Description

Enjoy a relaxing break at Ty Howton, perched on the edge of this picturesque valley just outside the leafy village of Craig Cefn Parc (meaning ‘Rock Ridge Park’). With commanding views and walking and bird watching, this is the perfect location for family and friends to explore the wonders of South West Wales, mid-way between the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park and the spectacular Gower Peninsula (justifiably Britain’s first Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), famed for its award-winning beaches and dramatic landscapes.
Ty Howton is a tastefully renovated, detached bungalow offering a very good finish throughout. It has been thoughtfully appointed with an open-plan kitchen and dining area where you can enjoy a special family meal. The spacious living room, with its focal wood burner, provides the perfect place in which to relax and unwind after a busy day. On fine summer days, light the barbecue and enjoy some al fresco dining whilst taking in the panoramic views of the valley below.
With a choice of footpaths from your doorstep you might wish, on certain days, to travel no further than your feet will take you. The Cwm Clydach RSPB Nature Reserve is within easy walking distance from Ty Howton and is a must for wildlife enthusiasts. If you’re lucky you might spot a grey wagtail, a dipper or even an otter as you follow the course of the river along the valley floor. The local pub is an inviting place where you can enjoy a mid-walk meal or pint.
Further afield, a scenic drive northwards over moorland leads to the stunning Towy Valley with its majestic castles, meandering river and the charming, picture postcard town of Llandeilo, 17 miles. Waterfall Country in the Neath Valley is also well worth a visit. With easy access to the motorway, Ty Howton is conveniently located for day trips to Cardiff, 45 miles, Penclacwydd Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre, 12 miles, the National Botanic Garden of Wales, 20 miles, Carmarthenshire, or the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
Ty Howton is a fantastic base for discovering all that the area has to offer whether you are seeking relaxation or adventure! There are ample opportunities in the locality for surfing, kayaking and climbing on the Gower, or mountain biking at the world class Afan Forest Park, 17 miles, Bike Park Wales, 35 miles, or Bike Brechfa, 30 miles.

About the local area

Swansea, situated by an enclosed bay, has a long maritime tradition and is overlooked by brooding hills. The city has spacious green places in the form of extensive parklands and a striking shoreline. The wider county of Swansea lies within the Gower Peninsula, which was in fact Britain's very first designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.

This area offers visitors a varied mix of wonderful seascapes and sandy beaches, historic castles and woodland. Here there is evidence of early human occupation with some of the oldest human remains being discovered in this area. At just nineteen miles wide the Gower Peninsula is a microcosm of contrasting landscapes and ancient history.

For those staying within the Swansea area there are no less 54 public parks which extend right down to the shores of Swansea Bay. Of note is Clyne Gardens & Country Park which covers some 16 acres and includes panoramic sea views, bluebell woods, architectural follies, meandering streams, ornate bridges and a castle! Additionally horticulturists will not be disappointed with a large collection of plants and shrubs to be enjoyed. In fact it's a good idea for gardening enthusiasts to also head for Singleton Park which includes the city's botanical collection. Here you can also find a boating lake, picturesque Swiss cottage and is the place where large outdoor festivals and music galas are held.

To get a real taste of the local area visit Swansea Market, this is one of the largest indoor markets in the whole region and dates back to the twelfth century. It's a great place to potter around to soak up the local `colour' with stalls selling anything from fresh seafood to flowers and jewelry, souvenirs and local artworks.

The Gower Peninsula is simply ideal for holidays where lovely beaches, fun and relaxation are required. With a dramatic coastline it's ideal for cliff top walks and is the perfect place to re-connect with nature - it truly deserves its title `Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.
