Welcome to Afan House

For a Holiday In the heart of the Afan Valley National Park

About Us

Our Family have lived in the Village of Duffryn Rhondda and the Afan Valley for 4 generations.   We needed a base to visit our family after we moved away, as not many people want dogs staying with them. 20 years ago the opportunity to buy in this fabulous location came up and we spend 5 years renovating and changing the house to how we liked it.

We had friends and family ask us if they could stay so we decided to do a limited run of times when we rent out the property, because we love it here so much. We are not a business, but a family that want to share the magnificent location  with others.

We ask for a returnable security deposit for every stay, that covers breakages and accidents, because its better for everyone than  charging more for something that rarely happens.
