Find the attractive Edwardian house of The Vines nestled amidst the endearing village of Southerndown, offering a countryside position, which adjoins the Heritage Coastline with Dunraven Bay resting just moments away.
This handsome property rests in one of the most sought-after locations within the Vale of Glamorgan and its interior enjoys a seamless blend of character and contemporary, offering an exceptional self-catering experience for up to 12 people.

Return to the hallway and take the second door to find another sitting room, a space where you can unwind with a good book or younger guests of the group can escape to, to catch up on the latest box set.
Next is the kitchen/diner, a perfectly proportioned room featuring a large dining table, all the quality modern appliances one would expect and a sleek breakfast bar, where you can linger over a wine as dinner simmers on the hob.
From here, slip through the door to discover the utility, a space which works in synergy with the kitchen, housing a microwave, a fridge, laundry equipment and plenty of space to keep the kitchen clutter free for the chef of the group at the end of the first course!
