Penclawdd 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.

The North Gower
Penclawdd on the North Gower coast seems an unlikely place to find a restaurant owned by a chef who used to work at a 5 star hotel in Shanghai. The Sea Garden http://www.food-passion.co.uk/restaurants/sea-garden/ is a lovely restaurant, beautifully decorated with authentic Chinese furniture. The menu is extensive has something for everyone! As well as an excellent Chinese restaurant, Penclawdd has two pubs: The Railway Inn and The Royal Oak, as well as The Belle Vue Fish Bar – a takeaway.
Once a thriving seaport exporting goods from the copper works and coal mines, Penclawdd today is a tranquil place situated alongside the Lougher Estuary and famous for its seafood, particularly Penclawdd cockles.
