The chapel was fantastic and the surrounding countryside was divine. Sarah was so helpful throughout the booking process making everything so much easier. Thanks again.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The garden is lovely and very private. Close to the shops and the sea promenade (walking distance), the Little Sea Sparkle is the perfect home for couples. It is also a fantastic home base for exploring the Gower peninsula (for the history lovers) and the lovely pubs (for the others) within short distances by car.. Don't waste any time, book it! Katherine is an amazing host. I highly recommend this wonderful gem. I think we will be back !
