Parkmill is situated close to the south coast of the Gower Peninsula in South Wales. It lies 1 mile north of Three Cliffs Bay, 5 miles west of the Mumbles headland, and 8.5 miles south west of Swansea.
The village was once part of 'Parc le Breos', a deer park created by John de Braose, Marcher Lord of Gower, in 1221.
Today the village attracts many visitors for its quiet and tranquil atmosphere, as well as its close proximity to the wonderful beach at Three Cliffs Bay. The magnificent golden sands are dotted with rock pools, which are particularly popular with children. Swimming, surfing, sea-canoeing and climbing can all be taken up here, whilst walkers will enjoy finding the Mitchen Hole caves just along the coastal path.
