“Beautiful!”
Reviewed October 21, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had a lovely stay at The Garden Flat. We stayed for a week at the end of September so the weather was a bit hit and miss. We had 3 good days and spent them along the coastal walks, which are just beautiful. We stopped at Langlands for a G&T and watched the goings on and also walked up to Bracelet Bay. Even when the weather was awful we enjoyed just hanging out in the flat by the fire with a glass of wine n chilling. The flat is super cosy, quirky and as all you need for a comfortable stay. Bed is sooo comfy! Meeb (the owner) is lovely and was there to greet us when we arrived. Would love to return, maybe in Summer next time!

“Cosy apartment for two with all you need”
Reviewed June 20, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This apartment was perfect for our requirements and met all our expectations. It is very well-equipped, clean and very comfortable, with excellent facilities. The location is very good. Being able to eat out on the patio in suitable weather, while looking out at the sea, is very relaxing. The owners, who live in the flat above, are very helpful and friendly. The (tarmacked) coast path and beach are only a couple of minutes walk away, and the bus stop for Mumbles and Swansea is at the top of the road. Mumbles is a very lively and characterful resort, with an increasing range of cafes, restaurants and shops.

“Blissful Honeymoon”
Reviewed April 28, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

First of all, when you wake up and wanna enjoy your breakfast on the patio...What a view! Rotherslade Bay is just down the hill in under two minutes! Then there's Langland Bay around the corner of it. Heck why keep to the sunrise for breakfast? Try the sunset over the ocean view you got on that patio! Add the wood lodges and iron barbecue that the owners provided and set up a bonfire! Great space for the flat, when owner introduce herself, she has the most wonderful story of how they got the property. So spacious! And tad jealous of the open space lounge/kitchen! The bed was comfortable. The whole decor and interior is themed, we think Mediterranean a-little with that forestry leaf tiles in the bathroom to the glass sculptured snail lighting in the bedroom (very beautiful piece!). As the review title states, it was for our Honeymoon. As we happen to mentioned that it is, we received a champagne bottle on arrival! The owners did mentioned they wish to provide milk, coffee and tea things ready for us. Plus due to my partner diet, we requested if possible, and was defiantly above and beyond kind; provided lactofree milk. Not forgetting the classic Welsh cakes next to the tea pot. Would love to visit again! The location is easy for walking to Mumbles (nearest town) via main streets or the long cliffside walk. As well as to others Bays/Beaches in the area. If you stay here, check out Caswell Bay too!

“Great place”
Reviewed March 19, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We have just spent a week at the Garden Flat and had a great time. The flat is well equipped and very cosy with the log fire. The location is great for coastal walks as the coast path is at the end of the road and takes you into The Mumbles to the left and Langham bay and Caswell Bay to the right. We especially liked the Surfside cafe at Langland Bay where you could sit and watch the surfers and dog walkers on the beach. We walked the 15 mins into the Mumbles most evenings for dinner (quite hilly walk), can recommend the Mediterranean restaurant, The Kitchen Table and The White Rose.

“Cosy flat in a great location”
Reviewed September 23, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This cosy one bedroom flat is situated in a quiet neighbourhood within easy reach of the picturesque Langland & Caswell Bays.
The décor is pleasantly quirky with a rustic feel throughout, and it has a log burner as well as integral central heating.
The furnishings are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped - although the rather bewildering array of recycling bins do consume a fair amount of cupboard space.
Mumbles can be reached on foot within 15 minutes - but the terrain is rather undulating so some may find it arduous.
We had a very pleasant week and would recommend this accommodation.

Thankyou for the positive review, we're pleased you enjoyed your stay and the local area. Regarding the recycling, we too are rather bemused by the Swansea recycling scheme but we hope the boxes are well labelled and easy to use. Future guests please rest assured there is plenty of empty cupboard space elsewhere in the kitchen. We're glad you liked the decor, 'pleasantly quirky and rustic' is a great description!

“Stay in the Mumbles with no Grumbles”
Reviewed May 12, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The sevice was excellent and we could be in touch at anytime as Meeb is not far away, she is a very honest person and nothing is too much trouble. The apartment is very clean, comfortable, well furnished and we'll equipped. Step straight out from the lounge onto the patio garden and enjoy a Great veiw of the bay. Walks and shops not too far away.

What we liked least: getting the into the drive, not as easy as most.
What we liked best: What's not BEST about WALES? including Meeb!
