Description from owner


Stormy Castle is one of South Wales' leading self-catering holiday homes ideal for groups of up to 14 guests. Think superb location just ten minutes walk from the beach, tremendous views, six acres private land, Welsh ponies, barbecues at sunset and short walks across the fields to the village pub the King's Head, at the heart of Llangennith village. Stormy is lovingly taken care of and invariably guests find themselves returning on a yearly basis.

Activities? You are spoilt for choice: long walks, cycling, pony trekking on the beach, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, paragliding, fishing, boats trips to see seals; all on your doorstep.

Overlooking the Westerly tip of the Gower peninsula, the first area in Britain to be designated by the National Trust as an area of "oustanding natural beauty", guests will find the house and its annex, just a few metres away, very comfortable and fully equipped. It has a reading room, conservatory, four bedrooms in the main house with two further bedrooms in the annex. It also boasts a large kitchen with a table that seats 14 and a spacious adjoining living room.

Over the past four years of operation we have welcomed groups of walkers, surfers, large family gatherings celebrating special birthday milestones, cyclists and couples looking to escape from London for the weekend. Guests have travelled from as far as the USA, Malaysia, Dubai, Switzerland and locally too!

The perfect holiday in an outstanding location. It's also very much a family home; we return every Summer with our four young children to enjoy Stormy...

We hope you will enjoy the experience too!

Helen and Tom Hickey
