Holiday Cottages in Oxwich & Slade


As you travel along the A4118 through Gower, the hamlets of Penmaen, Nicholaston and Oxwich are signposted.

Penmaen and Nicholaston both sit at the foot of Cefn Bryn, the “spine” of Gower and are less than half a mile from each other.

Penmaen is a superb location from which to explore both Cefn Bryn and the beaches of Tor Bay and Three Cliffs.  The small car-park, which is also a bus stop, is an excellent base if you are driving and the paths are clearly signposted to access both the beach and hills.

Slightly further down the road is Nicholaston which also has it’s own areas of exploration and enjoyment.  From here, you can wander through Crawley Woods down to the easternmost part of Oxwich and with winding paths and old trees, it’s a route children love to take.  

Above Nicholaston is a path that takes you up to Cefn Bryn and its views over Gower and on a bright day, the mountains of Brecon can easily be seen from the summit.

Just past Nicolaston is Perriswood, a falconry centre that offers archery and other sports for people of all ages and not far further on is the ruin of an old castle keep that marks the turning left to Oxwich Bay.

Another of Gowers stunning beaches, this long stretch of sand is backed by a long line of dunes and is a favourite location for local fishermen to launch their boats from the shore.

The Oxwich Bay Hotel is located to the far west of the beach offering food and drinks throughout the day.  For something more special, try the fare on offer at the Beach House Restaurant. Specialising in local foods, it has an excellent wine list and offers a great view of the sea from all tables.

Sat above the bay is the hamlet of Slade and the remains of Oxwich castle, another castle ripe for exploring with its authentic bedrooms and kitchen area.

All in all, this part of Gower has visitors coming back time and time again as there is so much to explore, see and do – make sure it’s on your list.
