Perfect Party House!

  • 5 of 5

We were 20 students celebrating finishing Jan exams and wanting to get away for a long weekend and our entire stay was faultless! It really is such a fab set up and the perfect party house!

The kitchen was very well equipped and made catering for 20 of us very easy, plus having a table big enough to seat everyone is a rare thing.

All of the bedrooms are really spacious and plenty of bathrooms with great showers. Plus the sauna was a big hit!

Location wise it's great, took just over an hour to get here from Cardiff which is ideal and it is very close to all the Gower's wonderful beaches.

Amanda (the owner) was so lovely and very accommodating of us partying till the early hours!

Everyone has raved about the house and are all very keen to come back next year! Cannot recommend this place highly enough!!

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are 3 generations of one family and all had a brilliant time There is plenty of space, both inside and out, and, as we had brought kayaks with us, the lake provided great entertainment. The farm is really conveniently located for all the Gower beaches, and the shops in Killay are very handy. The butcher is particularly good.

Amanda dealt with all our enquiries promptly and efficiently and could not have been more helpful.

We are just sorting out dates for next summer. Can't wait!

Great PartyHouse

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the farm with family and friends and it was a great experience.

The facilities at the house are excellent. We had a group of fifteen staying and eight more invited to a bbq.

Everyone had loads of space and Amanda and Emily were available with help and advice about the area taxis etc.

We had a big log fire a huge table to entertain at and lots of happy memories.

We were there for a wedding in oxwich bay and it was so nice to have time either side of the big day. The only negative comment was that we had to come home

Enchanting beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house for our wedding and erected a gorgeous double tipi tent for the revelries close to the house which created a fantastic unusual stylish venue. Amanda and her staff helped us organise the whole day and nothing was too much trouble and the atmosphere perfect. The house itself has a wonderful rustic charm with large well appointed bedrooms, some en suite, a large but cosy kitchen complete with aga, a cosy snug lounge plus a very large lounge complete with wood burner and beams. All our guests commented on how unusual and lovely the setting was with stables outside, large green expanses of lawn and of course the five mins walk down to the lake complete with rowing boat. This place is a gem, a well kept secret. Rain or shine it is a place to enjoy. You will not be disappointed!

The perfect venue for a family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

With 19 members of the family arriving from all over the world, we decided this year that we didn't want it to be any one person's responsibility to host Christmas and not did we all want to be crammed into a tiny space. In the process of our research we came across this enormous holiday cottage close to Swansea.

It looked wonderful on the website and the owner couldn't have been more accomodating so we were excited before we got there but little prepares you for quite how wonderful the cottage is.

Everything is thought through for ease of use. The property is HUGE! The children just couldn't believe the space and ran up and down the two staircases, playing hide and seek, rehearsed numerous shows for the adults and curled up all on one sofa to listed to grandad read them a goodnight story (and with 9 in total that was no mean feat!).

The grounds are stunning - perfect for a walk in the crisp Welsh air or a row in the boat on the lake. The horses were also a huge hit with the kids who helped to muck out the stables.

All of this was magical but it was the practical details that so impressed! The towels and linen provided. The good cooking utensils and knives (so rare in a rental), the catering oven which made catering for 19 for Christmas dinner a pleasure and not a chore, and the owner herself who went out of her way to be accomodating - even decorating the house with several Christmas trees and beautiful decorations.

It goes without saying that we have rebooked for 2015. I would recommend this house without a moment's hesitation.

Thank you Amanda for a magical week. It has been 14 years since we were all together as a family for Christmas and it couldn't have been more special.

Fabulous experience

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for my partners 60 birthday celebration and it was perfect, over the 4 days we had between 2 and 20 guests. Amanda was great and nothing was too much trouble, our highlights were rowing on the lake, roasting chestnuts on the fire and sitting around the fire pit watching a spectacular sunset.

It is situated just inside the Gower Peninsula with its many and famous beaches, The Gower itself is Britain's first ever A.N.O.B (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) being preserved over 50 years ago.

The farm is flanked on one side by beautiful common land which is grazed by wild horses. To the east, two of Swansea's best golf courses lead into Clyne Country Park which separates the area from Swansea itself, the city being a 15 minute drive from the property. The picturesque fishing village of Mumbles is a 10 minute drive away, making this property the most conveniently located accommodation of its type on the Peninsula.


The area is popular for outdoor pursuits; the following are available locally and can be organised for guests:

surfing, sailing.
