The Chaffhouse is perfectly located 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 Chaffhouse 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 good quality 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.

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 Chaffhouse 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 and a wonderful location for a family beach holiday with it's safe sandy beach. 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 iconic Worm's Head, a giant rocky promontory pointing out into the channel.
