“Beautiful area that's not to be missed.”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Easily accessible off the M4 near Swansea, this is a lovely and relatively compact area that should not be overlooked. The coastline from Mumbles to Rhossili is beautiful with some wonderful beaches. There are many walks through stunning scenery. Take some time to research and explore the Gower - you will not regret it!
Highly recommended.

“The Gower Peninsular, Three Cliffs Bay”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Three Cliffs, the Gower Peninsular, is one of the most picturesque places and well worth a visit. It is however, a place that requires the visitor to do some walking, but it is well worth the effort. You can park your car at Sheperds on the main road after the Gower Inn, but there is a charge for this and the walk from here is level but sometimes muddy.

“Gower”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Called, 'Little England beyond Wales', the area is distinctly different from the northern welsh areas. This could be due to Norman and perhaps Viking influence. Also the sea connection with Devon has played its part. Wonderful yellow sandy beaches, often narrow roads going through surprisingly changeable countryside with many small villages. Perhaps 'in season', now too popular ! I love it in the winter, even when the weather is rough. Lots of places to stay, but book early!
