Ysgubor Y Glan

Gileston, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales

about the property

Affordable yet stylish small Welsh holiday cottage home in the Vale of Glamorgan near Cardiff, yet walkable to the beach. Near to Gileston and perfect just for two!

Ysgubor y Glan (which is co-located with Bwthyn Rhosyn  but can be booked separately or together with the main house) is designed with relaxation in mind. You will find it nestled within a pretty hamlet on the Vale of Glamorgan coast. Set within the grounds of a historic 17th century thatched cottage you are also only a stone's throw from the beach. The barn has recently converted to a very high standard, this self catering open space offers ample room for a couple to share thanks to a mezzanine sleeping area and double sofa bed below. Think exposed stonework and limewashed walls. Freeview television, free wifi, underfloor heating, dining/livingarea and luxury 'pebble' shower room offer comfort with practicality. If you want to be close to the action but prefer to be sleeping away from it all then the Hay Loft could be the place for you. Thirteen miles from Cardiff and five miles from Cowbridge, yet located only 300meters from the sea. Escape the rat race for a while and relax. See Face Book album here
