Old Newton Cottage is a characterful cottage in a courtyard setting – once a brickyard – in the flourishing village of Newton, on the outskirts of Porthcawl. With pedestrian access, its patio and pretty garden to the front, the cottage retains an air of peace and quiet yet is within easy walking distance of two convenience stores, Post Office, off license and several pubs serving food, including The Jolly Sailor, a pub for over 200 years reputedly with several resident ghosts! Newton’s sandy beach, dog-friendly all year round, is also just half a mile away, as is the Wales Coast Path. Everything you need on the doorstep for a relaxing holiday by the sea, the cottage also provides a great base for visiting the many other attractions of the South Wales coastline, as well as easy access to both Swansea and Cardiff via the M4. Old Newton Cottage has gas central heating throughout; WiFi available.

Old Norton Cottage was cosy, well equipped with an excellent, modern bathroom and comfortable bed. Although the enclosed garden was not guaranteed dog-proof we found it was fine for a small dog to be loose there under supervision which is always very helpful when travelling with pets. The cottage was also cool inside during the hotter days with the option of sitting outside in the lovely garden when we wanted to sit in the sunshine. The cottage is tucked away in the quiet village which is ideal for relaxing at the end of a busy day. But we also enjoyed being within walking distance to amenities such as shops and pubs as well as the town of Porthcawl. Having the coastal path within easy reach on foot for morning walks was a real treat.

mrs J,

Very quiet location, felt you were away from the hustle yet all amenities were close. Fantastic owner who made you feel welcome. A safe haven for a small pooch. Would highly recommend

Mr M,

We were very comfortable in this lovely cottage for our week there. The owner called a few times and was very helpful. The Wi-Fi had excellent reception, so very useful for dealing with a few urgent issues at home and a Zoom call for a couple of hours. We appreciated the flowers and Welsh cakes on arrival and would recommend Old Norton Cottage for anyone wanting to stay in that area and for walking the coastal path.
