Tŷ Glas

about the property

Adorable Pembrokeshire Welsh holiday cottage for two in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Gorgeous interior and lakefront location, with easy access to the amazing local coastline and beaches.

  • Named in Top 50 UK cottages (The Independent) - best 'Romantic Hideaway'
  • Top 10 UK 'Wild Garden Cottages' (Guardian) 
  • Flawless review by tp 'Laura Ashley' blogger 

'A charming pale-blue period cottage surrounded by 40 acres of meadows and woods, close to the beaches and with views of Carningli. Inside wood floors, log fires, and period features including sprial stairs, a roll-top bath and a four-poster bed combine to create an idyllic hideaway.' The Independent

'Set in a bucolic spot, Tŷ Glas, a pretty pale-blue period cottage surrounded by meadows. With log fires and wood floors, it oozes simple charm.' The Observer, recommending it as the ideal location for a romantic break.

'A picture perfect rural cottage for a secluded romantic break, and you don't have to compromise on style at this idyllic Welsh getaway!' Heart Home magazine

''The cottage and barn have fires, plump pillows, period furniture and views of 347-metre tall Carningli mountain. Meadows full of orchids in spring can be seen from your window, while horses peep over the open fences. The landscaping here provides true inspiration for wild gardening.' The Guardian

Tŷ Glas is a charming and romantic period Welsh cottage set in its own wild natural gardens, it is an idyllic hide-away for two. The cottage is set in 40 acres of pastures,woodlands and lakes, with stuning views of the Carningli Mountain which guests are welcome to roam. It is located close to both Newport, Poppit and Ceibwr sands - lush countryside and golden beaches abound at Tŷ Glas - the best of both worlds!

Conservation is at the heart of this lovely cottage, renovated to reveal its old dairy, open fireplaces and natural wood flooring. Read an independent guest blog with real holiday photos from photographer Emma Bradshaw who booked Tŷ Glas together with Little Barn, next door.

All organic materials were used when renovating this pretty place, the blue lime pigment used is that similar to that used by the Brahmins in India. It has organic pastures stretching for miles around. This little place will not fail to steal your heart. Jamie Owen is a regular guest at Tŷ Glas and has written about it in his book 'Around Wales'

Wonderful stay in a peaceful environment. Loved the log fires and quiet evenings in with no distractions of WiFi and we chose not to watch TV.

Wonderful place to stay, so peaceful and timeless. The owners were very kind and helpful. Beautiful area and coast to explore. Highlight, boat trip with 'a bay to remember, highly recommended. Hope to go back again.....thank you!

Staying at Ty Glas was exceptional in every way. The owners Netti and Hugo are welcoming, friendly and interesting, their art and creative practice somehow infusing the space and the land with a special peacefulness and tranquility. The cottage is wonderful and perfectly equipped without being overly mod con-ified. I love Pembrokeshire anyway, I grew up locally, but this was easily my best stay in the area. We swam every day, shopped at Newport Market, had a pint at the Golden Lion, ate as a treat at Llys Meddyg and completely relaxed. As ever, Under The Thatch delivered a great place to stay and were very helpful during the booking process and for sorting out the ability to bring our dogs. We recommend Under The Thatch to anyone who asks and we'll continue to use you.

I don't care that it's a cliche - Ty Glas is a truly magical place. One of the most beautiful cottages we have stayed at. And we have stayed at a lot of special places. I had had my eye on this place for a while but it was always booked. Now we understand why!

We had been so looking forward to our break away, and we could not have been more delighted with the cottage and its idyllic setting. We have had such a peaceful stay and both Hugo and Netti were the perfect hosts if we needed anything. We enjoyed fantastic weather which just enhanced our stay, with the convenient location of several beaches nearby. The cottage has been renovated to a wonderful standard and was just perfect for us both and our very large dog (not sure the two ponies there have seen a dog nearing their size before!). The bedroom was vast (as was the bed!) but so cool and airy in the heat. Being able to look out upon the stars from the bedroom balcony reminded us how rural we were and why we had booked yet another UTT break. 4 nights was just simply too short and we wish we could have stayed for longer - one our favourite UTT stays so far.

The most wonderful house to stay at. Peaceful, quiet and in an idyllic location. Warm and cosy with welcoming hosts.

We had the most wonderful holiday at Ty Glas for our first wedding anniversary. The cottage is so beautiful, and the garden is a mini paradise, especially as we had a heat wave while we were there. There is plenty to do nearby including visiting villages, markets, antiques centres, beaches, having picnics, walks and just relaxing at the cottage. Really recommend this if you're looking for an escape from reality in the idyllic Welsh countryside. Neti and Hugo were lovely and very helpful hosts too.

Absolutely delightful,loved everything about Ty Glas, the best holiday cottage we have stayed in anywhere. Very comfortable and welcoming, everything one could want. Particularly loved the art work,door bolts,open fires,bathroom,bothy and dramatic bedroom. Great views of Carningli,walks in beautiful gardens and in surrounding fields. It was perfect for us and our two dogs.Beaches are nearby, one within walking distance. Neti and Hugo are most welcoming, do look at their fabulous artwork. Want to return!

Ty Glas is quite simply one of the most beautiful cottages we have ever visited. Rustic furnishings, roaring fires and a stunning rural location make this the perfect place to escape the real world. Make sure you visit Hugo and Neti in the Big Barn next door, there you will find a warm welcome and a cornucopia of curiosities. Everything about Ty Glas is perfect, you just won't want to leave.

We had a lovely stay at Ty Glas. It is really a beautiful house in a fantastic setting. Everything was exactly as it had been described. The house was cosy and comfortable. Unfortunately the owners were away so we weren't able to meet them but we had a quiet and peaceful stay and would definitely consider a return trip. Thank you so much.

A blissful week in a beautifully quirky & cosy cottage surrounded by nature with no phone signal or wifi. Spectacular coastline, ancient monuments, hills, forests & valleys on your doorstep - what else could you want!

An absolutely perfect holiday in Ty Glas! It was the second time we’ve stayed in Waun Bayvil, last time we were in the Little Barn and we liked it so much that this time we took both. Our (grown-up) daughter stayed in the little barn and we had Ty Glas. We fell into a delightful routine of breakfast in the little barn while overlooking the beautiful pond and watching the dragonflies, and supper in Ty Glas, taking full advantage of the wonderful books that Hugo and Netti share with visitors. Ty Glas is also stuffed full of their wonderful, inspiring art, and that, along with the beautiful landscape makes this place incredibly special. No internet, no phone signal, a real break. The three of us honestly couldn’t think of a single holiday we’ve enjoyed more!

Our second time visiting this wonderful, inspiring place - but this time we've swapped the Little Barn for the cottage I would happily take up residence in either, but the cottage is truly special, everything you encounter is beautiful,interesting, functional and just generally unique. We walked to the top of Carn Igli this time( you can see it from the little room by the bathroom) it was breathtaking! Thanks again Neti and Hugo. We'll be back soon!.
