Cwmshon Cottages have won the Borough in Bloom Competition for the second year running

Another award for our beautiful gardens!

The cottage gardens have won the Borough in Bloom Award again this Autumn. Fiona's hard work in the gardens has once again paid off! All summer the gardens have been a riot of colour and scent, attracting butterflies from all around. Our self catering holiday cottages near Swansea and the Gower are luxuriously modernised and well equipped to enjoy perfect self catering accommodation for those who want a walking holiday on the Gower peninsular, or cycling/mountain biking accommodation near the Brecon Beacons and Afan Argoed Mountain Bike Center.

We are absolutely delighted to have recently become the top rated holiday rental in Wales on Tripadvisor. Someone asked me how I had managed this. After thinking for a minute all I could answer was "Well every guest is special to me and a holiday must always, always be a treat ".

Here's our very lastest review on Tripadvisor

“Blew us away!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013 NEW

"We have stayed in many places all over the World and this was up there with the best of them! When we booked, we didn't know what to expect, but this place blew all of our expectations out of the water. There simply are no complaints to be made. The cottage is beautiful and every little detail is paid attention too, from flowers on the door, honey, milk, tea. Fiona and Andrew truly make you feel welcome and cared for. We can't wait to return and are already trying to work out dates for our next visit."
