80th and 50th Birthday Celebration

The Old Farm house is a very comfortable venue and we found it ideal to celebrate an 80th and 50th birthday on the same day. A great touch on arrival was the bubbly in the fridge and the cakes on the kitchen table. The Hot tub was enjoyed even in November. All 10 of us enjoyed the break away with varying times being able to be spent by all. Pontypridd is a short drive away and there are many places close by to visit for all age groups. The house gives a warm feeling of a place to visit again and again.

Daughters 50th year family holiday

We have just returned from a family week away at this amazing property. It was everything we wanted and more. The beautiful farmhouse located in peaceful surroundings with stunning views has the WOW factor. It has been lovingly renavated by the owners and everything has been considered for a comfortable stay. The decor of all the rooms is tasteful and relaxing and to a high standard. Just everything we needed was there. We arrived to find cakes and bubbly waiting for us, such a thoughtful touch. We had 3 young children with us and so many games and outdoor activities are there waiting for them to enjoy. From the moment we opened the door we felt at home and knew that we would have a fabulous time. Sitting outside in the evenings we had a fire pit on and the hottub was warm and welcoming and if there was a nip in the air then blankets were available. We even had a takeaway delivered to make a night out on the terrace perfect. Just a beautiful and friendly place to stay, we would all love to go back. Highly recommend a stay here, a good location for travelling around and certainty of comfort.

Mums 50th

My daughter booked this property as a surprise for my 50th birthday this weekend. What a fantastic property! Set in a peaceful hillside location with amazing views. 9 of us stayed at this property and it more than accommodated us. The property itself has been loving and beautifully renovated. It is equipped with everything you need and is truly a home from home. The dinning kitchen has everything from bin bags to tea towels. A cold storeroom with fridge freezer washer/dryer iron and ironing board. 3 bathrooms inside and a lovely outside toilet room. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage and even have colour co ordinating towels. The outside area has a hot tub, (towels provided) bbq patio with dinning table and a lawn (artificial grass) with a trampoline and plenty of room for children to play.Outdoor and indoor games to keep them entertained along with dvds and books. The owners are wonderful and very helpful and also left us cupcakes, muffins and bubbly. It’s a good base to visit many sights around South Wales, castles, caves,walking, trail running and even treetop mini golf! We can not recommend this property enough and most certainly will be returning. In fact we have already booked again.

Hidden Gem in the Welsh countryside

Just came back from a lovely weekend away in Ty Ffarm at Gelliwch. The property was simply stunning, The rooms were decorated beautifully. It was obvious that the owners had put a great deal of thought into ensuring that you had everything you needed for your stay and the property was very well equipped. There was plenty to do in terms of board games and toys to amuse the kids inside and out, places nearby to visit and plenty of room where the kids could play and watch films in one room and the adults could relax by the wood burner with a glass of wine in another room. The views of the welsh countryside from the garden was amazing and the hot tub was an added bonus that we thoroughly enjoyed. I would definetly be recommending this hidden gem to friends and family.

Every room has been decorated beautifully, the roll top bath is amazing and the wood burners are perfect for those chilly nights. The owner has thought of everything including toys and books for the kids. The hot tub was a big hit with both adults and kids! Would highly recommend visiting.
