Cottage
Surrounded by countryside this unique detached self contained annex/cottage is nestled on the side of a mountain with breathtaking countryside and sea views on a clear day. Accessed via a private lane, this newly redecorated and reconfigured, this is a great place to come for a holiday away with kids/dog, relaxing break, or a romantic hideaway. With good internet, you can also work remotely from here if required. Only 9mins drive from M4, 25/30mins from local beaches (Southerndown /Ogmore by sea) and Cardiff city. Superb location for walking with dramatic scenery

Interaction with guestsYou will have complete privacy in your own detached cottage. It is so peaceful here. Tucked behind the main farmhouse, with its own parking. I live in the farmhouse, and am available if you have any questions or need any advice on where to visit. Great location to go for country walks. Outside you can walk straight onto the common, a short walk up to the peak of the mountain giving you 360 views of the surrounding villages and forest

Secluded cottage, yet close to all the amenities you could want. We felt so comfortable, immediately at home. The large back garden, surrounded by mature trees, was adored by our dog, a Shiba Inu called Nora, who was safe inside its fenced boundaries. She really didn't want to leave. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything a cook could want. Yet, we even got an excellent takeaway curry delivered when we couldn't be bothered to cook. Which was amazing as this cottage is up a little off road track. The view could not be bettered. Right across the vale, the sea either glinting in the sun or shaded in beautiful mist. Days out are easy from here. Highly recommend Ravensend Bay, near Witches Point. Beds are comfy. I had the large double in the open plan area, my nephew had the double in the separate bedroom. We watched so much local wildlife. Of particular note for us were the buzzards flying so close we could easily see their colouring and hear their cries - quiet cries for such a fabulous bird of prey. On rainy days the excellent quality TV with Netflix and Amazon prime etc meant we could follow our series and watch films. The heating was effective with a rather lovely calor gas stove - spare bottles available, just ask. I can't fault this place. Will definitely stay again. Extremely highly recommended. Thankyou Donna, we loved it so much!

Hi Sophie, thank you so much for your wonderful review and for taking time to write so much detail. Makes me so happy to hear how much you enjoyed your stay, and loved the location. My friends and family thought I was crazy to want to live on the side of a mountain, but as you say it really is close to everything. Hope to see you and Nora a other time, great that she loved it too. Take care.

Situated in the quiet hills above Pencoed, with a wonderful view to the sea. Perfect for walking or jogging in the hills behind. A quirky accommodation with a very helpful host. Lovely beaches especially Merthyr Mawr and The Rhondda Heritage Park is well worth a visit.

We had a lovely short break at Donna's cottage with our 17 month old puppy. His first holiday. Location was perfect. Tucked away yet not far from some lovely beaches. Quiet and dog friendly. Nice walks nearby. On one day it rained and we relaxed inside.
