“Really lovely place to stay and well thought out rental. Beautiful beach on your doorstep and all you need close by.”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Mumbles is the perfect holiday spot and The Garden Flat is a really lovely place to stay. Set in a peaceful road, it is spacious with nice modern decor, clean and light, with a nice 'homely' feel to it and all the amenities you need-fridge, freezer, gas cooker and hob, microwave, dishwasher, TV and DVD. It also has a bath with separate shower and a good internet connection. Nice open plan kitchen and lounge area, including dining table. The owners have been very thoughtful and provided all you need, even down to a torch if you want to take a night time stroll along the bay! The view from your front door (shown in picture) is gorgeous-you can see and smell the sea and instantly feel relaxed! You can lounge on reclining chairs on the patio area and admire the lovely sea view!
Langland Bay is a 2 minute walk from the flat and it's a gorgeous sandy beach and beautiful views. It is great for kids and was perfect for us with a 21 month old toddler. There's a little cafe and as you walk around the bay there is a very nice seaview restaurant (Langland's Brasserie) which is great for all meals of the day. You can stroll round the coastline taking in the beautiful scenery and even walk to other beaches such as Caswell Bay (half hour on foot or 10 minute drive or catch the bus from bus stop 5 minute walk from flat).
Mumbles town centre is a 15 minute walk away and offers local supermarket options as well as some nice independent shops. I recommend a visit to Joe's ice-cream parlour, even when the sun isn't shining! There's always a nice seaside holiday feel to the mumbles, even on a grey day! There's also a variety of restaurants and pubs and I highly recommend 'The Kitchen Table' -a lovely local restaurant serving a range of delicious homemade food, including good veggie options. All in all Mumbles is a great place to have a brilliant holiday and I highly recommend The Garden Flat to stay in.

Liked best: The location of the flat being so close to the beach-we could just pop back when we needed to hassle free. It was also very homely.
Liked least: Having to leave to come home!! Only thing was not being able to fill the dishwasher quickly enough as only 2 of us and a little one!

What a lovely review, thankyou so much, it sounds like you had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the flat and the local area. We really appreciate you noticed all the little touches, we like to make it a comfy, easy place to stay and yes, a torch is necessary for an evening walk as we are lucky that the coastal path is not flooded with street light! Thanks again.

“Beautiful views and perfect location!”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The flat is located in a brilliant location, just 2 minutes walk from Langland beach and 10 minutes walk to Mumbles and it's lovely shops, cafes and restaurants. The view of the sea from the patio is beautiful and it was lovely to sit out on the patio at any time of day.

The flat is very well equipped and had everything we needed, well equipped kitchen, comfy king size bed and comfy sun loungers. The owners are very friendly and helpful and responded to our emails promptly prior to booking. The flat was spotless too and we found Welsh cakes and a bottle of wine on arrival too.

The surrounding Gower is stunning with plenty to do- lots of lovely beaches, walks along the coast path, a choice of water sports and nice boutiques in Mumbles.

We didn't want to leave at the end of the week and would definitely go back.
