The space

A cute cottage in a village setting yet a few minutes from the M4, a large shopping centre (Talbot Green) and 8 miles, 15 minutes drive, from Cardiff. A village pub across the road with great food. Miskin Manor and the Miskin Arms are lovely upmarket options nearby for coffee, afternoon tea, food & drinks. Many public footpaths from village for nice walks. A private small garden with seating. We have a wood burning stove for cosy evenings. A new bathroom with shower. Separate dining room.

I had family visiting from Germany who were delighted with this accommodation. They had previously stayed at a Premier Inn but much preferred the cottage.

Lovely cottage in a stunning little village. Everything you need is provided and more! The chocolate on arrival and the log fire were a highlight!

We had a fantastic time at this wonderful cottage. Communication was excellent from the moment of booking through to check out. It was easy to find, with detailed instructions for everything. The kitchen is well stocked and plenty of towels, quilts and blankets. The fire was wonderful after spending days kite surfing in Porthcawl in quite fresh conditions! It's a great location, easy to get to places, only a short drive from Caerphilly Castle which we loved! Having the 24hr Tesco less than ten minutes drive away is a great bonus. Shower was always hot. Decor lovely and homely. The only thing I would say is if you're sensitive to traffic noise you may wish to stay in the back bedroom with the velux window as it's a bit quieter in there. We will definitely be back. Thank you Carys!
