the sea view

The sea view from Periwinkle Cottage is great – you can see the bay from almost all the rooms, the four poster bed  and the garden terraces. Snuggle up on the windowseat and watch all the activity in the bay where there is always something to see. Look out for the mussel dredger, jet skiers,  the ‘Newts’ at Mumbles Yacht Club in their tiny sailing boats or the huge Swansea to Cork ferry; wind & kite surfers, motorcruisers and yachts all make regular appearances too.
