Mumbles, Swansea, Swansea County, Southern Wales, Wales
The cottage is a renovated stone building that at one time was the stable to one of the original farm houses (next door) on the hill in Mumbles over 150 years ago.

Dear Bryn, I am glad our expensive two year old leather sofas didn't wreak your stay too much. Parking is not the easiest if you don't have a car that can go up the lane behind our property where we have a garage. I know...More

About the neighbourhood
Walk or run around the cliffs. Visit the local beach or hop in the car ( or take your bike) and head down the Gower for a good pub lunch ( thats a good option rain or shine).

Walk up and over Overland road down the other side to the beach and 'Surf Side' my fav coffee spot. In the summer it is idyllic and the winter we have a wood burning fire and friendly local banter. Joes ice cream is a must as most of us that were born here were reared on it (it's won many awards but plain vanilla is the original flavor usually with choc chips or choc & nuts) Windsurfing and Kiting are all on offer in the bay and make f...
