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.

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. Nearby Cowbridge, with its designer shops, provides the chance for some retail therapy, or why not take the short trip to Bridgend, with its town centre shopping and popular outlet village? The dramatically beautiful Glamorgan Heritage Coastline and the Wales Coast Path beckon, with the seaside resorts of Barry Island and Porthcawl boasting sandy beaches, a surf school, great fishing and a popular park. Ogmore-by-Sea on the other hand offers a vast stretch of unspoilt beach and a riding school from where you can take treks along the sand.
