Pwlldu Bay 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.

Pwlldu Bay is a pebbly beach that is owned by the National Trust and backs on to a wooded ravine that is fantastic for walkers. The beach is inaccessible by car although there is a car park in nearby Bishopston village, just a mile away.
