I will be there to welcome you - usually with tea and home made cake - when you arrive.

I have various hobbies which keep me busy, so you will have as much privacy as you like.

If you want company, I can provide that too!

I am quiet and considerate and expect you to be quiet and considerate too. I provide comfortable accommodation with high quality bedlinen and towels. You are welcome to make as many cups of tea or coffee as you like, but please wash the cups and spoons when you've finished with them.

I am a good cook and will also cook an evening meal for you if you like, at an additional cost of £15 per person or £20 including wine. I follow a LCHF way of eating, and also regularly cook vegan food, and gluten free meals, so am happy to cater for a range of dietary needs.

I would expect you to clean up after yourself if you use the kitchen, and either wash any dishes, cutlery and pans you use, or stack them in the dishwasher.

I do not have any pets. I will accept reservations from smokers who are happy to smoke outdoors, but there is no smoking indoors, I have smoke alarms in all rooms.

I would appreciate it if you didn't take food or drinks into the bedroom.

Thank you for your kind words. Remind me about the bara brith next time, I think your arrival times have meant that I haven't given you any - must remedy that!

Lovely home, nice and clean and in a beautiful part of the world. Adrienne took our booking last minute and it was by sheer luck she had just had a cancellation and was able to accommodate us. Definitely recommend!!

Exactly what I needed! I'm working in the local hospital and I needed a place close by. Comfy bed, spotless bathroom, well equipped kitchen. Train station is a five minute walk downhill (maybe 10 if going from the station to the house :) ) Tesco and Lidle are a 30 minutes walk away. A very peaceful place to stay. I'm happy to be returning as I'll need to work in Ystrad Mynach until the end of May.
