The Old Coastguard Cottage is a homely, well situated 3-bedroom, pet friendly cottage sleeping 4 people comfortably. With beautifully landscaped, spacious gardens and off road parking, this cottage provides the perfect base from which to explore all that Mumbles and the surrounding area has to offer.

The cottage is steeped in history, built around 1870 and built for the use of the coastguard. Numbers 12 and 13 Upper Church Park were for the officers, whilst number 14 was for the captain.

Excellent cottage in great location and equipped to a much higher standard than we expected or have previously experienced. In addition the off road parking makes the Old Coastguard Cottage so much better than other properties close to the centre of Mumbles. Enjoyed our stay so much we will probably be back here next year.

Mr K,

A lovely well equipped property in a fantastic central location.

Mr T,

Great little cottage with parking and good sized kitchen and living area. It's a short walk to the Mumbles seafront with all the pubs, restaurants, ice cream parlours, piers and sea. Booking process with Home from Home was easy. We would certainly visit mumbles and this property again.

Mr T,

We absolutely loved our stay here in the May half term - perfect location, really local to everywhere, excellent restaurants, bars and the seafront. We're coming back next year!

Mrs T,

We have the most glorious week staying at the old coast guards cottage. This is our second trip to the cottage. The location couldn’t be beaten, plus the off road parking is brilliant. Love the outdoor garden area with plenty of space for the kids to play. House was spotless and the kitchen is beautifully designed. Can’t wait to come back again!

Dr W,
