Welcome to Hill House Gower cottage
Before booking a stay at any Gower cottage you should check that the quality of the self catering accommodation has been verified by an independent assessment body. Hill House is certified through the Visit Wales grading scheme and you can rest assured that it will provide you with a comfortable ‘home from home’ for your stay on the Gower peninsula. We have been welcoming guests to Hill House since 2006 and we try our utmost to ensure that the cottage is prepared to the highest standard for all our guests.
Standing in its own grounds, with extensive well kept gardens, Hill House is fully equipped to accommodate up to nine adults and one infant in four large, airy bedrooms. The cottage is dog friendly and there is an unlimited broadband wi-fi connection. Hill House is available for hire throughout the year and with its double glazing, gas fired central heating and open fire it provides a snug haven during the autumn and winter months. Short breaks of two, three or four nights are available during the low and mid season.
Located within the Gower peninsula’s heartland, on a very quiet no through lane on the outskirts of Llanrhidian village, Hill House provides easy access to all of Gower’s bays, beaches and coves. There are magnificent uninterrupted views, to the north and the west, across open fields and the salt marshes of the Burry inlet and Loghour Estuary. From the south and west facing terrace you can enjoy the magnificent Gower peninsula sunsets. The gardens provide a relaxing and tranquil environment and the large, enclosed, secluded, south facing lawn provides a sheltered sun trap.
