Charming cottage finished to a high-standard throughout, situated in the quiet seaside village of Gileston, on the South Wales coast, just 6.5 miles from Barry Island.

This charming cottage by the sea in the South Wales village of Gileston is the perfect place for a seaside escape. It’s ideal for couples or a small family, with two dogs welcomed. Dog walks on Gileston’s pebbly beach are just a short distance away, and there are lots of glorious coastal walks and beach days to be had nearby.

The cottage is peaceful, reached via a bridge. It has been renovated with a contemporary style while preserving many original features, such as exposed stonework. It is light and bright with lovely views over the countryside to the coast. There is a cosy lounge with a wood burner, where you can enjoy evenings curled up with the dogs or afternoons looking out over the fields. The farmhouse-style kitchen/diner has everything you’ll need to cook up your favourite meals. And there is a cute bedroom and a sofa bed with two more sleeping spaces. Outside, there is an enclosed garden to the front where you can sip on a morning tea or evening glass of wine while the dogs play, and you enjoy the views.

Nearby Barry, 7 miles away, makes for a fantastic day trip. This famous resort has all the fun of the British seaside, with a great sandy beach, fairground rides and a lively atmosphere. If you’d rather stick to quieter beaches, join the West Wales Coast Path to explore little-known villages and secluded bays. For a great choice of bars, restaurants and shops, the Welsh capital of Cardiff is only 15 miles away.

If home from home is for you with all the creature comforts you enjoy then Pebbles cottage is for you. So peaceful with lovely views and our hosts Jo and Peter are so friendly and our welcome pack including treats for our dog were so appreciative especially as we arrived late due to a tiring journey from the West Country with jams on the M5. The VaRead morele of Glamorgan is so beautiful and easily accessible from the cottage. The lovely safe garden is nice to relax in with garden furniture to enjoy. Hide

An excellent little cottage just made for two. The upstairs lounge was big and comfortable with double aspect views over the sea and plenty of seating.

Lovely "cottage" with everything one could wish for. Most obliging of hosts who ensured that our stay fulfilled all our wishes. A great place to meet up with families for the first time in 18 months following travel restrictions. Although the weather was not on our side the large garden would be an attraction in warmer/drier weather. A superb find.Read more Would rebook with no hesitation when visiting the area again. Hide
