About Liz Lucas
The Lucas Family have managed Clover Cliff since 2008 when Ollie and Liz took it over from Ollie's cousin, Patrick and the Robin family. It has been a labour of love as we have made significant improvements fitting double glazing, bringing toilet access indoors (yes indoors!), a new kitchen, new bathroom and hot water system and new storage heaters. The roof has also been renewed and isulated for cosy winter weeks beside the log burner (logs provided!) and the parking area in the field is surfaced to help with access which was sometimes a challenge in wet weather in the past. We aim to provide something that is practical and comfortable but which lets the natural surroundings speak for themselves. Working on this has brought us into contact with such friendly and supportive local people and neighbours. Although we do not live locally we aim to always be available on the end of a phone and have great people who look after the house and grounds in our absence.
Liz Lucas purchased this cottage in 1949
Why Liz Lucas chose Rhossili
The house was built by Ollie’s grandparents to give their children close contact with the natural world away from the noise and pollution of London. They were passionate about Gower and were involved in the beginnings of the Gower Society and in the campaign to have it made an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Ollie’s mother was staying at Clover Cliff when he was born and the small murals painted on the plaster of the sitting room were done by his grandfather, mother and aunts. He felt the place was in his bones and although he only lived there a short time, loved wandering the cliffs and beaches as a boy. Now it is not only our business project and families holiday home but also an inspiration for artists like Ollie. Sadly, Ollie died unexpectedly in 2015 but his wife, Liz and their children and grand children continue to enjoy all the activities that Clover Cliff and the Gower has to offer and continue to enable others to do the same.
What makes this cottage unique
Fantastic sea views, seclusion, slowing down, chilling out, contemplating the changing light and sea, watching birds, sharing our love of the natural outdoors with our children and grandchildren without having to get in a car first. Walking to Mewslade beach, surfing and making sandcastles, barbecues on the shingle at Ramsgrove and walking our dog, Ernie. Finding a secret place to sit alone on the cliffs. Walking to Hillend for lunch over Rhossili Down and back along Rhossili beach. The walk to the end of the Worm when the tide is right. Listening to winter storms outside beside the cosy wood burner. Friendly neighbours. Drawing in Mewslade valley (and just about everwhere else!) Waking up and watching the light change over The Worm as the sun comes up with a cup of tea in bed! Evening meals or a BBQ and wine looking at the sunset. Chasing rabbits - I never caught one (Ernie the dog). Please be aware that we have no television or wifi and for some mobile phone networks, the signal can be variable. A technology free holiday!
