  • "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 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 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 Cwn Clydach nature reserve, home to flycatches, 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.
