Families love having the freedom of extensive private grounds including a bluebell woodland and hillside areas with panoramic views. This Georgian coach house overlooks an old estate courtyard, a lawn area with picnic table and extensive parkland.

The cottage has a private lawn area on the bank of the River Clydach - a wonderful place to sit and relax, watching the wildlife and listening to the babbling stream as it meanders its way down to Swansea Bay. If you fancy a stroll, follow the waymarkers from your cottage, along the river and into a beautiful oak woodland.
