  • "The property was superb with a beautiful view of the sea, well maintained and spotlessly clean."

    Mention should be made of the three toilets in the property, the downstairs one in particular was most useful as one of our party had injured his foot.

    Thank you so much for your review Michael and we are so pleased that the property exceeded your expectations! We love the sea view too :-). Best wishes, Emma Property Owner

  • "This was our second stay at Ty Glas and we loved it!"

    This time we had our 11 month old puppy with us and the house and garden were ideal for her. We were able to tuck her create into the kitchen broom cupboard so she could see what was going on but be snug at the same time. The garden was safe & secure for her and being able to walk to the beach in under 10 minutes was great. Thoroughly enjoyed the little extra touches for us and for Cleo

    Louise - thank you for your lovely comment. We love having our guests back to stay, especially when they have a 4 legged addition. We are glad to hear you had another happy stay and you are all welcome back anytime xx Property Owner

  • "The third bedroom is too small in my opinion to have a double bed ."

    It would be ok for a single bed which would allow space for some bedroom furniture . Otherwise the property was fine for us three adults.

  • "Our family was very comfortable and enjoyed their stay."

    We would go again.

  • "Emma was a fantastic host, keeping us updated at every stage of our booking and even contacted us to say we could arrive early if we liked."

    The house is lovely, clean and cared for with a welcome pack for both human and furry friends. The area is quiet and is a short walk to Ogmore beach, its a great base for exploring South Wales. Then obviously a great hot tub with stunning sea views to finish off any busy days. We loved our stay here and would definitely recommend it to anyone who ia thinking of booking. Thanks

    We had a lovely week at ty glas, the hot tub was fantastic and had some lovely warm days in the garden the cottage was very clean and comfortable the only fault was the shower cubicle flooring in the en suite was very slippy we found that it could be quite dangerous and you had to grab onto the door handle to climb in and out

    Mr Mark BainbridgeMay 2023

  • "An absolute fantastic place."

    It was extremely clean very homeley, comfortable and everything you need for the perfect home away from home. The beds are so comfortable and of the highest quality. The view from the back bedroom window is to die for. The towels were so thick and soft and of the best qualit. I can not say anything bad about the place. It was the best place I have ever stayed. Food bowls for the dog plenty of throws for the dog to sleep on, treats and poop bags. Every little thing thought about to make your holiday great. Close to pubs, shops and beaches. I would not hesitate in going again. Loved it.

    Mr Patrick ScottMar 2023

  • "We had a wonderful week’s holiday, the cottage was lovely and the views from the back garden were amazing."

    The only thing I would recommend is a place to dry your wet walking gear after a day out in the rain and mud.
