Welcome to The Miners Cottage.

This bright and modern old miners cottage is a self contained home which includes 3 bedrooms and a practical bathroom on the first floor. Meanwhile the ground floor contains a kitchen and a large living/dining area with lots of light as well as a safe. The garden includes a lock up area for 6 bikes, where padlocks can be added, some are provided. In the garden there is a place to sit to have a drink and relax, barbecue, fire pit and washing line.

Sky wireless internet is free! 

The Old Miners Cottage is situated in the small quiet village of Abercanaid built in the 1850’s, with easy access to the Taff Trail and the A470. The Taff Trail spans the length from Cardiff to Brecon. The village has a well stocked shop as well as 3 pubs with one serving food. If those don’t take your fancy Table Table is a 4 minute walk away, along with a Co-operative and much more. The cottage is located within close proximity to Merthyr Tydfil, once the Iron capital of the world, and has direct links to the train station and bus stop. Abercanaid is a 40 minute drive to Cardiff and 15 minutes to the Brecon Beacons, giving Merthyr the nickname ‘The Gateway to The Beacons’. The location distance to Bike Park Wales (0.4 miles) is a 10 minute drive but can also be ridden by bike within the same amount of time, although coming down is less than 4 minutes!


Although the cottage is rented as a whole, price is determined based on how many guests are staying at the property (max. 6). We do check to see how many people are staying, this is due to violations regarding the incorrect amount of guests in the past, which is cause for being evicted immediately with no refunds. So please give the correct details while booking with us.
