Interaction with guests
The Lodge has had a very busy few years and we are pleased to confirm that we have had a 5v week refurbishment programme to give it the TLC it deserves. The Lodge now enjoys a larger kitchen and remodelled bathrooms. When you visit us you can be assured of as much or as little help and support you may need. We live close by but do not interfere unless invited. The Lodge can be combined with two other properties for larger groups and yet is totally private and separate.

The Lodge is awaiting a remodelled kitchen refit and new shower cubicles along with replacement blinds and carpets in November . The popularity of the Lodge can cause a problem when trying to address issues. Certainly not grubby but mould under silicone is unsightly and...More

The location is great and is easy to find from the M4. It is close to Swansea but feels like you are in the middle of the countryside. It is close to the Mumbles so a beach trip is easy. It is also close enough...More
