Charming Beachside Cottage, near Gower (646HH)

Every now and then we come across a property that is as unique as it is inviting, where visitors can savour in seclusion with a stunning beach pretty much all to themselves.

The Property is over 350 years old and is the ultimate Gower coastal hideaway. A pretty white washed stone cottage with rustic and vintage styling, thanks to an interconnecting door that joins the main house to its annex, this beach front classic can sleep 14.

If your numbers are smaller, there's the option to rent the main house on its own as it sleeps 8/10, or separately again, the cosy annex is the perfect retreat for between 2 and 4 people.

For remoteness and that sense of really being away from it all, an added quirk is that your only way in or out is in a Land Rover pre-arranged with the owners. You can walk of course if you need a fix of civilisation either through the woods inland towards the village of Bishopston or along the cliff top coastal path that leads you to coffee shops, stores, pubs and less remote beaches.

As well as the quiet and chance to enjoy fires on the beach and midnight swims under the stars, guests can enjoy a sense of a being immersed in a little part of Gower history.

The original part of the house dates back to 1700 when records began but is thought to be considerably older. First a quarryman's house, it later became a smuggler's inn. Indeed neighbouring Brandy Cove is named after the illicit contraband regularly smuggled through. The building only became a private dwelling in the 1970s when through sympathetic restoration, retaining features such as beams and inglenook fireplaces, it has kept its character yet has all the modern day fixtures, fittings and features needed for a comfortable holiday retreat.

THERE IS NO VEHICULAR ACCESS TO THE PROPERTY OTHER THAN VIA THE OWNER'S 4X4 LANDROVER. In very extreme cases, to add to the adventure of reaching your destination sometimes the small river floods and then access is by foot only via the beach or a woodland path (these routes add a 10 minute journey to the arrival). N.B. The owners will collect you from a meeting point on arrival and transport you to your destination.


The Property (ref. 646)
A three bedroom family house sleeping 8/10 people in rustic, open plan accommodation with the luxury of underfloor heating, a roll top bath, inglenook fireplace and sea views that is simply perfect for a family or group holiday or short break (off peak times only) and where dogs are welcome too.

The Property Annex (ref. 652)

A delightful, one bedroom coastal bolthole offering open plan accommodation set over two floors for 2 up to 4 people (sofa bed on ground floor). A modern addition to the cottage built on in the 1970's offers a large space with a stunning inglenook fireplace make for a comfy retreat and open balcony upstairs with sea outlook. Available for short breaks during off peak times, visitors can enjoy sea views, solitude and can bring the dog too.

LocationSwansea

Set on the waterfront, this city is a great base to explore the South West of Wales and take in the culture of numerous museums and the many parks and gardens to choose from. There are a range of fun activities to choose from such as wind surfing and kite surfing, local beaches along the Gower Peninsula include Caswell Bay, Llangennith Beach and Oxwich Bay. The Clyne botanical gardens are perfect for a peaceful walk, Plantasia is also worth a visit, this rainforest in the heart of the city is home to a huge variety of tropical plants, parrots, monkeys and reptiles.

The Swansea Museum is the oldest in Wales, its exhibitions focus on the industrial and maritime history of the city. Also in the Maritime Quarter is the National Waterfront Museum. There is free admission to the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, a fun and interesting day out for all ages with many of the items collected by Sir Henry Wellcome. The Glynn Vivian Art Gallery has a diverse collection of photography and art from local artists.

Swansea has a large leisure complex with an indoor waterpark, surf machine, gym plus many more sport and play activities. Local public gardens and parks include Singleton Park, Cwmdonkin, Brynmill and Penllergare Valley Woods. Slightly further afield is the Carmel Nature Reserve. Mumbles is a great day trip, a pretty seaside town with Victorian pier and lighthouse. Oystermouth Castle is open seasonally and visitors can walk along the ancient ramparts which have amazing sea views across Swansea Bay.

South Wales

Although smaller in size than other regions of Wales, this area still has a great selection of historical sites to visit and rolling countryside with a dramatic coastline. Perhaps best known for the impressive Brecon Beacons, this mountain range is very popular for those seeking an activity holiday with something to suit all, from mountain biking and caving to horse riding and star gazing events. The Vale of Glamorgan is worth a visit, with a 9 mile heritage coastal path not to mention the famous Barry Island with its vibrant amusement park which is all only a few miles from Cardiff.

Not just an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Wye Valley and the Vale of Usk combined can also boast having the most castles per square mile in Britain. In recognition of its revolutionary importance the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape is now a World Heritage Site and has a fascinating collection of ironworks, mines and a national museum.

Cardiff is perfect for a day of shopping and sight-seeing. The varied choice of entertainment ranges from live music venues, guided tours and art events. For a peaceful walk or nature spotting trip then the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal is a beautiful and isolated place to unwind.
