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 property enjoys a quiet location in the Vale of Glamorgan, just a short walk from the pebble beach in the seaside village of Gileston. The beach is perfect for those who are looking to escape the crowds and simply enjoy the tranquil surroundings, however, for a complete change of scene, nearby Barry Island offers a livelier taste of seaside life. Located less than seven miles away from the cottage, Barry is a favourite day trip for holidaymakers and locals alike, offering a fun seafront pleasure park with a good range of both thrilling and family friendly rides. A little further to the west, some fifteen miles from the property, the Welsh capital Cardiff is a vibrant city with a fantastic choice of shops, bars, museums, and arts venues, as well as a host of attractions including Cardiff Castle, Bute Park, and even a tour of Dr Who locations. (Please check admittance for the various attractions).

This property is accessed via a bridge which leads to the front door and on to the delightful living accommodation. The lounge is the natural heart of the cottage, offering a relaxing cosy atmosphere with its warming wood burner, TV, DVD, and two comfortable sofas, one of which is a sofa bed which can be used to accommodate two extra guests. The kitchen/diner has the same charming character as the lounge and offers a dining table alongside an oven, hob, and fridge/freezer. A separate utility room is a handy space where guests will find the microwave and washer/dryer. The property’s double bedroom is a restful retreat with an elegant feel to it, whilst the shower room is a contemporary space offering a corner shower and WC.

Outside, there is a pretty, enclosed garden to the front of the property which has a sunny seating area with garden furniture from where guests can enjoy the fantastic countryside views towards the sea. .

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

A nice quiet location, just half a mile from the sea (pebble beach, I'm afraid!). Hosts were helpful, and there was a very nice welcome pack. Well-furnished, excellent central heating (really appreciated as it was a cold February). Handy for Barry, Cardiff, and interesting towns around like Llantwit Major and Cowbridge. The coast looks worth explorRead moreing in future trips. We'll be back! Hide

A wonderful lazy break away from the pace of normal life. This cozy cottage is just perfect for two with a spacious lounge and sofas arranged around the wood burning stove. The kitchen is well equipped and the garden is lovely too, although probably nicer in summer. The village is charming with amenities available within a mile or two. The beach isRead more nice, although mostly rocks. Sandcastles are probably best left for elsewhere. Hide

Lovely cottage, had everything we needed including blankets and towels for our dog. Welcome hamper was great and much appreciated. Garden was safe for the dog, but she did manage to jump from the steps into the owner's garden (also fenced so still secure). Quiet location with lovely view over fields to the Bristol Channel.

Reviewed by Barbara 12th July 2019

Pebbles is a lovely cottage to stay in. Well designed and presented with some fun elements such as a bridge to get to the garden. The hosts are extremely welcoming to humans and canines alike and the welcome pack is very generous. The garden is large and secure for the dog with beautiful views across the fields and sea.
