Cheriton sits in the north west corner of the Gower Peninsula in South West Wales. The village, part of the county area of the City of Swansea, is 13 miles, 20 km, to the west of the city in a delightful rural area. The parish church is dedicated to St Cadoc and dates back to the 13th century.
Some of the peninsula's best beaches are within close reach of Cheriton. Rhossili Bay lies south west of the village and has superb views of Worms Head. One of the Gower's most fabulous beaches it is a perfect spot for rock pooling, fishing, surfing, bodyboarding and swimming (visitors to the beach should be aware that the tide rises quickly).
Broughton Bay is a long stretch of beautiful golden sand, and can be found just west of Cheriton. It is popular with surfers as it has an excellent longboard wave, but if you don't fancy the water, there are plenty of scenic footpaths passing close by.
The Gower landscape is criss-crossed with delightful walks to near and far. From wide stretches of golden sands, open cliff-top grasslands, through sunken lanes in the wooded countryside ....the choice is yours.
