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.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
