Beyond Pitton Cross and Rhossili the Gower peninsula itself being Britain’s First Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (1956) is very much a mix of small farms, open common and moorland, sand dunes and rugged limestone sea cliffs, criss - crossed by ancient footpaths and country lanes.  Small rural villages tuck into the hilly landscape, others enjoy the shelter offered by headlands and places like Rhossili brave an exposed cliff top position enduring the variable Atlantic weather.
