Located in the tranquil Vale of Glamorgan with its stunning landscape and beautiful scenery of the coast and countryside, you will find the idyllic village of Bonvilston. Home of our Cottrell Gardens development, the village offers a selection of traditional pubs, a much-loved community hall and a convenient village shop. Located just a 20-minute drive from Cardiff, you have the best of both worlds: scenic rural living yet close to bustling city life.

A must for any golf enthusiasts is the 36-hole Cottrell Park Golf Resort boasting two championship designed course which can be enjoyed all year round and for golfers and non-golfers alike. The resort also currently features an outdoor marquee bar where you can grab an alfresco drink whilst you golf. For any history buffs, moments from Bonvilston you will find the National Trust owned Dyffryn House and Gardens, where you can explore 55 acres of Edwardian garden design.

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. If food is what you are seeking, take a trip out to the newly opened Forage Farm Shop, and check out their great selection of seasonal food produced locally on Penllyn Estate Farm.

The breathtaking scenery of The Vale cannot be missed. Just a short drive from Bonvilston, you will find the Glamorgan Heritage Coast boasting 14 miles of unspoilt coastline, spectacular cliffs, secluded coves and ever-changing seascapes. The renowned Wales Coast Path can be explored from Ogmore by Sea to Porthcawl and beyond, a beautiful route that takes in golden beaches, dramatic cliffs and Ogmore Castle.
