Setting Description:
The surrounding countryside is some of the most beautiful in Britain. Swansea is only 35 miles from Cardiff, the capital of Wales, and has direct road and rail links to London and all the major cities in the U.K. The wonderful and varied landscape of the Gower Peninsula is close by and was the first place in Britain to be designated as an “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.” Spectacular cliffs, lovely beaches and walks are only a few of the peninsula’s many features. There are opportunities for surfing, swimming, walking, boating, fishing and other maritime pursuits.
