  • "A lovely location for a very quiet, walking or biking break."

    Found some super walks and we were able to recharge our batteries over the Christmas break. Owners very accommodating and helpful during our stay too.

  • "We were blessed with exceptional weather for our stay which did add to the holiday but I think that even without that it would have been a wonderful stay."

    So much to do and see in the area and at the end of the day a great place to unwind.

  • "The cabin was lovely and clean."

    The kitchen facilities had everything you need and the addition of the hot tub made it even more pleasant. The owners were lovely. There if you needed them but otherwise they left you to your holiday. Very enjoyable week. We did lots every day (walked up Pen Y Fan, four waterfall walk in Brecon and visited my favourite beaches Rhossilli and Three cliffs Bay). All very worth doing.

  • "Our stay at The cabin was a complete escape from our year and a half of Covid related issues."

    Both of us needed isolation and relaxation. As avid walkers and with two small dogs the location is perfect, the hot tub a much appreciated activity after climbing the common. If you are looking for isolation it is perfect, if your idea of isolation is not being able to see into the adjacent holiday rental it is not. We want to thank the owners for a break that ticked all the boxes for us. We will be back.

  • "The Cabin is a great place to stay, feels like you in the middle of nowhere but you are only a few miles from Swansea etc - Pontardawe is only a 10 min drive away and has a Tesco and Lidl for stocking up during your stay and Tesco deliver to The Cabin."

    ..The owners / hosts Michaela and Sinead were very welcoming and were on hand if any problems during your stay (which we didn't have)...Good pre arrival contact with Michaela....nice hot tub with views over the mountains..overall a great, comfortable place to stay and get away from it all...would recommend and would stay again

  • "Beautiful Cabin in most scenic surroundings."

    Loved the balcony and hottub overlooking the fantastic views. Host was very friendly and made us feel welcome. Would recommended though that the write up of The Cabin mentions that some of the country road to reach The Cabin is not suitable for cars with low suspension! We were so glad we left our BMW with low suspension home as we wouldn't have been able to reach The Cabin without damaging the car.

  • "The cabin is situated in a lovely setting, with the most beautiful views - just the perfect place to relax on the decking or in the hot tub!"

    It is also well positioned to explore the Brecons or the Gower Peninsula. We had the most wonderful time and didn't want the week to end.

  • "This was the first log cabin that I have ever stayed at and was such a well needed rest."

    It was perfect and could not of been anywhere better. The lodge was really well presented, clean, warm and cosy. The views were stunning and the owners were very helpful and welcoming. The lodge was booked for myself and a friend and we both had the perfect time. When we arrive there was Christmas lights covering the lodge and and a festive Christmas tree inside. There is a town with shops and local pubs just a short 5 minute drive just up the road. We did order a take away but unfortunately could not find the address . It was perfect and would highly recommend a stay in this lodge if anyone does get the chance.

    Its an amazing place - very cozy and comfortable, clean with all modern cons. It is tastefully decorated. Despite the torrential rain outside, we felt toasty on the inside. We didnt use the hot tub this time but will the next time we stay.

  • "The cabin was the perfect romantic retreat with every comfort needed provided."

    We had a lovely week the weather was glorious which did help but even in the rain I'm sure you couldn't fail to feel relaxed at the cabin. We ate out at the Butchers Arms the food and service were excellent. Also had breakfast at the nearby haystack also highly recommended and the bakery upstairs! The cabin was spotlessly clean and the hot tub the icing on the cake for relaxation. Thank you to Michaela for being on hand and with recommendations and advice about the local area.

  • "The Cabin is located in the middle of some fields and quiet farm land with stunning views."

    The owner's house is the only thing near by but far enough to still be very private. The building itself if very clean, warm, cosy and very well equipt with an excellent kitchen, relaxing lounge, large shower room and comfortable bed. The hot tub is amazing! It is a short drive (around half an hour) to the coast with some nice beaches (including Bracelt Bay which is a great spot for rock-pooling) and resturants. The owners were very polite and helpful. It is an ideal short break location!

  • "The best staycation we’ve ever had!"

    Already planning to go back next year. The cabin was well above expectations and had everything we needed. It was off the beaten path which added to its charm, that being said we were still able to order an Indian off just eat and have it delivered (highly recommended Raz Indian also). The hot tub was maintained daily and was always on and ready to relax in, we spent most of our evenings relaxing here looking at the stars. The owners were fantastic and insured we had everything we needed and were always available if we needed them. As per their recommendations, we took a day trip to the mumbles and had a brilliant day there. It’s also close to the Brecon Beacons so another day was spent exploring the four falls trail. We did have a very rainy day which we spent in the cabin and had such a relaxing day. Highly recommended this cabin for anyone wishing to relax and enjoy the beautiful views and surrounding scenery.

    Already recommended to family and friends and definetely considering returning during summer. The owners of the property have thought of everything to make it homely and everything you'd need already there for you. WiFi was nice and speedy, extra cables for connecting your own devices, plenty of sockets, board games, music Dock, even left a bottle of milk in the fridge for us (even though we'd brought our own). The view and the hot tub are definetely the outstanding features though.

    Unfortunately there were dogs on a neighbouring farm that barked all night every night we were there, which interrupted our sleep.

We enjoyed the stay and was a lovely location if a little dark on the drive down into the farm.
