Fancy an active getaway without having to leave the UK? Neath Port Talbot is the perfect choice of holiday destination if you like to spend your downtime outdoors.

This lovely Welsh region sits just East of Swansea and South of the Brecon Beacons National Park, and provides fantastic walking and biking routes through five different valleys, offering wooded paths, hillside walks, riverside strolls and loads more. The area's rivers and coastline are also fantastic places to give watersports such as stand-up paddleboarding and surfing a go.

Other great outdoor activities such as Go Ape, canyoning and Margam Park Adventure where you can improve your skills on things like archery, kayaking and orienteering, and even give paddleboarding yoga a go, provide something for every kind of outdoor enthusiast.

Canyoning especially is one for the thrill seekers. With Call of the Wild, you’ll jump into fast-flowing rivers, navigate waterfalls and make the most out of the region’s beautiful waterways.

And no active getaway would be complete without a fantastic place to call home for a few days. Swansea Valley Holiday Cottages offer charming cottages on the historic Plas Cilybebyll Estate, ranging from intimate sleeps-two or three boltholes, to a sprawling manor house which can sleep 18 guests. Each with their own unique charm, any one of their cottages makes for a fantastic base in this lovely region of Wales. 

The Prize

The winner of this competition will receive a two-night stay for two people in one of Swansea Valley Holiday Cottages’ self-catered cottages, plus a canyoning experience for two with Call of the Wild.
