    The owner greeted us on arrival and was “on the spot” at all time’s. Any questions or requests we had were immediately dealt with with no fuss or bother. The property was exactly as advertised and we would stay again.

  • "The cottage was situated in a lovely quite place, looking out the back of the property was green fields and waking up watching the Cows munching on the grass."

    The entrance was gated, nice feeling of privacy, owners live on site were charming and helpful, everything you need in the Cottage home from home very comfortable. Loved the horse's, chickens and ducks walking around the long driveway. Llantwit Major is a very interesting village with a walk looking for the blue placks on the buildings, beach nearby with a wonderful cliff walk, with lovely sunsets. Plenty of places to visit for short drive's.

  • "We are a family of 4 with two small children (4&2) and came to enjoy South Wales with some friends."

    We had a wonderful time on holiday here. The cottage is lovely and had everything we needed, it is conveniently located with the nearby town of Llantwit Major offering practical amenities and plenty of woods, beaches and castles in the area to explore. The family that operate the cottage are on site and are all lovely and helpful, great with the kids and gave us some great recommendations of places to visit all thew while ensuring our stay was going well (even offering one of the paddocks for me to set up my telescope, unfortunate I never had a clear enough sky for it). Some things we did if you are after ideas, in no particular order: Ogmore Beach, Ogmore Castlem Porthcawl beach and arcades, Forrest Fawr, Southerndown Beach and Dunraven bay/castle. Some of the other stuff we wanted to do was closed due to Covid but there was more than enough to exhaust the kids on a daily basis. We look forward to returning to enjoy more of this wonderful slice of the country and we'd certainly stay here again when we do return. Thank you for a great stay!

The property

Situated on the outskirts of Llantwit Major, in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, is this delightful single-storey barn conversion situated next to the owner's home.

This heart-warming retreat is the perfect spot for friends or families seeking a traditional getaway to this coastal area.

Inside, the property has undergone considerable renovation creating a stunning holiday home, whilst still retaining some of its original features such as the exposed beams.

Be welcomed into the lovely fitted kitchen, wonderfully appointed towards the front of the cottage and benefitting from a welcome pack prepared by the owner, with welsh cakes, tea, sugar and milk.

Walk through to the open-plan living room and dining area, home to a delightful woodburning stove to keep you warm and toasty.

Choose from a sofa or two armchairs to curl up and enjoy some quality family time together, with the dining area to gather over a home-cooked meal.

Discover three well-presented bedrooms, comprising of two doubles and a twin, ideal for all types of groups.

The larger of the double bedrooms offers a lovely dressing table and large mirror framed by two wardrobes on either side, the ideal spot for getting ready in style.

There is a family bathroom fitted with an elegant white bath and shower over, so you can enjoy a long soak in the tub at the end of a tiring day.

Prepare a cup of tea and a welsh cake to enjoy on the front patio area whilst watching the sunrise of a morning.

While you're in the area, take a short drive towards the town centre of Llantwit Major, home to a range of pubs and restaurants if you don't fancy cooking one evening.

Visit the Grade II* listed building Dovecote in the town centre which has more than 700 years' worth of history inside.

Or choose to view the historical landmarks of The Great House, The Old Place and Plymouth House.

The nearby village of St Athan is home to a golf club for those looking to learn a new skill or simply to enjoy a friendly game.

Llantwit Major Beach is also within reach; take a homemade picnic and enjoy an afternoon on the golden sands with your loved ones.

Due to your close proximity to the coast, you can enjoy some wonderful coastal walks and cycling opportunities.

Ash Cottage is an excellent cottage for those family breaks to the coast of Wales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

Ancient buildings sit on every corner in Llantwit Major, one of the Vale of Glamorgan’s most beautiful villages, with the first church recorded in the settlement more than 1,500 years ago and lush countryside, caves and sandy beaches providing glorious surroundings.
