Spring Autumn and Winter: The apartment affords a fabulous vantage point to watch the ever interesting tidal changes and to explore Gower. Many guests use the apartment as a base for exploring further afield or visiting the many interesting heritage sites in Swansea. The cosy flame glow fire will make you eel at home in the evenings and even in winter the mild microclimate of Caswell Bay will enable you t sit outside and enjoy the fresh air when the sunshine's.

Weather and natural environment: The South coast of Gower has an extremely mild climate. Caswell Bay in particular enjoys a sheltered location tucked behind its westerly headland- a unique microclimate. The sun shines on more than 260 days and if there is a storm or rain it soon clears up , usually bringing a fresh weather system from the South West. The vegetation in the sheltered bays and valleys of South Gower reflect this equable climate and the vegetation is lush and abundant. Perfumed wild flowers abound in spring, gorse and heather blanketing the cliff tops and headlands and the coves have verdant ivies and wild garlic blossom as well as elegant cypress trees.
The tidal range in Caswell Bay means that there is always an opportunity to explore the rock pools and caves that line the sandy beach at low tide. Starfish, anemones and crabs as well and limpet and mussel fields are exciting to discover amongst the caves and platforms. At low tide it is possible to take the beach route to nearby beaches like Langland.

West of Swansea is the famously beautiful Gower Peninsula- the first area in the whole of the UK to be declared an an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty-AONB. Caswell Bay is stunning. At the entrance to Gower lies the famous village of Mumbles. This is where Dylan Thomas spent his leisure time in the Mermaid Inn, now a restaurant, and where you will see bobbing boats , enjoy harbour walks, numerous bistros and cafes and a wide coastal path for walking and cycling. Formerly the track of the famous Mumbles railway, there is now a summer train running the whole length of Mumbles and Swansea Bay that is a delightful way to get around.

Local attractions are many and various including natural geographical attractions like coastal and valley walks, the famous beaches of Three Cliffs and Rhossili and cultural attractions in Bishopston, Mumbles and Swansea all in close proximity. It is also easy to go further afield to the Black Mountains, Dan Yr Ogof caves and the Brecon Beacons.

Other Activities: cultural activities, theatre, museums.
