Recently renovated throughout (July 2016) Rose Cottage is a beautiful pale pink cottage, situated in a picturesque country setting, up a winding lane in the village of Coychurch. Perfect for families or friends to share and close to some lovely sandy beaches. And while you have tranquility, you are also near to local amenities and transport links, being in short proximity to the M4 motorway. Rose Cottage is fully detached with the benefit of additional separate chalet style accommodation known as ' Rose Bud'.
There is a huge array of things to do in the area. For those of you who are keen golfers there is the Coed-Y-Mwstwr 18 hole golf course, 0.5km away from the cottage. The beaches of Ogmore-by-Sea and Southerndown are both a 10-15 minute drive - great for either surfing, horse-riding, exploring or having picnics. Shopping? There is a designer outlet and large cinema complex 10 minutes away. The quaint town of Cowbridge with its boutique shops and restaurants is 15km and within a short drive are many entertaining attractions that South Wales has to offer - among which are The Big Pit, St Fagons Historical Museum, the Brecon Railway and Cardiff Bay with its huge range of watersports, restaurants and activities. The cottage is a great base for walking being only 15 minutes away from the Welsh Coastal Path.
The main cottage consists of four bedrooms. A master with ensuite bathroom, bedroom 1 has a King size bed and en-suite shower. There are also two twin bedded rooms. A travel cot is also available on request. There is also a large family bathroom. On the ground-floor there is a huge family lounge with dining table, large open fireplace and plenty of seating. There is an additional snug which is ideal for children with sofa and has plenty of board games and a few toys for the under 6. The cottage has a brand new large kitchen with bifold doors which provides an excellent view of the surrounding countryside. There is an Aga (note only on in the winter) and a Rangemaster cooker. The kitchen is fully equipped with all amenities. In addition there is a separate utility room and downstairs cloakroom.
We have a separate chalet 'Rose Bud' with the accommodation on the upper mezzannine - overlooking a large lounge with two sofa beds, television and small kitchen. There is a shower room on the ground floor. This makes Rose Cottage and Rose Bud ideal for two families to share or for families with older children. The main house can sleep 8 persons plus a travel cot or two. Rose Bud can sleep 2 upstairs and a max of 4 downstairs but it would be a squeeze.
