Gileston, Vale of Glamorgan, Southern Wales, Wales
The Hay Loft is designed with relaxation in mind. You will find it nestled within a pretty hamlet on the Vale of Glamorgan coast. Set within the grounds of a historic 17th century thatched cottage you are also only a stone's throw from the beach.<BR><BR>Think exposed stonework and lime washed walls.The design is inspired by Farrow and Ball colours, our travels in France and complimented by hand-picked funky designer furniture and fabrics.<BR><BR>If you're looking for something different - off the beaten track, yet within 25 minutes of Cardiff - then you may well have found the perfect escape.
