We had a great time staying at Ysgubor Tawe for a much-needed post-lockdown break. Good communications in advance concerning new procedures and a lovely welcome pack on arrival, also lots of useful extras provided by the owner. The accommodation was great for us (2 adults + 2 teenagers); double beds and ensuite bathrooms in every bedroom plus a well-equipped kitchen, and a spacious open plan downstairs all in very good condition and scrupulously clean. We brought bikes with us and were able to use the summerhouse for storage. There is a nice cycle track up and down the valley from Pontardawe, though the hill back up to the farm from the town is a real leg stretcher! Lots of things to do nearby; Swansea and the Gower beaches aren’t too far away, also the Dan-yr-Ogof caves and more cycling and walking in the Afan forest. On the inevitable wet day, the accommodation was spacious enough for us all to just relax in. All in all, highly recommended.

Past Customer,

Wonderful! The five fields were incredibly to exercise my dog. Loved the outside and inside and visited on one of the windiest and wettest weeks ever. The host and house is incredible.
