Reynoldston is situated on the Western slopes of Cefn Bryn, in the heart of Gower. It is thought to have derived its name from one of the early Lords of Gower, Reginald de Breos.

Reynoldston is the intersection of North and South Gower and has the advantage of sharing the views of both landscapes. From the top of Cefn Bryn, the second highest point on Gower and whose prominent skyline dominates most of the views, you can wonder at the breathtaking scenery.

On a clear day, you can not only see the coastline of the peninsula, but over the Bristol Channel to Lundy Island, Devon and Exmoor, North towards the Brecon Beacons and West to Carmarthenshire.

Arthur’s Stone pictured above is a Neolithic tomb. There are many legends and tales associated with it. One in particular speaks of a local miller, who cut a piece off the stone to use as a millstone, but once it was apart, was too heavy to move. The separated piece has laid in its fallen state since.
Another legend mentions that the stone was a pebble in King Arthur’s boot. once he had removed it from his boot, he threw it across the water and it came to land on Cefn Bryn. Watch out if you are around on Old Year’s Night (New Year’s Eve). The stone is supposed to get up and go down to the sea for a drink!

The village also has a strong connection with the Lucas family who have been part of Gower for 500 years. They built Stouthall and had strong connections with the Salt House at Port Eynon and the Old Rectory in Rhossili. Stouthall can be seen as the grand country house at the Southern end of Reynoldston towards Knelston.

St George’s Church, Reynoldston

St David’s Church, Llandewi

Llandewi, Swansea, SA3 1AU

The church is said to have been built by Henry de Gower, a 14th century Bishop of St David’s. The chancel is not in line with the nave but inclined to the south: there is a theory that this is a ‘weeping chancel’, deliberately built as a reminder to worshippers that when Christ was crucified, he leant his head to one side; or may simply mean that the chancel and the sanctuary were built at different times.
