Overview

Located on Mumbles Road in Blackpill, The Woodman overlooks lovely Swansea Bay, surrounded by the botanical splendour of Clyne Gardens. Just five miles west of Swansea on the way to the glorious Gower Peninsula, Britain’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Woodman is an ideal point from which to explore the magnificent cliffs and seascapes, 19 miles of creamy-white, sandy bays, and the ancient woodlands and hidden valleys of Gower.

A warm welcome greats you at the door with full table service and fantastic sunday lunches. In the last 2 years the restaurant has improved significantly and it gets a thumbs up from us and is highly recommended.

Clyne Gardens to the rear of The Woodman was once the grounds of Clyne Castle, and features a nationally important botanical collection including spectacular rhododendrons and exotic trees and shrubs. Across the Mumbles Road on Swansea Bay stands Blackpill Lido, popular with families, and Blackpill Beach, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and an important stopover for migratory birds.
