Rich in history, the coast includes the remains of a Neolithic burial chamber, a Norman ringwork and a medieval church.
Just metres from the world-famous beach at Rhosili Bay, this cottage offers a unique stay on the Gower Peninsula.
Dramatic sea views and cliff-top walks in all directions make this cottage a must-visit.
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.
