“A most enjoyable stay in this well-equipped cottage.
The ‘welcome packs’ for us and our dog were a thoughtful gesture and much appreciated.
The cottage is delightful, and its location meant we were able to take full advantage of the spectacular scenery; good weather throughout the stay. ”

“Thank you John and Angela for the warm welcome to your delightful cottage. The “Welcome Hamper” was
very much appreciated – thank you!
Despite the weather, at times inclement, we have had an enjoyable week taking in Coastal Walks and exploring the various bays and beaches.
As for venues for an evening meal we found JOHNNIES in Chapel St for Fish + Chips and THE WOODMAN. Our favourite, with excellent food and good prices was THE MERMAID.

“What an amazing week we have had in this beautiful cottage! Our stay has been blessed by a lot of sunshine (most of the time!)
– The surprise hamper was most appreciative and included all the treats we wanted after our long drive. John was most eager to show us how to work everything in the house, ensuring our stay was as comfortable as possible.
– Mumbles is an ideal place and has plenty to offer, especially the beautiful beaches, Caswell and Langland where we spent a lot of our time; yet, you are close enough to Swansea if you wish to explore the city life.
Our only issue… Joe’s ice-cream won’t survive the trip home!
Thank you very much, it really was a “home from home””

I also went “coasteering” with Tony @ Welsh adventures lovely guy and it was an absolutely awesome time, try it you’ll like it.
