Neath lies midway between Glamorgan’s Heritage Coast and the Brecon Beacons National Park, just a short distance from Swansea and surrounded by beautiful valleys. It is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of some of Britain’s finest mountain ranges and breathtaking coastline.
Accordingly you will find accommodation options of every description, both in the historical market town itself, as well as in the surrounding areas. In Neath itself you will find both contemporary and traditional hotels, as well as number of bed and breakfasts and self-catering accommodation.
And with Swansea just a few minutes down the road, there is a whole range of city options available to you there as well.
The Great Outdoors in Neath
Neath’s spectacular rural location lends it a natural attraction to visitors hoping to get out and about. Whether exploring Neath’s country parks, waterfalls, and canal towpaths on foot, or getting the adrenaline pumping by thundering down one of the many heart-stopping bike trails in the area, you’ll want to ensure you find the right accommodation for your needs.
So perhaps, if you’re looking for a more relaxing country break, a stay further out in the surrounding areas would place you closer to nature. However, you might want to book into a hotel in the town centre itself so you can have the best of both worlds with the added bonus of the shops, cafes and pubs on offer in Neath.

If arts and culture is more your thing, October also sees nearby Swansea’s Festival of Music and the Arts offer a huge selection of music, film, lectures, visual arts and outreach projects for you to enjoy.
