DIRECTIONS: At the traffic lights in Cowbridge turn onto the St Athan road (left coming down the hill from the A48, right coming up from town) and then immediately right on to Broadway.

There is a stone wall to the front and you can either park on the front forecourt or there is plenty of space opposite or just down the hill.
INTRODUCTION: The exact age of Broadway House is not known but it is thought it might date back to the 1700s. In the publication "Llanblethian Buildings and People" published by the Cowbridge Records Society, the house is referred to on page 90 giving the history of the house from 1840 with references made to the early 1900s and memories of "whitewashing the cistern under the back yard, which was the main source of water, blackleading the grate, baking jam turnovers in the Dutch oven in front of the fire killing two pigs a year and salting the bacon and ham, making cheese and butter" The Broadway House of today still enjoys echoes of the past is a very different property. It was bought by the present owners about ten years ago and has since been the subject of a comprehensive refurbishment, renovation and extension to create the lovely family house of today. There is a great feeling of space and light created by the combination of lots of windows, plain coloured walls and extensive use of Travertine and marble floors. First impressions from outside suggest that this is a property of cottage proportions, with Welsh slate roof to front, will soon be changed when you walk through the inside and find five bedrooms, three bathrooms, three good size living rooms with a reception area in the hall, cloakroom and stunning handbuilt kitchen. The property enjoys the benefit of full mains gas fired central heating and double glazing. There is a flagstone courtyard to the front creating plenty of parking space leading to the detached stone garage with useful space over. There is a pretty garden to the west side of the house enjoying a southerly aspect.
