There’s so much to discover and enjoy locally as Gower is such a beautiful corner of Wales. Llanmadoc Hill is well worth a climb to see the sweeping sea views, shared by the small ponies who live there. As well as our nearest pub which serves food, the dog friendly Britannia Inn which is a short walk from the cottage, there's also the Greyhound Inn (Oldwalls, Llanrhidian), The KIngs Head (llangennith) - both dog friendly and both 5 mins by car - or The King Arthur Hotel in Reynoldston (10 mins drive), which doesn’t allow dogs inside, but does provide bowls of water and a safe place where you can tie leads.
The local beach Whitford is about a 20 minutes scenic walk away, and the beaches at Oxwich, Port Eynon and Rhossili are about 20 minutes drive. Three Cliffs Bay beach is just 10 minutes by car.
The best beaches for surfing are Llangennith and Broughton Bay both just a 10 minutes drive away.
The village of Mumbles is a 25-30 minutes by car.
