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. Two double bedrooms, each with 6ft bed, wooden floor and one with en-suite shower room with double shower cubicle, toilet and tiled floor. Two twin bedrooms. Bathroom with shower attachment and toilet.

    A warm welcome by the host who showed us around the beautiful peaceful setting. Very well equipped kitchen. Plenty of fuel provided for the log burner (at no extra cost!) Hot tub was a real treat. Everything we needed to make a weekend with friends really special. Thank you.

    Fantastic long weekend with family of all ages. Great hosts and a beautiful part of the world. Everything you could want for everybody, but particular favourites were the hot tub, pool table and peaceful summer house by the water. Loved it! Thank you so much!

    Absolutely amazing property in a beautiful location. Stayed twice now and will definately book again. The owners are so lovely and welcoming. We love the hot tub and games room, used both every day, playing over 100 games of pool :) 10/10 on everything, highly recommended

    This property is really lovely and well kitted out in the house and kitchen, the grounds are expansive and a peaceful area to enjoy a relaxing break away. On initial viewing, this is a perfect holiday cottage. However, as the week went on, there were a number of disappointments faced throughout the property. For the fee that was paid for property, we expected to see all items advertised as being part of the property to be of perfect quality and in a usable state. However, for example, the hot tub had a broken light in the bottom that we were not warned about (the owner said he knew about it after we reported it) resulting in a cut foot, the pool table in the games room was completely unusable, with one of the cushions broken off and the cues having no tips, and generally around the outside of the property everything was a bit 'tumble-down'. A storm the previous week meant that the WiFi was not working at the property when we arrived, and was not fixed until half way through our stay - although we understand these things happen, we felt we should have received an email advising us of this matter before we arrived. All in all, we did have a lovely holiday here, but the property clearly needs some further maintenance and the communication with residents on matters that are not up to scratch should be improved.

    Had a great time at the Willows. The cottage was spacious and just what we needed for 7 adults and 2 dogs. We were blessed with glorious weather and Oxwich bay a 15 minute drive away provided us with a great place to go, easily accessible. With the help of an OS map we found plenty of lovely walks from the cottage. The owners were lovely and friendly and very helpful, giving us ideas for places to go and pubs to eat at. They also told us that the supermarkets in Swansea all deliver to the cottage which would be a great idea to order your shopping to arrive when you get there. There was a lovely hamper waiting for us on arrival. All in all a fab place to stay, would definitely go back to explore more of the lovely Gower.
