Cheriton Accommodation and Holiday Guide


Britain’s first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is almost a 20 mile peninsula of glorious beaches, dramatic cliffs and tiny pretty villages. The Gower produces some of the best surfing in Wales, as well as being an excellent spot for windsurfing and cycling. Due to the fantastic scenery and wildlife, the area is also popular with walkers and wildlife enthusiasts alike. Ruined castles, churches such as St Cadoc’s in Cheriton – known as the cathedral of The Gower and mysterious prehistoric remains add interest to an area rich in things to do and see.

Cheriton is a small village on the North coast of the Gower, that is home to the Cathedral of the Gower, St Cadoc’s church, and the most beautiful church on the Gower. It is dedicated to St Cadoc and was built around the 13th or 14th centuries, to replace the one at Landimore which suffered due to the advancing sea on low lying land. The village of Cheriton nestles into the undulating countryside, which is also home to mature woodlands, sand dunes and salt marshes. The whole area is a haven for ornithologists and walkers alike.
