Nice Covid safe little shop, limited entry, hand sanitiser and one way system. A lot of very nice gifts and great cards on sale. Purchases support the National Trust so very worthwhile.

Some would say it's great to have the National Trust here in Rhossili, however it is the same old same old trust. They don't like to be seen to help locals who live on the area or even local suppliers and are not always keen to help or promote them. Hard nut to crack here. Where ever you are the shops are the same UK wide. Boring!! Instead of taking from the community why not support the community and be seen to help them not just for example accessible access to parking in narrow areas. These Big wigs who sit at the top most probably never left their chair. ♻️…

Response from richw819, Manager at National Trust Rhosili Shop
Responded Mar. 10, 2020
Hi Tracey, thanks for the feedback. The commercial team at Rhossili are working closely with a number of suppliers and businesses in the local area to help deliver a warm Gower welcome to all of our visitors- with the added bonus that all profits are then reinvested in the care of the area for everyone to enjoy. In the shop, we have an extensive array of gifts from suppliers based in Rhossili itself, Pennard, Murton and Gowerton- as well as slightly further afield; and our new branded souvenir range has been developed with a local artist too. This is in addition to our quality National Trust range that is available elsewhere in the UK which delivers the quality and provenance that you would expect of Europe's largest conservation charity.

The Shop is quite tired and stocked solely for a certain demographic ie the more well-to-do elderly visitor. Its quite expensive and not at all suitable for everyone. The visitor centre is a misnomer as, apart from a few leaflets and an article about Dr Who it has nothing to do for visitors - unless one wants to purchase a mediocre abstract picture. It is not suitable for less able people, having steep stairs The somewhat surly staff member we talked to inside the shop wasnt very knowledgeable and seemed more interested in trying to sell us a membership rather than answer us helpfully. The man in the car park was far more helpful and also knew a lot about the wildlife in the area. Whilst the view of waves breaking over Worms Head is exhilarating The whole area gave us the impression more of a precision museum piece, rather than an unspoiled piece of nature. Sunflowers and lupins (the lavender field was awful by the way) may look attractive to some but certainly dont fit the impression that this is after all meant to be medieval farm strips. Maybe medieval cops would be more appropriate? Two stars for the view only…

The shop sells the usual NT stuff. We found the staff here very helpful about local features, and their local maps of walks were really useful.

Called in after our visit and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of gifts as well as being able to get coffee and cold drinks. The staff were very friendly and informative.
