There are plenty of books available offering different genres should you wish to read. The dining area leads to a conservatory, which is a light & tranquil space housing a sofa, 2 armchairs, 2 coffee table, a remote control ceiling fan with lighting. It is south facing - therefore gets the sun all day in summer & leads to the very private patio area and garden.

The guests will have their own separate compartment of the large fridge/freezer, where the food/drinks provided for breakfast are stored.
The property itself is situated in a peaceful rural area, within close proximity to Cwmcarn Forest, Caerphilly Castle, Brecon Beacons National Park, Bike Park Wales and Cardiff- the capital city of Wales...easily and quickly accessed by car.
There is a 10 minute walk to the train station from my house, with an approx 20 min train journey into Cardiff city centre.

Kerin is a very thoughtful and caring host who takes a obvious pride in her home and a genuine interest in the guests that stay within its walls….. Everything from the excellent good quality breakfast choice...the quality linen and toiletries...the clean bright home and room with ensuite facilities and comfy bed, suggest that Kerin has taken time and effort to ensure a warm and pleasant guest experience…. The location is ideal for exploring all that Wales has to offer...their is safe parking in a very quiet  neighbourhood...train and bus facilities are more than adequate... Kerin was always their to offer advice and recommendations on places to visit as well as the best places to eat and drink..nothing like a little local knowledge to help you get the most out of your stay…. I will certainly be revisiting this listing and would like to thank Kerin and family for making my visit to Wales so memorable and satisfying...their warmth and friendship will always be remembered…..

David is an extremely friendly and cheerful person, I felt completely at ease in his company. He was the perfect gentleman and a pleasure to host. David respected my home and left everything in immaculate condition. David was wonderfully entertaining, having lots of interesting travel adventures to share! He is a warm and fun character.... I would certainly recommend David as a guest!

Kerin was a wonderful host and made us feel very welcome. Şhe went out of her way to be helpful including lots of help with what to do when the weather was not suitable for walks in the brecon beacons. Her house was immaculate and the afternoon tea we were offered on arrival was delicious and much appreciated.

Thank you for such a lovely review, also pleased you enjoyed the Welsh cakes! If ever I visit Australia I would love to look you up and see some of Canberra. I thoroughly enjoyed your company during your stay & would welcome you back any time. I would highly recommend you both as being super guests. Hope to see you again in the future. Pam and Bruce were wonderful, friendly, interesting people. They were also extremely easy to cater for. I was genuinely sad to say goodbye when they left! They are the perfect guests!

We stayed with Kerin (her first airbnb experience) over Spring Bank Holiday to visit the local bike park and climb the Brecon Beacons. We honestly could not have wished for a more convenient stay. Kerin was a super friendly and attentive host with lots of tips regarding sightseeing and local dinner places. The house was very tidy and in great condition throughout, the bedroom and ensuite bathroom very clean and a full range of toiletries was provided. Breakfast included a wide variety of cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts, bread and Welsh coffee. With its close proximity to Brecon Beacon national park or Bike Park Wales Kerin's place is the ideal base for an outdoorsy weekend. We would definitiely come back again.

I am thrilled to have such a positive review from Andreas, it is great to know that everything was to my guests satisfaction. I would certainly be more than pleased to have both Andres and Michelle as my guests again. They were extremely friendly, fun to be with, and their relaxed manner contributed to making my first experience as hosting with airbnb very enjoyable.

I am a cheerful, approachable, easy going lady.
I love reading, enjoy music, walking, cooking, and gardening. I have a circle of very good friends, & belong to a rambling group. I enjoy entertaining at home, going to the cinema, the theatre, and to the gym. My favourite film is Noble, and my favourite novel is Philomena,
I enjoy travelling immensely, love meeting new people, experiencing and learning about other cultures, and trying new foods. I really enjoy being surrounded by friends, but I am also comfortable with my own company. Two years ago I travelled alone to Europe, loving the sense of freedom & adventure.
I believe I am able to provide the ideal holiday home, catering for all your needs.

My life motto is "Live and Let Live."
