Enjoy a relaxing break at Ty Howton, perched on the edge of this picturesque valley just outside the leafy village of Craig Cefn Parc (meaning ‘Rock Ridge Park’). With commanding views and walking and bird watching, this is the perfect location for family and friends to explore the wonders of South West Wales, mid-way between the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park and the spectacular Gower Peninsula (justifiably Britain’s first Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), famed for its award-winning beaches and dramatic landscapes.
Ty Howton is a tastefully renovated, detached bungalow offering a very good finish throughout. It has been thoughtfully appointed with an open-plan kitchen and dining area where you can enjoy a special family meal. The spacious living room, with its focal wood burner, provides the perfect place in which to relax and unwind after a busy day. On fine summer days, light the barbecue and enjoy some al fresco dining whilst taking in the panoramic views of the valley below.
With a choice of footpaths from your doorstep you might wish, on certain days, to travel no further than your feet will take you. The Cwm Clydach RSPB Nature Reserve is within easy walking distance from Ty Howton and is a must for wildlife enthusiasts. If you’re lucky you might spot a grey wagtail, a dipper or even an otter as you follow the course of the river along the valley floor. The local pub is an inviting place where you can enjoy a mid-walk meal or pint.
Further afield, a scenic drive northwards over moorland leads to the stunning Towy Valley with its majestic castles, meandering river and the charming, picture postcard town of Llandeilo, 17 miles. Waterfall Country in the Neath Valley is also well worth a visit.
