The Gower offers a dramatic and varied landscape. The numerous beautiful bays of golden sand and secluded coves are linked by a coastal path allowing you to explore the entire coast of the peninsular. Sandy beaches backed by dunes and dramatic limestone cliffs are found on South and West Gower. To the North of the peninsular the landscape changes to salt marshes and there are many nature reserves providing a bird watcher's paradise. Please be aware that during the summer months some beaches have a dog ban in place.
he Newton area is a small village set above and overlooking Mumbles and the bay, approached from all sides by steep hills it is sleepier than Mumbles and closer to the local beaches. It is a pretty village with traditional fishermen's cottages and an ecclectic mix of more contemporary housing that give Newton a relaxed feel.
Newton is in an ideal location in relation to Mumbles Village and the beaches of Rotherslade and Langland with easy access to the S. Gower roads. Langland and Rotherslade are perfect family beaches- lifeguard manned in summer with long stretches of sand, pebbles, rock pools, rocks and caves to clamber around, tennis courts and clean toilet facilities. There are cafes at both ends of the beach and Langland Brasserie offers contemporary cooking and al fresco dining with views out to sea or cosy nights by the woodburner.
Newton has a traditional butchers, small grocery shop and two 'gastro pubs' situated at the the crossroads.
