For most people it’s going to be a standard weekend, but not for me. The sun is shining, the car is packed and I’m off to spend my anniversary weekend in a quaint cottage by the coast. As soon as my hubby gets home, we pile in the car and hit the road. Smiling away, we munch up the miles and before long we’ve arrived.
We felt a million miles from the hustle and bustle of the city, even though in reality it’s only two and a half hours from Cardiff. It had everything we wanted. In fact when I decide I’ve had enough of city life, this is the kind of place I want to live.
Located in the rural hamlet of Rogeston, Heather Cottage is one of five traditional cottages and used to be part of an original stone barn. It’s less than a five minute drive from Nolton and Druidston beach, which means it won’t take you long to reach the gorgeous Coastal Path stretching the length of the Welsh Coast. Just perfect for walkers like us!
Renovated throughout, this hidden gem really is perfect for a little romantic getaway or a gorgeous escape for one if you quite like your own company. The terrace at the front is surrounded by large shrubbery and rose bushes, so it feels lovely and secluded — perfect for a spot of breakfast or a cuppa coffee in the morning!
Stepping through the front door, we immediately felt all our stresses and strains from the working week melt away. From the wooden floors to the large country kitchen sink to the soft green cupboards and wooden beams, the open-plan lounge-come-kitchen-come-dining-room is totally beautiful and peaceful.
