Welcome to Our Gower Self Catering Holiday Cottage

Our self catering holay cottage is situated on a very quiet no through lane on the outskirts of Llanrhidian village on the north coast of the Gower peninsula. Its rural location and magnificent uninterrupted views, across open fields and the salt marshes of the Burry inlet and Loghour Estuary, provide a relaxing and tranquil setting. Standing in its own grounds, Hill House sleeps nine in four bedrooms and, with its homely ambience and large secluded gardens, it provides ideal holiday accommodation for the extended family. Its also ideal for the walking enthusiast as the Gower peninsula section of the Wales Coast Path runs along the lane alongside the cottage and there are many other near by foot paths. We are able to accommodate pets by prior arrangement, provide short breaks outside peak times and the accommodation is available all year round. Full details of the accommodation and facilities provided can be viewed on our Explore Hill House page.


The Gower Peninsula, Swansea and Llanrhidian

The Gower peninsla s located on the south Wales coast. It was designated as the UK's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1956. This long AONB status means that it's splendid scenery has not been spoilt by over development and commercialisation. Gower is known for its coastline, popular with walkers and outdoor enthusiasts, especially surfers. The Welsh writer Wynford Vaughan Thomas called the Gower peninsula "a secret that people hug to themselves". You can see some of what the Gower has to offer visitors by viewing our interactive map and reading the information provided in our Explore Gower page.

The city of Swansea is the gateway to the Gower Peninsula. It has an extensive waterfront promenade that stretching for 5 miles alongside the sandy shoreline of Swansea Bay to the Mumbles pier. With an abundance of award winning parks, gardens and other attractions it has much to offer holiday makers. Swansea is home to the world's first passenger railway service, Wales's largest indoor market, Wales's tallest building, Wales's oldest museum, Wales's newest museum and the birthplace of Wales's best known poet Dylan Thomas. You can see some of Swansea holiday attractions by viewing our interactive map and reading the information provided in our Explore Swansea page.

Llanrhidiane lies on the north coast of the Gower peninsula about 10 miles from the City of Swansea. It is one of the oldest and best preserved village on the Gower peninsula. It is a very quiet village with virtually no through trafic and the center of the village is a designated conservation area. The 13th Century churchm Welcome to Town and the Dolphin public houses are only 100 yards from the Hill House's doorstep. The filling station (Herons Way) at the top of the village stocks the essential groceries, has an in house bakery, news agents, off licence, free ATM, DVD rental and a Post Office. You can see what llanrhidian has to offer by viewing the interactive map and reading the information provided on our Explore Llanrhidian page. With all these amenities within the village, Hill House is the ideal self catering holiday cottage for exploring Gower's beaches, footpaths and the many other attractions on the peninsula, in the city of Swansea and Mumbles area.

Google maps directions

Check out the route for the mortoway (M4 Junction 47) to Hill House.


You may think the its a quicker route  to leave the M4 at Junction 44 and travel along the A   towards Swansea. It is a shorter distance but traffic delays can double the journey time.

Our stay at Hill House, Gower was fantastic. The house was clean, comfortable, welcoming and homely. It had everything we needed. The setting is so peaceful with amazing views and fantastic walks just out the door, as well as amazing beaches a short drive away. The hosts, Liz and Wyn were very welcoming and helped with any request. It was a superb holiday and I can't wait to return soon.
