Walking distance to local pubs/restaurant, village shop & Black Mountain Centre
- english, Welsh
Brynamman is a village which I am proud to call home; now living in the hustle and bustle of Brighton, I love my trips back to my homeland and am always taken aback by how beautiful the backdrop of the Black mountains are over the village. With my family still living there, I enjoy going home to speak my native language Welsh. My work gets me traveling the country and the world regularly and with 14 years of staying in hotels weekly, I have an eye for product, quality, service and comfort. I hope you book with us and enjoy the village, the area, and the cottage as much as I do.

A lovely little cottage but with some aspects that need to be considered.
The cottage is very cosy, well fitted out with a lot of thought put into making a stay there very comfy. However, it is described as dog friendly but there are aspects that may not suit all dogs or anyone who isn’t keen on cats. The garden is only separated from next door by a low flimsy wire fence which had a large gap in allowing our dogs to go straight into the next garden. There are also other gaps around the oil tank large enough for a Labrador to go through. We spent the first 30 minutes upon arriving using old trellis from behind the shed to plug gaps. The adjoining cottage also has FIVE cats in residence who use the garden as their own and were constantly around the house unless chased off by the dogs.
The bedrooms are small but pretty and have enough room if you don’t bring too much luggage. The beds aren’t the most comfortable, would definitely benefit from new mattresses. The bathroom however is very spacious and has a great shower. You need to keep your wits about you on the stairs! They are very steep and narrow, really quite dangerous, probably not suitable for anyone who is not sure on their feet.
There’s nothing of much attraction about the town, nowhere nearby appealing for eating or drinking, but after a long day walking we were glad to eat in and the kitchen serves very well. We enjoyed lovely evenings eating in and playing cards. What is lovely about this place is if you turn left from the cottage, away from the town you are walking on the edge of the Beacons in just a few hundred yards. You are also well placed for driving to lots of wonderful places including Pen Y Fan, a strenuous but rewarding walk with the most amazing views. Or even drive down to The Gower, it’s only an hour away.
Fabulous long weekend
The cottage has been refurbished to a very high standard. It is emasculate and has everything you could need for a good relaxing break. We received a welcome basket of chocolate, spreads, a bottle of wine! And there’s even an honesty mini bar!! There four of us and 2 dogs and we were lucky enough for the weather to shine on us. We used the Derlwyn Arms for our evening meals as they were happy to have the dogs. Great food and friendly.
Beautiful Cosy Cottage in Stunning Corner of Wales
My wife, sister and I visited for a few days. We loved our long weekend in this cosy homely cottage - Steven was really helpful in providing all the information we needed before and during the stay, including lots of recommendations on places to explore in the surrounding area which is spectacular. The cottage itself made us feel instantly relaxed and at home, with everything we needed and loads of extra touches. We particularly enjoyed the roaring log fire in the evenings. We'd definitely highly recommend to anyone who wants to explore the outdoors and is looking for a quiet, comfortable place to 'get away'.
A perfect retreat!
A clean, cosy, warm
And welcoming cottage. Well situated for our short break walking with our dogs.
The cottage has everything you could need. All the little extra touches just help to make you feel comfortable.
I was wary of the stairs but only due to having slipped on the stairs at the local castle!
We had a lovely break and loved your cottage- thank you! 😀
Beautifully appointed cottage
Great cottage for 4 people. Felt spacious. Good garden for the dog. Ideal for visiting Black Mountains and Gower in one holiday. Was really very comfortable and felt homely.
We had a wonderful week here in this pretty little cottage. Although there isn't really anything in Brynamman itself, we found the location to be good for exploring the local area, going to showcaves, waterfalls, Tenby, Pembrey Country Park and Carreg Cennan castle amongst others.
The cottage is very clean inside and has everything you need amenities wise, including a dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, and electric oven, all of which are to a high specification. The bathroom is superb with a huge shower and bath. Plenty of games, books and DVD's are also provided, together with bottles of wine and spirits at a reasonable charge. Particularly appreciated was the welcome basket left for us.
Steven was very easy to communicate with before the stay, getting back to us straight away and being very accommodating when I had to change the dates slightly due to my daughter's GCSE results!
My only criticism was the complete lack of storage in the second bedroom which was a problem for two teenage girls. The room is quite small so I understand the challenge but I do feel this needs looking at, maybe some beds with inbuilt storage space could be used?
Overall though, we had a wonderful time in a lovely cottage and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or to recommend to others. Many thanks! Oh, and we had a wonderful meal at the nearby Pen Y Cae Inn - truly superb!
