This property has a fantastic location next to the promenade in Mumbles, a pretty seaside town just 5 miles south of Swansea that marks the beginning of the Gower Peninsula coastline.

Those after retail therapy will find a range of boutiques and high-end shops in town, there are restaurants and pubs aplenty and the Lovespoon Gallery is well worth a visit to see fine examples of the carved wooden spoons traditional to Wales. Langland Bay (3 miles) has a sheltered beach popular with families and water sports enthusiasts, and you can walk the coastal path to the neighbouring beaches of Rotherslade, Limeslade and Caswell.

The cottage is accessed via 15 stone steps to the front door. The cosy living area includes books and games along with a TV and a little dining table for two. The kitchen has all you need to cater for yourselves and there’s a convenient cloakroom with WC.

We thought that this property was a little gem set in the centre of the old fishing village. It was so convenient for access to the sea front and Knab Rock, famous for Verdi's cafe. It was quiet and secluded and had a lovely patio area at the rear.
