Close to the owner’s home, Blakeskerra Barn is situated in Kenfig and is less than a minutes’ walk from the National Nature Reserve with its wide range of wildlife. Steeped in history, the village has castle ruins and a buried village, and the local pub is within walking distance.

Sker beach is accessible by a short walk from the property, where you can take your dogs on this rural beach and take in the fresh air and views. At low tide you can see the plaque which is in memory of those who died on the SS Santampa, and at very low tide wreckage is still being found here. Sker beach is also a great place surfers.

For those wanting to take in a country walk or cycling, then Margam Country Park is 4 miles from the property, hosting the fabulous Margam Castle. This park is set in 1000 acres of parkland full of history, wildlife and attractions for all.

Once you have finished your day exploring, head back to the barn and sit in the large garden, a short walk from the barn, where you can enjoy a barbecue and watch the sun go down. For those cooler nights, the wood burner in the living room will certainly keep you cosy. Beach 1 mile. Shop and restaurant 1 mile, pub 50 yards.

About the local area

Swansea, situated by an enclosed bay, has a long maritime tradition and is overlooked by brooding hills. The city has spacious green places in the form of extensive parklands and a striking shoreline. The wider county of Swansea lies within the Gower Peninsula, which was in fact Britain's very first designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.

This area offers visitors a varied mix of wonderful seascapes and sandy beaches, historic castles and woodland. Here there is evidence of early human occupation with some of the oldest human remains being discovered in this area. At just nineteen miles wide the Gower Peninsula is a microcosm of contrasting landscapes and ancient history.

For those staying within the Swansea area there are no less 54 public parks which extend right down to the shores of Swansea Bay. Of note is Clyne Gardens & Country Park which covers some 16 acres and includes panoramic sea views, bluebell woods, architectural follies, meandering streams, ornate bridges and a castle! Additionally horticulturists will not be disappointed with a large collection of plants and shrubs to be enjoyed. In fact it's a good idea for gardening enthusiasts to also head for Singleton Park which includes the city's botanical collection. Here you can also find a boating lake, picturesque Swiss cottage and is the place where large outdoor festivals and music galas are held.

To get a real taste of the local area visit Swansea Market, this is one of the largest indoor markets in the whole region and dates back to the twelfth century. It's a great place to potter around to soak up the local `colour' with stalls selling anything from fresh seafood to flowers and jewelry, souvenirs and local artworks.

The Gower Peninsula is simply ideal for holidays where lovely beaches, fun and relaxation are required. With a dramatic coastline it's ideal for cliff top walks and is the perfect place to re-connect with nature - it truly deserves its title `Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.
