An idyllic, thatched country cottage, dating back to circa 17th century and listed as one of Vale of Glamorgan\'s County Treasures. The Grade II listed property sits in a prominent position within the popular village of Gileston. Currently in use as holiday cottage accommodation, and earning a staggering 10% return on investment, the property is vastly adaptable as both a home and business opportunity. Within the curtilage of the property are two residences; Rose Cottage, a quaint 3 bedroom detached, thatched cottage, and The Hay Loft, a one bedroom detached annexe perfect as teenage or guest accommodation.

The accommodation to Rose Cottage, found in immaculate condition and thoroughly in keeping with the traditions of the building, briefly comprise; entrance hall, living room, dining room, kitchen and WC to the ground floor with stone stairs leading up to three bedrooms and a family bathroom. To The Hay loft there is an open plan living area through to kitchenette and shower room, with mezzanine bedroom above. The gardens and grounds have been maintained to a wonderful standard and planted with mature shrubbery, whilst some areas have been laid to wildflowers. A gated entrance offers plenty of off road parking and access to both cottage and hay loft.
