Gower Peninsula Coastal Path
Holiday Ref: Walka 314
“The wonderful and varied landscape of the Gower Peninsula (Welsh: Penrhyn Gwyr) was the first place in Britain to be designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) by the Countryside Agency on behalf of the UK government, and is one of only five within Wales. 2006 saw the Gower Peninsula celebrating its 50th year as an AONB, an accolade that has truly stood the test of time as you will discover when you spend some excellent walking time in the area“.
Within such an enclosed area the Gower Peninsula is surrounded by the Bristol Sea on the southern side and Atlantic Ocean on the western side, this has produced a haven for some of the richest wildlife and varied habitats in Wales and the rest of the UK.
Scattering the landscape in Gower are historic reminders of past ‘Gowerians’, from castles medieval churches, iron age fortifications, and prehistoric standing stones. All this against an awe-inspiring, natural backdrop of hills, valleys beaches, clifftops, commons woodland, dunes, marshes and caves.
With its vast populated history, stretching back as far as Lower Paleolithic times (250,000 BC), long-established stories, whether they be folklore, legend or fact, are plentiful and furnish the rich and delightful tapestry of the Gower Peninsula.
