What to do while you're here:
A very pretty woodland wildlife pond (securely fenced for child safety) and a pleasant pub are within walking distance. The Palleg Golf Course is 3 fields over or a short drive, and there are numerous walks from the front door.
Cwm Clydach RSPB reserve is a wonderful place to see all sorts of rare wildlife and the riverside and woodland walks are lovely.
The breathtaking Porth-yr-Ogof (or 'gateway to the cave') caves which boasts Wales' largest cave opening and is an excellent place to learn more about caving and perhaps give it a try yourself.
Henrhyd Falls and Aberdulais Falls are both worth a visit. The falls themselves are stunning and make sure you visit the National Trust Aberdulais Tin Works.

The Southern Brecon Beacons are a magical expanse of mountains, lakes and Ystradfellte's waterfall country of caves, rushing rivers and steeply wooded gorges. There's plenty to do here. Discover the mountains by foot, bike (this is the home of the fabulous Bike Park Wales) or even train on the Brecon Mountain Railway. Sample whisky (and gin) to rival even the finest Scotch at Penderyn Distillery, or have a day out at the spectacular caving system and dinosaur attraction at Dan yr Ogof. The acclaimed beaches in the Gower and Carmarthenshire are within an hour of many of the cottages. Read more about Southern Brecon Beacons
