    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 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

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.
