Avalon is just 10 minutes from Rhossili, sits in a unique position in Britain's First Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  This luxury house has far reaching views of The Gower Peninsula, and on clear days the Bristol Channel to the Devon Coastline and Dartmoor beyond.

  • Set in manicured grounds of close to an acre this house cries out for family gatherings. Al fresco meals and BBQ's under the shady pergola, or simply lounging on the sun flooded patio, ideally positioned to catch even the last of the rays of the day.
  • The house faces Cefn Bryn, the backbone of The Gower where wild ponies roam free, sheep graze and cows wander past. The location really is special - no streetlights to spoil the night skies.
  • The flower filled front gardens lead to the rustic porch complete with stable doors. Enter into the hallway and the house takes on a more formal feel. The smart oak and tiled floors throughout the ground floor  make for an easy care holiday, a place where dogs can slouch and children can happliy play.
  • This house is light filled and there a stunning views across miles of unspoilt country from every window.  The hallway leads to a cosy lounge with smart sofas and garden views. The wood burner will cast a warm glow on colder nights and the sun floods in through south facing windows.
  • The bespoke and  well equipped kitchen is a cooks dream, featuring black granite worktops, a Rangemaster stove and an iconic Smeg fridge-freezer.  There are many gadgets for the keen cook, be warned it will be hard to remain indoors when you are faced with stunning views through the panoramic window.
  • Leading off the kitchen is the family room, you cannot fail to be impressed, the garden reaches up to the bifold doors and roses in bloom add a delicious scent to the country air. This is the room to gather, there is a farmhouse dining table for at least 6 people and a nook area for cuddling up with  a glass of vino. Beyond is a convenient utility with side access to kick off muddy boots and pamper tired pets.
  • On the first floor the master bedroom has a super king size sleigh bed and antique furnishings. The second bedroom is a bright and airy double with a high sleeper to make the most of yet more stunning views and starry night skies.  The third bedroom has bunk beds - such fun for children.  

  • A luxury wetroom which is  fully tiled in limestone is also on the first floor. Enjoy a spa like experience here, the clear glazed windows  let you gaze over the Gower whilst you enjoy the monsoon power shower.

Try Kate's Gower Brownies and Lizzie's Welshcakes, not forgetting Estelle's Gower Pickles and fresh ground Coffee from The Gower Coffee Company, all made within just a couple of miles of Avalon.
About The Area
Three Cliffs Bay
  • Three Cliffs Bay is one of Gowers' most picturesque beaches, and it's not hard to see why. The valley leading down to the sea complete with castle, the salt marshes and the sand dunes, and the three cliffs themselves makes this destination unique. The cliffs are popular with climbers, and what a location, you can actually walk underneath the cliffs through an archway. There are stepping stones to cross the river on the Penmaen side of the bay (west), but watch the tide to get back. The beach has a seasonal lifeguard station, please take care with children and dogs.
Rhossili Beach and Worms Head
  • Just out of the front door and over the road you will find yourself on the All Wales Coastal Path, and just a short walk to iconic Rhossili Bay and Worms Head (NT).
  • The Bay Bistro just minutes away serves a great breakfast. Wonderful views of Rhossili Beach and home-made cakes. At low tide you can see the skeleton of The Helvetia shipwreck pushing its ribs out of the sand.
Oxwich Bay
  • Just 5 miles takes you to the glorious privately owned Oxwich Bay, part of Penrice Estate.  Walk for hours among the unspoiled protected sand dunes and sweeping bay.  Hire a sailing dinghy, kayak or longboard to admire Gower from the sea. Seals and dolphins are a common sight near these unspoiled shores.  
Langland Bay, Mumbles and the Pier
    • 15 minutes by car will take you to a beach lost in time.  Langland Bay has a majesty from a bygone era.  Beach huts climb the hill behind the promenade. There are tennis courts for hire, a golf course with an enviable beach view and restaurants and cafes. 
    • Mumbles is minutes away.  Oystermouth Castle majestically overlooking Swansea Bay is one of Wales' finest castles.  Recently restored, explore parts that have been hidden away for centuries, and learn about the castle's exciting history -  ancient graffiti art from the 14th century, private staircases leading from vaults to previous banqueting halls and a 30-foot high glass bridge. Events are held throughout the year.  
    • There is something for everyone at Mumbles Pier young and old alike –  arcade machines, a bowling alley. Treat everybody to ice creams and delicious coffee at Verdi's Italian Cafe to top off the perfect day as you watch the sailing in Swansea Bay.
    The Gower Way and King Arthur's Stone
    • Step outside onto the green to follow the ancient byway to Cefn Bryn and King Arthur's Stone, a Neolithic burial chamber that stands mysteriously at the top. Legend says it was  formed from a stone thrown out of King Arthur's shoe - stunning sunsets and panoramic views of the North and South Gower beaches await you here. it is possible to see all the way to  Pembrokeshire and Lundy Island from this magnificent atmospheric place.  Wild ponies wonder freely, Red Kites fly overhead, this is a truly beautiful wild place.
