Would love to return to this lovely property soon. Excellent for walking, cycling or just a peaceful getaway. Remote but very close to swansea and motorway for access. Very well decorated and equipped, even dogs needs are catered for with outside tap, dog towels etc....More

If you want someplace quiet to get away from it all, Cathelyd Colliery Stables is perfect. The area is quiet and scenic, with plenty of walks nearby. The house itself is well looked after and has everything you could need.

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.
Getting around
There is a bus stop outside the New Inn Pub next door and there is a local taxi firm in the town Clydach a mile away.
