Set in 18 acres of beautiful rural countryside in the heart of Gower, this delightfully converted barn provides great family holiday accommodation. Adjoining the owners’ home, it is set in a relaxed and peaceful location. Full advantage is taken of the views from the decking area, which overlooks a fenced play area, fields, woodlands and a large wild flower meadow - as well as a pond with geese and ducks. There is also a hot tub for visitors’ use. This leads further on to a wooden summerhouse with a large deck overlooking a lake. This is truly a nature lover’s paradise, for young and old alike.

Fennel Cottage Ref: OMK


Commanding magnificent uninterrupted views over Port-Eynon Bay, this delightful, seaside holiday property is situated on the Gower Peninsula, the UK’s first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Fennel Cottage features a first floor living room with French doors leading to a balcony, for maximum enjoyment of the sea views. 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.

"...award winning properties set in an area of great beauty, captured between sandy beaches and wild, rugged coastline..."

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.

Views of Gower countryside can be seen from this detached farmhouse, which exhibits a wealth of character. Spacious living room with shuttered windows. Spacious sitting room with wood-burning stove in inglenook and shuttered windows. Large beamed farmhouse-style kitchen with range. Utility. Shower room and toilet. First floor: Master double bedroom with 5ft sleigh bed and en-suite shower room with toilet. Further double bedroom with 5ft bed. Twin bedroom. Bunk bedroom. Bathroom with roll-top bath, shower cubicle and toilet. Steep, narrow stairs (with child safety gate) to second floor: Playroom with low beamed sloping ceiling, TV, video, DVD, mini snooker table and children’s toys. Large enclosed garden with hot tub, decking and childrens’ play area.

Note: The Oak Barn (ONR), The Granary (ONT) and The Dairy (ONS) may be booked together to sleep up to 16 people
