We stayed with our 2 year old granddaughter. The cottage was surprisingly spacious, was very well equipped and has lovely views. Thanks to Ruth for making us so welcome.

“Ivy Cottage is fantastic”
Reviewed 13 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This was our 5th stay in Ivy Cottage which tells you how much we like it. The location is great and the Cottage itself is lovely and a really nice place to be. We mainly go to the Gower to surf but we also do some cycling and our friends who live in Mumbles do a lot of birding. The area has lots to offer and the people are very friendly.
Ruth and Ian are great hosts and very helpful. I cannot recommend Ivy Cottage highly enough.

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.
