Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Swallow’s Nest is a perfect base for exploring The Gower, as no beach is more than 10 minutes drive away. This is the most dog-friendly cottage we have ever stayed in and the owners (David & Phillipa) were the kindest & most thoughtful hosts. Excellent meals out at The Britannia Inn and The Greyhound Inn; best beaches in the world to walk on; best stocked cottage every rented, with the most generous of welcome packs. Will definitely be going back. Oct 2012.
  2. The owner’s whose house is next door were lovely, very welcoming, kind and helpful and giving information where needed but at the same time they were very aware of giving us ’space’. The cottage was lovely. Our dogs were very happy too. June 2012.
  3. The property is an excellent barn conversion, spotlessly clean, very comfortable and welcoming. The owners are lovely people who look after their guests needs without being intrusive. A generous welcome pack is provided and lots of extras. One of the best! May 2012.
  4. Our fourth visit to Swallows Nest, a lovely quiet place in a well equipped cottage, friendly helpful owners,lots of favourite places to visit. Good food available at the Greyhound (5 mins) or Brittania(10 mins). Swansea and the Mumbles just 15 miles. A treat at Verdi’s restaurant at the Mumbles, great Italian food. The Maritime museum is first class, free entry, great for us as we were not so lucky with the weather this year and made two visits and only touched a part of it, a must go next year. Wettest waek of the year and we still had a great time. April 2012.
  5. A well kept, beautiful little cottage, very relaxing place with helpful hosts who were a mine of local information. Our dog enjoyed the walks straight from the door. The welcome pack was very generous and the wine could be the reason the cottage felt so relaxing. April 2012.
  6. Very cosy and well equipped, with extremely welcoming and helpful hosts. Good local walking, and plenty to see within less than an hour’s drive. April 2012.
  7. Excellent in every way from the welcome pack to the personal attention of the owners Phillipa and David. Perfect centre for exploring and walking in the Gower peninsular. March 2012.
  8. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners, expecially our dog. Welcome pack was excellent and unexpected. One of the best holiday homes we have stayed in. Excellent location for visiting surrounding beaches. Well deserves the gold award. March 2012.
  9. Ideally placed for visiting all of the Gower coastline & it’s super beaches. The peninsula is also criss-crossed with miles of well signposted walks. Excellent pub ( good food) less than 2 miles away, The King Arthur and two good Fish and Chip shops with about 4 miles. Can’t speak too highly of the very hospitable and welcoming hosts. Oct 2011.
  10. Beautiful accommodation, spotlessly clean with many extras that the owners had thoughtfully provided. Lovely location, very quiet but superb access to all Gower attractions, especially the beaches which our two children (7 and 9 years) thoroughly enjoyed. Owners were very helpful without being intrusive. Best cottage we have been to (we’ve had many cottage holidays). Highly recommend it. Aug 2011.
  11. A beautifully clean and comfortable cottage set in a rural area. There are country walks with stunning views across the estuary from the cottage. A generous welcome pack awaits from the friendly and informative owners. A place to return to! Sept 2011.
  12. This was our second visit, it was great and we shall be back again soon that says it all. Sept 2011.
  13. Fantastic holiday in a lovely property. Welcome gifts were superb and owners very helpful. Stunning beaches just a short drive from property. Would return and recommend without hesitation. Aug 2011.
  14. The property was excellent and Mr & Mrs Wibberly could not have been more helpful and made us very welcome. July 2011.
  15. A wonderful cottage with friendly owners. Definitely a place to get away from everything! The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and very tasty. We had such a fantastic time that we’ve booked again (on the night we returned home) for next year. July 2011.
  16. We stayed in this cottage for the second time this year and, like many others, are regular fans! Everything is just first class, instigated by the wonderful owners, for whom nothing is too much trouble, and who are very welcoming in every way. There are endless beaches to explore , walks etc - all the information you cold possibly need is to hand at the property, or gleaned from the owner’s knowledge. First class. June 2011.
  17. A surprise of locally sourced foods awaited us making us feel welcome. The owners were welcoming but did’nt intrude. The area was quiet but close to local landmarks. I would happily go again. May 2011.
  18. Just a lovely, relaxing place to be - mainly down to David and Phillipa who couldn’t be more helpful and after going back 5 years on the trot, are more like friends now. Beautiful scenery, amazing walks and great places to eat. Just a shame you can’t book the weather you’d like aswell, but that’s Wales! May 2011.
  19. Very friendly owners. Loved the walsh cakes, fresh bread etc. Lovely views of the owners fields, our dog loved it! April 2011.
  20. Ideal spot for walking with dogs.Spectacular scenery. Cottage clean, comfortable and well equipped. Owners go out of their way to be helpful. Have already booked again for next year! March 2011.
