manip_IMG_8153‘Tŷ Pwlldu’ is lovely terraced house, quietly situated on a lane that leads to the unspoilt bay of Pwlldu and the Gower Coastal Footpath.

Pwlldu (Welsh for Black Pool and pronounced Pooth Dee) is a beautiful, secluded bay with a history of smuggling and is a haven to walkers, artists and nature lovers and is considered by many as Gower’s best kept secret.

The Post Office / grocery store (where you can make free cash withdrawals) is just a few doors down from the property and serves the immediate local community, making this charming little house a great base to enjoy Gower.

Both Brandy Cove and Pwlldu Bay are off the beaten track, but within fairly easy walking distance of 10 to 15 minutes from the house. There are also 3 excellent local pubs, one of which is a real ale pub and another a gastro pub, within 5 minutes walking; both of which serve excellent pub food.  A new mini Coop supermarket is situated in the centre of the village.
