The property

Nestled in the community of Crofty in Swansea is this delightful, detached house of Ludgate.

Resting on the Gower Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, whilst also being close to a range of beaches and the River Loughor, Ludgate makes for a wonderful base for a family of six's getaway.

After parking in one of two off-road spaces, take in your quaint surroundings and head inside to be welcomed by a sitting room hosting seating for all to unwind on as you watch a movie on the TV.

Across the way is the living/dining room, where a gas fire warms up the room, making for an inviting spot to relax or dine in.

The kitchen is home to everything a budding chef needs to make mouth-watering meals for all the family to enjoy, along with the essential small appliances.

The utility is situated next to the kitchen and is served by a handy washing machine, meaning you don't need to venture far your laundry facilities.

After a day out in this lovely region, choose between three well-presented bedrooms, including two twins and a double.

The family bathroom has been designed with relaxation in mind, with its bath offering up soothing soaks after an excursion-filled day, and its rainfall shower over that will refresh you in the mornings.

The garden is a superb spot to soak up the sun, with a lawn for the kids and furry companions to play on whilst you enjoy a refreshing drink on the patio.

The property enjoys a prime location, with a shop and pub situated less than a mile away from the property, along with the Gower Brewery where you can embark on a guided tour and savour a drink at the Brewery Tap afterward.

Crofty is on the National Trust owned salt march side of the estuary, which is where salt marsh lamb comes from.

The marsh is a short walk through the village and is home to wild horses.

It’s a keen spot for nature lovers and bird watchers in particular, as it faces the wetlands which is on the other side of the estuary.

Penclawdd, where there’s a supermarket, an ice cream parlour, The Estuary Bar, a cafe and various take-aways, is very close by.

The Gower AONB is packed with beaches for you to make the most of, such as Broughton Bay and its enticing, Blue Pool, the extensive sands of Rhossili Bay and Oxwich Bay, as well as Worm's Head, a nature reserve enjoying panoramic sea views and rugged cliffs.

For a day out with a difference, travel to Swansea with its Castle, Waterfront Museum, stadium and ample more attractions to keep you entertained, along with a beach and the Penllergare Valley Woods resting nearby for those wanting to take in those gorgeous views.

Burry Port, Llanelli and Mumbles aren't far and hosts even more coastal delights for you to discover including lovely seafront restaurants and a range of independent galleries and shops, whilst plenty of picturesque settlements within the AONB provide quaint outings for all the family.

There is so much fun waiting to be had at Ludgate!
