Cottage was cozy, comfortable and super clean. Appreciated the Welcome Pack, a very nice touch. Perfect place to relax by a log fire. Plenty of amenities in the cottage, owners have thought of everything to make your stay special.

Great attention to detail to ensure you had a home from home, nice homely cottage in quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a few days at Nant Melyn in February, we enjoyed both the area and staying at the cottage. We visited castles, beach and waterfall, all within easy reach, as were supermarkets and places to eat out if we had wanted to. We travelled from Wiltshire and found South Wales an easier commute than Cornwall with the M4 taking us most of the way.

Restful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I, along with our dog stayed at Nant Melyn from Monday 14th November for a week. On first entering Nant Melyn to our departure the following week we enjoyed everything about this lovely cottage. The vase of flowers, bottle of wine, welsh cakes, bottles of water and treats for the dog was a lovely touch. We visited The Black Mountain Centre which is a five minute walk from the cottage and was greeted by two very pleasant members of staff who were very helpful with suggestions of where we should walk. Llanelli Discovery walk, Rhossili beach, Craig y nos country park, Water falls at Coelbren and The black mountains plus a couple of walks from the cottage were all enjoyable and dog friendly. One of our nights we paid a visit to Brynamman cinema, definitely worth a visit. We also had a meal at Tregib arms. Every other evening we were very happy to stay in enjoying a glass of wine next to the log fire. The bathroom was lovely, it has a bath with a separate shower cubicle. After a day out walking a bath was very welcome. Also another lovely touch was the toiletries that was there if needed. We also booked Michelle for a massage each, which was a great way to relax and de 'stress. Nant Melyn is very clean and equipped with all that you need. Can not find any faults.. Just perfect. Luxurious even.
