Things to see and do nearby
- South Wales
South Wales is a region rich in natural resources. Beautiful valleys which once saw the growth of some of Britain's greatest industries, offer visitors magnificent scenery and glimpses of the past. Much of the outstanding natural beauty of the area remains untouched. It is a land of contrasts, mountains and moorlands, forest and farmland and magnificent stretches of unspoilt coastline. The National Trust's interests in South Wales include large areas of the Brecon Beacons, Pembrokeshire and Gower, as well as the Dolaucothi Gold Mines, spectacular Aberdulais Falls and the Tudor Merchant's House in Tenby.
- Gower Peninsula
The Gower peninsula is a stunning unspoilt coastal landscape, 5,500 acres of which are owned by the National Trust and was the first place in Britain to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. An exceptionally mild climate, picturesque villages, free-roaming ponies in large areas of open common, ruined castles and a wealth of archaeology add to its enchantment. South Gower boasts internationally renowned beaches of rocky coves and golden sands. On West Gower the expanses of Rhossili and Whiteford beaches and the famous landmark, Worm's Head, are popular with visitors. North Gower in contrast provides a sweeping estuary of tidal salt marsh grazed by ponies and sheep, while the beautiful seaside village of Mumbles and the city centre of Swansea are just a stone's throw away.
