We used Ty Maen as a base to visit family in Bridgend. The house was very convenient when travelling off the M4. McArthur Glen shopping centre is nearby, also worth a visit is Bryngarw Park, which is only a few miles away. The house itself is spotless, lovely bathroom and a nice big, comfortable bed. Unfortunately, we could not make use of the patio and garden as the weather was bad, but it would be a lovely private area on a nice day. The welcome pack was lovely, and fresh flowers on the table were a nice touch. I would not hesitate to use Ty Maen again and would gladly recommend.

We read reviews about this cottage and we’re looking forward to going.. The cottage exceeded all expectations and been improved from your original pictures. Our cottage was immaculately clean and tidy and was in a great location. There was even a horse at the grounds and our son really enjoyed him visiting at the garden. The cottage is in a great location and we found we were about a 20 minute drive from most places and so this was an ideal place to explore South Wales.

Stayed for a week when the welsh lockdown started to lift. The property is very well presented. The decor and furniture is very good and it has everything that you need for a comfortable stay. The welcome pack is very good and has everything that you need to get you started food wise. ALL in all and very enjoyable stay. It is a good base for south wales.

Early in the year I booked four cottages at separate times via yourselves.. I have only given you a mark of 5 out of 10 because I have been inundated with adverts for Sykes Cottages on my computer. This is very annoying. Why you think you need to advertise yourselves after I booked 4 cottages I do not understand. I have already warned my friends of this downside.

Excellent, first class accommodation.. Everything necessary to make our stay enjoyable was provided in this home from home cottage. The welcome basket was much appreciated. We've stayed here previously about 3 years ago and will no doubt look to stay again in the future. Definitely recommended.

Absolutely lovely cottage, the pictures don't do it justice.. The owners are lovely people, very welcoming. On arrival you have a welcome hamper waiting with milk, bread, tea, coffee, sugar, bacon, eggs etc and we had lovely little cakes too. The family horse Ron is adorable too and loves an apple off you. We will definitely be returning and recommend this place to all. Thanks for our wonderful stay.

We had a fantastic long weekend away in this beautiful cottage.. The welcome treats on arrival were very much appreciated and the standard of the cottage was just incredible - it exceeded all my expectations! Pub down the road does amazing food, large portions for very reasonable prices. Only a short drive to Bridgend if you’re looking for something more! Looking forward to planning a return visit to do more exploring of South Wales! Thanks for having us :) Beth and Jake, North Northumberland

This was are 2nd visit to this property and it was just as good this time.. when you arrive the lights are on it's warm, there a welcome basket, homemade cake (this time Welsh Cakes) which were delicious. I think it's the little touches which makes it so welcoming like the fluffy dressing gons. large soft towels, we are hoping to return next year may be in thew spring as there is lots to do in the area from waling and cycling to going to the coast which was also very enjoyable Are thanks to Rob and Linda for sharing the lovely cottage with other Nigel and Wendy Miller

We have used your company many times and have never been disappointed.. When you are trying to arrange things from overseas and have little or no knowledge of the places you are going to visit, it is a comfort to know that your accommodation is going to be comfortable and safe. We have that trust in Sykes. Keep up the good work. Richard from Canada

Great location for exploring seaside, countryside or local cultural interests.. Easy access M4 and nearby Cardiff and Swansea. The cottage was immaculate and awaiting us was a very handy welcome basket of goodies, such as bread, bacon, eggs, butter, tea and coffee- not forgetting the Welsh Cakes. Mrs Vicker has thought of everything to make her guests’ stay as comfortable as possible in her pleasant and peaceful cottage. Sykes Cottages gave accurate and explicit details of the cottage and directions to Ty Maen. Final payment was made easy, by a reminder a few days before due and they automatically requested the due amount from my bank on the correct date. All in all a great time was had by me and my two young grandchildren.
Mr West
July 2018
An excellent, clean cottage and a warm welcome.. Very good welcome hamper and would be a place we would recommend. The owner has made great efforts to make visitors feel at home with a comfortable bed, attractive mood lighting and fresh decor. Only one small item, some better lighting in the lounge for reading during the evening, could make this an even better cottage.
Mr Krarup

Mr and Mrs Vickers gave us a very warm welcome, and were very friendly and obliging.. The cottage is very cosy, and we would thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting South Wales.

Mr Wetherill, February 2017
October 2016
The facility was very well maintained.. Exceeded expectations for location and ease of checking in and out. Instructions were clearly laid out in the book and the welcome basket was very thoughtful. The only comment I would give is that the stove did not have any markings on it to identify which burner was being turned on, it looked as though they had been cleaned off. A small thing, but would have been very useful to know which burner would turn on and which was high and low setting. Luckily this is a WiFi location and I was able to google the stove for the information needed. Will definitely book this home next year if available when our plans are made.
Mr Waterman, October 2016

Ty Maen is excellent - well designed, well furnished and maintained. The owner is always on hand should there be a problem, but not interfering if not required. A great holiday home for a couple or couple with a child.

The house was absolutely spotless, simply but nicely decorated and is more than equipped enough for your stay. In a very convenient location - a 2 minute drive to a retail park, supermarkets etc. And is very close to motorway access. Don't let this lead you to believe you're staying in a busy location, the house itself is nicely settled out of the way and is perfectly silent and dark at night so there is nothing to disturb you from a solid nights sleep. You'll even catch a glimpse out the windows of some foxes and rabbits roaming the surrounding horse's field.

The accommodation was of such a high standard. The owner and her husband were friendly whenever we saw them, but did not interrupt the holiday. The area is amazing and had easy access to most places along the coast. It was close to eating places, shopping and food shopping. This has been the best accommodation we have ever used and if we go into this area again I would re book.

The owners are the most fantastic hosts you could ever ask for. They were very friendly, polite and were on-hand when we needed them. The property itself is extremely well looked after in every detail. We spent 7 days over the Xmas period at the property. We just wanted a beautiful home away from home to be together as a family and this was just perfect. Property is well situated to visit the surrounding areas. We cannot praise the property enough. Thank you to the owners, you gave us the perfect break.

We had a wonderful stay in this perfect little annex. The owners to great pride in its presentation and were so welcoming. They also gave you a lot of privacy as it has been cleverly designed to be sepereate from the main house. It was the perfect location to access many beautiful areas in Wales as we were able to visit Cardiff, Swansea bay, brecan beacons and Porthcawl beach by car. I would highly recommend staying here!
