Meet the team

Manager recommends: The Gower Peninsula is both beautiful and unspoilt. Take a stroll around Whiteford Point, which takes in the sand dunes of Whiteford Burrows and keep an eye out for the last remaining cast iron lighthouse in Britain. If surfing is your thing, Gower has some of the best waves in Britain.
