Parkmill, Ilston, Lunnon and Llethryd

Parkmill is a very wooded area, set in bottom of a valley and is home to the Heritage Centre, which is well worth a look around. More information and photos of this area can be found on the Pennard Burrows and Three Cliffs links.

You would be unlikely to visit Ilston as a matter of course, unless you happened to be staying there or in the nearby Lunnon. It is a quiet, beautiful little hamlet set in the valley above Parkmill, with a stream meandering through the village and past the church - you really could be transported back in time. The former quarry is now a nature reserve.

I've also included the hamlet of Llethryd on this page. Llethryd has no amenities of its own and is located in central Gower, the nearest village being Ilston. It consists of only a few buildings, so unless you were actually looking for it, it would be quite easy to drive through without knowing that you had been there. Perfect if you want to be away from the crowds but within easy travelling distance of all that Swansea and Gower has to offer!
