“Comfortable large modern cottage”
Reviewed 18 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

My husband and I arrived tired after a long flight from the US and the drive from London. We were pleasantly surprised by the immaculate, comfortable and well equipped accommodations. We were left a nice bottle of wine, tea, and Welsh cakes. It was great to enjoy a relaxing cup of tea and cakes after the hair-raising ride from London (this was my first time in 8 years to drive on the left). This was our first stop on our first visit to Wales, and we were not disappointed. There is a market just blocks away, and the award winning Cariad Cafe just a few doors down where we enjoyed several meals including a traditional Welsh breakfast of cockles and laverbread on our first morning. We explored the area including Arthur’s Stone and Caswell Bay with the marvelous sea pebbles, but mostly we just enjoyed the quiet countryside and the beautiful sunset view just across the road.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 15 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

A lovely cottage, spacious and welcoming. We really enjoyed our time here and made good use of the local takeaways! Thank you to Adam, his communication made the whole process very easy. We hope to return some day and explore more of the Gower.

“Lovely Cottage would come here again”
Reviewed 19 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Warm modern pleasantly furnished and clean cottage. Mostly well equipped but could do with tiny improvements. Well situated next to a chip shop, parking across the busy road and round the corner from supermarket. Within easy reach of swansea. Perfect for a relaxing break with or without your dogs.

Kitchen was fairly well equipped but could have done with more baking sheets for the people that enjoy cooking. Think a tumble drier and a dishwasher would also make it perfect, if you want perfect from a holiday kitchen. Tumble dryer would certainly help with how many clothes to bring. However, there is a launderette thirteen minutes drive away.

Two bedrooms with heavenly beds and a large bathroom upstairs. Main bedroom could have done with a small dressing table and wardrobe but would have been pushed for room re the wardrobe.

Downstairs nicely furnished but one chair seemed to sink in need of looking at (right hand side of two seater) so therefore quite worn. Dvd seemed to make buzzing noise in background of playing DVDs. Generous amount of DVDs left for guests amusement. House was warm with radiators and wood burner available for the adventurous to use; however, we didn't use this.

House overall was spacious, downstairs being bigger than upstairs and lots of things in the cottage for amusements including guitars which was unusual to find. All very thoughtful. Local leaflets and information as well as book about the property explaining things and local attractions; also very thoughtful by owners.

Basics left in kitchen, tea, coffee, milk and wine. Most thoughtful.

Yard small and gravelled. As many areas of Wales no black bin, but black bags put out the back on a Friday were not attacked by wandering animals.

Cafe few doors away plus chip shop next door helps with the catering somewhat. Dogs were happy even if cottage on main thoroughfare was pretty quiet and sleep easy to do with no disturbances.

Price of cottage for time of year was probably a bit expensive. Communication of owner Adam frequent and quick and attentive. Did ask me if I wanted to cancel TWICE before we came, on me asking questions; this was a little bit off putting as they do have a moderate cancellation policy which means that mostly if you do cancel then you lose a lot of money. I know business is business but why ask twice ...hmm...apart from that and the high standard of accommodation and thoughtfulness of things left for use of guests in cottage I have scored a four out of five. Just a few bits to iron out and I would have deemed this a five...So overall a good stay and well recommended.

Thank you Julia for your kind review. I'm really pleased you would stay again. Sorry about the misunderstanding in relation to the offer to cancel. One of the reason's we offered to cancel was because you asked a number of questions and as some of the things you asked for were not available we wanted to offer you the option to cancel rather than see you disappointed. We would have been happy to offer you a full refund. Sorry if his was not clear. We will take on board your feedback as we value guest views and are always striving to improve. I would point out that the upstairs bedroom has a walk in wardrobe adjacent to the door. We've had compliments about the well stocked kitchen and will be sure to leave more baking sheets in future. We also like to think we are reasonably priced and regularly check prices in the area to compare. We think the charge to your party of what worked out at £10 per head per night and included your dogs was very reasonable. Best wishes Adam.

“Cosy cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 7 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

person found this review helpful

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.
