Located on Mumbles Road in Blackpill, The Woodman overlooks lovely Swansea Bay, surrounded by the botanical splendour of Clyne Gardens. Just five miles west of Swansea on the way to the glorious Gower Peninsula, Britain’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Woodman is an ideal point from which to explore the magnificent cliffs and seascapes, 19 miles of creamy-white, sandy bays, and the ancient woodlands and hidden valleys of Gower.

Clyne Gardens to the rear of The Woodman was once the grounds of Clyne Castle, and features a nationally important botanical collection including spectacular rhododendrons and exotic trees and shrubs. Across the Mumbles Road on Swansea Bay stands Blackpill Lido, popular with families, and Blackpill Beach, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and an important stopover for migratory birds.

But it is the Gower Peninsula that bewitches visitors to the region. A surfer’s mecca, Gower boasts some of the finest beaches in the country. Three Cliffs Bay, mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins’ favourite; family-friendly Langland Bay; and the stunning three-mile golden strand of Rhossili Bay, voted Britain’s best beach, and 10th in the world by TripAdvisor.

In easy reach of all the charms of Gower, The Woodman pub restaurant is the perfect place to begin or end a visit to the Peninsula. Serving a wide range of delicious pub food, seasonal specials and relaxing Sunday lunches, The Woodman offers a warm welcome and a cosy retreat for visitors to this lovely region.
