We are very pleased to announce that Heol Giedd was awarded Certificate of Excellence for 2018 and is in line to receive a similar Certificate from Trip Advisor for 2019. Although this 150 year old cottage was awarded 4 stars to sleep three people, extra sleeping is available by the use of a double futon in the sitting room. The futon would need to be folded back after use to enable the sitting room to be used. There is also a small fold out bed in the second bedroom that would accommodate a child. Bedding is provided to cover all sleeping arrangements. The bathroom is on the ground floor. The property was totally renovated a few years ago and has been owned by the same family for at least 150 years.

The property was totally renovated a few years ago and has been owned by the same family for at least 150 years. Heol Giedd is a stone built cottage on the edge of busy village of Ystradgynlais, a short distance away from Brecon National Park, with the River Tawe meandering outside the front door. The centrally heated property , is fully equipped with washing machine, dryer, full size cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, bedlinen, towels, cutlery , china, kitchen utensils to facilitate five people if required. It is ideally situated for walking the Brecon Beacons, exploring the caves or taking in the beautiful beaches of the Gower Peninsula. The village of Ystradgynlais has all you might need for a self catering holiday and came first in Wales in Bloom 2018 and has been invited to enter Britain in Bloom 2019. Local shops, pubs and eateries are within walking distance, and can provide almost everything you might require including film showings, etc., in the Welfare Hall (look out for 'What's on at the Welfare Hall' advertising banners) but larger supermarkets are a short drive away. Neighbouring villages also provide a selection of pubs and restaurants. There is a small private garden, ideal if the weather is good for sitting in the sun with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.More

Interaction with guests
We, the owners, do not live near the property, but are always in contact if there is a problem and someone nearby will endeavour to sort. Keys will probably be sent to you a week or so before your stay by recorded delivery, or if this is not convenient for you someone will be at the cottage to meet and greet you. Lots of things to do in the area. Good walking country - the cottage is situated very near to the Brecon National Park with its caves, waterfalls, etc. In the opposite direction is the town of Swansea and the lovely beaches of the Gower Peninusula. Many information leaflets under the coffee table in the cottage.

About the neighbourhood
Ystradgynlais is in the Swansea Valley and was once a busy mining town. Mines now closed but it remains a busy, vibrant village with shops and eateries to meet the needs of most people. Larger supermarkets are a a short drive away. A walk from the cottage leads to the pretty village of Cwm Giedd. Follow the road up through the village to the end of Cwm Giedd and you will reach a pretty picnic area alongside the river, which in turn leads onto more walking footpaths. There is now a vibrant Ystradgynlais Shopping site, find it on Facebook. Lots of information posted about what is going on in the area.
Getting around
There is a fairly regular bus service during the day into Swansea, Brecon, Ammanford, Neath, etc. There is a bus stop not far from the cottage, about 200 yards along the road, but better, more frequent services can be caught at the crossroads in the village.
