Swansea

Swansea, ‘The Waterfront City’, enjoys a prime location on the southwest coast of Wales. Swansea Bay extends for some 5 miles of sandy beach, where you can enjoy days out exploring the coast and countryside and of course the stunning beauty of the Gower Peninsula.

Swansea is undoubtedly a city of contrasts, where historic buildings blend effortlessly with the fabulous modern facilities on offer. A fine example of Swansea’s redevelopment is the stunning Marina and Maritime Quarter, which is an award-winning complex of leisure facilities and attractions. These include the National Waterfront Museum and the Swansea Museum.

The Marina is just a short walk from the many shops, restaurants and pubs of the city centre. In the centre, also stands a grand reminder of the city’s long history, Swansea Castle. Although what remains of the castle today is far from complete, it’s a fine and rather unusual sight, surrounded as it is by the modern buildings of the city.

The Gower Peninsula on which Swansea stands is famed for its beauty, has magnificent coastal views and award winning beaches. Discover the many delightful towns and villages of the area; including just a few miles along the Peninsula the delightful seaside village of Mumbles. This really is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with magnificent seascapes and coastal paths where you can blow the cob webs away and de-stress from modern life. The beaches are wonderful; clean, sandy and uncrowded.

From a beautiful coastal setting and historic splendour to family attractions and fine shopping, this area really does have it all.

    These four holiday properties (refs 31182, 31183, 31184 and 31185) are situated on the working sheep and cattle farm that was once the home farm of the historic Plas Cilybebyll Estate. The cottages, whose owners also live at the farm, are located between the Brecon Beacons National Park and Gower Peninsula. The traditional stone buildings are set in a courtyard, alongside the picturesque River Clydach where wildlife flourishes – heron, wild trout, dipper, squirrels and red kites have all been spotted from the cottage windows. The walks start on your doorstep, including the farm trail on-site, where guests are welcome to explore over 100 acres of private countryside that includes bluebell woodland, mountain streams and hillside pastures, with panoramic views of the Welsh countryside. There is much to explore in the surrounding areas and interests for all ages, such as The National Showcaves of Wales, the stunning beaches of the Gower (Britain’s first designated Area of Outstanding National Beauty), the Victorian seaside resort of Mumbles with its promenade, and the Vale of Neath, which is renowned for its waterfall walks and for the energetic Afan Forest Park, home to 5 world-class trails for the mountain biking enthusiasts. The complex is conveniently located to enjoy day trips to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park or the spectacular Glamorganshire Heritage Coast. Swansea itself with its many bars, restaurants and shopping is within easy driving and Cardiff, the bustling capital city of Wales, is well worth a visit with its castle, museum and Millennium Stadium.
