Cottage in Penmaen, Gower Peninsula, Wales - Peaceful Location In The Heart Of A Working Farm, Boasting Panoramic Views Of The Countryside
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.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
The Old Mill Cottage on Walterstone Farm is really lovely. It is charming and was clean and well equipped.
I don't think you could find more welcoming hosts, Jade and James are such lovely, friendly people who made us feel truly welcome and valued as visitors to their farm and property.
The location is really peaceful and quiet, the little posse of hens with their cockerels going past the cottage at regular intervals was very entertaining!
The mile and a half track to the farm is quite rough, this is clearly stated in the holiday details but should be borne in mind when booking. A four wheel drive vehicle would sail over it, if your vehicle is low to the ground you would have to be careful.
Jade and James kept us supplied with fresh eggs and home made welsh cakes which were lovely and much enjoyed and appreciated.
We will definitely return in the future. a lovely find for a stay in a beautiful area of the Gower so close to lovely beaches and with many options for walks either with your dogs or just on your own to enjoy the amazing scenery.
Get away from it all!
Lovely property, great for walking, within reach of some beautiful beaches would definite;y recommend it
Perfect for exploring Gower!
We loved our stay here! The cottage has everything you could possibly need and is ideal for families. Well located, with walking routes, beaches, great pubs and rainy day activities all nearby. James and Jade are lovely hosts, we had fresh farm eggs for breakfast every morning and home made welsh cakes were a lovely surprise! We would highly recommend and we will be back!
Bank holiday weekend
Lovely cottage and great location. The property has everything you and is very clean and modern throughout. It was just ideal for a family weekend away (4 adults 2 children). James and Jade are fantastic hosts, really friendly with great knowledge of the area, they also gave us fresh eggs on our arrival and some delicious home made welsh cakes, what a treat! Would definitely stay again!
Fabulous mini break
Would not hesitate to recommend this property. A lovely part of the world. Very very warm welcome from James and his family
Stunning location, made to feel extremely welcome, lovely, very well equipped property - perfect!
James and Jade couldn't have been more welcoming from the moment we arrived. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on their lovely farm. They left us eggs and homemade welsh cakes. The property is nestled amongst farmland and is only a very pleasant mile and a half walk up and over the ridge, through woodland to stunning beaches. We also took a trip to the wonderful Wormshead - definitely worth a little drive out - for such stunning walks and scenery.
Would love to go back one day...
Thanks so much for your lovely review, it was a pleasure having you and your family here and we hope to see you again one day
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.
