This cottage is located in a lovely position with easy access to the beach and coastal walks. It is one of the best equipped cottages I have stayed in (and we go self-catering often). The hosts were very friendly. basic items including bread, milk, tea, coffee, jam, margarine and marmalade were all provided. This is really unusual and a lovely touch.
We only stayed for two nights on a short break but were very happy with our choice. Our hosts Alan and Claire were lovely, and very generous providing Tea, Coffee, Cereal etc and many extra touches including lovely home made Welsh cake. The apartment is very spacious and very well appointed. The location is perfect, very close to the beautiful Oxwich beach. We wished we could've stayed longer and would highly recommend to anyone considering visiting the beautiful Gower Peninsular.
Amazing accommodation, Alan & Claire are wonderful friendly hosts, apartment is spacious and set up child friendly which was perfect for our 1 year old, added extras with the supplies they had for us which was not expected, in a nutshell it’s perfect and I would highly recommend Woodlands to anyone looking for the perfect home from home quiet relaxing weekend or even weekly break away right by the beautiful beach of Oxwich Bay, we will most definitely return next year for another break.
As soon as we arrived we were made to feel very much at home by Alan and Claire, being greeted with great warmth and hospitality, homemade bread and a fully stocked fridge. The apartment was bigger than we expected, light and airy, and we enjoyed some great nights' sleep while we were there.
The bathroom was lovely and clean and the shower is in super working order, which came in handy for washing sand off! The beach is practically on the doorstep, as are interesting walks through woodland and off-the-beaten tracks, right up onto the clifftops themselves above the sea.
We would highly recommend staying at this lovely seaside getaway to all family and friends who are thinking of a break without too many crowds and all the natural beauty and amenities that one could hope for. Thanks again Alan and Claire, we hope to see you again soon!
We were delighted to find the location was only five minutes walk from the magnificent Oxwich beach which is long and sandy with good amenities. Claire and Alan were very friendly providing everything we needed in excellent working order. Very convenient for exploring the rest of the Gower too.
A very pleasant stay in Oxwich, the flat is well located with off road parking set in a quiet position. . The flat has a large living space, small bedroom with a very comfortable super king sized bed. Shower/toilet room is quite small but adequate. The owners were very helpful and attentive..
This is a small but spacious one bedroom apartment above the double garage of the owners home with a private entrance and a private raised deck at the rear. There is off road private parking the the front of the property. Communication with the owners was excellent and access to the property was clear and hassle free. We stayed for a wedding at the Oxwich Bay Hotel and it was a two minute level walk from the property, handy to nip back to during the reception. The property was clean and well equipped for our needs, the owners leave cereals, milk, juice, tea, coffee, jams, bread and a home baked treat. There’s a Sainsbury’s in Swansea on the route in, about 25 minutes from the property to stock up on any other essentials. Claire very kindly left special extras which were way above our expectations and gratefully received, a lovely and thoughtful gesture. The bathroom is compact but functional, lots of hot water, towels were fresh and fluffy, bed was comfy, lovely fresh linens, there was a full length mirror in the bedroom, dressing table and plenty of well placed sockets. We experienced some issues connecting to the WiFi. The curtains in the main bedroom allow a lot of early morning light through so if you’re a light sleeper you may want to take a sleep mask. Spacious and bright lounge area with large sofa, dining area and ample sized, well equipped kitchen area. We were lucky with exceptional weather while we were there and the deck was perfect for breakfast, a small table and 4 chairs are provided, it’s private and very peaceful. Alan popped up to meet us during our stay and gave us information about the local area.
I would recommend this place to anyone attending the wedding venue, the location is excellent and the property provides more space than a hotel room with the added benefit of private outdoor space. Also would be a perfect base for walkers wishing to exploring this beautiful coast. Would have like to have stayed a little longer.
Couldn’t fault our stay.
