The South Wales region
So much to do and to see in the surrounding area.
If you love nature and beautiful landscapes drive to the Botanical Gardens at Llanarthne, Carmarthenshire. It is a 45 minute journey but you will not be disappointed. The great dome glass house is impressive and home to plants from areas of the world which has a Mediterranean climate. The gardens are amazing all year round.
Closer to home and little known is Penllegaer woods, close to junction 47 off the M4 motorway. Unspoilt, with many woodland walks following the banks of its river.
Aberdulais falls, near Neath, are home to Europe's largest electric generating waterwheel. The falls are a spectacular sight! Its even possible to walk behind one!
The Dan-yr-Ogof caves situated in the Brecon Beacon's National Park are certainly on a par with the famous Cheddar caves. Quite as experience to enter.
The National Wetlands Centre at Penclacwydd, near Llanelli, gives visitors a closer look at wetland birds in as near a natural setting as is possible. A lovely cafe here, with a huge window overlooking the wetlands.
The Millennium Coastal Park, near Llanelli occupies approximately 10 miles of coastline on Bury estuary. It offers a continuous traffic free cycle/footpath.
Staff at the tourist information centre in the heart of Mumbles are very helpful and will help me out here and suggest places to suit you and your family. Enjoy!
From Caswell it is possible to take the coastal path all the way to Mumbles and what spectacular scenery you will see on the way! Around the first headland are the bays of Langland and Rotherslade. Bracelet Bay next then comes Limeslade. Mumbles light house can be seen and also the Mumbles Pier which was commissioned as the terminus for the old Swansea to Mumbles railway. Incidentally Mumbles train was the first passenger line in the world. Verdi's an ice cream parlour/cafe is a welcome sight on the way.
Mumbles is a delightful fishing village complete with its own 12th century castle standing on a small hill overlooking the magnificent Swansea Bay.
There is a five mile cycle path ( bicycles can be hired locally) running along the seafront taking you to the new marina and passing the LC which is Swansea's brand new leisure centre. Close by is the National Maritime Museum.
What has Swansea town to offer?
Lots and lots and with such variety. Its theatre boasts a wide choice of shows and exhibitions for everyone to enjoy. No forgetting the Dylan Thomas theatre which is most certainly worth a visit. There's the Plantastia too, a unique tropical haven of wonderful exotic plants and animals.
But there's the whole of the Gower Peninsula beckoning in all its glory to explore. Full of culture, endless coastal and woodland walks,beautiful beaches and variety of water sports to enjoy.
Do as little or as much as you please, but you cannot help but enjoy and be impressed by Britain's first area of outstanding natural beauty.

"Room With A View"
We booked this apartment because of the sea view and general description. We found it on Owners Direct and generally find it to be a good site to find holiday lets. We were very pleased with both the sea view which was lovely and the apartment in general. We had a lovely relaxing week and days out too. The apartment had lots of lovely hot water too and lots of towels. We stayed in eating meals because we preferred to relax instead of going out. We would definitely recommend this apartment to any one. In addition we loved being able to walk straight out of the apartment onto a the lovely beach and the coastal path.
We were so pleased to read your review and to hear you had enjoyed your stay. Although there are an abundance of places to eat closeby it is also so pleasant to "stay at home" and enjoy the comfort and views from the apartment.
Once we have prepared the apartment for our next guests we love to stroll across the beach for a coffee and well earned toasted tea cake! We believe we are the Surfside cafe's best customers! It was good to bump into you on the beach on our return! Thank you for taking time and writing such a lovely review.We do appreciate it.

"A Perfect Retreat"
This is our 4th year returning to Caswell Bay. We cannot find a better location. A property right on the beach with stunning views and amenities just a short drive away. We feel completely relaxed the minute we arrive and you find yourself constantly drawn to just sitting a watching the sea from the huge window.
In terms of what the property provides for young families it is brilliant. Lots of games and books, a booster seat, cot bed, stairgate and even a huge bag of spades and beach toys. Hugh and Auriol are wonderful, thoughtful Owners who take every care to ensure you have everything you need. I would highly recommend this property.
And you're coming back again next year! We take nothing for granted and are so pleased that you and your family have enjoyed your stay. Thank you so much for taking time to write such lovely comments and I read with pleasure that you were able to relax immediately. We are staying in 2A as I write and gaze out of the window the last of the evening sun has settled on the headland to the left of the bay. Love the changing skies as much as that wonderful sea out there. We will be returning too!

"What a view!"
A home from home,very warm and cosy.Great facilities.Friendly welcome by the hosts.watching the sun rise from the lounge window was my highlight.
That, simply, is our main aim - to provide "a home from home" which is both comfortable and relaxing for our visitors to enjoy. We have the location, we strive to match it with providing the very best accommodation we can. Thank you for your lovely comments.

"Fabulous apartment in wonderful location never fails to impress"
This apartment is the perfect base to enjoy the beauty of the Gower Peninsular with one of its best beaches, Caswell bay on the doorstep.
No matter the weather sunshine or rain the view is nothing short of spectacular. We have stayed in both 2a and 3a and both apartments are brilliantly equiped catering for every aspect of the holiday.
The kitchen has everything one could possibly need and there are an array of books and games to occupy young an old.
A short drive to mumbles village gives you plenty of choice of pubs, bars and restaurants not forgetting mumbles pier.
This aprtmentment truly offers all you could need for a relaxing and enjoyable family holiday even with little children as we have. We hope to return for many years.
Thank you for those great comments! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We too, feel that its situation is ideal for exploring the sights and delights of the Gower. Mumbles, being a short distance away has much to offer visitors including a twelve century castle now open to the public as well as a huge choice of restaurants, cafes and great small shops as you have mentioned.
Thank you for choosing our apartment, we look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the future.

"Beautiful apartment, fantastic views, what a location!!!"
We stayed at 3A Redcliffe apartment for a long stay over the winter period and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The apartment had been furnished to a high spec. The owners were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Great location, short walks to neighbouring beaches, we enjoyed stopping off at the Langland Brassiere for lunch and taking a short stroll across Caswell beach to the surfside café which offered light snacks and wonderful coffee. Fantastic for couples and young families. The weather was very kind to us with so much light streaming through the large lounge windows you would think it was summer! Photo attached was taken first week in January.
We've had a long stay in the apartment too and missed the sea views terribly when we bought a house in the area. Location is everything! One day we may return! Really pleased to hear you enjoyed your time in the apartment.

"Really a great place to stay at any time of the year."
The flat was so comfortable and the view out of the sitting room window was incredible. Even if the weather was not conducive to being outside, one could sit and enjoy the beach.
The nearby trails were also a joy, well maintained and pretty easy walking.
Hugh and Auriol Williams couldn't have been more willing to help and make us feel at home. They went out of their way to be great hosts.
Thank you for those kind comments. Pleased to hear our accommodation suited and gave you a relaxing holiday with your little one. Work has been completed to improve the surface of the coastal path to the next bay in Langland. I recommend the carrot cake at the Brasserie! The walk there and back will, I'm sure, burn off all those extra calories! We agree, Rhossili Bay is a must if you visit the Gower - a stunning beach! We look forward to welcoming you back.

My Husband and I had a wonderful stay, The apartment has everything you need and more, very clean and confortable.. The views are to die for and I could have stayed for ever. The area is so peaceful.
I'd live there forever too but my husband would miss pottering in his garden. Redcliffe v husband? It's a close call!!!

"A veritable jewel - a perfect stay."
My 19 year old daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful long weekend at this fabulously appointed apartment. The apartment is very comfortable and thoughtfully equipped, with the most stunning views. The owners are a delightful couple who clearly care about the well-being of their guests. We can't wait to return.
So pleased to hear you enjoyed your short break at Redcliffe. We do listen to our guests and endeavour to provide the very best for our holiday makers.

"The view from this flat is a holiday in itself"
We wanted to stay in this block when we first came to Gower. The location is gorgeous - nothing but a few steps between your living room and the cleanest beach I've seen in Europe. There's loads to do when the weather turns (it tends to), with amazing walks and proper castles to explore. Fantastic surf - I was in every day except 2. The flat has a wonderful panoramic view and we've never met more congenial hosts. Well equipped flat, but next time we'll bring our own corkscrew... We'd love to come back!
Oops, I apologise for that missing cork screw! I can imagine how frustrating that must have been! Be assured it has been quickly replaced! It is just wonderful to just walk down to the bay in seconds - be it early in the morning when there is no one on the beach - or during the early evening when the light is starting to drop - the colours across the bay are magnificent!

"Excellent - cliche but home from home"
We know the location well, and have stayed in other apartments in the building, but this one surpassed previous stays. Very well equipped, clean and spacious. The children's games and books provided exceeded expectations and were great in keeping our toddler occupied in rainy periods. The owners are very friendly and helpful, but don't impose. We will be staying again next year, and inviting our friends to stay in the adjoining apartment.
