Have just returned from a fabulous weekend stay at The Bungalow.
A cosy well equipped property with easy access to the headland and the Mumbles.
An ideal spot for a weekend/week stay.

“Ideal location for touring the Gower area”
Reviewed June 27, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This cottage was in a ideal location, we had some wonderful walks especially enjoyed Rossili Bay (be sure to have appropriate footwear if going across to Worm head) Oxwich Bay. Lots of choice of pubs and restaurants in the area.
We were however disappointed with the cottage, it states accommodates 4 people we were only two and a dog and found it cramped. What is described as a double bedroom is actually a single room with a double bed in it. The main bedroom has a perspex roof over the bay window very noisy if it rains during the night, equally no curtains so the room is soon light in the mornings. Very little storage space (if you consider when people holiday in the UK they need to bring clothes for all weather) The shower room is tiny the floor never gets dry, so felt cold and damp, not a pleasant experience using the room. No bath towels supplied apparently to keep costs down. Every self catering cottage we have stayed in before has always provided towels we found this a little mean. This is the first self catering cottage we have stayed in that didn't provide an information folder for guests one laminated sheet and some leaflets clearly left by other guests.

I'm very sorry that the bungalow was a disappointment. The bedroom is perfectly adequate in size and there is a large wardrobe with drawers. Having said that any visitor who prefers a larger more spacious accommodation may be put off Gower Bungalow which is fair enough.

Since this review was posted we have taken steps to address where possible the issues raised. We now have brand new three and two seater leather sofas to replace the old corner unit. There is a brand new fridge and we have made very significant changes to what was the wet room. It now has an enclosed glass sliding shower unit. We will not be replacing the polycarbonate roof that covers the bay window area as we feel this is generally appreciated by visitors for the additional light it allows into the room.
We are welcoming of constructive criticism in order that we can where possible demonstrate our commitment to providing a comfortable and positive stay for our visitors.

The bungalow is in an excellent location, is well equipped, well maintained, clean and tidy.

We had a lovely weekend walking in and around the Mumbles area.

“Utterly Adorable”
Reviewed November 23, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This is a holiday home for people that aren't expecting high end luxury, but instead cosy, warm and homely. It's what i would call a Mary Poppins house. Its is tiny on the outside but very large on the inside. The decor was a lovely mix of rustic and modern. The bed was SO COMFY! Ample wardrobe space and room underneath the bed. The kitchen was fully equipped for cooking and cleaning. Plenty of tea and coffee was provided which was great. The sofa was also amazingly comfy. Overall the house was presented and equipped to a high standard. The dust maybe an issue for some people, but it was undoubtedly very clean. The central heating was a lifesaver as it was bitterly cold the week we stayed. The house is easy to find and very close to the local coastal walks, pier, shopping and coffee shops. The local area is beautiful. I am actually a local girl but my partner is from Brighton, so this place was perfect to show him the best of Gower and of Swansea. Overall it was cute, practical, clean, spacious, comfy and homely. We would and are planning to stay here again! :)

One tip! There is so phone reception in the house, you would need to walk down the street or to the local shops to get signal, but you are in a rural area. There is no wifi and no 4G masts. If you do not or are unable to leave the house for a while then i recommend going old school and bring your favourite DVDs, board games and books. :) It was a welcome and needed break from technology!
