The Plas Cilybebyll Estate provides group accommodation in Wales. It consists of Plas Cilybebyll Manor House and a collection of eight holiday cottages situated on the home farm. These are known collectively as Swansea Valley Holiday Cottages. All properties are bookable here or on our sister website www.walescottages.com.

Plas Cilybebyll Manor and the cottages are a wonderful venue so families or groups of friends can get together. Our capacity is up to 50 guests so the complex features accommodation options to suit a variety of requirements. Our FAQs may help you, if you have been tasked with finding the best group accommodation Wales has to offer.
Some families in our group want to be next to each other. Is that possible? Yes of course. Members of the group will find their accommodation in the cottages and Manor are within a couple of minutes walk. We do feel the site naturally divides into three areas:
The Manor – Plas Cilybebyll Manor and Yr Hen Ysgol holiday cottage
The Courtyard – Bwthyn Y Saer, Hafod Y Wennol, Y Stabl and Ty Cerbyd
The Farmyard – Lloc Llo and Ty Gambo and Nant Y Plas holiday cottages
Group Accommodation Questions
Is the accommodation accessible? We have two all-ground-level holiday cottages so they are ideal for those with limited mobility including wheelchair users. Nant Y Plas and Bwthyn Y Saer both have single bedrooms and feature wet rooms with comfort height facilities, support rails and wheel/walk in rainforest showers.
Is the accommodation pet friendly? We have five pet friendly cottages in the complex so your pets can stay. The pet friendly cottages are Y Stabl, Ty Cerbyd, Nant Y Plas, Bwthyn Y Saer and Yr Hen Ysgol but we do not accept pets in Plas Cilybebyll Manor.
Is there a swimming pool? Plas Cilybebyll Manor features a stunning 10m x 4m indoor heated pool so guest staying in the manor can use the pool exclusively.
Is there a hot tub? Y Stabl holiday cottage features a riverside hot tub so residents of that cottage have exclusive access. However, Y Stabl actually forms one half of a long Georgian coach house along with Ty Cerbyd holiday cottage. It is possible to open an internal door that separates the two cottages so this creates a single 4 bedroomed cottage that sleeps 8. Both properties would then have access to the hot tub.
Is there a communal dining area? Yes. Plas Cilybebyll Manor has a large dining room so that you can seat up to 19 guests. We also have an events venue building alongside the Manor house which can seat at least 50 guests.
Is there bike storage? Yes we have secure storage for bikes so guests can store their bikes.
Is there WiFi and a TV? There is an good WiFi network in all of the holiday homes and around the grounds so that guest have WiFi access. Freesat and a smart TV are provided in each cottage.
Where is the nearest shop? There are large supermarkets in Pontardawe, just under two miles away (Tesco and Lidl). Our neighbours, ‘Pontardawe Farm Produce,’ is just a 5 minute walk from the end of the driveway so guests can easily buy fresh milk and farm produce there.
