Lovely comfortable house with all amenities. Very close to local train station so ideal to travel to Cardiff and places to explore if you don't want to drive. Local pub, nice food. Had a very enjoyable holiday. Would highly recommend this accommodation and we will be staying here again.

Management response:

Thanks, really pleased you enjoyed your stay
