Spacious And Comfortable Detached House In A Stunningly Beautiful area Of Wales



Updated: 11-Oct-2016
House on Gower Peninsula/Swansea Bay, South Wales. - Tempting Choice Of Golf Nearby, Ideal For Family Holidays, Multiple Pets Are Very Welcome

Gower Edge is a comfortable and well equipped property which provided us with a happy family home until we had to move for work. We enjoy self catering holidays with our children and dog, and we have endeavoured to provide the level of accommodation that we hope to find ourselves. Previous guests have commented on the friendliness of the area and the enjoyment that they have had from the books, games and videos provided, but the most frequent comment is about the large size of the house, which gives larger groups plenty of room to spread out and relax in, with three large living areas. There is also an additional conservatory overlooking the back garden, so you really are spoiled for choice. The house is centrally placed for visiting not only the Gower, but also surrounding areas such as the Brecon Beacons, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire. Many and varied activities are available on the doorstep if you can drag yourself away from the lovely beaches. Find inspiration on our website!

About the Owner

Although originally from England (Leicester and Southampton) we lived in South Wales for nineteen years, and both our children were born in Swansea. The last nine of those years were spent in Gower Edge, a house with many happy memories, in a welcoming community, and one to which we hope to return one day (having moved currently for work). We feel privileged to have lived in such a beautiful part of the country, and we hope to share some of the scenery and lifestyle with you.

When you contact us you will either speak to me (Sylvia) or Louise, who is a work colleague who also loves the area, and helps with the organisation of the letting. If you would like a fuller flavour of the area, or have specific requests for your stay we will do our best to help, so please don't hesitate to ask.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The guest book on our website includes all comments left by our guests. Here are a few:

"We have had a wonderful weekend break in this lovely spacious family house. Our daughter competed in th Welsh National Swimming Competition and between races we enjoyed the beautiful weather. Walks on the stunning beach, ice creams at Joe's and dinner in Mumbles. Hard to fault it!"

"What a wonderful house! Had a brilliant time and met lots of old friends and colleagues. The weather was really good! Even back home they had a 35 degree heat wave. The only downside was that we didn't have the dogs with us. --- Next time!"

"Great house and an ideal spot to explore the Gower! We liked the way the kids could be rocking out in the front room but the adults couldn't hear them in the conservatory. Ho ho! Unperturbed by the welsh "summer" we still had an excellent holiday and a comfortable stay! Many thanks" PS Zeera is a great indian takeaway. PPS Thanks to David next door for being so friendly!"

From the Owner

Our property used to be our family home when we lived and worked in Swansea. Both attended the local primary school in this fantastic little community of Dunvant, and we had a wonderful time in a house which has always had a very happy atmosphere. We had to move for work in 2005, but in hopes of returning one day, we decided to see if we could use the house as a holiday let. We try to keep prices reasonable to ensure the vacancy rate is low, and the local economy is supported. We have always loved the easy access onto the beautiful Gower Peninsula, combined with the convenience of living near local amenities. Swansea itself also has much to offer, with outstanding park facilities, its own very nice beach and a commitment to a festival atmosphere. We hope you will visit soon and enjoy!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Cardiff Airport at 30 Miles


Gower Edge is centrally placed to visit all the beaches on the Gower. Swansea Bay is about 10 mins by car, and about 40 minutes on foot, if you fancy a walk through Clyne Valley, following the cycle path. The closest Gower beach is Caswell Bay, which is about 12-15 mins by car, and Rhossili is at the furthest tip, which is about 30 minutes. Three Cliffs, Oxwich, Port Eynon and Langland are the best known sandy beaches to the South, with Caswell, Langland and Rhossili best known for surfing.


Cardiff Airport is about an hour away by car, and the London airports are around 3-4 hours from the region. Motorway access is via the M4 from the East and West and the M5/M50 from the North and South. A car is probably recommended, although if you are after a laid back holiday, public transport will get you out onto the Gower, and cycle hire is available locally.


Killay shopping precinct, 5 minutes. Swansea City centre, 10-15 mins. Cardiff, 40-50 mins. Carmarthen, 40 mins. Brecon Beacons, 30mins to an hour depending on destination. Pembrokshire 1-2 hr, depending on destination. All destinations on the Gower Peninsula within 30 minutes. There is a direct train line from London to Swansea.

Further Details:

So what can I say to persuade you to visit the Gower Peninsula? My first reason for feeling that little lift as I turn off at Junction 48 of the M4 is the people. Swansea folk don't take themselves too seriously, and they don't get worked up over things (although Swansea City are doing their best to overcome that!). Life is relaxed and you are free to be who you want to be; and for me, that is an excellent starting point for a holiday.

Then you have the scenery. The Gower Peninsula was the first area of outstanding natural beauty in the UK, and as someone who grew up in Southampton, I do like to be by the sea. Gower does coastline to a spectacular level (ample evidence on our Pinterest boards), and even the city of Swansea gets in on the act, with the great sweep of Swansea Bay as its southern boundary, and magical Mumbles as a full stop. Gower itself has a number of famous sandy beaches, but it's fun to explore the lesser known coves, or seek out the less visited North Gower coast where the famous Gower salt marsh lamb is farmed.

If you like a little activity, there are opportunities for surfing, fishing, climbing, coasteering, cycling and walking, to name but a few. If you want to learn something new you could try your hand at archery, chocolate making or photography. Bring your golf clubs and try out one of the many beautiful local courses or bring your binocculars and spot birds galore in the varied local habitats. When you are ready, select an evening retreat for a wonderful meal, live music or a visit to the theatre, or book your stay to coincide with one of the many festivals in the area.

The Gower is big enough to give a different experience for every day of your holiday, but small enough see all in one go from the top of Cefn Bryn, the highest point on the Gower. So maybe drive out there first, visit Arthur's Stone (a prehistoric burial mound), and make your plans with the view as the backdrop. I hope I've whetted your appetite - happy holidays!

From the Owner

Gower Edge is convenient for all areas of the Gower, the cities of Swansea and Cardiff (40 mins), and for day trips to the Brecon Beacons and Pembrokeshire during your stay. The property has three living rooms on the ground floor, plus a conservatory and a large secluded rear garden. This means there is plenty of room for the family to spread out and guests frequently comment on the amount of books, toys, games and videos available to keep the children amused whilst the adults chill. Louise and I have sought to provide the items which we would hope to find when we take our children on holiday. There is a convenience store a 100m from the house for your daily needs, and many more store and pub options in nearby Killay. The property has free wi-fi access.
