:: The Farm and Surrounding Area
Coynant's 17th Century Farmhouse is idyllically set in 200 acres of fields, woods, streams and hills, amidst an area of beautiful beaches and country that is filled with interest. Walks on the surrounding hills give magnificent views from the Bristol Channel to the Black Mountains and Gower Peninsular.
You will be fascinated by our menageri of rare and unusual animals while you stroll our beautiful walks and visit a host of animals and birds including Deer, Lamas and Emus.
Everywhere you will find panoramic views and absolute peace. This is a haven for walkers and birdwatchers or those who just want to enjoy quiet places and the freedom to splash your feet in the clear waters of a mountain stream with no-one except the grazing sheep to disturb your complete privacy.
Although Coynant enjoys seclusion, we are conveniently situated in the centre of an area noted for its immense variety of scenery and attractions, being less than 6 miles from Swansea's boundary, the M4 and good roads to every location.
Some attractions withing easy reach of the farm:
The farm is on the old Gower pathway which is a walk the whole length of Gower, starting in the uplands and described "As having a wilder beauty of its own to Rhossili Bay at its southern most point. Rarely can such a variety of scenery be seen in such a short distance" (The Gower Society).
Gower Peninsula - Britain's first area of outstanding natural beauty, 20 miles of unspoiled bays and beaches in natural settings is on the doorstep.
Pembrey Beach - Seven miles of sand backed by forests and a country park along its whole length. We doubt if you will see a finer beach anywhere.
There are many fine castles, historic places, art galleries, Dan-yr-Ogof Caves - featuring the huge Cathedral cave; many waterfalls considered unequalled in the country, national parks of lakes, forests and mountains. Interesting old market towns and so much more than could be seen in one holiday.
Carreg Cennen Castle - the most picturesquely situated castle in Britain, is on the edge of the Brecon Beacon's National Park, seven miles north. The Waterfowl Trust is 9 miles.
Swansea is a very fine shopping centre with its famous indoor market and the new Marina is well worth a visit where you will find the new Maritime Museum is being built.
Coynant is a working farm and visitors are welcome to enjoy and explore at will. Regretably we cannot take dogs. For guests' use we have a pay phone, satellite televisions and a Licenced Bar. You are assured of a warm welcome and every effort will be made to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Whichever time of year you choose to visit, each will have its own attraction. Autumn and winter evenings with log fires and cosy rooms, or summer strolls after dinner over quiet country with magnificent views.
