Highmead is situated on the south side of the peninsula in Overton, a small village overlooking Port Eynon some twelve miles west of Swansea. They say that Port Eynon was named after a Welsh prince of the eleventh century who had supposedly built a castle here. Port Eynon with its quaint Norman church and 600 year old font and the Gower peninsula are full of history and there are many legends of smugglers and seafarers’ tales to uncover.
Port Eynon’s popular beach is safe for families with lifeguard patrols from spring until the end of the summer. From Highmead, walks open up creation and the natural world for you. Take a stroll along the sandy seashore, or explore the rocks and pools at low tide. Cliff top paths open up wonderful vistas or discover the varied wildlife along this unique coastline.
