Nestling into the hillside, above the Swansea and Neath valleys are Tan yr Eglwys Cottages in South Wales and the family farm. Set in the hamlet of Cilybebyll, the cottages and a small cluster of houses surround the ancient parish church. Around the cottages are fields, hills , streams and woodland where cattle, sheep and horses graze. There’s always an opportunity to befriend the ponies or feed the hens and possibly even find some fresh eggs for breakfast!
The cottages have a long history, their origins over 400 years ago are of agricultural dwellings where animals were kept at ground level with living accommodation above. The nearby farmland is in the family for the fifth generation, originally (a dairy farm) supplying the locality with fresh milk.
