The small village of Cheriton is tucked away in the North West of the Gower peninsula. It is a rural village said to have the most beautiful church in Gower, The Church of St Cadog. It also boasts the oldest inhabited building in Gower, a 15th century glebe house, built for the order of Knights Hospitaller of St.John.

It is a superb base to explore Gower from and relax away from the urban bustle. A walk from Cheriton church through the neighbouring Llanmadoc village, down through the wooded escarpment and Cwm Ivy woods will be worth it for the glittering expanse of sand dune, forest and estuary landscape and the original cast iron Whiteford Lighthouse you find at the end! Footpaths lead up a wooded valley to Stembridge and over the hill to the village of Llangennith.

The hamlet is part of the Llangennith, Llanmadoc, Cheriton community network
