We stayed at the Gelynis Farm B & B for a couple of days in early June while vacationing in Wales, and we absolutely loved the place! We made our reservation a couple of months in advance via telephone, which was easy and painless, and we promptly received a confirmation email with all of the details. We were warmly greeted by the owner when we arrived and she personally showed us to our room, which was clean, comfortable and well-appointed. The bathroom was also clean, modern and well-maintained, and the free Wi-fi worked flawlessly.
Gelynis Farm is in a beautiful rural setting, even though it's only a 15-minute drive from downtown Cardiff. It is actually a working fruit farm with pick-your-own fruit during various seasons and there are horses and sheep on the farm as well. It is situated right along a scenic walking/biking trail along the river Taff (the trail goes all the way into Cardiff) and we enjoyed some nice evening strolls along the river. The farm has a cafe that is open during mid-day, but unfortunately we didn't have a chance to try it since we were out sightseeing during those hours.
Breakfast was included in the reasonable price and was made-to-order. It was delicious, and was made and served by the affable owner, an energetic one-woman show. She was extremely friendly and helpful and offered us tips and suggestions for our daily sightseeing.
Gelynis Farm was one of the highlights of our time in England and Wales!
