Located next to the estuary and some lovely views, and with easy access to all Gower has to offer. Unfortunately the pub across the road is currently closed but there is a great chippy, Indian takeaway and a lovely café all very close by...and we sampled all three! There is a friendly local pub within a 10 minute stroll with great beer but no food. The cottage is cosy, spacious, spotlessly clean and has everything you might need during your stay. We would definitely return.
Cockle Shell Cottage, the location of Penclawdd, and of course the wonderful landlord and landlady exceeded ALL our expectations.
Beautiful very spacious cottage with a wonderful homely atmosphere. Great for us and our teenagers and dog! Penclawdd a very friendly and warm community. Local people all ages, but all as lovely and considerate as eachother towards us.
The Railway Inn across the road and the superb chip shop and pharmacy both next door, and of course the supermarket round the corner always deliver very high standards of very polite service and care. The bus service for easy access to Swansea and Cardiff great also.
Last but not least, the landlord and landlady very supportive and approachable before, during and after our stay.
WE ARE GOING BACK!!
Stayed for a few days in half term. Whilst the cottage doesn't look much on the outside and is situated on a busy road, we were pleasantly surprised.
Nicely furnished, very clean, lovely welcome tray. The whole cottage has been very thoughtfully furnished and is very comfortable. You can't hear the road, good amenities within walking distance (good pub opposite, great cafe for breakfast two doors down, fish and chips next door!) and well placed for sightseeing locally. We also took our dog and whilst there is no garden, you only need to cross the road to access the estuary walk.
All in all, highly recommended.
This is a wonderful holiday spot. The bay comes in just outside the front door; there is a wonderful restaurant across the street; a fish and chip shop next door has a lively business; a block away the grocery store supplies the village with all the necessities; lots of walking trails (or walkways) exercise your muscles. We hired a car and travelled to surrounding beaches and scenic towns. We kept the car for four days, then we concentrated on getting ready for London to end our holidays.
Our host and hostess were exceedingly helpful. We had come from Portugal and were out of communication for a full day, so we did not get their final emails. But the people in the Gower could not have been more helpful. They joined in the search for the Cockle Shell and eventually we all found it--much to our relief. After we got in, we had a splendid steak dinner at The Railway Inn.
Thank you, Adam and Ennir for a delightful experience, You live in a glorious place, and no doubt your presence and demeanor adds to its enchantment.
Nice cottage clean & cosy, lovely welcome pack. Village is more residential than holiday, however close to everything on the Gower and Swansea. Lots of places to eat and chippy next door is handy ;-)
