    “The cottage was lovely, the information provided before hand and at the property was all very helpful.”

    We really enjoyed that it was on a working farm, and the owner was really nice. It's so close to Cardiff yet feels very rural which is great. Will definitely recommend to friends and family!

Myrtle Cottage is a homely, single-storey cottage resting amongst a courtyard of converted farm buildings in St Brides-super-Ely, Glamorgan.

Surrounded by green fields, with cattle and horses, while being within reach of the capital city of Cardiff by car, Myrtle Cottage makes an ideal base for a family or friends to explore what South Wales has to offer.

When you arrive, step into the open-plan living space, sure to be the social hub of the home throughout your stay.

Here, you can cosy up for the evening to watch TV, cook up tasty dinners for your loved ones in the well-stocked kitchen, or dine and catch up with a takeaway at the dining table.

From here, head upstairs to find two neat and bright bedrooms, a double and twin, where you can get some rest after a fun-filled day with loved ones.

Completing the property is a bathroom with both a bath and shower over, perfect if you need a quick freshen up or a long soak after a day of walking.

Outside, savour your morning coffee or dine alfresco in the warmer evenings, with the idyllic greenery around you and the gentle grazing of the animals in the adjoining fields - a hit with the children!

You can find a handful of convenience stores and fast-food restaurants within a short drive, where you can enjoy a night away from the kitchen.

Conveniently located near Cardiff, why not spend the day exploring the city, admiring the architecture and culture, and visiting the numerous galleries and museums, theatres and cinemas.

Culture vultures may want to take a trip to The Museum of Welsh Life at St Fagans or search for the ruins of ancient castles dotted about the area.

For leisurely walks, simply set off from the doorstep and find Parc Coed Machen, head a little further out to Forest Farm Country Park, or spend an afternoon wandering the National Trust’s Dyffryn Gardens.
