Idyllic property

The Gallops is a wonderful property conversion in a beautiful setting with views all the way across to Devon. Although rural it is close to many attractions together with Cardiff itself. There is the added advantage of having several pubs close by for convenient meals out as well. A lovely base for our annual visit to family in South Wales.

5/5 Excellent

The barn is amazing with beautiful views

I rented this barn as somewhere for me and my bridal party to get ready the day of my wedding. The barn was big enough to accommodate us and the views were amazing. We also had the sunshine for the whole weekend.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely converted barn with great accommodation and in a lovely peaceful setting

Jane and Les were very helpful and friendly. The barn was ideal for our stay with six adults and three large dogs. The facilities are excellent and the area outside was great to let the dogs run around in a safe fenced in area Would we go again ,yes

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful property, couldn't have asked for more.

The cottage was immaculately clean, warm, comfortable, peaceful and has everything you could need. Jane made us feel so welcome when we arrived. The garden was huge and perfectly safe and secure for our dog to have the best time watching the horses go by. We had a lovely stay, it's perfectly situated for lots of long beach walks, great pub dinners and then back for a cosy evening in front of the woodburner, cant wait to go back.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely place

We had a lovely stay at the gallops. The house was well equipped with everything you might need including high chair, travel cot and children’s toys and games. The log fire made the house lovely and cosey when the wind was howling. The location is great and is ideally placed to visit much that South Wales as to offer.
