We are in a convenient & quiet location for visiting Mumbles, Gower and Swansea. It’s a 5 min walk from beach & coast path, 10 min from shops, cafes & bars of Mumbles & 10 min drive to the Uni.
There is private parking and a tiny seating area outside the house.

The space
You’ll be staying in a spotlessly clean and colourful self contained bedroom suite with a kitchenette, ensuite shower room and a tiny outdoor seating area.
The recently installed separate kitchenette has a sink, mini fridge, kettle, microwave, toaster, crockery and cutlery and is opposite the bedroom. It’s fully functional but the decoration is a work in progress as I take the time in between hosting to fill the walls! There’s also a mini dining table and chairs for your use in the hallway.
The chairs and headboard in the bedroom are upholstered in Caroline’s textile designs and one wall of the room is taken up by fitted wardrobes which you can use to store your luggage and clothes in during your stay.
The en-suite has a shower, toilet and sink.
Your suite is at the front of the house next to the front door. You have sole access to the front door and to give you privacy we keep the inner door to the main house locked.
We have signed up to the Airbnb Covid cleaning policy so the space will be spotlessly clean.
Our property is within 10 minutes walk of the beach and the village of Mumbles.

Where you’ll be

Swansea, United Kingdom

If you want a few days to relax, walk, eat, drink and leave your car, the beaches, coastal path, castle and village of Mumbles are all close by.
We are in a convenient location on a very quiet road road with easy access to the amenities of the area. Turn left out of the front door and it takes 5-10 minutes to walk to Rotherslade Beach which is sandy and pebbly with a cafe serving breakfast, lunch and coffee all day. 5 minutes walk round the corner to the right is Langland Bay which is a larger sandy beach, popular with surfers and paddle boarders. It is renowned for it's beach huts, palm trees and Surfside cafe on the beach. There is also a good restaurant, Langland Brasserie, at the far end. If you continue on the coastal path, it'll take you about 40 mins to walk from Langland to Caswell beach where there are other takeaway cafes on the beach. If you're lucky you may see some seals on the way!
Turn right out of the front door and within 10 minutes you'll be in Mumbles with a good selection of shops, cafes, bars, Oystermouth Castle, and Joes Ice Cream.
The closest access to the coastal path is at Rotherslade from where you can walk around the Gower Peninsula, taking in Caswell, Oxwich, Rhossili and Llangennith. If you have less time you can walk the cliff path in the opposite direction and head towards Mumbles, taking in the Lighthouse, pier and lifeboat house on the way.
There is a list of restaurants, cafes and bars in your room along with plenty of maps and information on the area and suggestions of where to visit.
If you fancy surfing we can recommend the Progress Surf School in LLangennith which provides all the equipment and lessons for groups and individuals. We have a kayak which may be available to borrow - just ask.
If you are staying to visit Swansea University or Singleton Hospital the walk along the prom will take about 40 mins or 10 mins in the car.

I am an artist / designer and I love beautiful spaces and landscapes. I work from my studio in the garden of my house near the beach on the beautiful Gower Peninsula. I live with my partner Brian and our 17 year old daughter. We also have 3 older children who are in University. We live in a beautiful part of the world but also enjoy visiting other interesting places.
