Little Haven Cottages

Little Haven Cottages

I know it’s not really South Wales but I’ve recently been creating some websites for a couple of friends who have seaside cottages to rent in Little Haven in West Wales.

With the Covid-19 pandemic the houses haven’t been available for rent, but will be available again from early July 2020 for a staycation. Though most of the summers dates are already booked.

Little Haven is a great place for a holiday. We’ve been several times for short breaks. The village is quite seaside cutesy, and the beach is great. Little Haven beach is quite small, but extends out and joins up with Broad Haven at low tide, giving you a huge area for fun and games.

These seaside cottages are well worth a look at if you fancy a break in Pembrokeshire, Wales.

Some things to do in the Gower (beaches)

The Gower is one of South Wales’ big tourist attractions. It’s a peninsular just west of Swansea and was the first area in the United Kingdom to be designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  It’s a real mix of rugged coastline, glorious beaches, great views and castles.

I was lucky enough to fly around the Gower last summer so some of the photos in this post will give you a great view of some of the great beaches.

View of Mumbles village and Swansea Bay

Review – Patricks with Rooms, Mumbles

Last week we stayed in the excellent Patricks With Rooms in Mumbles.  Mumbles is one of our favourite seaside destinations in South Wales.

Patricks is an excellent hotel with a great restaurant. It’s located right on the main promenade only yards from the sea. The hotel has 16 individual bedrooms, the renowned restaurant and a relaxing bar area.  There’s also a small gym and weights room for residents.Read full post…

Mumbles and Mumbles Pier

We’ve recently had a few days in Mumbles staying at the excellent Patrick’s With Rooms hotel.  Mumbles is a great place to visit – it’s right on the seafront with fantastic views right round Swansea Bay.  You can promenade around the Bay for several miles if you wish.

Mumbles Village is great for just spending a few hours – it has lots of little shops, quite a few pubs and great cafés and restaurants.  There’s a good children’s playground and crazy golf (just opposite Patrick’s) and the kids will love the beach at Bracelet Bay and rock-pools when the tide is out.  Note: when the tide is in there’s no beach at all and be warned – the tide comes in quickly here. Check the tides here before you visit.

New House Hotel Cardiff

New House Country Hotel, Cardiff

A few months back we had a romantic weekend away at the excellent New House Country Hotel just north of Cardiff.

We fancied somewhere special and New House certainly lived up to that!

The hotel is situated on the hills just north of the city. It has spectacular views down over Cardiff and the Bristol Channel.

The hotel is very luxurious and feels just like my idea of a country manor hotel. Even the gravel drive sounded right as we arrived!
