Property Description

Commanding magnificent uninterrupted views over Port-Eynon Bay, these delightful, seaside holiday properties are situated on the Gower Peninsula, the UK’s first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Fennel Cottage (ref OMK) and Malt Cottage (ref OML) each feature a first floor living room with French doors leading to a balcony, for maximum enjoyment of the sea views. Carreglwyd Farmhouse (ref OQ1) is a detached property that is comfortably furnished and offers a spacious retreat for families and large groups alike to enjoy this magnificent part of the world. For those who can bear to tear themselves away from the comfort of Croft Acre, there is an array of attractions to enjoy.
The Swansea coastline shelters many beautiful bays, glorious sandy beaches secluded coves and breathtaking cliff-top coastal walks and abundant wildlife. The headland, owned by the National Trust, has a most spectacular coastal path which veers along crags above thundering waves for 5 miles. The tip of the headland displays a natural cave, which delves into the hillside, and further along to the west, the man-made cave Culver Hole is more easily explored - possibly having served as a stronghold for the former Port Eynon Castle, which existed in days bygone. Subsequent uses have included a smugglers’ retreat, as well as an armoury and dovecote. For walkers, the area is a paradise, with the spectacular coastal path to Rhossili (5 miles) offering wonderful views. A point to visit along the way is Paviland Cave, where the skeleton of a Stone Age hunter was discovered - believed to be some 19,000 years old. The pretty village of Rhossili gives access to an isolated string of rocks, known as Worms Head, which can be reached on foot at low tide, and for those keen on surfing, boogie boards and surf boards can be hired from the village. Surfing tuition (half day and full day courses) is also available a mile or so from Rhossili at the Welsh Surfing Federation’s Surf School. Not only for watersports enthusiasts, the region is also very popular with cyclists.
Swansea, lying in the opposite direction, offers a vibrant pace of life with its many bars, restaurants and shops. Accessible within half an hour’s drive, the city’s many attractions include Plantasia - a great pyramidal glasshouse with wondrous plants and a mini-zoo of monkeys, butterflies, an aquarium and even a python. Swansea itself offers a vibrant pace of life, with its many bars, restaurants and shops. The Liberty Stadium is also home to the ’Swans’, the premier league Swansea City Football Club. The LC leisure centre has indoor climbing, a network of pools, rides and water slides, a boardrider and spa days. The Dylan Thomas Centre, which was opened on St Davids Day in 1995 as part of Swansea’s UK City of Literature celebrations and features two galleries, restaurant, book shops and craft shops, is also worth a visit.
Cardiff, the bustling capital of Wales, can be reached in an hour and has plenty to keep the whole family entertained. An extraordinary castle can be visited, as can the great Millennium Stadium - home of Welsh rugby and the nation’s football team. A vast array of museums and galleries can be enjoyed in the city, from the hands-on Fantasmic (great for children), the Centre for Visual Arts and Ffotogallery, to the more traditional National Museum and Gallery, and the regimental museums housed in the castle. The National Botanical Gardens of Wales are also worth a visit, where a Mediterannean climate is maintained in a vast glasshouse, and wonderful plants from all over the world can be enjoyed. There are also extensive shopping centres and the Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay. Other attractions to visit include the leisure centre and National Waterfront Museum in Swansea and Gower Heritage Centre at Parkmill. Shop 2 miles.

  9. Great accommodation for up to 8 people, which made it a relaxing holiday as everybody was able to chill out!

  11. Incredible views! Nov 2007.
  12. Super location, so near the beach, meant that our grandchildren could be turned out to go and play on their own. Binoculars were useful to keep track of them from the balcony! They were 2 boys of 13 and 14 and two little girls of 7 and 8, and they all loved it. The grown-ups did too! Aug 2007.
  13. Port Eynon was a beautiful place to visit for my first holiday in Wales, the cottage had excellent views across the bay. I would definitely return. Sept 2008.
