House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Check out our spacious and comfortable property for your special trip this year. We have three downstairs living rooms and four double bedrooms so there is plenty of room to spread out! Gower Edge has off road parking for up to three cars at the front and a secluded garden to the rear and we are dog friendly for multiple dogs so you really can bring the whole family with you! We are centrally placed to visit both Swansea Bay and the Gower as well as being within easy day trip reach of Pembrokeshire, the Brecon Beacons and Cardiff.
If you are after a home from home, the well equipped kitchen has a dual fuel range cooker, fridge freezer, dishwasher and microwave, and there is a washing machine and tumble drier in the conservatory. There is plenty of choice if you choose to eat out as well. From Killay to Mumbles there are many pubs and restaurants hoping they can tempt you in, and we have some tasty local Take Aways and excellent independent butchers and grocers as well!
At the end of a busy day you will want to snuggle in for the night. There are four large and comfortable double bedrooms (three twins and a king size) on the first floor. The upstairs bathroom has a corner bath and separate shower and there is a further bathroom downstairs with wash hand basin. We have been complemented frequently on our wide range of books, toys, games and DVDs which keep the kids (both young and old) amused whilst the adults chill, so you will be able to enjoy your time at home as well.
The Gower and Swansea Bay offer a wide range of activities for all ages including coasteering, surfing, sea fishing and kayaking. Walking, golfing and cycling remain popular and are a great way to appreciate the local countryside. The beaches are, of course, a favourite both summer and winter and you really are spoilt for choice in this area of outstanding natural beauty. The Wales Coast Path skirts the edge of the Gower and the festival city of Swansea offers many and varied calendar highlights throughout the year. Whether you book a fortnight or a short break you will find plenty to keep you and your family occupied and will find yourself refreshed and your batteries recharged by the end of your stay.
We would love to be part of your journey so feel free to ask as many questions as you like before booking, we're here to help. Thanks for looking and maybe we'll see you soon!

The large garden to the rear of the property is not overlooked. It is enclosed on all sides, but the hedge to one side by the house can be penetrated by any doggie guests who enjoy escaping. ie dogs can run free in the garden, but should not be left unattended. There is a patio near the house, and different areas of the garden are shaded or in the sun throughout the day. To the front of the property there is off road parking for three cars.
Swansea and the Gower have much to offer throughout the year and we are happy to offer short breaks for the majority of the year, so you don't need to wait for the summer! We are also happy to welcome multiple pets to the property at no additional charge.
Southern Wales region
The Gower Peninsula became the UK's first area of outstanding natural beauty in 1956 and the fantastic coastline and quiet rural interior remain a significant draw for the many visitors to the area. As the region becomes increasingly well known there are more opportunities to engage in outdoor activities and to learn a new skill during your stay. Most recently our heroic football team made it into the Premier League and has been the means of introducing a whole new swathe of visitors to the charms of Swansea Bay. We hope you will make the decision to choose Swansea as your destination for your holiday this year, and if we are able to welcome you to Gower Edge then we look forward to doing so.
The Principality of Wales is on the western side of the United Kingdom. Copper mining gave Swansea its wealth in Victorian times and coal from the South Wales valleys was used to extract the metal from its ore. This means there is a significant amount of industrial heritage in the area, but this vies for historical interest with castles, natural landmarks and poets and artists such as Dylan Thomas and Ceri Richards. Ceri Richards was born in Dunvant, and his grave can be found in the local chapel in Dunvant Square.
Swansea is known as the festival city, and the name is well deserved. with the Gower Folk Festival, Swansea Festival of Transport and Gower Cycling Festival, to name but a few. The area is renowned for its beautiful beaches, many of which allow dogs all year round, and ready access to the motorway means that you can explore the local area further as well. See our website for further ideas.

Many thanks for your positive review. We are glad to hear that you had a great holiday, and enjoyed staying at the property. I think you may be the first to have taken advantage of the flight over the Gower, I bet it was breath taking! We think we are very lucky with our position between Swansea and the Gower, offering the best benefits of both, and we are pleased that you agree.

"Spacious accomodation with a lovely secluded garden"
This house exceded our expectations with the ammount of space it had for everyone to spread out. The thoughtful provision of so many toys and games and DVDs to occcupy everyone was an unexpected bonus. There is understandably a little wear and tear on some furnishings etc, but I found that made us more relaxed with our family. There was an ample supply of crockery and cutlery etc. My daughter could have done with a larger stainless steel cooking pot, as the largest pan was aluminium which we don't use.
Centrally located for Swansea, Mumbles and Gower, a Sat Nav -or a good map reader- is useful to find your way to those glorious Gower beaches.
Thank you for your positive comments, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay so much. We love self catering holidays ourselves, and so have tried to provide the items we would hope to find when we go away. Hopefully see you again soon, we'll try to have your cooking pot in place by then!
