“Excellent accommodation - highly recommended, book it now!”
Reviewed 3 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

The dutch barn style mini-house has been refurbished to a very high standard, and has everything you could need. The location is a 10-12 min walk to Mumbles centre via picturesque Oystermouth Castle. My wife and I had a fabulous time here.

Owners/Hosts Chris and Sarah were perfectly accommodating.

On the bucket list for a return visit!

“A splendid cottage in a splendid location.”
Reviewed 6 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

My wife and I had never been to the Gower before, although we had previously had holidays in Mid and North Wales. You may (or may not) be interested to know that, as a young lad in 1949, and staying in Youth Hostels, I toured Wales on a cycle - but missed out on South Wales! There was no wife to navigate me then.
On this four night stay we relied on a car to get us to our start point, and we did our best to take advantage of the wonderful coastal walks that are available. The walks were memorable, the weather sunny and the accommodation first class.
Chris called in to make sure all was well (it was). A very enjoyable break.

Came to Mumbles for the triathalon and a short visit. Riversdale Cottage was perfect for our needs. Discreetly tucked away with ample parking and in excellent condition. Our host-Chris welcoming and helpful. Located a short walk from Mumbles centre and the seafront,..ideal as parking in town can be hard to find in busy periods,..ie a Triathalon ! Cottage perfectly located between the Gower and Swansea. Mumbles very pleasant and ideal for a relaxed break. No hesitation in recommending this Cottage in the land of the Dragon .

A well renovated cottage set in a beautiful location. Easy access to the local shops and lovely local walks to nearby beaches, local pier and along the cliffs. Easy driving distance to Swansea shops for a good shopping day out as well. Very friendly welcome and lots of helpful information within the cottage. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others.

A lovely clean, comfortable and well equiped compact cottage which is a perfect base to explore this wonderful part of the world. The owner, Chris, is very friendly and Riversdale Cottage is highly recommended.
