  • "We all enjoyed are stay at Ty Ffarm ,the house was beautiful very clean and spacious we were 8 adults ,it was very well equipped there was nothing we needed that it didn’t have, outside the views from the spacious garden were lovely."

    We felt like we were in the middle of the country side but the nearest town was only ten minutes away, the owners were very nice & friendly and left out muffins and a bottle of wine for our arrival .

  • "This property is very well equipped for a large family/group, it has everything you need for a lovely holiday inside and out."

    Plenty of kitchen equipment, towels even for the hot tub. All rooms spacious especially upstairs family bathroom. Garden large for our energetic little ones, so many out door toys and lots of indoor games to keep them happy. Parking space lots of it and quiet country side not having to worry about disturbing the neighbours apart from the sheep. Great bar-b-q. Many thanks.

    Really pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for such a lovely review Property Owner

    It is set in a beautiful area to explore. The hot tub was a hit, and there was an impressive array of board games and a very well equipped kitchen. The owner was attentive with good communication. The lane leading to the farm house from the main road needs careful driving, especially if arriving at night, but the destination is well worth it

    We stayed her for my mothers birthday and the place couldn’t be more perfect. There were 6 adults and 3 kids and there was more than enough room for everyone. The house itself had everything that we needed and more. The outdoor space was great. The garden is completely enclosed so the kids could have fun with us knowing they weren’t disappearing off.

    It ticked all the boxes when we booked it for a family holiday to celebrate our Daughters 50th birthday this year. The family consisted of 2 Seniors(my husband and I) our Daughter( 50 this year) her 2 grown Daughters and partners and 3 young children. The reason we booked was because looking at the photos we thought it would cater for all the 4 generations. It certainly did this and more. The photos although good did not capture the true ambience of the home. The farmhouse has been very lovingly renovated to a high standard and everything has been considered, even indoor games for grown ups and kids. The rooms are all decorated and soft furnished to perfection. The kitchen diner has everything you could need. The outside terrace has a hot tub, firepit, seating and table for outside dining, the children are also catered for with trampoline and games and even a small table and deck chairs. The location is exactly what we wanted with wonderful views and peace and quiet for a restful stay. There is a Sainsburys a few minutes drive away and access to major roads for days out nearby but once on the terrace we never heard a car, just bliss. We also ordered an Indian take away delivered to the farmhouse which was delicious especially as we ate outside. Would definitely go back and we all would recommend for a getaway from it all holiday.

    Having a hot tub was a bonus for the grandchildren as we have one at home, unfortunately because of where it’s positioned it had a lot of debris in it and was dirty which was off putting, in fairness to Babs and Alan they come out to put cleaning chemicals in it and left them for our use, but without emptying out the tub and cleaning it and the filters it’s impossible to remedy the problem. I think it would be helpful for the hot tub to be maintained by a spa/ swimming pool company. Despite these few niggles we had a fantastic time, the house is finished to a good standard is very well equipped

    Gellilwch was so close to Cardiff, and yet it was so peaceful it was like a different world! It was exactly what we needed. On a note of caution, the drive to get to it is single track and steep in places - but it's worth it when you get there. The house is absolutely lovely. It's a wonderful mix of history and modern facilities. We loved the way each room has been decorated with its own beautiful character, and the adults and teens in our group really appreciated the WiFi. The whole house is really well equipped - the kitchen had everything we needed, there were indoor and outdoor toys for the children, and there were plenty of towels, including hot tub towels and a hand towel for each sink. I was a bit concerned before we went, that we were warned about some areas outside to avoid. But the house and garden are enclosed so it was no problem. If you had very young children you would have to watch them in the parking area, that's all. The owners of the house were lovely, and responded quickly and helpfully whenever we contacted them. Thank you!

As three couples, with four children between us, this house gave us ample space to be able to spend our New-year break together, but allowing us to have our own family space. The kitchen was well equipt and the muffins went down well! Such wonderful touches by the owners, including games, books and dvds for all ages. All contact with the owners has been fantastic and nothing has been too much trouble for them. We all really enjoyed our stay and hope to go back again. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone, even smaller families or groups as the layout of the house means it doesn't feel too big if there are less of you there. Thank you for an amazing holiday!

  • "Recently back from an amazing Christmas weekend at Ty Ffarm."

    I can not recommended this stunning property enough!! Every single room is decorated beautifully & the women especially appreciated the matching decor in every room. As well as this the whole house is immaculate. We were a party of 6 adults & 4 kids & found there was plenty of space for us all & the size of the house is a definite bonus when you have noisy kiddies. The kitchen is so well equipped we even managed to comfortably cook roast dinner for us all!! That roll top bath & amazing shower was a huge added bonus too.   The wonderful & kind owners have thought of EVERYTHING. From the many towels & beautifully fresh bedding, games in every room, torches in the drawers, lanterns for the garden to the little treats left for us on arrival. The open fires kept the house super cosy & the Christmas decorations were a beautiful touch. The hot tub was amazing & the kids loved the trampoline & garden games in which they stayed clean, even in the rain, due to the very much appreciated astro turf. You should absolutely book here, you will not be disappointed :)

  • "We stayed at Ty Ffarm for a long weekend at the end off November to visit Cardiff."

    The location of the property is beautiful; it’s set at the top of a hill, and the resulting views are lovely. The property itself is large, luxurious and spotlessly clean with everything you need for a break. We made good use of the hot tub, and spent a couple of very pleasant evenings playing board games in front of the fire. A fantastic short break: we’ll be looking to book again soon.

  • "We had a large party of 3 couples all with children and nobody was disappointed."

    The house far exceeded our expectations, it was modern, clean, had everything we needed and the space was much bigger than the pictures on the internet show, all in a peaceful location with amazing views. The owners were brilliant with communication and even helped us to find local firework displays for us to visit with the children. We would certainly recommend this property for anyone looking to book a holiday home for a larger group! Amazing value!

    Booking was quick and easy. As for the cottage.... Wow! A perfect piece of paradise. The stunning cottage was huge, designed and finished to the highest spec and had every extra and home comfort you could need and more. The hot tub was a wonderful extra and there was so much for both adults and children to do. The owners added extra treats which were a lovely surprise. I cannot recommend this place high enough. We are already looking forward to booking our next trip. 5*

  • "I can't write enough words to describe how beautiful and well equipped this house was."

    The house itself was lovely with decent sized bedrooms (with very comfy beds), 3 well sized modern bathrooms, lovely living rooms (with gorgeous fires) and a fantastic kitchen. The outside was well equipped and the hot tub was lovely, fake grass for all year entertainment with added lawn games and the view was unreal! The kitchen was very well equipped and we found that the extra tools that we usually bring were not needed at all. Decent sized pans, sharp knifes, plenty of other utensils, frying pans and a wok. Appliances were all new and worked well and there was 2 fridges. On top of all of this, the hosts were fantastic and we didn't even see them!

    Owners communication was fabulous....lovely warm couple! Speedy responses to any queries we had too. Hot tub absolutely perfect, especially after our mountain walks (30ish mins away) and beach days (went to 4 different ones, all 40ish mins away) Rural views were spectacular. Comfy beds and sofas. A brilliant array of books and toys for the one was bored of an evening!! Adults in the tub, wine in hand, kids playing on the trampoline...bliss!! This place is honestly the best we've stayed at through Sykes and we really didn't want to leave!! Highly recommend!

    Owners are fantastic, genuine people who find the balance between help and privacy perfectly. House is immaculate and we'll thought through. Location is great with great views and a real sense of being away from everything. The outdoor space is perfect for families and my loud boys could make as much noise without disturbing anyone. Great find.
