Things to Do and See:
Walk to Caswell Bay:
Following the lanes from the back of Bishopston village will take you to Caswell, a great little beach with lots of amenities, parking, beach shops and cafes. The beach is a good surf beach and is lifeguarded in the summer months.
Walk to Pwll Du Bay:
One of Gowers most secluded coves, a good hike to get yourself there but more than worth the effort. Take the second turning into Bishopston just before the road drops steeply downhill. Follow the lane through the village past the pubs and shops. After about 500 metres the road will drop downhill and turn sharply to the left. Find a place to park here and walk down the lane which leaves the road at the apex of the big bend . After 100 metres follow the road left and keep on this track eventually finding the cliff path.
Walk to Brandy Cove:
A beautiful cove but difficult to access it can be reached from bishopston if you park in the same location as the Pwll Du walk above. Alternatively it may be easier to follow the costal path from Caswell Bay to the east.
More About Bishopston
Bishopston (Llandeilo Ferwallt in Welsh) although quite easy to drive past is actually quite a large village. Its old core, with church and period cottages, is now surrounded by more recent housing estates and a large comprehensive school.
The village is thought to date back to about 1100 A.D. when it belonged to the Bishop of Llandaff, hence its name Bishopston. The church in the village known as St Teilo’s and is thought to be sited on one of the earliest Christian settlements in the area, likely dating back to the early fifth century.
