Just 5 miles from Cottrell Gardens is the vibrant market town of Cowbridge. Here, you will find a wonderful selection of independent coffee shops, restaurants, bars and pubs with offerings of the highest quality and diversity. If you are shopping for gifts, why not visit The Bay Tree, a beautiful independent florist arranging flowers for all occasions.
