I booked this as I needed a B&B for a quick overnight stay and the price was very reasonable. Imagine my surprise when I turned up to find it was an absolute hidden gem. Immaculately clean, top notch facilities and outstanding breakfast and very friendly service. I cannot recommend this highly enough - outstanding value for money and wonderful hospitality!...

We had a pleasant stay at this venue. A warm greeting and a pleasant room with the most comfortable bed I've slept in for ages. I would have given this accommodation 5 stars but for these three things: 1. I had to ask for more loo roll the morning after the first night! 2. The room was only 'half' cleaned...

Hello Thank you for the nice review. Sorry your room was only half cleaned. This is not something that usually happens The only times this happens is if Guests remain in their rooms and do not leave until after the staff have finished at noon. The other reason would be if the guest has left lots of personal belongs on...

Booked in to Ballas farm for a girly weekend away to celebrate my 30th Birthday. Cannot recommend Ballas farm enough and it was very reasonably priced. The welcome we had was lovely, the room was perfect (very clean and with a lovely en-suite bathroom), breakfast was delish and I was very grateful that you accommodated my fussy requests :) All-in-all...

We always stay here when we visit this area. The family are lovely and extremely welcoming. Breakfast is first class, and facilities are excellent. Surroundings and gardens are idyllic and worth a look. Bedrooms are roomy and spotlessly clean and comfortable.

I visited the farm for one night as it was ideally located for my Swansea business trip. The room was comfortable and well presented with everything you could need. The highlight though was the breakfast, served by friendly and knowledgeable hosts. I was definitely recommend staying and will certainly book again next time I'm in the area.
