Description

Sandymeres is overlooking the Kenfig National Nature Reserve. The Reserve is a coastal dune system near the seaside town of Porthcawl. It hosts a variety of habitats including wetlands, dunes, the River Kenfig and Kenfig Pool. Steeped in history, the village has castle ruins and a buried village. Within walking distance, is the local pub, dating back to the 15th century, upstairs in the pub is still the Village Town Hall, and it has been a popular meeting place for well over 600 years. It has been used as a court room, market, coroner’s inquest room, Sunday school and even as a mortuary for shipwrecked mariners. Thanks to its varied history it is unsurprisingly though to be one of the most haunted pubs in Wales.
Sker beach is accessible by a 20-minute walk from the property, it is the most westerly of Porthcawl’s beaches and is only accessible by walking from Rest Bay or Kenfig Nature Reserve. Generally sandy and flat, it is mostly used by locals, making it one of the quieter beaches in Porthcawl. Classes as a rural beach it has no toilets or other amenities, and dogs are allowed all year round. For those wanting to take in a country walk or cycling, Margam Country Park is 4 miles from the property. Set in 1000 acres of glorious parklands, Margam Country Park offers natural beauty, history, wildlife, and a wide range of fun activities to make it one of the best days out in Wales.

About the local area

Swansea, situated by an enclosed bay, has a long maritime tradition and is overlooked by brooding hills. The city has spacious green places in the form of extensive parklands and a striking shoreline. The wider county of Swansea lies within the Gower Peninsula, which was in fact Britain's very first designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.

This area offers visitors a varied mix of wonderful seascapes and sandy beaches, historic castles and woodland. Here there is evidence of early human occupation with some of the oldest human remains being discovered in this area. At just nineteen miles wide the Gower Peninsula is a microcosm of contrasting landscapes and ancient history.

For those staying within the Swansea area there are no less 54 public parks which extend right down to the shores of Swansea Bay. Of note is Clyne Gardens & Country Park which covers some 16 acres and includes panoramic sea views, bluebell woods, architectural follies, meandering streams, ornate bridges and a castle! Additionally horticulturists will not be disappointed with a large collection of plants and shrubs to be enjoyed. In fact it's a good idea for gardening enthusiasts to also head for Singleton Park which includes the city's botanical collection. Here you can also find a boating lake, picturesque Swiss cottage and is the place where large outdoor festivals and music galas are held.

To get a real taste of the local area visit Swansea Market, this is one of the largest indoor markets in the whole region and dates back to the twelfth century. It's a great place to potter around to soak up the local `colour' with stalls selling anything from fresh seafood to flowers and jewelry, souvenirs and local artworks.

The Gower Peninsula is simply ideal for holidays where lovely beaches, fun and relaxation are required. With a dramatic coastline it's ideal for cliff top walks and is the perfect place to re-connect with nature - it truly deserves its title `Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.
