    Great place to live and visit. Far enough from the town lights to see the stars and close enough to have a takeaway delivered.

    A Beautiful 19th century grade 2 listed former colliers cottage in a quiet terrace in rural surroundings. Newly refurbished to an extremely high standard. A stones throw from the Brecon Beacons and Bike Park Wales. Hot Tub secure parking/garage WIFI. Please introduce yourselves when requesting to book and tell us a little about your planned getaway, if you haven't added a pic or bio to your profile please consider doing this, it just helps us see who we're talking to. Thanks a lot Joe Scott.
    CORONA VIRUS UPDATE Hi all I just wanted to inform you all of how Outdoor Retreats ltd will presently be dealing with bookings at Dan y Coetir Lodge in regards to the Corona Virus. The Lodge will remain open, but we will be taking the following precautions: We will now for the most part, be checking guests in and out with instructions sent over the phone and using the lock box for the key. This is typically how we operate anyway and has worked well up until now. If our assistance is needed however, please be assured that we are close by and always able to help, Corona Virus or not! Cleaning staff will arrive at least 1hr after guests have checked out and will leave at least 1hr before guests are due to arrive. Extra precautions will be taken to protect their health and that of our guests. The cleaners already ensure a very high level of cleanliness at the lodge. Antibacterial cleaners are always used throughout the property but you can be assured that this has been stepped up to include more points. Our cancellation policy remains the same and we will always make every effort to rebook holidays if it comes to that, but please ensure you have holiday insurance in place. You'll probably be aware of the loo roll shortages being experienced, as we are unsure if this is going to persist and our suppliers are currently out of stock we are suppling loo roll at a rate of 1 roll for every 2 nights booked. This is to protect what stock we do have, the rolls we use are longer than standard so this shouldn't be a cause for concern. We have checked with BISHTA (The British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association) and their current policy is that there is nothing to worry about while using a hot tub. The coronavirus would be inactivated at the levels of chlorine/bromine used in swimming pools and hot tubs. Our hot tub uses a self dosing system so bromine will always be present in the pool but if you are concerned and would like the pool tested again during your stay just ask. I think that covers most things for now, if things change we will keep you updated but we want to stick as firmly as we can to this policy. Stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you at Dan y Coetir Lodge. Thanks a lot Joe Scott Outdoor Retreats Ltd There are 2 bedrooms one is upstairs and accessed by the original spiral staircase (which may not be suitable for elderly or disabled guests) and the other is downstairs. Both bedrooms have 2 single beds however upstairs in the master bedroom they can be joined together to create a king-size double. We can also provide a travel cot and a stair gate. On the ground floor as well as bedroom 2 you will find the living room, kitchen and bathroom. The living room has two 2 seater sofas a dinning table with 4 chairs, smart TV, blueray DVD player, telephone and a selection of games, books and DVDs. The Kitchen is well stocked with cutlery and crockery utensils and implements. It has an induction hob and electric oven, microwave, toaster, kettle, full sized fridge freezer, dishwasher and washer dryer. Complementary Tea, Coffee, sugar and milk are supplied. The Bathroom features a large shower cubicle with electric shower, toilet, hand basin and vanity unit and a large heated towel rail. Guests are supplied with toilet paper, bath sheets and hand towels and also pool towels for use with the hot tub. From the kitchen you enter the garden, with hot tub and plenty of seating options. Guest have full use of the hot tub, we ask that you read the instructions in the welcome pack and follow the rules displayed in the garden. In the garage you will find a separate tumble dryer, bike tools and service equipment, shoe dryer, clothes rack and cleaning equipment. The roller shutter door has a head height of 2 meters which makes the garage suitable for most cars and some Van's. we can allow pets upon request, they are charged at £5 per pet per night. When booking, we will need the address of the person making the booking.
    Although our cottage is in walking distance of Merthyr Tydfil town center, Cyfartha retail park and Rydycar leisure complex, and within cycling distance of Bike Park Wales and the Brecon Beacons it retains a rural feel. Dan y Coetir Lodge is in a row of grade 2 listed former colliers cottages opposite a small horse stable and exercise area.

    Flexible accommodation to suit your needs. At James' Place we can offer you either a traditional hotel room or a fully equipped studio with the added benefit of your own kitchen, expect quality affordable accommodation that suits you. Brynawel is a beautiful Victorian house next to Thomastown Park and has stunning views over the Merthyr valley. Brynawel is a very short walk to Merthyr Tydfil town centre, the train and bus station, but far enough away for you to have a peaceful retreat.

    Brynawel is located a short walk from the town centre, bus station and train station. Next door is the beautiful Thomastown park and 20 minutes drive will take you to the breath taking Brecon Beacons. Brynawel is a 40 minute drive to Cardiff city centre.

    Emma2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great location as the train station is a short walk away (prepare yourself for the hill!) Merthyr Tydfil is a great little town and if you fancy going into Cardiff by train it’s a beautiful hours journey on the train. James is a great host and makes you feel comfortable instantly. Lovely little welsh cakes and the room was gorgeous. Love the unique heater of the room, took us a while to figure out the source of the heat. Although the listing states no television or WiFi, the apartment actually has both. There are also lots of leaflets of things to do in the surrounding area. Cute little kitchen, perfect for easy meals, comes with two hobs. Can’t wait to return! Thank you James.

  • 4 of us were heading up to Bike Park Wales and Black Mountain Cycle Center for my 23rd Birthday so we needed a place to crash. I found James’s Place while looking around and thought it was exactly what we were looking for. We checked in with a self check in code which was awesome so we could arrive at a time that suited us between 3-12. There’s also a car park which we could park in and Check in was super easy and well planned. We stayed in flat one which was very quirky and made us feel at home straight away ! We was greeted by James’s mothers cakes which were one of the best we’ve ever tasted and I was also greeted with a birthday card and some chocolates by the team at James’s place . Very clean and tidy and also have ya some little things like tea , coffee and milk which was great after a 3 hour drive. Finally james place is outstanding for the fact my partner left his track pump in the flat and posted the keys , so we phoned James’s place up and he sorted it out straight away and allowed us to get it back , that’s what you call a super host ! We will defiantly be coming back Thank you James’s Place

  • We stayed at James place for 2 nights on valentines weekend in order to explore the Brecon Beacon and the apartment was in the perfect location for that. The self check in was super simple and we found the flat to be very clean and had all the things one would need for a short stay. There was also a lovely extra of a valentines rose:) thank you James for that! The parking is on street and there was always a space right in front of the flats. Excellent stay!

    Josh2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • James' Place is super cool. It has loads of character and some really nice touches. It was a little gemstone that happened to be on the way to where we were going. The village it's self isn't up to much but we did find a cool little tapas pub. It wasn't serving food at the time but we stayed for a drink and had a chat with a few local characters. Great value for money. Thanks James.

    Glenn2020-01-20T00:00:00Z

  • Well thought out, clean, stylish studio which is ideally situated close to the Brecon Beacons national park. My partner & I stayed here for New Year's Eve with our little dog. Quiet room even with a pub/hotel next door, great amenities with nice touches. The fresh milk and welsh cakes were very much appreciated after a long day walking! Thank you for a lovely stay, will definitely be back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others!

    Jacqueline2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • James' Place was amazing. It is stylish and well throughout regarding layout and amenities. A stones through from a shop and local pub. Great TV to chill out to Netflix with and little desk for work. All in all some very clever touches to a cosy room.

    Mark2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place was really fantastic. James was thorough in his directions when the map can be temperamental. There were lovely little touches that made us feel really welcome when we got to the place itself. Really clean and organised to boot. The wi-fi was on the spotty side but that's the only thing I wasn't expecting. Everything else was flawless for the price. Great place and thanks fo the stay!

    Jaimun2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nice, stylish, spotless and characteristically modern little patch of home that offers free parking. Close to Rhydcar Leisure Centre where you can find franchise restaurants such as Nando’s and Frankie & Benny’s, as well as entertainment such as a Vue cinema and about 20 mins drive from the picturesque Waterfall Country, great for a day out hiking. A 45 minute evening trip if you’re interested in having dinner in Cardiff City Centre as we were. Would very much elect to stay here again in the near future.

  • Lovely 2 night stay here, the apartment is stylishly designed and furnished and had everything we needed. It was clean, the bed was very comfy and there were nice little touches of Welsh cakes, milk and chocolates waiting for us on arrival. We could hear others moving around the building but it was generally quiet enough. Overall a good little spot for exploring the Brecon Beacons!

    Amanda2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely space! My partner and I were at Bike Park Wales for the weekend and looking for space close to the park. James place was less than 10 minutes away, with ample parking right next to the property. The check in process was simple, and once inside, the space is decorated stylishly with thoughtful touches like Welsh cake and fresh milk. Would recommend to anyone, lovely place.

Perfect location for walking (unfortunately we had storm Dennis when staying) . Bed was very comfy and was lovely to be provided with a few food essentials on arrival. Wifi was quick and Rees quickly replied to any questions throughout our stay.

  • Great cottage in a stunning location. Cannot recommend a stay here enough!!!

    Holly2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Ty Twt is a beautiful, rural Welsh cottage overlooking a gorgeous unspoilt Welsh Valley. Although very small the cottage has enough amenities to guarantee a wonderful stay. We really enjoyed our few days in the cottage and in the local village where the locals made us welcome in the two pubs. In many ways the place felt lovely and isolated but in fact its close to the village and a short drive from anything you might want in one of the local towns. Rees the owner couldn't have been more helpful and was always available for advice. We will certainly be back soon.

  • Lovely stay, the cottage was just what we wanted for a weekend walking and climbing. As well as providing some breakfast goodies Rees also organised some sunshine! Thank you

  • Spacious, bike storage for six bikes min plus hose etc. To be honest we were either on the bikes at the pub or sleeping, either way the host was very professional. Everything possible was covered in an info pack. Tea coffee towels welsh cakes milk etc made for lovely touches. Only minor note is the mattresses were a little past it. Certainly comfier than some of the other bnbs in the local area though. Overall a fantastic weekend, will definitely be back

  • The house looked as clean and well taken care of as the photos! It seemed very recently renovated and everything was clean and well decorated. Shannon was an amazing host and the guest guide she provided with all the local attractions was super helpful. We would definitely go back, preferably in the summer so we can enjoy the garden as well!

  • Lee and Angela were fantastic hosts! They are incredibly kind and welcoming. They contacted us before arrival to make sure that we would be able to find the home okay, and were very accommodating with our arrival time. Lee was home to greet us when we got there, and was very kind to show us to the gorgeous house and room. It looks exactly like the photos, but even more beautiful and sweet in person. They had a wonderful binder with lots of helpful tips for the area- where to eat, where to visit, etc. We got to visit with Lee the next morning and learn a bit more about the house, which we loved- and he also gave us some great breakfast ideas before we made our way into town. It was so wonderful to come home to this beautiful room each night that we were in Merthyr- we got a wonderful rest and felt very comfortable. We cannot wait to stay here again the next time that we visit Merthyr!

  • This was a great place to stay . Very friendly and thoughtful host and a nice basement flat with all the amenities . Having come from Merthyr Tydfil myself originally I can vouch for the fact that the location is very central - literally just a couple of minutes from Merthyr town and the train station and the bus station being no more than five minutes away too. too . All this put together made for a great stay- "ticking all the boxes " and me and my partner will certainly want to stay there again when we next visit MT !

She also was happy to organise a late checkout with us after our flight home was cancelled which was a great relief. Will definitely use her lovely air bnb again when we are next in the area.

A cosy little cottage on a real working farm surrounded by stunning scenery and run by the nicest, friendliest couple who had loads of local knowledge and helpful tips to make the most of the area. Top notch, highly recommended!

    Jonny2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and cosy home, perfect for getting space from the outside world. We loved that there was no signal, but a gorgeous fireplace and snuggly sofa with plush blankets instead. Little treats and extra details really made it the loveliest place for us to rest before and after a big Brecon Beacons walk which we reached right from the front door. Thank you!

    Emily2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Utter animal heaven. It was so wonderful I plan to come back every year. I adored the location, the views were amazing. The animals were the best and the owners are simply wonderful people. We even got to see a just born lamb. This will always be my happy place.

Sent loads of useful information of directions for getting to the lodge. ⭐️such cute personal touches, daffodils, wood for the log burner, brioche, biscuits and doggy treats all in arrival. ⭐️sparkling clean, neat, tidy and pristine. ⭐️kitchen has everything you need, there is even a slow cooker. ⭐️I was concerned about the lack of phone signal, tv signal and no WiFi but it actually turned out to be the. Eat thing ever. We watched about 4 DVD’s and it felt lovely to be “off the grid” for a while! ⭐️we didn’t take children but this place is child friendly. ⭐️would definitely stay again and recommend to all!

    Eleanor2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Morris and Felicity are delightful hosts as are their array of pet farm animals. The space was absolutely perfect for us and the location stunning. Good luck to M and F with the farming ventures and hope we can return some day.

    Jimena2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Where to start ? The communication from Felicity was perfect and prompt, giving me all the information and directions that were spot on. The location was second to none, the added touch of the meet and greet to the animals on the farm really made our weekend. We have 2 dogs and I dont think we could of picked a more accomodating host. Felicity recommended the 3 peaks walk for us and it was spot on distance and time wise! Having the area out the back of the farm to give the dogs a run in the morning is a god send as they are active. To sum up, if you are looking for somewhere to stay, off grid, no signal, a few DVDs, a place the reconnect and reassess, look no further ! The most helpful host you could ask for in the most perfect spot, made for a PERFECT weekend!

  • We've always been able to park right outside the front door on the street, which is good for loading bikes etc. Walking distance to some great restaurants, the one's we've tried and would recommend are Red Spice, Portugalles, and New Crown. You need to book the last two at the weekend.

  • We had a great night staying at Huw’s place. There was room for the three of us and a nice communal area downstairs. It was only a 15 minute walk from the station and a great place to stay on the Taff Trail. Huw and his wife were kind, friendly and accommodating. The place was very clean and well cared for. Would recommend staying here.

    Our local pub called The Red Cow is a 5 minute walk which serves local food and a great atmosphere also fast food take away outlets are opening this year within 5 minutes walk from our home
  • We spent one night at Martin and Paul’s after a long day hiking. From the moment we set foot in the door we felt very welcome - Martin and Paul are great hosts! The space was nicely appointed with many thoughtful touches. We couldn’t have been happier with the stay!

  • Impecably clean, nice complimentary tea, coffee and cakes. The hosts gave us good suggestions and we really enjoyed our stay

  • Fabulous homely house with great hospitality. Stylish and contemporary room. Drinks available in the room with extra goodies too.

    Linda2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Without a doubt this is the best Airbnb we have ever stayed in. If we could award more stars we would. Martin and Paul are delightful hosts and nothing is left to chance. So many extra thoughtful touches. Incredibly clean, stylish with amazing decor and yet still welcoming and that at home feeling. We really enjoyed our conversations with both Martin and Paul and of course their adorable dog Bentley is just the icing on the cake. Thank you both for a wonderful stay

  • Martin and Paul were fantastic hosts for our two night weekend stay in November. Both the bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean, tidy and modern. We were greated with some lovely special touches on the Friday night, always nice after a four hour drive! We could have use of a separate lounge if we wanted to or alternatively, Martin and Paul were very welcoming in us joining them in the family lounge. They were also able to recommend somewhere for us to eat in the evening and were only to happy to let us use the radiators to dry some wet clothing from a day spent in the rain. Would 100% recommend anyone staying here. Very friendly, helpful and welcoming hosts. First time using Air BnB and we now have very high expectations of wherever we have to stay next! Thank you Martin and Paul :)

    Kathryn2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is the 2nd time we have visited Paul's place and both stays have been excellent. They are very accommodating hosts; the house is lovely and warm and super clean; the room is just as seen in the photos; the bed is very comfortable; the shower is great; there is parking at the front of the house, and very thoughtful extra touches, such as welsh cakes and chocolates. Paul and Martin make you feel like you are staying in a hotel. I can't praise them enough.

    Susan2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Totally recommend. Host goes above and beyond to help with your stay.

    Caroline2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
