The pictures don't do Deer View justice. It is better than it looks on line! The location is great with a cracking pub less than a 5 min walk.
The whole family and Duke were incredibly, friendly and welcoming. The drinks were free flowing and much fun was had and that was just the first night! I cannot recommend this place highly enough

It was easy to find and the owners were very accommodating. The whole experience was calm and chilled but lots to do if you wanted.

“Utterly Fabulous! Can't Wait to go Back!”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

I have travelled extensively, but this has been my all time favourite, and can't wait to go back back next year.
The electric gates when you arrive make you feel tucked away and safe, especially if you have smaller children. The side access to the properly and when you park the car feels nice and private.
There is a small decked area outside the door with table and chairs/bench, which then leads out onto an amazing huge deck with an umbrella'd summer glass table, this over looks the amazing grounds, where there are sheep, and a pond and across to another proper a deer park. Both my 5yo and 12yo were in love with this property and spend many a time with the binoculars left in the room upstairs.

The owners were just adorable, they gave the children food to feed the fish and had no worries about them running around the lawn, or picking the apples off the apple tree... (btw the apples make the most delicious apple crumble, we made 2!!).

We were home in the UK for a funeral and we were receiving grandparents and little cousins for drinks and dinner, and this was no problem at all. They were made to feel v welcomed and the owners spent time talking to us all explaining their future plans for the property.

The accommodation is lovely, the sitting room is cosy and sunny, and the children we super happy to find entertainment and DVDs there. The kitchen is v large and has all amities ( dishwasher/washing machine/toaster etc), there is a large dining table that seats 6 easily.

Upstairs is beautiful, it has a cottagey feel. There is plenty of cupboard and drawer space, also hairdryer/iron etc. The bathrooms are really lovely, new, clean, large and the rain shower is to die for! There was extra towels and pillows provided too. The bed was super comfortable also!

We thoroughly enjoyed waking through the field to the lanes, and also the Lovely Aubrey Arms pub.... well worth a visit. Great for people who like to jog too!

By Car - Close by there is a fab equestrian centre, a mini village shop 1 min away, a massive tescos and M&S 10 mins away.. and as you are on the A48 you have great access to either Cardiff or Swansea/Gower way.Theres also fruit picking, and petting farms etc, and a trip to Margam park/castle is not too far. Ogmore By Sea and The Mumbles are also accessible and fun for a beach/walking day trip.

This would be a lovely romantic get away for a couple, a great fun stay for a family with younger or older children, whether wanting to relax or head out and be adventurous!

The children didn't want to leave, and neither did we. I will be back next year for a longer period and look forward o catching up with the Evans's.

We had a very enjoyable family holiday at Deer View Lodge. We stayed for four nights but it certainly was not enough time to see and do everything so we plan to return.
Our three children equally enjoyed their stay. Daniela and Martin were great hosts and made plenty of brilliant suggestions of where we could visit during our stay. We highly recommend a family stay at Deer View Lodge.

“Fantastic Weekend!”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed in Deer View for three nights whilst attending a Wedding in the area. The property was beautifully laid out and equipped with everything you could possibly need (in hind sight we'd have taken a children's stair gate - but not the owners fault!) The garden and decking area were lovely, receiving lots of sun throughout the day and the views were stunning.

The owners were really helpful, being extremely understanding of a 10.30pm arrival (Bank Holiday traffic!) and took the time to recommend local attractions / places worth visiting.

Thank you so much for everything, we hope to visit again.. :)

“Great Location”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Fabulous location, access to motorway, coast and city centre. We received a warm welcome from the Evans family, all the rooms were spotless and beds really comfy. We even had our own terrace area with fabulous views over the dear farm. We were walking distance to a few great pubs, serving good food. Definitely recommend the Dear View and would return.
Thank you to the Evans family for a great stay. Frances & Ad
