A truly unique, utterly mesmerising waterside location situated on the beach of Port Eynon. Stylish, cosy and secluded. One Salt Cottage is proud to be the most southerly dwelling on the Gower peninsula, known as an area of outstanding natural beauty and boastful of the glorious blue flag beach on which it resides. You will find yourself blown away by the breath taking coastal views and can find yourself on the beach paddling in the ocean just a stone’s throw from your front door.

SALTHOUSE COTTAGE

Perfect for a couple or a family with one baby, this idyllic one bedroomed sea front cottage offers a wonderfully cosy feel with beautiful exposed beams and rustic features. Only a five-minute walk from the stunning beach of Horton, and moments from the centre of Port Eynon Harbour, a stay at our cottage offers an authentic touch of coastal living with an added taste of luxury. Sleeps up to 3, 1 bedroom plus travel cot and 1 bathroom.
After a long day on the beach or out exploring you can find yourself sat peacefully in the private garden to the rear of the property. It’s a fabulous area where you can sit, drink, eat and soak in the beautiful views.

HISTORY

The second from terrace of four properties built next to South Gower lifeboat station. Salthouse cottage was constructed in 1884 and has been occupied by a combination of life boatmen, salt miners, farm labours and oyster fishermen. If you have a keen eye you will spot the remains of the oyster pools in the old harbour at low tide. Approximately 500m from the cottage are the ruins of the salt house, where sea water was boiled to leave salt, which was then used in the preservation of the fish. It is likely that Port Eynon was chosen as a location for the salt house not only because of the fishing industry here but also because the bay has a relatively high salinity, being quite shallow with the absence of any rivers flowing in. The locals here also managed to build themselves quite a reputation for smuggling!
