First let me say that the cottage and it's decor is very querky and has lots of characture. Most of the fixtures and fittings are good however, the two sofa's are old, worn and very uncomfortable to the point of not being able to sit for more than ten minutes before you slide off. The bed whilst being very comfortable...

Management response:

Dear Bryn, I am glad our expensive two year old leather sofas didn't wreak your stay too much. Parking is not the easiest if you don't have a car that can go up the lane behind our property where we have a garage. I know if your not a confident driver having stone walls either side of the lane can...

We had a lovely 3 nights in this property. Sarah was very accommodating when my partner was too ill to make the weekend we had booked and amended the booking to 3 weeks later at no extra cost, which we were super grateful for. The annex itself is charming and was bigger than we expected it to be. Really cosy...

A cosy and personal space with lovely furniture and fittings. Perfect for a romantic weekend or a little longer if visiting the area. Easy walking distance to the shops, Oystermouth castle and Mumbles foreshore. The only downside was the lack of parking but that need not put a dampener on your visit.

About the neighborhood
Walk or run around the cliffs. Visit the local beach or hop in the car ( or take your bike) and head down the Gower for a good pub lunch ( thats a good option rain or shine). Wander around the village for a little shopping or take the children to the pier to the penny arched ( well 10 penny now l guess) that's good on a rainy day. <BR><BR>Walk up and over Overland road down the other side to the beach and 'Surf Side' my fav coffee spot. In the summer it is idyllic and the winter we have a wood burning fire and friendly local banter. Joes ice cream is a must as most of us that were born here were reared on it (it's won many awards but plain vanilla is the original flavor usually with choc chips or choc & nuts) Windsurfing and Kiting are all on offer in... more
