About the Owner

The Old Joinery has been in our family since it was built around 1910. This is the family home which we grew up in and was a working Joinery for almost a century until around 2010.

The house was completely refurbished in 2012 and we are pleased to say that all our visitors feel it has become a home from home.

We hope you decide to visit the Gower and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to email or text.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The Old Joinery really ticked all the boxes with providing a lovely environment for a family of a mixture of ages. We were absolutely blessed with the weather and the children enjoyed their time in the garden and games room (such a good idea for when the weather is not too good!).The bikes were also well utilised. Great to be working in the kitchen and not be isolated as we found the family tended to spend their time in the seating area opposite. Couldn't fault the bedrooms and beautiful bathroom/shower rooms. Would have no hesitation in recommending The Old Joinery for family occasions."

From the Owner

The house is particularly good for large families or 2 families to stay with flexible accommodation that will give you privacy but also plenty of space for socialising, both inside and out. It is easy to get to on a Friday evening, only 15 minutes from the M4. It is also a great base from which to explore the Gower and City of Swansea. The Gower Peninsula is a wonderful place to visit and offers something for everyone, from adrenaline junkies who can enjoy the surfing and coasteering to those looking for a more relaxing times, enjoying the beautiful coast paths and long history to be explored: the dramatic ruin of Pennard Castle on Three Cliffs Bay is a favourite of ours. We include leaflets for things to visit in and around the area but please let us know your new discoveries
