“Great house in a great location”
Reviewed 23 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Nice spacious house with all the necessary equipment needed. In a very convenient location, about 5 minutes cycle from the Afan forest park trail centre. Patio area with a view over the hills. Friendly and helpful service from start to end, and very flexible booking process. It worked really well for 7 people for a weekend of mountain biking.

“Great base for Afan Forest”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Ty Skyline is a great base for mountain biking at Afan Forest being only a few minutes away from the Glyncorrwg trail head and a secure bike lock up. The house was clean and tidy when we arrived and the kitchen is well stocked, even some local beers available from the honesty bar! All bedding and towels were provided and the welcome pack contains lots of information making for a really easy stay. Only downside was there is just one (slightly dated) bathroom, we didn't have a problem as there was only two of us but bear it in mind if booking for a big group. Definitely recommended as a place to stay!

“We found a little Home from home.”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

If you want Clubbing and partying this isnt for you. If you want Quiet, relaxing self catering with access to some of the most stunning Walks and Mountain Biking around then this is the place for you. I was looking for an overnight stay for my family of 6 for the night before a wedding and luckily picked this up on Trip Advisor. The owners are unbelievably helpful and when you walk in the door there is a pack with all the details on the surrounding areas. A little terraced house extends backwards to be suprisingly spacious and has Space enough easily for 8 and probably more as there seem to be sofa beds everywhere. The best way to describe our view of it is "We are already looking at booking to go back for a walking and mountain biking holiday as a Family and I will happily recommend it to any of our friends going to the area!"

“Fantastic location for mountain biking in South Wales”
Reviewed 1 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Ty Skyline House is a perfect location to use as a base for mountain biking in South Wales, particularly for Afan Forest - you can ride to the Glyncorrwg centre in one minute from the house!

A lot of thought has clearly gone in to kitting the house out with bikers in mind, and the secure garage (with bike tools included!) was most useful.

We will definitely be returning to Ty Skyline House again soon!

“Fantastic accommodation, very MTB friendly.”

This accommodation is a real treat for mountain bikers. Gareth and Mike have done a great job in providing all the facilities you could need for a week or weekends riding. The house is warm dry and very comfortable. Its also only 5 mins from the trails and the Glyncorrwg visitors centre. Don't settle for less!

“Perfect Bolt Hole”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We live in Surrey but know the village well and needed somewhere to stay at the last minute for a familiy event. TY Skyline was perfect for our needs; it is well equipped, very clean and in a convenient corner of the village.
Although none of our party were mountain biking or hiking this time round, we have done so in the past and the cottage is perfect for this too - with close access to the mountain biking centre and bike storage available.
A BIG thanks to the owners for beig so flexible and helping us out with our booking at the very last minute :)
