Welcome to Candyfloss cottage - a cottage made for two. Candyfloss Cottage is situated on a working farm in the heart of the Gower Peninsula.

The cottage is over 300 years old and was once used for housing calves. In later years it doubled up as a stable for a pony called "Candy" and a kennel for the farm sheepdog called "Floss" - that's where the cottage get it's name from. Sadly the building became redundant with modern technology, the bales got bigger, the tractors got bigger and the doorways got smaller.

The cottage is cosy and will sleep two people comfortably in a double bedroom. A travel cot can be supplied on request.

There is a kitchen/diner, with a fitted kitchen, electric cooker, hob and grill, fridge freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster.
The lounge has a sofa bed settee that can be used for up to 2 children, a TV with freeview and a DVD player. The shower room has a shower, wc and wash basin and is suitable for wheelchairs.


There is oil fired central heating throughout the cottage and bed linen is provided. Guests should bring their own towels. The cottage may be suitable for someone with limited mobility. Outside there is parking space and a landscaped patio area with a BBQ. Well behaved pets and responsible owners welcome.

Horse Bed and Breakfast
If you wish to see Gower on horse back and would like to bring your own horses, stabling is available between May and September for an additional fee.

About the farm

The farm is a working farm with cattle and sheep (both commercial and pedigree). We have a farm shop that aims to supply home and locally grown fresh produce, from seasonal fruit and vegetables, to beef, lamb and pork, as well as stocking many traditional Welsh products from cheeses to jams.

Hopefully by the summer we can take you around the animals to our Pedigree Herd of Hereford Cattle, and show you our prize bull, (if he's not out at work or travelling the country visiting agricultural shows). We also we have a flock of Pedigree Jacob sheep just waiting to meet you. We are a working farm and will welcome you with open arms, but sometimes visiting the animals will not be possible. If you feel like a morning off, breakfast is served daily in the coffee shopt that boasts a fine view of the South Gower scenery.

The Village
The village is only a 10 minute walk from the cottage. In the village there is a general store, bakery, post office, letterbox, telephone box, sports club, swimming pool, hairdressers, doctors and a chemist. The local church holds services every other Sunday.

Scurlage is on the main bus routes to Swansea the other Gower villages. The local public house caters mainly for families with children's entertainment during school holidays, but has a varied menu. A more traditionally public house is only 3 miles away. There is also a petrol station within a mile.

Candyfloss Cottage is ideal for :- romantic breaks, walking, hang gliding, canoeing, golfing, horse riding breaks or just a relaxing trip to Gower to get away from everything.
