A chocolate box historic thatched cottage with large garden at the heart of a classic Vale of Glamorgan hamlet. This luxury self catering property sleeps 6 sharing in comfort with free Wifi, freeview TV, modern kitchen and family bathroom.

The space

A chocolate box old cottage if ever there was one. Perfectly formed, dinky yet quirky but with enough room for six to share in delightful boutique style comfort. Two double bedrooms and a third room with a bunk bed. A recently fitted modern bathroom, galley kitchen, lounge, dining room, separate toilet and a large garden for relaxing. Free wifi and freeview television.

Located in the heart of the hamlet of Gileston in the Vale of Glamorgan it is conveniently located for Aberthaw, Barry, St Athan, Llantwit Major, Cardiff Airport and the Wales Coastal Path. You can walk to the pebbly beach in less than 10 minutes.

There are a few nice country pubs within a close driving distance including the 13th century Blue Anchor in Aberthaw and the Plough and Harrow in Monknash. The upmarket market town of Cowbridge is some 5 miles away for clothes shopping and antique browsing.

Llantwit Major and Barry are both on the main train line system and a regular bus connects (check out travellinecymru for connections) the two with a stop some 500 yards from the cottage.

Rhodri's cottage was wonderful - so peaceful, well appointed and short drive to great pubs and shops - highly recommended.

Lovely cottage. A little compact but suited our needs. Great hand over and beautiful garden.

A little piece of idyl in a truly unique cottage ideally placed to get away from it all, with great coastal walks and local services on the doorstep. But really, why would you ever want to leave such a beautiful cottage. This comfortably sleeps six, and Rhodri has provided everything you need. Rhodri's responsiveness, attention to detail, and reception on arrival were perfect. 5*s without a doubt!

We just has the most magical Christmas in this stunning Cottage! It is every bit as charming and cosy as the images depict (even more so with the Christmas Tree and decorations). Rhodri had thought of absolutely everything to make sure our stay was enjoyable. The Kitchen is extremely well equipped with plentiful utensils and crockery. Rhodri was an excellent host and made us feel very welcome. The beach and coastal path is just a short walk from this pretty little village. We would love to return one day and will always have fond memories of our family Christmas in this special place.

Rhodri organised a colleague to meet us on arrival who was extremely helpful and very patient as we had been delayed by traffic issues on our journey. He was most welcoming, showing us around the property and explaining where everything was and etc. As we were a large family staying for Christmas we were well looked after and it was nice to see the place tastefully decorated throughout and even with a tree etc. for Christmas.We had everything we needed for our stay and the use of the large fireplace with a basket of logs meant we could settle down immediately. My Family and I had a great stay here and I couldnt recommend it highly enough.

We had an extremely comfortable stay at Rose Cottage. The beds are comfortable and the house is really well equipped. Rhodri was very helpful and he seems to have thought of everything. I highly recommend this charming character property.

I love clever design, great customer service and luxury in equal measure. I also love property and run a number of wonderfully quirky self-catering holiday rentals in Wales.
