Three Foodie Reasons To Visit Gower

Wednesday, March 22, 2017


The Gower peninsular is one of the prettiest places in the UK.  In fact it was the first spot in the United Kingdom to be names an area of outstanding natural beauty.  So, we think it is well worth a visit.  However Gower isn’t just famous for being pretty.  It is also famous for food.  So let’s take a look at three of the best food festivals in the Gower Peninsular.

In the summer Gower gets hot hot hot, not just because of the summer sun but also because it pays tribute to the hottest capsicums around.  The Gower Chilli Festival is a really cool family event which takes place over two days.  You will find street food companies and assorted craft stalls with plenty of chili specialists on hand to guide you through the various bites on offer.  There is a great kid’s zone where you will find lots of free events and a fantastic funfair.  For the adults you can take part in the Chilli Cook Off Competition and try some of the chilli cocktails which will heat you up and cool you down on the perfect summer day.  You can camp at the event or just pop in for one day.  There will be loads of live music too! So it might be a hot, cool event.


Mumbles held the inaugural Oyster Fest in 2012.  This was to help build up interest in the Mumbles oyster as there was a desperate need to restore the humble mumble oyster.  It is a 4 day festival which spreads out across Gower, Mumbles and Swansea Bay.  You will see local schools taking part, celebrity chef cooking demos, sea shanties and lots of bands.  Oysters and other local seafood will be on sale throughout the festival and you can try the Oystermouth Stout, which is a local legend in this coastal town.  Oysters not only make you happy, they are also an aphrodisiac, so your holiday in Gower could be a little more romantic than you planned.

Gower Heritage Center holds loads of food festivals but one of the best is the Cheese and Cider weekend.  If you love cheese and Cider then you need to head to Gower on the 7th May.  It’s a celebration of welsh cheese such as Snowdonia Cheese and Caws Cenarth offering you a chance to sample some really great local products.  There will also be award winning cider and perries for you to get your tastebuds around


If you are going to head to out for a break in the UK then why not make it a foodie holiday? You can camp, stay in a B&B or check out a gorgeous spa hotel, whatever you choose Wales has got to be the top choice for a fantastic break.   It is one of those destinations you can head to with children, dogs or simply on your own for a little retreat.  Maybe we’ll see you there, munching on cheese, oysters and chillies or chilling out in the sun with a delicious local stout?

Stay Gorgeous
