We had the warmest welcome to a B&B yet with homemade cookies and tea in the garden. Katie is very accommodating with a clean comfortable bedroom and bathroom, homemade cakes, cookies and bread. The breakfast was outstanding and friendly. Penclawdd is situated on a beautiful inlet with salt marsh and beaches within easy reach. We enjoyed watching the sunsets over... More

Forget any ideas you've ever had of staying in 5* hotels. The Manse is a 5* B&B and far superior. The B's are as soft as swan's down and lull you to sleep in no time at all. The other B's are in the words of Roald Dahl 'scrumdiddlyumptious.'Homemade biscuits and cake lead you on to paths that would be... More

My husband and I live in Boston and were in Wales for a few days as an add-on to a business trip to London. We wanted to stay in a B&B that was convenient to hiking, which The Old Manse is, but it's so much more. Katie's warmth, hospitality, fantastic cooking and endless tea made me feel I was in... More

We were a group of friends attending a wedding in the Gower and stayed at The Old Manse for the night. At the last minute we needed to add an extra guest and Katie was very helpful and able to accommodate by bringing out an additional mattress. We were welcomed with home made biscuits. Katie was able to advise us... More

At the end of a long day's walk all you want is warmth, comfort and the prospect of a good breakfast the following day. Katie's B & B provides all of these. She is a delightful and attentive hostess. The rooms are light, airy and well furnished. The breakfast is an absolute delight and sets you up for what lays... More

Katie's hidden away B&B is well worth a visit. Tucked behind the Tabernacle, it provides a comfortable stopover for exploring the Gower. Katie is welcoming and leaves little home made cookies to tempt. Breakfast is delicious and should see you through the day. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Be careful when turning off the main road, the gates are... More

We spent one night at the end of our clockwise walk round Gower before walking to Llanelli next day. Location wise the Old Manse is excellent - there are not a huge number of choices on North Gower. Katie made us very welcome with tea and biscuits and excellent breakfast with lots of genuinely home made ingredients. Accommodation is comfortable,... More

We have just spent a week-end at the manse. Our stay was very comfortable with everything we needed on hand. An excellent breakfast to set us up for the day. Highly recommend the homemade marmalade and the courgette cake! Katie was very helpful and friendly.
