Schouten House

Top choice bed and breakfast in Swansea

This brick-and-sandstone 1844 mansion was built by convicts, and was the centre of 'Great Swanport' before the action shifted a little further north. Decorated in frill-free Georgian style, its rooms now house 19th-century half-tester beds and other antiques. The attentive owners offer a large breakfast menu that includes a vegan ratatouille, bacon butties and great pancakes.
