Cowbridge, Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales, Wales
Our cottages are set in a peaceful, pretty and rural location, however, we are just a mile and a half from the M4 giving you fantastic access to Cardiff, The Bay, Cowbridge Town and the beautiful Heritage Coast. Each cottage overlook the surrounding countryside. Swallow Cottage looks out over the beautiful Maize field and The Loft has stunning views out towards the Peterston Moors and North over the countryside towards the Brecon Beacons. Our Shepherd Hut, The Hideaway is a must for those wanting something different. Very cosy with its own private terrace. Each cottage has it's own patio area and car parking and a bbq is available for alfresco dining.

The Secret Garden is open for all guests with a bbq, fire pit and fairy lit trees and hedges so why not have an alfresco night. Just let us know and we can confirm availability....

My sister found the Shepherd's Hut for us and she couldn't have found us a better place for some much needed rest and relaxation. It was so cute and cosy and in a beautiful peaceful location with tranquil views across the fields. We relaxed instantly and had the best night's sleep in years in a very comfortable bed.
