With National Trust owned houses, castles,  beaches, walking and cycling, the opportunities to get out and about are  endless. "In the peace of Gower’s gentle farmland – with beaches and bays close at hand . . .

"The  Gower Peninsula with its rolling countryside and miles of unspoilt  coastline is the setting for these very comfortable holiday cottages  which themselves are set on 30 acres of land. The cottages have been  furnished and equipped to a very high standard, and are double glazed  throughout. Visitors enjoy shared use of a games room  with table tennis and a pool table, and may relax in the garden area;  bicycles are available for hire in Swansea and facilities for water  sports and fishing are close at hand. There is easy access to many  beautiful sandy beaches and coves within 10 miles or so, and  opportunities nearby for scenic moorland and coastal walks in this  designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Gowerton, with its shops  and pub, and local trains to west and mid Wales, is only half a mile  away.

A nearby cycle track leads to the Mumbles, which is  famous for its lighthouse and lifeboat station and also boasts seaside  attractions, a pleasant promenade and lots of sailing dinghies and small  boats. At Penclawdd (3 miles), cockle fishermen go out on to the  mudflats at low tide with horse-drawn carts to rake out the cockle  harvest. Many of the Gower’s sandy beaches are backed by dunes, and some  offer excellent wind-surfing; there are sandy coves with rock pools and  the coastal path leads to wonderful cliff-top views. Inland, the sheep  and sturdy Gower ponies roam moorlands which offer further opportunities  for walks, picnics, riding and bird-watching.

A number of National  Nature Reserves are home to rare birds and plants. The glistening  Loughor Estuary provides a haven for waders and geese among the  rice-grass, sea lavender and marsh mallow of Llanrhidian Marsh, all  overlooked by the summit of Cilifor Top, which is crowned with an  extensive Iron Age fort; a nearby lane passes the ruin of Weobley  Castle, once a fortified manor house; on the Gower, visitors can explore  history and natural history side by side at every turn, almost  everywhere with the sound of the sea in the background.
Hang-gliders  take off from Rhossili Down, now in the care of the National Trust, and  swoop over the bay, whose three-mile sweep of golden sand is one of the  most spectacular on the Welsh coast and often offers ideal conditions  for surfing. 

The many facilities of Swansea include restaurants, shops,  theatres, leisure centre, concert halls, museums, golf courses, extensive parks and gardens, a marina and the Welsh National Swimming Pool and sandy beaches with bathing (6 miles). A 30-minute drive leads  to the National Botanical Gardens in Carmarthenshire, whilst an 18-hole golf course and a wildlife and wetlands sanctuary are both only ten  minutes away by car.
Within an hours’ drive and well worth a visit  is the lively capital city of Cardiff with its National Museum of Wales  at St Fagans, as well as Cardiff Bay and the new tidal barrage. 

Nowadays, the Gower is more easily accessible by road, and the warming  effect of the Gulf Stream means that the weather for visitors to the  cosy cottages of Cefn Gorwydd can be exceptionally pleasant at any time  of year.
