This is a truly unique holiday experience away from roads, traffic and street lights. Access is via the owner's 4x4 down a half mile track cut into the cliff and through a ford in the nearby river. Once here you will access most places by foot, be able to spend hours on the beach or seek adventures amongst the numerous footpaths that leave here to access Gower's beaches, castles, pubs and cafes!

There are of course some draw backs:
- Vehicular access is by 4x4 only
- Heating is via wood burning stove
- Mobile phone reception is very limited

But then think of the positives:
- Vehicular access is by 4x4 only!
- Heating is via wood burning stove!
- Mobile phone reception is very limited!
- Peace, quiet, owls, bats, stars, the sound of the sea at night…

This enchanting, picturesque bay is set within the heart of the Gower P...

We stayed here for a family get together over a weekend hiring the main house and the annex and the shared accommodation worked really well. It's a lovely house with a very relaxed and welcoming feel. Well presented and very clean. It's a stunning location right on the beach but access is tricky so great if you are happy walking...

I stayed her with my partner and another couple. This place is a real gem. Excellent location for a quiet break with beautiful views and direct access to the beach. Cottage has everything that you require for a comfortable holiday. Whilst we were there our friend was taken ill and iI cannot stress how helpful Kath, the owner, was. Nothing...

From the moment we glimpsed Pwll Du Bay we knew this was a very special place. A beautiful and secluded beach literally a couple of minutes away, sea views from the bedroom and balcony, lovely spacious accommodation with a wood burner and everything you need for a break away from the noise and busyness of daily routine. The owners were...
