Find cottages in GlamorganVisit Glamorgan

Situated on Wales' most southerly coast Glamorgan and the Vale of Glamorgan are home to the capital city of Cardiff. Here's you'll also find a beautiful coastal landscape of sandy beaches, windswept cliffs and the green rolling hills of the interior.

The stunning Gower Peninsula was in fact the very first place to be awarded an 'Area of Outstanding Beauty' and 50 years on it still rightly has this accolade. This enclosed peninsula is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and Bristol Channel and has rich and varied landscape. Here you'll find clean sandy beaches (including Rhossili beach voted in the top ten beaches in the world by TripAdvisor in 2014), dramatic wind swept cliffs, hills, valleys and woodland; just perfect for a relaxing break where you can unwind amongst a most beautiful and unspoilt environment.

The Glamorgan Heritage Coast extends for some 14 miles from Porthcawl to Aberthaw, where there are uncrowded beaches and wonderful sea views. Of particular note is Dunraven Bay and the walk from St. Donat's to Llantwit Major is well worth tackling. While at Llantwit Major you could take the opportunity to tour the Nash Point Lighthouse, allow an hour and the tour is subject to weather conditions – remember there a lot of steps!

Porthkerry Country Park near Barry is a sheltered valley comprised of 220 acres of forest and meadowland with nature trails, picnic areas, mini-golf and a play area; it's one of the best places to keep the family entertained and is close enough to the coast for pottering by the sea or climbing up the cliffs for great views.

If you like to be beside the seaside then Whitmore Bay at Barry Island offers a winning combination of British holiday heritage and some lovely expanses of sand and sea. Similarly, the pier at Penarth offers a fantastic window into the Glamorgan holidays of yesteryear, while being a fantastic attraction in its own right.

For a calming and peaceful day out visit Dyffryn Gardens in the Vale of Glamorgan countryside. Extending over 55 acres this wonderful Edwardian Grade 1 garden has an Arboretum of trees from around the world, formal lawns, and garden rooms. To see nature at its very best then Kenfig Nature Reserve is the place to be, this sand dune nature reserve is also home to Glamorgan's biggest natural lake; a great place to see insect and bird life. It also has a visitor center and shop.

This part of Wales is not short on natural beauty and there are plenty of days out and activities to enjoy. So take a look at holiday cottages in Glamorgan.

Commanding magnificent uninterrupted views over Port-Eynon Bay, these delightful, seaside holiday properties are situated on the Gower Peninsula, the UK’s first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Fennel Cottage (ref OMK) and Malt Cottage (ref OML) each feature a first floor living room with French doors leading to a balcony, for maximum enjoyment of the sea views. Carreglwyd Farmhouse (ref OQ1) is a detached property that is comfortably furnished and offers a spacious retreat for families and large groups alike to enjoy this magnificent part of the world. For those who can bear to tear themselves away from the comfort of Croft Acre, there is an array of attractions to enjoy.
The Swansea coastline shelters many beautiful bays, glorious sandy beaches secluded coves and breathtaking cliff-top coastal walks and abundant wildlife. The headland, owned by the National Trust, has a most spectacular coastal path which veers along crags above thundering waves for 5 miles. The tip of the headland displays a natural cave, which delves into the hillside, and further along to the west, the man-made cave Culver Hole is more easily explored - possibly having served as a stronghold for the former Port Eynon Castle, which existed in days bygone. Subsequent uses have included a smugglers’ retreat, as well as an armoury and dovecote. For walkers, the area is a paradise, with the spectacular coastal path to Rhossili (5 miles) offering wonderful views. A point to visit along the way is Paviland Cave, where the skeleton of a Stone Age hunter was discovered - believed to be some 19,000 years old. The pretty village of Rhossili gives access to an isolated string of rocks, known as Worms Head, which can be reached on foot at low tide, and for those keen on surfing, boogie boards and surf boards can be hired from the village. Surfing tuition (half day and full day courses) is also available a mile or so from Rhossili at the Welsh Surfing Federation’s Surf School. Not only for watersports enthusiasts, the region is also very popular with cyclists.
Swansea, lying in the opposite direction, offers a vibrant pace of life with its many bars, restaurants and shops. Accessible within half an hour’s drive, the city’s many attractions include Plantasia - a great pyramidal glasshouse with wondrous plants and a mini-zoo of monkeys, butterflies, an aquarium and even a python. Swansea itself offers a vibrant pace of life, with its many bars, restaurants and shops. The Liberty Stadium is also home to the ’Swans’, the premier league Swansea City Football Club. The LC leisure centre has indoor climbing, a network of pools, rides and water slides, a boardrider and spa days. The Dylan Thomas Centre, which was opened on St Davids Day in 1995 as part of Swansea’s UK City of Literature celebrations and features two galleries, restaurant, book shops and craft shops, is also worth a visit.
Cardiff, the bustling capital of Wales, can be reached in an hour and has plenty to keep the whole family entertained. An extraordinary castle can be visited, as can the great Millennium Stadium - home of Welsh rugby and the nation’s football team. A vast array of museums and galleries can be enjoyed in the city, from the hands-on Fantasmic (great for children), the Centre for Visual Arts and Ffotogallery, to the more traditional National Museum and Gallery, and the regimental museums housed in the castle. The National Botanical Gardens of Wales are also worth a visit, where a Mediterannean climate is maintained in a vast glasshouse, and wonderful plants from all over the world can be enjoyed. There are also extensive shopping centres and the Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay. Other attractions to visit include the leisure centre and National Waterfront Museum in Swansea and Gower Heritage Centre at Parkmill. Shop 2 miles.
