Gower National Park: The Perfect Sports Getaway
Gower National Park, the first place in Britain to be designated as an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, is the perfect destination for all sports people wanting a chilled, yet fun and energetic break from the capital. The Gower offers a perfect haven for any city individual in need of a break within easy distance (157 miles/252.61km) for a weekend getaway. Activities range from an array of bustling water sports opportunities from surfing and sailing to kayaking and caving (http://www.the-gower.com/attractionsandactivities/inthewater/inthewater.html
), and from walking along coastal routes (www.glamorganwalks.com
) to abseiling, climbing and coasteering. Some of you may be fortunate to have equipment and experience in many of these sports, but for those of you who don’t, fancy a change to pounding the pavements grab a ‘taster’ session with one of the small and friendly companies!
This area remains untouched by development and disruption allowing a genuine appreciation of its extreme contrast in topographical makeup from the expansive wildlife estuary in North Gower over the wild moor of Cefn Bryn, to the sloping pastures, striking limestone cliffs and long idyllic beach’s seen in the South – where else could you find such a diversity of beauty in such a small area? With this in mind, no other destination could provide such a sporting yet beautiful weekend haven with such accessibility and comfort!
Whether it is a weekend break or perhaps a slightly longer break, Gower National Park offers everything you could need for the perfect escape to the coast!
