Local Area

One of North Gower's most popular coastal walks can be joined from almost the doorstep of Brandy House all the way to Rhossili if you desire. A glorious walk through the gentle countryside of North Gower along the Wales Coast Path.

The Great Salt Marsh is famed for its past use as a firing range in WWII, enormous population of wintering birds, its ponies and its salt-marsh lamb.

Weobley Castle is nearby, situated on the Wales Coast Path, a medieval fortified manor house. It's a great place to take photos of the 14th century castle and the spectacular views. CADW opens the castle year round except for the Christmas period, and for a small fee you can soak up the atmosphere and picture the de la Bere family going about their daily lives.

The village next along the Gower coast is Llanmadoc which is bequeathed with the very popular Brittania Inn pub/restaurant, post office, shop, café and caravan/camping sites.

You can explore Whitford sands beach which is an incredible adventure with its woodland, sand dunes, sea, light house and when the tide is out you can walk on the sands all the way round to Broughton Bay, Blue Pool and Llangennith.

The absolutely charming coastal village of Mumbles is just a short distance away and is located to the west of The City of Swansea. The village itself offers a full array of quality restaurants and individual boutiques with beach side promenade that meanders along the coast with coffee shops, parks, art galleries, boutique shops and ice cream parlour's en-route.

Alongside our award winning beaches, scenic coastal paths and Marina, Swansea is blessed with great sporting facilities. With championship golf courses, Olympic sized swimming pool and full array of water sports, horse riding and outdoor recreational activities are available.

Insight into the history of Landimore

Landimore's history is fascinating and fruitful, providing many accounts of different tales too many to divulge now.

Landimore, at it's busiest point was used as a thriving port. Boats would dock and aid the shipping of coal via the great Pill before making their way out to the estuary.

Looking out to the estuary, you will see today a hut on stilts standing proudly knowing the important look out job it did as an observation tower during World War II.

On the land to the side of Brandy House you will notice a shallow pool of water called the tan pit', once used as a tanning pit where they used to dye leather. Or if you believe ancient stories, it was used to burn the bodies of fierce Danish invaders.

Directly outside Brandy House you will notice a large, white stone of bolder size. Its place there has been permanent since builders tried to use it as part of the original dwelling of the now Brandy House. They built the stone into the wall, the next day the whole wall had collapses, this was then done again and yet the wall collapsed again. The builders decided to return the stone to its spot, built the wall excluding this stone and behold the wall did not fall down. This stone is known as The Fishermans Stone' and legend has it that the fisherman named Wm. Flewid habituated resting himself here after returning from his day working on the sands, he warned the builders not to use the stone in the building no good would come of it!
