A pretty character cottage, lovingly restored by the owner and ideally located in the village of Bishopston on the Gower Peninsula. 5 minutes drive to golden sandy beaches at Caswell Bay. Sleeps 2 adults and up to 2 children. Pet-friendly.
We have had a wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage. The weather has been great and we have enjoyed the walks the Gower has to offer. We will definitely be back, hopefully for longer next time.
Fantastic cottage and well equipped. We've had a fabulous holiday and felt very welcome by neighbours. Impressed by the beauty of the Gower. Hope to visit again. Thanks for the generous welcome pack.
Back again to this beautiful cottage and stunning part of the world. Blessed with the weather again!! Southgatre beach as beautiful as ever and had Joe's ice-cream. Thanks again. Looking forward to next year.
Pleasant and relaxing holiday. Views and walks beautiful and much enjoyed by the dogs. Hope to visit again in very near future. lovely cottage and neighbours.
Lovely cottage! Attention to detail is fantastic & watching the sun set over Worm's Head at Rhossili was wonderful!
Thank you for a wonderful stay and for being so accommodating to us all. Lovely quirky cottage. Beautiful surroundings and great walking. Thank you again.
Was beyond our expectations in terms of charm, character and size.
Marvellous, just what w wanted
Well appointed, quirky and delightful cottage. Lovely sun room at the back of the house with butterfly- and bee-friendly garden. The hot water supply was consistently available, which was great for showers after the beach. A very nice pub within easy walking distance for dinner. Wonderful wood burning stove, so great in winter. Only thing missing is somewhere to plug in an electric toothbrush! Location wise, it is situated on a surprisingly busy road into the village, so occasionally noisy - and you have to keep an eye out for the traffic as no pavement in parts.
We had a fabulous stay. Situated in a lovely part of Wales, the cottage is quirky with a multitude of different items to see. A lot of thought has gone into the presentation and it works really well. The back garden is a proper cottage garden and it's a real suntrap! It's the best cottage we've stayed in and hope to return!
Excellent, would recommend!
Beautiful cottage. Fully equipped for all our needs. Lovely conservatory and garden too. Situated in an ideal spot. The village has two pubs and a Co-open. It is not far from the Mumbles and many other lovely places in the Gower.
Very cute and tradional cottage. Well presented and very clean.
This cottage is such a gem! The attention to detail in the cottage is wonderful, the owners have created a truly wonderful place to stay. Malthouse Cottage was the best equip cottage I have ever stayed in, it had everything we could have needed. We stayed for the Christmas period and they very kindly decorated the cottage with a tree and lovely decorations - it made it so special! The cottage was well located, we walked to Casswell Bay easily from the cottage, Mumbles is a short drive and other locations within the Gower are easily reached. A perfect cottage!
Fair value overall thanks

Langland Bay and Pennard Golf Clubs
Within 3 miles in each direction are two spectacular golf clubs, Pennard and Langland Bay - both offering a great golfing experience and both located on the coastal path, surrounded by glorious walking and spectacular views.
Three Cliffs Bay
Three Cliffs is an iconic beach and one of Gower's most dramatic. The river valley meanders down to the sea past castle, salt marsh and sand dunes and at the tide's edge the three cliffs are enchanting in all seasons. Ramblers, climbers and beach-goers flock here but the beach is vast and always feels as if it belongs solely to nature even in the height of summer. Take a picnic - there are no cafes to spoil the view here. The beach has a seasonal lifeguard station - please take care with children.
Oxwich Bay and the acclaimed Beach House Restaurant
Just a few miles away is the glorious, privately owned Oxwich beach - part of Penrice Estate. Walk for hours among the protected, pristine sand dunes and ancient woodlands and across the sweeping bay - or hire a sailing dinghy, kayak or longboard to admire Gower from the sea. Seals and porpoises are a common sight near these unspoiled shores.
Sample locally sourced, cutting-edge food at The Beach House Restaurant - the newly opened sister restaurant to Coast at Saundersfoot and The Grove at Narberth - and dine at the waters edge with stunning views and the sounds of the waves.
Mumbles Village and Oystermouth Castle
Mumbles is minutes away and the recently restored Oystermouth Castle, majestically overlooking Swansea Bay, is one of Wales' finest. Explore parts that have been hidden away for centuries and learn about the castle's exciting history. See ancient graffiti art from the 14th century, private staircases leading from vaults to banqueting halls and walk out onto a 30-foot high glass bridge. Events are held here throughout the year.
In the bustling seaside village you will also find a host of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants to suit every taste. Try Bistro Pierre for classic French cuisine and awe-inspiring views across Swansea Bay and the Lighthouse. The Gower Crab Shack on The Promenade serves fresh local seafood for you to enjoy straight from the paper - dining doesn't get fresher than this.
The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust's National Centre in Llanelli has excellent facilities, making it a great place for a day out for the whole family. Covering some 450 acres, the reserve has a host of varied habitats including pools, lagoons and streams adjoining the saltmarshes and shore of Burry Inlet in Carmarthenshire. The views of Gower across the estuary are enchanting from here and anyone with a general interest in nature and wildlife will find this an absorbing and enjoyable day out.
