Guests will have the opportunity to walk along the cliff top and watch the sun set over the Gower Peninsula (the UK's first designated area of outstanding natural beauty). After a drinks reception, there will be a three course dinner with a Welsh theme. During the meal, entertainment will be provided by a local musician who will accompany herself with the piano, and will introduce guests to the delights of Welsh folk music, aswell as more recognisable themes.
