The famous beauty of the Gower attracts a lot of visitors, but the secluded Burrows Cottage is a peaceful retreat even in high season. This white, single-storey forester’s cottage is hidden away in pine woods near the hamlet of Cwm Ivy and the village of Llanmadoc in one of the quieter parts of the Gower. It comes highly recommended for birdwatchers, the beach nearby being part of the Whiteford Burrows nature reserve. The following species can be seen from the bird-hide at Berges island:
Brent Geese, Curlew, Dunlin, Godwits, Grebe, Kestrel, Lapwing, Meadow Pipits, Merlin, Oystercatchers, Plover, Redshank, Sanderling, Snipe, Teal, and Wigeon.
The cottage is also suitable for those in search of tranquillity, beautiful landscapes and good walking. Information at the National Trust
