One word WOW
Arrived here for 2 nights. Very easy communication. We needed a early check in due to a last minute problem and Rachel accommodated straight away which was excellent and was greeted with a welcome gift (very nice gesture) the pictures on the website do not do it enough justice. Excellent property. Decorated and equipped to a very high standard. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Defnately enough room for a family of 4. Loved the outside area to relax in and our dog was made welcome with the enclosed garden. Great location.

5/5 Excellent

Great property
My daughter and her boyfriend stayed at the property during a visit to Wales with my husband and I. We were all visiting my son and his girlfriend. The property is perfect clean, well equipped very comfortable, great location much bigger than the photos make it look. We visit Wales regularly and would stay definitely stay at the property ourselves next time we visit.

Tranquil accomodation
Spacious well maintained property ! Nice decorations and green surroundings . Drive to Brecon Beacons was easy

5/5 Excellent

Just had a weekend here & I would love to have stayed longer. Although it was a wet, windy weekend it was great. The lodge is very comfy, cosy & well presented. It was very well equipped in the kitchen & the smart TV is a real bonus. The garden & decking area is lovely with the sound of the stream, so relaxing. The location is great being on the Taff Trail, some really good walks (think we broke our dog, he's done nothing but sleep since we got back). We went to Barry Island (I'm a real Gavin & Stacey fan), which is just 30mins away. Just a 20min drive into Cardiff & Cardiff Bay. So the location is great. Thank you so much. ☆☆☆☆☆ 🥰

Best Stay Ever !
My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Old Art Coffee House. A short train ride into the centre of Cardiff and surrounded by beautiful mountains and forests, this cabin was the staycation we all needed. The place itself was beautifully and thoughtfully decorated, with brilliant facilities. Would recommend to anyone wanting to visit the land of song. Aros orau erioed!!
