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 fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Rees Cottage is a very clean, well decorated and comfortable cottage. The sofas and bed are really comfy. The flooring throughout the downstairs of the cottage were perfect for us with two dogs, so easy to keep clean. The enclosed garden perfect for letting the dogs out securely and the common across the road was perfect for a quick walk of the dogRead mores before going of to explore wales. The owners left a superb hamper for us which was really appreciated. Also fresh flower a really good touch. Hide

Extremely well planned and thought out cottage with everything you could expect and more. Well designed bedroom and lounge with a cosy, homey feel and dog friendly with a reasonable bit of space in the garden and a field opposite the house. Only small downside is slight traffic noise at night but nothing that can be helped on the owners part.

Very comfortable and Well appointed cottage within easy reach of M4. Stylishly decorated and every comfort thought of. We had a really good time and would recommend this cottage to anyone. However the location wasn't picturesque but was within 30 mins of beautiful beaches, coastal walks and historic gardens and houses.
