Why we recommend Swallows Nest...

A hidden gem, this Gower holiday cottage is perfect for couples with shared hot tub, stunning sea views and delightful award winning gardens

About Swallows Nest
Characterful Gower retreat with a shared hot tub and use of stunning award winning gardens
  • It is a short walk from this delightful cottage just outside the village of Llanmadoc in North West Gower, to the secluded beach at Whiteford Sands.
  • Beautifully appointed throughout with great attention to detail this is a perfect choice for couples wanting to escape to the coast.
  • The ancient whitewashed walls of this historic cottage are pierced with arrow slits giving tempting glimpses of the award winning gardens beyond.
  • A mezzanine bedroom with wooden four-post double bed overlooks the charming period-style living and dining area.
  • Swallows Nest has its own private garden to the rear but guests are also welcome to stroll around the larger gardens and make use of the hot tub, a barbecue, summerhouse and orchard.
  • The helpful and welcoming owners live in the nearby farmhouse.




About The Area

Whiteford Sands near Gower retreat

  • The Millenium Coastal Path runs right outside the property and leads to miles of dunes at Whiteford Sands and a National Trust nature reserve with an abundance of bird life, wildlife and plants including rare orchids.
  • Bring your own horse to Swallows Rest where grazing is complimentary.
  • Take a fascinating walk through the nature reserve to Whitford Point where, built in 1803, Britain's only surviving cast iron lighthouse still stands.
  • Linger on the point and gather shellfish in season. There are mussels, cockles and razor clams in abundance.
Beaches
  • You will be spoilt for choice with Gower beaches. Try Llangenith for surfing (lessons available), Three Cliffs Bay for stunning scenery and coasteering or Zapcat rides at Oxwich Bay. 
  • The Victorian beach huts at Langland Bay are a joy and Swansea Bay boasts the 2nd largest tidal reach in the world - breathtaking at full tide.

Oystermouth Castle, Mumbles 

  • Majestically overlooking Swansea Bay, this is perhaps one of Wales' finest castles. Explore parts that have been hidden away for centuries and learn about the castle's exciting history. Events are held throughout the year.

Mumbles Village

  • Mumbles village is worth a day trip. Walk along the promenade to reach the Pier and ice cream parlours at Knab Rock. 
  • Verdis Italian Ice Cream Parlour is a great stop for coffee and semi fredo.
  • There are plenty of shops to distract you ranging from high-end shops and independent boutiques to quirky galleries.

Boat and aeroplane trips

  • Various boat tours are available for exploring the Gower coast from Mumbles and Oxwich and ending at Rhossili Bay.
  • Popular sea fishing trips can be booked at Swansea Marina.
  • Fly over Gower and get a birds-eye view. Especially spectacular is Worm’s Head, Rhossilli. The name for this iconic rocky outcrop, which has claimed many a smuggler’s loot, comes from the Viking word for the national emblem of Wales -'wurm' the dragon.

Places to Eat

  • Try a scrumptious afternoon tea at the Village Community Shop in Llanmadoc (closed Sunday). 
  • Travel a further 10 minutes to The Britannia Inn. Eat al fresco or inside this characterful 17th century tavern with beams taken from ships wrecked by smugglers. 
  • The Kings Head at Llangenith serves home cooked Thai food, Indian dishes and good old fashioned Gower beer battered fish and home-made chips!
Family Days Out
  • Visit Oystermouth Castle and the traditional seaside pier at Mumbles, the National Waterfront Museum, Clyne Gardens, Plantasia and Room Escape in Swansea and Big Pit National Coal Museum in Blaenafon.
