We stayed here for 3 nights in September 2013. It certainly is different, and if you like chain hotel comforts don't stay here. We had a ball. Sue and David were very accommodating (even did some washing for us!), with lovely food and very understanding of the needs of children. We were shown 5 bedrooms in one wing of the house and were given our pick. We had 2 bathrooms to use, including a bath with a view. For Dr Who fans this house was used in a recent episode.
Good points - great experience in this ancient house. Breakfast was lovely and the hosts are very accommodating. Comfy soft beds and great views. Very quiet, but could hear the sounds of the hunt in the morning. Nice pub nearby for dinner and an easy drive to Barry island for some family fun. Breakfast in the hall is communal but enjoyable. Lovely garden to sit and enjoy (and chat to the sheep).
Not so good - bit of a drive our of Cardiff and we did get lost once, but the people we asked for directions seemed to be very used to this. Lots of stairs and low ceilings, as a building of this vintage would have, so watch your head. No wifi, and the thick stone walls makes internet difficult unless you're near a window.
