Fabulous Dunraven Bay, Blue Flag, on the Glamorgan Heritage Coast, the ’Golden Coast’ of South Wales, is a 5-minute walk away along a wooded footpath from this charming, detached holiday cottage. Once home to a family of friendly hens and now converted into a characterful holiday home on the Glamorgan Heritage Coast and is located at the end of a 600-yard private driveway. It is together with Slade Cottage in the small courtyard of ’Slade’, a gentleman’s residence formerly part of the Dunraven Estate but now privately owned, which includes the premier organic award winning Slade Farm, which has as its own farm shop 2 miles away.
There are two ground floor bedrooms, a living room on the mezzanine floor overlooked by a galleried dining area, a kitchen with lovely rural views over organic pastures and a pretty single bedroom on the first floor. The small walled private patio is ideal for barbecues and the separate large lawned area is great for games of all sorts. Guided farm walks, tractor rides and bird-watching safaris are available to cottage visitors by arrangement with the owners, as well as a wealth of detailed information about the local environment. Within walking distance is the local pub or try the Italian restaurant for a wonderful Italian meal, very family friendly. Explore Cowbridge, the Bond Street of Wales, with its boutique shops lining an ancient Roman road and quaint Llantwit Major, with narrow streets steeped in Welsh history and an ancient seat of learning for Welsh saints.
The Hen House can be booked together with Slade Cottage (QC1201) to accommodate up to 14 guests.
