Middle Cottage - Self catering holiday cottage in Llanmadoc, Gower, Swansea, The Gower Peninsula, Wales - Sleeps 5
The Gower Peninsular, Britain's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is renowned for its magnificent coastline popular with walkers and other outdoor enthusiasts.
Middle cottage is a charming holiday cottage located in an idyllic position on the village green at the top of the village of Llanmadoc overlooking Llanmadoc/Whitford beach.

Walkers too will not be disapointed as the cottage is situated on the edge of some of Gower's best walks.
The cottage offers comfortable cosy holiday accommodation which is ideal for either a summer holiday where you can relax in the garden, enjoy eating alfresco on the terrace or stroll to the beach or a winter break where you can snuggle up in front of the fire and watch the flames flicker.

Feb 13th – 16th 2009
Brilliant weekend. Even the weather was kind! A walkers paradise with a fabulous cottage to come home to at the end of the day. Everything you could wish for in a break, including the romantic candlelit Valentine’s meal! Thanks for everything, Sue and Craig Becketta.
Feb 16th – 20th 2009
Thank you for the curtte little cottage ! I think what left the village down was the lack of youths & also activities to do in the day, not every one likes long walks! We’re really think the area we were in is haunted, we went for a midnight walk & were taking pictures & we came across one picture we took and it was a GHOST! No joke. Really scary. THANKS Hope you enjoyed your fish and chips in the Britannia ! (we did) (Written by our teenagers!!) Great to get them out of their usual environment!)

We have had a lovely stay, great weather, walks & food, what more could you ask for. Beautiful cottage, very nice fire, and great to have SKY+, See you soon as we will be back, in 2010, Joanne and Ian Keene (N Somerset.)

We’ve enjoyed our stay despite dodgy weather. Great to have somany walks from the door – up the hill and round the to Broughton Bay and round to the Castle. (Weobley) If we’d been fitter we could have walked to Worm’s Head but a bad back and an old dog have held us back! Thanks very much, Cath Tom and Tara from Sheffield.
March 21st to 4th April
Lovely and comfortable base for Theo’s first Holiday, and for the first place he stood up and crawled!! We were really lucky with the weather even managing to picnic on the beach. The cottage provided everything for a group of ranging form 7 months to 85 years. Could want or need. Thanks you and hope to be back, June, Lucy, and Theo McKerrow. And Meg and Alfie (paw) who particularly enjoyed the garden and wood burning stove. XX
2.5.09 We’re have a really great holiday here. The weather has been kind. Lovely blue skies. Wonderful walks and beaches. The cottage is very comfortable every thing we needed and more. Thank you both Dai and Heather, Pam, Line and Milo (paw).
