Ty’n Cellar Farm is an historic group of farm buildings, some dating back to the medieval period, once forming part of the Margam Abbey estate. The owners run a B&B from the farmhouse and barn, with the surrounding buildings sympathetically converted into a group of self-catering holiday cottages, situated around the farmyard. The Lodge is a more recent building, dating from the 1970s but still in keeping with the adjacent properties, attached to the rear of the owners’ farmhouse, with its own small, enclosed lawned garden.

The owners occasionally run workshops, meditation courses, wedding blessings etc in the small meeting hall opposite. They keep free range chickens, ducks and geese in the adjacent paddocks, so pets are not accepted in the cottages, but the owners do have two docile collie dogs and a cat. Animal lovers, nature lovers and birdwatchers will also enjoy the Kenfig National Nature Reserve, just minutes from the cottage.

Ty’n Cellar Farm properties are conveniently situated just off the M4, yet just 1.5 miles from the entrance to Margam Country Park with its castle, museum and orangery, as well as the Go Ape visitor attraction for more adventurous and energetic guests! The coast at Porthcawl is 5 miles, with an excellent range of traditional seaside activities and attractions; the long, sandy beach of Aberavon is 8 miles away. This is also a good location for a visit to Wales’ two primary cities: Swansea, 14 miles, with its many museums and galleries clustered around the Marina; Cardiff and Cardiff Bay, with Cathedrals, Stadia, Waterfront, museums and galleries including the Doctor Who exhibition, Cardiff Millennium Centre and much more. Excellent walking and mountain biking in the Afan Forest Park, 10 miles, along with walking trails and waterfalls in the Swansea Valley and the southern Brecon Beacons National Park, all within 30 miles.
