Bryn-y-môr Cottage (literally hill of the sea) tells you the whole story in a name. Set on the lower slope of Llanmadoc Down it looks down onto limestone cliffs and sea at Broughton Bay to the north and to Rhossili Bay to the west. The cottage has been fully renovated by the owners who are at hand to make sure their visitors have a home from home experience in a place that offers what surely must be some of the best views in Britain.
Step inside – everything you’d expect and more
As soon as you enter Bryn-y-môr Cottage the space and the views will amaze you. The cleverly-configured living area, bedrooms and bathrooms are arranged on this upper level (at which you’ll enter with no stairs) to take full advantage of the wonderful position.
The living area has high ceilings, exposed beams and oak floors. You can hunker down on the two large sofas and take in the uninterrupted coastal views through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows or watch TV if you can bear to take your eyes off the outside. Cosy up around the gas-fired wood-burning-effect stove if summer evenings are a little chilly or you just want to cwtch up on winter days. Make yourself a tea or coffee in the additional mini-kitchen area just at hand.
On this level too are the 3 bedrooms: 1 double with ensuite; 1 twin; and 1 single all with luxury bed linen, fitted wardrobes and views to die for. There’s a luxury 4-piece family bathroom with bath complete with a supply of white fluffy towels. A cot is available if there are little grown-ups in tow.
Downstairs, there’s a beautiful dining area that seats six adjacent to a fully fitted timber kitchen equipped with everything the very best of cooks might need for catering and entertaining.
“Many thanks. This is the best holiday accommodation we have ever had. Everything we needed – clean – cosy – beautiful views.”

Step outside – 360 degree views
Open up the double doors from the living area and you’re out onto a fully paved patio area and lawn where we’ve made ready all you might need for outside living. There’s even a sun house for your own use or for the kids to use as their own den.
Dine alfresco at the table with benches. Use the BBQ and the loungers and parasols. Sit on one of the many benches and watch the sun go down over the bay with a glass of wine in hand at no extra charge.
Forget about the car for a while if you like. Open the garden gate straight onto the slopes of Llanmadoc Down where you can pick up the track that leads to the beach in less than five minutes. When you arrive, you’ll know why children call this the gate to the secret garden.
