A superb and beautifully decorated detached barn conversion within striking distance of the magnificent Gower Coast, offering sandy beaches galore and picturesque villages. The perfect location to enjoy all year round.

Head to this inviting barn near Llethryd in the Gower and discover the magic of this unique, Welsh Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Gower Peninsula in South Wales has it all: fabulous footpaths, picturesque beaches and outdoor activities. Originally a dairy, this appealing, two-bedroom holiday home sleeps up to four guests and also welcomes a pair of contented canines. Enjoy venturing out to discover your spectacular surroundings or relax on the balcony at the barn and simply take in the far-reaching views.

Wander into the barn to find yourselves in the comfortable lounge. Light the wood burner in here on chilly days and while away the evenings in front of a film on the TV/DVD or by discussing your exciting day. Adjacent to this room are a useful utility room and a storage area. Close by, there is also a snug where members of your party can play games or watch TV. When mealtimes beckon, take one step up from the lounge into the kitchen/diner, where you can watch TV or listen to the radio as you prepare food, then set the table for dinner. At the end of each fun-filled day, climb the stairs up to the first floor to run yourself a bath and then head into either the king-size bedroom, which has a balcony, or the double room, with lake views. Soak up the sunshine in the courtyard garden and fire up the BBQ out here on warm evenings. Explore the owner’s grounds, which include a lake, whenever you choose. Parking for two cars comes with the cottage.

Pack your swimming costumes and towels, and even grab a surfboard, and head 3 miles to Three Cliffs Bay to spend time on the beach. Try Oxwich, 6.5 miles away, and Caswell, 7.5 miles from the barn, too.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A lovely spacious, warm property, set in beautiful grounds with an enclosed patio area which is ideal if you have dogs or small children. We have 2 dogs and we loved having access to the grounds which contain 2 lakes and an ancient wood. The property is not far by car from some of the beautiful beaches. A really tranquil location.

Lovely peaceful location with great outdoor space both as part of the accommodation and surrounding it. Lovely furnishings with nice little touches made cottage feel really welcoming.
