Recently converted into 5 star accommodation Y Golomen is one of a pair of adjoining cottages on a former farm. There are shops and places to eat drink within walking distance. The farm was at one time one of the largest in the area but now is kept as a small holding. Cardiff Wales Airport is only 5 minutes away by car making the cottage a great location to stay before or following a flight.
Barry has recently shot to fame again due to the TV series Gavin and Stacey and Barry Island is only 2.5 miles from the cottage. The town itself has plenty of places to eat, drink and shop and there is also a leisure centre and pool. Porthkerry Country Park (1.5 miles away) is a large park great for family fun, bbq’s and also has an 18 hole pitch and putt course.
The cottage is only 9 miles from Cardiff and with great road, bus and train links (Barry station being just 1.6 miles from the cottage) it is also an ideal location to stay whilst attending any sporting event in the Millennium Stadium or elsewhere in the city. Cardiff is a popular city with a huge selection of shops and restaurants. There are also many all-weather activities available including an indoor water park and olympic sized pool and the International White Water Centre. Cardiff Bay is also worth a visit and jet or pleasure boat rides can be booked from here, as can the water-taxi from and into the City centre.
The farm itself has a colourful history, dating back pre 17th Century and was once owned by Sir Williams St John who was a vice-admiral who famously captured Sir Walter Raleigh and also jailed for piracy.
Great beaches nearby, ranging from the bustling resort of Barry Island 2.5 miles, to the more peaceful and stunning beach at Southerndown 24 miles.

Lovely little cottage with a great view.Colin from Aberdeenshire - 6th February 2018
Green quiet place in the landscape, but near to the beach and to Cardiff. Visit Doctor Who Experience and Cardiff national museumKate - 6th August 2017
The property was lovely, it had everything you could want and more. The views were stunning and location was great. Barry was lovely for a day at the beach and Cardiff has a great bus tour, shopping and concerts.Julie from Worcestershire - 14th July 2017
We were on a low key holiday looking to do some walking and lazing about. This property was perfect, felt like we were away from it all in the country. It was certainly close enough to enjoy Cardiff and the local sights had we been interested. We loved walking through PorthKerry Country ParkLois from Canada - 1st June 2017
Home from home. Spotlessly clean. Made very welcome.
Tips: Walk the country park nearby. Barry is worth a visit and the Blue Anchor pub!!!Jo form Bridgnorth - 3rd May 2017
Relaxing and comfortable with lovely views.
Recommends: Walk the coastal path in the Barry area.Family from Surrey - 3rd November 2016
