To give our cleaners enough time to complete the additional cleaning and sanitising that is currently needed to keep our guests safe, check-in and check-out times at the majority of our properties have been temporarily revised. The revised times for this property are reflected above.
The ultimate romantic getaway, one of only 2 properties in Pwll Du Bay (pronounced Puth Dee), Ship Cottage offers simple accommodation and the chance to escape the hustle and stress of everyday life and wake up in your very own (well almost!) secluded bay to the sound of the sea.
Pwll Du is situated in the heart of The Gower Peninsula, Britain's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). This beautiful, picturesque beach has history rich in smuggling and quarrying and is a haven to walkers, artists and nature lovers and considered by many as Gower's best kept secret. Just a stone's throw from the beach (literally you can throw a stone from your balcony to the beach) previously a pub built to keep the quarry workers from getting too thirsty.
THERE IS NO VEHICULAR ACCESS TO THE PROPERTY OTHER THAN VIA THE OWNER'S 4X4 LANDROVER. In very extreme cases, to add to the adventure of reaching your destination sometimes the small river floods and then access is by foot only via the beach or a woodland path (these routes add a 10 minute journey to the arrival). N.B. Guests leave their car in a residnetial area 1.1 miles from the property. The owners will collect you from the meeting point on arrival and transport you to your destination.
Guests are welcome to bring their own 4wd if they are confident to drive of road and be liable for their own car. The track is rough and steep and cars may get scratched-the owner is happy to talk you through the access route.
Open Plan Living Area: An inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. 4-seat sofa, chair, TV and DVD player, a dining table with 4 chairs and other occasional furniture and French windows.
Kitchen: Newly-renovated kitchen area with fridge with icebox, microwave and cooker.
A spiral staircase leads to the first floor with sea views from the bedroom window and patio doors.
Bedroom: Double bed and patio doors leading onto the balcony.
Shower Room: 'Jack and Jill' en suite shower room with shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin which can also be accessed from the hall as well as the bedroom.
