A husband and wife team who have been operating for 15 years. When I phoned about a week ago he wasn't sure if his wife would be working as only she did the cooking so he suggested we did it if she wasn't there as he definitely couldn't cook...I thought this unusual if not quite amusing..! When we arrived he...

We are sorry that our accommodation did not live up to your expectations, however, you were advised that the additional beds you requested so that 4 of you could occupy one twin room, instead of paying for 2 rooms, would be on put-you-ups. Your photograph gives a false impression of how the room was presented to you when you arrived....

I really enjoyed my stay at the Old barn B&B. The room was clean and comfortable. TV and wifi worked. Bathroom was clean and water hot. I particularly liked that even though the owner cooked my breakfast - I could also use the kitchen at anytime. This was great because I didn't always fancy eating out by myself in the...

Neat old building that was clean, comfortable and quiet. I had a large room with a nice bathroom. There is parking next door at the pub, which is closed on Sundays so if you want to eat out you will have to drive. The wi fi didn't work in my room but I could get it just outside the door.

We stayed here and travelled into Cardiff for a rugby match, it was very relaxing coming back to the peace and quiet after the chaos of Cardiff city centre! The breakfast was fresh and tasty, our room was spotless and cosy. Penmark is a nice spot, thanks Jill and Peter!

Didn't really know what to expect. But pleasantly surprised. Bedrooms were clean and comfortable, beds a tad soft but I slept really well. The showers hot and fairly powerful (for an electric shower). Overall this room is not 5 star accommodation and spec. But your not paying 5 star prices, it has everything you need or could want from room...

It was a nice short stay in this place. Fabulous breakfast. The owners were very accomodating and welcoming. The bed was so comfortable and the whole room was clean and tidy.I wish we could have stayed longer.

The owners of this converted barn which shares a driveway with their home next door have done a good job with this B&B. The setup is slightly different to the normal B&B arrangement because you are not in a part of the owners property and we felt this was a benefit (I sometimes feel slightly uncomfortable sharing someone's actual home...

Stayed here for a mountain biking break and loved it. Very welcoming reception, and the room was to a v high standard. My pal and I had booked a twin and got a single each which was great and the single room was to a high standard (though the bed was way too soft for my personal taste), shower powerful...

Fantastic stay here! We visit every summer, and we are always greeted with a very warm welcome. Friends of ours also visited a few weeks back on our recommendation and received the same high standards. The breakfast was tasty, and the kitchen and bedrooms were very clean. Can not wait to visit again next summer!

The Old Barn provided a great welcome from Jill and Peter. The breakfast was superb, great bacon and sausage from a local producer. Easily accessible for Cardiff. We hope that we will be able to come back next year.
