Brook House is situated in the picturesque hamlet of Brook, at the head of Cwm Curyll (The Valley of the Hawks), a mile from Laugharne to the east and Pendine to the west. There are 3 holiday lets which were converted from farm buildings and an original forge many years ago, and which have recently undergone complete refurbishment. There is also a small, self-contained campsite on the other side of the property which caters for both touring caravans and tents. The whole complex benefits from a truly rural position with neighbouring dairy farms and fantastic views over the sand dunes to the Gower Peninsular in the distance.
Gower View is a light and airy apartment; ideal for a couple or a solo traveller. The flat is accessed by an external staircase so would not be suitable for those with severe mobility restrictions. Gower View has a comfortable double bedroom, spacious sitting/dining room, well-equipped kitchen area as well as a compact but functional bathroom. The property benefits from gas central heating and instant hot water. There is an electric oven, ceramic hob, microwave and fridge. The Freeview flat screen TV also has an integral DVD player and a good selection of DVDs can be borrowed from the main house. There are gardens surrounding the property with plenty of places to sit and enjoy the peaceful location. There is a gas BBQ available for alfresco dining. We do allow up to two well-behaved, fully housetrained pets for a small extra charge. Please note pets must be kept off all soft furnishings and may not be left alone in the property at any time. Please clear up after pets in the gardens.
There are many places to visit and things to do in this unspoilt part of Wales. The ancient Township of Laugharne is best known as the home of Dylan Thomas and visits to the Boat House where he lived and wrote and Browns Hotel where he drank and mused are not to be missed. The ruined Norman Castle is also well worth a visit with its fantastic views over the Taf Estuary. A mile or so west of Brook is the village of Pendine with its tremendous 7 mile beach famous for numerous land speed records and now home to the Museum of Speed. A little further afield are the seaside resorts of Saundersfoot and Tenby and the attractions at Bluewater, Oakwood and Heatherton. The Millennium Coastpath passes the property, just across the road. For mountain bike enthusiasts the Brechfa Forest is just a car journey away and we have secure storage for bikes.
