    Rudimentary furnishings too! Excellent place

    - Elaine, April 2024

    We take on board all feedback and improve where we can. So far, the size of the second bedroom has not been a problem and have had two adults staying in there. We feel that for the overall size of the accommodation and the facilities The Stables still represents good value for money. Property Owner

The property

The Stables is a character reverse-level cottage resting in the rural spot of St Athan.

You are greeted to the property with private off-road parking and a private front patio with furniture so you can enjoy you morning coffee in the fresh air.

Stepping in the property, the ground-floor boasts an immaculate double bedroom with storage for guests to unpack, and a single bedroom with an ocean blue theme and a pull-out bed which is great for children.

The ground-floor also boasts a cupboard with the washing machine, and a stylish, white-tiled wet room so guests can get ready in style.

Climbing up the red-carpeted staircase, there is a spacious sitting room with high ceilings, exposed beams and plenty of seating to enjoy an evening of good television.

Whilst in the kitchen/diner, you can whip up an evening meal to enjoy round the dining table, as you toast to a wonderful holiday.

The stunning cottage is completed with a cloakroom for guests on the first-floor.

Take a short drive or walk down the country lane and into St Athan where there is a Post Office and two convenience stores so you can grab any essentials, or if you fancy a night out, there are two ideal pubs, The Roost and The Three Horseshoes, both of which serve yummy meals and local ales.

Nearby, you can enjoy a stroll along the pebbled beach at Llantwit Major, or walk along the surrounding cliffs to enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean.
