from the start of the narrow(just wider than my jeep)lane through the gate onto the rutted track winding down the side of the hill, watching the view change as we wove bounced slid and generally enjoyed our controlled(?) descent around the bends into a week of pure detached joy, through the woods, through the raging torrents (it was only axle deep, but worth turning around and doing it again for the fun of it) up the little lane and find the cottage on the right, you feel right at home straight away, a huge lounge living area with a massive fireplace (free wood too!) comfy big sofas tv(but who wants one of those when your chillin!) then up the spiral staircase to bed, lovely big and very comfy, with an ensuite as well, go onto the balcony and have your breakfast watching the sea or leave the windows open and listen to the waves at night, or failing that lay there and listen to the rain, it is Wales after all. a minutes walk gets you onto the beach with lovely views of the (sea!), this place has the biggest grains ofsand ive ever seen, there all the size of small rocks. go there check it out you will see what I mean. sea is very child friendly when its calm, very flat sloping bottom plenty of rock pools about, I taught my puppy to swim here, she loved it, you can walk all of the paths around here take care after or during rain, as they can be slippy and the river is cold, draw own conclusion from this statement, walk the cliffs either side and the views are worth it, so is the coffe shop, beautiful cakes, well worth the walk, if you run out of goods beer food etc, drive/walk back up the way in, worth it for the splashing in the stream and the coop at the top of the hill has a good selection, strangely enough so do the pubs, all reccomended, we had a lvely week here very chillin just sitting in the garden and chattin to the walkers going by made it a very friendly place, and you cannot beat watching the sun go down with beers on the beach, would I go back, yes booked again for this year, a lovely relaxing week with no hassles, cut yourself off from humanity, web,tv etc and enjoy silence(music permitted), you will reap the benefits.
If you need to escape for a few days of peaceful relaxation then this is the place for you!!! Great walks, coastal and inland. The beach is a mixture of sand and pebbles with only the occasional walker passing through. Circular walk to Caswell Bay a must, sad that the surf shop was closed so couldn’t hire a paddle board! Lovely shop and cafe the other way along the coastal path to Southgate. Would have walked on through to Oxwich had the poor dog not cut her foot. You will need to take up the owners offer to drive you down the track to the Cottage if you don’t have a sturdy 4x4.....and even then it is only for the experienced of drivers to attempt. The track down is certainly a great start to the adventure! Once there you don’t need a vehicle to enjoy this heavenly place. The Cottage Annexe itself is a little tired looking and basic but more than adequate for a lovely peaceful break. Great wood burner and plenty of dry wood for it, this really added to the atmosphere plus sitting out on the balcony each morning pure bliss! We will definitely be heading back to this hidden gem.....armed with paddle board next time!
Beautiful and quiet, beach on the doorstep, amazing walks over the cliffs. Barley my dog and I could have stayed forever. We will be back. Woof Woof.
What a fabulous place, so peaceful and remote. Loads of places to walk, stunning scenery, great food - what more could anyone want.
This is just the coolest place we've ever stayed. Rustic but fantastic. It's even a real adventure just on the journey down the cliff. Bob and Kath are great, the beach is great, we cooked on a fire on the beach most nights and slept with the French doors open listening to the surf. Wish it were ours!!!!
