"In the peace of Gower’s gentle farmland – with beaches and bays close at hand . . ."

The Gower Peninsula with its rolling countryside and miles of unspoilt coastline is the setting for these very comfortable holiday cottages which themselves are set on 30 acres of land. The cottages have been furnished and equipped to a very high standard, and are double glazed throughout. Visitors enjoy shared use of a games room with table tennis and a pool table, and may relax in the garden area; bicycles are available for hire in Swansea and facilities for water sports and fishing are close at hand. There is easy access to many beautiful sandy beaches and coves within 10 miles or so, and opportunities nearby for scenic moorland and coastal walks in this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Gowerton, with its shops and pub, and local trains to west and mid Wales, is only half a mile away.
A nearby cycle track leads to the Mumbles, which is famous for its lighthouse and lifeboat station and also boasts seaside attractions, a pleasant promenade and lots of sailing dinghies and small boats. At Penclawdd (3 miles), cockle fishermen go out on to the mudflats at low tide with horse-drawn carts to rake out the cockle harvest. Many of the Gower’s sandy beaches are backed by dunes, and some offer excellent wind-surfing; there are sandy coves with rock pools and the coastal path leads to wonderful cliff-top views. Inland, the sheep and sturdy Gower ponies roam moorlands which offer further opportunities for walks, picnics, riding and bird-watching.
A number of National Nature Reserves are home to rare birds and plants. The glistening Loughor Estuary provides a haven for waders and geese among the rice-grass, sea lavender and marsh mallow of Llanrhidian Marsh, all overlooked by the summit of Cilifor Top, which is crowned with an extensive Iron Age fort; a nearby lane passes the ruin of Weobley Castle, once a fortified manor house; on the Gower, visitors can explore history and natural history side by side at every turn, almost everywhere with the sound of the sea in the background.
Hang-gliders take off from Rhossili Down, now in the care of the National Trust, and swoop over the bay, whose three-mile sweep of golden sand is one of the most spectacular on the Welsh coast and often offers ideal conditions for surfing. The many facilities of Swansea include restaurants, shops, theatres, leisure centre, concert halls, museums, golf courses, extensive parks and gardens, a marina and the Welsh National Swimming Pool and sandy beaches with bathing (6 miles). A 30-minute drive leads to the National Botanical Gardens in Carmarthenshire, whilst an 18-hole golf course and a wildlife and wetlands sanctuary are both only ten minutes away by car.
Within an hours’ drive and well worth a visit is the lively capital city of Cardiff with its National Museum of Wales at St Fagans, as well as Cardiff Bay and the new tidal barrage. Nowadays, the Gower is more easily accessible by road, and the warming effect of the Gulf Stream means that the weather for visitors to the cosy cottages of Cefn Gorwydd can be exceptionally pleasant at any time of year. Shops ½ mile.

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.

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.

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.
