Gower Peninsula Cottage Holidays

From the long golden sandy beach at Rhossili the Peninsula stretches out to the west, eventually reaching the peaceful bay at Pwll Du. The Peninsula is adored by walkers, bird lovers and, of course, surfers, with miles of golden beaches to choose from.

Holiday visitors to The Gower can choose from over a dozen beautiful beaches. To use the phrase ‘award winning’ is to underestimate the sheer number of awards these beaches have gathered over the years. including ‘One of the ‘Best 25 Beaches in the World’ according to The Sunday Times, while The Times weighs in with ‘The UK’s No.1 Dog-Friendly Beach.

The Gower Beaches also bristle with Green Coast and Blue Flag Awards in recognition of their cleanliness, water quality and beach services. Swansea Marina, Langland Bay, Caswell Bay, Mewslade, Bracelet Bay and Port Eynon all fly Blue Flags, while Pwl Du, Rhossili and Tor Bay all hold coveted Green Coast Awards.
