  • "It was very dusty and webs."

    The hoover stunk really bad. The TV didn't work as some issue with signal of wifi

    We were sorry to hear that you found the property dusty in places. In our visitor’s book guests generally praise the cleanliness of the property. Our inspection following your visit found no concerns. The television was in full working order and we have never had a problem with it before. We are sorry that you experienced difficulties.

  • "Pen Hill is a lovely property."

    It felt really homely and cosy in the lounge. It is very well equipped. It is bit tired in places but that doesnt detract from it being a lovely place to stay. The previous occupants hadnt put their rubbish out as requested so we had to deal with that as well as our own. We had a nice Sunday lunch and an evening meal out at a nice pub in th town. It was a good place to stay. I was worried about parking but we managed to park easily every day in the road opposite.

    Just a few niggles, there was no warning regarding number of steps inside the gate and up to the property, and then into the front door There was nowhere to hang coats especially in wet weather AND the local instructions for recycling are unclear, it would be nice if there was a recycling station in the kitchen area, we were having to leave in on the table until we went out the front, Also Food waste, a kitchen caddy would have been handy and biodegradable bags would have been helpful

    Appreciate comments about coat hooks. Now provided. Afraid the Vale of Glamorgan recycling policy is complicated and we have tried to make it as clear as possible. A kitchen caddy is provided and biodegradable bags are underneath the sink. The few steps into the property have an accompanying handrail. Property Owner

  • "Pen house is in the perfect place to holiday."

    Everything is nearby and the village has everything you need. The house was well stocked and the welcome pack was great. If I had to say anything negative . Parking was a bit of an issue as the road opposite was always full. We did park on the corner where double yellow lines were a few times . If I could change anything it would be the bed. It’s very comfy but small. This is just me as I like a big bed. Thank you for our stay loved it .

    Property was unclean Towels smelt House smelt musky Showers were disgraceful , the sink covers were full of hair and scum

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner has advised the cleaner dropped some items off at the house mid week and checked if everything was okay with your stay, which you confirmed it was. The cleaner works very hard to keep the property in good order and we have had consistently good comments about the cleanliness of the property from previous guests. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our week in Penn Hill."

    The house is spacious and very comfortable, with a pretty walled garden that gets plenty of sun. There was always parking space across the road. The kitchen is light and sunny, really well-equipped and very generously stocked-up. The location is great; it’s a five minute walk to the shops and you can go straight from the front door into the prettiest lanes of the Old Town, many of which lead up onto great cliff walks. A lovely holiday, thank you!

The property

This lovely detached property is situated in the beautiful village of Llantwit Major in the Vale of Glamorgan.

An ideal base for friends and family wishing to explore this interesting part of the country.

From the hallway enter into the open plan light and airy living area where there is a well-equipped kitchen with a table and chairs.

The lounge has wooden flooring and two lovely comfortable leather sofas where you can settle back and relax in front of the gas stove-effect fire.

There is a good sized dining room where you can enjoy sociable meals together.

Upstairs there is a delightful stained glass window on the landing leading to three bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower and there is a family bathroom.

Outside this charming cottage is a large enclosed rear garden and a smaller front lawn, so you are spoilt for choice choosing somewhere to sit and relax whilst planning your next day’s activities.

There is a pebble beach within walking distance through the countryside where there is a café, or if you prefer there are five pubs and coffee shops in the local village and several restaurants, including a very good Italian and an Indian.

The village is also home to two supermarkets, both within a five minute walk, for all your essentials.

If you wish to venture further afield there are sandy beaches, such as Southerndown, Ogmore-by-Sea or Merthyr Mawr near Porthcawl and also the holiday beach resort of Barry Island is also close by.

However, if a spot of retail therapy is for you, you will find many shops in nearby Cowbridge or a bit further away are Cardiff and Swansea and of course, the designer outlet village at Bridgend.

This lovely cottage is an ideal base for exploring all that the area has to offer at any time of the year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Cowbridge 5 miles; Bridgend 9 miles; Cardiff 18 miles;

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. An easy train or car journey will take you to Cardiff or Swansea for shopping, theatres, concerts, sporting events. Visit the famous open air Folk Museum at St Fagans near Cardiff to discover times gone by. A great central location for exciting days out exploring the beautiful coast and countryside of South Wales.
