After months of speculation and years of trying, it is official the National Trust have bought the car park above Rhossili Bay, Gower. They have invested £3 million to acquire prime parking and access to my favourite surf beach. Read the guide to Rhossili Bay here.
To cover the cost they are putting parking up to £4 for the day, but also introduce a £2 two hour short stay charge.
But this suddenly makes becoming a National Trust member an interesting proposition. At £60 for individual membership which includes free parking, it looks like the National Trust have gone into the surf season-ticket business!
The new car park charges come in on Good Friday 2015. Bearing in mind the Trust have the car park on Pennard Cliffs too, with great access to Pobbles Bay and Three Cliffs Bay Beach Guide, I am becoming a member. Molly says it is ‘a no brainer’, DimExcuses.
