“Second visit, brilliant!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Last time we went with a couple of other families, this time it was with nine cycling friends. Depot road is great fun to stay at, it's top quality accommodation, great facilities with loads of space and of course perfect for the Afan cycling routes.

“Fantastic location for Afan trail centre, mountain bike friendly, modern, comfortable and high quality accommodation.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I stayed at Depot Rd with a group of mountain biker friends. The place is very high quality throughout, modern, clean and tidy. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, and there is a washing/drying room for dirty clothing plus a secure bike storage room. Fantastic accommodation, and very easy to get to the main Afan trail centre. Highly recomended indeed!

“An incredible venue”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed at the Depot for a weekend of mountain biking at Afan. The location is great, just a few miles away from the cycling centres, and very easy to get to from London (straight down the M4 to Junction 40).

However, the real treat is the Depot itself - it is amazing. An large open plan living room and dining area with granite-topped kitchen, under-floor heating, log-burning stove, Wi-Fi, flat screen telly, 3 bedrooms (4 beds in each) each bedroom with en-suite wet-room shower, a drying room, safe storage for the bikes, and every room thoughtfully decorated. There is even a little outside area if the weather is nice. There was also a free Welsh beer in the fridge for each of us, and some other local delicacies upon our arrival.

Ewan and Michelle (the owners) are a pleasure to deal with.

“Better than anything I could have expected.”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Beautiful place and loved the layout with the kitchen and the smart TV was a bonus, couldn't have asked for a better place.
Being so close to the beach, Port Talbot is nice to walk around and close to Swansea, lovely walks around the place.
the kitchen comes equipped with everything you could need and shops are really close
Just a beautiful place overall, loved it and would to stop there again in the future

“Exceptional accommodation geared up perfectly for mountain bikers”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We were extremely impressed by Depot Rd when we visited in June. The accommodation has an amazing spacious kitchen and living area which was perfect for relaxing and socialising after a long ride. The drying room and bike stores were a valuable asset and the property was beautifully clean and tidy upon arrival. The owners are also extremely friendly and helpful. All in all we had a fab stay and definitely hope to visit again in the near future.

“Amazing Property - Perfect for large groups - Photos do not do it justice!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I booked Depot Road for a University Reunion (12 People) and all that attended would have to agree that this property is just perfect for a group getaway! This is for a number of reasons:
1) When we were arrived we were greeted with a welcome basket of beer, haribo and welsh cakes! spot on after a long journey!
2) The living areas are HUGE the photos just do not do it justice - with more than enough seating for 12+ adults!
3) The local area is great for walking/cycling - and only a half an hour drive to gorge walking and quad biking activities etc
4) The kitchen was well stocked, pots pans etc so easy to do on mass cooking
5) The property was really clean and the owners were really helpful with any queries I had!

All in all a lovely weekend! Many Thanks :)

Liked best: The garden - it has a massive outdoor wooden table which can fit about 16 people round it and importantly a large bbq!
Liked least: I personally found the property ideal - however there are no picturesque views from the house/garden itself! You would need to wander up the road for that!

“fabulous for families”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

4 families stayed here in May 2013. The accomodation is spacious, luxurious and equipped with everything you could possibly want. Lots of lovely touches - like an old desk full of felt pens and paper for children to use.

The area is full of fun things to do with the family - the Afan mountain biking trail - 3 miles from the house - was up there with 'canyoning' according to my children. We hired bikes and spent a whole day whizzing around the trails - a bit like a ski resort there are trails for beginners all the way up to black scary ones for thrill seekers. There is even a skill circuit - with ramps, jumps and so on for amateurs. Our friends with small children hired bikes with trailers - and their 4 and 6 year old had an amazing time.

The Gower peninsula is about 3/4 hour away - we spent a day at Tor Bay - a stunningly beautiful beach - with sand dunes (8 children spent about 4 hours running up, rolling down..), streams for damming, and gorgeous cliff top walks all around. This is one of the best beaches I've ever visited. The sand is perfect for building sand castles etc.

Within 1/2 an hours drive there are amazing waterfall walks - we spent our final day here - there were even mad canyonning people leaping off of the tops into the deep pools. In summer these would be perfect for swimming - there are c30 waterfalls to explore.

Definately a great base for families - so near to beaches, the Brecons, the Afan valley.
