For anyone working on their manuscript, or just having to catch up on some emails, then the large desk in the sun room is the perfect place to work. Outside is a small but pretty courtyard garden. The brick built shed, which opens onto the back lane, is perfect for storing bikes, or wiping down muddy dogs after a walk. There's also a hose in the garden for cleaning bikes. If you're looking for a party house - this isn't it, but if you want to relax in comfort then this is where you want to be. The house is fitted with hard wired smoke and heat alarms with battery back-ups and there is also a carbon monoxide alarm. The gas boiler was serviced and checked in October 2017. A copy of the gas safety certificate is included in your welcome pack, along with a copy of the fire safety plan created with the guidance from the local Fire Service who conducted a fire safety visit in January 2018. A copy of the plan and/or gas safety certificate can also be emailed to you on request. More

On the day of your arrival we will send you the key lock code (key lock by front door). A welcome pack is in the house full of useful info on places to visit, eat, drink etc. along with guidelines on using the cooker, log burner, heating etc. We are only a phone call away if you need anything else. I hope you decide to come to the beautiful Afan Forest and wish you a lovely break.

We booked Ty Hiraeth to use as a base for our two week family holiday. It was bigger than we expected, which was helpful with two teenagers and a dog. It meant we could take advantage of the wood burner in the living room, with...More

About the neighbourhood
Ty Hiraeth is the perfect base for exploring the spectacular 48-square-mile (120 km2) Afan Forest Park. World-renowned as a premier Mountain Bike riding venue, Afan Forest Park is also hugely popular with walkers and cyclists. Mountain biking Afan Forest Park is home to 6 world class trails including, the ‘Penhydd’, ‘Y Wâl’, ‘White’s Level’ and 'W²', boasting over 100 km of single track trails. Cycling You don't have to throw yourself down a mountain (or peddle up one!) to enjoy the Afan Forest on 2 wheels. The ‘Y Rheilffordd’ trail (Railway in Welsh) is a network of 36km of disused railway lines which runs along the base of the Valley, forming a low level cycleway that's ideal for families. Ty Hiraeth is a 5 min walk from the forest.
Getting around
There is a bus route that stops less than 100 yards from the house and goes all the way to Neath and beyond, having said that a car would be advantageous for exploring all that the area has to offer. If you're just into walking, hiking, cycling or mountain biking then that is all accessible from the house within just a couple of minutes.
