Description

These six holiday properties (refs 31182, 31183, 31184, 31185, UK6456 and UK6457) are situated on the working sheep and cattle farm that was once the home farm of the historic Plas Cilybebyll Estate. The cottages and barns, whose owners also live at the farm, are located between the Brecon Beacons National Park and Gower Peninsula. The traditional stone buildings are set in a courtyard, alongside the picturesque River Clydach where wildlife flourishes – heron, wild trout, dipper, squirrels and red kites have all been spotted from the cottage windows. The walks start on your doorstep, including the farm trail on-site, where guests are welcome to explore over 100 acres of private countryside that includes bluebell woodland, mountain streams and hillside pastures, with panoramic views of the Welsh countryside. There is much to explore in the surrounding areas and interests for all ages, such as The National Showcaves of Wales, the stunning beaches of the Gower (Britain’s first designated Area of Outstanding National Beauty), the Victorian seaside resort of Mumbles with its promenade, and the Vale of Neath, which is renowned for its waterfall walks and for the energetic Afan Forest Park, home to 5 world-class trails for the mountain biking enthusiasts. The complex is conveniently located to enjoy day trips to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park or the spectacular Glamorganshire Heritage Coast. Swansea itself with its many bars, restaurants and shopping is within easy driving and Cardiff, the bustling capital city of Wales, is well worth a visit with its castle, museum and Millennium Stadium. Ty Gambo can be booked together with Bwythn Y Saer (31182), Hafod Y Wennol (31183), Y Stabl (31184), Ty Cerbyd (31185) and Lloc Lo (UK6456) to accommodate up to 26 guests. Beach 10 miles. Shop 1 mile, pub 1½ miles and restaurant 2 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'.
