Tucked away just 2 minutes from the seafront, lovely Shell is raised up arm-in-arm with a huddle of traditional Gower fishermen's cottages . We loved the thoughtfully designed interior of this sweet coastal retreat - everything we needed, a place for everything and everything in...More

About the neighbourhood
Mumbles, located just 5 miles along the bay from the City of Swansea is the gateway to the beautiful Gower Peninsular and a vibrant bustling and popular location for holidays. It is a romantic seaside village steeped in history and home to a Victorian pier, the Promenade with cycle path which stretches almost 7 miles around the bay from the Georgian lighthouse to Swansea Marina and the medieval Oystermouth Castle which overlooks the village. Visitors can explore the pretty boutiques, shops and galleries which line the streets. Shell Cottage is located just a few seconds walk from the Promenade or the Mumbles Road which both lead to the centre of the village in less than a 10 minute stroll or to the pier in about 5 minutes.
Getting around
To the west of Mumbles and about a 10 minute walk from Shell Cottage, you will find the charming coves of Bracelet Bay and Limeslade with children's play park, Pizzeria and restaurant with stunning sea views of the lighthouse. From Bracelet Bay begins a scenic cliff-top walk which follows the spectacular coastline round to a number of sandy beaches including Rotherslade (15 minutes walk), Langland (20 minutes) and Caswell Bay (40 minutes). These beaches and many others are also easily accessible by car from Shell Cottage and both Langland (5 minutes drive) and Caswell (less than 10 minutes drive) have accessible carparking. Both are wonderful sandy beaches with rock pools ideal for families with beach shops and cafes just off the sand.
