Description

For cycling enthusiasts, a nearby track leads to the Mumbles, famous for its picturesque location, lighthouse and seaside attractions.

"In the peace of Gower’s gentle farmland – with beaches and bays close at hand . . ."

The Gower Peninsula with its rolling countryside and miles of unspoilt coastline is the setting for these very comfortable holiday cottages which themselves are set on 30 acres of land. The cottages have been furnished and equipped to a very high standard, and are double glazed throughout. Visitors enjoy shared use of a games room with table tennis and a pool table, and may relax in the garden area; bicycles are available for hire in Swansea and facilities for water sports and fishing are close at hand. There is easy access to many beautiful sandy beaches and coves within 10 miles or so, and opportunities nearby for scenic moorland and coastal walks in this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Gowerton, with its shops and pub, and local trains to west and mid Wales, is only half a mile away.
A nearby cycle track leads to the Mumbles, which is famous for its lighthouse and lifeboat station and also boasts seaside attractions, a pleasant promenade and lots of sailing dinghies and small boats. At Penclawdd (3 miles), cockle fishermen go out on to the mudflats at low tide with horse-drawn carts to rake out the cockle harvest. Many of the Gower’s sandy beaches are backed by dunes, and some offer excellent wind-surfing; there are sandy coves with rock pools and the coastal path leads to wonderful cliff-top views. Inland, the sheep and sturdy Gower ponies roam moorlands which offer further opportunities for walks, picnics, riding and bird-watching.
A number of National Nature Reserves are home to rare birds and plants. The glistening Loughor Estuary provides a haven for waders and geese among the rice-grass, sea lavender and marsh mallow of Llanrhidian Marsh, all overlooked by the summit of Cilifor Top, which is crowned with an extensive Iron Age fort; a nearby lane passes the ruin of Weobley Castle, once a fortified manor house; on the Gower, visitors can explore history and natural history side by side at every turn, almost everywhere with the sound of the sea in the background.
Hang-gliders take off from Rhossili Down, now in the care of the National Trust, and swoop over the bay, whose three-mile sweep of golden sand is one of the most spectacular on the Welsh coast and often offers ideal conditions for surfing. The many facilities of Swansea include restaurants, shops, theatres, leisure centre, concert halls, museums, golf courses, extensive parks and gardens, a marina and the Welsh National Swimming Pool and sandy beaches with bathing (6 miles). A 30-minute drive leads to the National Botanical Gardens in Carmarthenshire, whilst an 18-hole golf course and a wildlife and wetlands sanctuary are both only ten minutes away by car.
Within an hours’ drive and well worth a visit is the lively capital city of Cardiff with its National Museum of Wales at St Fagans, as well as Cardiff Bay and the new tidal barrage. Nowadays, the Gower is more easily accessible by road, and the warming effect of the Gulf Stream means that the weather for visitors to the cosy cottages of Cefn Gorwydd can be exceptionally pleasant at any time of year. Shops ½ mile.

This cottage adjoins Ty Gwyn and is equipped to similarly high standards. Open-plan, beamed living/dining room with rugs on quarry-tiled floor and electric fire set in stone fireplace. Fitted kitchen area. Open-tread stairs to first floor: Double bedroom and single bedroom, both with sloping ceilings. Shower room and toilet.

    David the owner was so welcoming, which made our stay all the more enjoyable. The cottage was cosy and extremely well equipped. Ideal location for visiting the Gower although a car is essential.

    A really lovely spot and the house was cosy and clean. It's not the most modern but it's a lovely place to stay. The owner lives on site and is very warm, friendly and welcoming ... there was even a bottle of wine waiting for us and a carton of milk for the much-needed cup of tea on arrival! The Gower area is gorgeous and, again, the owner was helpful with information about the best places to visit.

    Lovely well-equipped cottage, fabulous location, owner most helpful. Very convenient for elderly car-free visitors like us. Only 15 mins easy walk from the mainline Gowerton station (but 20 mins back uphill!), and 5 mins from bus stops. Only difficulty was awkward roof windows.
