Pet Friendly Holidays on The Gower

The Gower Peninsula, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just west of Swansea is a top spot for holidays with dogs. Un-crowded pet friendly beaches and gentle inland open countryside are perfect territory for year round walking holidays with furry friends and you’ll find an excellent choice of dog friendly cottages across the Peninsula as well as pet friendly B&Bs and seaside apartments. Gower Veterinary Surgery situated in Upper Killay has some useful advice and tips on visiting the Gower Peninsula with your pet, and are always on hand to assist visitors should pets need any attention during your stay.

Walks with Dogs on The Gower

Inland the beautiful hills of Cefn Bryn and Rhossili Down are awash with wooded valleys and open commons. The spectacular landscapes of the Gower are the big attraction for furry friends and their owners. It’s a great spot for coastal walking, particularly along the south coast’s dramatic limestone cliffs culminating in the magnificent spectacle of Rhossili Bay and Worm’s Head (National Trust). Pick up walking leaflets and find out about guided walks at the National Trust’s visitor centre and shop at Rhossili. Some coastal stretches can be rocky and precarious such as the crossing over to Worms Head at Rhossili and the walk to Culver Hole in the Port Eynon area. Dog owners will need to take care, and ensure dogs keep away from the edge of some high cliffs on the Gower coast, and that they are supervised and kept on leads near livestock.

The Wales Coast Path around the Gower is one of the highlights of the trail, stretching for 38 miles between Mumbles and Crofty. There are lots of great short walks you can dip into with your pet (visit the Wales Coast Path website for examples). The Gower Way, a peaceful 56km trail marked out by The Gower Society and the Ramblers, also offers spectacular interior walking with your dog away from the more popular coastal areas. This trail cuts through the interior from the lookout near Worms Head at Rhossili to Penlle’r Castell high up on Mynydd y Gwair.
