Although this cottage is wonderfully situated for enjoying all the famous attractions South Wales has to offer, you may simply wish to spend lazy days enjoying the cottage and over a hundred acres of private grounds with walks from the cottage door.

“A little piece of paradise in a chaotic world.

Unlike many other self catering cottages on the market, Hafod y Wennol comes with over a hundred acres of private grounds which guests are free to explore.

  • Large lawn area with picnic benches
  • Enjoy a BBQ under the giant beech trees
  • Watch lambs playing in the paddock
  • The accommodation has a large lawn area with views over the sheep grazed parkland – many of our guests love sitting under the giant beech trees, enjoying a glass of wine and watching the lambs play under a setting sun.

This is a perfect base for a family holiday in South Wales, we rode horses, cycled, walked, visited waterfalls, shopped, spent an evening on the beach, saw castle, a full day on the beach (Caswell Bay, Gower recommended) went swimming, played cards, went bat hunting and still more to do. So well be back. The Closes from Haslemere in Surrey
