A Riverside Holiday Cottage for Romantics

  • Nant Y Plas is perfect for a romantic break. Birdsong, a babbling brook, the giant Victorian bathtub and wonderful sense of place are just some of the things that appeal to those seeking a romantic bolthole.
  • The single level cottage has a stunning flagstone floor made from Welsh pennant sandstone. Underfloor heating is provided by renewable biomass energy.
  • The front door opens to a stylish contemporary kitchen and cosy lounge area. The room features a dramatic wooden ceiling, statement industrial lighting and exposed sandstone stonework that preserve the historic character of a building that was once a feed shelter for farm animals.
  • The kitchen has everything you will need – an electric cooker, a fridge, washer/dryer, microwave, dishwasher and basics such as milk, tea and coffee.
  • The lounge is intimate yet has an open and airy feel with a door that opens to the cottage garden. Look out for coal fossils in the flower bed wall and historic coping stones that glisten myriad colours in the sunlight. Cast from copper slag, they tell of a bygone era when Swansea was the copper smelting capital of the world.
  • The cottage garden consists of picketed lawn overlooking a riverside patio with bags of wow-factor.  A long length of glass balustrade makes for wonderful wildlife spotting opportunities – a real highlight for guests.
