Property code: 52906

One of two spacious and stylish properties with garden. Located on a working livery in Llanrhidian at the heart of the Gower peninsula. Perfect for a romantic coastal retreat or an active break.

A cosy and stylish cottage that’s ideal for couples looking for a romantic break with their dogs. It’s on a working livery that stands in 60 acres of private grounds in the heart of the Gower Peninsula. You can reach Cefn Bryn, the sandstone ridge that forms the backbone of the Gower, direct from the property. From there, you have endless wonderful walks across open countryside that’s grazed by wild ponies. (Please check admittance for the various attractions).

Inside, the property has a large open-plan living space with doors out onto the garden and beautiful rural views. There is a well-equipped kitchen area with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine and a good-sized dining table. Perfect for cooking and eating romantic meals with the dogs curled up at your feet. There are comfortable sofas to curl up on in the lounge area, where you can enjoy lazy afternoons with a book or cosy evenings with a film. There’s also a spacious bedroom and bathroom, complete with more of those gorgeous views. Outside, there is a private enclosed garden with patio furniture and a hot tub. Relax and let the dogs run free while you do nothing at all. If you’re part of a bigger group, you can book the cottage with the property next door, Crickton Farmhouse.

The many tracks over Cefn Bryn can take you as far as the coast, including the beautiful Oxwich Bay, 6 miles away. It’s a favourite spot for surfers, backed by dunes and woodland. Nearby is the grand Tudor Oxwich Castle, overlooking the bay. Swansea Bay is a big draw for water sports fans, and the city of Swansea is a good place to spend an afternoon shopping or enjoying a lazy lunch.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The property is very well presented, and equipped. The owners were friendly and helpful when we had a couple of small issues. It is spacious for two people; however the back garden is very small if you have a dog which likes to exercise a bit. That said, it is well located and there are plenty of good walks within an easy drive.

Ideally placed, on a working livery yard, this cottage is beautiful inside and out, a short walk from 2 lovely pubs, a local shop/garage, and a short drive from fabulous beaches. The owner was excellent in every way, available to help if needed but also left us to the holiday which was perfect.

The cottage is very comfortable for two people and a dog. It has everything necessary for self-catering. Bedroom is lovely, comfy bed and good quality furniture (even space for exercises!). Very quiet. The little private garden is a sun trap, even in late October! The village of Llanrhidian is about a quarter of a mile down the road, where there isRead more a garage selling essentials.

The cottage is in the middle of a busy livery yard. But once you get into the cottage you are very secluded from the yard with a lovely view across the Moor.

The Crikton Cottage was comfortable and clean. The added pleasure of a hot tub made the holiday even better. He garden was small but well enclosed for our dog. Situated in a quiet setting but close enough to explore the fantastic beaches. The bedroom was a good size, along with a welll stocked bathroom.
