As we stayed within walking distance from this place we thought we'd visit as we had a couple of hours to kill, I wasn't expecting much but left pleasantly surprised. We did the tour of the water mill and I think that made a big...More

Only £6 or so for entry (and if you are organised you can use Tesco Clubcard vouchers) but it wasn't a very inspiring visit for adults. Fortunately we visited for the food festival where the stalls made the trip worthwhile. With young children in tow...More

We visited when the food festival was on which was a bonus. We enjoyed looking around all of the different attractions through the centre. The man in the glass blowing shop was lovely, I bought a lovely necklace from him. Also the man in the...More

Great place for kids and adults alike. Event days are worth a visit. Had a brilliant time at the cheese and cider testicular recently.

We visited last week and found this place to be so poor that we left within an hour (and that included eating in the worse than greasy spoon cafe). The animal pens all look tired and run down with not much room or fresh grazing...More

My friends and I have been here for the cheese and cider festival before which has always been great fun, definitely recommended. Unfortunately it seems a bit lacking in excitement without the atmosphere of an event. We came down on a weekend to spend the...More

Hi there, I saw your review for the Gower Heritage Centre and noticed you've said that it was free ?? Just checking if you had a voucher or something as the website implies there is the usual entrance fee. Cheers
