An excellent home from home to base yourself for mountain biking and outdoor activities in the Afan valley. Comfortable, clean and well appointed. The mountain biking centre and trails are less than 1km away. It's worth having a drink at the old Miner's Institute on a Saturday evening. Like a trip back to a bygone era!
Problems sometimes happen but it's how it's dealt with is what I like to review. We arrived very late on a Sunday evening and could not gain entry to the house however a very friendly neighbour called the owner (I had no network coverage on my network O2) and the owner travelled over from a distance to let us in. 10/10 for dealing with this so promptly.
Once inside we found a fairly new, well kitted and clean house with ample room for our small family of 3 however a family of 2 adults + 5 children would be comfortable too. The owner seems to be a stickler for detail and has left nothing out. You will find all the amenities in the house from 3 different types of first aid kits (first aid, burns, eye wash) to the many types of spanners to repair your bike if needed. All electrical equipment in the house has been PAT tested and there is a decent barbecue trolley to cook up a meal.
The location is great for mountain bikers whether a causal track cyclist or a professional mountain biker both activities are available from Glyncorrwg and you are less than a 30 minutes drive from the coast (car recommended) for other activities.
All in all we had a great stay, with friendly neighbours, helpful owners in a very pleasant town house. Would recommend!
