“Been before, going again!”
Reviewed 19 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Kath & Bob are first class hosts, this gets you off to a great start in a fantastic location. This was our second trip to Ship Cottage and I'm sure it won't be our last. Plenty to see and plenty to do, the beach outside your door is an added bonus! Reading through the visitors book I was not surprised to see how many people have returned for second and third visits.

“A Fabulous place to stay”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

If you like beaches, walks and relaxation,then this is the holiday for you.Had a wonderful time staying in the cottage which was clean,spacious and had those extra touches that other holiday cottages don't ie lots of CD'd,DVD's books and games.

The beach was literally a pebbles throw away and on some days, we had it all to ourselves.
Walked up the Bishopston Valley one day to Kittle, which was...challenging.Every day ,we had eggs delivered courtesy of the owners' hens.The evenings were spent gazing at the log fire.

Will be seriously thinking of returning, perhaps in another season..Autumn?

“A little piece of heaven, away from the hustle and bustle”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This is a beautiful cottage in an idyllic place on the Gower. Perfect for walking the Gower coast path, which is stunning, for taking time to reflect on life, be mesmerised by the sea and to just escape from the madness of the world. It is the place to come to rejuvenate, recharge and just be. Would highly recommend it - the owners are lovely, the position perfect and the Gower has so much to offer. Wine on the beach at night, earl grey tea in the morning - what more could one want?

“Fabulous location - lovely cottage”
Reviewed 4 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The cottage is in a beautiful location, right on the beach. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and got us set up very quickly. The cottage was very clean and well equipped and the bedroom overlooks the sea.

Its remoteness is part of its charm, but it's at least a 20 minute walk across fields to where you normally park your car, so go prepared with wellies or good boots and gaiters, or with enough supplies to stay put! Also, a torch or two is a must.

All in all, a lovely stay in a romantic setting - will definitely be going back!
