OXWICH BAY, THE GOWER, SWANSEA
Last year's Christmas Gathering was a great day out and the twenty or so dogs who turned up had a splashing good time racing about on the beach - their owners apparently had a good time too - read all about it here.
This year it's been decided to have our yuletide, social gathering just after Christmas, on Monday 28th, when we could probably all do with walking off those Christmas "excesses". All WSSCSW members (and guests and family) are invited to come along - with or without your dogs - to enjoy a lovely day out in this beautiful corner of Wales.
We will meet at Oxwich Bay Hotel car park at 10.30 am
the hotel will be open for us to have a hot drink and use the loos before we take the dogs for a walk along the beautiful Oxwich Beach towards Three Cliffs where there is a river for a bit of freshwater swimming.
Low tide is at 2.00pm so there will be plenty of beach for the dogs to race around and, of course, there's some great sand dunes there too. People can do as much of the walk as they want or stay in front of the pub's log fire.
Gower Inn at Parkmill for Lunch approx 2.30pm
After the walk we plan to meet back at The Gower Inn at Park Mill where they serve some smashing pub-grub - so we can have a drink and/or a meal before heading off home with our, hopefully, worn out doggies.
As in previous years we’ll have a doggie bran tub – so can you please bring along a dog gift (no more than £2.50) for the dogs to choose their own Christmas present.
Please make sure you dress appropriately for the weather and terrain.
If you are using SatNav, the postcode of the hotel is SA3 1LS – which takes you to the centre of the village, so make sure you look out for the sign to the hotel.
Parking at the Hotel is free as long as you buy something there.
The public car park before the hotel is £4.50 for the day so we certainly recommend the hotel car park.
