Property type cottage

About the property

A traditional oak-beamed cottage, in parts dating back 300 years, in a rural village setting, sleeping up to eight people in four bedrooms. The accommodation also comprises two bathrooms, two reception rooms (including one with an open fire), a kitchen with large dining area, a downstairs cloakroom and two charming courtyard gardens, including one with a gas BBQ. Set in the beautiful and historic Vale of Glamorgan, Ty Gwyn is in the heart of the village of Wick, with its medieval church, village shop, post office, village green and its two traditional country public houses. The cottage is close to the Glamorgan Heritage Coastline (a stunning section of the Welsh Coast Path), beaches and other activities. Cowbridge, an attractive market town, is a ten-minute drive away, with the historic town of Llantwit Major being only a five-minute drive. The house is within walking distance of the coastal path and is in a great location to participate in a range of activities, including horse riding, mountain biking, walking, cycling and surfing, with the sandy beaches at Southerndown, Llantwit Major and Ogmore only a short drive away; there are four golf courses within a 15-minute drive. Further afield, there are easy routes to Swansea and the Gower Peninsular, Cardiff and the south Wales valleys. The house is fully equipped to modern standards and is ideal for families wanting either a quite break or an activity-based holiday. Only fifteen minutes from the M4 and easy access via the main rail line into south Wales; Wick is also served by regular buses which run via the coastal villages to Bridgend, Barry and Cardiff.

About Mr Huw Daniel

Huw grew up in a coal-mining valley north of Port Talbot but also knew the Vale area well. So when the opportunity came to purchase a second home in the area, we jumped at the chance to spend more time in such a beautiful and unspoilt area of South Wales. We have three children and live and work in Greater London but going to Ty Gwyn as often as we can.

Mr Huw Daniel purchased this cottage in 2016

Excellent holiday accommodation at a reasonable price

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfortable, roomy, well-equipped house located in a pleasant little village in quiet countryside near the sea. It represents very good value for money and can easily accommodate a large group of people. The owner's instructions are clear and helpful, and we found everything to be just as expected.

Comfortable cottage in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this charming cottage. The location is ideal for exploring the area and there is a green along the road with play equipment and space for a kick about. The kitchen and utility area were well equipped with fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is some off street parking but we parked our 2 cars on the road.

Highly recommend this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Ty Gwyn is a lovely old Welsh cottage with modern conveniences. It has been beautifully restored, and furnished with comfortable beds and a warm and inviting living and kitchen area. From the moment we arrived, the Wick community embraced us. Wick became our home away from home. We would definitely stay there again!

Spacious comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We came for a family celebration. Our family loved Ty Gywn. Grandson said it was the best house he'd ever been in!! As previous reviews, very well equipped and comfortable. Managed to sit out in the larger courtyard one afternoon. Storm Gert put paid to any other opportunities. Lamb and Flag is superb, highly recommended. We thought the beach at Ogmore on Sea was the best. Easily accessed for those maybe not so spry as they once were!

All in all a great stay.

Perfect space for a large family/group

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Wick. The house was clean, spacious and comfortable. The local pub was great, really friendly, they had gluten free and veggie options. The nearest beach (Southerndown) was amazing, the sea was really wild and we found some fossils. The kids loved visiting Barry Island and Porthcawl. Phone/internet reception was poor in the village (typical for South Wales), we should have planned more prior to visit.
