Pubs & Eating Out

Gower has a variety of award winning pubs and restaurants, and having two within a minutes walk makes leaving the car behind on a lazy sunny day or after a relaxing meal a rewarding feeling. If you fancy moving a little further afield, within 5 minutes by car or 25 minutes by foot there is the Greyhound Inn and the Purple Badger,  15 mins or so by car is the Britannia Inn, King Arthur and the Ship Inn to name but a few.   All of the above sell great food. The Greyhound has its own micro brewery onsite, and tours are available upon booking, and most public houses and local stores sell the Gower Brewery's award winning Gower Gold. 

If the sea air makes you hungry or you fancy some speciality wines and/or ales, please feel free to have a chat with us when you are here and we would be happy to recommend the perfect place for you what ever your fancy takes.

Walking

Many people visit Gower for the walks in and around this area of outstanding natural beauty, whether inland through woodlands, hills, forests and fields or the stunning coastal walks or historic castles. Being only 50 m from the Gower Coastal Path we are ideally situated to take advantage of the lovely scenery and wildlife - by following the path you can reach Weobley Castle with its infamous Salt Marsh Lamb or continue your way through Landimore to Llanmadoc and the Brittannia Inn for a spot of lunch.

Jump on the Gower Explorer Bus and discover new destinations or even if you walk to a planned route you can easily jump on a bus and be returned to the top of the village.  There are a variety of sites to help you plan your trips.

Castles & Churches

Gower is extremely rich in history with caves, cairns, castles and churches, and our own in Llanrhidian, St Illtyd & St Rhydian dates back to the 11th century and the Templars.  Llan means Church in Welsh.

Although Gower itself can be a very spiritualistic place, the local churches and chapels are well worth a visit and cover a number of denominations. All visitors can be assured of a very warm welcome.

Being a next to the sea you can be sure there are castles and Gower has its fair share. The nearest being Weobley Castle about 30mins walk along the picturesque coastal path or a 5 min drive.
