History

Formerly a lifeboat station which was open in 1834, in response to the many shipwrecks in this busy part of the Bristol Channel. The station operated until 1919, when it was closed and replaced by a station in Mumbles. The building appears to have had many uses from a tea shop to a boatbuilders shed until it was gifted to the YHA by the Penrice estate in 1951. There is evidence of local industries, quarrying , salt extraction and oyster farming, plus the mysterious Culver Hole is just around the corner. The surrounding country is managed by the Nastional Trust, and there are numerous walks of varying lengths from the hostel.

Meet the team

Team member Vicky was a volunteer with the YHA before becoming a team member. She loves dancing along with cycling and outdoor activities. The best part of working here at YHA Port Eynon is the fact that the location is fantastic, and I enjoy meeting those guests who return each year and welcoming new guests to this unique part of Gower.

Team member recommends: Walks and beaches in Gower however a short bus ride to Swansea will offer swimming and recreation at the LC on a wet day alongside museums and art galleries. Gower Heritage Centre in Parkmill is a pleasant afternoon excursion.
