Rhossili 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.

The South Gower

is a very pretty little village at the western end of the peninsula. Steps lead down to Rhossili Bay, a fantastic swathe of sand 3 miles long that stretches to Burry Holms in the distance. Rhossili Bay is an excellent surf spot and is extremely popular in summer. From Rhossilli the fantastic five mile long Gower Coastal Pathhugs the cliff tops towards Port Eynon. En route look out for Paviland Cave, where the oldest human remain in Britain were found. The skeleton known as The Red Lady of Paviland was actually a man and dated back to around 24000BC!
