Description and Location
The Little Forge is set within an old limestone quarry, previously located within the old Kilvrough Estate. The cottage is built within the grounds of the former village forge, and nestles into the cliff face of a limestone quarry besides the leafy canopy of the Gower Ash woodlands nature reserve Kilvrough Woods.To the rear of the cottage is a flight of steps leading up to the woodland of Kilvrough Woods, managed by the National Trust.
The woodland is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and is a haven for plants and wildlife alike. A stroll through the woods will bring you close to goldfinches, bullfinches, long-tailed tits and buzzards, amongst others, all accompanied by the uplifting song of the wrens. The ash and beech trees of the woods provide perfect cover for a carpet of wood anemones, ramsons (wild garlic) and bluebells in the spring.
Over the road is the Gower Inn public house. It serves food from 12.00 until 9.00pm and has a great external beer garden. The traditional pub fayre menu is ideal for a quick easy option for lunch or tea and we'd encourage you to try their Gower Gold local brewed ale.
Patio windows lead directly into the living room which has a narrow stairwell leading up to the mezzanine bedroom (access to one side of the bed only).
The main living area has a range of fitted units along one wall with electric cooker, fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher and microwave. There is also a utility cupboard which has a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Furnishings include a 3-seat sofa, a dining table with 4 chairs, a wall mounted TV, DVD and CD players, iPod Dock and occasional furniture.
The modern shower room is off the main living room and has a large shower cubicle, WC and compact wash hand basin.
