    Just Wonderful!

    Oh my goodness what an amazing place! I loved it here and so did my 78 year old mother. We were both so sad to leave. The whole place is delightful and beautifully done and thought out. The garden made our dog so happy! He was ecstatic! And the horses in the field divine and the exercising of them in the morning in the fields nearby lovely to watch and hear. This was by far the best place on VRBO I’ve ever stayed! 11 out of 10 and if you want peace and tranquillity and space, which I yearn for - this is for you!

    Wonderful Break

    This property really allowed us to relax. It really is secluded. A lot say they are and then when you get there you find you are attached to another cottage. Our dogs can be yappy around other big dogs but we could relax as there was nobody they could annoy. We all enjoyed the big garden and having all that outdoor enclosed space knowing they couldn't get out. We had a lovely welcome from Jane who was there when we arrived and her Welsh cakes are amazing! The barn is so clean and welcoming. I always worry about the cleanliness when I go away but I needn't have worried, I could relax and Jane had thought of everything you might need. It was homely too with all little touches. We enjoyed watching the horses exercising each morning and we would definitely go back....perhaps in the winter next time as the log burner looked cosy. Thank you Jane for making this available for people wanting to escape every day life/stresses.

    If you’re looking for a short get-away to Wales with friends or family look no up to date we’ll kept barn with a stunning view in the middle of shopping centres and Barry island. The barn is spotless and has everything you might need on your trip, including a massive garden space for outdoor activities. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.

    Easter Break

    "The Gallops" location is ideal for Cardiff and Barry island visits... Nicely decorated and maintained, great outdoor space for all and fantastic views at the back. True countryside life, atmosphere, and tranquility with major city amenities just a short drive away; remote without truly being remote. Owner just a walking distance away but very discreet, hospitable and available to the guests needs, provided a welcome packs (Milk, mini-cereals packets, bread, homemade wales cakes) which was very kind and nice of her. We definitely will book again and recommend it. J

    Perfect Retreat, Perfect Break!

    This was our first time visiting 'The Gallops' and it certainly won't be our last! The break was absolutely perfect, a wonderful property in a fabulous location. We always seek as much peace and quiet as possible, and The Gallops certainly provides was amazing to be able to sit in the garden with our two dogs and hear only the birds chirping and the horses and cows in the neighbouring field chewing! The cottage itself is a beautiful space, with everything you need, and the Wi-Fi was essential as we did have to work while away. Jane, the owner, is delightful and has provided a wonderful retreat which very much feels a 'home from home'. We genuinely did not want to leave...counting the days now until we return.

    What an amazing place 'The Gallops' is. We were very impressed upon on arrival - not only was the cottage beautifully furnished but the homemade Welsh cakes and breakfast basket was such a thoughtful touch. We have really enjoyed our stay here - the children enjoyed the spacious garden, watching the horses and sleeping in the bunk beds! It has been the perfect home from home and we were sad to leave. Jane, thank you for being such a welcoming and friendly hostess. We look forward to staying again.

    Fantastic property and a nice relaxing stay.

    My wife and I (and our 2 dogs) stayed here for our wedding anniversary. We wanted to get away and totally relax and that is what we got at the Gallup's! Property is finished to a high standard and is very clean. The paddock was great for our dogs and our morning yoga. Lots of peace and quiet and the horses in the neighbouring field would come and say hello each day. Jane was a great host and was there if needed but did not intrude at all. Her home made Welsh cakes were a nice touch. We plan to return in the future! Highly recommended.

    The barn is amazing with beautiful views

    I rented this barn as somewhere for me and my bridal party to get ready the day of my wedding. The barn was big enough to accommodate us and the views were amazing. We also had the sunshine for the whole weekend.

    Lovely place

    We had a lovely stay at the gallops. The house was well equipped with everything you might need including high chair, travel cot and children’s toys and games. The log fire made the house lovely and cosey when the wind was howling. The location is great and is ideally placed to visit much that South Wales as to offer.
