Llanvithyn Cottage is a 200 year old barn, converted from the stone out buildings for Llanvithyn House, a former fortified medieval house and a site of significant historic importance having reputedly been the location of the 5th Century Llancarfan Monastery. The spacious and exceptionally comfortable 4* graded accommodation boasts flagstone and pitch pine floors, exposed stone walls, vaulted ceilings with original beams, wood burning stove and quality furnishings throughout. Situated in the heart of the beautiful Vale of Glamorgan, the property is surrounded by unspoilt countryside and enjoys uninterrupted views down the Llancarfan Valley and across the Bristol Channel towards Somerset.
