Property code: 74236

Superb detached house overlooking the South Wales coast, just yards from the popular beach itself, with everything you need on your doorstep, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a break any time of year.

Set in the simply splendid coastal village of Ogmore-by-Sea, lying between Southerndown and Porthcawl in the Vale of Glamorgan. This lesser-known village has a super beach, which is just yards from the property, enjoyed throughout the year by both families and surfers alike. There is a very popular cafe just along the road and a craft shop too. The coastal path offers breath-taking scenery in either direction. Visit Ogmore Castle a 2 mile drive or walk way, or perhaps visit the remains of Dunraven Castle and the walled garden in Southerndown. For the discerning shopper, Cowbridge is a short drive with a range of independent shops and Cardiff city is slightly further afield. (Please check admittance for the various attractions).

Laid across three floors to make the most of the wonderful sea views, you enter the hallway on the ground floor. On the ground floor there is a single bedroom with additional single pull-out bed and a bathroom with shower over bath and WC and a separate WC. There is also a second lounge with TV/DVD with fabulous sea views. Head down a half flight of open tread stairs to the main lounge, set on the lower ground floor. This super space has comfortable sofas, an open fire and stunning sea and beach views. The perfect spot to relax and unwind after a day of exploring. Head across the small hallway to the kitchen, which again has great coastal views along with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. There is also a utility room with washing machine and fridge/freezer, that is also handy for keeping any surfing equipment tucked away. From the kitchen you can head through to the dining room which has floor to ceiling views and doors to the outside, so you can let the outside in during those warmer months. Back up the stairs to the ground floor and up an additional flight to the first floor, is where you will find the three further bedrooms, two doubles, and a further single bedroom, also with an additional single pull-out bed, all with excellent sea views.

Heading outside to rear of the property,  there is an enclosed patio and decked area with panoramic sea views, there perfect spot to enjoy the evening sun. There is off-road parking for two cars on the driveway.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Perfect location with wonderful views. Everything you need in a holiday home provided. It even had a desk, which was very useful for me as I was working remotely whilst staying here. We were very lucky with the weather at this time of year. It was glorious! were able to sit on the deck listening to the sea and watching the amazing sunsets! If youreRead more a yoga lover the deck would be perfect for this too. Will definitely be booking again. Hide

I loved this house. I loved the different rooms, the location, the views.everything .. The stairs were one of my favourite things but perhaps not so suitable for very young or elderly.. The sunsets are amazing. The caretakers were so helpful. I hope to return next year.

We were a family of six with three generations. Large house, three levels, two half flights of stairs. Good storage. Large kitchen, plenty of equipment. Everything you need will be in there, you just have to look for it. Two lounges, comfy settees. Lots of quirky items and artwork. Lovely views and sunsets from the patio. Walk to the beach about 5-Read more10 mins, lovely beach with rockpools but a drag carrying everything back up after. Wonderful house as long as you're not a minimalist!! Hide

Beautifully positioned property with wonderful views. House could do with some decluttering and modernising, but wouldnt stop us booking again! We enjoyed having no TV in the lounge, but the kids were glad to have one in the second lounge! Stairs we not an issue. Plenty of space throughout the property.

A spacious but very dated and old fashioned property. Great location for the beach albeit very, very windy most of the time! Garden isnt enclosed as advertised so not good for dogs as leads onto a main road. Needs to be de cluttered and decorated.

Property was lovely, nothing was too much trouble for the caretaker. Views were as pictures on web. The road below the house could be a bit noisy at times and it was a quite a walk to get to the Actual waters edge when the tide was out, children enjoyed exploring the beaches.
