As described by Swansea Council – “The valley is full of mystery and intrigue enhanced by its secluded nature.”, Bishopston Valley is steeped in history. With a variety of myths and legends, no wonder so many explorers come to discover this wonderful part of Gower.
Being the largest village on Gower, featuring three public houses, two beach coves, a rugby club (called South Gower RFC), a children’s park and having direct access to both Mumbles and Gower, this has proven to be a popular holiday destination. If you’re planning a getaway to South Wales for long walks, to take it easy, bring your pet or to soak up the sun on the beach; there is sure to be a self-catering property on this list for you.
Pwll Du and Brandy Cove bays are dog friendly all year round and we have the accommodation to match! These secluded, yet striking beaches are extremely rich in history. Legends stipulate that they were used for smuggling once upon a time, evidence of this and other workmen using the bays can be found on the Bishopston Valley Walk – see hidden limestone caves, secret rivers and get lost in the ancient woodlands and meadows.
The beautiful, traditional village of Bishopston has seen many public houses come and go in the history books, all we know is that there are 3 great pubs remaining. Serving food along with cold or hot beverages are; The Valley, The Joiners and The Plough and Harrow which has recently been converted into a gastro-pub. They all have parking and are very popular with holiday makers and locals alike, especially after a long day at Caswell Bay.
