Description and Location
This 3-bedroom bungalow is situated in Southgate/Pennard on the fringes of Pennard Golf Club and just 5 minutes' walk from the cliff tops overlooking the magnificent Three Cliffs Bay.
Built in the 1950s it has been modernised throughout to offer practical family accommodation that sleeps 5 with the added bonus of parking for 2 cars and a pretty enclosed garden.
James Grove Cottage is perfectly placed for exploring this part of Gower on foot with so many facilities and natural wonders close by. There are pubs, shops and cafes in Southgate which has a friendly village feel.
From the cottage a footpath leads to Pobbles beach and Three Cliffs Bay where at low tide, you can walk to the huge expanse of sand that is Oxwich Bay. Head across the golf course to the ancient ruins of Pennard Castle where the views across Parkmill Valley and towards Three Cliffs are quite simply outstanding.
By dropping down into the woods of Parkmill, this delightful dog-walking route will take you to a hamlet complete with shops, a cafe and the Gower Heritage Centre, a popular tourist attraction. Alongside there's an ancient burial chamber at Parc Le Breos and an outdoor activity and pony trekking centre.
The village of Mumbles is only a 10 minute drive bustling with shops, cafes and traditional seaside delights including crazy golf, a promenade and pier. Even Swansea city centre is within easy reach offering a faster, urban pace in contrast to the calm and tranquillity of Southgate.
