Property Description

Roughly equidistant between the north and south coasts of Gower, Three Crosses lies in Britain’s first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and forms the setting for these lovingly renovated, listed 18th-century properties which have won prestigious awards, namely the Lord Mayor Design Award, Wales regional winner for Built in Quality Design Award and the Gower Society Award. Originally comprising the buildings of the only farm in the village, they offer holiday accommodation of a very high standard, blending modern facilities with old world charm, have wi-fi internet access, and lie close to the 18th-century village pub serving good food.
Stretching from the pretty thriving village of Mumbles on the western edge of Swansea Bay, the south coast offers many opportunities for water sports, with beautiful sandy beaches further along the coast to the jewel of Rhossilli, and a 22-mile coastal path rewards walkers with some of the most stunning scenery in Wales. Taking on a more wild and rugged look, the north coast stretches from Llangennith along miles of deserted sandy beaches, and follows the Loughor Estuary. Beautiful walks abound in inland Gower, which boasts three Norman castles, and spectacular views of the north and south coasts can be admired from Cefyn Bryn – the spine of Gower. The Rhossilli Downs overlook the beach towards Worms Head – reached by a causeway at low tide. Home to 4 golf courses (one a few hundred yards from Crwys Farm), Gower also has surfing beaches at Llangennith and Langland, pony trekking and excellent fishing. For a change of tempo, the city of Swansea beckons. Home of Dylan Thomas, Swansea (with its cinema, bowling, indoor leisure facilities) has the largest indoor market in Wales and boasts an excellent maritime quarter containing the Welsh Maritime Museum, as well Plantasia. Travelling west towards the rugby town of Llanelli, the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust is a must for bird-watchers, and the Millennium Coastal Park makes an excellent cycling venue, leading to Pembrey Country Park, with woodland and 7-mile sandy beach. Further afield are Cardiff, Tenby, Dan yr Ogof Caves and the Brecon Beacons, with the Pembrokeshire coast also easily accessible. Shop 500 yards.

With green oak frame and oak floors, this detached barn has a mezzanine viewing gallery and easy walking access. Spacious beamed open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove, feature fireplace, open mezzanine gallery above, rugs on oak floor and well-equipped modern fitted kitchen area. Utility. Twin bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet. Master double bedroom with sleigh bed and en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi, shower cubicle and toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Amazing accommodation, every aspect of comfort and enjoyment taken into consideration, personal touches very much appreciated. Cannot fault any aspect, weather bit pants but you can’t have it all. Will definitely return. May 2012.
  2. What a wonderful property! So inviting and had everything we needed for our stay. It was very child friendly and even had extras like a baby monitor and children’s toys. The owners had left champagne, welsh cakes and chocolates for our arrival, such a personal and caring touch. There were plenty of towels for the bathrooms and hot tub and lots of useful things like washing up liquid in the kitchen and hand soaps in the bathrooms. I’d highly recommend this property. April 2012.
  3. Fabulous cottage. Jan 2012.
  4. This cottage is a must for those seeking luxury and space. It was a real home from home. Would highly recommend. We went for Christmas which was catered for superbly, would definitely return. The coastal paths are a must for walkers, however local walks in the wetter seasons are not so accessible due to large areas of marshland. Dec 2011.
  5. Excellent attention to detail, fresh flowers, chocolate, champagne and a hot tub - fantastic. This was out 3rd visit and we cant wait to go back. Sept 2011.
  6. Excellent accommodation everything you could ask for, like home from home and the flowers in the courtyard were a delight to see. August 2011.
  7. We had a wonderful family holiday at the Oak Barn. Downstairs was so spacious but head room in the upstairs bedrooms was limited. We were surprised with the space in the secure back garden, plenty for our toddler to run around in. July 2011.
  8. Central location, all parts of the peninsula easily accessible. Hot tub was good to use after a long walk. July 2011.
  9. Excellent accommodation. The fixtures and fittings were to a very high standard. Everything we needed was available, and the little welcoming touch of champagne, chocolates and Welsh cakes were just the icing on the cake. My friends with children were especially happy with all of the toys and games provided. April 2011.
  10. Approx 1 hrs drive from home, high standard throughout, easy access to the Gower. Feb 2011.
