There is a wonderful view from the bedroom out over the rural landscape.
The kitchen is fully functional and has all you need to self cater. Basics will be in the fridge ,milk ,juice,tea, coffee. Full breakfast is available on request at an extra cost, as is an evening meal.
The lounge is a cozy corner with comfortable sofa to sit and reflect your busy welsh adventure or simply to chill read a book or just watch the morning unfold through the huge picture window,which looks out onto a water feature and private decking area and courtyard.
There is also a 3 seater futon that converts into a double bed downstairs.The whole area is made secluded by a bespoke blackout blind over the window.

Guest Access

Here in the vale of Glamorgan, we have the best of all worlds. We are a few minutes drive from the stunning Jurassic coast line of Southern Down or Ogmore.Where rugged Castles cling to cliff tops and woodland walks open onto stretches of sandy beaches.

The Welsh coastal walk passes thru here. over sand dunes and rolling welsh pasture, dotted with cozy country pubs. Serving excellent Food beside cracking open fires,to warm the hearts of walkers, riders,and families. St Fagans is well worth a visit,a welsh folk museum which is actually a step back in time to a working welsh village. Black smiths working mill and several houses you can walk round to get a taste of our past. And pick up some warm Welsh cakes! Oh and it's FREE!

We have excellent access to further adventures ,to The Brecon Beacons or to the Gower peninsular ,Dylan Thomas boat house , Oakwood theme park and Tenby historical fishing town.

A few miles up the road is the Pines Outlet (website hidden) you can buy designer items from the likes of Calvin Klein, Ted Baker, Karen Millen and Ralph Lauren At massive discounts.
There really isn't any need to go to Cardiff, but if the Capitol is your destination then we are 15 miles up the A48 or 24 miles up the M4. I can make it to the Center in 25 minutes but the train is quicker and easier.

Bridgend is one stop on the fast train from Cardiff. Takes 25 minutes and delivers you in to the heart of the city.
