“Excellent - we'll be back soon”
Reviewed October 7, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We've stayed in a lot of self catering cottages but this is definitely the best to-date.

Thank you Dawn for providing all the home-from-home touches. The kitchen contained all the condiments, foil, cling film etc you could want. Bedding, towels, soap and toilet paper all provided. Not only that but Dawn left us a welcome basket of chocolates, drinks and welsh cakes.

When we arrived dawn came to welcome us and again to say goodbye. Nice personal touches.

Thanks.

“Best of the best”
Reviewed October 2, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed in 4 rental cottages over the month we were in England/Wales and this was by far the best we encountered (and not the most expensive) It was like living in a fully furnished house, with everything included (including soap which was missing in all others). The attention to detail with the conversion was obvious as was the personal touch that Dawn has put into the property. A lovely welcome basket greeted us. If you are looking for a place to stay around the Swansea area, don't go past this one. ITS A BEAUT

We are absolutely delighted you had a lovely break at Ysgubor Hir, thank you for taking the time to tell us about it. It is wonderful to hear you had everything you could have needed to hand there, indeed, like walking into a ready made 'home' for the holidays! We will be sure to pass your compliments along to the owner and hope you return again soon.

“Christmas at the barn”
Reviewed December 27, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

This Holiday let was excellent. This barn conversion is done out to a very high specification. We had a warm welcome & very homely feel to the cottage welcome gift & flowers too. Wonderful way to spend Christmas with our family in the area. Comfortable clean and well laid out felt like being at home definitely would book again soon. Dawn & Brian the host could not do enough to make our stay more comfortable. This is a hidden Gem away from it all peaceful & restful.

A lovely cottage filled with all the home comforts one could wish for, and finished to a high standard set in a beautiful peaceful countryside setting. The owner is very helpful and welcoming presenting a lovely cottage plus welcome pack and providing a wonderful start to your stay in Pontarddulais.
I would undoubtedly recommend this cottage to anyone wishing for a peaceful break away in Wales, the owners are very friendly helpful and welcoming.

5 Star in our opinion, highly recommend

“Large, lovely, beautifully done”

My husband and I spent a week here, accompanied by my cousin. We hosted a family and friends reunion (five people) here one afternoon, and the cottage was large, nicely furnished, and had a fully equipped kitchen, perfect for our special event. Dawn, the owner, could not have been nicer and more helpful. Things that mattered especially to us besides the obvious: good wi-fi, heated floors, good insulation, meaning that this cottage would be comfy even on the coldest days. Be sure to get good directions. It is not far off the M4 but is tucked away a bit.

“Fantastic recently renovated cottage”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed here over the New year period. The cottage has recently been completed and was therefore in excellent condition. The owners have finished the renovation to a high standard, whilst retaining traditional cottage features. Most of the cottage is on one level (with only a couple of steps), so was great for letting the children run free.

The owners met us personally on our arrival and left a lovely hamper for us filled with locally sourced produce, which was a really nice touch.

We would love to stay here again and would recommend it to friends.
