Those who have discovered this charming Georgian coach house spend many happy days exploring the private countryside that surrounds this exceptional self catering cottage.

  • Sit beneath the canopy of the giant beeches on the courtyard lawn to enjoy wonderful sunsets over the sheep grazed parkland (the lambs love to play in the evenings).
  • Relax in the private back garden, listening to birdsong and the delightful sounds of the babbling brook which is home to wild trout, dippers and grey wagtails. A little gate and steps lead down into the stream if you fancy a paddle!
  • If you fancy a walk, follow the waymarkers from your cottage, along the river and into a beautiful oak woodland. Unlike many self catering cottages, Y Stabl comes with over a hundred acres of private countryside.
  • This has been our first trip to South Wales but it won't be our last. There is so much to see and do you can only "dip your toes in the water". We visited Mumbles Head, Rhossili (voted the best beach in the world in a recent poll), wetlands centre, Botanic Gardens of Wales, Cardiff by train, waterfalls and the tin works at Aberdulais. Today we walked the Pals Farm Trail from the cottage. The cottage is very comfortable and we especially liked the private little garden with a variety of visiting birds. We will be back!

  • As you enter Y Stabl, you step into a beautiful farmhouse-style kitchen which looks out onto the back garden.  The kitchen is well equipped with basics such as tea, coffee and milk.  The oven and hob are electric.  There is a fridge, washer/dryer and dishwasher. The dining table is oak and the worktops granite.
  • The lounge is roomy and cosy with a door that opens to the back garden, enclosed by a picket fence and sitting on the bank of a beautiful mountain stream. The graden has a family-sized picnic table.  This area is a real highlight of the accommodation – the banks of the stream are beautiful with bluebells, daffodils, hazel trees and rhododendrons all growing wild.  You may spot wild trout in the stream and the heron sometimes pays a visit!
  • The lounge is cosy with wooden flooring, a comfortable sofa and woodburning stove. A complimentary basket of chopped wood is provided. The famous information folder lives in the lounge and it’s a great place to plan your daytrips with a little help from our suggested itinereries – there is so much to see in South Wales.
  • The downstairs toilet is in the corner of the hallway. An ironing board may be found beneath the stairs.
  • Historic images of the estate in days gone by adorn the stairwell. At the top of the stairs a window overlooks the stream – it’s a great spot to watch for wild trout leaping out of the water. To the right is the bathroom which has a bath and over-bath shower.
  • There are two bedrooms upstairs. The twin room has exposed beams and looks out at the courtyard lawn. The master bedroom has a romantic four-poster bed, exposed beams and has views of the old walled garden of the estate and the Plas Cilybebyll mansion house. The room is filled with light from an overhead skylight.
  • Full viewing equipment is there for your enjoyment with flat screen HDTV, Freesat, DVD player, broadband, radio/CD player, plus a stock of DVDs,and a selection of books, maps to borrow, cards and games.
  • We have had a wonderful stay at Y Stabl! It has been the perfect cosy retreat and great for local walks and within reach of some wonderful beaches like Rhossili, Three Cliffs and the Mumbles. The cottage was really comfortable, and we especially enjoyed the hot tub! We will definitely recommend to family and friends.

  • Y Stabl is a very comfortable, well equipped cottage which has been a great base from which to explore the surrounding area. We have done a number of beautiful waterfall walks. We visited the Gower and Rhossili Bay is gorgeous. After a long days walk, we enjoyed sitting in our peaceful little garden with a cuppa, listening to the stream rolling by and watching the birds. Was very pleased to spot a nuthatch, one of our favourites. We also enjoyed the Plas Farm trail and the accompanying books and pictures are very interesting.

  • We've had such a lovely week, 2nd visit and will most definitely be returning. So glad we got to do the walk around the farm. Some lovely sites. Even the two teenagers appreciated the scenery. Great cottage with a welcoming atmosphere. Hot tub a real bonus! Had a very relaxing holiday. Many thanks.
