If there’s one word that sums up the holiday experience you can expect in Wales, then that’s the Welsh word croeso. It means welcome. And at Home from Home we really mean it. Our friendly and professional customer service team is committed to looking after you from your initial contact with us to the time you go home. That’s why so many of our customers come back time and time again.

We’re also proud of the Welsh language which you might hear spoken here in Mumbles, Gower and the South Wales area. Wales in a truly bilingual country and over 600,000 people in Wales speak Welsh and it’s likely to rise to 1 million by 2050.

We’ve selected just a few from our extensive portfolio to give you a taste (blas) of the language and tempt you with spectacular locations and unparalleled views in the lovely seaside resort and village of Mumbles, and the spectacular Gower peninsula.
