In Caswell, you’ll be greeted by the rippling waves on Caswell Bay used by paddlers and surfers alike, you can even book surfing lessons while on your holiday here.

Bishopston even has a hidden gem in the form of a secluded beach called Pwll Du which is accessed through an off road track.
From Bishopston, heading West of the Gower you will come across Pennard, Southgate and Parkmill. These sweet villages bring you to the properties situated closest to Three Cliffs Bay, a popularly photographed, iconic beach – well worth the visit, as seen on many brochures and posters for the Gower Peninsular. Roughly a mile further down the Gower Peninsular lie fresh water rivers, grassy landscapes and ‘pick your own’ fruit and veg farm’s and cafés belonging to the villages of Penmaen and Nicholaston. Here you can enjoy isolated walks and despite the country appearance you’re still never too far from the beaches Three Cliffs, Tor Bay, Nicholaston Burrows and Oxwich.
With sand dunes, water sports and even a leisure park, Oxwich Bay can provide the perfect base for beach a getaway. With the Oxwich Bay Hotel providing meals, drinks and snacks, there is no need to stray too far from the beach on a sunny day. Not far from this busy beach is the most South point of Gower and a quaint village called Port Eynon. Home to many campsites and caravan parks with the beaches of Port Eynon and Horton boasting the coast line, the village accommodates for friends and families with fish and chip shops, pubs and restaurants just minutes from the sandy beaches.
To the centre of the Gower lie The villages of Reynoldston and Knelston.
