    “The cottage was beautiful and so peaceful.”

    Claire, the host, was friendly and helpful. If you want some where to recharge your batteries it is the ideal place. Ideally the entrance onto the farm could do with a traffic cone or some kind of bright object because with dark nights drawing in the entrance is difficult to find.

The property

Resting rurally near the village of Bettws in the Garw Valley, South Wales is The Bake House, a characterful, one-bedroom piece of Welsh history that was once indeed, a bake house!

Featuring a charming interior with a woodburning stove, exposed stonework and beamed ceilings, The Bake House pays homage to its 17th-century origins, whilst perfectly blending contemporary fixtures for a delightful, self-catered stay; two guests are welcomed for a romantic, countryside escape.

Benefit from off-road parking before travelling through the enclosed front garden, offering some private space to bask in the Welsh sunshine.

Head indoors to be greeted by the lovely open-plan living space, complete with plush seating, a Smart TV, a rustling woodburning stove, and dining space for two, along with a well-equipped kitchen, where you can prepare romantic meals throughout your stay.

Spend time indoors catching up on the latest series, or take advantage of the garden, perfect for alfresco dining and toasting to your break.

As day turns into night, catch some rest from the fabulous, king-size bedroom, spacious and adorned with country-style furnishings, before awakening to a refresh in the ground-floor shower room.

For your local amenities, Bettws has a pub, a post office, and a convenience store of which to take advantage, whilst further services are on offer across Bridgend.

Once you're ready to explore, be sure to grab your walking boots to enjoy Bryngarw Country Park, a haven for wildlife spotting.

Then continue south to tour the remains of Ogmore Castle and take in Merthyr Mawr Nature Reserve before heading for the Welsh shoreline at Ogmore By Sea or popular Porthcawl.

Swansea to the west is a car journey away, where you can tour The National Waterfront Museum or appreciate the exhibits of Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, before taking in the majesty that is the Gower Peninsula.

Be sure to visit Cardiff for a day of art, culture, and shopping, also offering the chance to visit the Cardiff Castle, the Wales Millennium Centre and Cardiff By.

Nature lovers meanwhile can head north and will relish in the chance to trek across the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Whisk your loved one away for a romantic stay at The Bake House.

Bettws is a quaint ex-mining village situated on the River Ogmore in the South Wales Valleys, Bridgend. The village is small and picturesque, surrounded by beautiful countryside and a great location for exploring the South Wales coastline and neighouring towns. In the village you will find a pub, convenience store, St. David's Church and a footpath leading to Bryngarw Country Park, recognised as one of the best green spaces in the UK. Set over 100 acres of park land, it offers a sanctuary for visitors and wildlife, with landscape ranging from woodlands to wetlands, and meadows to formal gardens. Bridgend is just south of Bettws, a busier town with a local train station, plenty of eateries and shops to discover, and historical sites such as Newcastle Castle, St. John's House Trust, as well as Newbridge fields with plenty of walks and ruins to explore. Head east for Cardiff, the capital of Wales, for plenty of cultural and outdoor pursuits such as galleries, museums, watersports and hiking in the stunning surrounding scenery. Swansea sits west of Bettws, another fantastic city with plenty of parks, Swansea Market, the largest in Wales, with delicious local delicacies to try, or head out of the city to explore the spectacular cliffs and wildlife of the Gower Peninsula. Bettws is a quiet spot to escape the hustle and bustle, whilst on the doorstep to busier Welsh towns and dramatic landscapes.
