Description

A delightful, spacious terraced cottage, in the heart of the old mining village of Cwmgors, 6 miles from Ammanford, at the base of the picturesque Black Mountain. Lovingly restored with great attention to detail, with warm, welcoming accommodation, this charming cottage offers a cosy sitting room, a well-equipped, sunny kitchen with dining area, and three attractive, comfortable bedrooms. The pretty garden has a patio area as well as a meadow garden, which has an abundance of wild flowers, attracting many birds and butterflies. There are views of Black Mountain from the garden, making it a lovely spot for outdoor dining. This wonderful cottage lies at the crossroads of four areas of natural beauty; to the east you can be at the peak of the Black Mountain in the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons) within half an hour and to the west lies Swansea Bay, the Mumbles and the stunning Gower coastline. The epic and romantic castles of Carmarthenshire lie just 20 minutes away to the north, whilst the hauntingly beautiful Vale of Neath, and its waterfalls, lie very close by to the south. A convenient, relaxing base, and a wonderful cottage for a memorable family holiday.
Nestling at the base of the imposing Black Mountain, the old mining village of Cwmgors provides visitors with a shop, pub and an award-winning fish and chip shop. Great walking routes are nearby, not only through the Black Mountain scenery but also in the Amman Valley. With its vast moorlands, prehistoric burial sites and medieval castles this wonderful landscape acts as the gateway to the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons). Just six miles away and boasting a variety of shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants is the bustling market town of Ammanford whilst the larger town of Neath is also close by. The horseracing track at Tairgwaith holds regular race meetings from March to September and has one of only two purpose built, all-weather trotting tracks. To the south are the fantastic beaches of the Welsh coastline, making this a holiday destination for everyone.

‘On the positive side, the owner left a lovely welcome pack for us on arrival. The village is in a good location with regards to local places of interest. However, we did have some issues. The photographs online are very misleading. When we visited, the garden was overgrown and there was a pile of bricks where the BBQ was supposed to be. The view from the end of the garden is not uninterrupted as stated, there are now farm buildings and wind turbines to be seen. The details state that the cottage is on an A road and some noise may be heard. The road is about 10 feet away from the front door and is used by heavy goods lorries all day long. All the bedrooms are on the roadside of the property and consequently we couldn't open the windows due to noise and fumes. As the weather was very hot this made for an uncomfortable holiday as no fans were provided. The kitchen wasn't very clean and overall the property needs quite a bit of maintenance. In our opinion the area isn’t an ideal location for a holiday let.’

‘I spent New Years Eve and a few more days at Lothlorien Cottage. I was amazed how nice it was (better than on the pictures). The size of the house was just perfect. Usually when you say cottage, I imagine a huge house. This one was not. But it was perfect and cosy. You can find everything you need inside - from cups and plates, to washing machine and tumble dryer. And just to mention welcome pack - bottle of champagne and box of shortbread, which was a very nice touch. Cottage was clean and tidy. Garden is beautiful as well, although we couldn't enjoy it as much as it was raining non-stop. I can only imagine how beautiful it is in summer. Due to the bad weather we could't explore Brecon Beacon, but we had a chance to see a tiny bit of it. The cottage is on the edge of the national park. We managed to see a few sheep as well as a few horses, which was a big attraction for us. I chosen this cottage because the owner was very helpful when I called to ask for details. She is very polite lady, she made our stay unforgettable. She sent me all maps and information pack to ensure that we have a good time. She also sent me an welcome email on the first day as well as goodbye email on our last day. That was very nice. I would definitely go back and I would deeply recommend this place.’

‘We had a lovely week in this welcoming cottage. It was clean, comfortable, well-equipped and large enough to comfortably accommodate our family of four. Other than a dishwasher (I'm being lazy!), the kitchen had everything you'd need if you wanted to eat at home, including a smoothie-maker and slow cooker. If you'd rather not cook, there's a Chinese, Indian and fish and chips within walking distance. There's plenty of books and games to choose from in the evenings, and the free Wi-Fi was very welcome. Linen and towels were provided, and the bathroom was large, with a bath and shower overhead (you have to practise to get the temperature right!). There is a lovely garden to the back - although we didn't quite have garden weather! - and views of the hills behind. Although the cottage is terraced, the walls are very thick (with the added advantage of keeping the heat in), so we didn't hear anything from our neighbours (and hopefully they didn't hear us!). The welcome pack awaiting us in the kitchen was a lovely touch. Although perhaps not situated in the prettiest village, there are some lovely walks from the cottage, and the village is well-equipped with grocery stores and take-aways. It is also a great base from which to explore lots of south Wales, including Dan Yr Ogof caves, Swansea, Carren Cennen castle, Pen Y Fan, the Mumbles, Rhosilli and the rest of the Gower peninsula. All in all, we had a lovely week, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lothlorien Cottage.’

‘Although it doesn't look much from the front Lothlorien Cottage is tastefully decorated inside & is very comfortable. It has a well equipped kitchen & a lovely bathroom. From the back the cottage is charming with a beautiful garden which is peaceful & has a more rural feel. The village has all the basic amenities & we had some lovely trips out to beautiful beaches on the Gower, Castles & mountains. There are also some nice pubs not too far away. I would stay there again when I next visit my family in Wales. What I liked best was the comfortable, nicely decorated & furnished home & the lovely garden. What I liked least was no dish washer and an open fire place would be nice to have if you stayed in cooler weather.’

‘A very clean, very well equipped cottage affording a restful ambience yet being not too far to reach the South Wales and The Gower attractions. A thank you to the Sykes agent who told us about the possibility of road traffic noise but we did not find this an actual problem during our stay. Yet another successful holiday experience for us thanks to the good information and ease of finding out about Sykes cottages and the on-line ease of securing the holiday.’
