Quiet is probably an understatement. Not difficult to reach if you have average mobility, however there is a walk through the woods that is suitable for sturdy buggies or mobility scooters. Remember to take a bag to pick up your 3 + pieces of plastic...More

One of the few places, where you can go for a summer walk on Gower, without being over run by 100's of people ! Love the varied landscapes of dunes, old pine forest marsh and beach.
