The Gower Peninsula was the first UK area to be awarded the status of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty., with The Gower Coastal Path providing a superb way to experience the varied landscape this area has to offer e.g. limestone cliffs, sandy bays, woodland, moors and open hillside.
The Gentle Gower holiday in October is based at the comfortable Oxwich Bay Hotel, on Oxwich Bay. The hotel is located just 10 metres from the beach and our walks will mainly be from the hotel, through such mixed delights as nature reserve, woodland, cliff tops, open fields, dunes and sweeping sandy beach. On one day we’ll take a trip by minibus to the breathtakingly panoramic Worm’s Head area at Rhossili. The nearest train station to Oxwich Bay is Swansea, about 15 miles away with good bus connections to near the hotel, so you can use public transport to reach this somewhat remote but beautiful destination.
Price includes: 4 nights full board in ensuite twin rooms; & transport to walks for Worm’s Head walk. Single rooms available if you book early – £15 per night supplement.
“Very well organised, excellent guide who goes to a lost of trouble to prepare the walks and choose good places to visit. Accommodation very good (food and service excellent) First visit to the Gower and did not disappoint. Lovely day walks in a variety of locations and habitats.”
“Great holiday which I thoroughly enjoyed. Nice bunch of people and good accommodation. But the place and a guide who loves it made the holiday. The walks were beautiful and just the right side of challenging and Gaynor knew a great deal about Gower. The variety of environment – woods, hills, beaches – was just right too.” Val
