About Chris and Rob Hughes

We are a local couple that are fortunate to live next door to our holiday cottage and so are fully aware of the perfect location of the property. It has only since we bought the house that we have realised just what is available to visitors to the local area and why so many people book with us. When you grow up in an area sometimes you do not see what is right in front of you!

We put a lot of energy and effort into ensuring that our guests enjoy the experience of staying at our property from initial contact right through to the end of their stay. We are on hand to assist but not interfere and queries are answered as quickly as possible.

Our philosophy is straightforward - create a place that we would love to stay ourselves. And we believe we have succeeded as our reviews will confirm!

Chris and Rob Hughes purchased this house in 2012

Excellent large family home

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely large family home ideal for extended families to share and have fun together. Set in beautiful countryside with a fabulous pub next door which serves excellent food, loves dogs and children too. Really lovely landlady. Only 15 min drive into Cardiff to see family too. We visited Cefn Mabley Farm which is fab for kids and Castell Coch too. Had a trip down memory lane around Roath Park and visited lots of family. For us a perfect home and location we will be back. The sky tv was a bonus too. The owners live next door and we’re extremely helpful x

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for my Hen Do for 2 nights. Lovely cottage in a good location. Not too far to Cardiff and other attractions but in a nice and quiet village. Plenty of space for everyone and the property was clean and tidy. Definitely recommend!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

An amazing place to stay. So much space. Perfect for our family of 7 to stay for a wedding in Cardiff. Beautiful views and so peaceful. Christine and Rob were so helpful and laid back. Thank you for the provisions too. The pub next door is a great place to eat. The house is so well equipped. The best I've ever stayed in. We wished we could have stayed longer. If you are looking for a place to stay with a large group in the Cardiff area I would recommend Derwrn Cottage.

A wonderful large family home from home!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived Chris showed us around the house and told us all we needed to know. We found the house perfect for our family get together weekend. We were a family of 6 adults and 4 children aged 18 months to 4 years old. There was more than enough space for us all and we loved the open plan feel of the house. The kitchen had everything we needed for a BBQ Saturday and a huge roast on Sunday. We all enjoyed the garden and patio area and due to the weather being good it was gr at time outside and for the kids to be playing hide and seek. This home from home is at a great price and has everything you need for a family holiday. We will definitely be back! Thanks you Chris and Rob.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant time staying in this cottage. The cottage is spacious, clean and in a fantastic countryside location but also close enough to Cardiff centre.

Rob and Chris were very helpful with responding to queries quickly. On arrival there was even some essentials in the fridge which was greatly appreciated.

Overall our stay was great - thank you to Rob and Chris!!
