Port Talbot, Wales, United Kingdom

The 'Peak', 'Nook' 'Trail' and 'Riverside' are part of a family of beautiful holiday apartments in the stunning Afan Valley in South Wales ran by Afan Valley Escapes

The Afan Valley is renowned to attract keen Mountain bikers. It's attractive if you like fishing or long walks. The Afan Valley 12 mile walking and cycling path runs directly behind these beautiful apartments so is easily accessible. There is a general store only 2 doors away and several lovely restaurants in the area.

The lovely beach of Aberavon beach is in easy reach. The wonderful grounds and castle of the Margam Country Park is also very near.

Let your adrenaline flow on Afan Forrest Park's six mountain bike trails. Mile after mile of former railway line awaits you, a great way to explore the outstanding beauty that awaits you.

If you prefer to walk, there are short strolls or long ramble routes, Afan Forest Park has something for everyone.

Near-by Glyncorrwg trail has food, bike shop, fishing and a great atmosphere! There are several visitor centres within easy reach.

Known as the heart and soul of Wales, The Valleys of South Wales are a must-see destination, with Afan Valley in the very heart. A region of breathtaking natural beauty, Afan Valley is set amongst densely wooded forests and glorious countryside offering picture perfect views.

Untouched by urbanisation, this peaceful region of Wales is made up of a string of small villages, creating the perfect setting for a holiday escape. Designated a Forest Park in 1972 thanks to its lush landscape and stunning setting, this picture perfect region of South Wales is now a magnet for tourists who flock to visit the many walk and bike routes that scatter the vibrant green valley. So much so, the area has now evolved into a hugely popular destination for outdoor activity and has become a premier destination for world class mountain biking.

Named in the top ten places in the world to ‘ride before you die’, the park is home to four world class mountain bike trails and two family friendly routes, offering something for both amateur and more experienced bikers alike.

Of course traversing around on two wheels is not the only way to discover the area and there are a variety of other outdoor pursuits to enjoy including nature rambles and hikes, horse riding, kayaking, caving, climbing, gorge walking and fishing

Hi my name is Sarah and I am a Property Manager I'm a married mum of 2 (not so little anymore) children . As a family, we love to travel the world and have stayed in so many amazing properties courtesy of Airbnb, so I am in a well-earned position to know exactly what you want and need in your holiday home from home. I love coffee, beaches, great food and making happy lifelong memories with my family and for my children, we treasure each and every precious moment together. I try to create a warm and friendly environment for you to relax and de-stress, as you while away the hours, far from the hectic, fast paced day to day working life.
