Route directions

  1. From Llanddewi churchyard, turn left along the track. At the left hand bend, where there is a Public Footpath sign and also a Gower Way marker stone, go over the stone stile, and take the footpath to the right, keeping the hedgerow on the right.
  2. Cross over a stile (which looks like a gate) and continue straight on through the field and through a gate at the far end.
  3. Walk down through some scrub and turn right along the farm track (which is very close to the road from Knelston to Scurlage).
  4. On reaching two farm gates next to each other, go through the left hand gate and go obliquely through the field, aiming for the houses that can be seen in the distance.
  5. Cross over a broken stile, and go straight across the maize field.
  6. Turn left at the end of the field, and follow the farm track past Newton farm house on the left.
  7. Where the track divides, take the right hand branch and cross over the stile.
  8. Walk diagonally across the field towards a stile on the skyline (with no hedge on either side of the stile).
  9. Continue in the same direction towards the gateway in the far corner of the field, by Pilton Green farm (National Trust offices).
  10. Go through the pedestrian gate and continue to another gate in the far corner by some barns.
  11. Go over the stile, past the barns and through the farmyard to reach the Scurlage to Rhossili road (B4247).
  12. Cross the road with care, walk left for a few yards and then go straight on at the Public Footpath sign.
  13. Continue straight on this footpath, keping the hedgerow on the right, through several gates until the sea comes into view and you reach a Wales Coast Path sign.
  14. At the Wales Coast Path sign, turn left and follow the path above the cliffs for around a mile, until the Coast Path turns sharply right downhill. At this point, continue straight on along the track to reach the village of Overton.
  15. Follow the track, which becomes a minor road, through Overton, and turn right into Boarlands, a cul-de-sac of modern bungalows.
  16. At the bottom of the cul-de-sac, take the footpath on the left, which leads to the road at Port Eynon. Take care joining the road, as there is no footpath at this point.
  17. Turn left down the road to reach Port Eynon Church on the left hand side at the bottom of the hill.
