The South Wales region

Pontardawe is nestled in the beautiful Swansea valley and offers a central location for all South Wales visitor attractions and superb walking; climbing, cycling, horse riding,golfing, surfing and adventure sports opportunities, being close to both the Brecon Beacons and the stunning Gower coastline. The National Showcave Centre for Wales; Carreg Cennan Castle; the National Botanic Gardens of Wales; Aberglasney Gardens; St. Fagans Welsh Folk Museum; Waterfall Country; Afan Mountain Biking Centre, Clyne Gardens; Big Pit National Coal Mining Museum, Llangennith Beach ( one of the 8 best surfing spots in the U.K.) are all within easy reach and whatever your interests, our visitors often say, that even two weeks in this beautiful, diverse and richly cultural area, is just not long enough to enjoy it all. Even in winter the magic is still there - you can enjoy deserted beaches and coastline walks with only the waves and seagulls for company. After exhilarating walking you can enjoy seriously good food in the many Swansea restaurants, then home to put your feet up in front of a roaring fire.

Gower

Pontardawe has lots of little shops as well as two supermarkets; several restaurants; a golf course( just over 6100 yards Par 70 with beautiful hilltop views); a swimming pool; gym; leisure centre, its own Theatre and Arts Centre, showing a wonderful variety of live entertainment - all are within a 2 minute drive or 10 - 15 minute walk of the cottage.
Ynysmeudwy ('water meadow of the hermit') lies at the foot of the Gurad mountain. You can roam freely on the many public footpaths that wind through the woods or across open farm and moorland on the mountain, with beautiful views down the Swansea Valley. On a clear day, Mumbles Head beckons invitingly from a sparkling sea.
The Swansea Canal is a 2 minute walk away and from there you can walk along the canal to Pontardawe - 15 minutes - sometimes spotting the rare and beautiful native Kingfisher. Nearby, the wide River Tawe wends its way down the valley to the sea and here you can picnic and sunbath at various points along the river; also cycle or walk on the easy track, often spotting magestic herons that fish along the river. The track is part of the Sustrans National Cycle Route network and stretches from Ystragynlais, further up the valley all the way (traffic free) to Swansea (16 kms) and from there along the seafront to the Victorian seaside village of Mumbles with its little boutique shops and eateries.

“Very nice but.....”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2013

Nice property, but comfortable seating in short supply. Felt a little bit aggrieved to find 2 of the bedrooms locked as we like to spread ourselves out when we are away. I realise some people may take liberties ie. inviting others but once it was confirmed there was only the 2 of us we would have appreciated them unlocking the bedrooms. Although the owners could not have been more helpful it did feel as if we were being watched slightly, I know they only live round the corner but it felt that whenever we left the place they were there!.

I'm so sorry you felt this way. If asked the unused bedrooms are unlocked. Couples who book the cottage with the low occupancy discounted couples rate and prefer to sleep in separate bedrooms can do so for a small laundry/cleaning fee. Quests often have complimented us on our comfortable seating. Thank you for your feedback.

“Truly Five Star Cottage”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2013

A very belated review of our family holiday in August '12. A beautifully restored cottage, spotless and extremely comfortable, we appreciated the attention to detail (including the silk filled duvets!). We had a few days at Rhossili beach (about an hours drive) which is very safe for the children's first experience of body boarding and visited nearby National Trust properties and, on a rainy day, the Swansea LC waterpark. Thank you Fiona for all of the advice and the great welcome including the cake and honey. We were delighted to hear you have been winning more awards for the cottages and the stunning garden - congratulations!

“Beautiful cottage, perfect weekend!”

Reviewed 21 Mar 2013

We booked Craig Cottage for my birthday weekend in March. On arrival I was delighted to find a welcome sign on the door and a beautifully presented cottage which was to be our home for the weekend. As we entered the cottage it was toasty warm with fresh flowers and a bara brith to make us feel welcomed and at home. The cottage is very tastefully decorated with pretty antiques and quirky furniture making it feel very homely, yet interesting, the cottage is also very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The kitchen, wet room and main bathroom are all modern and beautifully presented. There are French doors leading from the kitchen onto the yard which has a picnic table and pretty flower and herb pots. As we settled in with a glass of wine we were visited by the owner Fiona. She made us feel so welcome and very kindly gave me a birthday card, these little personal touches really were appreciated and made the weekend very memorable. Fiona has a wonderful knowledge of the local and extended areas and gave us some great tips on places to eat and good walks for the dogs. When my parents arrived later in the evening we ordered a Chinese meal from the local take away, it was tasty and good value. During the weekend we enjoyed lovely walks by the canal which is only minutes away from the cottage. We also visited Craig y Nos country park and Caswell Bay, great walks for the dogs and us too! On the Saturday evening we visited The Butchers, delicious food, lovely wine and great atmosphere and only a short taxi ride from the cottage. After a long walk it was lovely to return to the cottage, light the log burner and relax with a glass of wine. I would without reservation recommend the cottages for a weekend break or holiday, I just wish we could have stayed longer! It is also great to find a dog friendly property of such a high standard, the dogs loved their break as much as we did!! The cottages are so special and Fiona's attention to detail really make the cottages unique and a place you want to return to again and again. We are already planning our next visit!

Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to write such a comprehensive and thoughtful review! It was lovely to meet you all and it would be wonderful to welcome you again anytime! Kind regards Fiona

“Fabulously restored cottage. Spotlessly clean and very homely.”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2013

What an absolute gem of a place to stay! We would rank this as one of the highest quality cottages we have been to. Thank you Fiona for the wonderful welcome - all the special finishing touches (welcome flowers on the door, cake, milk, and gorgeous honey) were very much appreciated. As we were busy at our daughters graduation we didn't spend as much time in the cottage or exploring as we would have liked but that gives us a perfect excuse to return! Thank you too Fiona for making Dylan, our dog, so welcome - it's very difficult to find such quality accommodation where we can take him. Altogether a fabulous couple of days - sad to go home.Thank you

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! It was lovely to welcome you all and we hope you will come again, perhaps for a little longer. Kind regards Fiona and Andrew

“We felt like at home, clean, comfortable, cozy. We´ll come back!!”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2012

Thank you Fiona, Since the very beggining with your husband helping us to get in, we felt like at home until the very end. And so many good recommendations of where to go, what to do, it really made enjoyable the days we spent at there. We will see again as soon as we can, be sure!

“Rescued at difficult time, home away from home.”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2012

Unfortunately our reason for staying at the Nant Cottage wasn't a normal one, my Grandfather was going in for a huge operation in Morriston hospital and my Nan wanted to be close to him, been as we live 1 hour away. We got his operate date a week previous so we were pushed for time to find a hotel/rental. I had been doing some research and loved the look of the cottage, a few bedrooms meant relatives could come and go as needed. I rang Fiona with my issue and she was amazing, she helped us through everything. The cottage was a real saviour for us - even when there wasn't a bed ready for him, we had the cottage. Everything was completely spotless, they have been renovated to the highest standard. We now feel like this is a home away from home. On our next visit hopefully it will be one we can relax and enjoy more which is what the cottage deserves. Thank you Fiona for your help and understanding. We can't wait to return.

“Great place to stay in South Wales”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2012

Thank you Fiona for the really nice and warm welcome. The cottage is so comfortable and warm and well equipped. We had a lovely time thanks to your advice and all the information books you've made. We would love to return someday to see more of Gower and the Brecon Beacons

Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to leave a review. It was such a pleasure to meet your lovely family - we hope you will return to visit Wales sometime. Warm regards, Fiona

“Charming cottage with even more charming hosts”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2012

The joy of that holiday at Cwmshon Cottage started already during the booking phase. Fiona was always quick and helpful with answers to my many questions. (babybed, babychair, things to do, etc.) We were so much looking forward to the holiday and were more than positively surprised when we finally got there. Beautiful old looking cottage with modern - no luxury - facitilies and a cosy living room with stove and antique interieur. At first glance, you could think the place is a bit "in the middle of nowhere" but actually, it is ideally located between the mountains (15 min drive) and the sea (gower is only 30 min drive - if you do not get lost). Fiona put a lot of effort into an individual folder with information of her favourite places and things to do. Much better than searching through all that leaflets and advertisments. But we got even more information directly from her, which we very much appreciated. It was always a pleasure to chat with her or her husband Andrew. Summary: we enjoyed our stay VERY much and want to come back soon. Here a part of my visitors book entry: " There are no words to thank you for your hospitality and the effort you put into this lovely place. You made our stay special and it felt like visiting family."

Thank you so much for your very thoughtful review and kind comments. It was such a pleasure to welcome your dear family and we hope you may want to visit us again some day! Warm regards, Fiona and Andrew
