SITUATION The hamlet of Walterston is positioned within gently rolling countryside and contains a number of period houses. Although enjoying the benefits of a rural community, it is accessible to the nearby settlements of Moulton and Llancarfan and the town of Cowbridge. It is within the catchment area of the town's well regarded comprehensive schools. The historic town of Cowbridge includes a range of quality shops, restaurants, a public library, health centre, a leisure centre and various sporting clubs. The heritage coastline lies to the south and west, with its beautiful cliff top walks and mixture of sandy and stony beaches. The City of Cardiff is also within reach via the A48 road and the M4 motorway provides access to other major commercial centres in the region. There is a main-line railway station at Cardiff providing direct access to London in around two hours.

DIRECTIONS From our Cowbridge Office follow the A48 in an easterly direction towards Cardiff. Travel through Bonvilston, turning right at Sycamore Cross onto the A4226 ("Five Mile Lane") in the direction of Barry. Follow the road for close to 2 miles and turn right at the sign for Walterston. (This may involve some 'doubling back' whilst roadworks are being taken place). Follow this lane directly into the hamlet of Walterston, to find Trewallter Fawr to your left, set back behind a deep grass verge. A gated entrance leads into the yard to the side of the property, from which there is access to the property, to its gardens and to the barn.
