About Gill Swain
We 'discovered' Burry Port in 2013 and moved here in 2016. We looked around for a property and a project that we could turn into holiday accommodation and found this lovely mid terrace cottage in need of some updating. We do hope you'll book with us and enjoy Burry Port and your holiday here, whether you're looking for beaches, woodlands, mountains, relaxation or adventure, we have it all here in South Wales.
Gill Swain purchased this Cottage in 2017

A beautiful, well presented cottage with well thought out little extras

A true Home away from Home
Wonderfully located property in lovely Burry Port. There is nothing the hosts haven’t considered or provided. From egg cups to wind up torches, milk in the fridge to a travel cot. Everything was on hand. Great directions & instructions. My only complaint was that we didn’t stay long enough. Without doubt, We will be back!
Burry Port has a car boot sale every Saturday from March through to the end of September, weather permitting. It is held on the green to the front of the cottage, cars are able to set up from 8am and it often lasts until 1pm.
