Had a fantastic week in Wales. Kenny (The smooth-haired fox terrier) thoroughly enjoyed his beach walks . For anyone who likes walking with or without a dog , we highly recommend Rhossili Bay, Oxwich Bay, Pembrey country park and

Whitford Sands,( The latter two are also good for bird spotting). We’ve been very comfortable here in the lodge- thank’s for having us and thank you very much for the wine & flowers.

Lovely accommodation , ideally suited for day trips to the beach, woodland walks and the main towns/cities. Had a lovely long weekend in Wales and would defiantly come again. The dogs have had a great time with lots of wonderful walks . Thank you for the warm welcome at our arrival.

We’ve been really comfortable here at Banfield Lodge , The welcome was warm with complimentary wine and flowers , and we felt it to be nice and private too.

Everything we needed was provided from kitchen utensils to the very thought full  printout of high and low tides. We found the Historic Gower information both really useful and have been out hunting places of interest with the OS maps(also helpfully provided). Beds super comfortable too! A relaxing , lovely place to stay as a gateway to the Gower. Thank’s.

Jennifer and I had a lovely week at a lovely location. The dogs (Roly & Barney) enjoyed having the park on the doorstep and met many friends while out walking, every time I sat down they were begging at the door to be let out ! Tony & Elyssia failed properly to organise the weather but everything else was excellent with the Lodge fully equipped and beautifully presented. We can and will leave refreshed from an excellent week, many thank’s to Tony & Elyssia – We will come again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lodge . The attention to detail and cosy atmosphere were very much appreciated. Banfield Lodge made an excellent base from which to explore the most beautiful surroundings . The walks were just amazing . It was so good to be able to bring the dog- she thought it so much better than kennels !!

Thank’s to you both.     Heidi & Georgi.



A comfortable , warm and homely accommodation . We brought our girls ( Dogs ) to escape the distress of bonfire weekend. Although fireworks could be heard in the distance the “girls” suffered very little distress, therefore we made a good choice coming to Banfield Lodge.  Banfield is ideally located to explore the beauty of the Gower , we were very contented to enjoy the local walks where the girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves . The truly Welsh welcome – Croeso- of wine , tea, milk and flowers was much appreciated. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

Gloria  Kevin & the girls.
