Being born and raised on this beautiful coastline I am intimately familiar with every inch of what draws people to visit and relocate from far and wide. I live on a small holding with my wife and two little daughters in a small Gower village where I spend most of my time. when I am not attending to the animals and other duties, I love nothing more than fishing the Gower coast which has been a passion of mine since picking up a rod for the first time as a small boy.
