Ship Cottage Annexe Pwll Du Gower

Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Bishopston, Swansea County, Southern Wales, Wales
This is a truly unique holiday experience away from roads, traffic and street lights. Access is via the owner's 4x4 down a half mile track cut into the cliff and through a ford in the nearby river. Once here you will access most places by foot, be able to spend hours on the beach or seek adventures amongst the numerous footpaths that leave here to access Gower's beaches, castles, pubs and cafes!

There are of course some draw backs:
- Vehicular access is by 4x4 only
- Heating is via wood burning stove
- Mobile phone reception is very limited

But then think of the positives:
- Vehicular access is by 4x4 only!
- Heating is via wood burning stove!
- Mobile phone reception is very limited!
- Peace, quiet, owls, bats, stars, the sound of the sea at night…

This enchanting, picturesque bay is set within the heart of the Gower P...

If you need to escape for a few days of peaceful relaxation then this is the place for you!!! Great walks, coastal and inland. The beach is a mixture of sand and pebbles with only the occasional walker passing through. Circular walk to Caswell Bay...More

The 19 mile-long Gower Peninsula starts at Mumbles and extends westwards.
