Description

This lovely semi-detached, converted barn, previously a cow shed, is set in a perfect location for those who love the beach and coastal properties. Ideal for families and groups looking to explore Gower, the property is situated on the Gower Peninsula overlooking Worm’s Head, next door to the owner and a short distance from their working farm. It is within walking distance to the nearest pub and restaurant.
This characterful barn has plenty to offer for groups of all size, and plenty of room for your pets. It offers three bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor with en-suite facilities. There are three fabulous local beaches to explore, Llangennith beach, Fall Bay and Three Cliffs Bay, where there are lots of activities available such as surfing, or you can simply just relax in the sunshine. Perriswood Archery and Falconry Centre is approximately 6 miles from the property, where you can hold and feed the various birds they have there.
Worm’s Head is a great adventure, and part of the Wales Coast Path. Walk over the cliffs and rocks to enjoy the fabulous views from the top of Worm’s Head right over to parts of the Devon coast on a clear day. You may even catch a glimpse of the seals too!
Once you have done all that walking, come back to the property to sit in the enclosed garden with the barbecue lit and watch the sunset over the sea. Beach ¼ mile. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant ¼ 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'.
