About Melissa Howard

I am originally from Wales and have always loved holidaying in the Gower. As a family we enjoy regular stays in Myrtle Cottage and we hope that you will too!

Melissa Howard purchased this cottage in 2005

What makes this cottage unique

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 loves to play golf and has enjoyed playing many of the local courses with his friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic cottage in the best location! All the comforts of home. We will definitely be back next summer.

Bobby & Tracey Berrington-Smith, New Zealand.

We can't say how much we enjoyed out holiday in Myrtle Cottage! The best beaches in Wales and some of the best pubs! We haven't been to Mumbles before but will be back next year. Carol & Wills, Wimbledon

Brilliant location. We had a fantastic week away with the family and doggie came too! Well equipped and welcoming, we can't recommend highly enough! Thanks X. Laura & Andrew, Surrey.

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Clean, tidy & excellent position, just a street away from the sea. This quaint cottage had everything we required for a perfect stay in Mumbles.

The help & guidance given by Melissa both prior & during our stay was first class with everything on hand as promised.

The house was tastefully decorated from top to bottom and felt a bit like a 'Tardis', bigger in the inside than the outside suggested.

We have visited Swansea a number of times and the advice given to eat at the White Rose Pub was both very filling & kind on the pocket!

I would recommend family & friends to stay here without hesitation & hope that we can be back next year.

Thanks for everything.

Paul, Sharon & Keely

Good Location within walking distance for Beach,Shops and Pubs.Property was clean with good facilities apart from a leaky shower. There are several fantastic beaches within half hour drive where our dogs enjoyed some freedom. Would recommend for dog friendly,or Family stay.
