Burrows Cottage at Cwm Ivy stands on the north-western edge of the Gower Peninsula. A simple, single storey former forester's cottage, it sits in a secluded location alongside pine woods, a short walk from sand dunes and a huge sandy beach which form part of the Whiteford Burrows National Nature Reserve. A good sized enclosed garden surrounds the cottage.
Heating: Gas central heating included.
Cottage approach: The cottage is reached down a private gated drive.
Accessibility: The bedroom and bathroom are on the ground floor but the cottage may not be suitable for wheelchair users.
Please note: Burrows cottage is quite remote and has no phone.
Visitors should be aware that part of the nearby estuary was used as a test firing range during World War II. The Navy do regular sweeps of the area and are very vigilant.
South Wales is a land of sweeping green valleys, rugged mountains, woodland and forests and miles of coastal paths laced with heather.
The special places we look after in Pembrokeshire include the rugged landscape and views over to Ireland from St David's Peninsula, to the nature reserve at Stackpole where otters and dragonflies nestle amongst the water reeds. Then take in the views over the Bristol Channel to Lundy and Exmoor from sun-drenched Rhossili, the highest point on the Gower peninsula.
In North Wales, the dramatic mountain scenery of Snowdonia, with its rivers, waterfalls and the Nant Gwynant valley nestled amongst the mountains and hills, draws people back again and again, while the colourful beach huts at Llanbedrog beach and grey seal-spotting at Porthor Beach are just a few of the highlights of the very special Llyn Peninsula.
The Gower peninsula is a stunning unspoilt coastal landscape, 5,500 acres of which are owned by the National Trust and was the first place in Britain to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. An exceptionally mild climate, picturesque villages, free-roaming ponies in large areas of open common, ruined castles and a wealth of archaeology add to its enchantment. South Gower boasts internationally renowned beaches of rocky coves and golden sands. On West Gower the expanses of Rhossili and Whiteford beaches and the famous landmark, Worm's Head, are popular with visitors. North Gower in contrast provides a sweeping estuary of tidal salt marsh grazed by ponies and sheep, while the beautiful seaside village of Mumbles and the city centre of Swansea are just a stone's throw away.
