Amazing stay in the countryside. The cottage was comfortable, homely, and kept to a very high standard. I had a small back garden with a river running next to it. There was two bedrooms and the main bedroom was so nice with a skylight and a small cottage style window on the ground. There was complimentary tea and coffee and...

Wonderful cottage set around three other cottages, peaceful, relaxing, dogs and child friendly and fabulous rural walks. The perfect place to get away from it all. Cottage was well equipped with all mod cons and owners could not be nicer, the most obliging hosts I have ever met.

Hi both, It was a pleasure to meet you and so glad you enjoyed your stay at the farm. The trails are lovely at the moment - with the daffodils in full bloom and Spring in the air.

We stayed for one night this weekend, very pleased we were able to book a single night. The cottage was warm, clean and welcoming when we arrived. The guide book is something to behold, about the most comprehensive guide I have ever seen!! The owners were friendly and extremely helpful. All in all, a great place to stay, highly recommended.

We were only there for three days but I cannot say strongly enough -- this has become one of my favorite places in the world. The cottages are impeccable. The hosts are excellent. The setting made me want to quit my job and move to Pontedarwe immediately. It was relaxing -- lovely strolls, cozy places to read in the cottage,...

The cottage is nicely laid out, well furnished, and very clean. Around 15 minutes drive from Swansea. Our cottage was dog friendly, and there is lots of woodland around to enjoy.We took the...

Stayed at Ty Stabl only for 2 nights as my sister works nights in Swansea as a nurse so me, my Mum and Neice explored as she slept!!! Lovely cottage and waterfall at the back was just beautiful. So peaceful and lovely sitting out with a cuppa looking at the lambs. A true hidden treasure.

Just returned from a 7 night stay at y stabl. Cottage was lovely, clean and warm which was good because as is always the case in Wales it rained every day. The Plas Farm Trail is very pretty but do take walking boots/ wellies as it gets pretty muddy. Also a visit to the Henrhyd Falls waterfall is a must....

Happy to hear you had a good time at the cottage and yes, Henrhyd Falls is great - so exhilarating to stand behind a waterfall - always at their best after some liquid sunshine!

Stayed in January 2016 with our two young children. Fantastic peaceful location, just a short drive from the M4. The downstairs of the cottage had everything you could need, including a fully equipped kitchen, dining table, lovely sitting room, cloakroom. Upstairs featured a double bedroom, twin bedroom and bathroom. The rooms are large and ooze character with original features and...
