Things to do in Penrice, South Wales

Penrice is a very picturesque, small village set in the heart of the Gower peninsular, near to Oxwich and Three Cliffs beaches.

The village comprises a small green, surrounded by cottages and St Andrew's church. The private Penrice Estate dominates the area, including its landscaped gardens and lake, C18th mansion and C12th castle. The Gower Show is held annually on the estate, which has been in the same family for 29 generations.

From Penrice, there are walks up to the Cefn Bryn ridge with amazing views over Gower; or down to Oxwich beach and Oxwich castle. There are beaches, cliffs, woods, dunes, limestone ridges and historical buildings to explore. It's a really stunning, unspoilt part of the Gower and well worth visiting!
