It was lovely to see Minnie and her family exploring the local area. Very nice and friendly family and they were great guests. Cottage was really clean and tidy when they left. Would be a pleasure to have them stay again.

The cottage is fab and so well catered for; lots of lovely thoughtful touches to make you feel at home. Just across the road is a nature reserve with fabulous walks, and the pub, even closer, a good spot to chill in the garden afterwards....More

About the neighbourhood
The Mawr is one of the most sparsely populated in Swansea, is the second largest ward in Swansea by land area. Most of the ward consists of rural farmland and open moorland. Cwm Clydach RSPB Reserve is next to the cottages. Public paths and trails are open from dawn to dusk. There are two main trails which begin at the main car park. The shortest, known as the Nixon trail is a 2.2 km circular walk. The 4.7 km Trussler trail is rugged in parts. Both trails connect with longer distance footpaths leading off the reserve.
It is ancient broadleaved woodland and is home to breeding pied flycatchers, redstarts, dippers and buzzards. The Lower Clydach River flows through the centre of the reserve.
There are two man-made reservoirs near the village
