Description

If you want a rural location with lots of wonderful wildlife, cows and sheep, then this is the place to be. Nestled on the owners’ 310-acres working farm, you can hear a pin drop at this location. This original semi-detached shepherds cottage, which dates back to the early 1800s, has been lovingly restored to a high standard.
This property is perfect for those who either enjoy a walking holiday or just want to relax. There are an abundance of wild birds which can be seen, such as peregrines, kestrels and red kites to name but a few. There is a lovely country pub located 1½ miles from the property, and it is just a short walk from the Lliw Reservoir. Enjoy the fabulous views of the scenic landscape of Mynydd y Gwair (Hay Mountain), with views of the Gower Peninsular to the south with its golden beaches, only 15 miles away, and the Brecon Beacons National Park to the north. Why not just kick back and relax in front of the multi-fuel burner, no slippers needed here as the underfloor heating will toast your toes. Beach 15 miles. Shop 7 miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

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'.
