Gower Cottages

Most of the peninsula is in the Gower Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which covers 188 km. Beaches on the Gower include Rhossili Bay on the west coast, a superb beach owned by the National Trust with excellent bathing, Port Eynon, a perfect family beach with a wide expanse of golden sand and rock pools to explore and Oxwich Bay, a long sandy beach with an adjacent Nature Reserve. Rhossili Bay was voted the third best beach in Europe by a worldwide online survey in 2013.

The Gower Heritage Centre in Parkmill, 8 miles to the west of Swansea, is a rural life museum based around a working C12th water-mill and has craft shops, craft activities, an animal farm and Wales' smallest cinema.

Oxwich Castle is actually a Tudor manor built in the C16th rather than in earlier less peaceful times; it overlooks Oxwich Bay on the southern side of the Gower. The building is now in the care of Cadw who describe it as the “remains of a sumptuous, mock-fortified manor”. On the northern side of the peninsula, between the villages of Leason and Landimore and overlooking Llanrhidian Marsh, is Weobley Castle, a picturesque medieval fortified manor house with substantial remains dating principally from the early C14th.

Perriswood Archery and Falconry Centre is situated overlooking Oxwich Bay. Archery sessions are available all day everyday on their outside range or inside if the weather is not suitable; lessons are available for adults and children from the age of 6. With 38 birds of prey, the Centre offers displays and experience days where visitors have the opportunity to meet and hold the birds.

  • Practically on the beach! Stablau Llangenith is located on a 10 acre farm only a few hundred yards from Llangennith beach on the Gower. This rustic Stablau (Stables) was renovated in the 16th Century and is one of the oldest buildings on Gower. The small village of Llangennith, with a great local pub, a surf shop, a village hall and a church, which hosts the Gower Music Festival in July, is about 1 mile away up the farm lane. An amazing location for a holiday close to one of the best beaches in Wales.
