*Gower AONB

'Gower's network of lanes, cycle routes and footpaths lead you through breezy coastal landscapes, scented with bracken, sea salt and wild garlic. The woodlands ring with the calls of blackcaps, warblers and goldcrests, and there are always seabirds wheeling over the cliffs. In spring, guillemots, razorbills and kittiwakes nest on Worms Head's furthest ledges and puffins occasionally make a guest appearance ...'

Starting from
The Gower Peninsula, South Wales, Swansea

'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.'
