There are 3 bedrooms. A family room with a double and a single bed, wardrobe and dressing table, a double room with a pine double bed, dressing table and walk in wardrobe and a bunk room with pine beds and full size pine wardrobe. Additional sleeping can be arranged via the sofa bed in the lounge. Linen and towels are provided for B&B guests only at no extra costs. Well behaved dogs are welcome. Its worth noting that during the peak season (May to October) dogs do not need to be kept on a lead at Three Cliffs Bay unlike other beaches around Gower. Guests are welcome to access the kitchen to make coffee/tea/hot chocolate. The upstairs lounge is available for guests to watch satellite TV or play videos/DVD's or music CD's or any of the games that are provided. Access to the patio is available to all guests.
The Cottage is deceptively spacious and never fails to amaze visitors who stay. The lounge area is bright and airy with ample seating to plan the day ahead. Patio doors lead onto a terrace which catches the sun for most of the day.
I live next door to The Cottage with my teenage daughter and dog (Lucky - a highly intelligent springer/cocker mix). We have 3 horses and enjoy every aspect of country/beach living during all seasons. Parkmill is just so ideal with the local store, "Shepherds" providing all immediate necessities and an hourly bus service taking us into Swansea or the nearest town (Killay) for our weekly shopping. We are reducing our carbon footprint by using local transport and will one day use our horses for our weekly shop-up!
We used to live in London and bought the cottage for a holiday retreat. After a number of years and lots of M4 mileage, we decided to move permanently to Parkmill and have never regretted that decision. It's a beautiful little village with breathtaking scenery so close by that we do not need people to visit us to take us there, we go there regularly and appreciate every minute. Granted Three Cliffs Bay is stunning no matter what the weather, but there are many other walks like over Cefn Bryn to Arthur's Stone or to Giants Grave (a forestry owned woodland) and we often visit Cat Rock, a cave inhabited by bats in the woodland. We often walk to Three Cliffs Bay and then the full length of Oxwich Bay to the Hotel (tide permitting).
Staying in Parkmill has the benefit of not needing a car to go to the beach, pub (Gower Inn) restaurant (Mais Yr Haf or local shop (Shepherds). The Heritage Centre is a two minute walk and provides excellent facilities for children with an indoor and outdoor play area, puppet theatre and cafe. They often hold music events (with BBQ and bar) so another superb night out.

Cracking cottage in a brilliant location, right at the top of the path down to what I think is the best beach in the UK, Three Cliffs bay. Not sure about the previous review but we found the cottage clean and old fashioned, the snug with the woodburner was simply brilliant over a cold Easter. The owner replaced the TV whilst we were there and it has good wifi and satellite. Thoroughly recommended.
