“Perfect little cottage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My wife and I stayed here with our 2 year old son and loved this very well equipped little cottage.

The quality of the fittings and furniture is of a bery high standard and the kitchen has everything you need.

The location is also ideal, it's in a quiet resedential area and only about 10 minutes walk to the seafront. From there you can stroll at your leisure along to the Mumbles.

If you are travelling with a little one, just be aware the living space is upstairs and there's an open staircase.

Thanks to Chris for his hospitality.

“The Absolute Best Self-Catering Cottage in Mumbles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 for a stay in February 2013
1
person found this review helpful

If you are looking for self-catering accommodation in Mumbles – look no further than Riversdale Cottage. What a fantastic find! A newly converted, fully furnished self-catering cottage that sleeps up to 4, in a perfect location! The cottage is tucked away, giving us privacy, but within walking distance (15 min) of the sea-front and Mumbles town-centre, giving us easy access to sea, shops, restaurants, pubs. The cottage has all mod-cons: fully kitted kitchen, washing and dryer machine, Wifi, TVs (including one in the bedroom) with DVD player, patio with a barbecue, and ample parking. The cottage is beautifully and tastefully furnished throughout. Super warm and cosy with a modern combi-boiler system! All our visitors have commented on what a pretty cottage it is, and have been impressed with the quality of the build. The kitchen includes a fridge-freezer, full-sized cooker with a fan-assisted oven, microwave, coffee-maker, kettle and toaster. There is an impressive range of cooking utensils (including BBQ tools) – we've made pancakes, roasts, stews, cakes, bread – basically, there are no restrictions with cooking. We have had dinner parties and drinks parties – the well stocked kitchen easily supplying sufficient glassware and dishes for all our entertaining needs. The cottage is astonishingly spacious – far more than it might look from the outside or in photos. Our landlords, Chris and Sarah, are the nicest and most gracious hosts imaginable, offering advice and help for just about anything. We have also been fishing with Chris on Gower – and have cooked up our freshly caught fish at the cottage. An unforgettable stay at Riversdale Cottage - we will forever have fond memories, and we look forward to our next visit.
