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

A beautiful house, with everything you need in a lovely spot!
Myself and my family had a lovely time and the house is lovely! Very comfortable, clean and a great location.
Lovely house with all we needed in ideal location. Highly recommed.
The house is comfortable and well positioned to enjoy the lovely coastal countryside which includes sites of scientific interest (not forgetting the Lamb and Flag). All the facilities that you could reasonably expect are present in the house.
The house has everything needed for a self catering holiday. It is comfortable - good beds and settees - and a great courtyard outside to sit when warm - including bar-b-que. Good to have two bathrooms. Parking was easy and the 303 is an excellent bus service from Bridgend and further south.
Only improvement we could think of is a better or second router for the WiFi.
Sue has point about the WiFi signal being weak in parts of the house - there was no WiFi 300 years ago when the house was built! We have since purchased a WiFi Range Extender and it seems a lot better. Our children at least will be pleased next time they visit!
Great place for a holiday
Lovely cottage with good facilities in an excellent location. The welcome information was very informative. There's a really nice walk along the footpath to the beach. Overall excellent
Comfortable, large property, well equipped in a beautiful area
Grandparents, children and grandchildren spent a long weekend in this property. It was an ideal space to stay with close access to the Glamorgan Heritage Coast which is stunning and not far from the beautiful beaches of Southerndown and Ogmore by Sea. Just a little further away is Merthyr Mawr, the Sandhills and Porthcawl all of which were loved by adults and children alike. The village of Wick is lovely with two very good pubs just down the road from the house. We had an evening meal in the Star which provided good pub food, excellent service and was child friendly. We would certainly return to the house and area.
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.
