The property

Driving through the Welsh valleys and you will be delighted with your holiday location long before you pull up outside this charming semi-detached cottage on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Situated on a quiet side road next to the owner’s home, you will find this a tranquil place to relax after wonderful days out and about.

Open the gate, walk down the steps and wander into the well-equipped kitchen where the owners leave you a welcome pack including their own eggs.

From the kitchen, you can walk through the spacious dining room, where family meals will be thoroughly enjoyed, and into the comfortable sitting room, a superb space with reclining sofas where you can relax in front of the warming woodburner on cooler evenings.

Spend time watching TV or just catching up and planning your next day out.

Three beautifully-presented bedrooms give you the best place to recharge your batteries with a great night’s sleep, and the two shower rooms are welcome after long walks or cycle rides.

Walk through the village along the riverbank, or head into the Brecon Beacons to view its spectacular scenery.

Remember to visit the spectacular Welsh coastline which is not far away, meaning that you can enjoy a variety of countryside and coastal days out.

Whatever you do during the day you will be pleased to return to this delightful cottage where you can sit on sunny evenings on the patio or settle indoors together.

A perfect location to experience true Welsh beauty.

About the location


Swansea 15 miles.

Cwmtwrch is a small village, divided into Upper and Lower Cwmtwrch due to a now disused railway line. The name of the village translates as "Valley of the Wild Boar", which derives from “Twrch Trwyth” - a mythical wild boar of King Arthur’s legends. Cwmtwrch boasts pubs, a shop, two natural springs, which many believe hold healing powers, plus the beautiful River Twrch, which runs through the village offering Brown Trout and Salmon fishing, while lovely countryside walks can be enjoyed along the river bank. The village also offers access to the network of Miner’s Trails which wind their way through a variety of terrains and scenery throughout the Cwmtwrch area, and extend into the south eastern mountain range of the Brecon Beacons National Park, offering great walking for all abilities. Within easy driving distance are the nationally-acclaimed Waterfall Country within the Neath Vale, the beaches and impressive surf of Aberavon and Swansea, and a little further, the beautiful Gower Peninsula and Carmarthenshire coastline.
