Highmead Bed and Breakfast
An introduction to Highmead Bed and Breakfast
- 4 Star
- Group Friendly
- Sea Views
In such beautiful surroundings we seek to provide a friendly 'home from home' atmosphere with comfortable accommodation and stunning views of the sea and coastline. We have lived in Gower for many years and yet have travelled to many other continents too. To us, Gower still remains unique against the wider world and we would love to share this with you, and offer ideas for your holiday time here.
Highmead is situated on the south side of the peninsula in Overton, a small village overlooking Port Eynon some twelve miles west of Swansea. They say that Port Eynon was named after a Welsh prince of the eleventh century who had supposedly built a castle here. Port Eynon with its quaint Norman church and 600 year old font and the Gower peninsula are full of history and there are many legends of smugglers and seafarers' tales to uncover.
Port Eynon's popular beach is safe for families with lifeguard patrols from spring until the end of the summer. From Highmead, walks open up creation and the natural world for you. Take a stroll along the sandy seashore, or explore the rocks and pools at low tide. Cliff top paths open up wonderful vistas or discover the varied wildlife along this unique coastline
All our guest rooms overlook the sea and coastline with magnificent views, whether from your bedroom, at breakfast or while relaxing in the evening. Our accommodation comprises three guest bedrooms, a guest lounge and a dining room. All rooms are tastefully decorated with a range of facilities to help you enjoy your stay. Each ensuite bedroom has tea/coffee facilities, hairdryer, modern comfortable beds, a range of amenity items and local activity information. Wake up to spectacular sea views in this quiet unhurried village, let the beauty refresh you before you enjoy your breakfast in our lovely dining room overlooking Port Eynon bay.
Our breakfasts are varied to suit your taste, from a more traditional English breakfast to continental and international options freshly prepared each morning. After you have enjoyed your day in Gower, come ‘home’ and relax in the guest lounge … just enjoy the view, read a book, plan the next days activity or unwind to music or film or for those who need to stay in touch, watch the evening news! We have a range of books, maps and guides to this beautiful peninsula and beyond for those wishing to explore more of Wales.
