Reviews

Lovely little cottage with a great view.Colin from Aberdeenshire - 6th February 2018
Green quiet place in the landscape, but near to the beach and to Cardiff. Visit Doctor Who Experience and Cardiff national museumKate - 6th August 2017
The property was lovely, it had everything you could want and more. The views were stunning and location was great. Barry was lovely for a day at the beach and Cardiff has a great bus tour, shopping and concerts.Julie from Worcestershire - 14th July 2017
We were on a low key holiday looking to do some walking and lazing about. This property was perfect, felt like we were away from it all in the country. It was certainly close enough to enjoy Cardiff and the local sights had we been interested. We loved walking through PorthKerry Country ParkLois from Canada - 1st June 2017
Home from home. Spotlessly clean. Made very welcome.
Tips: Walk the country park nearby. Barry is worth a visit and the Blue Anchor pub!!!Jo form Bridgnorth - 3rd May 2017
Relaxing and comfortable with lovely views.
Recommends: Walk the coastal path in the Barry area.Family from Surrey - 3rd November 2016
