Horton 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.

On the South Gower coast Horton is a quiet and pretty village that shares the beach with Port Eynon. There are few amenities in Horton itself, though given the proximity to Port Eynon, this is not much of a problem. The Cove beach is just a minute’s walk over sand dunes from the car park and is a Blue Flag beach. Amongst other things this means that there is a dog ban in force, usually between Easter and October.
