About Jane White
We live in Llanbethery which us a couple of minutes away from the barn so always on hand if needed. We love the countryside and area we live in. We both work locally and have 2 children and daughter aged 21 and a son of 17.
Why Jane White chose Barry
We have spent a year converting the 200 year old barn taking a lot of care and attention to detail creating a property that we love and I know you will too.
What makes this Cottage unique
Amazing views. Wood burner We care for the environment, the electricity is supplied by Solar and the water is from a Bore hole.

This property really allowed us to relax. It really is secluded. A lot say they are and then when you get there you find you are attached to another cottage. Our dogs can be yappy around other big dogs but we could relax as there was nobody they could annoy. We all enjoyed the big garden and having all that outdoor enclosed space knowing they couldn't get out. We had a lovely welcome from Jane who was there when we arrived and her Welsh cakes are amazing! The barn is so clean and welcoming. I always worry about the cleanliness when I go away but I needn't have worried, I could relax and Jane had thought of everything you might need. It was homely too with all little touches. We enjoyed watching the horses exercising each morning and we would definitely go back....perhaps in the winter next time as the log burner looked cosy. Thank you Jane for making this available for people wanting to escape every day life/stresses.
If you’re looking for a short get-away to Wales with friends or family look no further...an up to date we’ll kept barn with a stunning view in the middle of shopping centres and Barry island. The barn is spotless and has everything you might need on your trip, including a massive garden space for outdoor activities. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.
Thank you for you review it was a pleasure to have you to stay glad you enjoyed yourselves.
"The Gallops" location is ideal for Cardiff and Barry island visits... Nicely decorated and maintained, great outdoor space for all and fantastic views at the back.
True countryside life, atmosphere, and tranquility with major city amenities just a short drive away; remote without truly being remote.
Owner just a walking distance away but very discreet, hospitable and available to the guests needs, provided a welcome packs (Milk, mini-cereals packets, bread, homemade wales cakes) which was very kind and nice of her.
We definitely will book again and recommend it.
The Gallops is one of the best holiday rentals we have ever stayed in. The setting was idyllic with lovely views towards the sea and a sunny and very large back lawn which our grandson enjoyed playing in. It was also brilliant for our early Easter egg hunt. The accommodation was immaculate and very well equipped. We were four adults, one six year old and two babies and we found the accommodation served us well. Lots of storage and good sized bedrooms. The balconies were a bonus and added to the enjoyment of the property. It was lovely to have two bathrooms, a downstairs cloakroom plus a utility room. A home from home. Another joy was seeing the lovely racehorses on their daily exercise which my six year old grandson plus the adults all found fascinating to watch. Jane and Les the owners are very friendly and helpful and offered advice whenever needed.
We enjoyed a wonderful four night stay and would not hesitate to return as it is a stunning area of Wales with easy access to beaches, countryside pursuits and the city of Cardiff all within an easy drive. We could not fault it.
Lovely converted barn with great accommodation and in a lovely peaceful setting
Jane and Les were very helpful and friendly.
The barn was ideal for our stay with six adults and three large dogs. The facilities are excellent and the area outside was great to let the dogs run around in a safe fenced in area
Would we go again ,yes
Beautiful property, couldn't have asked for more.
The cottage was immaculately clean, warm, comfortable, peaceful and has everything you could need. Jane made us feel so welcome when we arrived. The garden was huge and perfectly safe and secure for our dog to have the best time watching the horses go by. We had a lovely stay, it's perfectly situated for lots of long beach walks, great pub dinners and then back for a cosy evening in front of the woodburner, cant wait to go back.
Thank you for your review it was a pleasure to have you to stay and glad you enjoyed the property and area. Look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
