The King's Head, Gower

UK Wales South Wales The Gower Llangennith

At the tip of the Gower Peninsula, Britain’s first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The King’s Head in the village of Llangennith has long been a favourite with surfers who come to ride the waves at the north end of Rhossili – a four-mile stretch of golden sand that regularly features in lists of the world’s best beaches. There are two bars, with beams and exposed stone walls, in the ivy-clad 17th-century inn: the top bar has more than 100 whiskies, including Wales-made Penderyn, and the dog-friendly bottom bar is the place to sample gins like those from The Gower Gin Company, distilled in nearby Port Eynon. Most of the beer comes from the Gower Brewery; sip the best-selling Gower Gold cosied up to the wood burner in winter or on the terrace in summer. Traditional pub food and stone-baked pizzas are on the menu and Tuesday night is curry night; “Dragon’s Breath” – lamb curry in a hot tomato and leek sauce – adds a local touch. Accommodation is housed in three separate buildings: the “Town House”, where you’ll find the family rooms, and two barn conversions. Rooms are spacious with contemporary-rustic décor (some have sea views); kids and dogs are welcome and there’s a lockup for surfboards. But it’s not just about watersports here; The King’s Head organises trail running and rambling weekends – the Gower Coast Path wends its way around the peninsula for 39 miles – and there are myriad activities in the area, from archery to bushcraft.
