The Gower Peninsula

One on one? You're crazy.
Best walk to 3 Cliffs is from Pennard village -very quiet and very beautiful:)
never did that, 3 cliffs is beautiful though, went there a lot, I used to run from my house in Newton, down to caswell bay, along to langland bay, and back up to Newton, a cliff top run for part of the way:cool:

I recommend Pembrokeshire too. But with the current state of the pound, I reckon every good beach in Britain will be packed this summer.

Rollem, let us know dates of when you're heading Gowerwards (or even Pembrokeshirewards) cos we're very nearby in Swansea and we know a few nice places ;) :)

The Gower is packed to the gunnals in the summer to the point of tailbacks on the country lanes. Campsites are very, very expensive, and it just ain't as nice all round, really.
We went to Llangennith in August one year and the campsite was full when we got there - luckily we managed to persuade them to let us into the family area, it was very very busy indeed. Strangely though the beach was almost deserted.

In May it will be OK I would have thought.

Hello,

Not been in here before... is it like walking into a Welsh pub, and revealing how English I am when ordering at the bar, resulting in menacing stares? ;)

Me and the wife are heading to the Gower Peninsula on the Bank Holiday weekend, bit of sight-sseing, bit of surfing maybe. Also checking out the general area and Swansea in case it's where we decide to move from London.

What do people recommend we see and do? Best beaches? Decent surf schools? Decent restaurants? National Trust properties, walks, etc, etc.

Cheers everyone :)
Oxwich bay hotel right on the beach beautiful spot
You can do some electric powered surfing as of April

i lived in mumbles in the 80s, probably changed a lot since then but it was lovely then, loads of pubs along the mile (obviously as students we had to do the mumbles run and drink in every one:D ) go to caswell bay and walk along the cliffs to langland bay, lovely walk (i used to do my runs along there) three cliffs bay, beautiful, head out to oxwich as well, and head for some of the villages on the penisular near swansea, can't remember their names now, but some lovely pubs along there
Oxwich bay is a beautiful spot

That’s probably libellous or something Bahnhof Strasse.

I just stayed at the Oxwich Bay hotel with a free luxury upgrade because when I booked it I asked for the luxury upgrade but forgot I had to pay for it by the time I stayed there. So I argued I hadn’t been told I had to pay for it and they just cancelled the bill. (I remembered on the way home).

Whoops.

Maybe I'm muddling it up with a hotel in Norwich, dunno. At least I haven't defrauded them...
