Wales and the Gower peninsula in particular provide an ideal location for family holidays.

The peninsula is about 14 miles long by 7 miles wide and the golden sands and rugged cliffs of the south and west coast give way to the expansive salt mashes along the north coast. The interior contains lush valleys and wild exposed moorland and the diversity of habitats attracts abundant wildlife. Gower was designated as the UK’s first area of outstanding natural beauty (ANOB) in 1956 and its diverse landscape has lead to its being referred to as “Wales in miniature”.

The numerous megalithic tombs, Iron Age hill forts and other significant archaeological sites scattered across the peninsula demonstrate that Gower was first settled in the prehistoric period. The remains of one of the earliest orders of modern man, dating back to 24,000BC, were found in Goat’s Hole cave in Paviland on the south coast. Almost every village and hamlet on the Peninsula has its own church dating back to the Norman period and this influence coupled with the influx of immigrants from Cornwall during the industrial revolution has lead to Gower’s indigenous population being primarily English speaking. This has lead to it also being referred to as “Little England beyond Wales”.

Families who are keen to reduce their carbon footprint and those who are increasingly affected by the current downturn in the economy are turning away from overseas holidays in favour of UK based holiday attractions.

The Gower peninsula is renowned for its beaches and has always attracted visitors seeking the classic British bucket and spade seaside holiday. There is a wide variety of bays, beaches and coves along the short Gower coastline. Some are easily accessible by car and public transport, others less so, and some are remote with access over rough and sometimes difficult terrain. Those that are easily accessible tend to be commercialised with a range of beach side facilities. The others offer seclusion away from the hubbub of everyday life.
