Traditional miner’s cottage offering five-star accommodation for two guests: an idyllic romantic retreat in the South Wales village of Bryncethin, situated between the cities of Swansea and Cardiff.

This property is situated in a village location just three miles from the town of Brigend in South Wales. There is plenty to see and do in the area, whatever visitors interests are. Those who enjoy scenic walks in beautiful landscapes, for example, may want to spend some time exploring the Merthyr Mawr Sand Dunes, or perhaps pay a visit to Bryngarw Country Park. Or maybe a trip to the seaside resort of Porthcawl is more your style, with its seven beaches, traditional seafront fun fair, and Grand Pavilion Theatre. Those who enjoy shopping, dining, and tasting some of the local culture, will love the fact that both Cardiff and Swansea are within easy reach of the property, with both of them being around twenty miles away.

A gate from the pavement leads guests to the front door of this charming five-star cottage, bringing them directly to the welcoming lounge/diner which has been tastefully finished in an attractive shabby-chic style and offers comfortable seating, a TV with Sky channels, and a window-side dining table. The kitchen has been finished in a complementary style to the main living area and offers an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, wine cooler, and washing machine. Stairs lead up to the restful, elegantly styled bedroom on the first floor, where a king-size bed sits under the exposed beams. The bathroom, also found on the first floor, offers a shower-over-bath and WC.

A door from the kitchen leads out to enclosed garden to the rear of the property, which is mainly set to lawn and has a raised decked area with garden furniture in the centre. There is roadside parking available on the street in front of the cottage.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Not knowing what to expect we found a "welcome basket" on our arrival. Very nice gesture and great cottage, so many could learn from how the owner does it so well.

This is a lovely, small, cosy cottage with original low ceiling beams and a modern shabby chic decor. The property is very clean and highly maintained by the owners who have done their best to ensure that the visitors have a comfortable stay. The property is located in a residential area but the beaches and shops are within a short drive away.
