Reviewed 4 February 2017

This place is a one-off in the nicest possible way. The oldest house in Wales? You can believe it when you've taken in all the history (built in 1402) and character. The welcome is warm in every sense (we arrived on a cold January afternoon), and John and Annie obviously take huge pride in their presentation of the rooms which are full of delightful quirks and witty touches (plenty of animal themes, and rich fabrics, wallpapers and wall hangings) and in the professional care they take in the preparation of the rooms and en suite facilities. Then there's Annie's cooking. We stayed two nights and dined royally on both evenings. The breakfasts too were first rate, offering a comprehensive array of fruits, drinks, cereals and (very well) cooked options which sent us out into the day well satisfied.

Room Tip: Only two rooms, both very characterful. One has more living space and the other better en suite faci...

We stayed one night with Anne and John in their amazing house and will definitely return. The eclectic mix of furniture adds to the great character and history of this amazing house - and its owners. Lovely welcome, great conversation in front of a roaring fire, wonderful breakfast. Highly recommended.

Stayed two nights in the very ideosyncratic B&B that Annie and John have created in Wales' oldest house. They provided magnificent hospitality, good conversation, a fully-equipped comfortable bedroom, an eclectically-furnished lounge, and magnificent breakfasts with cockles. Strongly recommended!

Just back from a memorable stay at this extraordinary house, rich in history and charm with owners offering a warmth and welcome second to none. Dinner was a delight of an incredible five beautifully presented courses prepared by Annie and served with humour and grace (!) by John. Breakfast was equally satisfying with enormous choices. A truly unforgettable time, one I hope to repeat in the future.

Second year for me to stay at this wonderfully quirky place. Annie and John welcomed us into their home and made us feel at home. The house is like stepping back in time but with some modern comforts. Well worth navigating the track up through the fields
