5 Bedroom Character Property For Sale in Widegate Cottage, Gower

Widegate Cottage is a charming and traditional cottage that originally belonged to the Penrice Estate. 

Later becoming a part of The Kilvrough Estate and then owned and occupied by The Third Lord Swansea who resided at the property during the 1920’s where he was able to take full advantage of the nine acres of expansive and ancient woodland that accompanies the property. The cottage dates back to the 1700’s and is steeped in fascinating history. The property is situated in the most picturesque setting and benefits from the most splendid views of the surrounding countryside, with woodland views stretching out towards the bay at Pwll Du. The meandering pathways lead through the land alongside Bishopston stream which you can follow down to the beach. With Smugglers Path, Brandy Cove and Highway Farm all within close proximity you can imagine the tales of smuggling, fables and myths, however according to Welsh Folklore it is the fairies that gathered in Lockway Wood which is directly opposite to celebrate the fairy weddings that is the most interesting. Even now during the night time the skylight glistens on the ground giving an enchanting glow to the grounds. Widegate Cottage is nestled between the charming Gower Villages of Kittle and Southgate and set at the end of a quiet country lane. Offering an idyllic and tranquil position which is cocooned by an abundance of natural beauty.
