The Cottage

The Glamorgan Heritage Coast is characterised by its beautiful and diverse beaches with rolling surf; quaint villages and fascinating towns; spectacular cliffs with fantastic views, ancient castles and unique history. It is the most southerly point in Wales and gets more sunshine hours per year than Northern Italy.

Located in the heart of the Heritage Coast, Marcross is a rural community set inland but only a short walk from the sea. In the aerial view of the village Pear Tree Cottage can be seen as the last but one building on the right hand side of the picture.

“Lovely cottage, fabulous location for coastal walks and exploring inland. Very relaxing week….Overall a truly excellent stay. We are genuinely sad to be leaving. Hopefully will be back someday” .
H & S from Portsmouth

“A delightful cottage, comfortable and exceptionally clean with calming atmosphere. Fantastic utilities, brilliant countryside setting… a huge thank you. We want to return”.
Mr. & Mrs. H from Texas.

The spacious holiday accommodation is approached via a level concrete path from the off road parking area. The front door leads into the conservatory. In addition to providing a  dining area, this room is perfect for relaxing with a book or just letting your thoughts unwind. The windows look over your own lawned garden that contains hardwood furniture and portable BBQ. The garden is bordered by walls and hedges and is dog-proof and private.  The conservatory leads into the kitchen. If you are feeling particularly industrious there is ample equipment  and worktop space to produce a full “Sunday lunch” Appliances include a toaster, kettle,  fridge, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer and an electric oven and hob. Leading off the Kitchen in an L shape is the comfortable living room. There is an electric “wood burner” that enhances the atmosphere. For your entertainment there is a radio/ cassette/CD player, a satellite Television and a DVD player. There is also a small collection of books and some CDs and DVD's. From either of the two windows you can see horses, sheep and cattle grazing in the adjoining fields. You may even see a fox, hare, heron, kestrel, goldfinch, or any one of the number of wild life species we have in the area. From the living room, through an inner hall you will find the tastefully decorated bedroom with its double bed. The window to the front looks over a garden to the quiet road beyond where you will often see a herd of cows travelling to and from their twice daily milking routine. Next to the bedroom is the large bathroom with its bath, WC, wash-hand basin and separate shower cubicle.
The cottage is centrally heated.

“This must be the most comfortable and best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in.
The spacious bathroom was a particular treat. Thank you for a most enjoyable week”.
Mr. & Mrs. C from Oxford
