“The contemporary haven for a discerning active group.”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed as a group of 14 young guys in April 14 and used Depot Rd. to access the local trail centres of Glyncorrwg and Afan as well as the beach at Port Talbot.
Depot Rd. is an excellent example of how to organise accommodation for groups which naturally contain a broad mix of interests. The house is easily comfortable and entertaining enough in it's own right to keep some guests occupied at home whilst the rest go of exploring The Valleys. Suffice to say everyone was very complementary about the house during and after their stay and I am sure if another event looms that requires group accommodation we will be back.
Port Talbot/Cwmafan is a sad struggling area though, so as with most costal towns in South Wales you will need your own transport to get away into the hills.

“This place is great!”
Reviewed 26 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

A group of 10 people stayed for the weekend for my birthday, and from start to finish everything has been excellent. Absolutely loved the open plan living space, with super comfy sofas and chairs, a kitchen which has everything you need and more! The bedrooms are also spot on, clean, quiet and comfortable, all en-suite and cool with it. Every single one of my friends loved the place. I would definitely recommend this place for large groups, mountain bikers, walkers or just a place to relax and unwind. Ok, so the immediate location isn't picture perfect, but it's good enough, that's the only negative thing I can say, but really don't let that put you off.

“Superb accommodation and facilities for active groups”
Reviewed 20 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

person found this review helpful

Depot Rd. is among the best accommodation we have used over many years of group mountain bike trips throughout the UK. A great deal of thought and effort has obviously gone into planning and equipping the property to a very high standard. The large open plan living area, complete with massive sofas, huge dining table and doors onto an enclosed outdoor space makes for a great social area, where the entire group could relax following long days out on the bikes. Likewise the bedrooms were comfortable and en suite wet room style showers great. The underfloor heating also kept us toasty warm during our stay. Other thoughtful touches including a superbly efficient drying room (with deep sinks for rinsing muddy kit). Super secure bike storage/workshop facilities along with easy access to the trails at Afan make Depot Rd. a perfect choice for groups of mountain bikers or other outdoors people.

“Excellent base for Afan Mountain Biking”

A truly well thought out, equipped, spacious and stylish base for those wishing to experience the superb mountain biking trails of Afan forest park. You can ride to the trails directly from the house. Of special note is the drying room which is very effect for drying out your gear after a ride.

“The perfect mountain bike holiday property near Wales's best trails”
Reviewed 23 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The guy who runs this has clearly thought out every inch of the property and I cannot think of a more MTBiking friendly space to rent for a holiday - separate bike store with a cleaning area, fully spec-ed up washing and drying area for your clothes. Lovely underfloor heating to warm you up after a day in the saddle and a professional-standard kitchen which overlooks the lounge and dining aera. The showers are huge, the bedrooms nicely thought out too (with 'lounging' headrests, can you believe) and its has good WIFI throughout without the usual annoying blackspots. All round, brilliant.

“Second visit, brilliant!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Last time we went with a couple of other families, this time it was with nine cycling friends. Depot road is great fun to stay at, it's top quality accommodation, great facilities with loads of space and of course perfect for the Afan cycling routes.

“Fantastic location for Afan trail centre, mountain bike friendly, modern, comfortable and high quality accommodation.”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I stayed at Depot Rd with a group of mountain biker friends. The place is very high quality throughout, modern, clean and tidy. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, and there is a washing/drying room for dirty clothing plus a secure bike storage room. Fantastic accommodation, and very easy to get to the main Afan trail centre. Highly recomended indeed!
