A family group will love the space in this converted barn complete with a pool table and a hot tub hidden in the garden.

Set in 18 acres of beautiful rural countryside in the heart of Gower, this delightfully converted barn provides great family holiday accommodation. Adjoining the owners’ home, it is set in a relaxed and peaceful location. Full advantage is taken of the views from the decking area, which overlooks a fenced play area, fields, woodlands and a large wild flower meadow - as well as a pond with geese and ducks. There is also a hot tub for visitors’ use. This leads further on to a wooden summerhouse with a large deck overlooking a lake. This is truly a nature lover’s paradise, for young and old alike.
The Willows is ideally placed for exploring the Gower countryside, coastline and footpaths as it is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Nearby is Parc Le Breos, with its Roman burial grounds and pony trekking centre. Adjacent is the Three Cliffs Beach, which is overlooked by Pennard Castle and boasts an amazing view of the river winding down into the sea. A trip to Mumbles is well worth a visit, especially for those who enjoy fine cuisine. Mumbles is renowned for its collection of excellent restaurants and cafés, as well as being a traditional seaside town. One of the most curious landscapes in Gower is the reedy nature reserve around Oxwich Burrows, a flatland of salt and freshwater marshes. The marshes are dotted with pools and surrounded by ancient woodland which lead down to one of the most coveted beaches at Oxwich Bay. A local pub can be found nearby. Shop 1 mile.

All on one level. Spacious beamed living/dining room with wood-burning stove in stone fireplace, French doors and wooden floor. Beamed well-equipped, farmhouse-style kitchen with slate floor.

    I spent a long weekend here with friends in February and they were so welcoming on our arrival. It's a lovely place to just get away for the weekend, in a very secluded area which is so peaceful and some lovely country walks. Would highly recommend and stay here again. Beautiful hottub which feels like your in a tropical Forrest with the bushes around our. Donkeys and horses on the farm are friendly for a pet.

    The owner is constantly on the site controling every single thing you do . He even gets involve with touching your stuff placed outside the door. Comes in the house without asking premission specially if the door is left open . Out of the 5 nights i was there i could only use the jacuzzi once as 2 time it was out of use and 1 time the water was really cold . The cottage is nice and clean experience cold be alot better without the owner constantly on site checking on you .

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We were disappointed to read your review following your recent stay at The Willows. During the stay, there was lots of noise, items missing and breakages. Bottles and glasses had been used in the hot tub and broken, we had to make the hot tub unavailable to enable us to clean the area and make sure there was no glass splinters for safety reasons. A porcelain sink had to be replaced as it had been broken. The customers left their rubbish (bottles, cans and food) on the doorstep - these had to be removed for obvious reasons.

    On arrival there were lovely touches like flowers in each room and a wonderful welcome basket. Our party enjoyed barbecues together, quiet times to read by one of the two lakes or a peaceful row on the boat, walks from the garden down to the Three Cliffs Bay, pool and darts competitions and a daily soak in the hot tub. Our hosts were incredibly welcoming and helpful without being intrusive and you can also book surfing lessons from their son who was incredibly patient and had all three of his students standing on there surf boards after one lesson. I can't recommend it enough.

    We loved staying at the Willows. It is a spacious and tastefully decorated cottage on a farm. Our dog had the time of her life as she had the freedom to charge around the beautiful grounds chasing leaves and birds! The cottage was really clean and was well stocked with everything we needed for a fantastic stay - we were even allowed to borrow wet suits and body boards from the games room. The little attentions to detail in the cottage such as the relaxing music CD player in the bathroom, made for a real 'home from home' feel. The owners were always at hand and really helpful without being at all intrusive. The children loved playing in their own private playground and the hot tub was the icing on the cake, enjoyed by all ages.

    We had a fantastic time at the Willows. We were in Wales for the week for our sons graduation, so all the family were in the house (8 plus a baby). The hot tub was fabulous and my husband, my son and myself thoroughly enjoyed the fishing on the bottom lake. We had a very pleasant afternoon spent with the whole family in the summer house by the lake. The games room was great for a bit of family competitiveness. The barbeque area was perfect. Steve and Karen the owners were really friendly but left us just to get on with enjoying our holiday. Steve has great local knowledge of best beaches etc. The welcome pack was a really nice touch. Having the extra fridge in the games room was great for keeping the drinks chilled. We would definitely return.

    Particularly liked the generous welcome pack. The owner went out of his way to ensure we were comfortable & had everything we needed.
