The safety of our guests is of upmost importance to us. In light of this, and in line with latest travel guidance from the Government, all Trinity House lighthouse holiday cottages are now temporarily closed. Our agents, Rural Retreats, are contacting all customers travelling within the next 7 days, to transfer their holiday dates and are only accepting new bookings that have an arrival date after 3rd July 2020.
We appreciate that these are difficult times and that many of our guests will be feeling the financial impact of the current situation. If you should decide that you do not wish to rebook, you will need to check your travel insurance as to whether you would be covered for cancelling your holiday. Rural Retreats will provide whatever information you need in this regard to support a claim.
We encourage everyone to follow the Government’s guidelines to keep each other safe and well. We hope that in the coming months we will welcome you to holiday with us once again.
An ideal location for an outdoor break the holiday cottages are situated close to the coastal path and the spectacular coastline which is 28 miles long and covers an area from Penarth to Porthcawl, ideal for both walking and cycling.
There are wonderful safe beaches many of which have been awarded the coveted blue flag. The beaches, in particular at Ogmore-by-Sea (just over four miles away), Barry Island, Southerndown and Porthcawl are particularly good for windsurfing. For children, the area is particularly well served with Barry Island Pleasure Park and the Quasar Centre both within a 20-minute drive. St. Donats Art Centre offers exhibitions, cinema, dance, theatre, music and children's events. The Museum of Welsh Life at St. Fagan’s is also 20 minutes away.
Cowbridge offers a good range of shops with small boutiques, craft and art galleries, excellent restaurants and pubs. Further along the coast is the famous Gower peninsula and walking on the Mumbles.
