The Gower area
The self-catering cottage is located within curtilage of the farm and village of Southgate. It has gated private road access and is 200 meters from Pennard Golf Club. Only a half a mile away is the stunning Three Cliffs Bay. In 2006, The Gower celebrated its 50th Anniversary as Britain's first designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. The 19-mile long Peninsula comprises of some of Wales’ cleanest and most stunning beaches, including Rhossili, where you can enjoy the most spectacular view of the famous Worm’s Head and Llangennith Beach that is recognised as one of the premier surf beaches in the UK.
The cottage takes its name from James Grove, a historic ruin in the centre of Great Southgate Farm, originally housing priests of the Knights’ Templar in medieval times. It is an ideal location for walking and enjoying the spectacular coastal scenery.
Good footpath routes lead from the cottage to wooded valleys, heather moors, cliff walks and sandy beaches. To the West of the cottage a footpath on the boundary of the farm leads to Pobbles and Three Cliffs Bay. From there, at low tide, five miles of sand are exposed to Oxwich Bay. Paths then lead to Port Eynon and Paviland Caves (Site of one of the earliest known human burial remains in the UK: Thought to be more than 25,000 years old.) Inland walks from the cottage cross the golf course by public footpath and lead to the ancient ruins of Pennard Castle. Other activities to enjoy in the area include golf, exploring the bays and pony trekking.
The are also plenty of indoor activities nearby including the new £32m Leisure Centre (LC2) in Swansea offering swimming, water park entertainment and first class sports facilities. Swansea City centre also has an enviable choice of restaurants providing a choice of many cuisines and shopping facilities to equal any major city. The City also boasts free access to maritime and industrial museums and art galleries. On the outskirts of the city are delightful parks and miles of countryside and seaside promenade walks.
