Charming cottage full of character and superior comfort. So warm and cosy, perfect for walking the Wales Coast Path and exploring the Margam Park attractions.

Reviewed by Samantha Jane, 11th October 2019

This is just a beautiful place to stay, steeped in history, access to the whole of Margam Park. You can park right outside, the bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen are to a very high standard. The lounge furniture was a little small to relax on but the beds were lovely

Lovely cottage in lovely surroundings. Everything you need included in the cottage, on arrival there were cups and saucers ready with tea/ coffee for a drink and a welcome pack for our dog. Loved having access to the grounds especially when the park was closed, our dog also loved it. Peter from Friends of Margam very informative and helpful. Lots oRead moref nice places to visit I would recommend Aberavon beach. Would certainly return. Hide

Nice cottage, nice local area, private door to Margam Park was the star feature. There is enough to do in the park to keep busy for a week without going anywhere else.
