The hamlet of Dyffryn is a hidden jewel in the lush green countryside of the Vale of Glamorgan, 11 miles from the centre of Cardiff. The Cariad room has beautiful views and en suite bathroom with a "wow factor".
Yr Hen Felin, The Old Mill, was a flour mill that served Dyffryn House, a stunning stately home recently acquired by the National Trust. Two acres of cottage garden provide a space for relaxation and sketching. The garden boasts many seating areas, a secret garden, a bridge over the river, a wishing well, a two hundred year old oak tree with surrounding seat, wild flowers, a colonnade of rose arches, an extensive vegetable patch, hens, ducks and bees and sheep in the paddocks.
Yr Hen Felin is a traditional Welsh longhouse and lies in an East West axis. There are two sheltered patios for serving meals on sunny days. One is South East facing for breakfasts and the other South west facing for midday and evening meals.
Rozanne loves entertaining and cooking and on request can provide meals or barbecues. Meals are £10-15/head. We do not have a drinks licence, but you can bring your own alcohol with a £5 corkage fee.
The rooms have every amenity and all have stunning views. Each room has a flat screen TV, a DVD, wired and wireless internet, an iPad/iPhone port, a hairdryer, a Tassimo coffee machine, a safe large enough for a laptop, an iron and dressing gowns.
guests have access to the three downstairs reception rooms. These include a vaulted room with a central fireplace opening to a dining area on one side and a sitting area on the other and french doors onto the garden. This room is beautiful all year round, but very cosy on a winter's day, and even more magical at Christmas with a 12 ft Christmas tree, traditional Christmas decorations, many of which are homemade. The second reception room, the heart of the house, is a traditional open plan kitchen, dining area and sitting room with a log burning fire and french doors onto the south west facing patio. The third reception room is a modern space with a definite "wow" factor- a floating oak staircase, floating glass canopies, bifold doors and a log burning fire. Upstairs there is a cinema room with an overhead projector.
We also host cider making days, corporate days, functions and weddings.
