A great location to explore all that the area has to offer, with the old town of Cowbridge in the Vale of Glamorgan just 20 mins away, The Rhonda Valleys 10 mins away, The Brecon Beacons 1 hour away and within reach of Heritage Coastline of South Wales.

About Steve Rowlands

My parents and grandparents were born and bred in this historical town of Llantrisant and we live locally with our two sons. Having grown up in the area we are familiar with all it has to offer and the surrounding areas.

Steve Rowlands purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Steve Rowlands chose Wales

We bought Bwthyn Bach which means 'Little Cottage' 10 years ago for its location in this small town of Llantrisant. Its situation near to local shops, pubs and walks is perfect for a relaxing holiday and easy access to all the beautiful surrounding areas in South Wales.

What makes this cottage unique

Bwthyn Bach benefits from being in the centre of Llantrisant with parking outside the property or a car park just 100 mts away. We welcome well behaved small dogs.

“very relaxed and ideal location”

5 out of 5

Friendly and welcoming service from the owner. Excellent communication and genuine wish for guests to have an enjoyable stay. The property was well situated for getting out and about and has been refurbished to a high standard. We loved our stay and hope to return again at some point in the future.

Fabulous little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage, so clean and tidy. Everything you could ask for. The Shower was amAzing!! Good free parking nearby, lovely little local shops and an easy drive to Cardiff, and other places across South Wales. Electric & gas paid separately but ours came to about £6.00 for 4 days/3 nights, just remember to have some pound coins handy! Many thanks for a wonderful stay, highly recommend and will definitely try and book again in my next trip to S Wales.

A beautiful petite country cottage

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage with everything you need and spotlessly clean. Lovely views and a superb friendly village. Fab food at the Bear Inn a short stroll up the hill. The locals can not do enough to welcome and help you. Highly recommend a stay at this lovely cottage.

Lovely Cottage for visiting Cardiff and area

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely little cottage located about 15 minutes outside of Cardiff and an easy drive as well to Brecon Beacons for those who like to hike. Steve was a pleasure to deal with and made check-in and check-out very easy. The second bedroom with bunk beds is perfect for children (or a squeeze for adults) and the master bedroom is very comfortable. We had a lovely stay and the local community is very friendly with a very good pub a 2 minute walk away. There is parking outside the cottage but there is also a free community parking lot across the street which we found more convenient with our larger rental vehicle. I would recommend this cottage for anyone planning on visiting Cardiff or south Wales but a vehicle is necessary.

Beautiful cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was easy to find with the postcode the owner gave us. We loved the property and the gorgeous view, especially the farm opposite.

Only surprise was that paying for electric and gas weren't included in the original price. But only about £20 for 6days.

Very kind of the owner to post our coats to us after leaving them in a cupboard.

Just returned from a lovely stay in this charming and spotlessly clean cottage! Location is brilliant, lovely pubs and restaurants locally and only a short train ride away from Cardiff.

The free car park just a few metres away from the cottage was perfect. We very much enjoyed a day in the Brecon Beacons which is just a short drive away.

Would definitely stay again!
