Llanmadoc itself is a quiet village bordering National
Trust land in the North West corner of Gower.
It sits under Llanmadoc hill, a hill of historic interest giving breathtaking views in all directions. It is also bounded by Whitford Bay nature reserve, Camarthen Bay and the Burry inlet. It and its neighbouring village, Cheriton, have two ancient churches - Llanmadoc being 13th century and Cheriton 14th century.
Llanmadoc was chosen as the "Calor Village of the Year" in 2009 and the village boasts a traditional village shop and post office. Home produce is supplied from villagers and volunteers on a daily basis.
The local walks and quiet sprawling beaches are within easy access of Forge Cottage. Whitford Burrows offer an abundance of flora and fauna.
It is an ideal place throughout the year for birdwatching. There is a village pub within easy walking distance that provides food and drink - eliminating the driving factor.
Gower itself, Britain's first 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' offers almost everything in a small area that the visitor may require, while also being an ideal base to explore West Wales, the Brecon Beacons and the Valleys.
On rainy days Swansea is only 30 minutes drive away. Local activities include walking, swimming, beach & rock fishing, surfing, pony trekking, hand gliding and numerous golf courses.
