  • "Great base, very well equipped, very clean very dog friendly garden."

    Only issue was the mattress in double room ( needs replacing ) after the first night we moved to the twin room As there was only four of us this wasn’t an issue Made contact with owner to ask a question re parking Very very helpful We had a fantastic week would recommend

  • "The home is big and generally comfortable and the garden is spacious."

    There was a wet dog smell when we entered the property; however, this is to be expected as pets are allowed at the property. Majority of the beds and mattresses and very tired and uncomfortable and need replacing. Also, a hoover would be useful, especially for longer stays, it was very frustrating not being able to hoover the floors with 8 people staying in the property. It is nicely decorated, with good facilities.

  • "The beds are uncomfortable, certainly passed their use by date, they simply need replacing."

    The TV’s in the bedrooms are ornaments as the Internet connectivity across the house is poor due to the weak signal strength. [The Hub was changed during our visit but house wide connectivity remains very poor] The house would benefit from the provision of a downstairs toilet and additional local authority recycling bags. In general the house was clean, tidy and well presented, its adequately equipped.

    We were no where near the walks that were advertised the garden which is meant to be dog friendly has a couple of gaps where your dog could easily get to the dog right next door We couldn't get the heating working and didn't get much help from the owner The locals were amazing and the neighbours were very helpful I think it should state you need a car to reach any nice beaches or walks

  • "Great location and base to explore the beautiful coastline, country parks and waterfalls."

    Accommodation had everything we required, few general maintenance issues which the hosts were happy to resolve. Property would suit families with older children as quite a few steps in garden. Dog friendly area.

  • "Lovely house, perfect for lots of family meeting up for the first time in 6 months!"

    Child friendly for the most part and the garden was a hit too! We didn’t have a pet but you could tell that they are allowed there. Overall it suited our needs well and we have booked to go back in October half term! There was a hoover on our visit :)

  • "Absolutely fabulous weekend away with family."

    Beautiful home, well equipped and comfortable for all. Cant wait to visit again to explore when the weather is better. This is a Wonderful house thats clean and tidy, however I'd have liked more pans/ seving dishes/ mixing bowls available to cook for 8 people. A vacuum was unseen and I would have liked to use one with an under 1. Needed more basics like toilet roll and bin bags, maybe instructions on how to do the recycling for the local area too would be great. The wifi was intermittent but could be due to weather conditions and some family DVDs available to use would have been perfect. Overall, the holiday was fantastic and would definitely visit again.

About the location


Ammanford 6 miles; Neath 15 miles.

The old mining village of Cwmgors, nestling at the base of the wonderful Black Mountain, offers visitors a shop, pub and a takeaway. There is superb walking from the doorstep, both in the Black Mountain and, further north, in the Amman Valley, with their vast moorlands, prehistoric burial sites and medieval castles, and acting as the gateway to the Brecon Beacons. The bustling market town of Ammanford is 6 miles away, and boasts a variety of shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, while the larger town of Neath is just a short drive away. For racing lovers, one of only two purpose built, all-weather trotting race tracks is close by at Tairgwaith, and holds regular race meetings from March to September. To the south is the magnificent Welsh coastline, with fabulous sandy beaches along The Mumbles, the National Wetland Centre of Wales and Pembrey Country Park. The town of Pontardawe is also well-worth a visit, a rural area enriched in Industrial History to explore as well as modern-day experiences of a brilliant leisure centre and swimming pool for an afternoon of sport, as well as an 18-hole golf course and an arts centre, offering something for every interest it's a lovely place to visit. A central base for discovering all of the Welsh wonders in the area, surrounded by an array of fun-filled amenities, Cwmgors is a brilliant place to spend your holidays.
