Overall a pleasant stay. Pros: Big open space for lounging and cooking. The dining table was lovely and allowed us all to sit down and enjoy meals together. Clean bedding and towels and lots of kitchen equipment for the stay. Cons: Shower was disappointing as it was mounted so high so there was no pressure in the water by the time it reached the boRead moredy. A few malfunctioning entertainment (air hockey/foostable) but owners can easily fix this. The size of the TV is small for the room. Hide

We had a great week at Depot Road and were very impressed by the facilities. It is very well equipped to deal with lots of people doing cycling and surfing, with plenty of room to store bikes and dry wetsuits. The bedrooms have ample storage too and the living space is also spacious and comfortable. We cooked a lot and found the kitchen the best eqRead moreuipped that we have ever stayed in. For people who like to cycle the location is great, being very close to the cycle track and Afan National Park. Hide

Fantastic place for adult groups into the sports that are available in the local area. Not ideal for families with young children or dogs as directly onto a main road. Location quite isolated with not much in the immediate location. Good base from which to travel around the rest of South Wales if you're up for driving.

We had a fantastic time at depot rd. The house is perfect for 12 people who can enjoy the meal together at the large table at the same time which you not always get with other cottages.

The property is clean and spacious with well equipped kitchen, however the location is not ideal. The area is run down and definitely not a holiday location I would not return for this reason.
