"A Gem in the Welsh Countryside". The perfect place to relax with stunning views just 20 min drive from Cardiff. A new Barn conversion set in a large paddock with unrestricted views over open countryside to the Bristol Channel in the distance and North Devon coastline and hills beyond. "The Gallop's" is situated along a country lane where the only traffic is likely to be the racehorses on their daily exercise from the adjacent racing stables, yet has easy access to major roads.

The perfect place to relax in comfort in beautiful accommodation furnished and equiped to a high standard in a contemporary style maintaining some of the original exposed beams. The two story spacious, 3 bedroomed detatched stone barn, will sleep up to 7 people plus sofa bed downstairs,

The open plan ground floor includes a kitchen, dining and living area with a wood burner and full central heating a separate utility room and separate toilet. The first floor has a Double bedroom with ensuite /shower and access to outside glass balcony, the second bedroom has twin beds and access to its own glass balcony, from both you can enjoy the quite of the countryside and spectacular views. The third smaller bedroom has a single bed and a bunk bed suitable for children under 12 and the main bathroom has a shower over the bath. There is secure storage for bikes or sporting equipment. Children and dog friendly.

The picturesque village of Llancarfan and the Fox and Hounds Pub is one and a half miles away, the delightful market town of Cowbridge is 10 minutes drive, with many fashion and gourmet food shops line the High Street, and there are all types of cafes, pubs and restaurants to choose from. Cardiff International Airport is 10 minutes away, Barry and Barry Island with its fun fair, amusements and beach is a 15 minute drive.

Llantwit Major is the site of ST Iltydds which was the site of one of the first christian churches in the British Isles and probably the start of early Christianity in Wales is also 15 minutes away.

The beautiful beaches at Southern Down & Llantwit Major and popular with surfers and Ogmore-by-Sea has lovely sandy stretches and not far away the Porthcawl beach and fun fair. Swansea and the Mumbles are less than an hours drive. The Heritage coast line is close by with wonderful walks along the cliffs from Penarth down towards Porthcawl. Cardiff is 10 miles away, an easy 20 minute drive with its famous Castle, Victorian Shopping Arcades, Markets and Civic Centre, including the University and The National Museum and Art Gallery. Cardiff Bay is linked by a footpath to the Barrage, Norwegian Church and Pier Head which is buzzing with restaurants and cafes and The Doctor Who Experience! Beautiful New barn conversion furnished and decorated to a very high standard. Quiet rural setting with great views. Two glass balconies leading from each bedroom watch the sunrise and sunset as well as the race horses on their morning exercise.

Getting around

Interaction with guest

Access is available via a key safe. I like to meet my guests shortly after they arrive to answer any questions they may have and see them before they leave. I live 5 minutes away so available is required.
