Description from owner
The Old Vicarage is prominently situated on a hill overlooking the wonderful Gower countryside. Quiet and peaceful yet within minutes of Gower's world class beaches and just 15 minutes from Mumbles village, famous for it's restaurants, bars and shops.
The Old Vicarage was completed in 1901 and has recently been completely refurbished to offer a full range of modern amenities within a beautifully decorated country house that will provide you with a lifetime of memories.
The house is perfect for families, extended families, groups of friends & wedding guests looking to enjoy first class accommodation. The library and east sitting room offers sanctuary to guests wishing to relax quietly in front of a roaring fire, whilst the family room and conservatory off the kitchen is the hub of the house. The heart of the house is undoubtedly the enormous family kitchen. The large oak central island allows guests to sit in the heart of the kitchen next to the range cooker. The conservatory, off the kitchen, houses a solid oak table with seating for 12 or more and a wood burning stove.
The renowned King Arthur country pub, serving excellent food & drink in a traditional country pub environment, is a stroll away.
Gower provides the opportunity for golf, watersports, horse riding, hiking, cycling or just relaxing and enjoying some of Europe's favourite beaches..

“The perfect place for my 50th birthday celebration!”
I'd almost given up trying to find the place I had imagined to celebrate my birthday with close family and friends. It needed to be flexible enough to sleep couples, singles and children, spacious enough so we wouldn't be on top of each other if the weather wasn't great, and have plenty to do nearby for all ages... And as I needed to ask my guests both to travel a long way and share the cost of rental with me, I wanted the house to have a special something that would make it all feel worthwhile. The Old Vicarage is all this and more! The house itself is light, spacious and very elegantly but extremely comfortably furnished and we all quickly felt at home. There are open rural views from just about every window. The garden is great, with lovely sitting out spaces and that all important expanse of grass for kids to race up and down - fantastic, especially for those of us from the big city. Within 10/15 minutes drive you're at amazing Rhossili, with its stunning views over miles of beach and out to Worm's Head; or head in the other direction to Parkmill where you can walk through leafy woodland down to perfect Three Cliffs Bay. We also went to Perriswood (even closer to the Vicarage) which needs a separate recommendation in itself. We had a fun archery session with helpful tuition for all ages, and then a fantastic time being introduced to their birds of prey, learning about them, holding them and watching them fly in front of the most stunning natural backdrop you're ever likely to see. Food-wise, the Vicarage has great kitchen space for self-catering. We'd also recommend the Bay Bistro at Rhossili, with fantastic views and lovely fresh food. Also the King Arthur pub at Reynoldston, a Gower institution in another wonderful setting. Ali and Mike were so helpful and flexible - a dream to deal with. And the weather was perfect! We are conjuring excuses to go back...
“Stunning House, Fantastic Location”
I brought a group of friends to the Old Vicarage for a long weekend. We've been taking similar holidays for about ten years and this is one of the best properties we've stayed in - extremely comfortable, very spacious and very pretty. The location is also excellent, right in the heart of the Gower, a short drive from Mumbles and close to beaches and activities. The owners were extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for us. I hope to come back soon, and would definitely recommend the house.
“The Gower Vicarage - can't wait to go back !”
The Old Vicarage was a perfect house to accommodate the 3 generations of our family that stayed for the week after Christmas and the 4 generations that brought in the New Year. The house was beautifully decorated, comfortable, cosy and with great facilities - The huge kitchen really was the heart of the house ! Despite having 4 teenagers and grandparents in our party there was plenty of room both inside and out for everyone to relax, watch TV and play games. The refectory table in the conservatory was big enough for us all to sit comfortably at meal times, enjoying the view. Nearby the beaches of Rhossili Bay and Port Eynon were perfect for winter walks. We even had a go at Archery at the falcon and archery centre 5 minutes down the road (recommended). The local information provided was also comprehensive and very useful. We have enjoyed the Gower in the summer and know how beautiful it is , so it was wonderful to experience it in Winter in such a lovely house surrounded by family. We had a couple of minor issues while we were at the house and Alison and Mike dealt with them very quickly despite it being Christmas week. They were also friendly and professional to deal with. In summary , lovely house and great location
