    “We had a good holiday and it was lovely for the children to have the stream right out side the cottage.”

    On the whole we were comforatble and it provided most of what we needed. However there was no washing machine and as we were a family group with 8 children it would have been very useful to have one. I think the itinerary on the website could be improved. Also the fridge and freezer was not big enough for the number of us there. There was already items in the fridge and freezer when we arrived, in particular the freezer was full and no room for our own stuff. We had brought quite a bit as we were self-catering. We contacted the owners and they said for us to just clear it out. I transferred as much as I could to a fridge in one of the bedrooms but whether it would have been useable after a week I do not know. As we were leaving on the morning of our departure two ladies came to clean. I explained my concerns to them having already written a note. They said the property was not really used for self-catering but as a B&B for bikers and she did the cooking for them. She was not best pelased when I told her that I had moved the food as she was expecting guests that day and the food was for their breakfast the following morning. I think this position needs to be made cleared on the website for anyone else hoping to use it for self catering.

The property

Resting on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, this unusual style property was once a public house serving food and drinks to the local community; the traditional Old Tredegar Arms is now a large accommodation boasting well-appointed family rooms and spacious living areas.

Ideal for those who are lovers of the outdoors and motorcycle activities, seeking a comfortable holiday let, in which to fully relax with the family after thrilling adventures to the Gower and Brecon Beacons National Park.

Step straight into the lounge, which was once part of the social bar area, offering comfy sofas for the whole group to gather together around a cosy woodburner.

The utilitarian-style kitchen is fully appointed with everything you could possibly require throughout your stay.

From here you can access the dining room, which has ample seating for big groups to comfortably dine together morning, through to evening.

For those who have limited mobility, the ground floor family room provides easy access for wheelchair/disabled guests, with level floors and handrails in the adjoining shower room.

The bedrooms all comprise en-suite facilities for your convenience, along with zip and link beds, so you can alternate your sleeping arrangements with ease, should you wish.

Up on the first floor along the sweeping corridors, the spacious family rooms are enhanced by bright, reviving off-white shades and lovely bedding to finish the ensemble in a stylish fashion.

One of the family rooms even boasts a nicely appointed kitchenette, so you can make yourselves a cup of tea or coffee in the morning before heading downstairs.

Outside you can enjoy the gentle flow of the river alongside the old alehouse, with plenteous space to park up your cars and/or motorcycles, and the village pub rests only two minutes away.

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.
