2A Redcliffe Caswell Bay
About the home
2A Redcliffe is a one bedroom self-catering apartment in a unique situation overlooking a stunning beach. The area is totally unspoilt and the air unpolluted. Open the apartment's window to hear the waves breaking on the shore. Look out at the sea, sand, stunning skies, sea birds and very likely surfers with the occasional ship passing by.
This apartment has recently under gone a complete refurbishment to a very high standard. It is both a relaxing and a wonderful place to spend time. Tastefully decorated throughout making the accommodation warm and friendly - a home from home.
New radiators have just been installed in each room - you set to the temperature that suits you.
The spacious lounge with its huge picture window faces the sea taking full advantage of its stunning location overlooking Caswell Bay which is just a few seconds away! With its ever changing views, many have commented that they are happy to just sit and look out to sea as they find the view so relaxing.

Great Holiday ! Hope to come back soon!! Thank you. 16th - 23rd April 2011
The flat is superb! We loved the huge windows (that we have seen incredible sunny skies through every day!!) Beds are great and the settees comfy. We love the recliner! Best thing - hearing the sound of the waves as you fall asleep at night. Thank you. 23rd April - 1st May 2011
Our return visit did not fail to live up to expectations. Our requirements this year were to have plenty of R & R before our baby arrives in 7 weeks time. We are leaving feeling wonderfully rested and our souls lifted by the constant, amazing view from the window. Hoping to bring our new little person to visit next year! 21st - 28th May
Had a wonderful time here in Caswell. The apartment was beautiful and the views just amazing! Your attention to detail was much appreciated. 2nd - 8th July 2011
Lovely two weeks again. Lots of other family members coming to visit for odd days. Weather has been kind, going home relaxed and tanned to start again. Lots of walks, food and wine!! Children all loved the seaside. This is what Summer should be. Thank you for the opportunity to stay. 20th Aug - 3rd Sept 2011
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 3A - only wish we could have stayed longer! The location is superb - sitting and watching the beach from the gorgeous big windows has been a real treat - and the flat is very comfortable and well equipped! It was also lovely to be able to meet Mr and Mrs Williams. We hope to be back! xx 20th Sept - 20th Sept
Have been staying in the chalet park every year in Caswell since I was born - boy am I glad they are closed or my husband and I would never have found this wonderful flat. So comfortable & wonderful.We will be coming to you year after year". 5th - 12th Dec 2010
We had a lovely 2 weeks at 3A and will definitely be back. What a spectacular view of the beautiful, ever changing Caswell Bay. Thank you for the nicely decorated home to spend our family Christmas in. We will definitely be back in 2010.
This has been a very special holiday for us. Our first "family" holiday with our 7 mths son. Having this place has been perfect, allowing us to go and explore the coastline for a few hours, relaxed in the knowledge we were never far from base and that stunning beach on our door step. It has helped having accommodation that is so baby friendly. The boaster seat and travel cot were great. Overall it is these extra touches that make the accommodation even more memorable. Your customer service has been great and things such as detailed information files have been brilliant. We love the flat and have imagined bringing our son here for many years to come. 15th - 22nd May 2010
From the minute in we walked I knew I had made the right decision for our family break! The view made feeding my 2 mth old son at at 5am a joy! We will def be back! 6th - 9th May 2010
Wow! What a week! Fantastic views, fantastic and spacious accommodation. Planning to return very soon. 31st July - 7th Aug 2010
We've had a fantastic two days. Incredible location, wonderfully comfortable apartment, and such lovely, welcoming hosts. We don't want to leave and are already wondering what availabIlity is like later in the year so that we can come back for longer. Fantastic! Thank you so much! April 4 - 6 2010
Such a fantastic location! Caswell will never leave us. We hope to be back soon. Thanks for everything March 2010
A great week's holiday. Weather fantastic Caswell bay a dream, endless amusement watching surfers and canoe'ists, the moonlight over the water is like a perfect painting, The flat is 5 star. Hope to come back soon. Thanks. 22nd April - 29th April

The South Wales / Swansea/Bridgend/Neath 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!
The Gower / Caswell Bay area
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.

We really enjoyed our first visit to Caswell Bay and couldn't have picked better accommodation. From the genuinely warm welcome from Hugh and Auriol to the stunning panoramic views of the bay from the apartment window. The apartment was very contemporary, warm and well equipped, from the binoculars for catching passing boats or for people watching to the interesting reading material or the plethora of games for the children. We thoroughly recommend this little gem of an apartment which we believe is an ideal bolt-hole for exploring the beautiful Gower peninsular with direct access to the coastal paths in either direction. We are already planning a return visit.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. It is important to us that you do so. We love the location - and believe it is this, that makes it so special. It's pleasing to hear that you found the apartment warm and comfortable. Hopefully when you return you will find other parts of the Gower you haven't visited - there is certainly much to see!

Redcliffe apartment 2A
This holiday was our first in self-catering accommodation in Britain for almost thirty years. My, how things have changed. Externally Redcliffe is very unprepossessing,... more
We loved your comment "so good we had to take a peek in the night to ensure it was still there! If I wake in the night I am drawn to the window - to sit and listen to the "quiet" sound... more

My wife and I travel frequently and we think the 2A Redcliff apartment is one of the nicest we have ever stayed at.
Apartment - We stayed in 2A, which has a modern but very comfortable decor. Furnishings and appliances are of excellent quality. Layout is very good, and can accomodate three comfortably. The photos on the website accurately reflect the apartment, as well as the nearly beaches and hikes.
View - Spectacular view over Caswell Bay and its beach. It is uplifting to see the beach, ocean and sky out of the very large living room windows.
Owners - Auriol and Hugh (owners of 2A and 3A) are lovely people who renovated the apartments and treat the apartments and, most importantly, their guests with great care.
Location - You are literally above Caswell beach and bay, with hikes up the hills on either end of the beach. Short drive to other spectacular beaches and hikes. Near the town of Mumbles, a very cute, small village for shopping and restaurants. The entire surrounding area is extremely pleasant and picturesque.
Recommendations - Great for a couple escaping the city and equally wonderful for families with children.
Pricing - We felt that the apartment was great and is very fairly priced. We actually felt it was underpriced, but the owners are more interested in quality tenants and are not looking to extract the maximum from those who visit.
Overall - We highly recommend this apartment. If questions, you can contact the owners. My wife and I, who never met the owners before our visit, were so impressed by them and the apartment that we would be pleased to answer any questions about our visit. You can write to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best regards, John & Victoria
We always appreciate the time taken by our guests "putting pen to paper" to write reviews for us. Your coming all the way from America gave us much pleasure in introducing you to an area of Wales which is dear to our hearts. From those lovely photos you shared with us (please click to view) you visited many of the places recommended. There's so much more to see! We welcome you back any time to enjoy more of the delights of the Gower!
