About the property

- Minimum Stay3 nights
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.

A great cottage for a group
A very nice cottage to stay in, really enjoyed the large kitchen/dinning area and the living rooms. Bedrooms are a good size, kitchen is fully equipped, towels provided for all, plenty of hot water, you can do your laundry in the washer and dryer (other VRBO's we have stayed at didn't have a dryer).
The local pubs have great character and the locals are great the chat with.
My only other comments are that other VRBO's we have stayed did include laundry and dishwasher detergent however here it not supplied so you are on your own for that. This is also a 300 year old stone cottage that we found it cool by North American standards. In spite of this we would stay here again if the opportunity presented itself.
Lovely character cottage
A lovely character cottage with spacious, comfortable accommodation that was ideal for a family get together to celebrate a 90th birthday.
Beautiful cottage & village close to great seaside & beaches
He cottage was perfect for us, close to the pub and playground for the kids, each reach of the cliff path walks & seaside, only three hour drive from London. Wales at her best
Excellent holiday accommodation at a reasonable price
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
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!
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!
