Have stayed at 2 of Rachel and David's cottages now a number of times and at all times of the year, short breaks and a week here and there. The setting is idyllic, very peaceful, the cottages are like a home from home but better. You are left alone (unless you need help!) The information folders in the cottages are very useful, beds are excellent, Wi-Fi is included and the TV's have been upgraded. It is a perfect location for visiting most of South Wales or just to sit and enjoy a glass of wine by your cottage. We will be back.

Our week at Plas Farm was a delight. We enjoyed the cozy cottage and found the well equipped kitchen very convenient, the beds, cozy and comfy, and the living room a perfect spot to relax, read, and listen to the patter of rain on the window. This is a great location for long walks and drives to wonderful natural and historic sites. The Bowens provided detailed information to pursue many avenues of interest which made for a terrific getaway.

We have been coming to Plas Farm every year now since 2007 and on a few occasions twice a year staying in the Ty Cerbyd cottage. The cottage is extremely comfortable, fully equipped and is like a home from home with everything you need. It is so peaceful and relaxing and the location of the farm is perfect as it seems you are miles away from everything yet only 5 minutes, by car, away from the lovely town of Pontardawe. We bring our dogs who just love going for walks in the woodland and exploring the surrounding countryside. The cottage has a lovely courtyard next to the stream running through the farm and it is a real treat watching the the wide varirty of wild birds which come and feed on a homemade platform hanging over the river. You can also get Buzzards and Red Kites flying over the woodland and farm which is really special. We highly recommend the cottages at Plas Farm The owners, Rachel and David are really really lovely people who make you feel welcome and are extremely helpful especially when you get a bat in your bedroom as we did once !!

Thanks Helen for your kind comments! Yes - I remember the bat - I stubbed my toe trying to get it to fly out of the window!! Just in case any other readers are wondering - don't worry! It's only happened once in 16 years!

Nice short break in early April. Quiet location but within easy reach of local provision stores.
Spent a few days with the family and grandchildren on this sheep farm. Pleasant walks in the
area, as well as other interesting venues to visit..

Went with husb, and 2 children aged 10 and 6 and stayed in Y Stabl, mid April. It was great for outdoor play, little stream at the back of the cottage, walks, plenty of sheep and lambs (they were quiet at night, so easy to sleep). The accommodation was great: modern, fully equipped kitchen, for meals with ourselves and my parents (who stayed next door); cosy wood burner in the living room; four-poster bed in master bedroom; and a powerful, hot, shower. It was also fine for access to Swansea and the LC2 swimming, Waterfront Museum etc. and the Breacon Beacons, complete with Showcaves. Thanks to Rachel for making our stay so comfortable.
