Penclawdd

The Gower Peninsula is both beautiful and unspoilt, there are many historic features located over an area that measures just sixteen miles by seven miles wide. Notably, Gower was one of the first places designated 'An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' under the Act of 1949.

The beautiful coastline and countryside of the Gower peninsula offers a number of designated pathways for both the casual stroller and experienced rambler. It is now possible to walk all the way around Gower via the coastal path.
For those who like to take things easy, why not take a wander along the promenade of Swansea Bay, which runs all the way from Mumbles Head to Swansea Marina (approx. 5 miles).

The area is also popular for outdoor pursuits and we'll send you a list of local things including: surfing, sailing, horse riding, indoor and outdoor climbing, cycling, scuba diving, boat trips, golf.

PENCLAWDD

Up until the end of the 19th century Penclawdd was a thriving sea port. The village was renowned for coal mining and its extensive tinplate, copper and brass works. There was a time when Penclawdd had a forge, twenty grocers, three butchers, three drapers, four fish and chip shops, eleven pubs, a cinema, the still remaining three chapels and a church and a busy railway station. The original railway platform still remains today. Composer Karl Jenkins was born and raised in Penclawdd.

Penclawdd is most famous for its local cockle industry which goes back for many years to Roman times. This is one of the only industries to survive. These cockles are collected from the extensive sandy flats in the Burry Estuary and the cockles harvested there are sold worldwide. Samples of these famous cockles can be purchased at the stalls in Swansea Market and locally in the village itself. Up until the 1970s the cockles were gathered by women using hand-rakes and riddles (coarse sieves) with the help of donkey carts, often braving very hard conditions. Now they are harvested mostly by men, still by hand but using tractors or Land Rovers. The original small, family-owned factories in Penclawdd have been demolished and cockles are now processed in two large, modern factories in the nearby village of Crofty; the product is largely exported to continental Europe.

Today Penclawdd is a medium sized village on Gower with a post-office, doctors, dentist, hairdresser, small supermarket, butchers and pharmacy, Some great cafe's aswell as a good fish and chip shop on the sea front and a Local pub all within easy walking distance of Lyndon cottage.

Penclawdd and Crofty both have high locations and enjoy spectacular views over the Loughor estuary and the surrounding countryside. Worth visiting is the graveyard of the ruined Hermon Chapel, for its profound atmosphere and marvellous views. Originally painted white, the chapel, built in 1807, was an important landmark for ships navigating the estuary.
Carry on from here and take a walk along the marsh roads out of Crofty and onto Llanrhidian (tides allowing) where you'll be sure to find some Gower gold....

“A perfect cottage in a perfect location”

Reviewed 12 Nov 2016

We have just got back from a one week stay at Lyndon Cottage. It is a lovely cottage, beautifully decorated, very comfortable and very well equipped - a real home from home. Nice touches like flowers, a welcome card and essentials like tea, coffee, milk, bread and the bonus of welsh cakes, make you feel very welcome. Plenty of information provided regarding the running of the cottage, so we didn't encounter any problems. The cottage is located in a great position at the end of the village and overlooking the estuary with fantastic views from the rear bedroom. It has off street parking. It is a perfect base for exploring the Gower peninsula, Carmarthenshire and the Brecon Beacons National Park. The village of Penclawdd has plenty of amenities - shops, pubs, takeaways, etc. so is very convenient.

"Thanks for the review, we re really pleased you had a good holiday and that Lyndon Cottage gave you everything you needed, and that the location was good for exploring West Wales. Hopefully we will welcome you back some day."

“Everything first class”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

Lyndon cottage has everything. Great location superb estuary views from balcony, lovely fittings and furnishings, kitchen better than mine at home, and the best bath mat I have ever set foot on! The owners are delightful, so welcoming and helpful. We greatly enjoyed our stay and recommend Lyndon cottage without reserve. Excellent.

“Home from home on Gower”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2016

Just returned from our two week stay in Lyndon cottage. The cottage has everything you need and if it doesn't the owners are only too pleased to help out. The tumble drier had developed a problem and Marilyn kindly offered to take any wet washing we had for drying. Fortunately the weather was good and we were able to line dry everything. Very clean and comfortable. The views from the main bedroom overlooking the estuary are spectacular! Very good location for exploring the area. Fish n chip shop serves delicious cod and the portions are huge! Paprika Indian takeaway in the village also very good. All in all a lovely place to stay. The only very minor negative for us was the busy road to the front of the cottage. We aren't used to living with traffic noise so probably more noticeable to us. It wouldn't prevent us from returning though. Thank you to the Lyndon cottage team for our welcome. You are lucky living in such a beautiful area of Wales.

Thanks for the review, we re really pleased you had a good holiday and that Lyndon Cottage gave you everything you needed Hopefully we will welcome you back some day.
