Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages on The Gower Peninsula

The Gower Peninsula, situated on the Western coast of Wales beyond Swansea, was the first designated area of “Outstanding Natural Beauty”, within which its collection of superb little holiday cottages in the Gower Peninsula fits very comfortably. If you start at the Mumbles and venture west, you can enjoy 19 miles of stunning scenery and beautiful beaches. 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 surfers, with miles of golden beaches from which to choose.

Holiday visitors to The Gower can choose holiday homes 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 bristles 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.

The Gower is not just about beautiful beaches. Go mountain boarding at Weobley Castle or ‘Go-Ape’ on high ropes and zip wires in the trees at the Margham Country Park. There is plenty of history to enjoy with ancient places of interest, among them Arthur’s Stone and Pennard Castle. The fossil hunter will find much to explore in the Gower caves, which have delivered the oldest discovered human remains in Britain. Inland, Aberglasney House in Carmarthenshire’s Tywi Valley has a garden that has been a source of inspiration to poets since 1477 and is recognised as “One of the finest gardens in Wales”. Visit Oystermouth Castle to explore this historic building and enjoy the view overlooking the whole of Swansea Bay.

Surfers and bodyboarders will be happy spending their days in The Gower. The Guardian recognises Llangennith as one of the ‘Top Ten Classic Surfing Beaches’. A little further along the coast, Three Cliffs Bay has scooped up awards for the beauty of the views enjoyed when visiting it.
