  • "Cottage was perfect, spotlessly clean and cosy."

    The bed was really comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need. The hosts Caroline and Huw were very friendly, Huw told us if a number of nice walks locally.Thank you so much for the gluten free welcome goodies, they were very much appreciated. Location was ideal for exploring everything the Gower Peninsula has to offer. National Waterfront Museum in Swansea is worth a visit. Good train service from Gowerton (30 minute drive away and free parking). Thank you for a lovely stay.

    I used it as a base for walking the coastal path, and it's location is ideal. The owners are helpful, and left a delicious welcome package. Definitely no complaints, nor any suggestions for improvement. I want to go back to the area to do more walking, and this is where I will stay.

    The owners had thought of everything. It was warm and cosy and all the fittings were of a very high standard. A welcome tray was a lovely bonus. Even though the weather wasn't too good, we enjoyed a really relaxing week.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great area."

    Owners very friendly and have really thought about what their guests need, with kind touches such as a hairdryer, heated drying rack and welcome items on arrival. The kitchen was well equipped with fridge and freezer box, all crockery, cutlery and cookware that you might need as well as salt and pepper. A small supply of tea and coffee was also provided. Wifi worked perfectly and they provided lots of information on local services, walks and attractions which was very helpful. We enjoyed cosy evenings in front of the TV or playing one of the wide selection of games on offer (there are also a number of books and DVDs provided, you could bring your own too). The roll top bath was a great experience after a long (wet) days walking! The only small issues were that there seems to be a little damp in the outside wall of the bedroom, perhaps made worse by the torrential rain we had, and the mattress could be better. I personally don't get on with feather pillows due to my allergies so it might be good to offer foam ones instead if possible. Overall though a very enjoyable stay with some very thoughtful hosts in a most beautiful part of Wales.

    Having informed us prior to their arrival of their food allergies relating to the welcome pack provided, if the guest had also made us aware of their allergies to feather pillows we would of gladly substituted them for foam pillows. Property Owner

    Our hostess had thought of absolutely everything and consequently the cottage was beautifully equipped. Huw and Caroline were very welcoming and could not do enough for us, we so enjoyed the home-made goodies. The location is excellent for visiting the Gower Peninsula, especially as it is close to Rhossili and to the Beach House at Oxwich.

  • "Quiet, small cottage set back from a quiet road and joined to the owners house."

    Very warm and comfy in a fantastic location. Rhossilli beach and The Worm 10 mins away and many other coves/beaches/walks within 20 mins. Only 25 mins to Swansea where we did a larger supermarket shop. Fish & Chips and general store a couple of minutes away. Due to Covid can't advise on Pubs or Restaurants as we self catered. The cottage has a small kitchen but all you could need. Outside is a pleasant garden with seating and a BBQ ( first coals included). Internet available, reasonable, sometimes hesitant ! Lovely 'light pollution' free skies for starry nights! Cows and sheep can be seen and swallows nesting in the barn. Lots of birdsong as so quiet. The cottage has the advantage of a shower AND a huge free standing bath, plenty of hot water and an airier in the large bathroom (which was always warm) to dry clothes etc. There are leaflets and walking books available and also maps. The host Caroline is a mine of local information too, as well as a good cook! (First night evening meal available by arrangement, reasonable price and a lovely welcome tray provided). We found all the information invaluable, there being no Tourist Information nearby. A fantastic holiday base, we were lucky with the weather too, already booked for next year, what else can I say, loved it !

    I had mentioned I was gluten free and we were warmly greeted on arrival with home baked Welsh cakes including an almond and pear gluten free cake for me. A very personal touch. The cottage is beautifully decorated, very clean and has everything you need. There were lots of tips for visiting provided by them and we discovered many beautiful beaches ( Rossilli, Three Cliffs, Port Eynon.) sun flower fields and many scenic walks nearby. We visited the Mumbles twice too. There was a pretty church at Port Eynon, dating from the 6th century where we were warmly welcomed by the congregation and the friendly Rev Justin Davies and his wife on the Sunday. It was a relaxing and refreshing break in South Wales and we send our thanks to all concerned. We found it helpful to do a first shop in Swansea on our way, as the cottage is in a rural area but there is a local store in Scurlage about 5 minutes drive away and a delicious fish and chip shop too. Lovely staff in both.

Most importantly, we both slept well in a comfortable bed. We found it an excellent base from which to explore the Gower for the first time, which did not disappoint with excellent walking close by. If anything the house slightly exceeded our expectations. The owners left us to it, but when I did go next door to offer recompense for having accidentally broken an ornament Caroline was lovely about it and wouldn't take a penny, so thanks again Caroline.

  • "The accommodation was excellent."

    However, visitors need to be aware that in order to reach the village of Scurlage and the Gower coastline beyond on foot it is necessary to walk for 5-10 minutes along a busy A road with no pavement. The one shop in the village is expensive, even charging £1-85 to make withdrawals from the cash machine, therefore visitors should come well stocked with food to last the week. Otherwise, the nearest decent food shops would appear to be 10 miles away in Swansea.

The Cottages At Scurlage Court Farm

A pair of cottages, both looking out across the old farmyard adjacent to the owners` property, offering cosy accommodation. These traditional properties are just a short walk from the heart of the village of Scurlage and just a short distance from the beautiful award-winning beaches of Rhossili. This quaint pair of holiday cottages have been furnished with individual styles with comfort in mind. Well-equipped kitchens, comfy seating and dining areas provide cosy living, perfect to relax in front of the TV after a day enjoying the nearby award-winning beaches. Both cottages benefit from patio/garden areas to enable you to sit and enjoy an alfresco breakfast before heading off to explore the fabulous coastal areas. These Gower cottages benefit from being easily accessible to the coastline with award-winning beaches, fantastic coastal paths, craggy coves and the impressive Worms Head that Rhossili is famous for. The area is ideal for surfing and hang gliding, both of which are very popular within this part of Wales, as is cycling which can also be enjoyed. There are five golf courses within a 10-mile drive of the cottages each providing a different challenge, all with breath-taking views. Slightly further inland is a completely different beauty, pretty little villages sited around village greens such as Reynoldston which has direct access onto Cefn Bryn, considered to be the Back Bone of the Gower with panoramic views and one of the highest view points in the area, offering fantastic walks and a chance to sit a while and watch wild ponies, sheep and cows grazing. A perfect pair of cottages, ideal for either a couple, family or small group looking for a central base, from which to explore the breath-taking beauty of the Gower Peninsula and the South Wales coastline.

About the location


Swansea 14 miles; Rhossili 3.5 miles; Port Eynon 1.5 miles.

Scurlage is a small village, named after the family who built a fortified manor house, although none of the remains of ‘Scurlage Castle’ have survived. This little village is between the popular beachside villages of Rhossili and Port Eynon and is close to the fantastic beaches of the Gower Peninsula including Oxwich Bay. A perfect central location to be a short distance from fantastic coastline and the iconic Worms Head. The little village has various footpaths crisscrossing the area, shop, pharmacy, doctors surgery and take-away, but still retains its sleepy village personality.

Please note: bookings must start or end on a weekday as changeovers cannot be done on a Saturday or Sunday
