The Cheese Huse at Gileston Manor

The Cheese House

This quirky cottage with beautiful sea views from the first floor, offers everything you want for a family stay on a country estate. Perfect for Families & Friends

SLEEPS 4 – BEDS 1 x King size, 2 x Single

The Cheese is unique and overflows with character. From the roses that frame the front door, to the original 18th-century cheese press, to the views of Glamorgan’s Heritage Coast from the first floor, there is always something to catch your eye. Beautifully furnished, the cottage is perfect for a family of four to enjoy a luxurious escape to the country. Outside you can enjoy picnics in the estate’s gardens or visit the resident alpacas. Meanwhile, days out can be enjoyed at local beaches, the Wales Coastal Path and the historic town of Cowbridge.


Set out over two floors and blending original features such as exposed wooden beams with modern touches, this cottage is a fantastic home-from-home for a family holiday.

The living area is an open-plan but separated into zones. Amongst the original features in this space is the 18th-century cheese press.

The comfy lounge area has sofa seating, an armchair and a bench with scatter cushions, making it perfect for getting cosy for an evening of playing games or watching television. Next to the lounge is the dining area with table and chairs for four.

The kitchen is at the front of the cottage and overlooks the estate’s pretty inner courtyard and rose walk. It was hand crafted from trees that were felled on the estate and is equipped with a standard electric oven/grill, a four-ring electric hob, a microwave, a fridge, a toaster and a kettle.

Upstairs, you’ll discover views of the sea in the distance, as well as the two bedrooms. The first bedroom has a king-size bed, featuring an oversized headboard which cleverly conceals the en-suite shower room. The second bedroom is a twin room, with two single beds accessed via a small set of wooden steps, with a private shower room next door.

You will also have access to a separate shared laundry room with a washing machine, iron and ironing board situated in the outer courtyard. Meanwhile, the estate’s 9 acres of gardens and grounds are perfect for a quiet stroll, a picnic or admiring the sunset over the sea in the distance.
