About beverley scott
My name is Beverley and I am the owner of Lothlorien Cottage. I am very happy to answer any questions you may have about my cottage and the local area. I was born in Scotland but my Grandfather was Welsh and so Wales has always held warm associations for me. I chose this house in this location because I wanted somewhere serene and peaceful with huge skies and a feeling of space. I work in London and so I treasure the simple pleasures amongst the wild birds and plants and the rugged beauty of Wales. I adore the natural world and so it is a delight to watch the wild life in the garden and the changing face of the hillsides. I have a very good friend Caron who lives in the village and she takes care of my cottage and my guests.Her son Callum takes care of my garden and my windowboxes and also my guests. It is very important to me that my guests fully enjoy my home as their home. A house can never have too many happy memories You will find a direct link to my website lothloriencottage.co.uk at the bottom of the amenities section. It is very easy to reserve Lothlorien Cottage. When you choose the pay now button on my advert you will be asked to pay a deposit of 25% of the booking cost. 30 days before arrival you will be sent a payment request for the balance. If you prefer to make a reservation by paypal,I can also send you an invoice for the deposit and balance in the same way. I am very happy to answer any questions you have.
beverley scott purchased this House in 2006
Why beverley scott chose Ammanford
I bought this cottage because my beloved grandfather was from this region and I wanted to gaze at the hills and mountains from my window and be amongst them.There is an old world charm about the way people interract here and I like to be not too far from the sea.I always wanted a house with walls which were so deep i could have window seats
What makes this House unique
Lothlorien is ideally situated to fully experience the magic and the beauty of South and Mid Wales. It lies on the crossroads of four areas of outstanding natural beauty,The Brecon Beacons,The Gower,The Vale of Neath and Camarthenshire. Guests can expect to spend their holiday in a luxuriously comfortable home with everything they need, an ideal base from which to explore the spectacular scenery which surrounds Lothlorien Cottage. The Gower and Pembrokeshire coastline offer beaches that are world renowned and award winning. The Castles of Camarthenshire appeal because of their romantic and fascinating history of the past. The Brecon Beacon mountains are breath-taking,moody and magnificent. Whilst the Vale of Neath offers the glorious Afan Forest and its Waterfalls. There is so much to see that , as we say in Wales, we keep a welcome in the hills awaiting your return.

Real home from home comfy, cosy and clean
Great location for our needs, of road parking, convenience shop nearby and a pub/food a few metres down the road. Thank you Beverley for letting us use your cottage and thanks to Caron for being there if we needed anything. Highley recommend this property.
Hello Andy And Jackie
Thank you very much for your warm review and for being such lovely guests.
It would be lovely to have you return.All the very best to you
Delightful. Well equipped and lots of extra thoughtful touches. Comfortable, warm, welcoming, clean. Great welcome pack. Delightful garden. Convenient location. Helpful owners.
The only slight drawback is a fairly busy road at the front of the property. However the front is secured by a wall and a gate so is dog and child safe.
Thank you Lilian and Dave and April and Gracie
You and your rescue dogs were delightful guests and I am glad you appreciated our efforts to make guests welcome and "at home".You would be most welcome in the future and I wish you all the very best for the future.
Lovely comphy, cosy cottage. Very clean and tidy, with EVERYTHING that you need, and a great garden
We went to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday, the whole family, and all thoroughly enjoyed their stay. We are not the people for strenuous pastimes, but if you do like to hike or bike or run all of your environmental needs are right outside the door. We went to celebrate and chill out. To eat well, the eateries around here sure know how to cook, and to enjoy each others company and get a little R&R. Beverley made arranging this break so easy, have had some real idiots in the past, and Caron was simply great. We can't thank either of them enough. We really do recommend this little bit of heaven with no qualms at all. The Walker & Lord families.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review my home.It was an absolute pleasure
to have such a lovely family at a time of such an important birthday.Both Caron and I
take great pride in offering our guests the comforts of home and we are delighted that

A great base from which to explore the magnificent Welsh coastline, with fabulous sandy beaches to the south, Swansea Bay and the Mumbles and the Gower Peninsula - designated Britain’s first area of outstanding natural beauty in 1957 with its secluded coves, sandy beaches, surfing heaven and ruined castles, and the Worms Head and Rhossili (The breathtaking view of Rhossili Beach made it to number 11 in the Jacobs Creek competition '50 Best Views in the World' ) or enjoy the 22 km Millennium Cycle Path along coast.
