Unrivaled Cliffside/Country Gower Location

  • 5 of 5

Our week in Southgate staying in Sharon's guest house was brilliant. First of all, the location was perfect for us - directly across from the cliffs with views in all directions (even to Devon on a clear day). The Three Cliffs coffee house is very good and a convenient walk down the road; the small store associated with it is terrific for obtaining everything necessary for a meal. Mumbles, with lots of restaurants, is a short drive away. The usual shopping is available for groceries and other stores, but the area is not commericalized or over-run with tourists. Sharon was wonderful, even loaning us a coffee machine. She was the ideal host - available but not intrusive. The house is clean, modern and comfortable. The photos are accurate. The area is peaceful and perfect for walking (or radio-control gliders, my husband's hobby). Within a day we were already discussing how much we hope to return on our next trip to the UK from the US.

Beautiful property in an idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights at this property in January 2017 in search of some quality time and a relaxing break and we were not disappointed! The high standard accommodation was ideally situated close to the coastal path with an easy bus route into Mumbles. We received a very warm welcome by the owner, Sharon, who went out of her way to make our stay a memorable one. We would certainly consider returning to this property and exploring more of the spectacular beaches and lovely walks.

We throughly enjoyed our weekend stay rediscovering the beautiful Gower peninsula. A lovely welcome by Sharon who was on hand if needed. The house was spotlessly clean, we would not hesitate to recommend or indeed return to in the future.

The property was immaculate, extremely comfortable and very well positioned.

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful. It is decorated and maintained to a very high standard and has all the comforts you need for a lovely holiday. It has a perfect location on the cliffs for walking and exploring the area. Sharon (the owner) is lovely. She will meet you and show you round and is on hand nearby for anything else you may need during your stay. If you are wanting to visit this area, I would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and complimentary comments about my holiday let. Guests can find recommended places to eat in the holiday information pack and on arrival I always make suggestions about my favourite eateries so that these can be enjoyed by all. There are three local places to eat in the village which includes a cafe (ten minutes walk away), a local club and Golf Club which all do good food. There are four places in the neighbouring village of Bishopston which includes a Gastro Pub. In Mumbles (which is a short drive away) there are many cafes and restaurants to choose from which cater for all tastes so everyone can find something they enjoy. The visitors' information is updated regularly to ensure new places can be visited.

Immaculately presented and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Lovely location on the beautiful south coast of the Gower. Property in excellent condition throughout and Sharon made us very welcome indeed. There are stunning beaches, numerous walks, castles galore and many excellent restaurants and pubs all within easy reach. We would recommend around Mumbles in particular for restaurants.
