Cwtch Farm is a dog friendly bed and breakfast situated in the small rural hamlet of Rhiwfawr in the Upper Swansea Valley. Cwtch Farm overlooks the Black Mountain and Brecon Beacons National park and is only half an hour away from Swansea and the stunning beaches on the Gower peninsula. When you stay at Cwtch Farm you can wake up to an incredible sunrise and listen to the birds singing which is followed by a hearty breakfast to start you on your day. If you decide that you need a break from exploring all that South Wales has to offer then you can join us for a relaxing afternoon tea overlooking the mountains. Whilst staying here at Cwtch Farm you can walk in our field and admire the views, relax in your en-suite room ( all of which have amazing views of the Black Mountain), take a walk around the local area or watch the sunset with a glass of wine in our panoramic conservatory. Once night fall is here you can sit out and watch the stars and see bats and the occasional odd meteor or look at the moon using our telescope.
Hi, I am Julia your host while at Cwtch Farm. I have 2 Border Collies and 2 Mini Pigs who will help welcome you when you arrive. I live on site so will be on hand to make sure that your stay is as comfortable as possible. I moved to Wales in September 2017 from Sussex after a long career at the airport in customer service. I now live the rural life on my smallholding.
There are some fantastic walks close by. You can visit the Black Mountain pass and the associated quarries. These lead on to the peaks and you can walk all across them. Llyn Y Fan Fach and Fawr is a 40 minute drive away and is a lovely walk up to the mountain lakes. We have Craig Y Nos country Park and Cribath ( Sleeping Giant) a short drive away along with Henrhyd Waterfalls and the Ape and Monkey Sanctuary. If you do not want to drive then you can walk up the Gwrhyd Mountain from our door and enjoy views of Pen Y Fan and the opposite mountains. The Gower peninsula is an hours drive away so if you fancy checking out some award winning beaches then this is the place to go. Ystradgynlais is 10 minutes away and as a lovely array of quirky shops and eateries for locals and tourists alike. And the award winning Dan Yr Ogof caves is a mere 15 minutes away and a fantastic day out for all.
