Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


This family-run hotel and restaurant is in the Bishopston Valley, within a short drive of the Gower Peninsula's pretty villages, secluded beaches and coastal beauty spots. 

The pubs and eateries of Mumbles, which is considered the gateway to the Gower, are around a 10-minute drive from the hotel. There are plenty of walking trails in the Gower, which was Britain's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. One such walk, described as "challenging" by the National Trust, takes in the Bishopston Valley before reaching Pwll Du Bay, one of the Gower's most remote beaches. More accessible beaches, such as Caswell Bay, which is popular with surfers and families, are just a short drive from the hotel. Swansea, Wales's second largest city, is just six miles away.

The hotel's restaurant and bar are called Dylan's in homage to the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. The restaurant uses fresh local ingredients where possible to create a seasonal menu of dishes. Some of the vegetables and herbs used in the restaurant are grown in the kitchen garden. Images of the poet and his wife Caitlin decorate the walls of the smart contemporary dining room. There's a conservatory, a terrace that overlooks the front garden, and a tiered grassed garden with tables and chairs to the rear of the hotel. Dylan's Bar offers an extensive drinks menu including ciders and real ales.

The individually designed rooms have creature comforts such as free Wi-Fi and hair straighteners. Some have private terraces. There are nine rooms in the main house and three separate chalet-style lodges. The hotel is family friendly and dogs are allowed in the lodge rooms.
