This house has always made my spirit sing! Is it the spectacular views or the cosy kitchen? The Attic Room is a simple but comfy space on the 2nd floor, a haven to return home to after a busy day exploring the city, the beaches or heritage centres.
The Attic Room is a simple, but clean and comfortable space in a spacious Victorian house built in the 1880's. It has a 4ft double bed, double wardrobe, bedside table and chair.
It's a second floor room (i.e. climb up TWO levels of stairs) with sloping ceiling under the eaves.
Accès des voyageurs
Guests may enjoy panoramic views over Swansea Bay (Port Talbot to Mumbles) from the first floor living room.
The cosy kitchen with a farmhouse feel and lovely old style Rayburn cooker is the setting for a simple self-service breakfast of cereals, toast, fruit and tea/coffee (included) and the option to join the hosts for dinner (by pre-arrangement, for a donation to cover costs). Guests may use the microwave (or kettle) to heat a ready-meal (not-included!) They may order a take-away and sit and eat in the kitchen; however, they are not permitted to use the kitchen facilities to cook their own meals.
The Prayer Room (when not in use as a bedroom) may be used for reflection, meditation and prayer by guests.
The bathroom has a shower and bath. Please note there is only ONE bathroom in the house and this is a shared facility.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We're happy to give guests as much space as they desire or we can be available to chat in the evenings, making suggestions on places to go (the Gower is lovely to explore). The hosts are particularly interested in all aspects of resilience and well-being (especially eating well for health) and the spiritual heritage of Wales, land of revivals.
The wi-fi internet works well on the ground floor and first floor. Guests staying on the second floor (in the Prayer Room or Attic Bedroom) will get better internet reception by sitting in the living room or kitchen.
The House Rule is LOVE:- treat others as you would like others to treat you!
This includes being respectfully quiet between 10pm and 7am. We leave our shoes at the bottom of the stairs. Slippers are useful – do consider bringing some.
We agree to never be drunk (or high on other substances) in the house and not bring illegal substances / items onto the property.
I'm British but have lived and worked in Asia for about 14 years, most recently for a large international humanitarian and development agency as a strategy advisor. I'm passionate about anything connected with personal resilience and well being - especially eating well, keeping fit and being spiritually alive.
Currently I volunteer at the newly re-opened Bible College of Wales in their Heritage Centre and Intercession spaces. I also run group sessions on physical wellbeing from a faith perspective. I love eating well and exploring the beauty of the natural environment - plenty of it in South Wales!
