About the neighbourhood
Many child friendly and rainy day activities in easy range including local climbing centre, Swansea LC2, swansea Maritime Museum and the National Botanic Gardens. The cottage location allows easy access to most of S Wales and offers variety for all families, locations and weather. Located between the Gower Beaches and Brecon Beacons near to Waterfall country. Add a castle or two, Caves, Country Parks some museums and wet weather attractions and you quickly fill a week or two!
Getting around
Due to the places that guests come to see in Wales and Seasonal weather, then a car is essential. That said, it is possible for the driver to have a day off and still explore, but with a greater degree of planning than the freedom that our own vehicle provides. Neath Train station is 4 miles away, easy parking and an hourly service to Cardiff makes for a full day trip either to the city centre Castle, Art Gallery & Museum or a further short boat trip to Cardiff Bay. Or to the West the train travels down to the market town of Carmarthen and beyond. Park an easy 10 minutes away by car, catch a bus up to Brecon, a very picturesque journey from the Neath valley and over into the Upper Swansea valley through the Beacons National Park.
