Our Inspector's view

This whitewashed inn has a picture-postcard setting in the centre of the village, next to the stream and overlooking the church. The smart terrace is ideal for alfresco dining in the summer, and in the winter, the log fires inside the pub are equally inviting. The bar and restaurant are popular not only with guests but also with the friendly locals – an ideal environment to spend a relaxing evening, sampling the local ales. Dinner, showcasing locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients, is served by the friendly team and really shouldn’t be missed. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated and well equipped for the modern guest.

About the area

Discover Vale of Glamorgan

Stretching 14 miles on the coastline of south Wales, Glamorgan Heritage Coast was one of Britain’s first designated heritage coastlines. The project, launched in 1973, covers a 14-mile stretch of coastline incorporating Porthcawl (in neighbouring Bridgend), Dunraven Park, Monknash Coast, St Donats, Summerhouse Point and the cheerful beach holiday resort of Barry Island. 

Featuring striking coastal countryside and lush green hills, the aim is to conserve the ‘unique character of its landscape and habitats’ for future generations.

Inland from here, tucked beneath the M4 and with Cardiff looming to the east, is the Vale of Glamorgan county borough – mostly known as The Vale. It’s a primarily rural and agricultural area and in 2003 – perhaps partly helped by its proximity to Cardiff – was determined to be the wealthiest area in Wales. Its main town is Barry, most famously the setting for the TV sitcom Gavin & Stacey. It’s still a popular seaside town, as is the Victorian resort of Penarth, further up the coast.
