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.
