“Perfect for the first " dad " holiday with my kids”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Perfect size place fin my dad week away with the children. Love the gower and dispute not a great week of weather. The beaches and Swansea kept my 8 year old twins happy. My little girl in particular loved the horses nearby.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Ruth gave us a very warm welcome on arrival, also lots of helpful information on things to do and see in the area. Accommodation was spotlessly clean with a fully equipped kitchen perfect for for self catering. Views are stunning overlooking the paddocks would recommend to anyone who wants a quiet relaxing break.

“Lovely cottage with great frmland view”

person found this review helpful

We spent four nights in Ivy Cottage. It is well situated on the edge of farmland with a great view across fields. The cottage is well appointed with all the facilities for a four night break. The owners live close at hand and are very friendly and helpful. We are likely to book in future when we visit the Gower again.

“Fantastic getaway!”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Myself, my husband and three year old son stayed at this cottage over the August bank holiday weekend.
It was absolutely fantastic. The owners were so friendly and nice. They live a few doors down and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage itself is bright, spotlessly clean and has everything you could need for a weekend away. All mod cons, including a dishwasher so you don't even need to wash up!
The views were amazing from the cottage and it was everything we wished for and more. We will definitely be revisiting and thank you so much for letting us stay, we all had a great time.

“Breath-taking, just perfect.”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My mum & I suprised my Nan with a trip to this beautiful little cottage. From Trip Advisor it already looked amazing, and just what we needed. But there is nothing like opening the door and seeing the view out of the front room window. When you come from a busy London area, this suprisingly spacious cottage makes everything just pause and slow down. It was in a perfect location to everywhere, the beach was a 15 min drive, other towns and seaside locations were all so local, and the M4 not too far for further trips! Ruth was brilliant, we saw her once on arrival but that was it, she very much kept herself to herself! A lovely bottle of wine was waiting in the fridge for us and everything else we could possibly need! Honestly a superb stay!!!!!

“A great weekend in a lovely little cottage”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed in Ivy cottage when visiting some friends in Swansea for a weekend. It's handily located for both getting into Swansea and out onto the Gower. Ivy was the perfect size for me, my wife and toddler daughter and 2 friends. The living area was nice and large and the kitchen had everything we needed. The cottage was handily child-proofed with a stairgate so our daughter could toddle freely! We'll definitely be back when we next need somewhere to stay in the area.
