WELCOME

Welcome

CROESO/19 Welcome to our new-look brochure for 2019. It‘s a reflection of our pride in being Gower’s largest and most established holiday cottage agency and a signal of our confidence as we seek to expand our portfolio across Wales and beyond.

B

ut we’re not forgetting what we do best. And that’s showcasing our 250 very special hand-picked holiday cottages we have for rental in the Gower area, the UK’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Just 19 miles long and 70 square miles, this compact and unspoiled peninsula is packed with discoveries to delight and bring you back time and time again, whether for a short break or a longer holiday.

That’s why this year we’re celebrating the epic discoveries you can make in Mumbles, Gower and the surrounding areas through a series of specially commissioned features which focus on locals who live in, and love the area as much as we do. They share their stories (and sometimes their secrets) and give insider viewpoints and information on what to do when visiting this spectacular peninsula.

Unearth the true taste of Gower in our quality restaurants and artisan food and beverage producers. Discover our vibrant culture and heritage and why so many artists are inspired by the local landscape. And we haven’t forgotten about your four-legged friends either and have a wide selection of pet-friendly pads and places to roam where your animals can discover a sense of freedom too.

It comes as no surprise to us that following on from Year of the Sea 2018, 2019 has been designated Year of Discovery by Visit Wales – www.visitwales.com. At Home from Home we’ve always been about discovery: inviting our visitors to experience for themselves what we cherish and sometimes take for granted.

If it’s adventure you seek whether at sea, on dry land, on two legs or two wheels, you’ll find it all here. Or if it’s quality time with the family you crave, you’ll find space to grow together too. Summer and winter, outdoors and indoors, there’s activity galore to keep the young and young at heart happy.

You can do it all here. Or you can do nothing at all. Simply decide which of the many faces of Gower and which property will suit you. Leave the rest to us.

Start the discovery now. Choose which location and which of our properties is for you by visiting our website www.homefromhome.com. To see all the magic of Gower in the palm of your hand, download our specially designed app.

Searching for

ADVENTURE Back in the 70s, to achieve a world class surfing title and live in Gower seemed an impossibility. But for European Champion and eight-times Welsh Champion, Pete Jones – known now simply as PJ – it became a reality and the way into a lifestyle he’s still enjoying today.

S

urfing was all PJ ever wanted to do and he’s still doing it now every day, though these days he’s more of a longboarder rather than a 6 ft. short-boarder who used to rip. His son, James, has inherited this love of surfing too and they often surf together. They also work together, running the world-renowned shop in Gower’s surfing capital, Llangennith, that stocks all manner of surfing goods for sale, and hire, along with expert advice from a pro. James also manages the Welsh Surfing Federation (WSF) Surf School, giving qualified instruction to beginners and improvers. www.surfschool.wsf.wales PJ cannot believe his luck to have had a hobby that turned into a way of life for him, his children and now his grandchildren, in a place he loves. For PJ and many others like him in the surfing and watersports’ community, Gower is blessed. Small and compact it means that whatever the wind direction and the size of swell running, there is always somewhere on the peninsula you can search out a wave quickly. And

with its mild climate and little frost, the sea temperature never gets too cold. With modern technology wetsuits today, it’s a very different picture from the pioneering days of PJ and other local surfing legends of the late 60s and early 70s. Despite his world-wide travel and surfing experience, PJ’s favourite perfect wave is the break off the inner point in Langland Bay. On a big day, it gets scary there but despite that, there’s no need to paddle outside. James begs to differ with his father as is the way with fathers and sons. For him the perfect wave is Langland too, but the Sand Reef.

That’s the thing about surfing, it keeps you fit and it’s the only sport where age or ability is a not a barrier. It’s also social – when we’re all in the water around here together there’s a real sense of being part of something very special. Pete Jones Surfer and owner, PJ Surf Shop, Llangennith, Gower

PJ’S TOP GOWER SURF SPOTS For information on wind and tide conditions visit www.pjsurfshop.co.uk

01 Llangennith – Picks up any swell hitting the coast. Consistent and surfable on all tides.

02 Reef Breaks – Experts only on this spectacularly jagged cliff stretch between Rhossili and Port Eynon. Mid to low tide.

03 Oxwich – Works well on a massive swell and usually in storm conditions. Only at high tide.

04 Caswell – High tide best and needs a moderate swell.

05 Langland – Low to mid tide mostly but can be good at high tide on occasion.

No limits PJ is passionate about surfing and the fact that it is accessible to everyone. And that’s the philosophy behind Surfability too, a Mumbles-based Community Interest Company (CIC), and UK expert, in adaptive surfing, offering adapted and inclusive surfing experiences to those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to surf on their own. For Surfability ‘it’s all about the individual’ and from those with mild learning difficulties to those with quadriplegia, all are taught one-to-one by experts in a safe and welcoming environment at Caswell Bay (or in winter, inside at Swansea’s LC with its wave machine) with surfboards and wetsuits especially adapted to individual needs and challenges.

Surfability’s vision is to see surfing as a sport with ‘no limits’ to those less able who search adventure. It is leading the charge to develop best practice in the UK with the aim of changing perceptions towards the acceptance and inclusion of adaptive surfing as mainstream. www.surfability.uk

People who are overwhelmed by sensory experiences on dry land really come out of their shell in the water. They become relaxed and seem to absorb the energy of the waves. It’s a perfect match. Ben Clifford Founder and Director, Surfability CIC, Mumbles

For example, it provides beach-access wheelchairs and has already developed the first seated tandem board in Europe for those who cannot sit up unaided. In the pipeline (pun!) is the development of surfboards for those with visual impairments and a tandem body board to improve indoor surfing lessons for wheelchair users.

Seeking

INSPIRATION Iconic views. Shifting light. Big skies. No wonder Gower is a rich source of inspiration for creativity. At Gower Gallery, Mumbles, visual artist and owner, Arwen Banning, has created a special space for Welsh artists to exhibit their distinctive responses to Gower’s unique sense of place.

A

rwen Banning grew up in the seaside village of Mumbles, where her parents ran Mumbles Fine Art. She studied art in Edinburgh, lived and worked in Newcastle, New York and London, and along the way had her work included in the ‘BP Portrait Award’ at the National Gallery. And then in 2014 she saw the sea again. The rest, as they say, is history. Today she lives and paints back in the seaside village of Mumbles, where her children go to school, her husband works as an architect, and she has recently re-located Gower Gallery, with its impressive and long-established 12

pedigree, to take pride of place on the front in Mumbles. It’s a bold and spacious internal exhibition space that allows Arwen to realise her vision, giving a home to the works of over thirty local Welsh artists and artists who have a special love and association with the Gower area. Each artist captures the area in their own special way. The list of Arwen’s favourites is long, but she singles out Katie Allen, who shows internationally and who moved to Swansea in 1975, whose work is based on

landscapes and the natural world, changing seasons and shades. Then there’s Scottish Colourist, Michelle Scragg, whose feel-good work shows traditional Scottish techniques applied to Wales. Any list would be incomplete without inclusion of Arwen’s father, Ron Banning (a completely unbiased choice!), whose work, infused with light and the strata of the Gower landscape, reflects his earlier days as a geologist. And of course, as artist in residence, Arwen is proud to show her own work too. >

But the gallery is much more. It’s a living, breathing, cultural hub at the heart of the community. A place where visitors from all over the UK and the wider world, and locals, can browse and buy if they wish, not only original works of art, sculpture and pottery but prints and gifts.

Cultural vibe

Many visitors are so smitten by what they experience in Gower during a short stay that they come into the gallery to seek out a little piece to take home with them to keep the memory fresh until they return.

If you’re interested in Swansea’s industrial and maritime past and seeing the anchor point of The European Route of Industrial Heritage (ERIH) visit the high-tech National Waterfront Museum at Swansea’s Marina. Entry is free. www.museum.wales

Among the most popular landscapes sold to visitors are the iconic view of Three Cliffs Bay and Worm’s Head whereas locals tend to go for the more secret locations of Pwll Du and Caswell Bay. www.gowergallery.co.uk

Arwen is passionate about sharing her love of her home patch. The area is unique in offering Swansea city’s vibrant arts and cultural scene alongside the quieter culture and visual inspiration afforded by the AONB of Gower.

Close by is Wales’ oldest museum, Swansea Museum, showcasing the ordinary and the extraordinary from Swansea past and present and the focus for the future of the city and its people. www.swansea.museum@swansea.gov.uk And there’s much more within walking distance, including the Mission Gallery, an architectural gem and one of the most inspiring spaces in Wales for the contemporary arts, hosting an ambitious mix of exhibitions, events and crafts. www.missiongallery.co.uk

The views in Gower are amazing. The weather is changeable and so is the subject matter – October with its golden hues, November with its purple skies, the constantly shifting light. Even rain is good. Arwen Banning Owner/Director and Artist in Residence Gower Gallery, Mumbles

Finding

FAMILY TIME Rugby legend, Ryan Jones travelled the world as British & Irish Lions’, Wales’ and Ospreys’ captain. Now he’s hung up his boots, and could have chosen to settle anywhere, but it’s back in Mumbles where his family has put down firm roots.

T

hough his rugby days on the field might be over Ryan Jones’ commitment to the future of the game in Wales is as strong as ever. Today he’s Head of Participation at WRU, a role that sees him commute back and fore to Cardiff on a daily basis. But for him and his wife Ailsa (a physiotherapist with Swansea City AFC) it’s a sacrifice worth making so that they can live and bring up their three children, Jacob, 8, Ellie-May, 6, and Annie, 4, in a seaside suburb that’s safe and happy and has a holiday feeling all year round. He’s finally found in Mumbles what he felt as a boy when his family would leave home

Discover your Gower – 01792 360624

in Newport for holidays in Devon and Cornwall: that natural affinity with the coast, nostalgia for innocent fun, a sense of sunny days and ice-creams which were here in Wales all that time! And it’s this combination of feelings that led Ryan and his business partner, Mark Sansum, to develop Gower Ice Cream, and take their love of Gower and all its distinctive flavours to market. With names like Rhossili Strawberry, Mumbles Mint Chocolate Chip, Three Cliffs Vanilla, Langland Bay Chocolate and Caswell Salted Caramel (coming soon on the ice cream pipeline), it’s evident that it’s a labour of love and a pride in ‘brand Gower’.

Who knows if Ryan is eating his own weight in ice cream; but something is keeping the weight off him. He’s two stone lighter than he was at the end of his rugby career and it might be because he’s now a fully-fledged tri-athlete and in his own words admits to being, ‘a keen cyclist, an average runner, and a dreadful swimmer’. For him, there’s nowhere better to train than along Gower’s coast path and in the clear coastal waters. Though the path and the pain remain constant, conditions change with the seasons: bursting with golden gorse in the spring and carpeted with the purple hues of heathers in the autumn. Sometimes it’s just him and the elements in the ocean. >

Keeping up with the Joneses If it’s not work and sport that’s keeping him light, then it’s surely three children under nine. And on Saturday match-days when Ailsa is working, he’s in sole charge. It’s an off the field captain’s role which he doesn’t deny is challenging but one which he loves stepping up to the plate for. It often starts with the comfy ritual of Ryan cooking sausage sandwiches at the house before deciding what’s on the menu of activities for the day. The Joneses are spoiled for choice as they live perfectly placed between Caswell Bay and Langland Bay, both family-friendly, sandy beaches, perfect for letting off steam and expending energy for kids and Dads alike. For the Joneses it’s about simple family pleasures like digging a hole in the sand and covering each other up, building

sandcastles and smashing them down, even throwing the odd rugby ball on occasion. They’re hardy types these Joneses and whatever the weather they’re out and about exploring Gower’s beaches, pushing the boundaries, discovering somewhere or something they’ve never seen before – a rope swing in the trees, a mysterious cave, a secret cove. They never fail to be amazed by the fact that they can be on seven different beaches and can enjoy seven very different experiences within minutes from home. That’s why they never take for granted what’s on the doorstep and appreciate the breadth of experiences that are on offer on the peninsula. There are always rocks to be climbed, crabs to be uncovered, fish to be reeled in. There’s always a new pebble to be turned; a new vista just around the next headland. Always a little further to go…

Free-Range Kids The Jones children are free-range kids and Gower gives them space to grow and opportunities just as Ryan had when he was a child. As Ryan’s father used to say to him: ‘Skin is waterproof.’ So it’s on with the wellies and the macs and out the door whatever the weather. That is part of the magic of Gower. And when they’re done, there’s the reward of hot chocolate inside the cosy Surfside Café on the beach at Caswell where they can all warm up by the log burner and watch the drama of the weather and the ocean as it plays out just beyond the window. >

We didn’t want the kids to be brought up in the anonymity of a big city. Here in Mumbles they can go to the local school where they are known and are part of a community with a big village atmosphere. Ryan Jones Head of Participation WRU Caswell Bay

The Life of Reilly It took Ryan Jones a while to find home, so too Michael Reilly. From New South Wales, Australia, to South Wales, via London along the way, this former city banker, his wife, Ellen (a Gower girl) and three young daughters are now settled in Gower, living out the kind of family life they always dreamed of. It might only be four years ago and three hours away but London life is already a distant memory and a million miles away from Oxwich. It’s at Bayview, high above the picturesque Gower village on the south of the peninsula, with views over the bay and on to Three Cliffs beyond, where the Reillys live and work. Gone are the days of getting up at five and getting home at eight, battling the traffic on his motorbike, risking life and limb on the daily commute from Fulham to

Canary Wharf. From hardly ever seeing his three girls (only at weekends and only when exhausted) he now sees Megan, 9, Florence, 8, and Alice, 4, every day. And, for a few days every fortnight, he is both mother and father to them while Ellen (a media lawyer who home-works) does her stint at the London office when the need dictates. Like Ryan Jones, Michael is also a few stones lighter these days. From a sedentary life style in London he is now actively handson in the tourism business they bought and rebranded at Bayview – keeping the gorgeous grounds maintained and manicured and the natural woodlands in the best of health. At Bayview, www.bayviewoxwich.co.uk, the Reillys have two luxury holiday apartments and ten gorgeous semi-detached seaside bungalows for rent in the safe care of Home from Home.

The whole family’s totally embraced Gower: Michael is an on-call member of the Gower Coastguards, Megan and Florence are members of Langland Bay Surf Life Saving ‘Nippers’ (with Alice already eager to join and looking forward to swim-tests soon) and Ellen enjoying early morning runs on the beach at Oxwich. You could say they’ve all found their natural element. It’s not only been a lifestyle change for Ellen and Michael but for the girls too, who have taken to Oxwich life like ducks to water. They wouldn’t go back to London for the world and on a recent trip there complained about the constant sirens, the traffic, the dirt and the litter. Why would you when you can enjoy the life of Reilly and have all that city, country and coast offer within minutes of each other?

We really appreciate how lucky we are to wake up every morning and see the sun rise over the sea from our beds. We know we’ve made the right move. Michael Reilly Owner, Bayview, Oxwich

#GOWER STORIES The Gower Gin Company

Gower Brewery

Gower Salt Marsh Lamb

www.thegowergincompany.wales The Gower Gin Company based at Port Eynon is a strong ambassador for Gower and Welsh produce and a shining example of a successful rural enterprise. Gower Gin GWYR ™ is the very essence of Gower and Swansea’s sense of place – the freshness of the sea and the heady fragrance of local dune herbs. Even the bottle’s distinctive design reflects the company’s pride and links with Swansea’s maritime and industrial past: blue for marine, and copper for a time when Swansea was known the world over as Copperopolis. The perfect tipple while you’re here; and a reminder of Gower when you’re home.

www.gowerbrewery.com In Gower, the UK’s first designated AONB, something exciting has been happening in the world of brewing traditional ales. Inspired by the love of great beer and the lack of a brewery on the Gower peninsula, the Gower Brewery was born in 2011.

www.gowersaltmarshlamb.co.uk. Gower’s tidal marshes along the north of the peninsula are a rich source of grazing for sheep.

BEACH HOUSE – LAVERBREAD BREAD We use 1/2lb tins for the bread here at Beach House but you can use whatever size you prefer. This batch will make approx.12 mini-loaves which are great for dinner parties and are suitable to freeze.

The dough by this stage should be springy, damp to touch but not wet and sticky and have a slight sheen to it. Cover with clingfilm and allow to prove to twice the size in a cool environment (not in the fridge but not somewhere hot or in direct sunlight).

Recipe 350g Water 1g Dried yeast 275g Extra strong bread flour

300g laverbread 250g giant oats Cold water

Mix all ingredients well, clingfilm bowl and allow to prove overnight, the dough will triple in size and then fall slightly. The mix should be like a thick batter at this stage.

When the dough has doubled in size, tip out on to a floured bench and knock the dough back.

1050g Extra strong flour 24g Salt 5g Dried yeast 271g Ice cold water Place all ingredients in a bowl with a dough hook, mix on a slow speed for 1 minute, add the starter dough then continue to mix for 30 minutes on a slow speed.

For the 1/2lb tins take 185g of dough and pin out to 1cm thick. Place a layer of laverbread over the dough and fold over. Brush with the cold water and roll in the giant oats. Place into the greased tins. Once all dough is used then clingfilm the tins lightly to allow to prove once again in a cool environment, the dough will prove over double in size.

Hywel Griffith – Head Chef’s tip When placing the bread into bake throw some water in to the base of the oven to generate steam, this is what gives the awesome crust to the bread. If you have frozen the loaves, once defrosted bake for 3-4 minutes in a 160°c oven to re heat.

Bake at 210°c for 14 minutes.

Swansea Street Markets www.urbanfoundry.co.uk When it comes to markets, Swansea’s got the lot including local produce markets and pop-up street markets at the Marina, Morriston and Uplands.

Treading

NEW PATHS Kim Davies might be a Global Director for a major cosmetics brand and live half the week in London, but she’s a Swansea girl at heart. And there’s nowhere she loves to walk more than in and around the iconic landscapes of her home city.

K

im literally has her hard-working feet in two camps at the moment, until the time comes when she can return, full time, to the place she loves. She’s already making plans. She’s got a flat overlooking Swansea Bay and a luxury boutique rental property ‘Promenade View’ (which offers what it says on the tin) in the fashionable village of Mumbles, a property which she’s placed in the safe hands of Home from Home.

And today she does serious walking. We’re talking Nordic Walking and challenging long distance walking such as the twenty-six miles of the spectacular Gower Coastal Path from Rhossili to Swansea Bay. But she also does gentler strolls such as the stimulating five mile circular walk through Clyne Gardens, where she gets to connect not only with beautiful flowers and foliage and brooks and streams, but with evidence of Swansea’s rich industrial past.

Leading her many walking groups allows Kim to connect with friends and family who share her love, so walking becomes a social as well as physical activity which is food for the soul. Kim is also adamant that walking also allows her to re-connect with her grandmothers who both lived until over a hundred and who trod the very same path as Kim often does along the sweep of Swansea Bay. There must be something in the genes and in the air.

Kim exudes energy, good health and a certain beauty which she puts down to a sense of inner well-being, discovered when she started to take her health and exercise seriously in her 50s.

Wherever the walk and whatever the scale of difficultly, the common thread is that exercising in natural light in a place where she feels she belongs, gives Kim a deep connection with nature along with a spiritual boost and the feel good factor.

It’s something she feels passionately about sharing. She would encourage visitors, however long they stay, whatever the time of the year, to follow in her footsteps. Tread new paths. Achieve that sense of belonging. >

Made for walking Kim is proud that Wales is the first country in the world to have a dedicated footpath that hugs the whole 810 miles of its glorious coastline. The Swansea and Gower section extends from Swansea Port and the SA1 Waterfront in the east around Swansea Bay and the Gower peninsula to Loughor in the west, a total of approximately 40 miles. For further information see www.walescoastpath.gov.uk/explorebyarea/ gower-swansea-bay You don’t have to do it all in one or be a dedicated walker to discover the shape of Gower. Just put on your walking shoes and choose from a short stretch for a quick and easy stroll or longer challenging hike.

Either way you’ll get a feel for Swansea, city by the sea, and the coastline of the Gower peninsula with its award-winning golden beaches, ten nature reserves, twenty-four wildlife trusts, thirty-two sites of special interest and five special areas of conservation. The path is clearly waymarked with the distinctive white dragon-shell logo and is served by both the train stations at Swansea and Gowerton. www.nationalrail.co.uk and by bus www.travelline.cymru or www.swanseabaywithoutacar.com

That’s what’s great about walking the Swansea and Gower area. There’s always a stop with an iconic view. Take stock. Take a breather. Feel the pulse. Be silent, at one with nature and yourself. Kim Davies Global Brand Director & Nordic Walker London/Swansea

A walk for all seasons Step out all-year long and explore the best of what the area has on offer.

Or, if you’re around in 1-9 June, 2019, be part of the annual Gower celebration of walking and join one (or all) of the walks organised by www.gowerwalkingfestival.co.uk

Spring Get up a little earlier. Go a little further. There’s nothing like morning hill walking at Pen-y-Fan in the Brecon Beacons.

Autumn

If you’d like something more leisurely and a little nearer, stroll along Gower’s ancient drangways before the summer crowds arrive and see the hedges ablaze with the gold of gorse. Or try Clyne Gardens in May when its award-winning rhododendrons and azaleas are in full bloom. www.enjoygower.com

See our famed city parks in all their autumn glory with a stroll through Singleton and Brynmill adjacent to Swansea Bay. Here you will come across the wonderful Singleton Abbey now part of Swansea University’s Bay Campus. Or head to Gower’s downs – Rhossili, Llanmadoc, Ryer’s and Harding’s – and be amazed at the carpet of pink, purple and plum heathers in early September.

Summer

Winter

If you can’t take the heat and can’t be persuaded to stay on the beach, find cool and head for the woods. Try Penllergaer Woods close to, but a million miles away from the city, and forage into Swansea’s industrial past. Wander through Clyne Valley Park, from Hendrefoilan Woods to Dunvant to discover a secret world – 700 acres of amazing broadleaf woodland and plantain.

If you don’t want to get your boots muddy, head for dry paths. The Langland to Caswell stretch of the Coast Path is tame and accessible to all as is the urban stretch around Swansea’s Marina.

Discover your Gower – 01792 360624

If you don’t care about muddy boots, challenge yourself to the Gower Coast Path in its entirety or a little section each day and see Gower’s varied coastline in all its winter wonder.

KIM’S WALKING HIGHLIGHTS 01 Tramp the spine of Rhossili Down past the ruins of World War 2 Wireless Station. Take in the world-famous views of Worm’s Head.

02 Stroll along the sweep of Swansea Bay. Great views in all directions. Path is flat, accessible to all levels of fitness and ability.

03 Walk along the beach from Oxwich to Tor Point. Check the tide and if it’s out, walk around the point to iconic Three Cliffs Bay.

04 Mooch around Swansea’s Marina for an easy urban walk at the water’s edge alongside famous Swansea landmarks.

05 Head out west to sample the Millennium Coastal Path. See wetlands and bird life and Gower from a new perspective.

Sniffing out

PET-FRIENDLY HOLIDAYS Pets are part of the family. We wouldn’t be without them for the world – especially on holiday. Home from Home’s Meilyr Passmore gives an insider view on what’s on offer for our four-legged friends in Gower, where the phrase ‘it’s a dog’s life’ takes on an entirely different meaning.

F

or Mumbles-based Meilyr Passmore, his wife, Emma, and 11-year-old daughter, Erin (a rising Welsh tennis star) the family wouldn’t be complete without dogs. They have two: Belle, a Golden Retriever, they’ve had since a puppy; and Indi, a once-troublesome mongrel (part Flat Coat Retriever) rescue dog they gave a good home to. In human years, both dogs are the same age as Emma, but in dog years, time is beginning to tell, Belle suffering with epilepsy and Indi with arthritis in her hind legs. But that doesn’t stop them getting out for brisk walks along Gower’s glorious beaches where the dogs seem to become puppies again – paddling in the shore-break, chasing 32

just bar gates. At high tide, you can all frolic inand out of the water. And as the tide drops back, you can walk around the headland to iconic Three Cliffs Bay one way and on to Pobbles, or along the two mile sweep of sand to Oxwich Bay, in the other direction.

Tor Bay is a favourite haunt for the Passmores (often with Erin’s cousin Will in tow) all year round. With its limestone headlands and safe swimming it’s proof that life in Gower is a beach for humans and dogs alike. Parking is easy and it’s just a fifteen-minute walk along a cobbled path and a five-minute clamber down the dunes and then you’re there. You don’t even have to put the dogs on the leads and there are no stiles to climb over –

Tor Bay (like Rhossili Bay) is privately owned so the dogs are free to roam, as long as owners respect the natural environment and the hygiene rules and of course, other beach users, by putting dogs on the lead as necessary. It’s here that the Passmores feel free too. With their minds away from the daily grind they can relax, kick-back, take their shoes and socks off and pad around with the dogs. > Discover your Gower – 01792 360624

In Winter, the Passmores prefer walks closer to home. It’s so easy for them to just pop to Langland Bay or Caswell Bay and certain parts of Swansea Bay, publically owned beaches which have restrictions from May to October but are go-to destinations as the crowds thin. It’s here that Meilyr can walk the dogs, check the surf, and warm up with a take-away coffee from the many beach shacks. Or sometimes, he’ll drop the dogs home to dry off in front of the log-burner and then head down to Mumbles Coffee House in the arcade on the fashionable newly-developed front.

Pet-friendly pads When he’s not walking the dogs, Meilyr is enjoying his other much-loved role as Office Manager at Home from Home. He’s proud of the fact that Home from Home is the largest holiday-cottage letting company in the area and proud that as a company they have responded to the huge and growing demand for holiday properties that welcome pets. In fact, HFH encourages all the property owners in their portfolio to welcome pets and currently have over one hundred

properties that have opened their doors to pets: there is George, the parrot, who’s a regular, the occasional cat, but mostly it’s canines. Everyone who books a holiday cottage for themselves and their pet, will, as a matter of course, be sent relevant literature of where you can take your dog while you’re in Gower. From beaches and parks, to coffee shacks, pubs and restaurants, you’ll find all you need. At the end of your holiday, you’ll understand why a dog’s life in Gower is something very different from what you might have imagined.

Walking the dogs in Gower is so relaxing. You’re free to roam. It’s great to explore and take your mind off the grind and it not only gets you out of the house but out of yourself as well. Meilyr Passmore Office Manager, Home from Home

For couples, a stroll along the promenade followed by a glass of fizz and a romantic meal for two at one of the many restaurants as the moon rises over the bay is a sure way to create memories that you will both remember forever.

As venues such as Castellamare, La Parilla, Bistro Pierre and many others are situated on the waterfront, you can enjoy good food and drink whilst watching the boats bobbing up and down on the bay.

For groups and more mature visitors, there is enough to do for everyone to have a good time from playing golf at one of the many local courses, watching sport at the local rugby, football and cricket clubs or simply taking advantage of the location.

Something for everyone Whether you are taking the children to the penny slots on the pier, enjoying the delicious homemade ice-creams on sale at Joe’s, Fortes and Verdi’s or watching the little ones explore the castle; Mumbles is geared up for young families and will not disappoint.

Discover Langland and Rotherslade Joined at low tide, separated at high-tide; Langland and Rotherslade are rich in history and although only 750 metres across, there’s enough to see and do to keep visitors coming back day after day.

At the foot of the steep Rotherslade Road, a short drive from Mumbles or a brisk walk along the cliff path lies Rotherslade Bay or “Little Langland” as it is known locally. With its picturesque huts perched on the cliff-tops overlooking the small, pebbled beach below, Rotherslade has the look and feel of a painting.

At the head of Rotherslade stands a terrace with steps leading to the beach and a small café serving refreshments for most of the year. Once home to a popular dancehall, the site is ideal during the summer months for beach BBQs and in the winter, a great place to watch the tide surging against the steps creating huge waves.

Little wonder then that famous impressionist artist, Alfred Sisley, painted at least 11 views across the bay when he stayed in what was once the Osbourne Hotel (now a modern apartment complex) during his honeymoon in 1897.

A very short walk away is the famous Langland Bay. Recognisable by its row of green and white beach huts, the bay has been a popular destination since the late 19th century and has something for everyone.

For the energetic, there’s surfing, paddle boarding and kayaking; for others, the tennis courts and award-winning 18-hole golf course have their appeal, and everyone can enjoy the two cafés and delightful restaurant – Langland Brasserie. Fondly known as Langland ‘Bras’ the dog-friendly venue (outside only) serves a wonderful range of freshly caught seafood, steaks and has a good vegetarian menu to go with their extensive wine list. They also serve tea, coffee and light bites throughout the day so if the beach-life is getting too much, venture inside!

Left to right: Relaxing on Rotherslade Bay. The 18-hole award winning Langland Bay Golf Club. Enoy a meal with a view at the Langland Brasserie.

Stretching westwards from Swansea, it’s here you’ll find breath-taking beaches, a continuous coast-hugging path, woodlands, ancient castles and churches not forgetting award-winning restaurants and country inns and much more.

G

ower’s coastline is dotted with award-winning beaches, and everyone who visits has a personal favourite.

For those who like their beaches with cafés and shops nearby, Langland and Caswell not only have ample parking but offer ice-creams, snacks, lunches and a wide range of sports.

Large, golden stretches of beach greet you at Port Eynon, Oxwich and Three Cliffs while the award-winning Rhossili Bay (our worldbeating beach) boasts 3 miles of soft sand, ship-wrecks and a giant rock feature known as Worm’s Head.

Riding the ocean Gower is a magnet for the surfing community, rivalled only by Cornwall in the UK. Langland Bay, Caswell Bay and Llangennith are probably the top three if you want to pull on the wetsuit and get carried along the lapping Welsh waves. But you don’t have to traverse across the frothy ocean to enjoy the bracing Gower ocean; the area is home to a host of thrilling water sports attractions to suit everyone from the young to the old. >

For those who like a secluded beach to lay their towel, Pwll Du, Tor Bay and Fall Bay are a bit of a walk, but once you get there, the peace and tranquillity will make the trek truly worthwhile.

Discover Caswell Bay and Summercliffe Park Golden sands that seem to stretch on forever, caves, rock pools, woodlands, clear waters… Caswell Bay has it all.

Nestled between the villages of Bishopston and Newton, Caswell Bay sits in a valley and is popular with locals and visitors alike. Patrolled by lifeguards during the summer months, the beach is a great place for various types of water sports from swimming and body-boarding to kayaking and its long, sandy beach is ideal for a bit of Frisbee, kite-flying or good oldfashioned sandcastle building! If you’ve always wanted to surf, Caswell is a great place to learn as it not only has a surf school but the gentle slope of the

beach means the waves are not too big. Once you’ve dried off you can grab a quick refreshment at the Surfside Café. Open most of the year, the café serves a range of snacks. During the summer months other beachside nearby shops serve ice-creams, soft drinks and lots of beach equipment from windbreakers and buckets & spades to kites and cricket sets.

Summercliffe Park A series of well-presented chalets, Summercliffe Park is a short walk from the beach as well as a short distance from Bishops Wood nature reserve. With offroad parking and a real community feel about the park, Summercliffe is a great place to meet new friends and catch up with old ones!

The local authority has recently refurbished the public toilets and to the north of the beach is a huge pay and display car park which backs on to Bishops Wood nature reserve – a great place to explore with the family.

Discover Bishopston and Pwll Du Bay The village of Bishopston is perfectly located on South Gower. There are secluded and secret beaches; Pwll Du and Brandy Cove, public houses and long coastal and woodland walks on your doorstep, plus Mumbles and the rest of Gower are easily reached within a short drive. Bishopston Recently voted one of the Best Places to Live 2017 by the Sunday Times, this picturesque parish traces its roots to Roman times and has everything you would expect from a coastal Welsh village. For locally sourced cuisine in a traditional pub setting it has to be either The Valley or The Plough and Harrow. Both venues are family-friendly and serve a wide range of meals to suit all tastes and budgets. If sampling real ale is your thing, try The Joiners Arms. Home to one of Swansea’s first micro-breweries, ‘The Joiners’ is a locals’ pub that welcomes visitors with open arms. A short distance from ‘The Joiners’ is the path to St Teilo’s, a tiny church dating back to Norman times.

Pwll Du Bay This beautiful, picturesque beach has history rich in smuggling and quarrying and is a haven to walkers, artists and nature lovers and considered by many as Gower’s best kept secret. Our two properties in Pwll Du are just a stone’s throw from the beach (literally you can throw a stone from your balcony to the beach) which were previously a pub, built to keep the quarry workers from getting too thirsty. You can walk of course if you need a fix of civilisation either through the woods inland towards the village of Bishopston or along the cliff top coastal path that leads you to coffee shops, stores, pubs and less remote beaches.

Discover Southgate and Pennard Located 7 miles from the city centre as the crow flies are the quaint villages of Southgate and Pennard.

With its golf club, restaurant, local pub, convenience store and coffee shops, the essentials are all on your doorstep, but it’s the cliff top paths and breath-taking scenery that make this part of Gower so special. The cliff-top paths offer majestic views over the Bristol Channel and on a clear day the island of Lundy and the Devon coastline are easily visible. Walk to the east, and the path descends to Pwll Du bay, a famous location for pirates and smugglers in days gone by but also a great place to visit with the family (and the dog).

Pobbles is another of Gower’s glorious beaches. You will be greeted by soft sand, high limestone cliffs as well as multiple dunes to play on. At low tide, Pobbles joins Three Cliffs Bay, Tor Bay and Oxwich Bay to create a 2.5-mile stretch that is a delight to explore (just be mindful of the tide times so you don’t get caught!). Southgate and Pennard are another great ‘base’ location from which to explore Gower and with Mumbles and the City Centre less than 30 minutes drive, you are not too far away from the hustle and bustle of Swansea life.

To the west are paths that take you to three locations the area is known for; Pobbles Beach, Three Cliffs Bay and Pennard Castle.

178 Driftwood House East Cliff Sleeps 8: 1 King, 2 Double, 1 Twin

Location, location, location and brimming with every comfort you can possibly wish for, this extremely generously proportioned holiday home is hard to beat. Driftwood House sits on East Cliff, Gower, very close to the award winning Three Cliffs Bay, just a twenty minute walk.

Other features include an inglenook fireplace with multi fuel stove, a large kitchen, a huge bathroom with rolltop bath and a shower area, plus 3 of the bedrooms have en suite facilities.

Discover Parkmill, Penmaen and Nicholaston Heading further into the centre of Gower, you’ll find these three quaint villages. They are well suited for exploring and creating adventure on your holiday. Parkmill is the ideal location for Gower excursions and beach days. The famous Three Cliffs Bay is within walking distance of our Parkmill properties via a riverside walk and further villages such as Mumbles and Rhossili can be reached by car. Penmaen and Nicholaston both sit at the foot of Cefn Bryn, the ‘spine’ of Gower and are less than half a mile from each other. Penmaen is a superb location from which to explore both Cefn Bryn and the beaches of Tor Bay and Three Cliffs. The small car park, which is also a bus stop, is an excellent base if you are driving and the paths are clearly signposted to access both the beach and hills.

Slightly further down the road is Nicholaston which also has its own areas of exploration and enjoyment. From here, you can wander through Crawley Woods down to the easternmost part of Oxwich and with winding paths and old trees, it’s a route children love to take. Above Nicholaston is a path that takes you up to Cefn Bryn and its views over Gower, on a bright day, the mountains of Brecon can easily be seen from the summit. Just past Nicholaston is Perriswood, a falconry centre that offers archery and other sports for people of all ages and not far further on is the ruin of an old castle keep that marks the turning left to Oxwich Bay.

180 Stonemill Parkmill Sleeps 6: 1 King, 1 Double, 1 Twin

Stonemill, a 19th century former watermill, provides the guest with a hot tub and sauna, making this a relaxing retreat for all the family.

Renovation of this 150 year old property has been both sympathetic and creative; retaining original features including vaulted ceilings and oak beams, fixtures and fittings and quirky design details. The landscaping in the back garden is delightful and another key feature is that built over three floors, a stone spiral staircase rises up through the centre connecting the floors.

Discover Reynoldston and Central Gower If long walks, cosy pubs or dog-friendly cottages are of interest to you – then look no further than the cottages located in Reynoldston and Central Gower. If you fancy a day out walking and exploring the beautiful Gower, consider the 5k walk from Penmaen to Reynoldston. The walk starts out from the South East of the ridge at Penmaen car park and ends at the Neolithic burial ground at Arthur’s Stone. The large stone that is ‘Maen Ceti’ or ‘Arthur’s Stone’ rests upon supporting smaller stones. It is a monument that has many myths and legends, the most famous being King Arthur threw the rock that he found in his shoe and with his touch it grew in size and surrounding stones raised it high for all to see. From the site of King Arthur’s Stone, you can take in the views over Loughor estuary where the river starts its journey from an underground lake at the Black Mountain.

After a walk with stunning Gower views, visiting Arthur’s Stone and tiring the dogs out, nothing can be better than a rest stop at the ever-popular King Arthur Hotel. Serving food, drinks with seating inside as well as out, this landmark is home to some of our modern, yet comfortable, 5 star cottages. All dog-friendly and with the hotel on your doorstep, these cottages are a fabulous base for all your needs. Further afield in Cilonen, Llethryd and Stembridge, you can find the rural cottages. Perfect for escaping city life, rambling on Gower or visiting Gower heritage. Central Gower really does have a lot to offer if peacefulness and exploring are on your mind.

Discover Horton and Port Eynon To the south of Gower lie Horton and Port Eynon, two villages linked by a beautiful stretch of golden sand and dunes that on a summers day, could be a far-flung tropical paradise.

From fishing off the beach at Horton to a BBQ on the sand at Port Eynon as the sun sets, the location certainly has its admirers, and it’s easy to see why.

Eynon. The local pub, The Ship Inn, is a traditional Gower pub that has undergone a recent refurbishment yet still retains its original charm.

Take a wander up to Port Eynon Point and cast your eye over the unobstructed views of the Bristol Channel or explore the paths and woodlands surrounding the beach. For those who enjoy exploring castles and ruins, the remains of the Port Eynon Salt House are located to the southerly edge of the beach and offer an insight into the rich history of the area.

Serving a wide range of food and locally brewed ale, the dog-friendly pub is a must whether you are visiting in the summer or winter months and is welcoming to all ages of visitor.

With its seaside shops selling everything you need for a day at the beach to the fish and chip shops and cafés, you certainly won’t go hungry when staying in Port

Discover Rhossili and nearby villages Located to the far west of Gower are Rhossili and Middleton, two hamlets that offer visitors a great location from which to explore western Gower, especially on foot.

While both are picturesque and very near to one another, they both have immediate access to the dramatic cliff-top walks, beaches and viewpoints synonymous with this part of the world. For those who have visited Rhossili, two landmarks will certainly stand out – Worm’s Head and Rhossili Bay. The Worm sits at the far end of Gower and can be accessed at low tide and is a fun place to explore but be mindful of the tide times, so you don’t get trapped! The route along the cliff top path to The Worm is scenic, easy walking and is a wonderful route to take your dog – just keep on a

leash as there are usually sheep grazing in the area. At the top of Rhossili sits a large pay and display car park run by the National Trust alongside recently refurbished public toilets and shower facilities, frequently used by the hundreds of surfers who visit the area from around the world to ride the waves at Rhossili Bay. Located at the foot of the cliffs, the walk down to the bay is certainly easier than the walk back up but there are multiple benches on which to rest and the majority of the path is concrete.

The 3-mile stretch of beach is regularly voted as one of the top 10 beaches in the world, and it’s easy to see why. Golden sands, dramatic views and at low tide, there are the remains of wrecks to explore such as the Helvetia and several others. At the top of the path back to the car park is the Worm’s Head Hotel, a great place for a bite to eat or a refreshing drink and for those visiting in the summer, the courtyard is a great place to sit down with a loved one and watch one of the best sunsets in Wales, if not the world.

Left to right: Watching the sunset from the Worm’s Head Hotel. The spectacular Worm’s Head. Walking the coastal path from Rhossili to Burry Holms along the 3 mile sweep of the bay.

Discover Llangennith Popular with surfers, Llangennith occupies the northern stretch of Rhossili Bay but offers a lot more than just a great place to catch some waves.

Situated opposite Worm’s Head is Burry Holms, another explorable islet that families are sure to enjoy not just for the wildlife you can see, but also the stunning sea-views. Please be mindful of the tides though; you don’t want to get stranded! Surrounding the islet are the rolling downs and dunes this part of Gower is known for, and children and adults alike can have hours of fun traipsing across the landscape. The location is rich in flora and fauna such as wild rabbits and other furry creatures, so keep an eye out! A little further inland is the village of Llangennith with its 6th Century Church (named after St Cenydd), traditional pub (the King’s Head) and a surf shop.

The pub is dog-friendly and serves a wide range of food and drinks and is part of a local brewery, so if real ales or traditional ciders are your thing, they have a great selection to choose from. It is also an excellent place for families and has a beautiful terrace that catches the evening sun, so sit back and relax as the sun warms your face after a long day walking and enjoying the local countryside. Llangennith is also an ideal base from which to explore the northern reaches of Gower. To the right of Burry Holms is Broughton Sands, 3 miles of golden beach with the remains of Whiteford Lighthouse at its furthest most edge – a great walk and certainly one to work up an appetite for an evening in the King’s Head!

GRADINGS & SYMBOLS

GRADINGS & SYMBOLS Visit Wales’ grading system made clear, along with an explanation of Home from Home’s property icons as used throughout the brochure.

Visit Wales gradings Many of the properties do not have a Visit Wales grade displayed. 2018 has seen unprecedented occupation levels which has resulted in many grades expiring without being able to be renewed. This is due to Visit Wales not being able to access the property. This also applies to many new properties that have been added to our portfolio in recent months. The majority of the grades will be renewed in the next 2 months with the remainder being graded in Spring 2019. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

What does Visit Wales Grading mean for you? A Visit Wales Grading means you can be confident that your holiday cottage has been checked out before you check in.

Is there any difference between Visit Wales and other grading schemes? All the national assessing bodies (Visit Britain, Visit Scotland, Visit Wales and the AA) now assess holiday accommodation to the same criteria and award one to five stars. The stars reflect the facilities and overall quality of the experience. This grading scheme was introduced in 2008.

How do we assess properties? The Quality Wales team of professional assessors normally visit each property on a biennial basis. Visit Wales is the premier assessing agency for accommodation in Wales, checking out over 5,000 places every year.

What do the Visit Wales star ratings mean? Visit Wales star ratings made easy: H Simple, practical, no frills HH Well presented and well run HHH Good level of quality and comfort HHHH Excellent standard throughout HHHHH Exceptional with a degree of luxury

Key to property icons Throughout the brochure we use a range of icons to indicate key features of individual properties. SAT Changeover day

Pet accepted

Does a lower star rating equal less quality? Many lower star rated accommodations may still offer high quality, but do not meet all of the facility and service expectations for the higher star ratings. Always check with Home from Home before booking if this is important to you – we will be pleased to help.
