Nestled on outskirts of Bridgend in a village to the West called Kenfig Hill, Miners Cottage is in an elevated position overlooking Margam Valley and mountains and with views across Swansea Bay to the Mumbles and Gower peninsular, making it a perfect base for touring the beautiful Southern Wales coastline and Brecon Beacons National Park.

This four star cottage was once part of the Margam Estate and has been in Ruth's family for almost 200 years and has been lovingly restored to a very high standard and now offers a double, twin and a single room. The bathroom was inspired by the slate and steel industries of Wales past with bath, separate power shower, and adjustable mood lighting. The modern kitchen houses a fridge and freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washer-dryer. The slate floored dining area seats ten people so there is ample room to hold dinner parties for friends. The spacious lounge is perfect for cosy evenings in with comfortable sofas, a TV and DVD player as well as lots of interactive games for evenings in. There is a private garden with patio furniture, great for barbecues. A cot and highchair can be provided. One well behaved dog welcome.

The cottage is situated on a private quiet lane, one of only four cottages in a row. There is a wide open space we affectionately call 'the mountain' just at the end of the row where you can take the kids to play on the swings or take the dog for a run around. There are also many walks you can take, just by walking out of the front door and hiking over the countryside paths. It's perfectly located 5 minutes from either 37 or 38 of the M4, ten to 15 minutes from Porthcawl and perfectly located for exploring South Wales. Conveniently, there is a bus stop at the end of the row which will take you into the town of Bridgend or out to Porthcawl and the coast, which also means you don't need a car to book here, if you catch a train to Bridgend, you can get the bus to the end of the row.

On your arrival at Miners Cottage, you will find waiting for you welcome provisions of tea, coffee, milk, sugar, a bottle of wine, fresh flowers along with Bread, Butter and Welsh cakes. This is a real home from home.
