Only 2 miles from the nearest of many sandy beaches, these three very comfortable cottages have been converted from a 16th-century barn and nestle in 31 acres of the owner’s working farm/livery between Gower’s two highest hills – with glorious walking straight from the door. Commanding farmland views, the cottages enjoy shared use of a garden with stream and duck pond (children will need supervision), and there are animals to visit in the farmland grounds.
Gower is Britain’s first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers a wide range of outdoor pursuits, including pony-trekking, bird-watching, golf and water sports, Llangennith is well known for the quality of its surfing (school on beach). The coastline shelters many beautiful bays and secluded coves with coastal walks and abundant wildlife. The headland, owned by the NT, has a most spectacular coastal path which veers along crags above thundering waves for 5 miles to Rhossili via Paviland Cave, and then to Worms Head which can be explored at low tide.
