    “Disappointing cottage and location”

    On the positive side, the owner left a lovely welcome pack for us on arrival. The village is in a good location with regards to local places of interest. However, we did have some issues. The photographs online are very misleading. When we visited, the garden was overgrown and there was a pile of bricks where the BBQ was supposed to be. The view from the end of the garden is not uninterrupted as stated, there are now farm buildings and wind turbines to be seen. The details state that the cottage ...

    On the positive side, the owner left a lovely welcome pack for us on arrival. The village is in a good location with regards to local places of interest. However, we did have some issues. The photographs online are very misleading. When we visited, the garden was overgrown and there was a pile of bricks where the BBQ was supposed to be. The view from the end of the garden is not uninterrupted as stated, there are now farm buildings and wind turbines to be seen. The details state that the cottage is on an A road and some noise may be heard. The road is about 10 feet away from the front door and is used by heavy goods lorries all day long. All the bedrooms are on the roadside of the property and consequently we couldn't open the windows due to noise and fumes. As the weather was very hot this made for an uncomfortable holiday as no fans were provided. The kitchen wasn't very clean and overall the property needs quite a bit of maintenance. In our opinion the area isn’t an ideal location for a holiday let.

The property

A delightful, spacious terraced cottage, in the heart of the old mining village of Cwmgors, 6 miles from Ammanford, at the base of the picturesque Black Mountain.

Lovingly restored with great attention to detail, with warm, welcoming accommodation, this charming cottage offers a cosy sitting room, a well-equipped, sunny kitchen with dining area, and three attractive, comfortable bedrooms.

The pretty garden has a patio area as well as a meadow garden, which has an abundance of wild flowers, attracting many birds and butterflies.

There are views of Black Mountain from the garden, making it a lovely spot for outdoor dining.

This wonderful cottage lies at the crossroads of four areas of natural beauty; to the east you can be at the peak of the Black Mountain in the Brecon Beacons within half an hour and to the west lies Swansea Bay, the Mumbles and the stunning Gower coastline.

The epic and romantic castles of Carmarthenshire lie just 20 minutes away to the north, whilst the hauntingly beautiful Vale of Neath, and its waterfalls, lie very close by to the south.

A convenient, relaxing base, and a wonderful cottage for a memorable family holiday.

About the location

CWMGORS

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. A central base for discovering all this part of Wales has to offer.
