Very comfortable cottage with all the mod cons. Easy to get to the coast, Cardiff, Brecons and Gower. Lovely welcome pack on arrival. One of the most comfy beds you can get. A week is not enough time to see everything.

This was, for us, the perfect cottage in the perfect location. We could walk to Kenfig Nature Reserve with its amazing orchids, and at the end of the day just a few yards away was the Angel pub and restaurant. We could even simply sit in the cottage and watch the wildlife from the window. A huge ASDA was just a short drive away. The bed was super-cRead moreomfortable, and the whole cottage was equipped with comfort and convenience in mind. Hide
