Holiday Rental House
Riversdale Cottage has been fully renovated to the highest standard with solid oak finishings throughout, offering guests luxury and homely accommodation. The quaint one bedroom cottage in the style of a dutch barn is located less than a mile, about a 15 minute walk or a few minutes drive from the popular village of Mumbles well known for its boutique shops, restaurants, castle and beaches. Set well back from the road in tranquil gardens next to a stream, the cottage has been finished to an exceptional standard. A balcony at the rear of the property gives you access to the patio and a peaceful area to relax in, with table and chairs and a brick built barbecue. The lounge has French doors that open up onto the balcony where you can listen to the relaxing sound of the birdsong and brook.
