PERIWINKLE COTTAGE & COCKLESHELL COTTAGE offer quality accommodation with private parking for a coastal holiday for couples and families. Cosy, tastefully furnished fisherman's cottages, set on the hillside with panoramic views over Swansea Bay and Mumbles Head and within walking distance of the amenities of Mumbles. Sited in a quiet, sheltered location both cottages are furnished in contemporary country style with a smattering of vintage decorative items, carefully designed with an attention to detail, offering a relaxing haven of calm seaside colours and beautiful sea views.
