'Set in a bucolic spot, Tŷ Glas is 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
'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
Tŷ Glas is an alluring and romantic period Welsh cottage in its own wild natural gardens, it is the idyllic hide-away for two. The cottage is set in 40 odd acres of pastures,woodlands and ponds, with amazing views of the Carningli Mountain. Guests are welcome to walk there.
It is near 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 original dairy, open fireplaces and natural wood flooring.
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 steal your heart. Jamie Owen is a regular guest at Tŷ Glas and has written about it in his book 'Around Wales'

A487 past Cardigan towards Fishguard. About 2 miles after Cardigan you turn off right at CROFT onto the B4582. About three miles along there you come to a little cross roads.. Melin Farchog to the left and Moylegrove to the right. ( There is lots of blue piping on the corner of cross roads and a little cottage on the Felindre road). At this junction,turn right. The Little Barn is the first entrance about 5 hundred yards along, after a bend in the road. You now need to look for WAUNBAYVIL on the gate, (well most of it) and a green dustbin. Long track down.
If you prefer you can keep on the A487 and then turn right in Felindre Farchog to Moylegrove. Then go straight across the little cross roads at the top.
Go over the cattle grid, down a long windy track. Drive slowly as there are gulleys across the track to deviate the water in times of heavy storms. At the end of the tracks a small parking area in front of you, which accommodates two cars. On the left you will see The Little Barn and straight ahead is Ty Glas (Blue cottage) you will be able to park straight ahead (car park for two). To gain access put your finger through the hole ( under the flap) lift the latch and relax (please come to the big barn if you need any help).
Have a lovely time and please let me know if you need any further information.
