“Fabulous location - lovely cottage”
Reviewed 4 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The cottage is in a beautiful location, right on the beach. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and got us set up very quickly. The cottage was very clean and well equipped and the bedroom overlooks the sea.

Its remoteness is part of its charm, but it's at least a 20 minute walk across fields to where you normally park your car, so go prepared with wellies or good boots and gaiters, or with enough supplies to stay put! Also, a torch or two is a must.

All in all, a lovely stay in a romantic setting - will definitely be going back!

“Slice of heaven on earth”
Reviewed 11 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Just returned from a breath taking break at Ship cottage. Beautiful romantic cottage on the stunning Gower coast. Superb hosts, stunning location and landscape that changes on a daily basis...nature at it's best! Extensively travelled the U.K. and this is by far the most beautiful place we have ever stayed.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The location of the cottage is brilliant for walkers. I wouldn't advise it if you aren't keen on walking though, as the cottage is only accessible by 4x4, so the owner had someone come up into the village and pick us up and then drop us back on our last day. So your car is about a 15 minute walk up a hill from the house, but we went for a bit of an outdoor holiday so it was perfect for us. The cottage is spacious with a log burning stove and a balcony overlooking the sea, which was an awesome breakfast spot and we got some lovely free range eggs and local wine given to us as a welcome gift. We were also allowed to borrow a couple of kayaks from the owners, which we put to good use! Could have easily spent a whole week there and we were very sad to leave, will definitely be back

“STUNNING LOCATION”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed here for 2 glorious days. We have visited Gower for over 20 years but this was the best find ever. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. We are booking for next year (and the year after and the year after that). Be warned that you are likely to want to stay there for ever. Many thanks to Kath and Bob for letting us share their idylic life style.

“A perfect location to relax and recharge your battery”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We used our own vehicle so the adventure started straight away! The lane to the cottage is not as daunting as it looks.
Bob and Kath were great hosts, available, but not intrusive.
They descibed the bay as a "bubble" away from the stress of life. Sooo correct. It is like being on a desert island. The beach is a minute away and very quiet. We were blessed with beautiful weather, but we would have been just as content if it wasn't. It would make a great base for a walking holiday too.
