About Mary-Ann Nossent
Mike and I bought the property in 2012 and live next door to the cottage. We fell in love with the garden first (well I did), and having previously had an allotment in Kent am delighted to have my fruit and vegetables a bit nearer to me now. We have done a huge amount in both the house and the garden. Like any garden it is of course a 'work in progress', and I have an ongoing battle with new plants and the rabbits! Mike and I both work from home so one of us will be around to chat or deal with any queries. Mike is a Rights of Way lawyer and I am an equality consultant. Lwcus is our Border Collie
Mary-Ann Nossent purchased this Cottage in 2012

It is in a beautiful rural location with the advantage of being close to the A48 making exploring quick and easy. We want our guests to leave here feeling they have had a very special stay and we do our up most to achieve this.

We always take time to share suggestions with our guests so that they can best enjoy their stay in the County.
What makes this Cottage unique
A main part of the Cottage experience is the garden which provides a quiet haven for visitors. We are continually developing this for our guests to enjoy. The gardens attract much wildlife and many of our guests have said how much they enjoy watching the birds so we ensure that the bird feeders are always fully stocked. We have recently produced information on the birds that visit us. The garden opened with the National Garden Scheme for the first time in 2018

Gorgeous location with welcoming host
We had a lovely stay. Mary-Ann is beyond gracious...we were welcomed with fresh-baked bread and welsh cakes as well as her more the knowledgeable insights on where to explore and the best places to eat (definitely check out White Hart!). The quarry on the grounds is also worth a ramble on its own. If I could give more than five stars I would.
Pen Y Garn Cottage
Beautiful and peaceful stay in a delightfully quiet setting. Good access to the coast, the Brecon Beacons and the Gower. Warm, welcoming and helpful hosts. Perfect all round.
Thank you for your kind words and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. You quote the very reason we choose this location, it is quiet and peaceful and at the same time really accessible to those, 'must see places' of West Wales.

Beautiful Pen Y Garn
We had a fabulous short break to Pen Y Garn, gorgeous cottage with lovely fire and places to explore, the cottage was just perfect, clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Mary-Ann was delightful and was on-site to assist if needed :-) Would love to re visit in the summer to take full advantage of exploring outside and to sit on the patio with a vino!
I would definitely recommend a stay here!
A lovely, peaceful cottage
We really enjoyed our stay in Pen Y Garn Cottage. It was well equipped and very comfortable for the two of us. The owner was very helpful and lovely to talk to. There is just so much to do in the area, we shall definitely return!
Well we really enjoyed having you to stay and delighted that you enjoyed your time with us. There are some very exciting plans for the National Botanic Garden of Wales so plenty for you to come back for!
