Rhossili Bay: Dylan Thomas’s award-winning beach

By / 5th February, 2016 / Uncategorized / No Comments

Is there a more romantic place than the beautiful, quaint village of Llangennith?!

The gorgeous landscape, a 4 mile stretch of  golden sandy beach a short walk down the grass banked lane, wild ponies grazing on the hilltops, our pub; a 17th century Inn bursting with history and with open fires in both bars and rustic slate floors…can you picture a better setting to spend your Valentines weekend?

In his story Extraordinary Little Cough, Dylan Thomas described the beach at Rhossili Bay as “the wildest, bleakest and barrennest I know – four or five miles of yellow coldness going away into the distance of the sea”.

It is also one of the most beautiful places in all of the UK – and recently won the TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice award for Britain’s Best Beach. It is not difficult to see why.

Dylan Thomas also wrote about our coast in his short story, ‘Who Do You Wish Was With Us?’ he wrote:

“… Laughing on the cliff above the very long golden beach, we pointed out to each other, as though the other were blind, the great rock of the Worm’s Head. The sea was out. We crossed over on slipping stones and stood, at last, triumphantly on the windy top. There was montrous, thick grass there that made us spring-heeled and we laughed and bounced on it, scaring the sheep who ran up and down the battered sides like goats. Even on this calmest day a wind blew on the Worm.” – Dylan Thomas

We can’t think of a better place to be on Valentines weekend with your loved one. So, with this in mind spoil your loved one to a romantic weekend in “sweet Llangenntih”…explore our coastline, coves and hilltops ; all packed with history and beauty. Then, in the evenings relax by our open log fire while sipping on a nice glass of wine, sampling some of our delicious homemade specialities talking about the day that has passed….What’s not to love!?

Sunday 14th February Valentines package:-

Staying in a Deluxe room B&B with rose petals sprinkled across the bed, candles and bath bombs at the ready in the bathroom and chocolates and a chilled bottle of Prosecco awaiting in the room for your arrival @ £149 (Based on 2 people sharing).

Call us on 01792 386212

Annual Leave Offer

It’s that time of year. You have some annual leave to use up, but don’t want to spend the day barging through queues of Christmas shoppers.  With Christmas just three weeks away, and hours of shopping and wrapping ahead, why don’t you spend a few nights treating yourself here at The Kings Head Inn in Llangennith and relax in the Welsh countryside.

As an early festive treat throughout December, we’re offering a two night Sunday-Monday stay, with the second evening half price. Stay in our double deluxe room priced at £109 and pay just £54.50 for Monday night.

As you may know, we’re situated in the heart of the Gower, an area of outstanding natural beauty and a spot where Dylan Thomas spent time writing his famous literary stories.

Wrap up warm and take a stroll on Rhossili Bay, voted one of the best beaches in the world.  Or cuddle up by the fire and tuck into a hearty traditional meal. Head Chef Liam Wilkes, prides himself on creating dishes made with local and seasonal produce all year round, including rich Welsh steak and Gower ale pie and cawl, a homemade Welsh broth of lamb and vegetables.

For the beer connoisseur in you, we serve a large selection of real ales all produced at our own brewery. The Gower Brewery opened in 2011 producing hand crafted ale using traditional methods and high quality ingredients.

For horse riders, there are stables at the inn for guests to keep their horses, and we also welcome a range of other pets from cats, dogs to iguanas!
