Company info

James' Place at Pontmorlais in one of several self catering studios and holiday homes I own and run. I was born and bred in Merthyr Tydfil and my passion is the welsh countryside and everything it has to offer. As a result I am keen to make sure everyone that stays with me can make the most of their time here. I went to art college and have a design back ground so I thoroughly enjoy designing any of my new studios. I have a particularly eclectic and unique style as you will see and hopefully enjoy. I am lucky to have a very loyal team who have been with me right from the start who help with anything from the cleaning, preparing the linen to sending out the booking confirmations.
