Traditional miner’s cottage offering five-star accommodation for two guests: an idyllic romantic retreat in the South Wales village of Bryncethin, situated between the cities of Swansea and Cardiff.
Set in a village location, just 3 miles from the town of Bridgend in South Wales, this charming property, sleeping two humans and one pooch, places you and your pack in splendour. Within easy reach of scenic walks through beautiful landscapes, the golden dunes at Merthyr Mawr, and the woodland, meadow and riverbank trails of Bryngarw Country Park, it’s just idyllic.
A gate from the pavement leads you to the front door of this charming cottage, and directly into the welcoming lounge/diner. Tastefully finished, the chic living space is a welcome retreat after a day spent sniffing out adventure, with a well-equipped kitchen enabling you to prepare anything from a snack to a feast. On warmer evenings the property’s private enclosed garden beckons, with a raised decking area for intimate al fresco dining and a lawned area for your four-legged friends. As night falls, a king-size bed under exposed beams awaits weary heads, or you might prefer to stay up a little longer and enjoy the local pub, under 1 mile from your door.
Set on the edge of the villages of Bryncethin and Sarn, all of your essential amenities are within 0.5 mile, including a local supermarket, cafe and a grooming parlour for pampered pooches. There are also plenty of great walks, with the 3-mile-long ridge of Cefn Hirgoed offering an elevated walk east from Sarn, while Bryngarw Country Park lies 1½ miles north. Further afield you will find the sandy beaches of Ogmore-by-Sea and Merthyr Mawr either side of the mouth of the River Ogmore, 8 miles south-west, while urban hounds can pad the pavements of Cardiff or Swansea, which are both within a 25-mile radius.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
