A balcony at the rear of the property gives you access to the patio and a peaceful area to relax in, with table and chairs and a brick built barbecue.

The lounge has French doors that open up onto the balcony where you can listen to the relaxing sound of the birdsong and brook.

A sofa bed in the lounge can be used as a double bed. (Children only)

Fantastic little cottage and we really enjoyed our stay. We loved the location - a few minutes from Langland Bay and only 30 minutes from Rhossili which is well worth a visit. Plenty of nice places to eat nearby too. Thanks!

We had a delightful stay at this quaint cottage in Mumbles, for our first visit to Wales. It has a well equipped kitchen and there is a washing machine for laundry. Chris is a great host and everything went to plan with checkin and check out.

A fantastic find! This was our first experience with Air B&B and it was a very easy. Great communication from Chris. The cottage was really lovely and huge amount of space compared to a B&B room that you would find anywhere else. This is a fully equipped little house!

Lovely cottage, well located for getting to all the beautiful beaches nearby. Easy walk down into the Mumbles for an evening stroll and a drink. Highly recommended.
