Perfect for family and friends gatherings. Sorry no Stags or Hens.

Swansea Valley Holiday Cottages are situated in the grounds of the historic Plas Cilybebyll estate. The picturesque River Clydach runs through the manor house complex with cottages which are dotted around the courtyard, farmyard and gardens.

The group of converted estate outbuildings make an ideal base for a family get together - the courtyard cottages are traditional whilst the farmyard cottages are very contemporary and minimalist in style. All the cottages are renovated to a very high standard with each one having their own unique features. Bwthyn Y Saer is all ground level. Y Stabl has a log fire, four poster bed and riverside hot tub. Lloc Llo has a riverside terrace. Ty Gambo sleeps 6 and has its own enclosed garden with barbecue. Five of the cottages are pet friendly and all of them have parking right outside the cottage door.

Extensive private grounds include a tennis court and lawn areas with seating and views over the surrounding parkland. The setting is peaceful and very relaxing - the sound of birdsong around the cottages, sheep grazing the parkland and the tinkling mountain river that runs through the property.

The cottages enjoy a superb central South Wales location - ideal for seeing the many and varied attractions that South Wales has to offer - the Brecon Beacons mountains, Gower Peninsula, Waterfall Country, Carreg Cennen Castle, the National Showcaves and the cities of Swansea and Cardiff to name but a few. The cottages have a very famous black folder in them with suggested itineraries and lots of local travel tips and information. There is also a book that accompanies a farm trail which starts on your cottage doorstep and takes you up the mountain where there are panoramic views of the Swansea Valley, Brecon Beacons, Bristol Channel and on a clear day Narnia!

There are pubs and restaurants in the nearby villages - a major 24 hour supermarket just over a mile away. Our free WiFi network is excellent and there is good mobile phone signal at the farm.
