Windyridge Cottage Reviews

We had a lovely stay at Windyridge, it’s a beautiful part of the world and we would love to come back to the Gower.
Windyridge had everything we needed and was the perfect base to come back to after days out exploring or was perfect to just to stay take it easy and relax at home for the day. The conservatory, lounge and outside area was outstanding, especially the swimming pool, we all loved it. The weather even ended up better than we thought and we had some lovely beach days and outside meals. We are so glad we booked our stay at Windyridge and it was just what we needed after a busy year. We feel relaxed and our only regret is we didn’t book a second week. We would love to come back and stay again.

We had a wonderful time in your beautiful house & pool!
