The Bunkhouse

The Chaffhouse Now Open! Our new property sleeps up to 12 people. Visit us on Facebook to find out more. We'll have an updated website with more information soon.

Hardingsdown Bunkhouse is a perfect base for all holidays in the Gower Peninsula. Situated on Lower Hardingsdown Farm, approximately fifteen miles from Swansea, it is ideally placed for you to take advantage of the surrounding beaches, caves and woodland that make up this beautiful area.

The bunkhouse is a recently converted stone barn, providing comfortable self catering accomdation. It sleeps up to fourteen people, and has a fully equiped kitchen and living room.

The Gower Peninsula, which was Britain's first ever designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers something for everyone's taste: from idle walks along the extensive footpaths; to surfing at Llangennith beach, a mere five minutes drive away; paragliding at the Rhossili Downs or enjoying a leisurely cup of tea at one of local tea rooms. In addition to this, we have the Gower Tree, Shrub and Plant Centre on the farm itself, which is well worth a visit!

We are Allison and Andrew Tyrrell, and we have two sons, Rhodri and Steffan. The farm has been in our family since the 1950s, so we are the third generation of our family to farm here. We farm organic beef cattle and sheep, including a small flock of pedigree Suffolk sheep. We are ably assisted by our four dogs: Nell, Myfi (pronounced Muvee), Floss and Roy. They are very friendly, but do like to let you know they're around! To find out more about organic farming, we recommend visiting the Soil Association website, as they are the UK's leading organic organisation.

We are members of the Association of Bunkhouse Operators. We also advertise on these sites: Bunkhouses in Wales, Gower Holidays, Stay in Wales, Group Accomodation, and Organic Places to Stay
