The large kitchen spans the width of the house and incorporates a breakfast bar. There is an electric oven, gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, fridge/freezer and plenty of storage in white traditional cupboards. The original Victorian range serves as a quirky period design feature.

Mumbles is the first pretty fishing village one meets when venturing away from Swansea towards the world acclaimed area of outstanding beauty known as the Gower. It is a great place to set up your base either to explore the myriad activities in, around and along the coastline or to settle and just luxuriate in the local resources that make Mumbles a great destination in its own right.
The house was newly refurbished, clean, spacious, and yet warm and cozy. We enjoyed the historic elements of the home, tasteful decor, and the wood burning stove in the lounge. The kitchen had everything required to do our own cooking. We also appreciated having a washing machine to do our own laundry. Bron and Ges, owners of the home, are lovely. Mrs L, USA, Dec 2016
