Ivy Cottage is beautiful and its situation to Margam Park is just wonderful especially for early morning or late evening walks. It is exceptionally well equipped. It is easily accessible from the M4 and a good place to stay if you wish to explore The surrounding areas of Wales.

The cottage was wonderfully quiet yet very convenient for the M4. Access to the park at all hours through a private gate in the garden was a real bonus.

Fabulous, character cottage in a stunning and peaceful location. Facilities provided have been well thought out from bike storage and boot room to a welcome pack for your four legged friend. Amazing to have access to the park out of hours. Easy access to the M4 to visit the area.

We stayed at Ivy Cottage at the end of April. The Cottage and location were perfect, we brought the dog who loved walks in the park, especially early morning and last thing at night when we had the park to ourselves. We will definitely return.
