The Coachhouse, Gower
A truly magical location in the valley leading down to the beautiful secluded Pobbles Beach, which is joined at low tide to Three Cliffs Bay (favoured by the singing star Katherine Jenkins). This is the coachhouse to a house set on the edge of the community of Southgate and only 200 meters from Pennard Golf Club clubhouse. Don't look for it on Google Street View as there is a private driveway leading to the property. So everything is there for a magical holiday, practically on the Gower costal path but near to the amenities of the village of Southgate with it's shop, two cafes and social club which is open to the general public. You're in the countryside but the magic of Gower means you are still walking distance to get those forgotten items. Peace and quiet, golf, beautiful walks and beaches make this a perfect place to stay.
About this property:
The Coachhouse has access onto the path to Pobbles Bay with plenty of parking in the private driveway. The car will probably remain there as this part of the coastline has to be explored on foot. You will not be bothered by passing cars just by the sound of the sea and the birds. Once you've visited you'll be spellbound by the location.
Swansea City Centre and the Maritime Quarter are only 8 miles away and Mumbles a mere 10 minutes by car.
The property itself has recently been completely refurbished to take maximum advantage of the wonderful views. It has been designed with the spacious sleeping quarters on the ground floor, two double and two single bedrooms and a utility room. Whilst upstairs there is an open plan living, kitchen, dining area with a small balcony facing the sea and a much larger roof terrace overlooking the sea, golf course and woods. The large roof terrace is ideal for dining outside and enjoying the view of the countryside. Entrance to the property is through a hallway and there are stairs up to the living area which has a newly fitted kitchen at one end and a comfortable sitting area at the other. The vaulted ceiling has windows making the space bright and airy.
Downstairs is larger and accommodates four bedrooms, two on either side of the hallway. On each side there is a double and a single bedroom with a Jack and Jill bathroom in between. Each bathroom has a bath and separate shower plus handbasin and WC. One of the bathrooms has a jacuzzi bath. Both single bedrooms have pull out beds so can accommodate additional guests by prior arrangement and an additional charge. The larger of the two double rooms has patio doors leading to the courtyard garden. On the ground floor there is also a utility room for all those sandy towels and walking boots.
We highly recommend this property, you will have a wonderful holiday and even your pet is welcome. The location is superb.
Pets are welcome at the property by prior arrangement for an additional charge of £25 per pet.

If you’re thinking of taking a holiday or short break in Wales, it would be hard to resist booking a getaway on the Gower Peninsula. From Mumbles to Penclawdd, it’s easy to find a property suitable for all party members to enjoy!
When looking at the map of the Gower Peninsular, Mumbles to Caswell seems like a long trip away, however the Coastal path can take you on a breath-taking walk, with café’s and benches along the way for those much needed rests and coffees. In Caswell, you’ll be greeted by the rippling waves on Caswell Bay used by paddlers and surfers alike, you can even book surfing lessons while on your holiday here.
If you’re looking for a village, away from the hustle and bustle of Mumbles but still in comfortable walking distance to Caswell Bay, Bishopston has all you need for a family holiday or a friendly gathering, with schools, pubs/gastro restaurants, shops and a park. Bishopston even has a hidden gem in the form of a secluded beach called Pwll Du which is accessed through an off road track.
From Bishopston, heading West of the Gower you will come across Pennard, Southgate and Parkmill. These sweet villages bring you to the properties situated closest to Three Cliffs Bay, a popularly photographed, iconic beach – well worth the visit, as seen on many brochures and posters for the Gower Peninsular. Roughly a mile further down the Gower Peninsular lie fresh water rivers, grassy landscapes and ‘pick your own’ fruit and veg farm’s and cafés belonging to the villages of Penmaen and Nicholaston. Here you can enjoy isolated walks and despite the country appearance you’re still never too far from the beaches Three Cliffs, Tor Bay, Nicholaston Burrows and Oxwich.
With sand dunes, water sports and even a leisure park, Oxwich Bay can provide the perfect base for beach a getaway. With the Oxwich Bay Hotel providing meals, drinks and snacks, there is no need to stray too far from the beach on a sunny day. Not far from this busy beach is the most South point of Gower and a quaint village called Port Eynon. Home to many campsites and caravan parks with the beaches of Port Eynon and Horton boasting the coast line, the village accommodates for friends and families with fish and chip shops, pubs and restaurants just minutes from the sandy beaches.
To the centre of the Gower lie The villages of Reynoldston and Knelston. Most visited for the King Arthur Hotel, serving gastro pub food and drinks which can be enjoyed in front of a log burning fire. The landscapes provide great surroundings for long walks and the beaches of Rhossili, Port Eynon and Llangennith are a short drive away.
When on the Gower Peninsular, most would argue that this trip would not be complete without visit to Rhossili Bay. Winning awards for it’s Natural Outstanding Beauty this ‘Epic’ dog friendly beach is home of the Worms Head. Rhossili Bay is notorious for being in the UK’s top beaches, as voted by Trip Advisors visitors – even more boastful; the beach was voted as Wales’ Best Beach 2017. From awards to spectacular views and walks, Rhossili is a must visit where surfers can enjoy the Atlantic swell, giving the rest of us stunning views. All of which can be seen from the comfort of the benches from the public houses near by – keep an eye out for those seals and dolphins too!
If water sports is what you are looking for, you can’t look too far from Llangennith in the North West of Gower, included in most ‘top 10 surfing beaches’. Popular to campers and visitors from all around the world the area welcomes surfers and sightseers alike. With the Kings Head Inn at the heart of Llangennith, a lovely pet friendly place to rest after those long walks.
The final stretch of the Gower Peninsular leads to Crofy and Penclawdd, where the lovely panoramic views of the River Loughor set the scene for the gorgeous sun sets. Take walks along the Burry Estuary, see where the salt marsh lambs breed and where fresh cockles are picked for the local produce stores and Swansea Market.
