  • "The Granary was ideal for us - no stairs, two loos and a lovely big bath!"

    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. We shall certainly enthuse about our stay which was too short to take in all that the Gower has to offer.

    In a great location to visit all the beautiful beaches on the Gower coast. Huw gave us a warm welcome, and although we didn’t get to meet Caroline, she left us a wonderful welcome pack, including delicious homemade cakes! Would definitely return to this perfect cottage.

  • "The peace and quiet of this delightfully converted property made it the ideal place to relax, as well as being well located to explore the Gower peninsula."

    The owners made us very welcome, with the option of a main meal awaiting us on arrival, backed up by a good welcome pack, including delicious home baking. Having the owners living next door was assuring, if we had needed anything but, although we didn't, our occasional contact found them to be very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about walks, etc. We hope to go again.

  • "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 !

    This makes it very difficult not to miss the turning off the main road. Obvious this is not the fault of either Sykes Cottages or the owners!

  • "The hosts, Caroline and Huw were exceptionally kind, helpful and thoughtful."

    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.

  • "The cottage was very clean, warm and welcoming."

    Top marks for the lovely tray of home baking provided which helped us feel at home the moment we walked in the door. The property is small but we never felt cramped. 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.

    A very comfortable, well equipped, welcoming cottage in a lovely area so close to many beaches. An ideal place to relax and refresh before entering the world again! Many thanks to the owners who continue to uphold your tradition of quality - something which Sykes is well known for. I would recommend the cottage to anyone wanting 'time out' but suspect that bookings will be fast and furious.

    The only negative is having to park at the front and then lug stuff up the side track which is muddy and slippery. Not good for a 70 year old with a new hip! The annoying thing is that there are double gates with parking at the back within the property rear garden, so I don’t know why they couldn’t be opened.

  • "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 a popular pub and 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

SCURLAGE

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, a pub, shop, pharmacy, doctors surgery and take-away, but still retains its sleepy village personality.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Winter
  • Off-season
