We were immediately struck by the generosity of the owners in their thoughtful welcome pack and very detailed listings of the local amenities which meant that we could arrive and settle in without having to do a massive supermarket shop before we arrived and could spend the day in Swansea, and the evening exploring the local area. There is milk, bread, cheese, butter and many local treats in the pack and a convenient butcher with extra green groceries nearby. Just be careful to note the opening times. Gorgeous wine too and speciality coffees...all welsh produce.
The house is so comfortable, and we loved the robes, slippers and large number of towels all over the property. There are books, games and dvds for the evenings, and the wifi worked well. All the kitchen utensils were really high quality and everything was supplied for us including surface wipes, paper towels, foil.....condiments. This makes packing so much easier.
We found parking easy enough even though we had two cars so don't let the lack of obvious parking put you off.
Shower and cooker were really high quality too.
Beaches are close to walk to, with lots of great restaurants close by. We spent a 30 min drive to Rhossli beach too which was breathtaking, as were walks from Langland to Caswell Bay. I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely holiday home to anyone.
For the things that didn't come in the wonderful welcome pack, the local newsagent covered other basic needs, a few steps away. Although there wasn't a great deal of parking, there was always a space. Delighted with the detail put into the visitors' file, explaining important things such was what to do with the recycling and who to contact in an emergency. Got dogs? They are in for a treat - plenty of facilities for every need - if we had a dog, they'd rate this a five. No wonder the place won three awards last year. Several bays to walk to, with cafe at the nearest. The owners could not have done more, apart from the cooking! Had never played Tyrolean Roulette before, either... Reckon we'll be back.
We had a wonderful relaxing break in Mumbles. The house is lovely and very well situated. John (the owner) was so accommodating and thorough. All dogs & children thoroughly enjoyed. I would thoroughly recommend staying here. Thank you.
Very clean and smart - selection of games and dvds plus WiFi to keep the kids happy - easy access to mumbles and beaches and convenient for Swansea centre and to liberty stadium- owners friendly and helpful will visit again
My family stayed here for the weekend while visiting me at Swansea university and we couldn’t have asked for a better holiday cottage. On arrival John was so kind and his hospitality was outstanding, he was so helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome. The cottage was incredible and had everything we needed, our dog Alfie loved it there and we felt very comfortable. The cottage was in the perfect location a 15 minutes walk from the mumbles, a 20 minute walk to Langland bay and a perfect distance from Swansea town. We were worried about parking but the village has lots of spaces available so there was no need to worry. Finally the welcome pack for both us and Alfie was an added bonus of a perfect stay. We will be back shortly!!
This dog friendly property is ideally situated for walking and for getting into Mumbles. The weather was fantastic, cold but sunny and the bay looked fabulous. The property was well equipped warm and well situated. The welcome packs were outstanding and we hardly had to buy anything for a long weekend! The dog welcome back was much appreciated by our little dog Hamish. All in all a fantastic break and would highly recommend.
