In a nutshell.
Little Sea Sparkle is a deceptively large 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Mumbles, occupying the ground floor of a grand Victorian house, overlooking the sea and is just perfect for couples wishing to relax and take time away together. It has a lovely tiered garden with wide stretching views over the bay and to the valleys beyond and a charming walled courtyard where you can relax and dine alfresco.

Sitting in a slightly elevated position, a mere 300 yard hop skip and a jump and you're strolling the promenade. To the left lies the city of Swansea, to the right continues the...

About the neighbourhood
You can, if you choose, park up for the whole of your stay, there is plenty to see and do. Wander the narrow, higgledy piggledy streets of Mumbles, lined with prettily painted fisherman's cottages, to the chic, yet cosy amenities of Mumbles village. Maybe pack up a picnic and a bottle of wine and take a stroll to the beach on a lazy summer day - Hire bikes and cycle along the promenade to Swansea and the marina - Catch a rugby match with the Ospreys at the Liberty stadium - Or maybe walk the cliffs to Langland and Caswell bays, stop for a long lunch and watch the surfers ride the waves. Possibly a visit to the pier and new lifeboat station - Explore Oystermouth castle - Enjoy a peaceful afternoon fishing, the list goes on and on.
Getting around
Although a car is not necessary, as there are very good bus links to Swansea, Mumbles and Gower, we do however, recommend it.
We are blessed with too many to mention breathtaking beaches, but some you might like to visit are Langland bay with its colourful beach huts, the dramatic Three cliffs, Oxwich bay and of course Rhossili beach, which has deservedly so, been named the best beach in the UK and the ninth most amazing beach in the world (Daily Mail/travel - Rhosilli).
Car - Bus - Train
If you choose to see more of this wonderful part of Wales, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire lie to the west and the vibrant city of Cardiff to the east, while the rugged beauty of the Brecon Beacons await you in Mid Wales.
Car not needed
