A fantastic detached property, ideal for large families and groups, perfect for a memorable get-together in this relaxing yet fun environment with lots interesting artwork and activities within easy reach.

Once a Methodist church, this truly unique property is now a stunningly quirky base for memorable get-togethers with family or friends.

Fantastic place for adult groups into the sports that are available in the local area. Not ideal for families with young children or dogs as directly onto a main road. Location quite isolated with not much in the immediate location. Good base from which to travel around the rest of South Wales if you're up for driving.

We had a fantastic time at depot rd. The house is perfect for 12 people who can enjoy the meal together at the large table at the same time which you not always get with other cottages. Three specious and quiet en-suite bedrooms provide a sense of privacy but the best part was the drying room where all your kit can be cleaned and dried overnight whRead moreich is a huge bonus for active people.

The property is clean and spacious with well equipped kitchen, however the location is not ideal. The area is run down and definitely not a holiday location I would not return for this reason.

We had a great week, the layout works really well. Comfortable beds and good showers. A lovely property but more aimed at groups rather than a dog friendly family holiday. The main outside space is accessed only via bedrooms which the dogs are not allowed in. Great location for mountain biking & walking but not a tourist area as such

A large living and kitchen area, ample for 6 adults and 5 kids, and 3 dogs, plus 3 good bedrooms with private toilet and shower, just excellent lay out and space, just what we wanted. As a base there is a lot nearby with just a short journey, and the local shops were very convenient and ample for day to day needs.
