The property

The Stables is a character reverse-level cottage resting in the rural spot of St Athan.

With exposed beams and bricks, The Stables is an attractive and homely spot for a family trip to this part of Wales, within easy reach of the popular seaside resort of Barry.

You are greeted to the property with off-road parking and a private front patio with furniture so you can enjoy you morning coffee in the fresh air.

Stepping in the property, the ground-floor boasts an immaculate double bedroom with storage for guests to unpack, and a single bedroom with an ocean blue theme and a pull-out bed which is great for children.

The ground-floor also boasts a cupboard with the washing machine, and a stylish, white-tiled wet room so guests can get ready in style.

Climbing up the red-carpeted staircase, there is a spacious sitting room with high ceilings, exposed beams and plenty of seating to enjoy an evening of good television.

Whilst in the kitchen/diner, you can whip up an evening meal to enjoy round the dining table, as you toast to a wonderful holiday.

The stunning cottage is completed with a cloakroom for guests on the first-floor.

Take a short drive or walk down the country lane and into St Athan where there is a Post Office and two convenience stores so you can grab any essentials, or if you fancy a night out, there are two ideal pubs, The Roost and The Three Horseshoes, both of which serve yummy meals and local ales.

Nearby, you can enjoy a stroll along the pebbled beach at Llantwit Major, or walk along the surrounding cliffs to enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean.

Don't forget to enjoy a day in the town of Barry where you can find the interesting ruins of Barry Castle, as well as a sandy beach and a bustling dock yard with a lighthouse and views of Bendricks Rock.

Also in Barry you can take a thrill seeking adventure to Barry Island Pleasure Park, enjoy a range of eateries, take a ride on the Barry Tourist Railway, or visit the Stacey's home from the popular sit-com of Gavin and Stacey.
