Porthcawl, Bridgend County, South Wales, Wales
Nestled on outskirts of Bridgend in a village to the West called Kenfig Hill, Miners Cottage is in an elevated position overlooking Margam Valley and mountains and with views across Swansea Bay to the Mumbles and Gower peninsular, making it a perfect base for touring the beautiful coastline of South Wales as well as being perfectly situated to access the Brecon Beacons National Park.

About the neighborhood
We are set in the very heart of South Wales - 5 minutes form junctions 37 or 38 of the M4, half way between Swansea and Cardiff yet in a peaceful location. You will be an hour away from the Severn Bridge, Mid Wales and West Wales, no better place to be to explore this beautiful coast
Getting around
Whilst a car is recommended, there is a bus stop at the end of the row called 'Kenfig Hill Cross' a train to Bridgend then a bus to the end of the Row is very doable.
Car advised
How to get there
Miners cottage can be reached in 5 to ten minutes from junctions 36, 37 or 38 of the M4 Motorway.
