Cottages was exactly as described on website. Kitchen extremely well equipped. Added luxury is the Rayburn, keeping the whole house warm and cosy. Especially important when guests are coming in from the beach, cold and wet. Lounge area with log burner also very comfortable.I particularly enjoyed reading about the history of the cottage and its surroundings.

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback, and happy to hear it was such a lovely stay! The Rayburn is always such a homely feature here, especially when it starts getting colder... Which doesn't take much in Britain! Thank you for the 5 stars.

Very clean and well-equipped. Loved the Rayburn. Shame no welcome pack, understandable but a bottle of wine could have been left for 72 hours. Suggestion that a contrast colour - painted tiles? Would have been useful to highlight the step down from the kitchen to the dining room, as it was difficult to see. Idyllic setting and we really enjoyed the week away.

Ty Gwyn is the house with the most character we've stayed at and by far the best location.

14th May 2013

Beautiful location, and we loved the history of the house. Lovely, thanks.

14th May 2013

Excellent position close to the beach and coastal walks… nice views from the windows. Saw the ponies at St David's Head and toasted marshmallows. Ideal position for visiting resorts north and south, which we did on a few occasions. All in all the family had a lovely holiday. Will recommend to family and friends!

14th May 2013

This is our second visit to Ty Gwyn, and we are still in agreement that this is a very charming house in a stunning location. Thank you.

Our family has been coming on holiday to Whitesands for over 50 years. It was our first time at Ty Gwyn, and we have had a fantastic time… We've enjoyed surfing and walks to St David's Head to watch the sunset. The house has been wonderful – cosy and full of character. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves has been a real break. Thank you for sharing your magical house with us.
