West Mead is strategically located next to the links golf course at Langland. On either side of the house, and along a lovely cliff path walk (or through the golf course) are two gorgeous bays with sandy beaches.

Caswell Bay is a large expanse of golden sand, popular with families as it has a lifeguard presence during the summer months. There are several kiosks selling beach toys and snacks and also the busy all year round ‘Surfside Cafe’, a cosy place even in mid winter in which to enjoy a hot chocolate in front of the log burning stove. Caswell Bay can be reached in approximately 5 minutes on foot.

Langland Bay, also a family friendly beach, is overlooked by the stunning Langland Bay golf club. It has a beachfront brasserie called ‘Langlands’, a further ‘Surfside Cafe’, several tennis courts, beach huts and ample parking.

 

Further into the Gower, boasts some of the most unspoilt countryside, with amazing natural wonders and some of the most magnificent beaches, such as Three Cliffs, Oxwich and Rhosilli. Much of the cliff paths and related land is managed by the National Trust.

In addition, the area is well known for the outdoor activities (including several golf courses) that can only be fully enjoyed and appreciated when surrounded by such natural beauty.

The region also boasts strong links with history, arts, and culture. The performing arts are well represented with many cultural events, venues (including the Brangwyn Hall and The Taliesin), museums and art galleries, and enthusiasm for everything from famous choirs to orchestras. From Dylan Thomas to Richard Burton, Tom Jones to Catherine Zeta Jones, the region has produced much talent.
