Attractive and well furnished property on the north side of the Gower peninsular. Has all the facilities required for a stay and off road parking too.
Great views across the River Loughor from either the sheltered garden or the balcony on the rear bedroom.
Easy access to the M4 and South Wales and beyond. However the Gower peninsular has plenty to offer without venturing off onto the motorways and A roads should you wish that.
The only issue for some people will be the road outside the property as it can be busy so the front 2 bedrooms maybe too noisy for some people's liking. We slept in the rear bedroom and the noise didn't bother us too much although it was there.
Lyndon Cottage is very well equiped with everything you need on holiday, it is clean, well equipmed and attractively furnished. However, it is advertised as sleeping six (correct), three bedrooms (correct) and two bathrooms (WRONG!!)
There is ONE bathroom to cater for six guests! Then there is the useful downstairs loo with a washbasin, to save having to form a queue upstairs in the morning!.
There were four of us, so the sitting room was OK but there is not sufficient comfy lounge furniture to seat six, two would have to bring in the dining room chairs or sit in a wicker chair or on a stool.
It must be said that the view out the back is beautiful with the tidal estuary, particularly from the balcony and there are indeed some wonderful sunsets.
Sadly it is a case of lovely house, bad location with up to seven hundred vehicles an hour thundering past the front door and front bedroom windows on the busy main road. Although the volume of traffic reduces during the night, there is still an awful lot of traffic, none of which considers the speed limit and the noise is unbearable. If you are attempting to sleep in one of the two bedrooms at the front of the house, a restful night is out of the question with the really heavy traffic
rumbling past within feet of your bedroom window from about 5.30am. Sadly this also puts you off sitting in the garden - lovely estuary views one side but you can't hear the birds due to the heavy traffic the other side of the fence.
If you ilve in a city where the traffic never stops, then I guess this would not worry you and no doubt you wouldn't take any notice of the constant noise, but sadly, this was not for us and it was a relief to get home again and sit in our own garden. It really is a shame, as the owners have done a fantastic job of refurbishing and furnishing the property and it has to be said that Richard could not have been more helpful.
This cottage was so comfortable to stay in, it had everything you needed for a very relaxing holiday. The location was perfect for visiting the area, with easy access to beaches and wonderful walks. Even food was not a problem with many eating places within a short distance as well as a small supermarket. We loved it, and would love to return with the rest of our family who we know would enjoy it just as much.
We were so looking forward to our weeks holiday in Lyndon Cottage, Penclawdd and we were not disappointed. It's an excellent cottage and extremely well-appointed and comfortable. Loved the bedroom balcony. Within easy reach of all The Gowers beautiful beaches and places of interest.
