Book a Gower Peninsula cottage and discover the UK's original Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - a mass of limestone cliffs, butterscotch beaches, pounding surf and amazing flora. Little wonder Dylan Thomas was inspired to write such masterpieces.
This stunning region is the perfect backdrop for a plethora of recreational activities. Explore the Gower Way, a 35-mile route crossing the peninsula from east to west, passing some fascinating historical sites along the way. Or head for the Vale of Neath, known locally as 'Waterfall Country'. Enthusiasts might also be interested in the annual Gower Walking Festival. Other pursuits include riding, climbing, golf and all kinds of water sports.
Much of the coast is protected by the National Trust and, when it comes to beaches, the Gower boasts endless award-winning sandy coves and sweeping bays. From rock-pooling and sandcastle building, to sunbathing and sailing, a day on a Gower beach will be truly memorable. Pride of place goes to the magnificent bay at Rhossili, a mind-boggling, 3-mile stretch of golden sands popular with surfers. Other beauties include the tranquil setting of Pwll Du, Penclawdd for wild ponies and cockle-beds and Three Cliffs Bay for jaw-dropping views. For families, try Langland Bay, Caswell Bay and Port Eynon.
What else? Castles, caves and shipwrecks. The Gower Church Trail. A vibrant crafts and rural life museum at the Gower Heritage Centre. And some wonderful nature reserves - woodland, grassland and cliff-top - offering some fantastic wildlife watching opportunities.
So, whether it's a family holiday by the sea or a walking weekend for two, try a Gower Peninsula cottage holiday.
