Oyster Cottage lies within the old fishing village of Mumbles, the nets and oyster pots are now just a memory but Mumbles has evolved into a diverse holiday destination. The village winds up the hill and along to the headland. Always a vibrant place, you will be spoilt for choice with restaurants, cafes, galleries, quality boutiques, independent delis, grocers, traditional pubs, and bars just along ’The Prom’ as it is affectionately known around these parts. The cottage is in a great spot for beach goers, walkers and cyclists. Mumbles Pier and Lifeboat Station are an easy stroll away along The Promenade, from here you can take the coastal path to Limeslade Bay and on further still to Langland and Caswell Bays. Strikeout eastwards along The Prom to Swansea Marina a really interesting destination about 5 miles away along the Promenade. Here you can discover why Wales’ greatest poet Dylan Thomas loved this town at The Dylan Thomas Centre and delve into the seafaring and industrial heritage of Swansea at The Maritime Museum, both new and vibrant visitor centres. Beach 350 yards.

    Always used ‘Quality Cottages’ for years and have never been disappointed . Oyster cottage currently not making the grade of previous cottages . Oyster cottage and location have the potential to be much higher scoring . Just a few changes would secure a more quality end product . Most of these were already mentioned in the guest book . 1: Very poor quality mattresses on all beds need to be upgraded . 2: Seating in longe very uncomfortable and not enough for a four adult occupancy. 3 : Some kitchen equipment showing wear and in need of replacement . We had to manage with chipped mugs and went out and bought some white wine glasses - just little things like no serving spoons and salad servers plus only 2 full size dinner plates ! 4 : Twin room en-suite has a very small wash basin difficult to even clean teeth over !! There is room to fit a bigger one . 5: Low level of cottage and clean but upper level eg. lamp shades and curtain poles etc thick with dust .

    Although a good house in a good location, the parking lets it down (which I appreciate isn't something that can be rectified) along with the sofa and beds that are rather uncomfortable. It needs some tlc to make it a great house.
