Giving a beautiful panorama of the Black Mountains from every window, the mobile home is excellent. Very comfortable, warm and well equipped with all modern appliances in perfect working order. What a find. Although it is found up a small mountain with a couple of mini hairpin bends that just adds to the thrill. It is perfectly safe but a little bit adventurous and the view is spectacular. The Landlady and Landlord are very welcoming and have created the perfect holiday for anyone who wants a small adventure. Plenty of gorgeous sightseeing in the locality with an abundance of waterfalls from easy access to slightly more challenging. Totally suitable for children to Grandparents, I will certainly go again.
We really enjoyed your visit, looking forward to seeing you again soon

"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 ... Eileen and Mark, guided us to some local places of beauty. The views are edible. We left feeling relaxed and enriched. We happily recommend this holiday experience to all.
Thank you! we really enjoyed your stay. it was our pleasure to welcome such lovely people to Penwaun. Come back soon.
