Castle Hill Cottage offers spacious and characterful accommodation which has been lovingly furnished throughout to provide a very good standard of finish. Enjoy a glass of wine in front of the wood burner, which acts as a focal point during a cosy evening in, or utilise the spacious galley-style kitchen to prepare a special meal before serving up in the separate formal dining room, which retains the original fireplace. All bedrooms are spacious, and have been thoughtfully presented with a high level of comfort in mind. Show more
Next door you can step back in time and visit the ruined castle dating back to the early 12th century, along with the Iron Age earthworks still visible to this day, and which once controlled an important river crossing of the Towy. Enjoy an early morning walk to discover this castle and its epic views overlooking the sand flats and the mouth of th River Towy.
Castle Hill Cottage is a 5-minute walk from Llansteffan where you can stroll on the golden sandy beach, build sandcastles with your children or search rock pools for crabs and limpets. Within the village is a plethora of shops, restaurants and cafés, where you can discover local produce, home cooked food and local ale all in walking distance. In the summer season you can take a boat trip from the beach over to the very quaint hamlet of Ferryside on the opposite coastline, which once was a fishing village.
A highly recommended morning stroll is travelling north from the cottage along the track to Scotts Bay, a truly wonderful and sublime sandy beach with amazing views across the bay towards the Gower Peninsula. Due to its location, it is normally nice and quiet - the ideal place to escape to! Keep an eye out for St Anthony’s Well, which was a place of pilgrimage for hundreds of years, hidden away just off the beach. Locally there is sailing, water sports, golf, fishing and riding available which is sure to entertain the most active of families. Oakwood, Wales’ largest theme park, and Folly Farm Zoo are within a 45-minute drive. Beach 500 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.
