With a cosy sitting room, a well-equipped sunny kitchen with dining area, and three comfortable bedrooms – able to sleep five people in one double, one twin and one single room – this is a great house for families, couples, or a group of friends.

In the heart of the old mining village of Cwmgors, six miles from Ammanford is this charming terraced cottage. The property has been restored to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The cottage also has a patio area as well as a beautiful meadow garden that attracts many birds and butterflies with its abundance of wild flowers. From this wonderful outdoor location there are incredible views of the Black Mountain, providing a magnificent backdrop for outdoor dining.


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.

Clean and comfortable. Welcome pack is always a lovely surprise. The garden is great if you have dogs - leave a bowl out for the Hedgehog.

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.
