Description

Penmaen Manor is set in a perfect seaside location with fine golden sands as far as the eye can see. Dunes and downs surround the house for walkers and naturalists to explore. Overlooking Three Cliffs Bay and only a 15 minute walk down a rugged path over the dunes to Great Tor Bay - 30 minutes back! This is a safe walk with no roads to cross. Tor Bay is a superb sweep of very fine sand backed by high dunes curving 2 miles round to Oxwich.Garden feature - the garden pavilion is a cool or cosy outdoor Summerhouse where you can enjoy undercover garden pleasures such as pre-dinner drinks, light lunches, or just recovering after a long beach walk. The countryside nearby is ideal for walking and riding and a painters dream. There are good local pubs and Swansea is 15 minutes drive, which has marvelous shops, restaurants, marina and maritime museum, one of the largest markets in Wales, cinemas, theatres and golf courses. Penmaen Manor House dating back to the early 1600s has one of the finest views overlooking Three Cliffs Bay. Large landscaped gardens surround the house with plenty of space, even to have a game of cricket! For pure luxury you can spend time in the heated indoor swimming pool and sauna, which is entirely for your own use.

Reviews

Have no complaints whatsoever. Beautiful house and excellent location to see all the delights of the Gower peninsular. Had a great family holiday. Many memories were made

Mr Matthew B,

Very nice property we enjoyed our visit Excellent holiday just a shame you are booked up for next year

Mrs Lesley M,

We had an amazing family holiday at Penmaen House. This was a long planned celebration and the house did not disappoint. Lots for the children to do even on wet and windy days. A little cold at times when the wind blew but by snuggling up and lighting the fire the problem was solved. The house has three stair cases and the children had lots of fun playing hide and seek. It has a homely feel and we settled in very quickly. Lovely walks down to amazing beaches which were almost deserted at times. Quite a struggle walking back up the steep sandy paths though so not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. We love the outdoors, views and playing rounders using a piece of drift wood. Penmaen House was the perfect location for us and the dogs. Good value for money for a large family. April 2019
