From the time you swing open the gates on arrival you know you're going to have a great time. Travelled with my family including my 5 yr-old child and we all loved it as soon as we arrived. The place itself is immaculate with everything you would expect to have at home. The attention to detail is just so impressive. The cottage itself is about 15 minutes from Barry (the nearest major centre) or about 20 minutes from Cardiff so 'civilisation' is within easy reach. There are plenty of places to go visit within 30 minutes drive so it is a great place to explore from. It feels like you are in the middle of nowhere though. There is no road noise and the only thing you really hear is the local wildlife and some sheep in the distance. It is a truly idyllic setting. The owner was wonderful and came over to greet us just after we'd arrived. This will be where my family will stay on all future trips to the area.
