“Lovely accommodation in a picturesque village”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The accommodation is just as it appears in the photographs and is of a very high standard. A converted coach house, this property is full of quirky little features like a curved staircase & low doorways. There is everything there that you might need but with young children we felt a DVD would have been helpful especially on the one day that it poured down!
All the rooms are on the first floor up a short flight viva of curved stairs. There is a combined kitchen, dining and living area. From there you go through a low doorway into the very large master bedroom with a comfy king size bed. An even lowerr doorway from there leads into a small room with bunk beds and then through a door into the only bathroom upstairs. This has a bath and a shower in it. The other bathroom downstairs only has a toilet and a sink.
We went to the little church next door for the Sunday and it was so good to meet the locals and get their ideas on where to go and what to see. We met Lorraine the owner there and she was lovely, so friendly.
Places to visit Cardiff Bay, the Dr Who Experience, Porthkerry for 12 hole pitch & putt, St Fagan's, Barry for chips and amusement arcades. Walks along the coastal path with some amazing views. We ventured as far north as St David' which was lovely.

“Delightful Holiday home in a remote Welsh Village”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was an excellent accommodation in a tiny Welsh Village. The home was clean and tidy, the beds were soft and comfortable, the kitchen had everything you could possibly need and the hostess couldn't do enough for us.

“Amazing stay! Location and Venue was perfect”
Reviewed July 5, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Could not fault our stay at The Gileston Coach House. Very private and spacious with amazing views and excellent pubs near by. Was ideal location with Barry on the doorstep and Cardiff 20 mins away. If you want the best of both (Country and City) this is the ideal place to stay. The Coach House was spotless and a lot bigger than expected from the photos. Great value for money and will defiantly be back.

“The perfect break”
Reviewed June 9, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I booked this apartment for my friends Hen weekend , as most of us our mums to small children and also have stressful jobs it was important we found somewhere that was quiet and relaxing but also close enough to town that we could go out and have fun , we could not have asked for better. Having seen photos we were all excited to get to the apartment but we're not sure what to expect knowing online photos are are often deceiving , when we arrived we were shocked to find that it exceeded all our expectations and looked even better than we expected it was incredible it was so peaceful and beautiful , we especially enjoyed having champagne and afternoon tea in the lovely private courtyard (prepared ourselves) we had so much to fit into our weekend we were all disappointed we didn't have more time to spend relaxing at the apartment , I can't rate it enough I will define be going back this year with my husband and children and so will my friends! I would recommend this to anyone!
We definitely did not want to go home!

“beautiful flat peaceful location”
Reviewed May 25, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Gorgeous flat, lots of space, in a quiet hamlet. There's a local shop 5mins away, if you have forgotten anything, and well serviced by major roads links. Llantwit major is a short drive with a cute little pebble beach, cowbridge and Cardiff also very easy to get to. This is definitely the best of both worlds.

Loved the Gileston Coach House. We spent a week there with our Scottie Dog, we were lucky with the weather and managed to get to various beaches along the coast every day. The Coach House is well appointed and had everything we required, although my wife said she would have liked a Microwave and Dishwasher! Overall we enjoyed our stay and would definately recommend it.

“Authentic renovation of The Coach House”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed at the Gileston coach house for my daughters graduation. When, some 5 years ago she started her course, her father promised her that when she graduated as a doctor he would book the family into The Hilton hotel. True to his word on results days he tried, only to find that it was fully booked. We then had to quickly search for an alternative. We stumbled across Gileston Coach House and made a reservation.

For a family of 5, which includes twin boys aged 18, it has proved to be the perfect choice. The accomodation was spacious, comfortable and beautifully presented.

We left with lasting memories of both the graduation and the Coach House. Lorraine is definately the 'Lady of The Manor House'!
