Overview
Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Gileston, Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales, Wales
The Hay Loft is designed with relaxation in mind. You will find it nestled within a pretty hamlet on the Vale of Glamorgan coast. Set within the grounds of a historic 17th century thatched cottage you are also only a stone's throw from the beach.

Think exposed stonework and lime washed walls.The design is inspired by Farrow and Ball colours, our travels in France and complimented by hand-picked funky designer furniture and fabrics.

If you're looking for something different - off the beaten track, yet within 25 minutes of Cardiff - then you may well have found the perfect escape. A sanctuary which combines the feel of a boutique hotel with the advantage of being able to come and go as you please.

Cardiff International Airport is less than 10 minutes away as is the Glamorgan Heritage Coast, Fonmon Castle, Atlantic College and the...

We wanted small and quiet and we got just that. The cottage was lovely and so easy to get around from there. We really enjoyed our stay. You do really need a car to get around but it is possible to catch buses from the...More

About the neighborhood
Gileston is a very small hamlet near St Athan and Llantwit Major. Llantwit Major is itself a historic town offering many shops, fine restaurants and pubs. It also has a beach popular with walkers and surfers. There are a host of lovely restaurants, but what we love doing best is going for a nice meal and a pint of real cider in the historic Plough and Harrow in Monknash. Failing that the wonderful thatched Blue Anchor pub in East Aberthaw serves fabulous bar meals and a great choice of real ales. You musn't miss a trip to Cowbridge - plenty of ways to spend a few hard earned pennies, whether on tapas, shoes or antiques.
