Extremely friendly owners. Made to feel completely at home. Everything we needed for our use and comfort. Swn Y Nant is an absolute gem of a cottage. Plenty to see and do within short distance.

This was one of the best cottages I have stayed in. The owners were exceptionally helpful and friendly, whilst respecting my privacy. The cottage was immaculately clean, warm, cosy and very well equipped. I would highly recommend the cottage and would hope to visit again in the future.

Incredibly well equipped and very clean annex to the owners home which makes a perfect holiday cottage located close to a nature reserve and within easy distance of Tondu railway station with regular trains that connect via Bridgend to many destinations around South Wales. The owners are super, there if you need them but not intrusive in any way. This is an ideal for visiting places without doing much driving if you like viewing the scenery as you travel to your destination. We stayed here for 2 weeks, and we loved every moment. With gardens such as Dyffryn (National Trust), the famous Gower peninsular, and several ruined castles such as Carreg Cennen or Dinefrw are an easy day trip from Swn Y Nant, The Museum of Welsh Life at St Fagans near Cardiff was another highlight of our trip. it would be quite easy to stay here again and duplicate very little. But I could equally return and repeat every day quite happily as we had such a great time.

This cottage is perfect, not only in its location but it also has everything you could possible need. The whole place was spotlessly clean. The kitchen is fully equipped and the owners went out of their way to make sure I had everything I needed without intruding on my privacy. There is plenty of off road parking and even a garden area for you to use that is not overlooked.... well apart from the odd sheep peeping at you through the hedge. The location is very peaceful with a nature reserve about 5 minutes walk away. It is situated about half way between Swansea and Cardiff. The Brecon Beacons are also quite close and there is a deer park around 20 minutes drive away with plenty to see and many walks of varying difficulties. I stayed for a week and I still didn't have time to do everything I wanted to do. I returned home completely relaxed having had a great time. I would definitely return given the chance. I can't recommend it highly enough.
