Mumbles is a beautiful and sought after village, which is just “a stone’s throw” from the sea front and the famous Oystermouth Castle, built in the 12th Century by the Normans.

A traditional fishing village famous for its colourful cottages and promenade walks, Mumbles was voted as the best place to live in Wales by the Sunday Times in 2018 and continues to attract tourists from all over the world. It boasts a superb selection of boutiques and restaurants, a bustling village and beautiful coastline whilst sitting on the doorstep to Britain’s first Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Gower. Whether it is world famous beaches or stunning rural countryside, Gower has it all. Popular with walkers, surfers and holiday makers, it is made up of small villages and hamlets and covers roughly 70 square miles in area.
