A day out with your dog in… Swansea

    Dog-friendly day out tips from EverMore pups

    Why is Gower, Swansea a great place to visit with dogs?

    With more than 50 beaches to visit (with varying levels of accessibility), you have a variety to choose from. Coupled with the fact it’s an AOB, there are so many woodland areas to visit, too. And with lots of dog-friendly cafes, it’s an area that really caters for man’s best friend.

    Where would you recommend for walks or an outdoor adventure?

    • You will be spoilt for choice for beaches; some are more touristy, others more tucked away are generally frequented by locals (check the council website for summertime restrictions for dogs).
    • There is a long promenade from Swansea Centre all the way to the pier at Mumbles, which is great for anyone with mobility problems. It’s a good 10km long.
    • Penllergaer Woods just off J47 of the M4 is also a lovely place to visit.
    • Singleton Park, Parc Le Breos and Penllergaer Woods are great for doggie socialisation.

    What about dog-friendly cafes, pubs or restaurants?

    Stick to Mumbles or the Marina area of Swansea – there are plenty to choose from including Mermaid Cafe and Bar, The Front Room Cafe, Mumbles Pier Beach Hut Cafe, Zinco Lounge, and The Pilot of Mumbles.

    How about some dog-friendly accommodations?

    There are many dog friendly accommodations in the area, across a range of styles and budgets, including Park-le-Breos House (country house set on 70 acres), Clyne Farm (self catering cottages), the 17th century Kings Head Inn, the Mercure Hotel (on landscaped grounds with a lake), Beachcomber Swansea (B&B overlooking the bay), and even luxury glamping.
