The first school in the village I can find a record of was held in a stall belonging to the Ship Inn, opposite it and still used as a stable.  In the eighteen-fifties the teacher was an old village woman, then about 1860 the school was moved to what was the village almshouse, occupied by four or five people on parish relief.

Such a lovely house for us to use to visit Wales

This is a lovely cottage, with easy access to the beach, coastal path and Rhossilli. We really enjoyed being able to walk out from the house to enjoy the great sea views (when the weather allowed). Many thanks for such a lovely house for us to use to visit Wales

The cottage is perfect and has everything you could want

We stayed for a weekend at this lovely cottage in beautiful Rhosilli. It’s a short walk to the little village and the stunning beach. The cottage is perfect and has everything you could want, well equipped kitchen if you plan to cook, good bathroom and very comfortable bedrooms. Helen was a lovely host. Only wish we could have stayed longer – hopefully we’ll be back for a week next time!

The accommodation was just as described, in a fabulous location.

We have just returned from a lovely 3 night stay. The accommodation was just as described, in a fabulous location. The cottage was very comfortable for 5 of us, and the mik, eggs and carrot cake awaiting us on arrival was very thoughtful and most welcome after a long journey. I just wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you for a lovely stay. We were made to feel very welcome and the cottage was very comfortable.

Highly recommended to anyone staying

Helen was fantastic and very accommodating. The house was a pleasure to stay in and the location was fantastic. Highly recommended to anyone staying.

The farm and the location were magical places to be for the weekend

The Farm is a lovely cottage situated in the center of all things beautiful just minutes from the coastal wonders of Rhossili Beach. It is well-appointed with all you could need for a relaxing stay, no matter the weather. The restaurants are only a short walk away, and many paths leading to all parts of the peninsula are right at your doorstep. Helen is very responsive to questions both before and during your stay. I would rate her amazing property as one of the best we’ve had the pleasure to stay in!  The farm and the location were magical places to be for the weekend.

Beautifully furnished and perfect for the two of us

Helens place is absolutely lovely. Beautifully furnished and perfect for the two of us. We wanted a quiet romantic weekend away and that’s exactly what we got. Thoroughly recommend to anyone, and come with a plan to walk around the area…the coast line is stunning
