Glanhafren is a wonderful well equipped property in a great location to explore this part of Wales and if you have a dog they will love the fully enclosed paddock.Mr Stephen Powney - 26th July 2017
The property is superb with lovely garden and the extra field which gives you space, views great, local walks on doorstep plus really good dog friendly pub within 5 minutes walk.Mrs Nikki Mapes - 20th June 2017
The best equipped and prepared holiday cottage we have rented. ExcellentMr Ray Lane - 6th June 2017
We stayed in Glenhafren near Bridgend. It is a lovely well equipped, and well situated cottage. Lovely touches like Easter eggs and hot cross buns awaited our arrival. The cottage was exceptionally clean and the outside garden area well kept. The paddock adjoining the property is ideal for families with a dog or children as there is plenty of space to run around in. You can see the sea from almost every window in the property and it overlooks a field where sheep roam freely - often outside the fences! The nearby Dunraven beach is a fantastic place to walk to, and also Ogmore - both within walking distance and well worth visiting. The 3 Golden Cups pub (literally just up the road) serves good food and is dog-friendly. We loved our week in this fabulous cottage, and would not hesitate to recommend it to others or to visit it again.Mrs S Aslett - 24th April 2017
Lovely entertaining space for meeting up with friends. Plenty of parking. Field good for ball games. Excellent base for walking the Wales Heritage Coast path.Mr Murray - 26th October 2016

Very well maintained property with lovely views.Ms Neal - 11th April 2016
Excellent,would book the property again.Mr Hopkins - 21st February 2016
I was so grateful for the excellent service of the team - always a prompt, efficient and friendly response to my questions. Quite the best holiday cottage any of us had stayed in, home or abroad. Stylish and warm, despite howling wind and torrential rain. Best of all, the thoughtful touches left by the owner - decorations, including a brilliant Christmas tree with parcels for each of us, Christmas crackers, wine, biscuits, milk, tea, coffee, a note for Waitrose, in case we did not arrive in time for their delivery, and so much more. Highly recommended, and well worth the drive from southwest France.Mrs Ward - 1st January 2016
Beautiful well equipped cosy comfy cottage.Mrs Davies - 30th November 2015
For dog owners the paddock was an added bonus. I would definitely recommend it to any of my friends and family.Mrs Sandham - 27th October 2015

Excellent holiday. Thoroughly recommend the cottage. Booking really easy and efficient.Mrs Wells - 4th March 2015
The property was fantastic. The location was ideal. It was very comfortable indeed. It was also very practical as I had a dog with me and the sun room / conservatory was ideal for him as it had a tiled floor. It also had a vacuum clear and equipment that allowed me to clean the property myself during the week. I'm already planning to stay there again!Miss Devereux - 12th January 2015
Beautifully appointed, warm and comfortable.Mr Murray - 3rd November 2014

We have had a fabulous week here at Glanhafren. Not only the weather but the cottage as well. There was everything we needed and more. It was so peaceful compared to home and the views are great. Ogmore beach was great for the dog (when the tide was out). We will certainly return again.Mrs Hamilton - 5th September 2014
We've had a lovely stay at Glanhafren despite the wind and rain. It has been a great place to retreat to. We have especially loved the sea views in the bedroom and kitchen - we've had some wonderful lunches here overlooking the sea! The beaches are very special around here and we'd like to come back again to enjoy them.The Peglers - 29th August 2014
We had a lovely time staying at Glanhafren. We knew it would be a beautiful place from the photos we saw beforehand but they surely do not do it justice. Absolutely beautiful, the finishing touches and little details made it feel so homely and welcoming. Such a lovely place to stay for my birthday week!Ms Golds - 2nd August 2014
Too short was our visit in this nice house and the huge garden/meadow! We, parents, grandparents and three little kids, could swim in the sea and played lots of football and frisbee. The weather was really perfect! We hope to be back for a longer stay.Mr Postma - 26th July 2014
It was lovely, and exceeded our expectations.Mr Sherry - 21st July 2014
We have really enjoyed our stay at Glanhafren. The cottage exceeded our expectations and the added bonus was the paddock where we could let our dog off the lead! We will certainly consider coming back here as it ticks all the boxes for us.Mr Shenton - 12th July 2014
Thank you for letting us stay in this fabulous cottage. It was everything we needed and more. Great sea views and the weather was amazing too. Franco's - the Italian restaurant down the road - is a must if you want great food. We will be back!Mrs Pearce - 14th June 2014
