The cottage is Spotlessly clean and is a quaint without being too small. We stayed as two couples and there was plenty of room. The...

Upon arrival we were immediately greeted by Suzy, the owner. she couldn't be more helpful with local knowledge and milk in the fridge for a well needed cuppa. The cottage is clean and very well presented. Our party consisted of Four adults and Two dogs, so comfortably snug. A short downhill walk takes you to the Swansea bay promenade. There...

Additional amenities & feature info
If you are intending to stay at the Fisherman's Snug for a week, there are a few points that may interest you. <BR><BR>The bed in the master bedroom is particularly comfortable, and will afford you a particularly good night's sleep after a long day out of doors. Furthermore, on a clear night it is lovely to gaze at Oystermouth Castle which is floodlit from below. On a windy or stormy night you can hear the sound of the wind whistling through the rigging of the small boats on their moorings.<BR><BR>After a long day at the beach we find that the full length bath is a bonus for our little children. Similarly it is a nice tonic for sore muscles.<BR> <BR>My wife and I live 2 doors down the hill and are more than happy to help you enjoy your stay in M... more

How to get there

Railway: Swansea: 10.0 km
The Fisherman's Snug is very easy to get to from anywhere in the UK. You simply get on the M4 and exit on the Swansea flyover (Junction 42). You then simply follow this road for about 20 minutes through Swansea and on to Mumbles. Once you pass the shops in Mumbles in about 50 meters turn right at the Hancock Pub onto Western Lane . Village Lane is the 1st right only 50 meters up the hill. Take a hard left hand turn (with care) and the Fisherman's Snug is the 3rd blue cottage on the right.
