We had a wonderful stay in the converted barn, very comfortable and and lots of space. The views are stunning and there's lots of outside areas for children to play, run around and explore. My sister and I even managed to run up the hill...well more of a mountain one evening - beautiful open countryside and great views. The downstairs bedroom and wet room worked well for my elderly parent and with no steps into the property and parking immediately outside it was perfect. There's so much to see and do in the area, we had a great stay.
What a lovely cottage and location, fresh flowers, wine and biscuits on arrival, the owner was very helpful and friendly. The property was very clean and comfortable and plenty of parking space, large gardens and fields to walk our dog. Very peaceful and relaxing and just a short distance from the shops, we will definitely come back here again.
The cottage is in a wonderful location and looks beautiful on the pictures but thats where the good stops.
Electricity is coin operated so no coins - no heat - no light you get the picture. In all my travels around the globe I have never seen this kind of system used. For the price per night it felt like a scam.
The couch was clearly second hand and smelled, better word is wafted, of very significant body odor. Not baby fresh skin, but dirty grungy old man smell. Worse that a pair of week old gym socks left in the boot of a sun baked car.
The beds are catastrophically soft. It felt like you were going to sing to the depths of the Mariana Trench and keep going.
As you know Wales is very picturesque, but coming to the cottage in the evenings was a massive disappointment.
A really comfortable house with everything we needed, a very warm welcome when we arrived wine, flowers and welsh cakes, what more can you ask? Very central for visiting attractions in South Wales.
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!
