“Freezing cold. No central heating, the beging of March is too early to switch it off!!”
Reviewed March 22, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

people found this review helpful

We were only going for 3 nights but found the bungalow so cold we only stayed for 2. The meter ate lots of £1 coins to keep the main room a little warmer from convector heaters. A water bottle for the main bed was provided. The beginning of March is much too early to turn the central heating off! It's no use providing a torch if the batteries are dead. We had been out for shopping and came back in the dark, the electric had gone, it's a good job we had a torch in the car.
The one consolation was, it was a short walk to the coastal path.

Management Response
Mar 31, 2015
I have to admit to finding this review very disheartening. I do of course apologise to the visitors for their less than satisfactory experience in the bungalow. I take on board the issue regarding the central heating and will extend it to include the month of march . I would have responded to the visitor complaint had it been made to me in a positive and immediate manner but alas no contact with me was made. The other complaints are I have to say completely unjustified and perhaps a result of a sense of disgruntlement in regard to the issue of heating. I would however add that the electric heaters in each room are modern efficient and are not overly expensive to run. Gower bungalow is a lovely property that provides a high standard of accomodation that is affordable and for the over whelming number of visitors a throughly enjoyable stay.

“Beautiful quiet little place that does exactly what it says on the tin.”
Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We arrived on Saturday with clear instructions from Paula on how to find the key. A fabulous bungalow, spotlessly clean and very tastefully furnished being colourful, bright and airy throughout. Everything worked exactly as it should in the very well equipped kitchen - we didn't eat out once, choosing instead to eat in the dining/conservatory every evening. The garden is small and has really nice sitting areas - we spent all days out so didn't get the chance to do the garden justice. We took along our dog and felt perfectly happy with the security of the back garden.

Located literally a short hop and skip from the beginning of the Gower Peninsula path. A short walk takes you down to Bracelet Bay and the gorgeous coffee and outlook from the Castlellamare. Easy to walk to Mumbles Hill, Langland and Caswell Bays.

If there was one downside it had to be a large barking dog across the way, every time we ventured up the path it barked relentlessly and sometimes set our dog off by it's random barks. It wasn't threatening just slightly annoying. There were one or two dogs in the vicinity that were off-lead and charged towards our nervous dog. These didn't really detract from a wonderful week in an area of truly outstanding natural beauty.

“Cosy, comfortable, convenient bungalow in a quiet spot”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The stay in the lovely bungalow was very pleasant and relaxing. We enjoyed the functional kitchen with reliable equipment and a cosy interior. The electricity meter working with 1£-coins is no problem to handle. We needed less than 5 £ in 2 weeks even using the washing machine often (2 children). The shower is easy to handle and should be no problem for elder or handicapped people. In the winter garden there is a big table with a lot of space for 4 persons, even 6 persons can sit there. Sitting outside is lovely, but we had first to get used to English privacy provided by high fences. Children could play in front of the house. The neighborhood is very friendly and helpful. A two minutes walk along a small path leads to a breathtaking view over one of the nicest coast of europe and to the Gover coast path. Bus connections from Mumbles are fine, you don't need a car necessarily. Shopping in Mumbles is ok, but not the cheapest. All of us simply loved the house and the spot there. The landlady of the bungalow was very helpful.

“Relaxing Break.”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The Spouse & I fancied a short break not too far away from where we live, so we chose Gower Bungalow.
It is located near to Mumbles village. Swansea City Centre & The Gower are not too far away.
Firstly, Gower Bungalow is clean, with amenities and it is also dog friendly. It is reasonably priced too. There is a small conservatory and available parking.
Be prepared if you travel out of season to have a few pound coins,as the meter eats them up at an alarming rate! But you need warmth in March in Wales.
There are some good walks close by, and a charmig little cafe called Fortes.
We had no problems booking or asking questions with the Owner.

“Relaxing break in a great location!”

What can we say? It was so good, we have booked again for Sept!
The bungalow is in a peaceful location - we slept really well, with it's own parking and a lovey conservatory.
We have stayed in Mumbles before (in the main village) and had issues with parking and space. The bungalow met and exceeded our expectations - it is well-equipped, with it's own parking and in easy walking distance of Mumbles and the Gower coast. The bungalow is comfortable with plenty of space for a couple. The garden seating areas and conservatory are secluded with lovely views of Mumbles Hill. We also loved the lights in the garden at night!
You will need £1 coins for the electricity meter and bath towels - but everything else is provided.
We have already recommended to friends and family!

“Good value, clean, well equipped cottage in a great spot for walking and the Mumbles.”
Reviewed March 25, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Lovely little bungalow just outside Mumbles and on the walking route to Langland and the Gower. Found it easily. Kitchen has all the equipment we needed for self-catering. Nice open plan lounge/kitchen with dining room in adjoining conservatory. Very clean and no hint of a doggy smell you find in some places which welcome dogs. Recently renovated so kitchen and wet-room of good standard. Very cold weekend but even so it was warm with only one convector heater running. The details make it clear that the second bedroom is fine for one adult which is spot on. We'd go again.
