Wonderful flat - home from home

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here - the flat was fantastic and beyond our expectations, decorated to a very high standard and very spacious. We had a warm Welsh welcome from Katherine - including Welsh cakes when we arrived - and she was on hand via phone for any questions we had. The flat is in a great location - just minutes from the cafes and restaurants along the sea road of Mumbles but very quiet nevertheless. Although the weather in early February was too cold to enjoy the small courtyard outside the front door, it would be a real suntrap in the summer. We will definitely be back.
