What a beautiful area the Gower is! I went to university in Swansea many moons ago, but never ventured out to the Gower as I was too busy partying/I mean studying, in the city. We stayed at a fantastic campsite called Nicholaston Farm, directly overlooking Oxwich Bay and a short 10 min walk through Nicholaston Burrows (woods then dunes) to the beach. It felt like we had Oxwich Bay all to ourselves all week, there was hardly anyone on it. Had great weather every day except one, where we still ventured out to Worms Head and Rhossili Bay in the rain, sadly we missed low tide and were not able to walk out to the head of the worm, so to speak, but we did discover that the remote country house on the coast in the recent first episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day is the Old Rectory at Rhossili Bay, which was slightly exciting. We also went to Three Cliffs Bay and The Mumbles/Swansea itself, to see some old haunts. Took Dougal the dog of course and our new puppy Darcy the white miniature schnauzer, who adapted to our campervan lifestyle like a duck to water. Pics to come! ps Reilly the campervan did us proud yet again, 1500 miles in 3 weeks (what with Cornwall 2 weeks ago, and short trips to Essex and Shropshire in between). Didn't miss a beat. Had to top up oil a few times, will need to get the oil leak seen to, but cant grumble.
