7 Arches holiday accommodation was completely refurbished in July 2019. Benefits from stunning views over the Afan Valley and located on the Afan Forest Park's low level cycle route 'Y Rheilffordd' (railway in welsh) which runs along the base of the valley. This is a great trail for families with picnic and refreshment stops along the 36km trail. 'Y Rheilffordd' gives easy access to 6 world class trails as well as Afan Forest Park Visitor Centre, Glyncorrwg Visitor Centre and Afan Bike Park.
“We really enjoyed our stay, the little house was perfectly equipped, super clean and finished to a high standard. Great views of the hills behind and an ideal location for storing our bikes. Quick 20 minute ride to the main bike centre however a car is recommended if staying in the area. Bed really comfy, showers nice and we enjoyed being visited by the beautiful cat too! Gaynor was clear in her communication and was around when we needed anything, really friendly. Thanks!”

“Having stayed here before, I knew what to expect, and this time brought a new group with me who all loved the accommodation as much as the previous groups. It was perfect for our weekend, giving us easy access to various locations including Afan Forest, The Dunes of Merthyr Mawr and then not too far to the Brecon Beacons for an ascent of Pen Y Fan too. Thanks as always Susan for great accommodation and quick and helpful communication. We'll be back again soon!”
A spacious south facing bedroom with lovely pasture and hillside views. There is a double bed with king size duvet and plenty of storage and easy chairs. The bathroom is next to the bedroom. Guests have use of kitchen facilities and a Sitting Room with open fireplace and TV. This is a small farm with a herd of Native breed cattle together with a small herd of Blonde cattle. Lots of geese ducks and chickens that provide a breakfast egg if you desire! I also have two great dogs Lexi and Maisie
“Jonathan's place is highly recommended especially if you love animals. I had a fantastic time with his dogs and cats. We also enjoyed feeding his geese and ducks. Lexi, the dog, is the sweetest and my most favorite. The dogs are house-trained and very friendly. The property is situated next to the stream and the countryside scenery is splendid. So this place is perfect if you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Jonathan, the host, is very hospitable. Sue, the caretaker, is lovely and accommodating. We will definitely stay there again in the future.”
