Mumbles, Swansea, Swansea County, South Wales, Wales
The cottage is in the heart of the bustling seaside resort of Oystermouth which boasts a high street of independent small shops and more cafes and restaurants you can visit in a fortnight so there's no need to cook. But if you do enjoy cooking, the cottage is well equipped and includes a dishwasher. There are two cosy bedrooms and everything is included. It was opened to visitors in 2011 and all the furniture and fittings are in excellent condition. It was redecorated in 2014. It has been awarded four stars by Visit Wales.

Only 15 minutes walk away from the award winning Langland Bay, the cottage is at the gateway to the marvelous Gower coast with its unspoiled beaches, cliffs and countryside.

Based ourselves here for a long weekend to visit the Gower and celebrate our 29th anniversary. We found the property to be more spacious than it looked, spotlessly clean and well equipped, having everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I should also mention that it was very quiet and peaceful. Lots to see, do and eat in the area.... more

Management response:

Christine called me to discuss her concerns. I explained that my usual cleaning arrangements were not in place prior to their arrival but I realised from the level of complaints that it would be best if Christine and her sister stayed elsewhere. I returned two nights of their payment. As it was raining and they had no car I took... more

Additional amenities & feature info
The house would suit groups of friends as well as families. The king size bed zips apart to provide two singles if needed. The double bedroom has room for a travel cot and there is one available at the cottage for your use, plus a booster chair that fixes to the dining chair and a taller chair for those old enough to sit directly at table.

We want you to have a great time so comfort is uppermost, for example we supply luxury towels. A selection of games and maps are provided together with an owners' guide to short walks around the area and recommendations for eating out.
