A truly unique, utterly mesmerising waterside location situated on the beach of Port Eynon. Stylish, cosy and secluded. Two Salthouse 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.


Perfect for couples or families, this idyllic two bedroomed cottage offers a wonderful blend of old and new encompassing original features with modern, contemporary touches. 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 7, bedrooms 2, 1 bathroom and a sofa bed.
If you have a passion for alfresco cooking you will also find an incredible and well equipped outside dining area which includes a charcoal and wood barbecue along with a stone baked pizza oven. It’s a fabulous area where you can sit, drink, eat and soak in the beautiful views.
For guest that get pleasure out of seaside activities and water sports you will find an external hot shower and toilet facility. Great for avoiding sandy bodies and dogs in the property and for hanging up damp wetsuits.


The end terrace of four properties built next to South Gower lifeboat station. Salthouse cottage was constructed around 1934 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!
