“Perfect location for exploring”

A stones throw from the sea and the centre of Mumbles. Absolutely perfect accommodation with the added bonus of parking for two vehicles. Riverdale Cottage is finished to an extremely high standard with solid oak finish. Chris the owner on hand with nothing too much trouble, without being intrusive. Would definitely return.

Superb quality self-catering cottage, wish we could've stayed longer! Well located for Mumbles & Swansea. Will definitely book again.

“Cosy Hideaway”
Reviewed February 21, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We last stayed here in October 2014 so we knew what to expect and we are glad to report nothing has changed. It is ideally placed and we like the fact that the car is well off the road. It is home from home, however if I have any negatives to make it would be the fact that the duvet could be bigger, I think it's a double and a king size would be better! Also as we were down in February we were in on a night and did find that the sofa bed settee a tad uncomfortable but we are nick picking. There is everything you need for a comfortable stay, yes we would come again as for us the location is spot on.

“Cosy Nest”
Reviewed April 11, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The accommodation is first rate, it is very clean and well maintained with all appliances that anyone would require whether on a short or longer stay. I must say I am rather fussy about strange beds but found this one very comfortable and the bathroom is very nice, as is all the cottage. It,s position makes it an ideal place for Mumbles and exploring the Gower, there,s also a friendly pub at the bottom of the road. We definitely would use it again if we were in the area.

“Absolutely amazing!”
Reviewed April 9, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Having never visited Wales, we have missed out on true beauty!
Firstly the cottage is to die for. Clean, modern, welcoming and gently woken to the sound of birds & the gurgling of the stream in the morning was...bliss!
We cannot wait to return ❤️

“Perfect spot for our 'minimoon'!”
Reviewed March 26, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We fell upon this place when looking for somewhere quiet but modern to escape after our wedding. Chris was brilliant in communication from the word go and really accomodating to the fact that we weren't sure when we would be able to arrive. The property itself is superbly furnished and decorated. Really modern yet classic. It was so warm and snug which is difficult to achieve when a property is predominantly wooden floors. Extremely well equipped property with more than enough mod cons. It's ideally located, an easy walk from the sea and a very short drive from other local attractions. We absolutely loved it here and hope to return year on year to celebrate our anniversary. Thanks so much to Chris and his wife for the addition of the bottle of fizz to celebrate... a really lovely touch! Highly recommend this place to all xxx
