SOTA Tour B&B
During my SOTA's in Wales & Ireland I stay locally in Bed
& Breakfast accommodation. The following stood out from the rest:
1 Oakfield Terrace
Torfaen NP4 9DS
Phone (01495) 792 829
Paul is a charming host and source of local knowledge. The Big Pit
museum and the Blaenavon Ironworks (World Heritage Sites) are very nearby.
Beautifully decorated throughout, a spacious room and a shower that works,
really all you need after a day's hillwalking.
GW/SW-012 Coity Mountain
In fact Blaenavon is to the NE of Coity; from the top you can hear the
museum's steam whistle!
GW/SW-014 Mynydd Carn-y-Cefn
The "next" hill top west from Coity, only 1 valley in between.
In the area:
GW/SW-013 Tor y Foel
GW/SW-016 Ysgyrd Fawr
GW/SW-023 Allt yr Esgair
GW/SW-026 Bryn Arw
Phone: (0504) 56 821
Conor and Geraldine are very welcoming hosts. Pleasant stay, quiet
spot, off-road parking, only minutes from the town centre for a pub
meal. Garden (lawn) to erect your antenna for those evening QSO's and free
WiFi to send your logs!
EI/IE-024 Devilsbit Mountain
EI/IE-026 Ballinveny Hill
EI/IE-009 Keeper Hill
EI/IE-023 Silvermine Mountain
EI/IE-025 Cooneen Hill
EI/IE-031 Foildarg Hill
EI/IE-041 Ballincurra Hill
So really plenty of choice to stay for a few days!

I warmly recommend this B&B on Gorumna Island (linked by a set of stone
bridges) in the Gaeltacht area of south Connemara. This modern and
tastefully decorated B&B is in a quiet, remote spot and comes with lovely
views over the bay.
Accommodation is in spacious rooms with comfortable beds, digital TV and
fast WiFi. A hearty welcome from Sinead and Paraic awaits you!
Breakfast is cooked to order and evening meals are upon request (off season
local pubs don't serve food).
An ideal place to tour the south Connemara hills and
mountains; the scenic drive comes for free!
