Three Cliffs Bay

The local area

Gower
The surgery is located on the edge of the Gower Peninsula, the first place to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in the UK. The peninsula is only 18 miles long but with over 34 miles of varied coastline from sandy coves, sand dunes and sprawling beaches to rugged cliffs and salt marshes, Gower has to be almost unrivalled in its geological makeup over such a compact area.

Each year thousands of people visit Gower, recreationally. Llangennith is one of the top Welsh beaches for surfing.

Oxwich Bay

Oxwich Bay, pictured behind the campsite, has been voted as the most beautiful beach in the UK.

 

 

 

Rhossili, with the famous Worms Head, has been voted as one of the best places to see a sunset in the UK and even Dr Who has landed his tardis there in recent years!

Gower has miles of footpaths and bridleways, is full of nature reserves, ancient monuments and castles and offers you the perfect opportunity to relax and explore at your own pace.

Mumbles

Mumbles promenade

The gateway to Gower is a little village called Mumbles. Historically it was a fishing village and you can still see rows of colourfully painted fisherman's cottages lining the lanes. These days, it is a bustling little village full of exclusive boutiques, shops, galleries and restaurants. When the sun comes out in Mumbles, so do the people, strolling or cycling along the promenade, having their photo taken by the monkey on the Victorian pier, visiting the Medieval castle or simply sitting and having an ice cream overlooking the working lighthouse. Mumbles certainly has an appeal, a special character, a quality all of its own.

Swansea

Swansea itself is probably most renowned as the birthplace of the Welsh playwright, Dylan Thomas and a special tribute to this legend can be found amongst the museums that you can visit.

Swansea has two beautiful parks, Clyne and Singleton which house a variety of plants and some rare species in the botanical gardens in Singleton. The best time to visit Clyne Gardens is in May when "Clyne in Bloom" has a magnificent display of azaleas and rhododendrons.

There is a vibrant night scene along "Wind Street", that over recent years has become more locally known as "Wine Street".

The exciting ongoing SA1 waterfront development in the maritime area of Swansea promises to bring more SMEs into the area as well as providing high density waterside housing, as has been the case in the similar area of Cardiff.

Further afield

A short car journey will take you to the Afan Valley and Vale of Neath, where there is an extensive bike trail and fantastic waterfalls.

One hour on the motorway and you can be in Cardiff with all the attractions that you would expect from the capital city or in the other direction you enter Carmarthen and West Wales.
