A very well equipped modern cottage with a wood burner to ward off the winter evenings. Set next to the owners house in a quiet location close to Bridgend. The owners made us hugely welcome with a great welcome pack of food and drink. The Christmas lights were another great little touch. Very enjoyable stay. We barely scratched the surface of places to see and loved the cosy evenings by the fire.

I rented this cottage so that I could spend some time with my husband who works in Llantrisant. I couldn't have wanted better. Shopping is within easy driving distance and I spent most afternoons with a pot of tea and welsh cakes, provided by the owners, watching the tennis. We received clear instructions on his the cottage, via a single track road. And when you enter through the gates you feel you have arrived somewhere special. The cottage is finished and furnished to a high standard and the owners have thought of everything needed to make this a lovely stay. The decor is light and modern and fresh. We arrived to find the fridge stocked, ncluding enough for a cooked breakfast and a deli board. They was also a tray of sundries and fresh flowers. The bathroom has luxury bathing items provided and there were robes and slippers for us both in the wardrobe. A large TV in the lounge and music in the bedroom. The huge bed is sooo comfortable, you may just want to stay in it. Comprehensive guides are provided for the cottage and what to do I the surrounding area. The grounds are beautiful and it's obvious the care that has been given to its upkeep and thoughtful planting is done in a way to provide privacy for cottages users. The owners couldn't have done any more for us I could carry on enthusing more but safe to say, if you are looking at this cottage don't hesitate, you will not be disappointed We hope o be back again and see more of the area soon. Thanks again for a fantastic stay

This property has been renovated to a luxury standard and is very well equipped and comfortable. we stayed for a weekend for our wedding anniversary so were looking for something really special. It is well situated from the M4 and only 5 mins drive from the nearest town. We had a lovely meal out in Cowbridge at The Market Place restaurant which was superb and visited The Gower beaches for the day. The owners were very amenable and friendly but allowed us our privacy and also went out of their way to make our stay perfect. I would highly recommend this property and would go back again.

My partner and I recently stayed at The Cwtch and had a wonderful weekend. The property is beautifully furnished, modern but also super cosy and homely - we honestly could have moved in permanently - it's just a shame that the weather was so nice we didn't get the chance to light up the wood burner! The secluded location made it ideal for a relaxing break, but was still only a short drive from plenty of attractions, shops etc for when we wanted to explore. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch, containing a selection of snacks, drinks and bits for breakfast. The owners were also incredibly welcoming and accommodating, so all in all we had a lovely weekend and it would be a pleasure to stay at The Cwtch again :)
