Gower Peninsula, South Wales : National Trust Guidebook Paperback / softback
From Rhossili's seemingly unending stretch of sand to the wilderness of Cwm Ivy; few places are as unspoilt and lovely as the Gower Peninsula.
It's certainly not hard to see why this varied landscape, tucked away on the South Wales coast, was the first place in the UK to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This guidebook takes an in-depth look at key areas of the Peninsula, including their history and wildlife.
Discover caves that were home to Prehistoric people and smugglers' haunts; where to find otters, wading birds and rare plants; and how the writer Dylan Thomas once got stranded on Worms Head overnight.
Seven walks with step-by-step instructions, ranging from gentle 1-mile wanders to longer, more challenging excursions, are the perfect way to get to know the Peninsula by foot, while a fold-out Spotter's Guide helps identify species you'll spot here, including birds, butterflies and plants.
