Very clean, good conditionand a very frendly ownerFriends from Switzerland - 25th July 2017
The cottage was beautiful with coordinating furnishing and spotlessly clean and fresh. The owner, Mali, has thought of everything including providing fresh, delicious Welsh cakes. We will definitely book the cottage again soon. The Gower peninsula is beautiful and the beaches really clean. Mumbles is well worth a visitJan from Nottingham - 13th June 2015

“Wonderful quiet, peaceful location with many attractions close by!!”
This was a delightful cottage with every home comfort and more. The owner was amazing and could not do enough to make our stay any more pleasant and yet was so unobtrusive. Local attractions a plenty and not far from the wonderful Brecon Beacons. We were greeted with home-made Welsh cakes and a glorious cottage with comfortable beds and fresh linen and towels - a truly delightful place to stay - WE WILL BE BACK!!
