I was so happy to stay the night in one of these gorgeous little cottages, from the warm welcome to the great nights sleep, we had a lovely stay. There was plenty on offer for breakfast too. I would highly reccommend this place to any one looking for a clean, quite and comfy place to stay.

Our host was very welcoming and showed us our cottage for the night. It had lovely views of the bay. Inside there was a fully-equipped, compact kitchen spaced/dining room/sitting room with TV, and the bedroom was very comfortable with a small, but adequate, ensuite. There was also a laundry on site for longer stays. Just off the main road through... More

Lovey warm welcome and this friendliness stayed throughout. Cottages are very charming albeit a lil small especially the bathroom but it is worth it for the views and lovely local beaches. Not too far to drive back into Swansea for dinner etc. The provided breakfast provisions are a lovely touch.

Good value and very friendly host. Swansea itself is not the greatest tourist destination however LesterCottages are lovely. Very nice to find complementry breakfast items in the little kitchen. The only slight negative is that we were further out of town than I would have preferred. Plenty of car parking and the area felt very safe . A very quiet... More

The proprietors of these cute cottages couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Our cottage was very clean and pleasant to stay in. The bed was crisp and comfortable, we had a good nights rest there except for the clanking water pipes from the people next door from time to time. Breakfast was supplied, so there was a bedroom and ensuite,... More

Quaint little self contained cottages on the outskirts of Swansea. A real hidden gem. Although a little on the small side, they have a kitchenetee / lounge, separate bedroom and en-suite. Immaculately clean and styled in blue and white. We could not fault this place at all, a lovely night's sleep on a very comfortable bed. Ample breakfast provisions were... More

Is a nice little cottage. Cottage owner is a very friendly n helpful lady. Facilities in the room is pretty good ( of course can't compare to those 5 stars hotel in big city ) but for a cottage, is consider good enough. A quiet place with sea view room. Good place for relax, Worth the money.

We stumbled upon this cottage after travelling for 2 weeks and wanting to cook for ourselves. So glad we did. Swansea is a very quiet town but close to Freycinet, a lovely place to visit. Robin, our host, gave us a warm welcome and was very accomodating, even organising our washing so we could visit the sites instead of waiting... More

A very nice find. Well located with beautiful views. Neat and comfortable cottage with perfect hosts. Definitely recommend for a stay in Swansea. Close to wineries, Freycinet National Park and the quaint town centre.
