Book a hotel on Gower Peninsula and investigate the area famous as being the first region in the UK to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, quite a feat, considering some of the amazing landscapes in Cumbria, Scotland and the South West.

Town and city breaks the in Gower Peninsula and Swansea Bay
Have a stroll around the bizarrely named but charming town of The Mumbles. We have a hotel on Gower Peninsula so the seaside town, containing a host of interesting boutiques, cafes and shops, is within easy reach. There is evidence to suggest the Romans set up camp in the area for quite some time, but if your thirst for historic fact is not sated then head to Oystermouth Castle, a well-preserved fortress, built by the Normans. Swansea is, of course, well worth a visit. The city, nestled snuggly in the beautiful bay, acts as a perfect jumping off point for exploring the surrounding countryside. We have one hotel in Swansea Bay, right on the seafront, offering some of the most beautiful landscapes and freshest air you'll find anywhere in the country.
Holidays in the Gower Peninsula and Swansea Bay countryside
A great family activity on the peninsula is to get stuck into an ordinance survey map and have a good old wander around the heavenly outlet. The views and sights of the region are certainly up there with the most beautiful in the UK and even Europe, the relaxing lapping of the Bristol Channel is a perpetual background beat. Booking a hotel on the Gower Peninsula or in Swansea Bay will surely result in one of the most peaceful short breaks going, but for a bit of activity, head along Gower Way, walk to the area's pinnacle at Rhossili Downs, or go and meet the guillemots and puffins near Worm's Head's headland.
Beach holidays in the Gower Peninsula and Swansea Bay
The beaches of the Gower Peninsula are some of Great Britain's most stunning. The coastline remains largely untouched and the many beaches, coves and bays have been widely praised. Rhossili has been described as 'the supermodel of British Beaches' by The Independent, and 'one of the top 10 coastal walks,' by the Times, with many of the other coves receiving similar high praise. With such a great selection, however, you could have a whole blue-flag beach to yourself. Gower Peninsula's 50-plus beaches include the jagged limestone rocks on Three Cliffs Bay. Langland and Caswell Bays draw surfers to the Bristol Channel breakers and waves.
