Located in the quiet village of Nottage with a great local pub just a few hundred yards away. This converted barn is semi-detached and is within the village itself that has a few local shops and the closest convenience store is within 50 yards. Porthcawl and the nearest beach is just over 1 mile away. Porthcawl has a marina, several beaches, fairground, restaurants, pubs and shops. Each September the Annual Elvis festival is held here.
The Merthyr Mawr sand dunes cover over 840 acres and are a haven for wildlife. They are also very popular with runners and sports people who come to the dunes to train. A number of motion pictures have been filmed here, including Lawrence of Arabia. To the west of Porthcawl lie Kenfig sand dunes: the whole area was once the largest sand dune system in Europe.
