About the property

Nestled in the heart of the village of Cymmer, in the picturesque Afan Valley, rests this superbly renovated three bedroom property Ivy House South Wales.

Contemporary yet warm and homely, Ivy house sleeps up to six guests and offers the perfect base for both family and friends alike looking to explore the delights of South Wales.

A sought-after off-road parking space greets you upon arrival, leading you to a charming terrace resting at the front of the lovely dwelling, inviting you to kick off your shoes and enjoy a moment of peace with a cup of tea as you watch the world pass by.

Stepping inside, you'll be delighted by the spacious open-plan living space, beautifully-decorated with a contemporary décor, complimented by traditional wood furnishings and boasting two sumptuous sofas gathered in front of the warming woodburning stove, perfect for those long winter nights.

Cook up a storm in the nearby kitchen, amply-equipped with all of the modern amenities necessary to assist with your self-catering needs, and gather your loved ones around the dining table to serve your culinary delights.

If you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, step outside for a leisurely seat on the patio, toasting a glass of fizz to a marvellous holiday.

As the day draws to a close, head back inside and climb the stairs to the first-floor where you'll find three thoughtfully laid out bedrooms, a double room and two twins, all beautifully-appointed with a neutral décor and rustic wooden features, offering a homely setting to rest your eyes ahead of another fun-filled day.

In the morning, kickstart your day with an invigorating rinse in the contemporary family bathroom.

After an action-packed day exploring your scenic surroundings, take the short stroll into the heart of Cymmer to indulge in a well deserved glass of wine at the Refreshment Rooms, stopping at Cymmer Fish Bar on your return for a bite to eat.

Avid cyclists will be delighted with a visit to Afan Forest Mountain Bike Trails, a hilly park featuring a number of thrilling rocky mountain-biking trails alongside a bike park featuring an exciting array of jumps and berms.

Spend a fun-filled day at Go Ape Margam, a challenging treetop adventure course boasting obstacles and thrilling zip-wires, who will be brave enough to take leap of faith on the UK’s biggest Tarzan Swing?

Pack up your beach going essentials and head off to the nearby seaside town of Port Talbot for an invigorating dip in the tranquil waters of Swansea Bay, or soak up the sun as you indulge in a portion of fish and chips from the beachfront in true seaside tradition.

Explore the quirky exhibitions on display at the Baked Bean Museum of Excellence, challenge the little ones with a game at Aberavon Adventure Golf, or tackle the climb to the summit of Mynydd Dinas, offering captivating views across the coastline as far as the Wicklow Hills of Ireland.

Whether a rambler, mountain biker or you simply want to escape to the Welsh hills, Ivy House South Wales is the perfect retreat.
