    The location of this property is ideal for anyone who likes to walk and/or cycle. A few minutes down the A470 and you have the Cyfarthfa retail park for the shoppers and for those who like a bit of history there is Cyfarthfa Castle, that one of the notorious iron masters built, and lived in. The Brecon Beacon national park is a few minutes ride in the opposite direction. And then there's the Dan- yr- Ogof caves. Try a visit to the Rhigos mountain, on a clear day it commands a wide vista across the valley to the Brecon ranges (there's a refreshment van) I live six miles from this property. Its a little haven just to get away for a few days and relax with family members from London. We love it. The view from the sitting room is wonderful. If you leave the curtains drawn the early morning view ( this time of year) is both atmospheric and beautiful as the sun starts to rise. The mountain ranges, to the right, seem to go on forever, that view and the silence is truly magical and so very relaxing. But as always a good start to any holiday is the welcome you get on arrival, and here at Swn - y - Gwynt you'll certainly have that 'Welcome In the Hillside.'

The property

Drive up the hill, past forest walks and cycle paths and this charming annexe can be found, attached to the owners’ own home, in the hamlet of Cefn Rhigos in South Wales.

The property has its own private side entrance, accessed through a delightful garden with stunning views that will tempt you to stop and soak up the beautiful scenery.

Step into the light, welcoming conservatory where again, the far-reaching views will be an absolute joy!

The living space is open plan and has a sitting area with a sofa bed, which flows into the kitchen and dining area and lastly, there is a charming double bedroom with an en-suite wet room.

This wonderful annexe is ideal for a romantic getaway or a family holiday and, as the stunning views change so much with each season; they will be spectacular whatever time of year you stay.

In the summer, sit out on the pleasant patio and plan your days out and about.

If all you want to do is enjoy the countryside, then this is the place for you as nearby, the Afan Forest Park is great for both walking and mountain biking, as is BikePark Wales in Gethin Woods, Merthyr Tydfil.

Nestled on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, the array of scenic walks will astound you.

Take a picnic to the nearby waterfalls, enjoy a round of golf, or for the more adventurous, try the local glider flights on offer.

From energetic cycle holidays to relaxing breaks, this is the perfect holiday cottage!
