Llanmadoc Accommodation and Holiday Guide

Introduction

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.

Llanmadoc perches over 600ft above sea level, affording it superb views over the Gower. There is an iron age hill fort, as well as bronze age burial sites. Ponies and sheep graze on the hill. There is a footpath leading to Whiteford Sands a secluded beach, framed by sand dunes that form the Whiteford Burrow National Nature Reserve. An ornithologist haven as Oystercatchers, Golden Plovers, Knots, Dunlins, Turnstones and Redshanks abound.
