Proud owners of a Mumbles B&BWe moved to our Mumbles B&B in March 2014, taking over from the previous owners – surf legend Paul Gill and his wife Sarah. Since then we’ve spent almost nine months refurbishing the building from top to bottom alongside interior designer Tamsin Leech-Griffiths – we hope you like our version of B&B by the sea.

Carwyn grew up just north of Swansea in rural Carmarthenshire. He joined the British Army in 2005 and served for seven years including tours in Afghanistan and the Falkland Islands. He paused his military career to tackle a Masters degree in Emergency Response and Disaster Management at Oxford Brookes in 2012, and now serves with the Reserves here in Swansea. Also a Mountain Leader, Carwyn leads overseas expeditions for young people when he’s not making beds and cooking breakfasts here at Langland Cove.

Sarah grew up in Bristol but has been on the move ever since, living and working as an adventure travel writer in various UK and overseas locations including Japan, India, Central and South America, South East Asia and Australia. Also a Mountain Leader, expedition leader and long distance walker, Sarah tackled the GR10 in 2012 (from Atlantic to Mediterranean across the Pyrenees) before becoming a Full-Time Mum in 2013. She now attempts to balance running the B&B with family life (and sneaks off for long walks whenever she can).

Maelo arrived in true Welsh style on St David’s Day, March 2013. He enjoys swimming in the sea, climbing mountains, eating ice-cream and cuddles. Our second son Rowan was born on 11th June 2015. So far he likes milk, smiling and lovely long naps.
