A city,

Swansea and Gower? you are going to run out of time. Too many beaches, too many walks and in places like Mumbles, too many nice shops. Once you're done, but only once you're done, you can explore the rest. The Brecon Beacons is in touching distance - you may be able to see one of the peaks from our window I think, Carmarthenshire is down the road and even Pembrokeshire further West. Cardiff too, you'll pass that on the way in, is less that an hour away. Quite handy if you're down for the rugby, and we may be able to get tickets if you're really nice, but you must support the team in red (or black if the Ospreys are there).

a seaside village,

Closer to home in Swansea, there's a lot to get around. Before you book with us, you need to know that every guest has to enter our competition. Swansea is, after all a great sporting city and known for birdwatching - Swans one week, Ospreys in full flight the next. Our National Pool trained so many medal winners for the ParaOlympics that if Swansea was a country we would have been 14th in the world. So, we like a bit of competition down here which is why in Milkwood, we've been timing our guests how long it takes to reach the closest things to us. Usually done on Sundays. Anyway, here's the best results to date...

a peninsula. Tidy.

Beach (21 seconds), national cycle route (15 seconds), best Leisure Centre in the UK (1 min 45 seconds), uphill water slide in the best leisure centre in the UK (4 minutes 23 seconds), touch a yacht in Swansea Marina (24 seconds), Dylan Thomas statue in Swansea Marina (1 mins 44 seconds) and Swansea City Centre Tourist Information Centre (2 minutes 05 seconds). At the end of the year, we'll announce the winner. First prize is that you may find yourself playing rugby for Wales on the wing but on the opposite side to George North of course. He'll hold our record (and you wont beat him).
