  • "Really enjoyed our time here, been to many hot tub locations over the years and this is in our top favourites now."

    Great location, all the amenities you could want, plenty of space to relax, very likely to return in the summer with it only being a short drive to the coast. My only comment would be the chlorine level of the hot tub, as to not disturb their guests they do not do daily PH checks of the hot tub and top up with chlorine when required. Instead there is a little floating pod that stays in the hot tub with chlorine inside. This did cause mine and my partners skin to become incredibly dry which we weren't prepared for so had no moisturiser to combat the dry skin. Only mentioning this so future guests know to pack a bottle of body lotion.

    A really nice lay out and great level of finish inside, unusual for a dog friendly place as often these are old and tired. We really couldn't fault it. The owners were also very helpful, with directions and any questions we had. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Top tip - if you arrive in the dark, trust your sat nav and the directions supplied as it really is in the middle of nowhere but worth the journey.

  • "The cabin is in a lovely secluded spot with great views."

    On first inspection the cabin seemed clean but me being a clean freak found the oven dirty and the toaster crumb tray full of burnt bits. I tried to clean both with what i had with me so i would at least use them. But would suggest a regular professional oven clean and empty the toast crumb tray every change over. All other parts of the cabin nice and clean. Would have liked a hoover as we both have asthma and dog hair floats on vinyl floors and using the broom just moves the dust and hair around the place. One other suggestion is to provide a poo bin for the dog waste as all the bags we put on the ground by the gate (as asked to) and they just sat there for the 3 days we were there. last point there were not dishwasher tablets left as per the cabin information but as we do not have one ourselves we just washed up as we do at home and yes we could have asked for some but do not like to disturb owners on such a small point. We still enjoyed out time there thank you

    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.

    Hot tub was a great extra! Especially great that dogs can come along too. Window in the bedroom a is a great extra touch and meant the views could be appreciated from every where. Hosts were lovely and very helpful ☺️ Brilliantly located for either peaceful walks within the National Park or visiting South Wales. A great find for a relaxing weekend away, Hope to come again soon x

The property

The Cabin is a detached lodge based on Nant Moel Isaf Farm (ref 1060276) in a secluded countryside location near the town of Pontardawe, South Wales.

Peacefully placed away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this remote log cabin serves as the perfect romantic getaway.

Accessed via a quiet country track, park outside the property and simply admire the awe-inspiring views.

Step up into the lodge and into its tastefully decorated living area, stylish and open-plan with thoughtful touches to make you feel right at home.

The stylish kitchen is well-appointed and also hosts a delightful breakfast bar where you can enjoy those hearty home-cooked meals together.

Just off of the living area lies a spacious shower room with a double walk-in shower, and the beautifully finished king-size bedroom boasting a quirky window looking back through the living room and out towards the picturesque valley beyond.

Experience this incredible setting perfectly with the areas outside of The Cabin; you can choose to sit on the decking with a drink and a good book, or relax in the hot tub and stargaze with a nice glass of bubbly to top it all off.

Pontardawe is just a short drive away, providing you with a selection of amenities to choose from, including a number of pubs with live music for a night of fun and laughter.

The surrounding area abounds in things to see and do; from the astounding Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons) and the Afan Foreset Park, to shopping and coastal views at Swansea and Llanelli.

A welcoming cottage in a location with something for everybody.

The Cabin is the perfect escape for those keen walkers, cyclists and bird watchers

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
