Reviews

Very quiet location with great views. Very friendly hosts

Mr B,

Lovely spacious property. Well equipped with stunning views. Very remote down narrow country lanes but worth it for the stunning location and absolute peace and quiet. Well situated to explore the Gower. Owners are handy if you need anything but not intrusive. They put up a temporary but sturdy fence to make the garden secure for our dog, be aware there are very tame sheep, horses, cats and the owners dogs surrounding the property. This was not a bother for us at all but might be if your dog is reactive. All in all a wonderful week away in this stunning barn.

Mrs C,

This is a very spacious detached property. Lovely views. There were only 2 of us and a dog but it would suit 6 people comfortably. It is isolated and you have to drive everywhere but this is offset by the peace and quiet. Our dog made friends with the many tame sheep on the farm. There are no comfortable outside chairs and no parasol for shade so worth bringing your own. Some teething problems with the oil boiler which were sorted by the helful owner. We enjoyed our week there.

Mr S,

With three bedrooms of similar size and facilities, the old barn was a perfect fit for our family. Situated at the end of a long track provided a lovely quiet and peaceful location, with far reaching views. Well positioned to reach all the delights and beaches of the Gower my family and 2 small dogs will retain long and happy memories of our stay.

Mr E,
