The Lowdown

'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

'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. 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 steal your heart. Jamie Owen is a regular guest at Tŷ Glas and has written about it in his book 'Around Wales'

Directions

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.

ON ARRIVAL:

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).

An idyllic cottage.....

An idyllic cottage containing everything you need, plus much more. From the moment you turn off onto the track you are immersed in a magical world: 40 acres of flower meadows and woods which you can wander through via the paths cut through the long grass. The spectacular coastline is about two miles away by car. But just to remain close to the cottage is a treat in itself with its own garden area, balcony off the bedroom and 'sunroom' to watch the weather should it be bad, but we only experienced sun when we were there. The owners, Hugo and Neti, are charming hosts if anything is needed.

Stood out a mile!

After trawling through places to stay for a new year's eve getaway Nettie & Hugo's blue cottage stood out a mile. After seeing the photos (which don't do it justice) and reading the reviews, we knew it would be perfect, and it was. Beautiful inside and out! Nettie and Hugo are great hosts too and we will definitely be back!

There are places that bring language to its limits. How can one describe a place where one is astonishedly silent? Perhaps in this way, this is after all a section for comments: When one has entered the world of Netty & Hugo, one feels like Alice after she has entered the fantastic world behind the looking glass. "Oh, what fun it'll be, when they see me through the glass in here, and can't get at me!" You leave real life and enjoy the landscape, the beautifully designed garden that you can walk through at will, the birds, the bats, the horses, the flowers, the bumblebees, the view of Mount Carningli, the lovingly furnished little shop (Wunderkammer!) - and the extremely tastefully designed cottage, in which you immediately feel at home. All this is outstanding. And Netty & Hugo are enchanting, attentive, humorous and considerate hosts, always there when you need something. Nothing is missing from this Wonderland. And the nice thing is: in the real world outside this Wonderland there are also many beautiful places that can be reached very quickly. Landscape, beaches, historical places, a fabulous butcher, history and sheep. In a nutshell: marvellous. We'll be back!
