“Perfect grand design stay”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We loved the house, the garden and the surroundings. The hot tub is excellent after a hard days walk. Two good pubs within 200meters of the house.

Well worth doing the 12 mile walk around the Llangorse lake. Although other shorter options available.

Best to do an online shop for your stay as nearest proper shop in Aberystwyth. Spice cupboard well stocked for curry enthusiasts. Also loved using fresh herbs from garden.

Only negative side is that house gets hot during very sunny days. But you expect this with glass.

Will be visiting again.

“Amazing and more”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed here in April and its so stunning we booked up for new year. The owner Deri is helpful and the house is a credit to him. Each stay has been very relaxing there is nothing that's not thought of the house is incredible, we even had a fully lit Christmas tree. Total luxury, didn't want to review too soon as its one of the best places I've ever stayed so wanted to keep the house to myself it's heaven!

“This house is fabulous and the owners equally terrific.”
Reviewed May 2, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We were delighted by how comfortable, spacious, well appointed and perfect this house was. We've rented a lot of vacation homes and I've never raved about one this way. The house had everything we needed (and the wif-fi was perfect!). We could not have asked for friendlier and more welcoming owners.

“idyllic location, fabulous house superbly equipped”
Reviewed March 11, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Rented the Glass House (Ty Gwydyr) to celebrate hubby's 60th Birthday with our family. House is amazing, finished to a high standard, fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. View from the garden is superb, very peaceful and quiet. Weather was fabulous and we made full use of the Hot tub. Would definately hire this house again and would recommend it to anyone

“Contemporary meets classical - a truly spectacular property”
Reviewed September 20, 2011 for a stay in November 2010

I have stayed at Ty Gwydr several times now, and each time has been more lovely than the last. If you can tear your eyes away from the superbly designed property, the surrounding scenery is breathtaking come rain or shine.

The kitchen is great to cook in, with plenty of space to prepare even the most extravagant roast, and the table extends to comfortably seat a large group of people. To top it all off, the floor tiles are heated throughout the main reception room, which makes winter breaks extremely cosy.

The hot tub is substanstial, and is a great way to unwind after a hard day's ramble. The high-surrounding wall gives both privacy and soundproofing.

In terms of location, there are a number of beautiful walks close to the house down to the lake, and lots of mountains within easy driving distance for the more adventurous.

All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable place to stay. I could not recommend it enough.
