This sweet property is the perfect base to enjoy a relaxing getaway or active break, perfectly positioned for exploring the spectacular Afan Forest Park, popular with walkers and cyclists.

Nestled in the confluence of rivers Afan and Pelenna and surrounded by lush Welsh countryside, this traditional terraced property has been stylishly renovated into a welcoming holiday home. An array of scenic walks and cycle routes are nearby through the Afan Valley, making this cottage perfect for two couples or a family looking for outdoor adventures with their furry best friends.

 

With a useful entrance hallway for leaving wet boots and leads, the living space flows pleasantly together, with a dining table, lounge area, and spacious kitchen with range oven. Dogs and humans alike will love cosying up around the wood burner after long days of exploring, with a tasty stew simmering in the oven. And there’s a large TV for those lazy evenings when only a film will do. The smart bedrooms can be configured to suit your group and there’s ample space to spread out in the bathroom. Cyclists will be happy to find a secure storeroom in the courtyard garden, where there’s room for surfboards, canoes and other outdoor gear too. The private garden also makes a great spot for an early morning coffee, while the pups sniff out the new day and birds chime their dawn chorus.

 

The house is just 300 metres from the Richard Burton Trail and the famous viaduct, and there are several other trails within easy reach too - including those in the spectacular Afan Forest Park. Take a trip to Margam Country Park, 7 miles away, and let the dogs explore the parkland before enjoying a pamper in the self-service dog wash, or blow away the cobwebs on the 3-mile long stretch of beach at Aberavon Sands near Port Talbot (6 miles), with beautiful views over Swansea Bay.

This was a lovely little cottage perfect for my husband and I with Fred our border terrier. Location was so relaxing lovely walk into the Afan Forrest, port Talbot were so easily accessible. Lovely little Richard Burton Trail into port Talbot. If you are wishing to visit the Gower, pick your times as Swansea is quite busy at rush hour. The distanceRead more isnt far but slow roads. Beautiful beaches at Rhossili and Oxwich Bay and enjoyable walks at the mumbles. Will definitely visit again. Hide
