The Gower peninsula, Britain's first designated area of outstanding natural beauty, extends 20km westwards from the city of Swansea. The peninsula is an ageless delight, with its attractive landscape of cosy villages, farms, castle ruins and common land, bounded by 40km of awesome coastline and world renowned beaches. Situated on the western edge of the peninsular, you will find the most breathtaking of all Gower's beaches, Rhossili Bay. From Worms Head in the south, to the tidal islet of Burry Holme to the north, the three mile sweep of golden sands is a constant reminder of the splendour of Gower. It is here, at the foot of Rhossili Down, 200m from the beach, embraced by farm and moor land and an extensive sand dune system, that you will find Hillend.
