The Old Mill Cottage is a converted corn mill finished to a high standard. Sitting approx 1.2miles along a farm track this cottage really is in the middle of the countryside. The only engine your likely to here is the farmers tractor, all other noise belongs to birds singing or farm animals calling. The farm has cattle, sheep, geese and chickens so plenty to see and do. The Old Mill has two gardens one of which is private which includes BBQ area, also ample parking for numerous cars. Little Walterstone farm sits in the middle of Cefn Bryn (common land) so is perfect for those who enjoy walking, mounting biking, bird watching, horse riding (Cefn Bryn is on the bridle path, you can bring your horse, no stables available however we can offer grazing in a private field backing onto the Cottage) or just exploring the beauty of the Gower Peninsula. Little Walterstone Farm is only 1.5miles from the nearest beach, 2miles from a choice of two local pubs and 2miles from the local shop.

About JAMES TREGONING
Here at Little Walterstone Farm we have 98 acres concentrating on sheep and cattle. We converted The Old Corn Mill into this holiday cottage in 2012 to share the beauty of the countyside. The owner of the farm is Newton Woollacott aged 68 and still working hard! However with the trials and tribulations that come with running a working farm he has to have help. Which is where i come in, my name is James Tregoning i'm 33 and married to Jade and we have a two young sons. I've been on the farm since i was 6 and worked the farm for well over 18 years. In that time together Newton and I have promoted the farm no end! 3 large new barns, stone walls that could rival Hadrian and of course we built the Old Mill cottage. Newton has asked me to manage the cottage on his behalf.
Beautiful, peaceful and relaxing
We had a wonderful stay on this farm. Perfect for the whole family and Jade and James couldn't have been kinder. Our little boys loved seeing the chickens, cows and sheep. Perfect cottage in a wonderful part of the world. Thank you!
the property was beautiful but above all so tranquil to wake up in, a stress free week, amazing!
Watching the chickens pass our window a pleasure and finding they all have a character was humorous. The desolate road to the mill reminded us we were heading for a peaceful retreat each time we drove up it to the mill. We booked the mill for a stress free getaway and it didn't disappoint.
Thankyou James and Jade
Friendly. peaceful, relaxing, clean and well equiped
We all had such a lovely time here. It is the perfect place to wind down. Lovely walks from the front door and lots of lovely beaches to explore. There were ponies, cows and sheep roaming free on the common, and cows and chickens on the farm. You could hear the owl in the barn along with the sound of the breeze in the trees. Perfect.
The cottage was so comfortable, clean, cosy and had everything you could possibly need. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly and offer vegetables and eggs. I wish we had booked to stay longer.
Pretty cottage on the stunning Gower Penisula
Pretty cosy cottage which is well equipped, clean and in keeping with its setting. James and family were great hosts, warm friendly and welcoming - nothing was too much trouble. We were within walking distance of a beautiful beach and were surrounded by amazing views. Great location for us and our dog. We would wholeheartedly recommend The Old Mill and would definitely return to the Gower.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write us a review, it was an absolute pleasure to have you stay with us on the farm.
James and Jade
THE PROPERTY LOOKED FINE,IT WAS UNACCESSABLE
WE DIDNT STAY AT THE PROPERTY,NO ONE MENTIONED IT WAS SO FAR UP A BARELY DRIVABLE ROAD,THE DAMAGE TO OUR CAR WASNT WORTH IT,I FEEL SOMEONE SHOULD TAKE THE TIME TO POINT OUT THAT YOU NEED A 4X4 TO ACCESS THE PROPERTY.
Thank you for your review.
With over 160 families having stayed with us over six years and a star rating of 4.4 I am extremely surprised by your comments.
The Old Mill Cottage is a converted corn mill finished to a high standard. Sitting approximately 1.2miles along a FARM TRACK this cottage really is in the middle of the COUNTRYSIDE. The only engine you’re likely to hear is the farmer’s tractor, all other noise belongs to birds singing or farm animals calling.
I feel sad that you didn’t get to experience the beauty of this magical place and wonder if town accommodation would be more suitable for you.
Incidentally, I drive a Vauxhall Zafira, up and down the lane 6 times a day. So long as you take your time, there is NO problem.
Great welcome in great location
Would defo stay again james and family are very welcoming and helpfull also the fresh eggs he gave us every day were great thank james fir a great weekend
Special interest holidays:
For those people who are looking for a holiday with bird watching, walking, horse riding, cycling, surfing, painting and fishing then The Old Mill on Little Walterstone Cottage is the perfect place for you. Everything listed can be obtained right on the cottage doorstep ( fishing and surfing would require a 25 minute walk or 10 minute drive ).
The Gower Peninsula has numerous amounts of award winning beaches dotted around, since it was awarded the first area of outstanding natural beauty in Britain it has become a Mecca for those who love sand, sea and surf. The nearest beach to The Old Mill is 1.5mile walk to Nicholston beach or 2mile walk to 3 cliffs bay ( recently picked Britains favourite view by Cathrine Jenkins ). If you drive you have the option to go to any of Gowers beaches as Penmaen is very central.
We recommend you hire a car or bring your own as we are 1.2 miles from the road. Swansea has an airport but our nearest commercial airport is in Cardiff approx 55 miles away
The coast is a 1.5 mile walk over countryside and the nearest pubs are a 2.5mile walk in either direction or 15 minute drive. Our nearest amenities shop is also about a 15 minute drive.
We advise doing your food shop before you arrive as the nearest supermarket is a 30 minute drive, however remember not to buy eggs as your on a working farm! Plus play your cards right and the very generous farmer may make his vegetables available from his extensive vegetable plot. The nearest bank is again a 30 minute drive and there are plenty of restaurants in and about the Gower.
