  • "Lovely house with plenty of space for a family group."

    Large enclosed garden is great. A perfect base for exploring the Gower

  • "We loved the house."

    It is very family friendly and has an enclosed sunny garden which we all enjoyed. All information provided was useful including ideas for walks, beaches and pubs. The location, within walking distance of fantastic beaches, is great and the house is very well equipped. We had a really wonderful holiday. Thank you.

  • "Everything about this property was spot on for us."

    We try to get away with our dog every 3 months and book holiday homes all over UK. We have an anxious rescue dog, so deliberately choose detached properties in quiet areas so he can relax as well as us. He hardly barked all week and thoroughly enjoyed the enclosed garden. This time, there was plenty of room to invite our grown up kids and their partners too. We rarely find a property that is so spacious, has fantastic views, secure garden south facing garden, walking distance to the beach and excellent pub around the corner - that’s served really good food daily. The house has a fully equipped kitchen, with plenty of crockery and cutlery for cooking at home as well. Sian, the homeowner provided us with excellent information and recommendations of where to visit a month before we left, which was really helpful. There is no local shop in the village, but we knew to be prepared and bring food essentials with us.

    Local area has lots of walks. Be prepared to meet sheep and ponies on the village roads (explains the cattlegrids) and take a torch as there are not many street lights.

    Perfect location for us and a beautiful sea view from the main bedroom. The house is spacious but cosy and very well equipped. It would be enhanced by the addition of mirrors in the bedrooms. The garden was perfect for the dogs.

  • "It was our 2nd visit to Atlantic Haven so we knew the house and location would be beautiful!"

    Absolutely loved our stay, 5th holiday in Llangennith, one of our favourite places. The house has so much attention to detail, games, books, lots of sofa space and an unbelievably well stocked kitchen. Very spacious for our group of 7. The garden and deck are fabulous with huge BBQ. Great views from the lounge and upstairs. I would recommend taking a car that is not too low as the drive is quite steep and we did get our car stuck at one point. Would definitely recommend this holiday home, we all loved it!

  • "We had a lovely stay at 1 Atlantic Haven."

    The property was very clean, spacious and made a very comfortable base to explore the Gower peninsular. It had some thoughtful touches, games, maps, and books. We appreciated the very well equipped kitchen and large fridge freezer. We also appreciated the use of the washing machine and tumble dryer. My adult children loved how near to the pub it was. The footpath next to the house led us up to some lovely walks. The only thing I would change would be carpet in the bathroom, it however appeared spotless. One thing I wish I had realised was the rise up and down the drive. I managed to scrape the bottom of my car when I turned left onto the drive, so quickly learnt to turn around at the end of the close and drive on from the other direction. We would highly recommend this accommodation.

    As soon as you open the front door Atlantic Haven welcomes you, so spacious beautifully laid out with everything you need .The place was so clean and the view from the main bed room was fantastic .Garden laid out well with decking and seating .The beaches and walks excellent and just as recommended . The Kings Head a place to go whether dinning in or Takeaway. Use of the double garage, our car stayed in there and only used once for the whole week.

    The drive was a little awkward for two cars but we managed. The heating was adequate but wondered about the immersion being on all the time as there were no instructions for that. We were lucky with reasonably good weather and loved the surrounding beaches. A couple of woodland walks not too far away were glorious. Thank you for a very happy stay.

    I'm glad you had a nice time! Thanks sian Property Owner

  • "The house was just as described."

    It's a large property, with plenty of space, even on rainy days. We were a family of 7, with 3 generations, including 3 teenagers and 2 dogs and all had a good time. There were far more useful items at the property than most we have stayed at e.g. plenty of plates, pots and pans for all kinds of meals, condiments, plenty of dishwasher tabs etc. There were lots of board games, the living room is lovely with lots of windows and light even on gloomy days. Communication with the owner was very good and she kindly decorated the house foe Christmas, so we had a very special family Christmas at the house. A bit far from a supermarket and not many activities nearby during winter months other than walking. We knew that and wanted that, so we're happy. I can highly recommend the house and the location, near beautiful Rhossili Bay, with lots of walks and a good pub on the doorstep.

    We are very happy that you had a good Christmas at the house. Happy new year! Sian Property Owner

  • "Very nice house, comfortable stay."

    Great communication by the owner, who is very helpful. Not sure there is space for two cars on the drive, they would have to be tiny (wasn't a problem for us with one car).Also worth mentioning there are a few steps throughout, including a few from the drive down to the front door (for which a handrail attached to the garage would be useful for those with dodgy knees etc. Otherwise great, recommended.

    We are glad you had a good time. A hand rail is in place now. Thanks, Sian Property Owner

  • "An amazing property, we loved it in every sense from the comfort of the rooms which added to a very relaxed atmosphere, and a feeling of seclusion in a residential area was great."

    Location wise it was perfect, from the short walk to Rhossili beach for surf lessons, or proximity to several longer walks on the various coastal path walks for our dog walking sessions. With a pub on your doorstep and campsite shop and cafe a short walk away you can't ask for more. I cannot raise any faults and would have no hesitation in coming back.

  • "We very much enjoyed our stay - there were a couple of issues when we first arrived (ensuite toilet did not flush and some lightbulbs did not work/no replacements available) but we contacted the owner and the problems were attended to promptly which was much appreciated."

    Overall the house is a beautiful place with excellent space for large families to spend time together in comfort. One thing we did find difficult was the lack of curtains and blinds in some of the bedroom windows & veluxes as this meant the rooms became light as the sunrose making it difficult (for children & adults) to have a bit if a lie in - this must be even worse in summer when dawn is earlier. Also one of the bungalows behind the property has a very bright security light which seems to come on regularly throughout the night (maybe animals setting it off??) and shines into the master bedroom through the uncurtained windows. But these are only minor issues, and we would certainly recommed the property to friends and family.
