Coastal Paths of GowerExplore the coastal paths

No Gower cottage holiday would be complete without exploring its beautiful costal paths that link many of the bays. Langland Bay for example is 2.5km from Caswell Bay, 2.5km from Limeslade and just a 15-20 minute walk from Mumbles. Stroll from bay to bay and take in the wonderful panoramic views. Of course, you can always stop by in a picturesque seaside café for a well-deserved break.
