“Can't say much more than superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

Hard to top what previous reviewer has said. Such a personal little place. When we were shown into the living room we thought that was where we had to wait. But it was our own living room with soft music playing in background. Ivan pointed out where everything was and said he'd be back later with bread etc for breakfast. Based on what was already in the room e.g. cereals, jams, fridge contents we thought there was no need for more but sure enough along came 2 loaves of bread, croissants and pecan pastries.
We were staying there because we were attending a wedding party relatively locally. When we arrived the sun was still shining so we were able to sit out in the adequately equiped garden. We we just sorry that we hadn't arrived earlier to make the most of the facilities and likewise been able to stay longer the following day. We would have been more than happy to stay in the room all evening as the ambience was lovely.
My husband and I have stayed in many places in the UK and abroad over the past 30 years or so and never once has he felt inclined to write anything in the Guestbook....until now. It wasn't much but it was genuine appreciation. Our only problem now is finding another excuse to stay there as it is only about 45 mins from home. I will most definitely be recommending it to anyone coming to the area for a quick get away.
Thank you Ivan for the wonderful hospitality and what can best be described as a BREAKFEAST!

We stayed here for one night, as part of a quick weekend away looking at fossils. We'd read reviews on another site (yes, there is a world beyond TA...) and thought Newcourt looked impossibly good. So, having booked up , we braced ourselves to be at best slightly disappointed with reality.

No fear. It's perfect. It's a B and B with only one letting room. And a living room. And a bathroom. And a food supply that puts a Tesco Metro to shame.

It's essentially a little 'granny' flat that's part of someone's home and it's a marvellously appointed set of rooms. The bedroom has a double and single bed. Bit of tight fit, but very comfortable. The bathroom has every conceivable bath product available, so is handy when someone forgets the toothpaste. The living room has the usual TV, leather sofas and an extensive collection of DVDs, should the attractions of Llantwit Major pale (fossils are not for all)

But it's the eating facilities that really mark this out. It's billed as a continental breakfast, so some churlish people might pooh pooh this and grumble about the lack of a cooked English. Ignoring the fact that you're in Wales, then what they provide is enough to feed an invading army. We had bread, Welsh cakes, strawberries, beer, pastries, ham, cheese, cereal, fruit juice, 3 types of coffee, tea, jams, marmalade and some muffins. They had a fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster.

So, just who needs sausages?

The welcome was warm and helpful, and they have wifi too. We'd happily go back for longer, if only to do the breakfast products justice. it really is a little gem to find in the most unusual of places.
