Half Term Adventures started with a Boom!!

Wow! What a brilliant few days we've had last week and this, we've been blessed with mild temperatures and plenty of rain which can only mean one thing. .......


We were over the moon to see some people returning to us for a second time. Its such a compliment to us to know that we must have done something right the first time for folks to be booking back for more fun!

Even Finn (he's got a paragraph on our team page) hooked up with an old canine friend!

With more warm weather to come if you're staying in Swansea, South Wales or Gower we can't think of a reason not to give us a bell and add a little bit of RipnRock to your half term too!

Check out a few of the images of the last few activities and if you need any more persuasion  to pick up the phone then read this lovely Trip Advisor review we were left by Martin about his family fun with us :-)

Catch You soon!!

Brandy Cove- witches and stubbed toes

Brandy Cove is situated at the end of a valley that runs down from Bishopston, Swansea.(If you're looking for surfing then go to the end)

It is a quiet and secluded rocky cove with some strips of sand at low tide, twenty minutes walk from Pyle Corner, Bishopston. Alternatively you can walk around the coastal path from Caswell, great care should be taken on this route as the path clings to the edge of steep cliffs. 

Due to its rocky nature, it tends to be more popular with locals escaping the summer crowds or famiies who love exploring caves, scrambling on the rocks and rock-pooling. Many a stubbed toe has been suffered by those brave enough to swim here!

It really distinguishes itself from other Swansea and Gower beaches by its spooky tales. Old Moll, the Witch of the caves who spread illness, pestilance and misfortune everywhere she went. The haunting screams of the murdered Mamie Stuart. The clunks and clicks of rowing brandy smugglers through the sea mist. The history of the Roman lead mines. 

On reflection, maybe the best time to visit Brandy Cove is on a still and moonlit night.....if you dare!!!

(Surfing- Sheltered from SW winds (ish) depending on the tide and sand levels, you may find a surf able wave here on mid-low-mid tide (ish!)  maybe) Big wave surfers will find a wave off the VERY shallow reef west of caswell on the biggest swells.
