Walking In Gower
The Gower / Port Eynon area
Port Eynon, is a village of white washed cottages surrounding a church which, it is believed was founded in the 6th century. There is a fairly quiet sandy beach, which has parking close by, and is patrolled by lifeguards in the summer months. The village has a shop, a public house and a café (open in season) and is steeped in history. During the 19th century Oyster dredging was huge, with many Oyster skiffs working out of the harbour. The visible remains of the harbour can be seen in the sheltered west end of the bay. Established in the 16th Century, the remains of the salt house stands to the far south west of the bay, a valuable commodity in those days.
The cliffs to the west of Port Eynon are witness to numerous shipwrecks during the 18th,19th and early 20th century with associated tales of smuggling and piracy. Along these cliffs just to the west of Port Eynon point lies the mysterious cave of Culver Hole. A cleft in the rock protected by a man made stone wall. Fabled to have a tunnel linking the site with a manor house that once stood on Port Eyon Point..
A 10 minute drive will take you to Rhossili Bay, a wide beach with miles of golden sand. At one end is Burry Holmes, an outcrop of land, with a tiny chapel. Beyond the headland is Broughton Bay which has an abundance of sand dunes. At the other end of Rhossili Bay is the Worms Head which rears out of the sea with its impressive Blow Hole which you can explore at low tide, and up on the cliff top is the village of Rhossili where there are a few shops and cafes with some amazing views over the bay – watch out for the paragliders.
The village of Llangennith is half way along the bay and about a mile inland. There is a campsite and caravan park set back from the beach with parking, a café and facilities – a good base if you want to enjoy the beach and popular with surfers. With only a pub and a surf shop the village of Llangennith remains untouched, but the pub fayre is fairly inexpensive with nice views over the bay complimented by a very tasty Gower Special pizza (cockles and bacon).
Travelling in the opposite direction, Oxwich Bay is the next beach along from Port Eynon (15 by car ) and probably the busiest of the rural beaches on Gower with good facilities. The Oxwich Bay Hotel offers bar meals as well as a restaurant and the beach itself has a water sports club where you can learn to sail or surf, wakeboard or take a doughnut ride - and if you don't feel like driving to Oxwich you could travel by water taxi.
At the other end of Oxwich is Three Cliffs Bay (finalist on TV's 'Britain's favourite view' programme) – one of the most photographed beauty spots on Gower. Here a river meets the sea, sheep graze on the grassy verges overlooking the beach, wild ponies roam freely and the board walk winds its way up to Pennard Castle. There's a lot to absorb in just one snapshot.
Travelling East along the South Gower Road for another 10minutes is Parkmill, where you will find the Gower Heritage Centre with its many attractions for all the family including an 800 year old working water mill. www.gowerheritagecentre.co.uk
A few yards away are 70 acres of peaceful Parc le Breos where you can take a quiet stroll, hire bikes or enjoy a day out on horseback.
At the centre of the peninsula is the lofty moor land called Cefn Bryn, one of the highest points on Gower, and the burial ground of the legendary King Arthur. From here, on a clear day you can see as far as Devon to the south and the Black Mountains to the North.
The village of Reynoldston is just across the green, home to the King Arthur Hotel where some of the best pub food in the area can be found.
If a little more action is your cup of tea, then try the old fishing village of Mumbles (from Port Eynon it's approximately half an hour by car) where there are cafes, and restaurants, gift shops and boutiques in abundance. Make sure you don't leave without enjoying a stroll along the promenade with a Joe's ice cream - the best in area.

"Immaculate, comfortable and relaxing...a fantastic place."
My husband and I stayed at 5 Highfields with our 16 month old son. We were welcomed on arrival by Lynne, who had very kindly put away our internet shop which had arrived early. The bungalow was immaculate and decorated/furnished to a very high standard. The kitchen was well equipped with everything needed and more!
The beach was a very short walk away and we also made use of the launderette and shop on site. We enjoyed a breakfast in the beachside cafe and also fish and chips from Scurlage. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area.
We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay and look forward to returning again! A perfect bungalow and location.
Great to see you had a good time.
Really appreciate your feedback.

We are delighted you enjoyed our bungalow and that the weather really helped you to maximise your stay using both the front and back gardens. The walks from Port Eynon can be varied, many having spectacular scenery, but your right the local bus service is very useful for the return journey.

Great news that you enjoyed your stay. We usually do supply bathroom mats so I am not sure why this was missed this time. With regards to the lock on the bathroom door, we definitely understand what you mean and will ensure this is looked at as a priority. Thanks for your feedback. Lynne

"Wonderful bungalow tastefully decorated in beautifully maintained grounds."
My husband and I together with my sister and her husband travelled to the Gower for a much needed break. On arrival we discovered we had no O2 mobile phone coverage, this proved to be the only downside to our stay, fortunately my sister had coverage with another network provider. Initially we found it difficult to locate the bungalow as it is at the back of a campsite, however Nigel the site the maintenance chap was an absolute diamond and escorted us to the door - a duty he repeated for our friend who visited us later in the week !
The bungalow itself was delightful - airy, clean, spacious and fully equipped . We decided to accept the owners enhanced service which means the beds were made on arrival and we had plenty of clean towels, tea towels etc, meaning we were ready to holiday straight away and didn't need to pack so much in advance. We made full use of the enclosed rear garden and managed to fit in 2 BBQ's during our stay. It was calming and pleasant to sit at the front of the bungalow in the morning. The gardens were so well maintained and you could see the sea from this vantage point. The lovely beach was within a couple of minutes walking distance. There is also a pub, and a couple of small restaurants and shops nearby. We enjoyed days out in Swansea, Carmarthen and actually visited the Mumbles area twice. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and plan to return at some stage.
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. I will most certainly pass your comment onto Nigel. Hope to see you again. Lynne

We liked the bungalow and had a good week despite the weather. The bungalow is very well equipped, spacious and very clean. The kitchen is brand new and has everything you need, including a very large American style fridge. The accommodation has the added bonus of having WIFI. The bathroom needs updating at some point but otherwise, the bungalow is spot on. The weather prevented us from using the back garden and BBQ, which is very well kept and has plenty of seats and tables. There are sea views from the front patio. The park staff were very friendly and the shop owner baked us croissants and french sticks to order.
Sandra, the property owner, kept us very well informed at all stages of the booking process and provided lots of photo's of the bungalow for us to view prior to our holiday.
The beach is a stones throw away and the fish and chips on the sea front are excellent. The village reataurant (Smugglers Haunt) is expensive but the food is very good, even though the portions are small.
Try out Rhossili and Llanngenith beaches for body boarding - amazing!
Hello, having recently purchased the bungalow we have been reviewing all the comments. We are really pleased you enjoyed both the bungalow and the facilities close by. We would like to thank you for your feed back as it is very helpful. Regards Lynne Jones

"Beautiful bungalow with a fantastic view"
There was a lot to consider when we were planning this holiday as we have three young children (ages 7, 4 and 2) and we wanted a place which was within convenient driving distance of attractions, not too far from the city (Swansea in this case) and close to the beach. Also the bungalow needed to be suitable for young children. WI FI was a priority as unfortunately I needed to take some work with me and ideally cartoon channels for kids. This bungalow ticked all the boxes.
Sandra was away so her friend Jen was there to hand over the keys, she was very patient as it took us six hours to arrive from Surrey with kids and our arrival time changed a few times. She had even switched the heating on before we arrived so the bungalow was nice and warm.
The bungalow itself was a pleasant surprise, beautiful kitchen and living room, with enough space for kids to run around and play. The owners had recently bought a new travel cot and high chair which was perfect for us. The garden was was nice and clean and it even had a gas BBQ which we used one day and it worked fine. The whole area was very peaceful and quiet.
I would recommend stopping at view points on the way if you are travelling from Swansea and visiting the Gower Heritage Centre, which is a 15 min drive from the bungalow. They have a tea room there and the coffee and scones are delicious.
The place is child friendly and owners have taken great care to make it as comfortable as possible.

"A beautiful quiet ,family friendly location."
I can only say that the view as you arrive from the top of the hill is one of the best I have seen, the sea and headland were wonderful.The site is clean and well kept if a bit quiet mind you it is early.The bungalow is immaculate,clean with a wonderful sea view from the front balcony.It had a great back garden ideal for our young son to play in.The beach is a two minute walk away across the dunes,it was difficult to get our son away from the beach .
The location of this bungalow is superb for children and very child friendly.
We had a great time, just wish the weather could have been kinder.
Hello, having recently purchased the bungalow, we are reviewing all the responses and would like to thank you for your feed back. We also feel the views on entering the site are spectacular, hope you can visit again. Lynne
