  • "Really comfortable cottage, very well equipped."

    My husband & son (both over 6ft) weren't keen on the low doors, but for my normal height it was fine! The rooms were spacious, the kitchen well-equipped, and the beds very comfortable. Thank you very much!

  • "Albert house was a truly lovely base for us during our short stay and we would not hesitate to book again for a return trip to the area."

    The house has everything you need, instructions are clear, the place is cosy and comfortable. It is very well located for many nearby attractions and even those further afield if you don't mind a longer drive.

    Thank you for your kind feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Albert House. Property Owner

  • "Lovely place to stay, really comfortable and warm with lovely touches."

    Could’ve done with an oven glove, we did search but couldn’t find one. Bit of noise from the property next door being renovated, the owner did apologise but if we’d of stayed longer than 3 nights it could’ve got a bit annoying as it went on into the evening.

    We stayed visiting family but it's just a short walk to the black mountains. Cottage is spotless and facilities are excellent. Highly recommended.

  • "Superb stay, enjoyed your lovely cottage and when you hit the Brecon Beacons - just wow!"

    My only slight issue with the property was the parking space at the rear, reversed in as per your listing instructions but the gradient nearly took my front bumper off, getting in and out. I just parked at the front with no issues like the rest of the residents on the street. Might be worth adding this to your listing? I only have an Astra, nothing crazy low. Again, thank you very much.

    Hi Nick, thank you for your feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Apologies you had an issue using the off-street parking, we will look at updating the instructions for parking on the driveway; thanks for pointing out that on-street parking is available, as there is usually a plentiful supply, there is also a free public carpark a few hundred yards down the road. Many thanks for staying at Albert House Property Owner

    Pictures don't do it justice. Garden much longer than I expected. Loads to see and do in South wales

  • "My son and I enjoyed our stay very much, as all was as was promised, more really, as a lovely welcome tea, coffee and biscuits tray greeted us and was just what we needed on arriving."

    It was ideally placed for us to do all our planned trips. The Mumbles, Monkey Sanctuary, The National Gardens, Waterfalls all enjoyed with the picnic we took when we went. One day we went via Carmarthen (shops and late lunch) and on down to the coast to take an evening trip on Pembrokeshire Boats to see Puffins, Shearwaters, Razorbills and Guillemots. These 1000s of birds are a must for anyone staying there in May, June or July before birds finish rearing young and fly away. A holiday home I would recommend to anyone as the views are beautiful every time you leave the house.

  • "This is a really cute little house and we had a happy two weeks in it."

    We were particularly glad that the bed was long enough - too often in holiday cottages the bed is too short and has a footboard so that tall people do not fit in it - so big plus for that. It would have been useful to know that the off road reserved parking at the back of the property is actually at the bottom of the garden and that there is back access to the garden. Had we known that, we would have brought our bicycles. The communication with the owner once we were in the cottage was brilliant, so we could clarify things like what we should do with composable waste.

The property

This quaint, mid-terrace cottage is situated in the village of Brynamman, just a stone’s throw away from the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons National Park).

Albert House is a heart-warming retreat for families seeking a break from normality, providing easy access to Swansea, South Wales the Brecon Beacons and just 150 yards away from the entrance to the River Amman cycle trail.

After locating the off-road parking space, step into the sitting room, complete with white washed cottage walls, a woodburning stove, settee and a Smart TV for catching up on your favourite shows.

Carry the conversation into the kitchen/diner, where you can prepare the dining table as the designated chef rustles up something tasty, with help from the electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher, making cleaning up a breeze!

Whisk yourself off upstairs to the bedrooms, hosting a king-size and double behind original barn doors, each neutrally presented with plenty of storage space.

Wake up with a refreshing shower in the sleek shower room, before popping the kettle on for a morning coffee and enjoying the calls of the birds from the enclosed patio.

Based close to the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons National Park), there are a plethora of scenic walking trails nearby, including scenic routes to Henrhyd Falls, along with historical landmarks such as Paxton’s Tower, but if you can drag yourself to explore the other side of the Glanaman Valley, you’ll find the beautiful Cwm Clydach nature reserve, home to flycatchers, redstarts and dippers.

Other local attractions worth boxing off include the Showcaves of Wales at Dan-yr-Ogof, the Dark Sky Reserve in Wales, and the industrial heritage of the Big Pit and Blaenavon Iron works.

If you fancy a change of scenery, just 16 miles away lies the vibrant city of Swansea, home to the striking National Waterfront Museum where you can relive the industrial times of Wales, uncover distinctive art collections at The Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, source local goods at the original Swansea Market, and enjoy the exotic planting at Clyne Gardens, along with so much more.

With all this in easy reach, Albert House makes a fabulous escape to South Wales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
