Both Nikki and Oz are great cooks, and if you're lucky, Oz will play his guitar & sing quietly, adding a lovely background sound to the whole experience [he's good!] We highly recommend this place if you're looking for a tranquil, off-the-beaten path establishment.

The farm is the ideal base for a weekend away with friends. Hidden away in the Cothi Valley, the farm is centrally positioned within its own 32 acres of farmland. With no neighbours to disturb, you can party all night or just relax.
Definately the best way to enjoy the local countryside, after all why use 2 legs to climb that hill when 4 is so much easier! This area of Wales is renowned for its unspoilt beauty and our farm has direct access to forestry tracks & hill paths.
