We stayed here for just one night but I would love to have stayed longer. Great attention to detail, for example a fridge in the room and complimentary bathrobes, and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was delicious with local ingredients and plenty of choice. Lots to do in the area and within walking distance of the Mumbles. All in all, a great...

This b&b gets it right where it matters. Very clean room with good quality linen and a good bed. The bathroom was spotless with lovely toiletries and a good shower. Only grip was the shower cubicle design meant you had to go sideways getting in and out. The room had a good tea tray and a decent TV. The wifi...

We stayed here in June for 2 nights and could not have been more pleased. It is perfectly situated on the bay and has easy access to everything in the area. Mary and Lin could not have been more gracious or accommodating. We arrived in a downpour and they graciously greeted 2 very-drenched guests and immediately provided towels to dry...

I am of Welsh heritage so I wanted to bring my wife and daughter to Wales to share this heritage. Tides Reach, Swansea, Mumbles, and the Gower provided a wonderful introduction to the “Land of my Fathers.” This property is in a fantastic location on the seafront. The beach is right across the road and within easy walking distance of...

We stayed here over the August Bank Holiday weekend for our wedding anniversary and really enjoyed our stay. Mary and Lin were wonderful hosts and their dogs are adorable.
