We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Ivy Cottage. The added bonus was the key to the park outside opening and closing hours.

Beautiful location. Lovely cottage. Only drawback is random people coming into property asking about Abbey etc.

The cottage was a good base to explore the area of South Wales. Great property on the edge of Margam Park with access to the Park that we really enjoyed when the Park was closed to the General public. A well equipped kitchen and living area downstairs with the 3 bedrooms upstairs. Not often that we would consider returning to a holiday property butRead more Margam Cottage is certainly one that we would. Hide

Great Location with access to Margam Park fantastic, however there is a working church where the car park space is & we did get blocked in one day & also found some-one from the church using the space. Stairs in the cottage are quite steep & might be unsuitable for the elderly/young

Extraordinary! A comfortable and delightful mix of the new and luxurious and the old. The bonus is the key to the gate into the park itself. This gives access even after the park has closed to the public; the parkland, the hillside, the grounds of the castle, orangery, and lake with views towards the sea, all to yourself. There is no doubt that we Read morewill come again. Hide
