About Burrows Cottage

A serene stay among pine woodlands, just a short walk to the sand dunes of Whiteford Burrows.

Burrows Cottage is a simple, single-storey former forester’s cottage. Located in a secluded spot alongside a pine wood, the cottage benefits from a large private garden and is just a short walk to the beach. Inside, you’ll find traditional interiors complete with a wood-burning stove in the living room.  

After a cup of coffee in the garden, explore the dunes at Whiteford Burrows National Nature Reserve. Play a game of cricket or rounders on the beach before heading over to the village of Rhossili.

Make the trip to north Gower to see the area from a completely different perspective. This part of the Gower is much quieter than the south of the peninsula and a perfect get away.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
