Vivienne Smith - 1st October 2018

The cottage was spotlessly clean, the beds were comfortable with lovely good quality bedding. Everything we needed available to use in the kitchen. We wanted separate bedrooms with ensuite facilities; all four bedrooms had bath/shower facilities. We were able to relax, cook nice food and enjoy the home from home comforts of this beautiful barn. Very handy to park outside the front door too. We had planned to sit upstairs in the large lounge with the wood burner on in the evenings but as the weather was warm and we both loved the snug, we sat there in the evenings with a nice glass of wine (or two !). We met the owner the day after we arrived and she couldn't have been more helpful, even offered to drive us to a pub or restaurant at night and collect us if we couldn't get a taxi ! The home made welsh cakes amd a bottle of fizz on arrival were very much appreciated and were divine. If we had to make any suggestions, it would be to have an extension plug facility in the snug room downstairs for charging telephones/tablets etc but this is not a criticism; just would have been handy. If you want a break away with all the comforts of home, this is just the place to go, we loved it and will be back !

Nicola and Ailee - 24th September 2018

An excellent rental where nothing has been spared. Delightful barn conversion and a pleasure to deal with the owners and management. Very well appointed. We would be happy to return.

Jacqui Burgess - 7th September 2018

Excellent accommodation, well thought out barn conversion and well presented. Owners next door, completely unobtrusive, but very helpful and friendly if asked anything.

Stephen Wallace - 26th August 2018

Excellently appointed holiday accommodation in peaceful surroundings. Spacious enough to give privacy to all. Appreciated being able to bring our dog and was pleased to find Gower generally a dog friendly place. Plenty of places to visit, beautiful beaches and great pubs.

Y Southall - 27th July 2018

About the Area

Three Cliffs Bay

  • Three Cliffs¬†is¬†one of Gowers' most iconic beaches and it is easy to see why. The river valley leading down to the sea is complete with castle, salt¬†marshes¬†and sand dunes. The Tor Headland is¬† popular with climbers who can often be seen at dizzying heights - hilgh above the sea. There are stepping stones to cross the river on the Penmaen side of the bay (west) but watch out that the tide doesn¬ít cut off your return! The beach has a seasonal lifeguard station - please take care with children and dogs.¬† The Wales Coastal Path can be accessed from here and continues right around Gower.

Mumbles Village
