Port Eynon Holiday Cottages

Port Eynon and Horton lay to the south of Gower, two beaches linked by a beautiful stretch of golden sand and dunes that on a summers day, could be a far-flung tropical paradise.

From fishing off the beach at Horton to a BBQ on the sand at Port Eynon as the sun sets, the location certainly has its admirers, and it’s easy to see why.

North Gower Holiday Cottages

While places such as Mumbles, Langland, Oxwich and Port Eynon to the south of Gower are popular destinations, the “hidden” beauty of Gower can be found in the north of the peninsula. 

The woods hide how close you are to the beach and with Broughton Sands a short walk away; you will probably have this 3.5k stretch of sand all to yourself as few people venture to this area of Gower. Alongside walks along the beach to explore the Whitford Lighthouse (at low tide) there is the Britannia Inn, one of Gowers best-kept secrets. This 18th-century pub boasts stone walls, large fireplace, bread oven and roof beams that some belief were taken from ships wrecked on nearby shores. Serving high quality, locally sourced food and drink, “The Brit” is a must for anyone staying in Llanmadoc or visiting Gower in general.
