“Excellent base for mountain biking”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

The B&B at Pentre Tai Farm came as a very pleasant surprise. We'd been looking for somewhere to use as the base for a mountain biking weekend and we were referred to Pentre Tai by another B&B. We only really needed somewhere low-cost and convenient - which indeed it was - but we also found spacious, comfortable rooms, a pleasant sitting room and a warm welcome.

The location is ideal for the mountain biking. It's literally 10 minutes' drive from Cwmcarn and about half an hour from Bike Park Wales. Lockable bike storage is also available on-site.

Returning from the trails we were glad to discover a good pub nearby. The Rhiwderin Inn is within walking distance and offers affordable, unpretentious food cooked to a good standard. The portions are particularly generous and the beer is good.

Special mention goes to Pentre Tai's owners, George and Sue, who bring plenty of character to the place. The B&B is part of a working farm and it doesn't feel quite as twee as some of the more outwardly touristy establishments - you won't find any oak beams or frilly four-poster beds - but it's an excellent base from which to explore South Wales and very good value for money.

We stayed and the campsite in a tent to see Bruce Springston at the Millenium Stadium. The site is situated in the countryside just 16 miles from the Stadium, ideal. The site is quiet and the owners very friendly. Nice flat grass pitch, a shower and toilet. Good pubs for food in the village, we ate at the Friendly Fox.

Would recommend to anyone. Will certainly go back and spend longer exploring the area from this well located position.

Springs protruding through the mattress,no sheets on spare single bed, drunken guests in adjacent room trying to get into our room,dirty kitchen, misrepresented on website with farmstay logo. How do they get away with it?
Worst stay in a month holidaying in the UK. Just does not compare with the rest. Hosts tired and disinterested.

My teenage son and I stayed here when visiting his prospective uni in Cardiff, and it really is the nicest B&B I've ever stayed in. Our twin room was spotlessly clean, light and well-furnished, with a huge, airy bathroom and views over the farm. Downstairs is a very large sitting room and conservatory for guests, where breakfasts are served and where my son was delighted to find a baby grand piano (he's a music student). The owners are lovely and made us feel most welcome, and we left our car in the car park (free) at the local station and took a 20min train ride into Cardiff for the day. The area is beautiful with lots to do and see, and a nearby pub serves enormous portions of good food at a very reasonable price. We would love to have stayed longer, and will definitely visit again as soon as we can. Thoroughly recommended.

Pentre Tai Farm is a great place to enjoy the Welsh countryside, but still close enough to pop into the city (Cardiff or Newport), if you wish. The owners, George and Sue, are friendly and cook a great breakfast with free conversation and insight into the local attrauctions/activities. Our family enjoyed the stay, especially as the farm is still a working farm with a number of sheep and horses about. Even the farm cat was welcoming to our girls. For anyone who wants a quiet place to sleep, with room to walk and explore, while still convenient to a number of attractions, this is the place to stay.

The water in the tap is hot and is supposedly on the same pipe as the shower but the shower is Cold ! There is something not right ! I defy anyone to take a shower in the Foxwood room . Food is good and owners friendly but need to get home and have a hot shower !

A lovely B&B, tucked away in a beauiful setting. The owners were really pleasant and were at hand for insight for good places to eat and drink. The breakfast was perfect and couldn't be faulted. I would most definitely come back here for a holiday, making use if the campsite facilities and renowned cycle tracks which unfortunately I couldn't do this time round.
