    “This is an well-placed cottage: on the doorsteps of the lovely nature that the Brecon Beacons offers, and not too far from the beautiful beaches of the Gower (throw in an evening meal in The Mumbles).”

    The cottage itself was very pleasant. It's a great place to cook and sleep, and since that's basically what we used it for what more could you ask for. Nice backyard, which includes some trails within a wooded area.

The property

Ynyswen 1.9 miles.

Brook Cottage is a quirky countryside cottage nestled in the village of Abercraf near Ynyswen, South Wales.

Ideally situated within reaching distance of the Brecon Beacons, this charming abode provides a fantastic space for both a couple or a group of four seeking an action-packed adventure in the south of Wales.

Enter into this charming cottage and be greeted by two vintage green armchairs and a traditional Welsh dresser, before moving your way over to the sofa where you can keep warm from the heat of the woodburning stove that lies within the striking inglenook fireplace.

Turn on the TV to find an entertaining movie for the whole group to enjoy, before wandering into the homely farmhouse kitchen filled with antique furnishings and a lovely oak table, where you can sit and chat with friends whilst the chef of the group takes to the contemporary electric stove to whip up a delicious three-course meal.

Settle down for the evening with a relaxing soak in the bathtub or cleanse yourself with a rinse under the overhead shower, before grabbing your towel and heading into the warmth of your bedroom for the week.

Choose to stay in one of the two double bedrooms available, both of which boast calming neutral hues along with contrasting dark wood furniture creating a relaxing space where you can lay your head to rest at the end of an eventful day exploring the area.

Kick start your day with a refreshing stroll out in the garden, where you can enjoy breakfast out on the lawn at the outdoor dining area before putting on your best walking gear and heading out for an action-packed adventure.

Embark on a scenic hike through the Brecon Beacons National Park and discover historical landmarks such as Herbert's Quarry and the enchanting Lower Neuadd Reservoir, sure to take your breath away.

Wander the National Botanic Gardens of Wales, stopping off at the imposing Carreg Cennen Castle and Paxton's Tower along the way.

Further afield in the city of Swansea you can spend the day wining and dining in the Maritime Quarter, watching as boats bob happily in the waters.

Brook Cottage makes for a wonderful retreat to the Welsh countryside with your loved ones.
