Along the open expanse of Cefn Bryn, past grazing sheep and ponies, on the outskirts of the village of Reynoldston, is The Granary, set in a stunning location with uninterrupted panoramic views over pastureland and Rhossili Downs.
The Granary forms part of a Welsh Long House which dates back to 1725. No longer a working farm it has more recently has undergone sensitive restoration using traditionally sourced materials, taking due consideration of Gower vernacular. Such has been the attention to detail, the work has been recognised by the Gower Society, Civic Trust for Wales and Lord Mayors Design Awards. Thoughtful considered fittings ensures aesthetic balance of character and simple pared back minimalist living.
The mature gardens, bursting with vibrant colour in the spring and summer are a delight with several secluded seating areas to settle with a book, listen to bird song or sip a glass of wine and contemplate the view.
The open air swimming pool is an added dimension – be it an energising morning swim or a cooling dip on a hot day. The pool is a shared facility with the owners who live in the adjoining Farm House. Secure storage is available for walking gear, surf boards, bikes and golf clubs.
Located in the heart of Gower, step out onto extensive walking routes across Cefn Bryn toward King Arthurs Stone – the highest point of Gower with with a 360 vista giving way to views to the Brecon Beacons, over the salt marshes of North Gower to the Pembrokeshire Coast and across the Bristol Channel to Devon.
The local pub and the Post Office are a short stroll away. Numerous Blue Flag beaches are a 5 – 10 minute drive away whilst the maritime City of Swansea and the renowned village of Mumbles is just 20 minutes away.
The Granary is a great location from which to explore the outstanding Gower Peninsula or just relax chill and de-stress – it really is a special escape.
