  • "Good enclosed garden for the dog."

    Had everything we needed. The only thing that let it down were the two single beds. These just need to be replaced with new mattresses.

  • "Well appointed and comfortable ground floor apartment with a friendly owner, we only saw at the beginning and end of our stay."

    Appreciated the farm eggs and welcome provisions on arrival, the eggs had the yellowish yolks ever! Great facilities, fabulous shower and fantastic rural views. Yes the road to the property could be a challenge for some low slung vehicles, but that's what made it more appealing to my husband. Take it slow and enjoy the experience! Would definitely stay again.

    We were very lucky with the weather and spent most evenings on the decking enjoying the views. Have booked to come back in December. Thank you For a lovely holiday.

  • "Michael was a friendly host, who welcomed us when we arrived, but then let us enjoy our holiday peacefully."

    He lives onsite so we could easily speak to him when we needed to. There is a large enclosed garden, which is perfect for dogs and children. The property had everything we needed for a lovely stay, and once we worked out the best routes (avoiding the narrow one track country roads) local amenities and the M4 were easy to access.

  • "Cwm Gran Meadows is the perfect setting for a relaxing break away from everything and the chance to recharge your batteries!"

    The setting is idyllic and so peaceful. We had a lovely time and our puppy thoroughly enjoyed the enclosed garden which he could explore and relax in. He made friends with the owners dog Rocky and enjoyed watching Rocky and the chickens!

  • "This was a beautiful place to stay."

    We had a very relaxing holiday, it was so nice to wake up to the sounds of the countryside. Accommodation was spotless and there was everything you needed supplied. The owners were friendly and chatty but did not intrude. They had a loverly dog rocky who was so friendly. The garden is a great space to relax for us and our dog and the decked balcony gave you fantastic views. Thanks for the supplies including the fresh eggs from your chickens. We didn't want to leave.

    Bit pricey but the isolation was just what we needed. Only downside was the rough road that led to the cottage road, otherwise fantastic experience

    Beautiful location, away from shops and town though off the beaten track. Very bumpy long dirt track to get to property, but once there beautiful.

  • "A fabulous cottage, in an idyllic setting."

    Very quiet and relaxing with all the amenities you need. There is a long driveway heading in to the cottage area which could be smoother but the overall atmospherical effect of the journey adds to the experience. The owner is very friendly and helpful, the local pub was extremely welcoming and the local countryside provides plenty of entertainment.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cwm Gran Meadows, although we would have liked better weather to fully appreciate the attractiveness of the views from the decked area outside!"

    As others have said, the one drawback is the rough track leading to the accommodation but the comfort of the "cottage" makes up for this. The owner is there if you need him but otherwise leaves you to yourselves. There was a welcome gift of milk, eggs and bread awaiting our arrival: very useful. Although situated in the heart of the countryside, Cwm Gran is well placed for visiting the area and very close to the M4 if you want to go further afield. We found almost everything we needed so far as kitchen equipment was concerned; a teapot would have been nice, but I suppose most people put teabags straight in their mug these days! There were several pyrex dishes for the microwave though none had lids, so cling film would be needed if you intend to cook that way. These are very minor niggles!!

  • "We loved the peaceful location and the lovely modern facilities."

    There were some kitchen utensils which would have helped in our cooking, like a bigger cheese grater, a bigger caffitierre, and a tea pot. But all in all, it was very good. A relaxing place for a holiday. We wished we could have enjoyed the garden more had the weather been kinder. The decking area was fantastic. Thank you to Mr Lee who was flexible with our arrival time allowing us to access the property earlier. The one drawback were the instructions on how to get there. The turning off from the Llanharry road is tricky and needs a map.

  • "This Self catering holiday cottage is set in the middle of meadows with stunning views all around, if you’re looking for peace and quiet you will find it here."

    Set way back from the road it’s blissfully peaceful, however if you yearn for some retail therapy there is a retail shopping centre 15 minutes drive away, Cardiff is approximately 30 minutes drive away with good rail links close by. Local beaches approximately 40 minutes drive. Beautiful horses and wildlife for nature lovers. The cottage is impeccably decorated and has its own large garden with an outdoor decking area for outside dining. Fully contained with everything you could possibly need. local pub/restaurant Fox & Hounds 5 minutes drive away pet friendly with a large enclosed garden, if tranquility is what you need look no further.

  • "My partner and I and our 3 dogs finally got around to having our 1st holiday together and it was my birthday on the 27th too, so it made it more special and we absolutely loved every minute of our holiday."

    When we got there Mike the owner had left us bread, milk and packet biscuits which was a really nice touch. Mike was around if we needed him but he left us to enjoy our holiday in which we did and we can't thank Mike enough for everything. The property is ideally set surrounded by fields, lovely scenery. It was lovely to wake up every morning and see some of the wild horses over the fence which the dog's loved barking at, and they loved barking at Mike's lovely dog Rocky too lol. It was perfect for the dog's because the garden is really big and enclosed so we were happy to know that they were safe playing outside. We really couldn't fault anything and we will definitely be going back again. Thank you again for everything Mike and Rocky

    Can I suggest that the post code of the house near the top of the drive(on the main road) is given, then you would only need to give very short instructions to the property. The post code given takes you up very narrow roads and doesn’t take you to the property. Thank you

The property

Llanharry 1.5 miles.

This delightful single-storey annexe is attached to the owners home, in an isolated position, close to the village of Llanharry and within reach of both Bridgend and Cardiff.

Access to this lovely cottage is via a long track and once you arrive you will find a holiday home that exudes comfort and style.

You enter this cottage via a raised decked patio with ramp access directly into the superb open plan living area.

Here, you can relax whilst watching the TV after a busy day out and about, perhaps with the electric woodburner-effect stove on to provide additional warmth and whilst cooking a hearty meal in the well-equipped kitchen.

The bedrooms consist of a comfortable king-size double bedroom and a twin, which has views of a paddock area, and completing the cottage is a modern shower room.

Why not open the patio doors and enjoy a drink or meal on the patio on a sunny day, whilst the dogs run round the enclosed lawned garden?

Llanharry, just 1.5 miles away has two pubs and a church, whilst the town of Bridgend has a shopping village, and Cardiff is well worth visiting and has something for everyone.

In addition to visiting the nearby towns and cities, you can also enjoy the beaches at Porthcawl and Llantwit Major.

A superb base for exploring this part of South Wales.

About the location


Bridgend 9 miles; Cardiff 15 miles.

The village of Llanharry is situated close to the M4 motorway, between the town of Bridgend and the capital city of Cardiff. Llanharry has a church called St. Illtud, which was re-built in 1867-8, and two pubs, The Bear Inn, which was a school in the 19th century and The Fox and Hounds, known to date back to the Tudor times. Very close by are the historic villages of Llantrisant and Talbot Green. Set on a hilltop, Llantrisant offers visitors wonderful cobbled streets to wander and some fascinating buildings and Talbot Green has a variety of shops and restaurants. Just five miles away is the traditional village of Heol-y-Cyw, offering a church, rugby ground, pub and shop, and slightly further north is the town of Tonyrefail, which has selection of shops, pubs and churches. The small town of Bridgend is close by with its wonderful designer outlet village, so shopping sprees are a definite item to add to your days out, and within reach is Cardiff where shopping, theatre visits, rugby and football matches can be enjoyed.
