If there’s one thing we all need right now, it’s to rediscover our Happy Place or maybe even find a new one …

Where’s your Happy Place? Is it a particular place, spending quality time with someone you love or just a state of mind when you feel relaxed and stress-free? It’s our mission to help as many people find their Happy Place as possible in 2021 – right here in Swansea Bay!

So now we can travel again in the UK  – we want to give you all the information you need to make your Happy Place a reality! (Please always check your nation’s Coronavirus guidance before you visit – as things can change very quickly.)

First, sit back and enjoy our new video – it will help you visualise your Happy Place!

So let’s break it down – is there a Happy Place secret formula? Probably not, it’s something unique to you – but we’ve got some ideas to help you find yours …

Holiday – that’s the first crucial ingredient we all need …

Air – fresh, and lots of it, carried in on a sea breeze …

Present – be in it, enjoy the moment, with the time to savour it …

Place – the right one for you, somewhere cosy to curl up in …

Yours – a special time in a lovely location … just for you.

That’s your checklist – measure that up against our holiday menu below until you find the perfect combination to make you smile – there you go – you’re halfway to Happy Place already!

Location, location


Coast, countryside or city break? Or maybe try a little bit of everything – and enjoy an ice-cream sundae of a short break! The city of Swansea’s beautiful bay is just the start, the quirky little village of Mumbles gives way to the succession of breathtaking beaches on the Gower Peninsula (and to the furthest point – only about a 40 minute drive) so you really can have your sundae and eat it!

Stay your way

We’ve got a wide range of accommodation to choose from – glamping pods with a glorious view, cosy cottages in the countryside or city centre hotels with all the trimmings!  They’re all raring to go and can’t wait to welcome you – in fact they’re ‘Good to Go’.  This means that they’ve worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and have carried out a risk assessment.  This can give you the confidence to relax and enjoy your stay.  So you can do what you want, when you want. Pizza for breakfast? Why not if it makes you happy!

Feed your happy!

Whether you’re craving a cappuccino, packing a picnic or looking forward to a romantic dinner for two – many of our delicious restaurants and cafés are now offering a choice of a dining in or takeaway service – perfect for our ‘do it my way’ style Happy Place Holiday! (Minimal washing up too!) Always check before you visit – you may need to book a table to dine-in.

Take it away! Dining in

Go outdoors

It makes you feel good, to feel the earth under your feet and the blue sky above you – take a breath – and hello Happy Place! Maximise that moment with a ramble along the Gower Coast Path or a woodland walk. Take up kite-flying, play boules on the beach or just walk hand in hand on the sand…
