    What are the unique benefits of the property?

    We love to spend time with our 2 girls on the beach, usually Langland when we are in Mumbles and our dog Maxi enjoys running about on the beach too! We have great fun trying to surf and body board and generally messing around in the sea. My husband lovesto play golf and has enjoyed playing many of the local courses with his friends.
