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. Ty Cae Mawr sits at one end of a little row of three cottages, all with their own raised terrace area to the rear. This single storey cottage provides convenient ground floor accommodation. The open plan living/dining room has rugs on the wood floor and an electric log-effect fire creating a cosy atmosphere to cuddle up in at the end of the day. The well-fitted kitchen area is great for rustling up a feast at the end of a busy day. The twin bedroom and en-suite shower room make this the perfect retreat for friends or couples to get away together.
A nearby cycle track leads to the Mumbles, which is famous for its lighthouse and lifeboat station and 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 windsurfing; 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 birdwatching. 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. The many facilities of Swansea include restaurants, shops, theatres, leisure centre, concert halls, museums, golf courses, extensive parks and gardens. 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. Shops ½ mile.
Ty Cae Mawr can be booked together with Ty Gwyn (JYY), Ty Ysgubor (JYZ), Ty Berllan (OAB) and Ty Llaethdy (OAC) to accommodate up to 14 guests.

A very clean cottage in a quiet location within walking distance of the centre of Gowerton. Received a very warm welcome by the host who had a wealth of local knowledge for us. The friendly alpacas in the paddock were an added interest.

We really enjoyed our stay in Ty Cae Mawr. It was an excellent base for us for walking the Wales coastal path around the Gower peninsular. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and conveniently located. The cottage had everything we needed and there was plenty of easy on site parking. The alpacas in the paddock were fascinating to watch after a long day out walking and they made our stay even more enjoyable. The owner David was very friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and gave us plenty of recommendations for places to visit and for eating out. We would definitely return again as there is so much to see and do in the area, 1 week wasn't enough for us.
