    The Gower Peninsula never fails to deliver breath-taking views wherever and whenever you visit. It has received numerous awards for its cleanliness and beauty and was recently a finalist for ‘Britain’s Favourite View’ with Three Cliffs Bay. Gower frequently features in the ‘best beaches’ listings in the national press and in the top ten places to go walking (The Rambler’s Association). Another favourite is Rhossili – the most westerly point of the Peninsula, which comes to a dramatic end with Worm’s Head.
