Welcome to Thistleboon and Periwinkle & Cockleshell Cottages in Mumbles
Mumbles villageOur holiday home venture in Mumbles is a family affair.  Having been brought up just a few miles away, outings to the village and the glorious beaches were regular events but when relatives moved to Mumbles, we just had to come too! After a major refurbishment and a four star grading from the Welsh Tourist Board, we were delighted to be able to offer Periwinkle Cottage – a charming fishermans cottage tucked away on the end of a sheltered terrace with panoramic views over the bay and a pleasant stroll down to the village.

We were really enjoying running our self catering enterprise so when Thistleboon became available, we started work.   Another total renovation of house and garden followed and soon we were welcoming guests who tell us they love both the property and the fabulous walks that start on the doorstep.  Just five minutes away from Periwinkle the bungalow is in a great location on the edge of Mumbles Head and with a flat garden too, it is ideal for guests of all ages.
Cockleshell Cottage which is next door but one to Periwinkle was our latest project.  Keen to have another cottage with an exceptional sea view as well as wanting to offer two cottages to families & friends looking to holiday together, builders hats were donned again and the whole cottage was gutted.   It was great to renovate and reveal its character to guests who enjoy their stays there as much as we do.
