The Vale of Glamorgan region
Pontardawe is nestled between Swansea city centre and the Brecon Beacons National park. The region is ideally suited to walkers and outdoor types who don't mind a bit of rain. The town centre holds many festivals throughout the spring and summer. It is ideal for a peaceful get away from it all holiday, but with a central position for visits to Swansea, Neath waterfalls, Gower coast beaches, South Wales bike path, Llanelli, the Brecon Beacons, and Dan y Ogof Caves.
We are ten minutes drive to Pontardawe town centre, pubs, restaurants supermarkets, leisure centre, Swimming pool, theatre and cinema. There are many local walks to suit all abilities and we are situated on a Ramblers route. There are Red Kites and many species of birds if you are interested in bird watching and many nature trails for mountain bikers and walkers alike. The Swansea canal cycle path from Pontardawe to Swansea has a wide variety of wildlife. Tourism is now becoming a growth industry in and around the Pontardawe area, some of the old collieries and mines in the area have been turned into museums such as Cefn Coed Colliery Museum, and nearby Aberdulais Falls, a spectacular waterfall now owned by the National Trust, is the largest electricity generating water wheel in Europe. The reopening of the Canal in this area together with the beautiful countryside provides a wealth of places to visit and a rambler's paradise. The South Wales Miners Museum in the Afan Argoed Countryside Centre, Neath Abbey, Gnoll Country Park and Margam Country Park are a few of the popular local sites of interest for visitors.
Pontardawe itself now has a growing population of over 5,000. Celebrated for its contributions to the Arts, especially music, the town is home to the modern Pontardawe Arts Centre which hosts regular performances by both renowned National and International artists, an active film society, the Valley Folk Club and the Pontardawe Acoustic Music Club. This growing town is best known though for the Pontardawe Festival of World Music and Dance held every August since 1978.

"Absolutely perfect ! Will be back..."
Having spent a few nights at different places in Pontardawe, I decided to browse for somewhere a bit quieter and more comfortable as I still had a few weeks before coming home. Then I came across this little treasure, genuinely could not have found a better place to spend the duration. Was greeted by Eileen and Mark who were genuine and hospitable. The caravan is immaculate and well equipped, it has everything and anything you could possibly want and need. The shower is better than most places I've ever been in, which was a lovely surprise as my memory's of being in a caravan as a child aren't so great. However this is 5* for a caravan. Even on the coldest of nights we were warm and comfortable. The surrounding are is beautiful, the views from the caravan down the valley were a treat. I'd literally open my curtains before I went to sleep knowing that id wake up with another autumnal sunrise over the hills, quality! we'd jump out of the van greeted by the lovely dog, chickens and ducks. We had the log burner on every night , star gazing most nights. Great walks up the hill, found a stone circle on top off the mountain behind the farm framed with a pink sunset. Can't wait to go back to be honest and see more off what there is in the area knowing I've got Penwaun to go back to. Eileen provided clean towels linen etc without request, very homely feel and we were well looked after. It really was a home from home, the perfect 'base'. What they advertise is what u get, a rural retreat, with anything u need within a ten minute drive. Bang on.
Thank you for letting us stay here...
Thank you! We really enjoyed your stay, and Jilly (the dog) loved the walks and play with you . Hope to see you again soon so you can see more of the area.

"An expansive and relaxing environment."
We felt so welcomed by hosts Eileen and Mark,
whose warmth and humor made us feel immediately at home.
The guest accommodation was surprisingly spacious as well as feeling clean and cosy.
It was marvelous to be up there in all that space and fresh air and quiet.
Time to breathe...feel ... think ... reflect ...

The views are edible.
We left feeling relaxed and enriched.
We happily recommend this holiday experience to all.
