The pretty village of Oxwich, is situated at the Western end of Oxwich Bay (above).

For a small village with a population of less than two hundred, it has a lot to offer. It boasts a number of thatched cottages, two castles and a National Nature Reserve with a wide variety of bird and plant life and if that just isn't enough, then there is always the bay with its glorious sand dunes, towering cliffs and shady woods.

Much of the traffic that travels to the bay bypasses Oxwich village itself, but the beautiful approach road travels down through the woods and out into the salt marshes and the Reserve.

Oxwich also has a close connection with the start of Methodism in The Gower Peninsula, as John Wesley stayed in this lovely little thatched cottage when he came to Gower between 1762 and 1773.
