New Venture

New Venture

We have a project with a view to expanding to offer our retreat breaks in the Wye Valley, Monmouthshire, South Wales (as well as the Gower, Swansea)
So if you have ever thought of exploring the Wye Valley and getting away from it all in a stunning part of Wales, read on – or if you haven’t yet heard of it – here’s something you could very much enjoy.Set amidst a wooded valley, where the river Wye winds its way past Tintern Abbey and picturesque villages, and un-spoiled Countryside. The area has been a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1971.
Our location is a short drive from Tintern in a picturesque village, a three bedroom house. The property provides a wonderful setting for getting away from it all with a beautiful garden and views over the valley, and from the house and decking.  It is both private and peaceful yet convenient enough to buy groceries in our nearby shop and there are the most stunning walks from the doorstep. Including the scenic Wye riverside with its picture postcard cottages, woodlands etc.
We do hope that you’ll visit at some point.  We are offering short stays. Also with a view to running future courses and sessions locally.

Three Cliffs Bay

Three Cliffs Bay’s characterful three cliffs are captivating and unique. Walk alongside and feel dwarfed b

y their presence. You can even walk underneath through a cave of rock pools, where emerging each side is like a different world – one fringed by delicious waves and the other a sandy beach that stretches miles inland.

 

As a place to get away from it all it can hardly be beaten, especially as access issues mean that cars are unable to get within reach so visitors really are restricted to visiting on foot. This means that it never gets as busy as other more accessible beaches, preserving its unique landscape as wild, rugged and untamed.

You have to keep a look out for the tides here as there is an ever-changing landscape and the sea comes right in, engulfing the base of the ‘three cliffs’.

What to watch out for

Check out the wildlife and sea life here as this area is unique in being National Trust property and a Nature Reserve. Three Cliffs Bay can hardly be beaten for those that love to watch birds and wildlife, sea creatures and shells. You also have the river winding its way through the valley home to many birds who inhabit the woods, river bank and mudflats. 

The coastal walks and unspoiled countryside surround small picturesque villages such as Southgate. Local amenities include: shops, cafes as well as the Gower Heritage Centre, 

 

 

 

Three Cliffs Bay is part of the ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is one of Gower’s most photographed beaches and it has been nominated as one of Britain’s best beach. 

Three Cliffs Beach

A spectacular shoreline of sand dunes, salt marsh and of course, the signature three limestone cliffs. A particularly photogenic part of the Gower Coast Path and a great spot to stop for a picnic. The area is a real walker’s paradise with with its rich varied terrain, dramatic landscape and breathtaking views. Three Cliffs Bay is part of the National Trust and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is also a nature reserve. On a practical note, it is a good idea to take a picnic with you, and also note that there are no public toilets at Three Cliffs itself.
Stay safe, this is one of Gower’s most beautiful beaches, but can be wild too – watch out for strong tides and currents at all times. Because of this, it is advised against swimming at Three Cliffs Bay. (NB the next bays along – Tor Bay and Oxwich Bay are both good for swimming and water sports)

Pennard Castle

Set on the hillside above Three Cliffs Bay it is one of the best places to watch the sunset and with its views towards Three Cliffs it can hardly be beaten, described by many as having Britain’s best views
