Rosedale is a secluded detached cottage nestled behind the dunes of Three Cliffs Bay close to the village of Parkmill. This charming cottage, built around an original 1920’s holiday chalet (lounge and bunk room) is located on the highly sort after Sandy lane, a community originally built as an area of holiday cottages for residents of Swansea at the start of the 20th Century. Now the area has an eclectic mix of timber frame chalets, some Scandinavian in style. The property sits on the edge of Pennard golf club and the only building between you and the beach at Three Cliffs bay is the beautiful ruins of Pennard castle.

Now the area has an eclectic mix of timber frame chalets, some Scandinavian in style. The property sits on the edge of Pennard golf club and the only building between you and the beach at Three Cliffs bay is the beautiful ruins of Pennard castle. After driving down the bumpy unmade road as you enter the property from the rear down the grass path you could be in the middle of nowhere. There is a patio with seating and a picnic style bench with parasol, BBQ, and fire pit available. Enter the cottage through the kitchen one of our favourite rooms, with a cute pot belly stove in the fireplace and a dining table overlooking the patio. Through to the lounge, which seats five (other chairs available in the bedrooms to bring through) tips a nod to the heritage of the building but has TV, Blu-ray, wifi and Docking station and a good collection of DVD's should you need to put your feet up. From the lounge: The second double bedroom - with a slight psychedelic style, has a double bed, hanging space, chest of drawers, chair and bedside table. The bunk room - a bit more subdued and beach hut styled, has a a bunk with a pull out double bottom bed (so you could sleep seven if you don't mind getting cozy). Wardrobe and two chests of drawers. Through from the bunk room is the master bedroom with a double bed, large chest of drawers, hanging space and a bed side drawers and chair. All of the bedrooms have power outlets with USB ports so there is no arguing about who can charge their phone. Also off the lounge is the door to the utility area with a washing machine and dishwasher. You will also find a travel cot, high chair and other useful things like the ironing board (joy). From the utility is the bathroom with a bath, shower, toilet and sink. The Utility opens up to an area of undeveloped land with a path to the pub! The property is all on one story but there are steps between rooms due to slightly different levels as the property has been built in stages over time. Outside there is the patio (which appears to have its own microclimate) ,a second small patio to the side and a gravelled area. There is a wild area of garden below, which you are welcome to explore, but this area has been left to nature (you may discover the fox holes) and children should be supervised. Shop, doctors, library, health centre and pub all within 10 minutes walk. Bird hospital, horse riding and other activities very close by. Three cliffs bay and Pobbles beach walking distance and many other beautiful beaches a short drive. Swansea is only 8 miles away offering all of the attractions of a modern city and many beach side attractions. This is a lovely quirky cottage with an interesting history (it got hot water for the first time 6 months ago) and idilic setting. Ideal for golfers, surfers, walkers, birdwatchers, amateur historians and people just wanting somewhere to chill. If you are looking for a minimalistic modern place to stay this may not be for you, but if you want a bit of welsh charm in a wild, creative setting then maybe it is...More

Lovely cottage and great location for the 2 of us and our 2 dogs. In our opinion the Cottage suits 4 rather than 6 if all adults as kitchen and Lounge is quite small. That said we do love it there and look forward to...More

About the neighbourhood
Three Cliffs Bay is a 20mins walk from the cottage. The beach is not accessible by road and the path not suitable for pushchairs or the infirm, but a beautiful walk to a beach that doesn't get very crowded. there are other beaches within 10 mins drive with beachside parking, for those who struggle with accessibility, including Caswell Bay and Oxwich Bay.
How to get there
Traveling through Pennard on the Pennard Road, turn right onto Linkside drive, opposite library and health centre. Turn left immediately down an unmade road, this is Sandy Lane. Travel along Sandy Lane (very bumpy) until you reach the hand painted sign for the Sandy Lane community. Pull off the road to the right into the space provided next to the sign (or park on the opposite side of the road) and you have arrived. Follow the path to the gate to enter the property. Or From the A4067 in Parkmill just past the Gower Inn on your right, turn left up a single lane road, drive to the top and bear right onto what looks like a wide footpath. Follow round to the rght into Sandy Lane and the cottage is the first on your right.
