The Gower Peninsula has a wonderful and varied landscape and was the first place in Britain to be designated as an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' (AONB) by the Countryside Agency. The peninsula surrounded by the Bristol Channel and the Atlantic Ocean, has become a haven for a wide variety of wildlife, birds and vegetation.
Scattering the landscape are historic reminders of the past. From castles, medieval churches, iron age fortifications, and prehistoric standing stones. All this against an awe-inspiring natural backdrop of hills, valleys, beaches, cliff tops, commons, woodland, dunes, marshes and caves. A vast populated history, stretching back as far as the Lower Palaeolithic times (250,000 BC), with long-established stories, whether they are folklore, legend or fact, are plentiful and furnish the rich and delightful tapestry of Gower.
