                                                              Sizeable and unusual accommodation in great location

                                                              4 of 5
                                                              We had a great week with the family including 2 toddlers in this nice property. It was pretty well equipped, clean and spacious and the novelty of our own bar area and plenty of seating made this an ideal choice. The Gower is a beautiful spot and the proximity of Three Cliffs Bay was one of the attractions. Ir proved bit more of a hike than we expected albeit a plants walk across fields and sand dunes but too far to "pop back" for replenishments and too far also to lug lots of beach stuff. Nevertheless there are plenty of alternatives not too far away by car. There is plenty of outside space too- sadly no garden or lawn but room enough for kids to run around, barbecues or generally lazing around. Of course the weather plays a big part and the property is roomy enough for a large group not to be under everyone's feet. the owner was helpful on the couple of occasions needed and very close at hand without being intrusive. Would recommend for a large family group or a number of friends. 5 en suite bedrooms is a major plus.

                                                              This was our first family holiday, my husband, my 6 month old son and I. We booked this amazing accomodation for a week to enjoy some quality time together. We were thrilled when we arrived to find how perfectly beautiful the place was and how welcome we instantly felt. Our son settled instantly in the very comfortable surroundings and so did we, with the help of a welcoming pimms. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the area and walking a lot of the Gower coast. This is certainly and area we would love to return to some day. All in all, a fabulous holiday making memories to keep forever!!! Thanks so much to Katherine and Michael for helping to make it so special.
