The pet friendly ‘Chalet at Cow Corner’ is an eclectic, book lovers retreat. Small, but perfectly formed, this 2 bedroomed chalet bungalow is tucked between Limeslade Bay and the Mumbles Cricket Club with easy access to the Gower Peninsula and a minutes walk to the world renowned Wales Coastal Path. Ideal for those wishing to be near the village of Mumbles and the beautiful bays of Langland and Caswell, this bungalow comes equipped with everything you might need for a perfect getaway.
The chalet consists of entrance porch, with toys and puzzles, the perfect place to dry your wet weather gear and discard your walking boots. The porch is also where you will also find a cold bag, freezer packs, thermos flask, plastic food containers, beach shelters, picnic rugs, umbrellas, walking sticks, hot water bottles, dog bowl, shopping bags and other beach paraphernalia. Basically, if you can't find it, it's probably in the porch!
Please remove excessively muddy boots before entering the cosy sitting room with television, DVD player, CDs, books and maps. Designed for sprawling and relaxing, there is also a Nintendo Wii console with various games for the family to enjoy. I’m told that it may be of interest to point out that we have now upgraded to a SMART TV.
The fully equipped galley kitchen is situated between the sitting and dining areas - well placed so that the cook is never excluded from whatever is going on in either area. There is a washing machine, slimline dish washer, full sized cooker, with ceramic hob and fridge freezer, not to mention a slow cooker and all the various pots and pans you may need.
The double bedroom although small, contains a full size double bed and a generous amount of storage space, you will also find additional blankets in the upper cupboards should they be needed.
The bunk room has a toy chest with more books and toys for rainy days, there may also be some dressing up stuff, depending on what's been left by visiting grandchildren.
The bathroom consists of WC and full sized shower.
The combi boiler provides instant hot water and the central heating is linked to the thermostat in the sitting room.
Outside patio with table, chairs and sun umbrella are also available for your exclusive use.
Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Iceland and Waitrose all deliver (admittedly I have never actually used Waitrose, but I’ve seen the vans 😊)
There are no cows at the Pet Friendly ‘Chalet at Cow Corner’ the name is derived from its position relative to the local cricket ground.
This is a quiet cul de sac with a mixture of residential and holiday homes. The Mumbles Cricket Club (MCC) hosts many social events throughout the Cricket Season, and visitors are always welcome to make use of the facilities. The nearby Village of Mumbles is well within walking distance with its many pubs, restaurants and boutique shops, although some guests might prefer to take the more scenic route back via the bays of Bracelet and Limeslade in order to avoid the steep ‘short cut’ back home.
The Gower Peninsula is a short drive away, in fact the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty starts right opposite the front door of the Chalet at the boundary of the field across the road and when the breeze is lively you can hear the Mixen Bell clanging it’s warning from the Mixen Sands off the Cherrystones Reef out in the Bay.
At the top of the cul de sac you reach the cliff top path, this is a perfect spot to sit and watch the seals at low tide, the memorial benches are there for all to enjoy. From here turn right for the famous surfing beach of Langland and the lesser known Rotherslade and Crab Reef, or left for Limeslade, Bracelet and the Mumbles Pier and Lifeboat Station.
The Gower Peninsula is now a ‘Dark Skies’ destination and as there is no street lighting here, it’s the perfect place from which to view the constellations - better still, on starry nights, take yourself up onto the cliff with a drink of your choice and gaze out across the bay. Watch out for badgers though!
