    Nadine2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • this property is a real gem and we would highly recommend it. Its a great secluded and private place to stay with everything you need. It's warm and cosy, well lit with a great games room to keep visitors entertained. We hired the hot tub which was a real touch! The hosts have gone the whole hog with providing an absolutely lovely place to relax and unwind. We will definitely be looking to return, maybe in the Summer time when it's a little bit better weather! Plenty of things to do in the area as well which unfortunately we didn't get to explore as much as we intended so hopefully next time we will. Thanks very much to the Birds

    Lee2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

  • Although the trip was short, it was a very good trip. The cottage was absolutely beautiful and homey. It really was home away from home. Will definitely be going back in the summer and stay longer

    Dolly2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing views all around, lovely friendly people and quick to help. Lovely presented home, very little signal makes it a lovely escape from the real world, but does come with wifi if needed. The family dinning table was great for meals and games, the sofa was so comfy could truly relax after a long day of adventure.

    Rose2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at the Birds home a converted stables that still had remaining, original features, a beautiful clean, modern stylish home. I would definitely have liked to stay longer. The games room was an added bonus for my 24 year old son and husband who greatly enjoyed the pool table and I even had a go at darts. Highly recommend one of the best Air Bnb's we have stayed at in Uk and Europe.

    A Beautiful 19th century grade 2 listed former colliers cottage in a quiet terrace in rural surroundings. Newly refurbished to an extremely high standard. A stones throw from the Brecon Beacons and Bike Park Wales. Hot Tub secure parking/garage WIFI. Please introduce yourselves when requesting to book and tell us a little about your planned getaway, if you haven't added a pic or bio to your profile please consider doing this, it just helps us see who we're talking to. Thanks a lot Joe Scott.
    CORONA VIRUS UPDATE Hi all I just wanted to inform you all of how Outdoor Retreats ltd will presently be dealing with bookings at Dan y Coetir Lodge in regards to the Corona Virus. The Lodge will remain open, but we will be taking the following precautions: We will now for the most part, be checking guests in and out with instructions sent over the phone and using the lock box for the key. This is typically how we operate anyway and has worked well up until now. If our assistance is needed however, please be assured that we are close by and always able to help, Corona Virus or not! Cleaning staff will arrive at least 1hr after guests have checked out and will leave at least 1hr before guests are due to arrive. Extra precautions will be taken to protect their health and that of our guests. The cleaners already ensure a very high level of cleanliness at the lodge. Antibacterial cleaners are always used throughout the property but you can be assured that this has been stepped up to include more points. Our cancellation policy remains the same and we will always make every effort to rebook holidays if it comes to that, but please ensure you have holiday insurance in place. You'll probably be aware of the loo roll shortages being experienced, as we are unsure if this is going to persist and our suppliers are currently out of stock we are suppling loo roll at a rate of 1 roll for every 2 nights booked. This is to protect what stock we do have, the rolls we use are longer than standard so this shouldn't be a cause for concern. We have checked with BISHTA (The British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association) and their current policy is that there is nothing to worry about while using a hot tub. The coronavirus would be inactivated at the levels of chlorine/bromine used in swimming pools and hot tubs. Our hot tub uses a self dosing system so bromine will always be present in the pool but if you are concerned and would like the pool tested again during your stay just ask. I think that covers most things for now, if things change we will keep you updated but we want to stick as firmly as we can to this policy. Stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you at Dan y Coetir Lodge. Thanks a lot Joe Scott Outdoor Retreats Ltd There are 2 bedrooms one is upstairs and accessed by the original spiral staircase (which may not be suitable for elderly or disabled guests) and the other is downstairs. Both bedrooms have 2 single beds however upstairs in the master bedroom they can be joined together to create a king-size double. We can also provide a travel cot and a stair gate. On the ground floor as well as bedroom 2 you will find the living room, kitchen and bathroom. The living room has two 2 seater sofas a dinning table with 4 chairs, smart TV, blueray DVD player, telephone and a selection of games, books and DVDs. The Kitchen is well stocked with cutlery and crockery utensils and implements. It has an induction hob and electric oven, microwave, toaster, kettle, full sized fridge freezer, dishwasher and washer dryer. Complementary Tea, Coffee, sugar and milk are supplied. The Bathroom features a large shower cubicle with electric shower, toilet, hand basin and vanity unit and a large heated towel rail. Guests are supplied with toilet paper, bath sheets and hand towels and also pool towels for use with the hot tub. From the kitchen you enter the garden, with hot tub and plenty of seating options. Guest have full use of the hot tub, we ask that you read the instructions in the welcome pack and follow the rules displayed in the garden. In the garage you will find a separate tumble dryer, bike tools and service equipment, shoe dryer, clothes rack and cleaning equipment. The roller shutter door has a head height of 2 meters which makes the garage suitable for most cars and some Van's. we can allow pets upon request, they are charged at £5 per pet per night. When booking, we will need the address of the person making the booking.
    Although our cottage is in walking distance of Merthyr Tydfil town center, Cyfartha retail park and Rydycar leisure complex, and within cycling distance of Bike Park Wales and the Brecon Beacons it retains a rural feel. Dan y Coetir Lodge is in a row of grade 2 listed former colliers cottages opposite a small horse stable and exercise area.

The Taff Trail spans the length from Cardiff to Brecon. The village has a well stocked shop as well as 3 pubs with one serving food. If those don’t take your fancy Table Table is a 4 minute walk away, along with a Co-operative and much more. The cottage is located within close proximity to Merthyr Tydfil, once the Iron capital of the world, and has direct links to the train station and bus stop. Abercanaid is a 40 minute drive to Cardiff and 15 minutes to the Brecon Beacons.

    Charmaine2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious, bike storage for six bikes min plus hose etc. To be honest we were either on the bikes at the pub or sleeping, either way the host was very professional. Everything possible was covered in an info pack. Tea coffee towels welsh cakes milk etc made for lovely touches. Only minor note is the mattresses were a little past it. Certainly comfier than some of the other bnbs in the local area though. Overall a fantastic weekend, will definitely be back

  • The house looked as clean and well taken care of as the photos! It seemed very recently renovated and everything was clean and well decorated. Shannon was an amazing host and the guest guide she provided with all the local attractions was super helpful. We would definitely go back, preferably in the summer so we can enjoy the garden as well!

    George2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Well thought out, clean, stylish studio which is ideally situated close to the Brecon Beacons national park. My partner & I stayed here for New Year's Eve with our little dog. Quiet room even with a pub/hotel next door, great amenities with nice touches. The fresh milk and welsh cakes were very much appreciated after a long day walking! Thank you for a lovely stay, will definitely be back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others!

    Jacqueline2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • James' Place was amazing. It is stylish and well throughout regarding layout and amenities. A stones through from a shop and local pub. Great TV to chill out to Netflix with and little desk for work. All in all some very clever touches to a cosy room.

    Mark2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place was really fantastic. James was thorough in his directions when the map can be temperamental. There were lovely little touches that made us feel really welcome when we got to the place itself. Really clean and organised to boot. The wi-fi was on the spotty side but that's the only thing I wasn't expecting. Everything else was flawless for the price. Great place and thanks fo the stay!

    Jaimun2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nice, stylish, spotless and characteristically modern little patch of home that offers free parking. Close to Rhydcar Leisure Centre where you can find franchise restaurants such as Nando’s and Frankie & Benny’s, as well as entertainment such as a Vue cinema and about 20 mins drive from the picturesque Waterfall Country, great for a day out hiking. A 45 minute evening trip if you’re interested in having dinner in Cardiff City Centre as we were. Would very much elect to stay here again in the near future.

    Aaron2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant, peaceful, stylish, great value for money. I will definitely use this Studio again if I find myself close by.

  • Lovely 2 night stay here, the apartment is stylishly designed and furnished and had everything we needed. It was clean, the bed was very comfy and there were nice little touches of Welsh cakes, milk and chocolates waiting for us on arrival. We could hear others moving around the building but it was generally quiet enough. Overall a good little spot for exploring the Brecon Beacons!

  • 4 of us were heading up to Bike Park Wales and Black Mountain Cycle Center for my 23rd Birthday so we needed a place to crash. I found James’s Place while looking around and thought it was exactly what we were looking for. We checked in with a self check in code which was awesome so we could arrive at a time that suited us between 3-12. There’s also a car park which we could park in and Check in was super easy and well planned. We stayed in flat one which was very quirky and made us feel at home straight away ! We was greeted by James’s mothers cakes which were one of the best we’ve ever tasted and I was also greeted with a birthday card and some chocolates by the team at James’s place . Very clean and tidy and also have ya some little things like tea , coffee and milk which was great after a 3 hour drive. Finally james place is outstanding for the fact my partner left his track pump in the flat and posted the keys , so we phoned James’s place up and he sorted it out straight away and allowed us to get it back , that’s what you call a super host ! We will defiantly be coming back Thank you James’s Place

  • We stayed at James place for 2 nights on valentines weekend in order to explore the Brecon Beacon and the apartment was in the perfect location for that. The self check in was super simple and we found the flat to be very clean and had all the things one would need for a short stay. There was also a lovely extra of a valentines rose:) thank you James for that! The parking is on street and there was always a space right in front of the flats. Excellent stay!

    Josh2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • James' Place is super cool. It has loads of character and some really nice touches. It was a little gemstone that happened to be on the way to where we were going. The village it's self isn't up to much but we did find a cool little tapas pub. It wasn't serving food at the time but we stayed for a drink and had a chat with a few local characters. Great value for money. Thanks James.

    Glenn2020-01-20T00:00:00Z

  • Very clean property and easy check in even if you do turn up at 3 in the morning. And queries were answered straight away. Nice wee touch was the off street parking allowing you to park your car or van safely without risk off others scratching or bumping it in the street. The place is so close to bike bark wales and they have left washing facilities for your bike and a tray to dry wet shoes next to heater. Beds are really comfy too. Just a great place at a really reasonable price.

The bungalow is set close to local amenities and within walking distance of Cyfarthfa Park, the Taff Trail, Merthyr Leisure Park, Merthyr Retail Park and the Town Centre. Bike Park Wales is a five minute drive away and is easily accessible on a bike. The bungalow is the perfect retreat after a busy day.
  • Our trip to BPW was made easier thanks to the location of this brilliant bungalow. Very clean and lots of space for the four of us including our bikes. Great host with good communication all round. We have already booked our next stay and would highly recommend. Thank you to Amy and her husband for being great hosts.

    Flexible accommodation to suit your needs. At James' Place we can offer you either a traditional hotel room or a fully equipped studio with the added benefit of your own kitchen, expect quality affordable accommodation that suits you. Brynawel is a beautiful Victorian house next to Thomastown Park and has stunning views over the Merthyr valley. Brynawel is a very short walk to Merthyr Tydfil town centre, the train and bus station, but far enough away for you to have a peaceful retreat.
    Studio-Luxury-Private Bathroom-Mountain View
    Brynawel is located a short walk from the town centre, bus station and train station. Next door is the beautiful Thomastown park and 20 minutes drive will take you to the breath taking Brecon Beacons. Brynawel is a 40 minute drive to Cardiff city centre.
  • Great place 😁

    Louise2019-12-20T00:00:00Z

  • James's place is gorgeous and comfortable. I would definitely like to stay here again and can highly recommend to other travellers

    Emma2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great location as the train station is a short walk away (prepare yourself for the hill!) Merthyr Tydfil is a great little town and if you fancy going into Cardiff by train it’s a beautiful hours journey on the train. James is a great host and makes you feel comfortable instantly. Lovely little welsh cakes and the room was gorgeous. Love the unique heater of the room, took us a while to figure out the source of the heat. Although the listing states no television or WiFi, the apartment actually has both. There are also lots of leaflets of things to do in the surrounding area. Cute little kitchen, perfect for easy meals, comes with two hobs. Can’t wait to return! Thank you James.

    Stacie2019-08-19T00:00:00Z

    Refurbished miner's cottage in Aberdare, close to the Brecon Beacons National Park and Bike Park Wales, with excellent road links to the myriad tourist attractions and places of interest that South Wales has to offer. Nearby there is a local pub, convenience store & post office. Cardiff Road Fish Bar is highly recommended. Aberdare is 1 mile away where there is a rail and bus station, supermarkets, indoor market, sports centre, Aberdare Park and Dare Country Park.
    Full house with open plan living downstairs, 2 bedrooms and a shower room upstairs, and an enclosed patio garden with a stunning outlook and a spacious, secure shed.
    Bike Park Wales is 12 minutes away by car. Brecon Beacons National Park is 8 miles away, where you can hike to the top of Pen y Fan, walk under waterfalls, take a steam railway ride and visit Dan yr Ogof caves. The Royal mint, Castell Coch, Gruffalo Trail Wales, and Caerphilly Castle, are all within 20 miles. The City of Cardiff, Cardiff Bay and Swansea are 25 miles away, with the beautiful South Wales coast, Mumbles and the Gower peninsular a little further on. You can take a leisurely drive through the Brecon Beacons National Park visiting Brecon, Talybont, Llandovery, Builth Wells, the Elan Valley, Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell, Sugar Loaf mountain and Usk. We are also within an hours drive of Raglan Castle, Tintern Abbey, Symonds Yat and the Wye Valley where you can hire canoes for a very pleasurable day out.

  • Amaizing house: - as a location : 20 min by car from the waterfall eco pathways in the mountain. 60 min by car from the breathtaking Rhossili Bay beach. 50 min from Swansea and Mumbles, the southern coast of Wales. 1 min by car to the Turkish and Chinese takaway :). - Inside is clean and very well furnished, with everything we needed- towels, hairdryer... - Backyard with a view, where you can have your morning coffee. Andrew gave us very simple and accurate instructions about the places we must see in the region. I am more than pleased, and my family enjoyed every minute of our stay in Wales. Highly reccomend this house and the hospitable host, who meet us with a box of chokolates and fresh milk. Thank you, Andrew!

    Stanimira2020-01-22T00:00:00Z

Well behaved dogs are very welcome to come and stay. We just ask that owners clean up after their pooches (there’s a poop bin just outside the gates to the Roost on the Taff Trail) and be considerate to other guests. Guest access Each cabin is private but the rest of the site/facilities are yours to explore/utilise including the shared kitchen and shower rooms.
    The Roost is in Troedyrhiw, Merthyr Tydfil, in the heart of the Welsh Valleys with the Brecon Beacons on the doorstep. There's a pub next door (it doesn't do food but has a pool table!) and the village centre is a 5 min walk away. Here you’ll find a cafe (they do great value breakfasts and Sunday roasts to eat in or takeaway (and they can deliver)), pubs, convenience stores, a butchers, chemist, cashpoints (within the convenience stores), an Indian restaurant and takeaways . Merthyr Tydfil town centre is 12 mins by car, 18 mins by train (from Troedyrhiw) or a 20 min level bike ride on the Taff Trail.

  • Wow wow wow! We had such a wonderful time at The Roost, and we can’t wait to visit again! Kath has done an amazing job making her place warm (even in FREEZING weather), cosy, and welcoming, there were so many thoughtful little touches that surprised us that it will be difficult to mention them all! We stayed at The Roost for a short Valentine’s break, and I wanted something different to surprise my boyfriend with. Everything was of exceptional quality, including super warm and cosy bedding, sparkling clean shower rooms, a very cool kitchen area with board games provided, environmentally friendly toilet roll and cleaning products, and also a great set-up for bikes, with bike racks inside the cabins and a bike wash area. A personal highlight was the mouthwatering homemade Welsh cakes left for us in our cabin, these were delicious and I could definitely have over-indulged! Kath was incredibly accommodating to us when the weather forecast had predicted a very bad storm, reaching out to check if we needed to postpone our trip, and then allowing us to do this at no extra cost. All in all, we had a superb time and can’t wait to visit again (hopefully when the weather is warmer!)

  • Great stay here, absolutely ideally located for Bike Park Wales, Breacon Beacons and the Taff Trail. The hot showers are amazing, beds very comfy and the kitchen is great (can’t wait to return in the summer and have some bbq’s outside). Views are great and this place is ideal for mountain bikers / outdoor pursuits people. Thoroughly recommend :)

  • Awesome little spot close to Bike Park Wales. Thoughtfully put together accommodation with everything needed for a few days stay. Great spot to rest and recoup.

    Kevin2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Well set-up for a cosy modern camping style trip in the Brecons very close to Bike Park Wales. Well thought out facilities with an environmentally focussed foundation which gave me a real feel of getting back to nature. Great for couples and groups and the communal kitchen area felt like a hub for meeting other guests and the beginning / end of the day. Very secure as the venue is within a solid electric gated enclosure so safe for children exploring within the site. Kath and Kris welcomed us with big smiles and open hearts and I felt very warmed to both of them and were full of local knowledge if we needed to know anything. I love this place and I feel that they have created a special little sanctuary in the Welsh countryside.

    Kate2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • A bunch of us stayed here over a weekend while we had fun at bike park wales and black mountain. The garage with the bike stands and locks are a nice touch all the beds were very comfortable but the best bit was snuggling up by the fire with a nice glass of red.. loved the place look forward to coming back again.

    Steven2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • This house is absolutely perfect for a trip to the bike park. A huge garage for your bikes with work stands and locks. There were breakfast cereals and tea supplied! Comfy beds and a great fire to get cosy after a day on the hills. We will be back for sure!

    Emma2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Jamuna and Kev's place was perfect for our family reunion and an early Christmas celebration with my 90 year old mother. The facilities were perfect and equipped to the highest level. Everything we needed was there for us and we had a lovely family time in a space we could enjoy and relax in. It is in a great location with countryside, walks, cycling, a railway station within 500m and direct trains to Cardiff with local shops and eateries in walking distance. We couldn't take advantage of the outdoor spaces so we will have to return.
