Pen Fistla Barns, in the village of Penllyn, near Cowbridge, were converted first in 2005, transforming a once working farm yard into a beautiful family home. In 2008 a single story stable- type barn was also converted as part of the overall accommodation, providing a range of expertly restored rooms, with natural stone walls, oak flooring and exposed beams throughout. ...Pen Fistla Barns, in the village of Penllyn, near Cowbridge, were converted first in 2005, transforming a once working farm yard into a beautiful family home.
