3 bedrooms, sleeps 6, beachfront penthouse, a great location for family holidays
About Sally Purnell
We are a professional couple who now have a little more leisure time away from the office. Gower View Penthouse is our family holiday home, we live in Birmingham and so could not be further from the sea. We visit regularly to enjoy the peace and quiet as well as all the area has to offer. We have 2 married daughters and 4 grandchildren under the age of 8. All the generations really enjoy staying in the penthouse,.
Sally Purnell purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Sally Purnell chose Llanelli
We decided to buy Gower View Penthouse in May 2007. We viewed it on a wet and windy day but still fell in love with the penthouse and spectacular view! When staying there we enjoy golf, walking, cycling, tennis, the beautiful beaches and the great selection of restaurants nearby. Whatever the weather there is so much to do in the area and so many places to visit.
What makes this Apartment unique
The view is breathtaking and constantly changing. The sunsets are spectacular. In just a few steps you can be on the beach or heading along the traffic free coastal path on foot or by bike. The Gower Peninsula, Pembrokeshire and the Brecon Beacons National Park are all within easy reach. There is just so much to do whatever the weather and so many different places to eat. The Penthouse is a 10-15 minute drive from the M4, it takes us just over 2 hours 30minutes to drive from Birmingham via the Heads of the Valley road - a beautiful route. There is a new out of town shopping centre Trostre Parc just a 8 minute drive away which provides all the shopping you could want. Tesco, Asda and Morrisons are all within in 10 minute drive and some guests arrange a home delivery before their stay.

A great place to stay
This is our second time in this fabulous apartment. It is extremely well equipped and the views are amazing. You can hear curlews calling from the balcony. A wonderful area with plenty to do, you will not be disappointed . Highly recommended , thank you for a great stay.
Spacious, clean, well stocked and well positioned.
We had a great time staying here and it offered our family of 4 everything we needed. It was the best stocked place we have ever stayed in, absolutely everything we needed. The views are stunning and the bike paths are fantastic. Biking was the main reason to choose this place and most days we biked to Penbray Country Park and in the evenings Burry Port for a drink at the sailing club. It's a lovely cycle route and it goes on and on and on. 377 miles long I believe if you want to really tour on a bike.
One word of warning for bikers. There are bike sheds but you might struggle for space to lock bikes. We had 4 and I could only get two in the nearest shed. I locked one against my car and kept the other inside. I was warned prior to booking to be fair, but took the chance. Glad I did, but if you have expensive bikes like us, be prepared to be inventive about how you lock them up.
The penthouse was clean, tidy and easy to find. The owner was very helpful and the whole experience was great. We considered the local restaurant which looked nice, but as we know the area, we travelled into Mumbles and ate at the new Bistro Pierre opposite Joe's Ice Cream. This has all been done up and I thoroughly recommend it if you are over that way.
I am really pleased you enjoyed your stay and lots of cycling. We love going to Pembrey by bike but have yet to try the sailing club for an evening drink but will do when we are there in September. Thank you for the restaurant recommendation in Mumbles, we will try that too. I am glad you found all you needed in the penthouse, I like to go to there without having to do a 'basics ' shop as soon as I arrive.
Lovely apartment, good location for touring Gower/ South Wales
i am delighted that you enjoyed our apartment. There is so much to see and do in the area and Llanelli is very conveniently situated to access many different places.
Lovely comfortable apartment with fabulous views
This apartment is extremely well equipped,spotlessly clean and comfortable to stay in. There are three balconies and the views are amazing. It is well placed for the Gower beaches and Brecon Beacons with plenty of good shopping areas too. Highly recommended.
I am very pleased you found our penthouse clean, comfortable and with everything you needed. When we stay anywhere these are all the things we look for so we have ensured that they apply to our family holiday home. Llanelli is a very good base for visiting so many lovely areas of South West Wales, but there is also a lot to do locally and within easy reach of the penthouse.
Lovely, well-equipped property with great views.
Very helpful owner who sorted out an extra parking space and made sure we had all the information we needed for our stay. The property was clean and warm (really important for a Winter stay).
I am pleased you enjoyed our penthouse for your New Year stay. The view is the main reason we decided to buy the penthouse, it is constantly changing and the winter sunsets are the most spectacular. We always like to be warm so make sure our guests are too. As we stay there often we have equipped it with all we need to make sure it is a real home from home.
Superb apartment with an amazing view
We booked this apartment for 18 nights due to working in the area, started with 2 ending as 3. What a place and great location with amazing views especially to wake up too.
The penthouse apartment is modern and well presented. Very comfortable, well equipped with everything you'd need for a self catering holiday including towels! Spacious, over 2 levels and 3 guys had more than enough space to have our own space. Can't comment too much about the area as we were working but the building is quiet and inviting.
Sally the owner is brilliant great communication from start to finish and more than happy to answer any question.
Would recommend Gower view penthouse, and hope to get down for a summer job.
Hi Scott thank you for taking time to write a review and I am pleased that our penthouse suited you and your colleagues so well. It is a shame you were working such long hours and did not have time to explore the area as there is so much to see and do. I would be delighted to have you to stay again if you are in the area. Sally
