park in Cowbridge, which we loved!. All in all, a home from home!

We enjoyed a wonderful three night stay at Bryn-y-Ddafad. A good night's sleep and a terrific breakfast. Our hosts were friendly but not too intrusive and we were just twenty minutes from Cardiff. We are sure to be revisiting soon. Thank you for a lovely comfortable stay.
