Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Bishopston - Redcliffe apartment

1bedroom apartment with full width window onto balcony for 2 people.

The Redcliffe apartment has a fantastic vantage point for views of Caswell Bay, voted one of the most beautiful beaches on Gower with its ancient cypress trees, rivers and lush cliffs. It also has the advantage of being close to Mumbles village with its cafes, bistros, harbour, pier and lighthouse -only an hour's walk along the cliff path with fabulous views all the way.

Access is via private gated drive and there is spacious parking right on Caswell Bay.

The balcony views are spectacular at any time of the day or year and it is often possible to see the Devon coast & enjoy gorgeous sunset skies.There is direct access to walks along the Gower coastal path and inland along beautiful valleys. Golfers and horse riders are visible on the headlands and there are numerous facilities for such recreation. Caswell has every type of watersport including surfing, kayaking, as well as caving, cycling, rock pooling and fishing. The fully manned lifeguards' hut provides safe bathing and surfing

Summer: The Redcliffe apartment in Caswell Bay is the perfect place to have a relaxing holiday. The views are spectacular- you can watch all the beach activities from the 3rd floor balcony and enjoy strolls on the beach, hikes along the coastal path and every manner of water sport. \the sunrise and sunset skies are magnificent. Enjoy a breakfast or evening meal on the balcony.

Please ask if you would like to se more photographs of our apartment and its surroundings.

Spring Autumn and Winter: The apartment affords a fabulous vantage point to watch the ever interesting tidal changes and to explore Gower. Many guests use the apartment as a base for exploring further afield or visiting the many interesting heritage sites in Swansea. The cosy flame glow fire will make you eel at home in the evenings and even in winter the mild microclimate of Caswell Bay will enable you t sit outside and enjoy the fresh air when the sunshine's.

Weather and natural environment: The South coast of Gower has an extremely mild climate. Caswell Bay in particular enjoys a sheltered location tucked behind its westerly headland- a unique microclimate. The sun shines on more than 260 days and if there is a storm or rain it soon clears up , usually bringing a fresh weather system from the South West. The vegetation in the sheltered bays and valleys of South Gower reflect this equable climate and the vegetation is lush and abundant. Perfumed wild flowers abound in spring, gorse and heather blanketing the cliff tops and headlands and the coves have verdant ivies and wild garlic blossom as well as elegant cypress trees.

The tidal range in Caswell Bay means that there is always an opportunity to explore the rock pools and caves that line the sandy beach at low tide. Starfish, anemones and crabs as well and limpet and mussel fields are exciting to discover amongst the caves and platforms. At low tide it is possible to take the beach route to nearby beaches like Langland.

Lovely apartment , wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

A very well equipped apartment everything you need is included with masses of storage space . Many lovely places to visit and walk , two easier walks which my husband now requires are the one from Rossili to Worms Head and from the heritage centre to Three Cliffs bay at low tide . It was always great to come back to the apartment and watch the sea in its many moods . Would love to come back and explore more of the Gower .

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stunning view over Caswell Bay, really enjoyed our stay. Apartment is lovely, very clean and modern. We where fortunate with the weather and enjoyed lots of nice walks. A must is the coastal path to Langland Bay and on to the Mumbles. Highly recommended accommodation.

A lovely apartment in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is comfortable, spotlessly clean, well equipped, and in a perfect location. It is exactly as described on this website, and the photographs are honest. The owner is very helpful and efficient, and responds to communications quickly. All in all, this was a very positive experience for us and we would thoroughly recommend this apartment.

Relaxing Times

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment with stunning views of the beach. Very quiet and relaxing break with easy access to the coastal path for walks. The apartment compact but was all we needed. We were lucky with the weather with sunshine for our most of stay which was lovely for and being able to sit and listen to the waves breaking onto the beach.

Easy walk to Langland Bay with various places to eat and drink and worth the drive to Rhosselli Bay for the beautiful views and beach.

Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

Wow - very cute little apartment. Compact, but has all you need - very clean and contemporary - alot of attention to detail. The view is outstanding - and the location perfect for many coastal walks etc. Lots of places in the area to visit, walk, dining out etc - if you can bear to leave the apartment ! We had only 3 days - could have stayed for 3 weeks.

Owner a delight to deal with - lots of information provided prior to visit. Highly recommended.

Lovely stay at Caswell Bay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Caswell Bay. The photographs on the internet looked lovely but we were still amazed on arrival at the beautiful view from the large picture windows of the apartment. It was lovely sitting and looking out over the bay. It is a beautiful spot, we had good weather and spent a lot of time on the beach, reading and playing boules. Very relaxing! We enjoyed exploring the Gower, this being our first visit. We found Rhossili to be very picturesque and I recognised the beautiful beach there from the Wales adverts. The hotel at the top of the cliff there is a great spot to eat and just enjoy the view. We also did the walk to Worm’s Head and enjoyed that. Mumbles is close by and handy for buying provisions. The apartment was spotless on arrival and was very nicely appointed. We will definitely return!

Owner's Response: We are delighted that our guests had a lovely time, enoying the view, walks to Worm's Head and Mumbles. Especially pleasing is that they were able to enjoy good weather on the beach playing boules- yet another sport to add to the many that can be observed there all the time. 'We would most pleased to welcome you back'.

West of Swansea is the famously beautiful Gower Peninsula- the first area in the whole of the UK to be declared an an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty-AONB. Caswell Bay is stunning. At the entrance to Gower lies the famous village of Mumbles.

Formerly the track of the famous Mumbles railway, there is now a summer train running the whole length of Mumbles and Swansea Bay that is a delightful way to get around.

Local attractions are many and various including natural geographical attractions like coastal and valley walks, the famous beaches of Three Cliffs and Rhossili and cultural attractions in Bishopston, Mumbles and Swansea all in close proximity. It is also easy to go further afield to the Black Mountains, Dan Yr Ogof caves and the Brecon Beacons.
