The South Wales region
The Gower Peninsula is more than just a pretty face. It was designated as the UK's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty back in 1956, and we're glad to say it hasn't changed much since!
Visit the Gower Peninsula for a rich and varied environment which is breath-taking (and we're not just saying that!) – From wild moors and limestone cliffs to golden, sandy beaches. Gower is a geological goldmine with inspiring landscapes – just look at Dylan Thomas' work.
Stay on dry land in Gower and you will be missing out! It gets some of the most awesome waves in Britain, and sandy Llangennith has been popular amongst surfers for decades. True adrenaline junkies can try a spot of coasteering – climb the cliffs and leap into the waves below, not for the faint hearted! Make sure you're always accompanied by a professional – there are a number of activity providers who would be delighted to hear from you.
It's no surprise that walking in Gower is so popular, its home to some of the most beautiful sections of the Wales Coast Path (even though we are biased). Grab your boots and be prepared for a spectacular waterfront walk. It's not all about sea and sand either – you'll encounter lush woodlands and stunning countryside views along the way.
Sample some of the local delicacies, such as Penclawdd Cockles from the Loughor estuary, succulent Salt Marsh Lamb and the famous Laverbread (its seaweed!).
There is a fabulous range of accommodation in Gower, hotels, apartments, caravans and campsites. From the sumptuous to the simplistic there's something to suit all tastes and budgets. Check out where to stay in Gower if you are thinking of visiting, which of course you should be!
Now a centre mainly for surfers, the village of Llangennith at the north end of Rhossili Bay has always felt cut off not just from the rest of the world but even from the rest of Gower. It was at one time the most infamous, rough and ready village on the peninsula, its villagers always the first to rush to any shipwreck, particularly those in Rhossili Bay, and feuding with neighbouring villagers over any plunder they could find. In a famous incident during World War One, when the government introduced daylight saving time as a public measure, the villagers held a public meeting and graciously voted to fall in line with the rest of the country – for a trial period of one month!
The 12th-century church, the largest in Gower, is dedicated to St Cennydd, who in the 6th century founded a priory here, destroyed by Vikings in 986. The large fortified square tower is curiously placed north of the nave. A short stroll south of the church is the ruined medieval village of Coety Green.
There are gentle walks north-west to the coast over the sand dunes of Llangennith and Broughton Burrows. Signposts to watch out for include Blue Pool, a dramatic rock pool which in the right sea and sky conditions takes a deep blue colour, the natural archway called Three Chimneys, and Culver Hole, a bone cave.
