  • "The cottage is newly renovated and exceeded our exceeded our expectations."

    It was very clean, well equipped with plenty of cutlery, dinnerware, towels etc. & tastefully furnished to a very good standard. The beds are extremely comfortable and the shower/bath work well. Although it was winter when we stayed the cottage was toasty warm thanks to the heating system and log fire. The horses stables (there are 2 horses) in the front yard was a huge highlight of our stay. It was just fantastic watching them from the comfort of our home. It was great to get to know the family who own the cottage who are very welcoming and ensured we were looked after. The location of the cottage is a perfect balance of being close to amenities and the city of Swansea but also being in a peaceful rural location. It is within reach of a huge variety of attractions, beaches and waterfalls (a quick browse on google will show these). We made some amazing memories here and will hopefully return (in warmer weather!). Would highly recommend booking Cwrt Y Wennol as holiday accommodation if visiting South Wales.
