Description

If you love the sound of the sea and the smell of the sea air, then this end of terrace property is the one for you! It has been developed to a very good standard with slate flooring, contemporary kitchen and bathroom, a lovely wood burner and a pretty garden to the rear. The cottage is located on a hill climbing from Mumbles, and a short walk downhill takes you to Mumbles Beach and the sea front with its array of restaurants, pubs and coffee shops. Take a walk along the pier, and then sample some real microbrewery ales at The Mumbles Ale House. Alternatively, pack up a picnic, enjoy the spectacular views, then head over to the local nature reserve. On your return to the property, relax in this idyllic fisherman’s cottage with a glass of your favourite tipple whilst you plan the next day’s adventure! Beach ½ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

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'.
