For many years the home of our much loved Welsh Cob, Cathy, The Stable was renovated some five years ago after a very aged Cathy joined the riders in the sky.

The Stable has a spectacular six foot bed (or twin 3 foot beds if preferred) and an en-suite bathroom. A lounge with stone fireplace, wood floors and very comfortable furnishings, a fully fitted kitchen and dining area completes the package.

The Stable has a spacious feel and has been adapted to allow a wheelchair user to enjoy their holiday, without any compromise on the overall aesthetic beauty of the cottage.

Beamed high ceilings, stone walls, TV, video, CD player and all the comforts of home in your 5 star cottage makes this a holiday to remember.

The South Wales region

Forty years ago, Gower peninsular, Swansea County, became the U.K.'s first designated "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty". From enchanting rugged countryside to historic woodlands, quaint thatched cottages to mysterious castles; wild ponies roam here across Europe's most spectacular seascape scenery. Gower is a dozen golden bays, a land of legends and prehistoric secrets swept over by ancient sands. Gower visibly reflects a broad timeline from pre-history to a sedate rural lifestyle long forgotten elsewhere. At just nineteen miles wide, the peninsular represents the epitome of ancient Celtic beauty and a microcosm of old-world charm - Gower is the very pride of Wales ... Gower is a living Welsh poem.

Some of the oldest human remains have been discovered on Gower; a testimony to the people who have lived on this dramatic, gold soaked coastline for many thousands of years. Some villages are buried beneath the sands, but other monuments stand above land as a reminder of the civilisations which existed long before time froze over Gower.

Reaching the peninsular is a seamless journey travelling west from Swansea Bay for just a mile or two. Many people like to walk the coastal path from Swansea Maritime Quarter which ensures you never lose sight of the angry sea crashing on the rocks below. In no time you'll reach the peninsular's first dazzling golden bay, or a cosy Gower village pub ... your sensations will start tell you that you've walked into a dream.

Gower

Up until the end of the 19th century, Penclawdd was a flourishing sea port, with several coal mines, and tinplate, copper and brass works. It was a bustling commercial centre for much of North Gower. There was a time, almost within living memory, when it had a railway station, a forge, twenty grocers, three butchers, three drapers and four fish and chip shops; for happy hours, there were eleven pubs and a cinema, and for holy hours, three chapels and a church.

But above all else, Penclawdd was synonymous with cockles and cockling, and this is the only one of the old industries to survive. The famous low-tide cockle beds on the Burry Estuary sands have always produced a good quality harvest. During the Industrial Revolution, women whose husbands were unfit for work in the coalmines turned to cockle gathering as a lifeline, and right up to the 1970s, women were the main gatherers. Working with donkeys, hand rakes and riddles (coarse sieves), the women were tough and resilient, famed for their ability to withstand all weather conditions on the estuary.

Today, with demand ever increasing, the industry is run by men with tractors and four-wheel drives, but they still gather the cockles with the traditional hand tools. The cockles are processed in local factories, carefully prepared and heat-treated for export nationwide. Look out for the cockle stalls in Swansea Market, and for establishments, such as the Kings Head Hotel at Llangennith, which serve a traditional Welsh breakfast featuring cockles, bacon and laverbread (laver seaweed washed, dipped in oatmeal and fried in bacon fat).

Penclawdd and Crofty both have high locations and enjoy spectacular views over the Loughor estuary and the surrounding countryside. Worth visiting in Crofty is the graveyard of the ruined Hermon Chapel, for its profound atmosphere and marvellous views(see below). Originally painted white, the chapel, built in 1807, was an important landmark for ships navigating the estuary.
