About Hugh Robertson
Hugh and Becky run a number of holiday cottages in South and North Wales and the Cotswolds where we live with our two daughters, two dogs and two ducks.
Hugh Robertson purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Hugh Robertson chose Port Talbot
This was our first holiday home - tucked away in an isolated but friendly village at the top of the Welsh Valleys. A lot of our guests are mountain bikers out on the Afan Forest trails but when we stay there we take the dogs out in the surrounding hills or down to the seaside at Porthcawl and Newton. Equally it is a short drive to the southern side of the Brecon Beacons and less than an hour to Cardiff so a useful base for exploring south and central Wales.
What makes this Cottage unique
On most days you can look out the front window and watch the weather. If that weather is good you can use the decking at the top of the back garden for a better view and possibly a BBQ.
