“Great location, lovely cottage”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Had a lovely stay in Ysgbor Tawe. The cottage has been converted really nicely, is clean, has everything you need and the location is lovely. Once we'd booked the owner was easily contactable and lovely to deal with.
The patio at the back of the cottage was perfect for breakfast with a view and the kids loved running off down the field to explore.
We visited with our 3 young children and the layout of the cottage wasn't perfect for small kids - particularly if you might need to get up to see to them in the middle of the night - as there are staircases separating all the bedrooms so you can't be in a room directly next to them. Travel cot and stairgates were easily available in the cottage though so safety wasn't an issue. All the bedrooms are double beds and don't split to twin beds - ok for kids for a couple of nights but for a longer stay we would definitely book the next door cottage instead which I believe has a bunkbed room.
We have family in the area and these cottages will definitely be where we stay when we visit in future!
