Reynoldston 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.
Reynoldston is a quiet village on the North coats towards the middle of the peninsula. Luxury accommodation is available at the Fairyhill Hotel which also has a fantastic restaurant. Sheep graze on the village green and there is a good pub, the King Arthur Hotel http://www.kingarthurhotel.co.uk that serves excellent food as well as drinks. Just outside Reynoldston on a windy ridge of Sandstone known as Cefn Bryn sits King Arthur’s Stone a dolmen or burial chamber capstone. Isolated, the stone once sat atop six smaller stones, before it split. From King Arthur’s Stone a path leads across the road to the Lady’s Well a holy spring which is now enclosed in a hut. From Lady’s Well, the path continues to a ruined chapel at Penmaen and Neolithic burial chamber. The area has a mystical feel about it; expect to pass many stones and ruins along the way.
