Semi-detached, one of a pair of cottages, sleeping four guests, situated on the northern edge of the Gower Peninsula in South Wales, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and just six miles from The Mumbles with its Victorian pier and town.

Nestled in a beautiful rural position yet within 5 miles of vibrant Swansea, this picturesque cottage sleeps four and is an ideal choice for families and small groups. A paradise for walkers, you’ll have lots of choice when it comes to exploring as there’s a plethora of cliff-top walks and countryside ambles to discover. After a busy day, there’s nothing quite like sipping an ice-cold drink in your enclosed, shared garden before tucking into a delicious BBQ feast.

Beneath the stone and wood exterior is a comfortable and welcoming retreat that’s been thoughtfully equipped with comfy sofas for relaxing, and handy cooking and dining space for mealtimes. The views through the patio doors are impressive and stepping outside and beyond the garden reveals over 26 acres of fields and farmland to investigate. Weary from your day, the two bedrooms are a peaceful retreat for a restful night’s sleep, and there is also a generous family shower room.

A hub of history, culture and food, Swansea has plenty to offer guests of all tastes whether you are tempted by the hustle and bustle of the marina or prefer a quiet stroll around a museum. The coastline surrounding Swansea is known for its pristine beaches and family-friendly allure, so you’ll be able to embrace a traditional day beside the seaside at Mumbles 6 miles away. The romantic Rhossili Bay and impressive Worm’s Head will appeal to adventure seekers, as will the rugged countryside of the Gower Peninsular as a whole.

We had a lovely time here. The owners could not have been more welcoming and friendly and the cottage itself was immaculate. We were pleased to see all the utilities available - washing machine and dishwasher and WiFi. We were lucky enough to see a new-born foal, only hours old, taking its first steps right outside our lounge window! The cottage isRead more perfectly situated to explore the local area and we had lovely trips out to local beaches and pubs. We would thoroughly recommend. Hide

Lovely location - a 4 mile walk to the closest beach along an old railway route but with a convenient pub for a drinks stop. Other beaches in easy reach by car. We enjoyed watching the horses and riders in the field from the sitting room.
