A 17th-century stone inn by Llangennith beach, on the beautiful Gower Peninsula in Wales - includes breakfast and late check-out

Behind a quaint and craggy stone wall, three 17th-century buildings make up the King’s Head Inn, in the core of tiny Llangennith. This unspoilt Welsh village is a madly popular surfing haven on the Gower Pensinsula, the first place to be crowned an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the UK.

You’ll wake up to an invigorating coastline of clear sandy beaches, green-topped limestone cliffs, intriguing caves and rocky bays. Throw in some medieval castles, Iron Age forts and crumbling churches and you get the appeal. Among warming rough stone walls and a down-to-earth vibe, the King's Head Inn keeps everyone happy with hearty British pub food, global favourites and zingingly fresh Welsh produce – and that’s before you’ve dived into homegrown ales from the local Gower Brewery.

Toasty underfloor heating is a particularly welcome treat in the smart and airy rooms, and come morning, you have a list of bracing outdoor activities to juggle between in this pristine pocket of the world.
