Ty Tanglwyst Farm

We are family friendly with the added attraction of being a working family dairy farm, where visitor are invited to watch the cows being milked and help with feeding the young calves. We also have 25 acres of ancient woodland for walks.
We are situated 10 minutes drive away from the beaches at Porthcawl and within easy reach of the Glamorgan Heritage Coastline.
We have 4 cottages of varying size all converted from old farm buildings. A price for a cottage for a family of 4 in the summer would be from £410 for a small cottage to £680 for a more spacious one.

Wood, Garlic, Milk and Pigs.

What more do you need. Love this place, it’s called Ty Tanglwyst, (which is a mouthful even for the Welsh to pronounce!). A 4 star holiday cottages located on a farm just outside Bridgend in what is little known countryside straddling the M4 in South Wales. The cottages are traditional Welsh farm cottages with an incredible history dating back centuries. But what I really like is that this is authentic, a working farm that produces a very successful and high quality brand of milk from their herd of dairy cows which form very much part of the experience when you stay here. You can take part in the milking and also feed the young calves too. They’re great, and so are the pigs. Recently, a number of us under the guidance of Coed Cymru and the Bridgend Countryside and Tourism Unit, had the pleasure of working in the ancient woodland on site, as part of a woodland management programme. It really gives you a sense of nature and history. Its hardly surprising that some local historians claim that there was once an old medieval village on this site and even a graveyard (but that’s stretching it a bit!). When we visited, the woods were alive with wild garlic, bluebells and even a woodpecker. Returning to the farm, forget your wine, we had a milk tasting session in the courtyard!
