As with the downstairs, the bedrooms were very tastefully decorated and comfortable. The lounge had a Smart TV and a big selection of books, DVDs, boxed sets and games. There wasn't an awful lot at Penclawdd but it was an ideal place to visit the Gower's beautiful beaches and bays, especially Rhossili and Three Cliffs Bay. There were good places to eat very close by, especially the Cariad Café and the Railway Inn which were both on the doorstep. We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely like to return, minus the teenagers, to do more coastal walking.
