Off the living room is a bedroom with a bunk bed sleeping 2 people. The ground floor is headed throughout with under-floor heating very cosy during those chilly winter evenings.

A spiral staircase leads upstairs where there are 3 bedrooms sleeping 5 (single beds), 3 (one bunk bed and one single bed), and 2 (one bunk bed). There is also another shower/toilet room. The upstairs is heated with radiators in each room.

Outside there is ample parking and at the back of the bunkhouse is a patio area which catches the evening sun , perfect for barbecues.

The location

Hardingsdown Bunkhouse is the perfect location for the huge variety of activities that the beautiful Gower Peninsula has to offer. There is a wealth of safe sandy beaches, some of which are manned by lifeguards and easily accessible and others that are more secluded, but definitely worth the effort. The beaches and coast-line offer a wide variety of activities such as swimming, surfing, canoeing, fishing organised coastal boat trips, kite-sailing, wind-surfing, rock-climbing to name a few.

There is a fine network of footpaths and bridleways suitable for walking, mountain biking and horse-riding throughout Gower and access from the bunkhouse could not be easier. Also, within a few minutes drive on both the North and South sides of Gower there are a number of National Nature Reserves, the nearest being Whitford which is a significant area of ornithological importance.

A number of golf courses can be found on Gower.

Other places of interest include, ancient monuments, eg King Arthur's Stone, burial mounds at Parkmill, Iron-Age forts on Hardingsdown, castles at Pennard, Oxwich, Weobley and a Heritage Centre also in Parkmill.

Local shops, pubs and tearooms are nearby and one pub in particular is within easy walking distance.

All information on many of these activities is provided at the bunkhouse, however, if you just want a bed for the night or need a holiday just taking things easy, that can be provided too.

There is a regular bus route (No. 16 service) from the centre of Swansea out to Llangennith. Telephone First (local bus services) on 0870 6082608 for information and timetable.

Our area

With plenty to occupy everyone, from those who prefer the peace and tranquility of the countryside to those seeking a more energetic and active break, the Gower Peninsula, Britain's first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers visitors a range of activities throughout the year. Some of these activities can begin directly from the bunkhouse as we are ideally situated as a starting point for walking and cycling the extensive network of Gower bridleways and footpaths.

Llangennith beach (5 minutes away by car) is one of the best surfing beaches in Wales and the South West. It is also an excellent venue for canoeing, kite-sailing, wind surfing and swimming. The dramatic backdrop of Rhossili Downs behind the beach is a favourite haunt for para and hang-gliders, and the view from the top of the Down (the highest point in Gower) is both famous and stunning, overlooking the might Worm's Head, a giant rocky promontory pointing out into the channel.

The National Trust's Visitor Centre and shop is also in the village of Rhossili about 15 minutes drive from Hardingsdown Bunkhouse. Much of the coastline around Gower is owned by The National Trust, securing the future of these fragile parts of Gower for generations to come.
