Holiday Cottage by the sea in

South Wales

With an enclosed garden, which backs on to the dunes, this two bedroom terraced house is ideally situated for the active seeking adventure or those wishing to relax and enjoy a peaceful break.  Tegeirian is a holiday cottage in the village of Newton, near Porthcawl, set in Newton Burrows sand dunes which lead to Newton Beach and the Merthyr Mawr Nature reserve.  This unique ecosystem of sand dunes stretches for over 840 acres. From the beach there are fantastic panoramic views to Ogmore and across to Devon. The All Wales Coastal Path runs nearby making it an easy walk to Porthcawl Marina and seafront where there are a wide variety of places to eat out. The historic village of Newton, five minutes walk away, with its tales and legends of smugglers is centred round a twelfth century Church.  Beside the church and village green is a children’s playpark and two popular village pubs. A further three minutes walking leads to two of the three, small, but well stocked, convenience stores and a post office. Indoor swimming pool, leisure and sports activities are also within walking distance .

The house is called Tegeirian (Welsh for orchid) as the nearby Kenfig National Nature Reserve is home to the rare fen orchid and one of the last places in the UK where the dune form grows.

Tegeirian is a mid-link house set on a quiet residential street backing on to extensive sand dunes and Newton Beach. Within walking distance are several other beaches, pubs, convenience stores, the Grand Pavilion, marina, breakwater, promenade and fun fair. All weather attractions include a swimming pool, water park and activity centre. 

Merthyr Mawr Sand Dunes are a huge network of dunes stretching past Porthcawl and across to the Kenfig National Nature Reserve. At one time this was the largest sand dune system in Europe. The dunes are very popular with walkers,families,runners and local wildlife enthusiasts. Scenes from several famous films were shot here and several elite athletes have used them to train including Steve Ovett in the run up to his gold medal at the 1980 Olympics.

Across the Borough is the Bridgend Designer Outlet for some shopping therapy, Odeon Cinema Complex and Ewenny Craft Centre. Being only a short drive away from Cardiff and Swansea there are also plenty of shopping opportunities and large sporting or musical events are easily accessible. With the Gower Peninsula and the mountains and valleys of South Wales all close by, the only problem will be agreeing where to go first.
