Glyn Cynwal Isaf Cottage

Visited by Tripadvisor
Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Swansea, Swansea County, Southern Wales, Wales
Luxury cottage with 5* grading from Visit Wales. In peaceful setting on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, within easy reach of the Gower Coast. 3 bedrooms sleeping 6 people, plus cot. Private garden, beautiful mountain views, jacuzzi bath and well-equipped kitchen.

Well away from the main road, with no through traffic, the cottage offers a peaceful atmosphere, with only the occasional wild rabbit or woodpecker to disturb you. Sit and enjoy dinner or drinks outside on a summer's evening on the paved and lit terrace, relax with breakfast in the sunny living room, or curl up in the whirlpool bath with a book. It's the perfect setting for your break, whether it's a long luxurious weekend or for an energetic week of biking and walking.
