“Fabulous cottage with everything you need for your stay in the vale of Glamorgan.”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This lovely cottage is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay in the Vale of Glamorgan, the location chosen for exploring the coast, castles and villages in the area. The owner, Ceri, is very friendly & helpful & made sure we had everything we needed.
Being near to Cardiff for the Dr Who Experience was essential for our teenage daughter, but we also visited Penarth, Cowbridge, Caerphilly Castle, St Fagans Castle & museum as well as Swansea and the Mumbles.
The Red Fox, within walking distance of the cottage, The Quarter Penny Cafe in Cowbridge & the Mughal for indian cuisine close by on the A48 are a few of the lovely eateries we tried.
I would recommend highly recommend Pen Fistla Barns to anyone wishing to stay in the area.

“Delightful, well equipped cottage”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

A lovely "get away from it all " location with friendly on hand owners ready to assist. A holiday with great grandparents and a 7 month old baby, was never going to be easy but it worked! Great accommodation for all ages.

“A warm,relaxed and peaceful retreat.”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This is a beautiful barn conversion that is well-equipped and warm. It is a great location with the countryside on the doorstep, lots of opportunities for walks and it is so quiet and peaceful. It is also within easy reach of Cardiff which has lots to offer all ages (especially if it is wet!). The whole family enjoyed staying here and the children particularly liked the large trampoline in the garden.
