Penmaen Burrows and Nicholaston Burrows are nestled between Three Cliffs Bay and Oxwich Bay. A walk through the burrows will take you through heathland, woodland, sand dunes and cliff tops.
Penmaen Burrows is rich in history, including the remains of a Neolithic burial chamber, a Norman ringwork and a medieval church. There is also the possibility of a village called Stedwarlango buried under the sandy plateau.
The dunes at Nicholaston Burrows are home to interesting flora such a bloody cranesbill, pyramidal orchids and a number of lichen species. It's also rich in invertebrates and, if you’re lucky, common lizards may also be seen.
Penmaen Burrows offers fantastic views over Three Cliffs Bay, as does Notthill. Notthill is a small secluded area of recovering heathland with a flourish of bluebells in the spring.
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|

We're reopening our places in Wales from Monday 9 November in line with Welsh Government guidelines following the firebreak lockdown. Under the new Welsh Government legislation, our places are only open to Wales residents and to groups of four or less (excluding children below 11) unless they are from the same household.
