Gileston, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales
Adorable thatched Welsh holiday cottage near Cardiff in the Vale of Glamorgan, and undoubtedly the finest and most luxurious holiday cottage in the area. Stylish interior filmed and photographed many times!
Bwthyn Rhosyn is a chocolate box thatched cottage if ever there was one. Dating from the early 17th century with a Grade II listing.
The cottage a perfectly formed, dinky, yet quirky but with enough room for six to share in delightful 'boutique style' comfort.
Perfectly placed for a combination of a beach getaway (10 minutes walk) and a city break - Cardiff, with its theatres (including the fabulous Wales Millenium Centre) cinemas and great shopping - all only a short train journey away. Cowbridge, with it's antique shops to browse and top restaurants to wine and dine, is only 5 minutes away by car.
Staying at 'home' is a delight too, the garden is a lovely to sit in and while away the time, dine alfresco, read a book.
* The property can be booked along with our other listing on here (subject to availability) TBA (to be launched soon) - should you be larger group i.e theadjacent Loft caters for another 2 (and potentially 2 small children if they are happy to share a sofa bed) - allowing 8 + 2 to share in comfort across both houses should both properties be booked together.

A lovely little break in the Vale of Glamorgan. The cottage is very cute and well equipped and comfortable. Well located for both coastal walks (especially Southerdown and Ogmore) but also not far from Cardiff for trips to the Bay or city centre. Would recommend
A beautiful cottage in a great location.It was easy to communicate with the owners.We would love to go back.
Fabulous cottage we all had a lovely time, the beaches are great for kids
This cottage is lovely, it has a genuine historic feel alongside all modern comforts. A very peaceful location yet handy for Cardiff particularly if you take the train. The owner was very pleasant and efficient to deal with, would definitely stay here again.
The cottage is a jewel in a lovely little village; nicely decorated and with all the modern amenities, e.g. internet, dishwasher, washing machine etc. We traveled with two small children and they loved the garden and the chicken and were excited to run over to see if there was a fresh egg. Booking went smoothly and fast and Rhodri came over to greet us and show us the cottage. The location is good as there are many attractions in the area, from the sandy beach in Barry to the museums in Cardiff. We can definitely recommend this cottage.
Just wonderful. Beautiful house, quirky-chic interior, which doesn't detract at all from the visceral sense of centuries of history in the house. Spotless. A very warm and gracious welcome. And really thoughtfully equipped (plenty of loo roll, kitchen towel, bubble bath, fresh herbs, dishwasher tablets, oil and vinegar, etc). A total delight. Rugged beach just half a mile, friendly neighbours, silence, stars, a cockerel, a love-seat in the garden.
Rhodri was simply a great host. We had a wonderful stay at Bwthyn Rhosyn. It is a beautiful property and bigger than the pictures suggest, the village is very peaceful and the beach is only a 5 minute walk away. We will certainly be recommending Rose Cottage and will no doubt return at some point in the future.
