Pentwyn dates from the early 1600's and has been most sympathetically and well restored to very high standard, making this a warm, comfortable and fascinating place to stay. The house is one of three dwellings approached through a private wood, and up a fairly steep lane through the remote Yscir Fechan valley on the edges of The Mynydd Epynt. There are amazing views from the cottage over the surrounding countryside and it would be tempting on a nice day just to sit in the sunshine watching the red kite, buzzards and other wild life that abound. Guest are welcome to explore the 500 acres of scenic countryside that surrounds the property and the nearby Epynt Way walk, a 40 miles waymarked route (developed by the Army circumnavigating army land for public use)  passes near the house through upland moorland. This is a perfect house for families especially in March and April with the new born lambs frolicing around in the fields - the owners are also happy to show visitors around the farm. Pentwyn Farmhouse is next to Pentwyn Barn and Red Kite Stable Cottage and ideal for group booking for a get together with friends or family.

      Service rating : Great service, straight booking progress. Perfect weekend
      Product : Pentwyn was perfect for our family weekend away. We were three families (sisters) and parents, 8 adults and 8 children (ages 4 to 13 years old) The cottages and their facilities were absolutely perfect. Plenty of room inside and out to play, run around and to relax. The hot tub was a great hit with everyone. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a place to have a family or friends get together.
