Stunning former milking parlour in the grounds of a 13th Century converted tithe barn in the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan, newly restored and refurbished. The cottage is a single-storey building with two conjoining bedrooms (one double room, one with a double bunk bed; great for larger families or groups of friends), a bathroom with spa bath and separate shower and a huge open plan living area with a wood burning stove. This leads through to the modern gloss kitchen, which is equipped with everything you could need: diswasher, washing machine, integral microwave, oven and grill, two hobs (one induction, one ceramic) and then through to a large dining area, with oak table and chairs (seats 6 but more chairs can be provided, along with a high chair if required). A sofa bed provides additional sleeping facilities for another two people. In its own pretty private paved and gravelled terrace garden with brazier, barbecue and al fresco dining area, Glebe Cottage is perfectly situated for countryside tranquillity but within easy reach of South Wales's main tourist attractions.
A 15 minute drive from Wales International Airport (pickup and drop-off can be arranged) and a 15 minute drive to Cardiff centre with its wealth of restaurants, shops, galleries and theatres. The nearest train station is a 15 minute walk away, but transport to the station can be arranged with the owners. The beautiful historic market town of Cowbridge is only a 20 minute drive away, and the cottage sits between the Victorian Seaside town of Penarth on the one side, and Barry on the other, both 10 minutes away.

About this location
The Vale of Glamorgan region
The Vale of Glamorgan sits at the southernmost tip of the Welsh coast, and is a mainly rural part of the country, with lots of unspoilt countryside, farmland and coastal walks. But one of the best things about this part of the world is its close proximity to Wales's capital, Cardiff (only 15-20 minutes away), with its wealth of tourist attractions, culture and culinary treats. Other places of note in the Vale of Glamorgan are the Victorian seaside town of Penarth, full of elegant Victorian and Edwardian architecture, along with its seafront restaurants and beautiful pier. Penarth has a real buzz about it; its cafe-bars, restaurants and boutiques make it well worth the visit.
Further around the coast is the famous town of Barry, the biggest town in Wales, and the home of Gavin and Stacey, as well as being the location for many other recent TV shows (Dr Who, Being Human, to name but a few) and movies. A must-visit for those who love good food is The Gallery restaurant on Broad Street. For more family fun, head to Barry Island for the beautiful sandy beach and fairground attractions.
About a 20 minute drive away is the picturesque market town of Cowbridge, which boasts a reputation for being the town of choice for well-heeled South Walians. Beautiful cobbled alleyways chock-full of speciality food stores, gift shops and boutiques, as well as a high street full of designer shops and restaurants.

"A gem of a find... Gorgeous accommodation."
We stayed at Glebe cottage for three nights this week and had a wonderful few days.
With four children age ten and under, we struggle to find decent accommodation which caters for all of us and is reasonably priced. I searched the internet for somewhere to stay near to Cardiff and was lucky enough to discover Glebe Cottage.
A beautifully renovated open plan building, which was once a milking shed, the cottage was perfect for the six of us. Three of our children shared the double bunk bed, which they loved, whilst a travel cot was provided for our 16 month old. The cottage was spacious and well equipped with everything we needed, and the owner Wendy, (who lived next door) thoughtfully provided milk, a few tea bags and fruit for our arrival.
Unfortunately the weather took a turn for the worse for our three night stay, so we didn't make use of the beautifully landscaped outdoor space and BBQ, but certainly would have done, had we had sunshine.
The highlight for our children and my husband was the jacuzzi bath, which they loved, whilst the power shower/wet room was my favourite.
Wendy was lovely and so welcoming, to all of us and it was obvious from the decor and the small touches that she has put so much care and attention into Glebe cottage. We are already looking forward to staying there again.
It was lovely to meet such a charming family - the children were all delightful and friendly - and it will be a pleasure to have you to stay with us again.
