About the owner: We are a professional couple who now have a little more leisure time away from the office. Gower View Penthouse is our family holiday home, we live in Birmingham and so could not be further from the sea. We visit regularly to enjoy the peace and quiet as well as all the area has to offer. We have 2 married daughters and a 3 year old granddaughter, both families love coming here.
Why the Owner Chose Llandeilo: We decided to buy Gower View Penthouse in May 2007. We viewed it on a wet and windy day but still fell in love with the penthouse and spectacular view! When staying there we enjoy golf, walking, cycling, tennis, the beautiful beaches and the great selection of restaurants nearby. Whatever the weather there is so much to do in the area and so many places to visit.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The view is breathtaking and constantly changing.
The sunsets are spectacular.
In just a few steps you can be on the beach or heading along the traffic free coastal path on foot or by bike.
The Gower Peninsula, Pembrokeshire and the Brecon Beacons National Park are all within easy reach.
The Penthouse is a 10-15 minute drive from the M4, it takes us just over 2 hours 30minutes to drive from Birmingham via the Heads of the Valley road - a beautiful route. There is a new out of town shopping centre Trostre Parc just a 8 minute drive away which provides all the shopping you could want. Tesco, Asda and Morrisons are all within in 10 minute drive and some guests arrange a home delivery before their stay.
