Penmaen Manor is set in a perfect seaside location with fine golden sands as far as the eye can see. Dunes and downs surround the house for walkers and naturalists to explore. Overlooking Three Cliffs Bay and only a 15 minute walk down a rugged path over the dunes to Great Tor Bay - 30 minutes back! This is a safe walk with no roads to cross. Tor Bay is a superb sweep of very fine sand backed by high dunes curving 2 miles round to Oxwich.Garden feature - the garden pavilion is a cool or cosy outdoor Summerhouse where you can enjoy undercover garden pleasures such as pre-dinner drinks, light lunches, or just recovering after a long beach walk. The countryside nearby is ideal for walking and riding and a painters dream. There are good local pubs and Swansea is 15 minutes drive, which has marvelous shops, restaurants, marina and maritime museum, one of the largest markets in Wales, cinemas, theatres and golf courses. Penmaen Manor House dating back to the early 1600s has one of the finest views overlooking Three Cliffs Bay. Large landscaped gardens surround the house with plenty of space, even to have a game of cricket! For pure luxury you can spend time in the heated indoor swimming pool and sauna, which is entirely for your own use. A holiday here offers you a chance to return to the days of gracious family living. A 12 green POP AND PUT COURSE surrounds the edge of the large grounds, surrounding the house providing outdoor fun or in bad weather, a modern barn for indoor games, provide SKITTLE ALLEY and SOFT BALL TENNIS COURT.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful and had many antiquities of interest and was well equipped. It offered a wide range of activities for our large family gathering in and around the house but the location next to the fabulous coastline was a highlight. Our family of 14 and 3 dogs were comfortable and felt relaxed and at home immediately. Going to have to get saving as this was a one off extravagance for us that we would like to repeat! A fantastic location and house that catered for everyone at a very large family gathering.Mrs Jane Clement - 9th January 2018
A beautiful setting. We had a perfect wedding there. Mrs J Jones - 7th July 2017
It was the perfect location for our extended family to share a holiday. The pool made it for the children, it didn't matter that we had two days of rain as they were happy in the pool. The house had a lovely family feel to it, and facilities, games room, etc were great. We all loved Penmaen House, it was the perfect location, and very comfortable. The situation overlooking the beach, the garden, and the pool, made it perfect for our extended family, and we definitely will return!Mrs G Hill - 2nd July 2017
Fantastic property, felt like a home rather than just a holiday house. Very well equipped for a large family/familiesMrs Jennifer Williams - 6th June 2017
We had a great holiday and enjoyed the house.Mr Scott Birrell - 21st August 2016
Penmaen House is a magical place for a special family holiday. It was very comfortable and spacious, with so much for all ages to enjoy. Mastering that quirky kitchen tap and temperamental house telephone just added to the fun ! Can't wait for our next visit.Mr Hawkins - 10th August 2016
The Gower peninsula is truly beautiful and draws us back time and again. But it's this fantastic property that makes the stay so special for all.Mrs H Kibbler - 15th July 2016
