About Pitton & Rhossili
It is a very pleasant walk down to Mewslade Bay through one of Gower's oldest farms and along a woodland path.
In the opposite direction a nearby footpath takes you up onto Rhosilli Downs with spectacular views down over the village and on a clear day views of Devon and Cornwall. The cafes and restaurant of the village of Rhosilli are a short drive away has a meal in either the Bay Bistro and Coffee House or the Worms Head Hotel where you can sip your drink whilst admiring panoramic views of Rhosilli Bay beneath you.
When you witness the majesty of Rhossili Bay, it is little wonder that it has received such acclaim. Voted the best beach in Britain in 2010 as well as regularly ranking highly in visitor reviews and opinion polls, Rhossili Bay has been the location of some notable recent events.
About The Gower
Gower was the first place in Britain to be named an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With cliffs and woodlands ringed by sparkling beaches, this tongue of land is so adored by walkers, birdwatchers, sunbathers and surfers, it’s been scooping awards ever since.
When, in early 2013, a travellers’ survey named Rhossili Bay Europe’s 3rd best beach (after Sicily’s Rabbit Beach and Playa de las Catedrales in Galicia, Spain), we were delighted, of course. But we weren’t particularly surprised. Rhossili, three-mile stretch of gleaming white sand, is the pride of the Gower Peninsula. Down in this corner of South Wales, the beaches are so gorgeous, they win accolades and awards all the time.
There are many places to visit on the Gower that are wheelchair friendly and have access. One of them being Perriswood Archery and Falconry Centre which was recently featured on the BBC DIY SOS programme as being wheelchair friendly.
